    that m6 sole looks very similar to the speedback sole. and holy reduction in weight in the m6! 46g lighter sounds like a real challenge in swingweighting.

    between the two, i think m6 is more my speed so i would be curious to try it.

    is it just me, or is there little to no copy discussing the fact that there are freaking SCREWS on the face of the driver?! why are they there?

    i hadn't heard of the atmos orange shaft before. i'd be curious to learn more about it as an option in the m6.

    I am personally going with the Epic Flash (already put money down). So, I have to admit that I was a little nervous. If he would have seen a massive jump in ball speed, I may have had to rethink my decision. At the very least, as long as the Epic Flash is just as long as the Rogue and Epic, I am not leaving anything on the table by not playing the new TM drivers.
    Thats also just one person's experience with it. Either way you go, Im sure youll be happy, but dont get hung up on one persons thoughts, no matter who it is or what the product is. Shiels may see something wonky with the new Callaway driver too, doesnt mean its not good product.

    I think the screws are there to hold the resin injection in place on the inside of the face of the driver head. I think they're much less interesting than we all initially thought

    The soles look WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than the M3/M4. Heck, they look better than the 2017 M1/M2 as well. It sounds like they're bringing some real tech changes this year also, I kinda thought TwistFace was a bit of a stretch for a tech story.

    I'm undecided on the crown. I really liked the original M1/M2 crown, and I've been increasingly more and more disappointed with each release since.

    If you miss that far on the heel, no driver is saving you, no matter the tech. Lol

    This is a very good point.

    They must have an idea in mind but it will be very interesting to see.

    From a true sense I would say the screws are there to remind and show people that resin is in place. Visual tech works. Similar to the way jailbreak is shown on the sole.
