Both responded, "the trade in bonus has ended." Gee, thanks for telling me something I already knew. My question was whether I'd lose my already-applied bonus if I returned the M6 product I purchased for a more expensive M6 product... I guess they didn't want the extra money.

    Have you received the 2 clubs? Not sure how you lose your bonus. If you canceled the hybrid part of the order your trade amount would be applied to just the Mini would it not? You are paying full price for the new product. TM is kicking in an extra 50% on your trade value. Or am I missing something?

    I hit the M5 14* on the range today, and it was solid, but since most of my 3 wood use is off the tee, the face is shallower than I like. I also had my brand new Orignal One Mini 13.5* and was able to swap the three different shafts from the M5 demo 3 woods for testing with the Mini head. I quickly determined that the stock Mini stiff shaft was a poor match but the Tensei Orange CK 75x is a great match for me. I had no problems hitting the much taller Mini off the fairway, in fact at 13.5*, the flight was very similar to the M5 14+. I will demo a few more shafts with the Mini head over the next week, but I'm sure this new club from Taylormade will be making its way into my bag for the season.

    I wasn't sure how it would work because the bonus applied to your order/trades only if your order included an M5 or M6 product. It did not apply if I purchased only the Mini.

    UPDATE: I'm going to post more about this in its own thread, because it deserves it, but TaylorMade reached out to me directly almost immediately after my earlier post. To say TaylorMade "made things right," would be a vast understatement. I am blown away with how quickly TaylorMade completely changed how I felt about the situation. I'll be keeping the hybrid, but I will also be purchasing a fairway wood to review in here. Thank you, TaylorMade!

    i hit it once in my most recent round. another low right bleeder that almost found the hazard. crazy thing is it was still as long as my playing partner’s drive that he hit well.

    i really like that i have a guaranteed fade option off the tee, that will still poke a good distance. just need to tame that fade and get it to launch higher. basically i want it to perform like my fitting, which this build has failed to do so far.

    It certainly is. Have you had anyone else hit yours to see how it performs in someone else's hands?

    High handicapper here.

    I recently scored a new M6 rocket 3 wood 14 degree with the Atmos 6s shaft in an eBay auction.

    Played a round yesterday - and it was great off the tee for me.
    Currently fighting a driver slice, and the forgiveness of this 3 wood makes it a great alternative for guys like me who would normally aim down the left side of the fairway and pray the ball stays near the fairway on the right.
