    Also should add that TEE just went in the opposite direction and the President said on THP TV it was because they had to.

    Iím okay with pricing moves because consumers speak with their wallets. We will see if it works. Interesting so little talk of driver price increase either, which will put them at the highest cost mainstream brand.

    I honestly think that is by design.

Itís kind of a pain with the 915f, would guess this to be similar.

    agreed, lots of slots in that head to get filthy. One of the reasons the xr fairway wood stays quite clean in my bag

    Holding the 65g weight in hand was pretty wild. It it a ton of weight to move back and forth.

    During the first presentation, I looked at it and wasn't sure what was going on. I thought for a second the screw was an internal weight to raise and drop CG. Then they moved to the next slide and it started moving back and forth and i was like "YES!!!"

    Also, M5 a hammer. I hit the ball a long way. Loved the profile.

    With these items out, I would expect the M3 and M4 would be vastly coming available for very good pricing. The question is are the new products that much better or should you just get the previous at the reduced pricing?

    I have the Rogue in my bag now, but wouldnít mind getting a higher lofted M4 with twist face as a secondary driver.

    I am really interested in this. But, after dropping 5 bills on a driver this year, I may have to wait and pick up a used one at the end of this season.

    Not a fan. Donít like my clubs to look like they were made for Captain America in an avengers movie. Did they try to match the shield? Lol.

    Theyíll drop a new one in July then right making these obsolete.

    Interesting take. To each their own, obviously (sample: the crown on your driver isn't for everyone)

    What makes you think they'll release another driver in July?
