Step Back Into The Driving Seat: M1 Vs. M2
After their huge success in 2016, Taylormade have returned with new and improved editions of the M1 and M2 drivers…..but just how much improvement has there been in that time? As the latest models arrived in store at the end of January, we pitted the new arrivals against their predecessors – read what our expert Lee Nother thought:
Improved Shape And Speed:
The new M1 460 has a higher MOI compared to the 2016 version and was far more forgiving on off-centre strikes. The M2 certainly looks different in shape compared to last year’s version. A longer, shallower head stands out when addressing the ball and may inspire confidence for golfers looking for more forgiveness when hitting with the driver. We preferred the M1’s shape, which was more comparable to the existing Taylormade drivers.
One of the biggest improvements on the drivers is their sound, thanks to the new Geocoustic sole. Our testing showed an improvement in ball speed and overall carry distance of 10-yards compared to typical results.
Taylormade have also added the M2 D Type driver to their range for 2017. Compared to the standard M2, this driver sits a little more upright, a degree closed at address, and has weight positioned towards the heal of the club promoting a draw…..if you’re a golfer who struggles with a slice, I would certainly recommend this driver for 2017.
Personalise Your Equipment:
This is a product that certainly needs fitting, as a slight change in either the loft sleeve or track system has an immediate effect on ball flight. With Taylormade offering a wide range of shafts, tuning it to each individual is a must.
