    M5 Tour 9 & 10.5 are b/o till 3/16

    M5 rocket fwy is 4/15

    M6 rocket fwy is 3/15

    Demand from presale is outpacing supply.

    Those date are for custom builds btw.




    That totally stinks to hear. Good for TM but bad for a lot of us who had sticks on order.




    I read a lot of threads on here, do you have things on order from every company or just use “I’m ordering that” in a more hypothetical sense?

    Not sure what this question has to do with this thread but I’ll answer it anyway. I had a EFSZ on order but cancelled it after seeing and hitting it at GG. M5 Tour and Rocket fwy is currently on order but the date keeps getting pushed back which is a concern. I may order the new PXG driver but trying to hold off until the weather breaks so I can get fitted outside by the PXG fitter in my area. If the Ping Blueprint irons come out they will ordered site unseen, same with the P7TW irons. Crystal clear now?

    To clarify my post,

    Those dates are a est time of when the product would be available to build if ordered today. If you have an order in the system already, you may see delivery sooner. Happens with every golf company, not just TM. Heads , shafts, and grips all go on backorder at some point.

    Has anyone looked closely at the M5 face and noticed any sharpie markings? I see like four sharpie dots (looks dark red) at different parts of the face. Any explanation for this?




    Likely a manufacturing process step...probably QC checks.

    I don't have mine in hand yet to see where the dots are at, but I know that as a part of the resin injection process they measure the speed of the face before injection and again after. These could presumably be related to those checks.

    Was just listening to the latest #TeamTaylorMade podcast and heard Bazz confirm 185cc as the size of M6 fairway, just as I had posted weeks ago. I was a little worried my memory was fuzzy on that detail, but apparently not.

    I attached a picture. If you zoom in, you can see the marks. Spoke to TM customer service and they said there shouldn’t be markings.

    Not worried about felt pen. Was told it shouldn't be there and confirmed that by looking at other faces at PGA Superstore. It is probably just a QC issue and should have been wiped off before being finished.

    The M4 driver I got from the Kingdom last year had the same marks.

    Yeah....he mentioned not "his" best shaft, so a lower spin shaft would help.

    Felt pen marks on the face have typically been on tour issue heads, they are used for testing (can’t remember if it was cor or one of the other measurements). They will come off after some use.

    I don't know what my swing speed is with a driver. When I'm hitting it well, I'd guess its going around 275-285. Which is pretty good for a 5'6" 150 lb guy that's never had any lessons!

    The only reason I haven't hit the 3wood is because I'm so accustomed to having a 5w in the bag.

    At some point, I plan on trying the rocket 3w as a potential driver replacement since I'm more comfortable hitting a fairway wood. Maybe its the smaller head, maybe it's the lie angle, or maybe I'm just mental.

    "Me and my golf buddy are usually the same distance but after buying this driver this week I've been like 20 yards further all day!" is pretty much my favorite driver review metric. I base all buying decisions off of it.




    Same. Hitting it farther than my playing partners is all that I care about really lol

    Went through a fitting and narrowed it down to the M5 in either the Mitsubishi Tensei Orange and Evenflow Blue... I loved the numbers of the orange but then realized that’s what they put in the model off the shelf and wondered if I should have gotten better looks at other options. Anyone have thoughts or reassurances on those shafts?

    Have had 3 and none with silver dots. Never seen photos of them either, just typical felt pen in the dead center on older TM heads and the more recent ones had 2 marks. Just my experience.
