Taylormade M5 & M6 Woods - Pics added page 46


Recommended Posts

They could sell a lot more if they would just go back to black instead of their recent color palettes.

 

And you know this because...???

 

I'm sure TaylorMade has plenty of market research indicating the brand awareness benefits of having an immediately recognizable color scheme on their metal wood line.

Agreed. I don't buy that one bit. They made a killing on the white crown. Current version isn't all that jarring. They know exactly what they're doing.

Can't wait to find out the color scheme. More black/grey? Back to black/white? Anyone know?

 

Silver/matte black on the crown I heard.

 

Silver/Matte black on the crown. Almost the same color as the carbon fiber portion of a Toulon Indianapolis putter

 

Black and Orange are the key colors on bottom, a little bit of silver as well. But Orange is the new "Electric Green" or whatever the hell they called the Volt-like color of 2017 M1/M2.

 

From what I've been told the 2019 staff bag is going to be beautiful, along with a TP5 upgrade coming.

 

No other insights to my knowledge on irons/wedges/putters so who knows what will come out.

 

They have new MG wedges coming out too. The design is very interesting to say the least...

 

 

Are these the Hi-Toe wedges or a completely different MG wedge?

Any idea what the new balls will be? Six layers?!?! I could see the new ads, heck, they practically write themselves... "nothing's better than six" / "six in the morning, six in the afternoon, six after dinner" / "make sure you have your six when you play nine" / "who needs a fairway when you can have six in the rough" / "bunkers are no match for six on the beach" / "six in any hole means less strokes"

 

Also, at least with the 2016 M2 the neon green only pissed off Nike haters. And the M3/M4 only pissed off BMW haters. But orange & black M5/M6??? Now you're going to piss off Dodgers fans, bad move TM.

There are two different TP5/TP5x balls on the conforming list in addition to the one at retail. Not sure if they are new or tour only or what

Is the photo in this thread real? I looks so photoshopped I feel stupid asking.

Dude of course it’s real. Check how futuristic it is.

 

I hope the guy is right about the crown being matte. The same color scheme but changed to a matte finish would be sweeet.

The rep told me that the one he showed me was an ‘early production’ and that colours may change.

Could appeal to the military by along the lines of "We've got your six" or something like that. Get that camaderie spirit in the adverts

My friend hit the prototype in Feb and said they were easily better than m3/m4

Easily better in what aspect?

The Tp5/X is a realy great golf ball, would be interesting to see how they can improve it.

On second thought… You very well may be right. Hotmelt is old technology… We will fill that cavity with Speed Foam!

The next incremental improvement for Taylormade and Callway is to up the stock head weight and switch to stock counterbalanced shafts for more ballspeed which is what PING is already doing. Sneaky way to gain speed without really doing anything game-changing, but they will market it as jailbreak/hammerhead breakthrough technology.

I wonder if we will see that for 2019 offerings?
