    For what it’s worth, when the r7 Ti came out, it was also pricier than the steel version by I thought 100 as well.

    I think my eyes are bugging out though about a 65g moving weight. Holy ball flight adjustments.

    These look great, for sure, but they've highlighted a problem I've really only recently noticed.

    New technology came out in 2018 with Twist Face. Drivers only, not in the fairway woods. 2019 - now lets put Twist Face on our fairways. Next year they'll have the speed resin and red dots on the face, I'd imagine.

    Before it gets too anti-TM, Cobra did this with the milled face, Callaway did it with Jailbreak, and I'd imagine there are other examples.

    Either way, that M5 fairway looks absolutely incredible. I'm really excited to hear what people say about the weight. Its a lot of weight, but it doesn't look like its really moving that far - thats certainly a different school of thought compared to what other companies are offering.

    Well I’m not sure I’m gonna have any interest in these until they release a 3HL/4W option. Cause that’s what I want to replace my M4 3W with. Looks like I’m gonna try and get a great deal on a M4 3HL.

    Hahaha, nah, standard 3 for me, low loft fairways are not my friend!

    From what I’ve heard, the rocket was a necessity because theblaunch on the two fairways was so good, so going lower filled the voids fitting wise

    I had no problem launching the M5 fairway. I'm just excited that it was clean straight launch and nothing wonky or flared. Yahhh!

    Big time TM guy here over the years but drifted away since the 2017 M1/M2 release. The M3/M4 wasnt great looking for me. This release to me looks great and I think TM have potentially hooked me again
    And I need a 3 wood!!

    This is the one club TwistFace could benefit me in ad I square the fairway much better than the driver. Would be a fun tinker for sure.
