***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

M5 Tour driver...any reviews? Comps to Flash SZ?

I haven’t found much commentary on the the M5 tour driver, the smaller 435cc version. Is anyone on tour gaming this? How’s it compare to the regular M5 or some of the other recent TM offerings for launch/spin? Any side by side vs Cally Flash SZ?<br />
<br />
Thanks

    Still no one has hit it? The site had the 10.5 showing as available the other day and now it looks to be backordered again

    I have hit it and it is my favorite of the TM and callaway drivers. Not good enough to game because it didnt beat out my TS3 but I love the look of the small head and got really good spin numbers with it.

    It’s a great looking club but I find the regular M5 to be already low spinning so I doubt I could keep it afloat. But I’m sure it’s going to be deadly in the hands of those who need the added reduction in spin numbers.

    Ive had mine since Tuesday. Around 200 less spin on average than the 460 using the same shaft. Hardly any difference from my M3 440.<br />

    I haven€™t hit it against anything else because I hate titleist drivers, the flash sounds horrible to me, and the cobra is ugly to me.

    The difference in launch and spin off the 460 doesn't make it worth doing in my opinion. Unless you really like the smaller head and just hit it better because of that, the 460 is so low spin that the offset in off center ball speed is a real compromise.

    I have it. The difference from the 460cc to the Tour was massive for me. The 460cc had a tendency to want to spin on me and sat around 2800-2900, the tour dropped that down to 2400-2500

    Btw if I look carefully at this pic the carbon fix looks to be proper at least along the side with the weight as I see metal between the slot and the carbon. Not sure about the hammerhead slot though.
