Taylormade M1 or M2 weighting

I am gaming a 2016 Taylormade M1 430 driver and found it to be a bit too light with the 9g front and 11g rear weights. I added a 13g in the front and spaced the 13g to the heel and the 11g towards toe. I added an 11g weight on the front/back slot towards the middle with the 9g just behind it towards the back of the slot. I didn't swingweight the driver but it feels about right, maybe just a tad heavy. I have an extra 9g and 7g weight that can be swapped for ideal weighting.



That said, has anyone else attempted to add multiple weights to add swingweight and/or heel-toe weighting for a bit more forgiveness? Thanks in advance.

    Your weights are wrong. The front track weight should be 5g heavier the the rear. Cutting to the chase, do a Google search for "M1 Pro Tip" for the the best advice you can get for the M1 430. Both weights in the back of the rear track.



    I play my 430 at 44 1/2" with two 15g (includes **** and plate) weights slammed in the rear track and a 50g shaft to keep the SW and club weight near stock. Bottom line, great driver.

    Thanks for the advise. I will look into this.
