TaylorMade M1

Next Club
The Verdict: A worthy follow-up to last year's model, the new M2 was tweaked in the right places (note the addition of face slots). With every gram of weight precious, the revised hosel requires less material and has a slot to make bending it for fitting easier. The undercut in the topline saves weight, allowing for a lower center of gravity. Kudos to TaylorMade for researching how to improve sound in a thin-face iron. The cavity badge has been revamped with ribs and damping tape to optimize the acoustics and feel.

  • low-Handicapper
    The feel of these irons is tremendous. Center hits jump off the face.
  • mid-Handicapper
    Beautifully constructed, and the weighting is well balanced. They look good in the bag, too.
  • high-Handicapper
    The sole seems to float through the grass.
