The Verdict: This might be the least-complex driver in TaylorMade's lineup, but it might give more golfers what they really need. Its priorities are forgiveness and ball speed. Carbon composite in the crown combines with a light, thin face to save weight. But rather than use those grams for movable screws, the M4 pushes that mass lower and farther back for a higher launch and stability on off-center hits. And because of a pair of struts, the slot in the sole is more than 20 percent longer, adding more zip across the face. Like the M3, the face's contrasting curves help mis-hits go straighter. The D-Type version could be your anti-slice solution.
Loft: Standard: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12; D-Type: 9.5, 10.5, 12. (Adjustable hosel +2/-2 degrees.)
Street Price: $430

Player Comments
  • low-Handicapper
    Great shape, a nice blend of being compact while having that triangular back. Good feel.
  • mid-Handicapper
    Forgiving, easy to draw. It sets up powerfully at address.
  • high-Handicapper
    The silver paired with the carbon-fiber crown is such a better look. It really helps alignment.
