The Verdict: The more forgiving of TaylorMade's hybrids, the M2 features a confidence-inspiring low-face profile and a longer, more flexible slot cut through the sole (compared with last year's model) to help improve the way the ball rebounds off the face. While cutting a slot through the sole increases distance, making the flexing of that structure sound and feel ideal is nearly as important. So engineers fine-tuned the fluted hosel to save weight and control vibration.
