The Taylormade M4/M4 D-Type Drivers retail for $429.99 (MSRP) and they’re pretty similar in terms of look and feel. However, there’s a subtle difference between the two: the Taylormade M4 D-Type Driver is more draw biased and offers higher launching compared to the standard M4. To put it simply, the D-Type can be described as your anti slice solution, as it’s more heel weighted and has slight offset. Now, regardless of what version you choose, the Taylormade M4 Driver makes for a great option if you’re looking for forgiveness and straight distance without drama, regardless of your skill level. The key technologies incorporated by the company into these babies are the Twist Face, which promotes straighter shots when it comes to high toe/low heel hits, the Hammerhead slot in the sole, which promotes increased ball speed across a wider area of the face, the Geocustic technology, for enhanced sound and feel, and finally 86% more weight placed in the rear of the clubhead, which promotes forgiveness and a higher moment of inertia. On the turf, the Taylormade M4 Driver makes for an obvious upgrade compared to the already great M2 driver.

The highly innovative latest-gen Twist Face technology delivers impressive forgiveness, and together with the much heavier back-weight, the moment of inertia is significantly increased, along with overall stability. The Hammerhead Slot technology in M4’s sole is now designed with 3 sections for extending the size of the sweet spot, thus improving ball speed/distance like never before, mishits included. The technological advancements in the Taylormade M4 Drivers vastly improve feel and sound at ball impact, making this baby not only long, forgiving and straight, but also pleasing to play with. Bottom line, if you’re looking for a simple driver which provides exceptional sound, feel, distance and forgiveness, together with enough adjustability options, the Taylormade M4 Driver is an all-round performance maximizer if it ever was one.
