Now that the M4 has been out for a while now and several have used them extensively what is the general consensus on this driver? For those of you that have used the M4 how have you liked it?

    If you're a TM guy I'd rank it behind 2016 M2, 2017 M2, and M6.

    Big miss for me on feel, performance, and looks.

    All just my opinions though....worth exactly as much as you paid for them

    Hated the feel and performance. My friend had it and despised it. He switched to F9 and picked up a good 20 yards.

    I replaced a 16 M2 with the M4 and have regretted it ever since. I have never really been able to get it dialed in and it seems to go way right when I put a bad swing on it. The M2 felt better and was more point and shoot. The M4 is just the opposite but still in my bag. If you don’t mind the white, there are plenty of new 17 M2’s around and I’m sure the M6 will soon be reduced, just not to the level of the M4.

    The M2 outperformed the M4 for me and also for several of my buddies that are huge TM fans with nothing but TM in the bag. 2 of them went back to the M2 and the other one has changed shafts in his M4 about 5 times trying to find something that works.

    Interesting. I use to buy 2 or more drivers a year. I’ve had the m4 in the bag for almost 2 yrs. great driver. I also have the 3-wood, 3 & 4 hybrids.

    Played it all year. It's a solid driver. It replaced a 16 m2. It launches higher than 16 m2 and spins less. It definitely has right bias. I helped offset that by playing it in the upright lie setting. It's in a battle with m5 now...

    I’m sorry if this is a dumb question, but what do you mean by a right bias?

    Every hit with the M4 felt like I hit a thin toe shot on a blade.

    switched from 2017 M2 to the M4...mine is a tour issue head that had gotten some hot melt, etc. I found it had a much more solid/firm feel off of the face, definitely less satisfying on most strikes, but the face seems much more hot than my M2 was. I recently took it to hit on a monitor vs the M6 and they were very similar in ball speed, spin...main difference being the M6 launched higher than optimal for me so I lost a bit of distance there. Hoping to pick up a tour issue M6 when the 2020 TM drivers come out and the M6 prices drop.

    So would this driver help someone that consistently hits a fade or slice?

    It's more likely to exacerbate that left to right shot.

    You could try the upright lie setting. That calmed the right miss down a bit. You could also close the face. Really depends on if your slice is more face or path related.

    I think part of my issue in the past is swinging a shaft that's been too stiff.

    That can lead to a steeper transition move that can exacerbate a fade/slice as well.

    One of the main questions I have is - How forgiving would you consider the M4 compared to other drivers in the M series?

    I really liked the m4. In the 8.5 head during a fitting I had the highest balls speeds I have ever had with Any driver.

    I played the M4 and went back to old school RBZ Stage 2 Tour. Just so much more zip to it. The same shaft in both

    From address, I like the M4 the best out of all TM M series drivers. If struck well, it is just as long as any of the others.

    I disagree.

    For me, i find that the direction it goes it dependent on my swing. I’ve hit fades, slices, hooks and draws with it. It is as long as anything I’ve hit and it’s as forgiving as most.
