TaylorMade

M6/M6 D-Type

Our Review:

Instead of extra adjustability, some of us just want maximum forgiveness. In place of sliding weights, large panels of carbon composite fill the sole. They flank a weighted center section, allowing mass to be placed low and deep on the standard model. There’s also a D-Type with 46 grams in the heel area to beat back a slice. And the face? Like the M5, the twisted-face shape helps minimize mis-hits. TaylorMade also starts with an extra-fast (nonconforming) face. Then, the head is injected with resin to bring the speed back under the limit. This intense manufacturing process aims to push every TaylorMade face closer to the edge than the norm.

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper
This is the essence of stability: You can swing hard and not lose it.
Mid-Handicapper
The sound is muted, but man, does it have pop.
High-Handicapper
The silver bracket nicely frames the face. D-Type fought my slice, and it won.
