Long story short, friend has the new driver bug so he is willing to sell me his 2017 M1 440 with Rogue Silver for a solid deal (he has played it like 3 times so almost new.) I have been looking to drop a bit of loft from my i20 as it is a 10.5* and it is a little higher and more rainbow flight than what I want. So just looking to see if the 10.5* M1 440 is a lower launch than most other 10.5* or if I should pass on it and grab a 9.5*? I need to know by today which is why I don't go do a huge demo session. (he got his bonus today so if I don't buy hes trading in.)

Thanks to anyone who can help!

    Yes it does launch and spin low. Remember those ping heads have more actual loft than the stated 10.5. My I 25 10.5 had actually 12 degrees. At least with the m series you can loft it down, it will open the face up though. Go try one at a local place first and see what the launch is like for you. It is one of the lowest spin heads around.

    One thing to keep in mind is what hosel setting you use and what effective loft it creates. In my M1, I play it in the “higher” setting which creates an effective loft of +2*. As a result, I chose the 9.5* in order to keep the ball flight optimal. My angle of attack is also +3* or higher.

    If you’re someone who plays an open or square club face, the 10.5* might work for you. Also, the Rogue Silver is advertised as a low launch shaft so it should keep the ball down some.
