Anyone playing his driver have any positive/negative experiences with it? I have read a few reviews most of which were from indoor testing. I’m coming from a g400.

The M6 is on my short list as I like the look at address..... any input would be great.
Thanks

    I went with the m6 and think I might regret getting rid of my M3 seems to be a loss of about 10-15 yards due to spin. The forgiveness of the m6 is beyond amazing though. So to each his own I suppose but it’s just like the M2/M4 point and shoot IMO. Great driver but playing in wet conditions not ideal for me.

    I am thinking of the M6 with the tensei orange ck 60 shaft in a 10.5 loft. It looks like this shaft will be lower spinning. From what I saw in the TM website there is no upcharge for this shaft....

    Hit the M6 on course today. Hit almost every fairway. Couple missed low on face and went straight. Little shorter then normal but dead straight. Can’t wait to get out again.

    I’ve game the M6 for 2 months. My G400 LST is now sidelined, because the M6 is a lower spinning club for me. I had the same shaft in both clubs (Evenflow Black) and the M6 produced a lower ball flight with more roll, thus more distance. I have since, switched to the AD IZ S7 shaft which I like paired with the M6 even more. Here are my numbers from Toptracer.

    3rd round with mine and it's staying. It doesn't miss left and it's extremely versatile. Played in a sustained 15mph+ wind yesterday. Into the Wind is tee it low and hit bullet fades that just ran, with the wind is tee it high and get those high launch low spin moon balls that carry forver. The F9 (which I love)launched everything high and punished slightly high strikes so going to stick with the m6 even though the F9 might produce a bit more ball speed

    2nd round with mine today. Ive got the Tensei CK Blue stiff that I ordered through Taylormade. Playing at 45.25". Super straight and solid feel. Put an 8 gram weight in it (grinded to 7 grams) for just under D3 sw.

    The M6 just feels so good. A few range sessions and a round. Very forgiving. 8 gram
    weight playing at 45” works very well.

    My M6 just arrived with a Project X Smoke 60 at 10.5 deg and cut to 45 inch. When I tested it the thing is long, low spinning but not too low... 2300 - 2500 rpm for me. More low to mid launch with low spin. Carries a long way and I am getting around the 160 mph ball speed that I couldn’t get out of my last couple drivers that claimed to be the longest out there.

    Have a few rounds in on mine now and really liking it. Coming from a '17 M2 - kept the same shaft - and the M6 for me is longer, more forgiving and better feeling. Maybe it's the twist-face (never tried the M3/M4) but every round I have a couple that at impact I would have said have no business being in the fairway that go very straight. Impressed so far. I'd say it launches slightly higher than the M2 although that could also just be loft variance in retail heads obviously.

    Gaming a M6 with Accra TZ6 and haven't had a straighter combo in a long time. Don't notice distance gains over my 2016 M2, however, forgiveness seems improved and looks are much better to my eye.

    I would suggest that anyone on the fence gives this thing a go!

    I am seriously contemplating getting an m6 myself, coming from 2017 m2 glad to hear other people are seeing a bit of improvement. Was hitting it about the same length as my current gamer, debating between m6 and the epic flash (I was hitting the flash longer but have a hard time switching brands). I think the m5 and m6 look the best of any driver out at address.

    Might pop my hzrdus black into a demo once my course opens up, will keep checking this thread for sure.
