TM M5 and Callaway Epic Flash sz.
« on: January 30, 2019, 01:01:03 PM »
Quick test on the range with these two compared to my Cobra.
M5 10.5* had the hzrdus smoke 6.0 70g and the Flash 9* had a Tensei Blue AV 60x.

No launch monitor data, so just my senses today.

The playing length is crazy, something like 45 3/4". Tried 5 to 10 shots with each and I was so inconsistent. Left right straight, pulls and slices. Started tinkering with the adjustments and gripping down at approx 44", all of a sudden they worked. Both of them were very straight, perhaps the M5 a touch more. A few things I noticed after 30 with each; the M5 is very low launch and neutral weighted, so I went back up to 10.5, had the front weight at the face and the rear weight out on the toe. The flash would need a launch monitor to see the numbers difference between 9* and 8*, either seemed good, but it's definitely more fade biased so I had the rear weight toward the heal.
They were both had slightly better dispersion than my Cobra. Would I buy either......no. Didn't like the sound/feel at all, especially compared to my Cobra. Too high-pitched and harsh feeling. The Flash did look better in hand that in pictures. Didn't like the M5 at all. Might try the M6 vs standard Flash next week. Ping G410 and Mizunos' very soon.

Shame they're not made with the 'Elf' titanium like the 727 was. Felt lovely.
