  1. I'd like to see the G400 LST versus the M6 tested at 9*, both in house and on the course. I am interested to see what the spin rates are and the overall performance. For that matter, I'd like to see the G400 LST versus any of the new offerings, as it was considered the best driver of 2018 by many, or at the very least, the most wanted. Could use it as a measuring stick for the newer offerings to see if they actually outperform it or is the marketing buzz just hype with the 2019 lineup?

  2. 7y more and on course is big. let's say you hit a drive with M4 and you say I wish i was jus 5y more. hit M6 and it goes 7y more plus roll out on a course. you got your 5y you said you wished.

  3. James, in my humble opinion mate, this is just another platform that the golf Manufacturers use to sell their clubs. That's fine… More people are made aware of a product & more of the product gets sold. The, "Testing" doesn't hold much water tho. What I mean is, if a Manufacturer really could gain distance & could conclusively, scientifically prove it, they would. They can't, so they don't. With the Governing Bodies restrictions the limit was set some time ago. A properly set up environment, with all things being equal, & an "Iron Byron" type machine being used ( Eliminating human error), would prove this & that's not what the Manufacturers want people to see. ( & I can understand why).

  4. I would love to see a comparison between the newest drivers and and ones from 5-6 generations ago like Taylor made R11S or similar. Since some can only afford to change a driver every 5-7 years. That is where many would like to see the comparison and if there is a 20 yard gain from 2012 drivers. They can then upgrade to an M4 when they are on sale at 40% less.

  5. Good honest review. I think you could setup up either driver in a fit and the difference would be very small, most increases from the new line seem to be done with higher launch and lower spin, speed wise I think it's very marginal almost not noticeable

  7. If you build a club to the same spec defined by the USPGA they are going to be the same. They aren't going to be faster, longer or even more forgiving. A sweetspot is the same size in every golf club ever made. It can't be made bigger. Why are club manufacturers apparently spending millions on club technology that doesn't do anything and then charge you £500 for nothing.

  8. Well, let's see. First they gave us "Twisted". Now we've got "Drilled", "Filled", and "Screwed". Sounds more like a porn movie than a golf club. Guess next year they'll put a hole in the back? LOL!!

  9. I think Taylormade made a decision to approach a more optimal controllable spin rate with the M6 than the M4 – that was their big decision. Your spin numbers are similar to what I experienced when I extensively demoed the M4 – at that 9.5 to 10.25 head loft range it spun 2600 to 2800 which is good but could be slightly better – i.e. 2400. To get this lower spin number on the M4 you had to drop the head loft into the 8 range and that prevented an optimal launch angle. This 2400 range is exactly where the Titleist TS2 comes in at – whereas the TS3 comes in 2100-2200 range. I think the D6 will be the Taylormade Driver to use this year, similar to the way the 2016 M2 was the preferred driver on tour – but that driver is a 2200rpm driver and the reason why Tiger calls it the God driver. If the D6 can be set up at 8.75 loft and still get a good launch angle but get that spin down to 2200-2300 I think you will see a lot of the tour guys using it.

  10. How about one top shaft (Tensei Orange) with the newest driver heads from Titleist (TS3), Callaway (EPIC Flash), Cobra (F9 Speedback), TaylorMade (M6), and Ping (upgrade from G400 Max?). Why not compare yourself to a robot during such a test, LOL

  11. I'm currently playing the Callaway Rogue Sub-Zero @8° with a 46" House of Forged 49g shaft by Matrix and I gotta say I really like what I'm doing with that on the course… Would you be able to get a hold of that shaft and see what numbers you get with the Callaway Rogue Sub-Zero compared to the M4&M6 drivers?
