    The new TaylorMade M2 line of clubs




    When it comes to golf club making, there are not many manufacturers that create a better looking and performing golf club than TaylorMade. The M2 follows on from the popular M1 series of clubs. The M2 driver has a carbon crown that is extremely lightweight. The M2 is a lot more forgiving than the M1 version of the club as the weight is now shifted away and low from the face itself, as opposed to being centred at the weights in the sole. The channel has also received an upgraded design which helps to increase the speed of the ball when shots are struck lower on the face of the driver, while at the edges of the club the face is thinner which helps to keep speed up to par when the ball is struck on the toe or the heel of the club.

    As with all TaylorMade drivers, you have many different custom options available to suit your specific needs. If you wish to do so, you can weaken or strengthen the loft of the club by up to two degrees, as well as having a choice of thirty different shafts, without having to pay extra. If you wish to go with the stock version of the club, it comes with a Fujikura Pro shaft. There are three different standard lofts that the M2 driver is available in, 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degree options.

    The new M2 fairway woods also have similar fixtures that the new driver has, such as the light weight carbon crown, allowing a greater distribution of weight at the base of the head. Unlike the previous M1 fairway woods, there are no adjustable weights on the M2 to tailor towards your specific shot shape. In compensation of this feature is a deep channel that will allow you to generate greater speed on your shots that have been missed across the face of the club. This is great if you regularly catch your fairway wood shots a bit thin. There are five different lofts available to choose from in the M2 fairway wood range, as well as having four different loft options in the M2 rescue club range.

    The new M2 iron range also features the new deeper undercut to the face, as well as having a hosel that has been fluted and positioned further back and lower in the head of the clubs, which provide an even greater level of forgiveness than ever before. This feature also increases the amount of the club face that is unsupported, which combines nicely with the face that ha a variable thickness and thin sole. This allows you to still generate strong speed levels even when you have mishit the ball. There is a tour version of these irons coming to market in the near future also, which will allows more experienced players the ability to work the ball a lot better than the standard model.
