So interesting... 2 friends were speaking to me about short small hybrid drivers and 3Ws...

1.  How's this TM mini compared to the Baldo Brassy for those who have had the pleasure of hitting and/or hitting them enough over a period of time?

2.  For you build, as it plays to 43.5 (?), how do you guys compensate for loss of SW?  Just lots of lead tape and lead tip etc?  Or is the head a lot more heavy to begin with?  Or are these meant to be played with a very light swing weight?

I had the Brassy. It was more of a blend of FW and 2 wood imo. Much shallower face. The TM is basically a small headed driver with a deep face.

Both feel great and perform well but I think they probably suit different players. The face on the Brassy was just too shallow for me to make it a go-to tee club and while I could hit it from the turf it was a bit of a chore to launch IIRC.

If someone were looking for a driver replacement/Fairway finder to me it’s a no brainer to take the OO. I think the Brassy is more versatile and better suits the player who prefers a shallower face.

I’m still in love with the OO combo I have. I cranked it down to 11.5 for the league tourney Sunday because the wind was up, and I was hitting mid piercing bullets that cut right through. And I just love the feel of the head on a good strike. We managed to win the tourney too! Although I’ll happily admit my partner carried me through the first format until I got in a groove.

Thanks Matt.

Stock mrc shaft is 60 plus grams so I'm gathering the headweigt is perhaps in the 210 to 220 gram range for it to play stock sw of d3?

Mine weighs 209. I've read that it feels head heavy. I think the opposite. I was hoping it was 215.....

I'm quite surprised it's only 209.  That's only 4.5 sw pts from a loss of 9 pts from a 45 inch driver all else being equal.  TMs website says stick is d3.  With a 60 plus gram shaft.  Your 209 weight is sans adapter?  Even then, that's some ways to go to make up another 6 sw pts assuming 45 inch, which means another 12 grams needed at the head end.

My OO deffo felt head heavy..
As Matt said the feel was Solid .
Tbh I think I screwed mine up by playing the OO at a longer length!

Yes 209 without the adaptor, which will add about 4g. I'll have an 85g shaft in this so hopefully the sw will feel 'normal' to me...

Ok.. a heavier shaft assumng not counter balanced will add swing weight.  But still some way off D3 I suspect if that is the target.
