These had my eye for a while. Picked up a lightly used 13.5 with stock Fuji stiff shaft on the bay for 3/4 of new price delivered. Will see how she goes.

Very interested in one of these as a 3 wood replacement. Matt, please let us know how it goes off the tee. Don't need this for fairway duties.

Was interested in this one as well. Please let us know how it performs, would like to get you idea on usability from the fairway as well.

What really makes me wonder: On the TM homepage and all their promotion pictures, the loft on the head says 11.5 ... but the only one they sell is 13.5.

You sure?
Can't see an 11.5 available anywhere and even their homepage just shows 13.5į.

So I got to hit this tonight with stock stiff shaft and I really, really like it. I can hit it off the deck better than the M5 FW and itís a cannon off the tee.

I thought it would have a very muted wooden like feel and sound but it was surprisingly crisp and springy feeling. Looks like its a hair shorter than my driver on the range but with the shorter shaft I definitely hit it a lot more consistently.

Went straight in the bag in the 3W spot and Iíll be surprised if it doesnít get the bulk of my tee shots on par 4s

Stock Fuji shaft? I thought these had Diamana shafts as stock. What length are you playing it Matt?

One thing I immediately noticed is that itís very easy to flight the ball just with minor adjustments to tee height. You can hit low lasers that roll or tee it up just a bit and hit high bombs with the same swing.

Honestly with the deepish face I was surprised how well it launched off the turf. Itís still a bit lower launching than optimal from the deck but it was a lot easier than it looked. Iím not usually looking to bomb 3W off the fairway into greens much anyways if Iím that far out Iím usually better off laying up to the 100 mark and going pin hunting with my SW.

I played my first 18 of the season yesterday. By the back nine I put the M5 away and just played the mini. Hit some great drives and honestly I think it carries as far as M5 because of the high launch I get with it. I also hit one about 240 off the deck with it on a long par 5. Honestly I could just get rid of driver and play this and 12 other clubs. Maybe itís the honeymoon but I love this club. I even said that yesterday when I crushed a high draw that felt amazing. ďI love this club.Ē
