How TaylorMade’s M2 is Not a Replacement For Their M1

How TaylorMade’s M2 is Not a Replacement For Their M1

Over the last five years TaylorMade has become known to some as the brand who bring out far too many clubs within a short space of time.

This has made some golfers question the brand’s club quality and if the new releases are in fact an improvement from the previous model.

But is that true?

Let’s look at recent events:

M1 was released early October while the M2 will hit the shelves mid-February.

Firstly both the M1 and M2 are different drivers aimed at different styles of golfers – one is NOT a replacement for the other. Most brands release their entire range at the same time rather than spread throughout the season.

Looking down they seem almost identical, only that the M2 is slightly bigger and the head pulled further back. This is to allow the weight at the back of the head to keep the club more stable on off-centre hits (aimed at the golfer who struggles to control their driver).

M1 has so much more adjustability aimed more towards the player who is able to control the club, but may need to adjust their ball flight to find their optimum level.

I can’t disagree that new golf clubs nowadays are released too often. Perhaps we should start buying the new headcover, but keep the old driver underneath!

Look out for our review coming soon.
