TaylorMade Golf, have released the next generation of M metalwoods, highlighted by the new M1 and M2 drivers, fairways and hybrids. Last year, M1’s engineers successfully endeavored to combine the perfect blend of form and function in the club’s aesthetics and club alignment, focusing on the utilisation of new materials.
By way of a new, lower density Titanium alloy called 9-1-1 and an added carbon toe panel that accounts for a total of 43% more Carbon composite than its predecessor, the new M1 460’s mass properties have been optimised to deliver optimal launch conditions, more personalisation and increased forgiveness. The iconic two-tone crown of the M1 driver incorporates a proprietary 6-layer Carbon composite panel that is precision-fit to the skeletal titanium body using an FF2FF process — a breakthrough engineering technique. Available on 27th January, 2017 priced at £479.
In designing the new M1 fairway, TaylorMade’s engineers strove to challenge convention that a fairway wood cannot be both adjustable and also incredibly long. Constructed with a 450 stainless steel body, strong Ni-Co C300 face and same 6-layer Carbon composite crown as the M1 driver, the completely re-designed and reshaped M1 fairway has a track system that has been shifted more rearward to make room for a new open channel Speed Pocket designed to deliver more ball speed & more forgiveness. Available on 27th January, 2017 priced at £279.
The new M1 Rescue features a moderate sized, Tour-proven shape and a newly designed sole that will appeal to a larger demographic of player, offering more playability from an increased variety of lies. The sole is engineered with TaylorMade’s first-ever sliding weight system in a hybrid – and the company’s most adjustable ever – providing golfers the opportunity to not only experience the neutral/fade biases of its predecessor but with the added option of draw setting – as well as anything in between.
In addition to the new 27g sliding weight track and advanced sole design, the head comes equipped with a new, 3-degree ultra-lightweight aluminum loft sleeve. Premium components again are offered as stock options, with a MRC Kuro Kage Silver hybrid 80g shaft in R, S & X flexes as well as a 70g A flex along with a new Lamkin UTx grip. TaylorMade’s most adjustable hybrid to date, the M1 Rescue will be offered in 17° (2), 19° (3), 21° (4) and 24° (5) options while LH models will be offered in 19° and 21° options priced at £239.
Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the M2 driver successfully raises the bar in design and engineering once again, with engineers successfully achieving both distance and forgiveness through the utilisation of a new multi-material construction and advanced shaping by way of a breakthrough design technique called ‘Geocoustic’. Along with the new Geocoustic design, the M2 driver houses a newly-designed Speed Pocket that is three times more flexible than its predecessor. Combined, the new M2 takes the #1 selling driver to the next level of performance for all players. Available on 27th January, 2017 priced at £369.
In the M2 Fairway, the ultimate distance fairway has been made even more forgiving by way of the incorporation of a recessed 6-layer carbon composite crown, inverted cone technology (for the first time in a TaylorMade fairway) and a new Geocoustic-driven sole design. Additionally, a longer, more flexible Speed Pocket and lighter fluted hosel create a low CG that produces fast ballspeeds for an incredibly long, high launching and low spinning fairway. Available on 27th January, 2017 priced at £229.
Completing the M2 UNmetalwood family in 2017 is the M2 Rescue. The low-profile body of the M2 Rescue has a tiered two-tone crown that showcases the distinctive and iconic look TaylorMade’s M series of product has become known for. Underneath the hood lies the engine of the club, which lies on the sole, where a longer, more flexible Speed Pocket offers speed and forgiveness. The new Geocoustic sole design and a short, fluted hosel work in tandem to optimise sound and feel at impact. This Rescue is designed to help average golfers replace a long iron with higher, longer and more draw biased performance. Available on 27th January, 2017 at £189.
