2017 M1... Crap!
« on: January 25, 2017, 07:53:57 AM »
Actually.... The exact opposite! 

 I hit the 440 version in 10. 5 with TiNi 60 stiff at the range tonight.   The TiNi felt heavy but flex was about right.   All settings were neutral.   Face was mid deep to my definition.   Again,  it was night and it's been raining non stop so can't see see how the range rocks behave when they land.   What is very interesting though is although a 10.5, it launches slightly lower than my modart DS 10.5 with Mavc.  Could be the TiNi  which I am absolutely  unfamiliar with.   Despite that,  hang time seemed a bit longer which tells me one thing... Stronger arc,  longer hang time = potential for longer carry and a lot more run=more distance.

Sound was not the best but much better than the Cleveland launcher comp which I thought felt and sounded bad.   Feel,  a bit clicky but again not bad. With all the carbon Composite,  I was expecting a lot worse.

So... Jury is still out but already soooooooo much better than the 16 M2.   I cant wait to try this again in daylight.

Taylormade knows how to make a great driver. Can't deny them that. I think a little hot melt usually improves the sound and feel dramatically.

I managed to compare the face heights of the M1 460 and m2 today.  I think the M2 is actually deeper face.  Didn;t have the M1440 to compare.  I;m kinda surprised.  Always thought the M2 was shallower faced.

Cool.  I'm still a tad interested in this over the other talked  about Usdms so keen for your review.

BTW, what are the physical demarcations for a tour head these days?

i had a bunch of the tour issued TM heads from 2017, they are good but they need to fit your swing.....ive hit bombs with them as well as big misses.  The main disappointment is that the driver was unpredictable for me.  It could treat me really well and then betray me.  Im sure its a great club for some but those wayward shots kill my score.  Ive had success with the 2017 M2 ( forgiving and long but sounds like crap ) and the 2017 440 ( very long and low spin ) and the 460 which is a blend of 440 and M2.  I did find that by adding lead tape to the M1 head, i got much better feel and control with the head but i quit tinkering with it because the King LTD just works too well to be left at home

There's demo in a couple of weeks with the Cobra as well.  Will try all then.  Still no epic here yet though.

Haven't even shafted mine up yet. Since November the only time I have swung clubs is when I demo'd the drivers and then 18 holes on a simulator in January.

We have snow on the ground still, plus I was in a car accident on 1 Mar that has wrenched up my back/neck that I'm going to physical therapy for. In the meantime I am enjoying the pain meds and muscle relaxers though! 😬😬😬

Sorry to hear about your accident matt. Hopefully you start recovery rehab soon.  I recently started working with a PT who was also a Titleist TPI certified trainer and the combination has been great.....Not only have i improved rapidly, I've improved my swing !!!   i hit a few 7 irons yesterday and my speed was at a all time high
