Driver Recommendations after m1 430 cracked

Recommended Posts

My m1 430 cracked during travel last week and Im looking into newer options. I played it at 9.5 degrees with a fujicura speeder 7.2 ts x flex. I averaged around 2600 rpm spin and about 280 total yards (ss 110-115 when I really ant it up there). I know my angle of attack is around 0 to 1 degree up on trackman. Any body have a suggestion on driver heads and shafts to try now that I am in the market for a new driver? I wouldn't be opposed to lowering the spin either. Any make/model suggestions are welcome.

 

Also, if it helps, my three wood is an m2 tour with atmos blue TS x-flex at 15 degrees and off the tee goes about 265 so getting a driver with a bit more distance may be a good idea.

 

Thanks

The face cracked or the shaft? If you like the M1 430, why not make the logical move to the M3 440?

> the crown of the club cracked, there is a noticeable sound difference and it doesn't fly as far now. Its like a windshield crack from a rock on the road but on the white part of the club.

 

Im going to check out the m3 440 when I can get my hands on one but want to see what else is out there. Ill check out the epic flash too.

I would send it into Taylormade for a replacement. I cracked my M1 430 last season and they sent me the M3 440 as a replacement. I love it.

It cracked when I took it on a trip in the care of the airlines. Since it didn't break through normal use, Tailor-made won't replace it...and neither will the airline for that matter either.

I cracked the face of 4 taylormade drivers: R5 Dual, R7 quad, r9 tp, and a r9 super deep. Then I tried Callaway and broke 2 of them, they just fell apart, razr hawk tour and an ft tour. That's when I switched to Adams fast 12 ls and played that single driver for 4 years. Now all I play is srixon, my second year with the driver and it hasn't broken yet. I hope it lasts.

I understand. I had 5 callaway drivers crack in roughly 18 months before going to taylormade: 2 ft tours and 3 razr hawk tours. How do you feel the srixon stacks up against other drivers?

So far after 40 rounds or so it seems to be holding up great. But it better last 4 years. What I avoid these days is pounding driver at range that uses rocks.

I just ordered an M3 440 of eBay today. I think I got a pretty good deal with a hzrdus yellow shaft. I tried the callaway epic flash sub zero with 6 different shafts and it seemed to miss left.
