The Verdict: The more forgiving of TaylorMade's fairway woods might be larger, but its real improvements are hidden. Last year's M2 used a single internal weight low and toward the rear that ran almost the entire length of the face. But in the new M4, it's larger and split. That creates higher stability on off-center hits. The channel on the sole is also longer than on the M2 to improve how much of the face flexes.

Player Comments
  • low-Handicapper
    It's a tad bigger, but the sound is pleasing. It's easy to hit, and the distance is good. The trajectory stays where you want it.
  • mid-Handicapper
    It goes as straight as you want, but you can still hit the draw. It gives a powerful "crack" like a major-league home run.
  • high-Handicapper
    It was easy to get in the air—even when I didn't hit it flush.
