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

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
