TaylorMade Golf Releases New M2 Line Of Irons And Metal Woods, Including An M2 Driver
Earlier today, Taylormade golf announced the arrival of their M2 line of golf clubs. The M2 collection includes irons, hybrids, fairway metals and a new driver. But if you’re thinking that these are here to replace the M1 and PSi irons, you would be wrong. Although the name M2 would seem like the next generation of the M1, these clubs are meant to round out TaylorMade’s club offering, similar to how their Aero Burner clubs complimented the RSi and R-15 line.
According to TaylorMade’s press release, the M2 irons are “the embodiment of the company’s pursuit to equip golfers with both maximum distance and playability in a game improvement iron. Designed for golfers who would benefit from an iron that prioritizes both distance and trajectory, while also delivering great forgiveness and feel, the M2 iron is designed for complete performance.”
The M2 irons will be available at retail on February 19, M2 irons ($799 steel; $899 graphite) and the M2 Tour irons will be available at retail on March 15, the M2 Tour irons ($899 steel)
As for the M2 Driver, it still has the same head profile as the M1, but there are far less moving parts and according to TaylorMade there is also far more forgiveness.
Similar to M1, the M2 product line meets the challenge of delivering more performance to players of all skill levels with the utilization of multi-material construction (driver and fairway). From the outset, the key product deliverable for the M2 line has been to deliver maximum forgiveness without sacrificing distance. TaylorMade has achieved this by leveraging the weight savings from the carbon crown and redistributing the discretionary weight to the sole of the club, resulting in a low and slightly farther back center of gravity. This ultimately gives many golfers what they want: distance and forgiveness, without compromise. The result is a family of clubs that deliver hot trajectories with massive sweet spots and maximum forgiveness.
The M2 Driver, hybrid and fairway metals will be available on February 19.
