TaylorMade M1 (2017)
The black-and-white look is familiar, but this next generation M1 uses a new sole design. The track with a movable 25-gram weight is longer (to correct a larger range of draws and fades) and has been moved farther back. This opened up space for a sole slot to help the face flex, increasing ball speed, boosting launch and decreasing backspin.

Off the tee, this is an animal. Even shots low on the face performed.
The head size is perfect: It's compact but not too small. Keeps you honest, but the forgiveness is good.
The notch in the white is a nice frame for alignment. Definitely a more centered mass behind the ball.
