The Verdict: Designing clubs for better players is a strength of TaylorMade. So in designing the M1 iron, the company sought to combine the speed and forgiveness of its M2 model with a more compact look that offers a hint of workability. The moderate offset and straighter leading edge provide an attractive look, and tungsten in the toe of the 3- through 7-irons gave designers more freedom to create the desired head shape without sacrificing ease of launch or forgiveness. Speed off the face isn't an issue, either, because a pocket in the sole and slots in the face are technologies that have been carried over from previous TaylorMade irons.
Loft: 6-iron: 26.5 degrees; PW: 45

Player Comments
  • low-Handicapper
    These lead the league in hang time. The ball just stays in the air.
  • mid-Handicapper
    The sole slot must work. Good distance on shots hit two grooves low on the face.
  • mid-Handicapper
    Rockets. Ball really jumps off the face with a nice high launch and good distance. Pretty forgiving across the face.
  • high-Handicapper
    Didn't feel like I could make a mistake. Can't get any better. In comparison to clubs hit so far, it's blown me away. Packs a lot of punch.
