The TaylorMade M3 Rescue Hybrid retails for $249.99 (MSRP) and it’s built and designed to appeal to golf players of all ability, boasting a brand new look, together with the company’s Tour proven shape and state of the art technologies. The M3 Rescue Hybrid replaces the old M1, and it makes for a significant improvement in terms of performance, especially when it comes to adjustability, via more movable weight. Thanks to its adjustable hosel and the updated (movable) weight system, the Taylormade M3 Rescue Hybrid makes golfers’ lives much easier in terms of hitting shots off the tee and from the fairway alike. Hybrids and rescue clubs are aimed at providing improved ball flights for the desired distance on difficult shots, thus replacing long irons in the process. The Taylormade M3 Rescue Hybrid achieves this goal due to its sliding weight feature, but also thanks to the company’s cutting edge technologies incorporated into its built. Enter the Speed Pocket, which is basically a cut through channel between the leading edge and the sliding weight, coated by a polymer so grass and debris do not enter inside the head.

This tech innovation allows the clubface to flex in a more efficient manner, thus improving ball speed upon impact. The steel-made head now boasts a classy looking silver finish, which also helps with the alignment at address as it contrasts with the black crown and face. The weight track is now 3 grams heavier than in the M1, standing at 30 grams, and it can be moved along the track to create a draw or fade bias, depending on one’s preference. Putting the weight in the toe would make for an anti left hybrid, which is often preferred by better players. To make a long story short, the Taylormade M3 Rescue Hybrid is much easier to hit than the previous M1, being also more playable and also looking smaller and a lot slicker front to back, compared to its M4 Rescue sibling, making it the ideal choice for golfers who prefer iron-style Rescue Hybrids. The main difference between the Taylormade M3 Rescue Hybrid and the M4 is that the former makes for a precision-shot club, while the latter is a distance-get out of jail club, so keep that in mind when you’re shopping for golf gear. The Taylormade M3 Rescue Hybrid also sounds more like an iron and it helps a lot with getting the ball airborne.
