Taylormade M1 M2 Driver Issue

@Turleyrl, any update on your driver? I just got fitted for the M1 and while the numbers looked good during the fitting, outside my ball flight is lower than I want. I've kept moving the back weight further and further back. It's helped some, but I'm not near as high as my old driver. I've now got the weight all the way back so there's nothing more for me to adjust. I can't compare to your swing, which sounds great if you're carrying it 280. I'd just like to hear how your launch is now. Thanks.

Have you tried to loft up, return the weight to middle and start from there, see if you can get the ball flight to the height you are looking for?

The one thing I didn't see anywhere was the driver loft....you would be amazed what 1 extra degree of loft will do to your launch angle at that swing speed.

It really a simple fix though. He wants more launch and spin, and both of those are obtained by simply increasing loft

Yes, changing the loft was what I ended up doing and it indeed solved all my problems. I couldn't believe making the slightest change (1 click) made such a big difference. I'm sold on adjustable drivers.

Glad to hear that.  :lol: yeah today's adjustable drivers have literally  hundreds of possible combinations of different settings. One of them is bound to be the right one.. finding it however is no easy task.  ^_^

I have an M1 9.5 and when I was fitted with a 100-105 ss my numbers were about 15-16 launch with spin around 2600-2800 and was carrying about 250-260. Having no problem with that carry I went with the 440 head to get a little less spin. Also am thinking of going with a lower spinning shaft.
