TaylorMade M1

Our Review:

The second generation of golf’s most adjustable driver might look like the original—with its T-track of sliding weights that tweak shots vertically and horizontally. But look again. Always a force in our Innovation category, there’s now a lighter titanium alloy in the body, and half the sole and most of the crown is weight-saving carbon composite. All this means TaylorMade can position more mass low and deep so mis-hits lose less speed, and all shots launch with less spin. The center track now extends almost a half-inch longer and with a heavier weight. The result is nearly 5,800 settings on each head, 132 percent more than last year.
Specs: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12 (all adjustable +2/-2
Price: $500

Player Comments
  • low
    They make a big head look smaller. Mis-hits were good, and the launch monitor showed high launch with good spin.
  • mid
    A less-than-quality swing still gets a good result. It’s easy to launch the ball high.
  • mid
    My numbers were among the best with this club. The head has a lightness that made me feel I could really move it through. Plus, lots of levers to pull with adjustability.
  • high
    With the weight back, it's hard to miss. One of those shut-up-and-take-my-money clubs.
