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? b2_tongue.gif

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.a2_wink.gif

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! a1_smile.gif

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.

I have a white RBZ, but I would prefer black, and not matted but shiny black.

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. ;)

Hello Photoshop - the top photo is just a BLACK & WHITE pic.

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
