TaylorMade M4/M4 Tour Fairway Review
©TaylorMade Golf

The TaylorMade M4/M4 Tour fairway woods retail for $249.99/299.99 respectively (for the Tour version). The new M4 fairway wood which replaces the M2 makes for the company’s ultimate distance fairway, boasting a larger sweetspot compared to its predecessor, which results in higher inertia and more forgiveness, i.e. better overall performance. Both the M4 and the M4 Tour fairway woods feature a multi-material/composite built, the company’s proprietary Speed Pocket, a new split weight mass pad which keeps ball speed when it comes to off center shots and a new face material. Now, with the M4 , Taylormade took their ultimate distance fairway to the next level, by making it even more forgiving than ever before. These fairway woods are boasting the latest and greatest technologies in Taylormade’s portfolio: the Geocustic technology, the composite materials, the Speed Pocket and ICT integration, to deliver a state of the art and highly efficient complement to the Taylormade M4 driver.

The new M4 fairway wood was built with an emphasis on maximizing distance while offering unparalleled forgiveness levels, due to its bigger sweet spot and improved launch conditions. The M4 is better than its predecessor in terms of forgiveness and higher inertia, so keep that in mind when you go shopping for golf gear. Both the M4 and the M4 Tour fairways feature Taylormade’s brand new Ni-Co C300 face material, which is thinner and stronger than ever before, to improve both speed and durability. The ICT technology increases the higher-COR area of the clubface, which helps with minimizing ballspeed loss on mishits, thus delivering increased distance more often. The M4 Tour version has a smaller size clubhead than the standard M4 fairway wood, 156 cubic centimeters respectively vs M4’s 175 cc, and a deeper face, being aimed at better players who seek lower launch, a more compact look and more workability.
