TaylorMade Unveils M2 Golf Club Line

January 25, 2016

Like the popular M1 driver, the M2 ($400) features a lightweight carbon crown. Whereas the M1 transfers the weight savings to moveable weights in the sole, the M2 shifts mass low and away from the face, to maximize forgiveness. A redesigned channel on the sole boosts ball speed on shots hit low on the face while the face itself is thinnest towards the edges to maintain speeds on heel/toe hits.

The M2 can be customized as well: You can strengthen or weaken loft by up to two degrees and choose from 30 premium shafts at no upcharge, though the Fujikura Pro is the stock shaft. The M2 driver is available in 9.5°, 10.5°, and 12° loft options.

The M2 fairway wood ($250) also features a lightweight carbon crown that allows more weight to be distributed low in the head. The M1 has sliding weights on the sole for tuning shot shape but there are no weights in the M2. Instead, there’s a deep channel—the company calls it the most flexible Speed Pocket to date—that provides more ball speed on shots missed low on the face. M2 fairways are available in five lofts – 15°, 16.5°, 18°, 21°, and 24°. An M2 Rescue ($199) is also available in 19 °, 22 °, 25 °, and 28 °.

The M2 irons ($800 steel, $900 graphite) feature a deep undercut behind the entire face plus a fluted hosel free up mass that’s repositioned lower and further back in the head to boost forgiveness. The undercut also increases the unsupported area of the face, which combines with a variable-thickness face, Speed Pocket channel, and thin-walled sole to provide additional speed on miss-hits. A compact Tour model ($900; available March 15) for better players offers added workability.

The M2 family will be available on February 19th.
