After an impressive run of more than two years, TaylorMade is retiring, at least temporarily, the M1 name and introducing its replacement as M3. And when it comes to the new M3 drivers, the buzz centers around TaylorMade’s new Twist Face Technology, which has seen the company make modifications to the high-toe and low-heel regions of the clubface to improve performance on those common misses. That said, TaylorMade also believes the M3 is faster than the M1, as well as more forgiving, and the new model will continue to have industry-leading customization.
There will also be two M3 models for players to choose from, a 460cc option and a 440cc option. Most players will fit better into the 460, as it will provide more forgiveness than its stablemate, but for players who like a more compact profile and the ability to shape shots more easily, the 440 could be a great fit. It’s also the early choice of Tiger Woods, who looked solid in his 2018 PGA Tour debut.
When the M2 driver was first introduced in 2016, many viewed it as little more than a complementary product to the M1. Instead, M2 went on to become one of the best selling drivers of all-time. With its new M4 drivers, TaylorMade believes it will deliver players the high-launch, low-spin product that they’ve loved but with a massive infusion of added forgiveness thanks to new Twist Face Technology, which has been developed to provide better results on a driver’s two most common misses, low heel and high toe.
Players will also have two models of the M4 to choose from, the standard M4 and the M4 D-Type. Of the two, the standard model will fit the widest array of players and be a popular choice with tour pros and high-handicappers alike. But for those golfers who struggle with a block or a slice thanks to an open clubface at impact, the D-Type will help combat that issue.
While the buzz around TaylorMade’s M3 and M4 drivers is Twist Face, the new M3 and M4 irons have their own exciting new technology story to tell in the form of RIBCOR, which has not only been utilized to improve feel in these two models over the M1 and M2 irons but is also helping create straighter, longer golf shots from all impact points thanks to the perimeter of the clubhead having been stiffened. Additionally, popular TaylorMade technology like Face Slots and Speed Pockets have also been utilized to further create more distance, high launch, and forgiveness.
From a fitting standpoint, the M4 will work best for mid- and high-handicappers, while the M3 will be a better option for low-to-mid handicappers. More specifically, the M3 features a compact shape that will help players work the ball more easily, as well as a thinner topline and less offset. Both, however, have a more streamlined look than their predecessors, the M1 and M2.
Also new for 2018 from TaylorMade will be M3 fairway woods, and like their predecessors, the M1 models, the M3 fairways will give players significant customization options to achieve exactly what they want to see in terms of trajectory, shot shape, and distance. There’s new technology in the M3 fairways as well, however, including more moveable weight to further fine tune flight conditions. Additionally, the M3’s weight track and center of gravity position have been moved closer to the clubface to reduce spin rates and optimize total distance.
So who’s the right candidate for an M3 fairway wood? Certainly the player who wants to be able to make setting adjustments to their fairway wood to optimize performance. But the M3 also has a significantly smaller profile than the M4 fairway woods and a slightly deeper face as well, which will make it a great option in terms of working the ball and playing shots from a tee.
As popular as M2 drivers have been, M2 fairway woods have been almost their equal, as they have proven to deliver an incredible combination of distance and forgiveness. And that will again be the case with the new M4 fairways, which feature a modified Speed Pocket that’s creating more ball speed and protecting that ball speed better on mis-hits. Additionally, more weight has been pushed to the perimeter of the clubhead in the new design to help improve distance consistency on shots that are struck from either the heel or toe.
M4 fairways will be a great option for golfers who are looking for max forgiveness and effortless launch, the latter of which can pose challenges when it comes to recreational players, especially from the turf. For those who would like a smaller profile and enhanced workability, the M4 Tour fairway would be a good option as well and a great choice for players who use a fairway wood often from a tee.
The first thing players will notice with the new M3 Rescue is that it features the M family’s iconic two-tone crown, which this year is black and silver as opposed to black and white. That’s a notable move, one that TaylorMade chose to adopt primarily for alignment purposes, given that neither version of the M1 Rescue had the two-tone crown. Additionally, players will have more movable weight at their disposal with the M3 to produce their preferred launch conditions, ball flight, and distance, and an adjustable loft sleeve will also aid in that process.
Players of all ability levels can enjoy better performance with an M3 Rescue than they could with a long iron, and these are hybrids that have immediately made their way into the bags of touring pros around the world. Given the ample customization that exists in the M3, players can also expect to add a higher level of precision to their hybrid game regardless of the shot at hand.
The M4 Rescue was designed to provide exactly what the average golfer wants in a hybrid, that being high launch, fast ball speeds, and ample forgiveness. Specific to the M4 Rescue is a new Speed Pocket that better protects ball speed from all impact location but most notably strikes low on the clubface, which can be distance killers. Additionally, a new internal weighting system has pushed more weight to the perimeter of the clubhead to ensure that players don’t suffer significant distance losses on shots hit from the heel or toe.
As the above description would suggest, most any golfer can put an M4 Rescue into play and enjoy more success than they could hope for with a traditional long iron. One of the additional reasons for that is a sole design that allows players to better escape poor lies. And for the right-handed player who fights a miss to the right, the M4 will also offer a natural draw bias.
With P-790, TaylorMade created a forged distance iron that meets the demands of better players and delivers consistent performance for the aspirational golfer. By combining the new SpeedFoam with a wrapped face construction, they have engineered an iron that is as beautiful as it is powerful.
The Tour demands perfection, P750 delivers. P750 Tour Proto irons are reserved for the best ball-strikers—players who prefer a more compact, forged clubhead for precise shotmaking and immediate feedback through impact. P750 raises the standard by providing superior performance and feel in a design that delivers optimum workability.
P770 irons utilize an advanced forging process to create a pure and simple head shape that appeals to the better player’s eye. Combined with precision-milled faces and grooves, P770 provides golfers with soft-solid feel at impact and performance that is both workable and forgiving.
In 2017, TaylorMade introduces the M1 irons — an entirely new line that packs the distance and forgiveness of M2 irons in a more compact shape for improved control. M1 irons have been crafted to bring as much of the speed, forgiveness, and playability of the M2 irons, but deliver it to the player who prefers a slightly more refined look along with additional control and workability.
Drawing inspiration for the world’s best golfers, Milled Grind (MG) wedges use advanced surface milling techniques to ensure precise sole geometry, leading edges, and score lines. The result is a precisely crafted grind on each and every wedge that produces optimal turf interaction and consistent performance.
