The new TaylorMade M2 irons have had the covers ripped off, and as you’d expect from TaylorMade, there’s plenty of distance on offer.
The game improvement iron set has been designed to maximise your distance and trajectory, while also delivering great forgiveness, as is a theme across the new TaylorMade M2 range, which also includes the M2 driver and M2 irons.
This was made possible in the irons thanks to innovations including a new fluted hosel, 360° undercut, Inverted Cone Technology (ICT), a 3D badge and Speed Pocket technology.
The most distinctive of these is a fluted hosel, where weight is removed from the hosel and redistributed lower and further back in the clubhead.
A 360° undercut construction increases the unsupported face area to help it spring more powerfully, while simultaneously saving weight that further boosts the forgiveness.
This combination lends itself to faster ball speeds and optimised launch angles and spin rates for distance with a higher peak trajectory. This higher trajectory leads to steeper descents for quicker stopping approaches.
While the fluted hosel and 360° undercut boost distance, the higher ball flight is achieved thanks to the redesigned Speed Pocket and thin face with Inverted Cone Technology that increases the size of the sweetspot.
A new 3D badge also reduces vibrations at impact for a better sound and feel. Featuring multi-material V-shaped struts, this badge is designed to be extremely stiff without inhibiting ball speeds.
TaylorMade M2 Tour iron
In addition to the TaylorMade M2 irons, there will be a more compact M2 Tour model geared for players looking for distance with added workability.
Featuring many of the same technologies as the M2 iron, the M2 Tour has less offset, smaller toplines and narrower sole widths, all of which add shot-shaping capability to the distance on offer
