Good find Mike. I am a bit surprised to see that TM has bowed to the pressure to build black clubheads now. I think it is a good way for them to have a "new" release for summer.

Good point. Think they'll need someone to review this "new" model? :-P

I've read it's going to be a limited release, maybe only a few hundred heads.

I think it will appeal to the traditional, stuffy crowd.

Like that a LOT better than the current NASCAResque design. The logo still seems distracting to me, but I'm pretty minimalist in what I like in terms of club appearance..... .....traditional, but never stuffy! :-)

.....traditional, but never stuffy!

I'm more of a form follows function type of golfer ... and I guess color follows function. It's easier to line up a white crown against a black face than black against black...

Looks "Black Z - IER" to me !!!!!!

Wonder what hyped slogan TM has up their sleeve for this product ???????

Is it going to be " 25 yds Long G IER"

Just adding a little humor to the thread.

TM has always made great Drivers.

We were going to have Demo Day last Saturday, but it was a rain out.

Hopefully, our rep will have one available when it gets rescheduled.

Nope.

Market and Brand Expansion is good strategy ... as well as profits.

The monster needs to be fed...

I meant shareholders need feeding...

White driver heads, stupid sayings, ugly irons and a CEO talking trash on one of the greatest players of the game.... I just find TM cheap and gaudy now. Boring. I am over TM line. I don't use a single thing from them anymore. I will still use adidas but that is all.

I understand, however, I find it a little bit amusing that your biggest complaint (well, I don't really know if it's your biggest, but it was your first) is about the white driver heads ... in a thread about a black driver head. ;)

Not the biggest complaint but it was talked about in the thread. I don't care for the color however but not enough not to use one. Something had to be first :P
