    For a major OEM, when a 'new' driver is released, the follow on is already in the works.

    The follow on to the follow on is the one that's in the works. The follow on is pretty much locked in from a feature perspective already.

    Point taken...suppose it depends on definition of 'in the works', but certainly the one you're referring to is probably at least in a conceptual phase, whereas the one I referred to has likely been prototyped.

    Given TM’s comment we are prob looking at a January announce, February release. Could be at the show in January, but didn’t go last year and may not this year.

    Prices just dropped on M5/6 here so safe to say new ones are coming

    Where are you seeing the price drops? Just curious as I’ll be ready to pick up the M6 as soon as it drops to $399.99.

    Sorry, should have mentioned. Live in Sweden and we usually start our sales earlier due to the shorter season here

    I hope they don’t make a new head just yet, as I just did a head to head with my G410 plus, and although they only had the 9 degree in the M5 I tested, I was able to set to higher settings, move one weight back and other to draw setting. I hit straighter and longer, so ordered the 10.5, so don’t make an M7 yet.

    I change clubs too often to be able to update my signature but here’s what I currently play

    Wouldnt matter to me if they made an M7, not sure what they can even improve on the m5. It is the best looking / sounding driver out right now imo.

    Check the bay. You may be able to land a gently used one for a song.

    I said the same thing about M3 and yet I gained 2-3 mph ball speed with M5. But I agree with you that M5 is the best looking, best sounding driver around.

    A non twist face option for the guys that still have trouble buying into that tech would be nice. It really wouldn't be that hard to have a third offering with bulge and roll. And... make it a compact head with a simplified two weight adjustment system for forward/ rear CG. #Unicornalert

    TwistFace is a TM marketing term for bulge and roll.

    I live and die by ping drivers, had all the new ones, swore never get rid of my 410. Well I had to retract that, got my M5 10.5 other day, and wow, if never hit yet, you got to. Lots of scratch golfers love the M6, but this is coming from a 8 hdcp, you can adjust that M5 so much more it’s crazy how I was able to dial it in. Set it up on range, played 9 yesterday, 18 today, hit every fairway, and good distance to match. I’m very pleased for now.
