Aeroburner to M4 Driver, Worth It?

I am currently gaming a TM Aeroburner 9.5* driver, stiff shaft. We dont always get along but that is more about my swing as I tend to slice it. With the newest releases hitting the market the M4 prices have dropped a lot so is it worth considering? I have hit my friends M3 and liked it but I think I can do without the adjustability. Also, as someone who slices the ball is the D-type worth looking into or just get the normal one and work on my swing?

    You might lead off with a driver tune-up lesson to see if the slice is mainly swing-related. Make sure it's not a grip or a stance set-up issue.

    Then, do a side-by-side with the two drivers and see which one wins.

    Swing, swing, swing....first step.

    Have your swing checked as suggested already. Slice is a pretty common feature in the golfer population.

    After that. Is the Aeroburner stock? Could be too long and cause a slice. You will probably get the same thing from a new driver since they are the same length. I marked my driver at 44" on the grip... :| Better control. But check swing first before dropping dinero.

    Yes a stock Aeroburner. It has been suggested that shortening it a bit could help.

    Ive decided to take lessons this spring and focus on my driver first. $250 in lessons vs $250 on the M4 will probably see me hitting more fairways.

    Your driver is fine, there's nothing wrong with it. Your swing is flawed. Get lessons.
