New TM Mini coming?


Recommended Posts

Color me interested!

 

I have been using a TEE strong 3-wood with 13* as my 2nd longest club, I feel pretty confident with it off the tee but would love it to be a bit bigger.  I could see myself using a new mini driver and replacing the TEE with a new 5-wood.  Both my driver and 3-wood are about 10 years old and I'd like to try the newest offerings.

Is it CB4 Tour? I’m still using mine but I’m definitely looking to replace it like you’ve said.

I know back in the day some guys used the old minis on tour. Padraig Harrington won with an SLDR S Mini and JB Holmes won with an Aeroburner TP mini. Both had them in as 2 woods.

 

Has anyone other than Phil Mickelson used the Original One on tour?

XCG 13* with a real Whiteboard shaft PURE'd.. bought from someone here on the BST ages ago.  I have a hard time replacing it because it's a really great club!

It’s the Original One, 3rd generation of the Mini’s. 1st Generation was the SLDR S Mini, 2nd was the Aeroburner Mini, the 300 will be the 4th Generation.

Cool. Supposedly the new one is smaller than the OG. I held it in my hands and it looks good. I had the OG as well but without them side by side I could not tell..

 

Checked one out in person as well. TM rep said head is a bit smaller, and should be a better player's club than the OO.

 

Silver face and black crown all look pretty decent IMO. Almost like the custom SIM2 Ian from TXG is playing visually.

 

Sole is super old school looking (not in a bad way). Rep told me there's a new rail addition as well similar to baffler rails.

If true, with rails and the V-Sole, they may have cracked the code in making it great off the turf. If so, it will be a big hit.

As someone who isn't a better player, loved the SLDR mini and just when back to it, and tried every edition, how do you get more "better player esque" in a mini driver? The SLDR S Mini was just an easy to hit in all situations oversized 3 wood. Its not any longer than a standard 3 wood (in 14 degree - I did squeeze some extra distance when I had the 12 in as a driver replacement vs the 14 as a 3 wood replacement because it was too spinny. For whatever reason I never got along with the Aeroburner (I tried the TP) but I didn't see it as being that different. The Original One was significantly lower launching and spinning. It made it much longer but much harder for the average Joe to hit, especially off the deck. It transitioned from being more a giant 2 wood to a true mini driver.

Just passing along what I was told! Didn't look like anything protruding to me, but he said they're there. Do with that info what you will.

According to the rep they messed around with CG a bit from OO to 300 and I'm assuming shape as well. Not a huge fan of the mini driver idea in general, so no real experience playing the OO.

I saw the head at a PGA section event, great looking club, 300 ccs total, CG has been relocated further back than the OO, looks very similar to the old TM 300 series driver, it's gonna sell well for what it is, a limited edition club. 

 

Apparently VERY limited, even by the current standard of supply chain limitations.

I have a hunch this may be the real deal. 
 

My brother, who is a skeptic of new ideas within the equipment industry.  Saw this thing, and said “It doesn’t look bad and I will hit it”.  
 

This means it actually looks good and is now intrigued. 
 

I think, after he described it, to use the v-steel sole (but with a bit more camber like the Rayler hybrid series had). He mentioned KBS shaft series, which is the norm for TM.... he saw an option at 43”.  Which is interesting. 
 

He said it looked hot.  He’s a millennial (which I guess I am to), so that means it looked clean and neat.
