A special review of the TaylorMade 2017 M1 and M2 irons from TaylorMade Headquarters

By Jon Levy

In December, we reviewed the TaylorMade 2017 M1 and M2 line of drivers and fairway woods during a special trip to TaylorMade Headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif.

We talked with Senior Director of Product Creation, Brian Bazzel, to uncover just what makes the 2017 M line of metalwoods a marked improvement over their popular, industry-leading predecessors.

Along with this early peek we received at their 2017 M wood line, we also got an in-depth look at the TaylorMade 2017 M1 and M2 irons during an exclusive sit-down with Senior Director Global Irons, Tomo Bystedt.

“With the 2017 M2 irons, we broke from traditional iron design to redistribute as much weight as possible for incredibly low CG. Combined with extreme forgiveness provided by Face Slots, the new M2 is the complete package of distance, height and forgiveness.”
— Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director Global Irons

As Bystedt and I discuss, the M1 and¬†M2 irons both fall into the “game improvement” category, but cover a wide spectrum of players because of the more refined player’s look, feel and workability of the M1 model.

It’s this incredible versatility that¬†makes the 2017 M1 and¬†M2 irons so unique — choose the model which embodies your desire for either more workability or more forgiveness, and you’ll get towering height and distance either way. No matter if you’re a 5 handicap or 30.

So check out the video below with that in mind, as well as images and the features and benefits that make the TaylorMade 2017 M1 and¬†M2 irons frontrunners to consider if you’re looking¬†to¬†pull the trigger on a new set of sticks!

FEATURES & BENEFITS

TaylorMade 2017 M1 iron

As TaylorMade puts it: Distance and forgiveness with control

WORKABILITY AND COMPACT SHAPING IN AN

IRON DESIGNED FOR DISTANCE

Max-COR and low CG
Moving discretionary weight lower in the head via the new 180-degree fluted hosel and ultra-thin topline provides higher launch and incredible distance. Combined with a thin, max COR face and tungsten weighting, M1 gives golfers distance with consistency on each strike.

Face Slot technology
Engineered into M1 irons, Face Slots provide added forgiveness on shots struck toward the heel or toe. Complemented by Speed Pocket technology, which preserves distance on shots stuck low on the face, golfers experience ultimate forgiveness on mishits.

Compact shaping
M1 features a smaller overall head design compared to other distance irons. Reduced offset, thin topline, and shorter blade length provides a confidence-inducing look at address.

Improved workability
The leading edges of M1 irons have been meticulously designed for proper turf interaction. This enables golfers to work the ball and achieve their desired shot shape, while providing a forgiving performance through the turf.

Multi-Material with High-Density Tungsten
The M1 irons feature tungsten weighting in the 3-7 irons, which lowers the CG to increase launch and improve ball speed. This additional weight also helps reduce the sole width to promote workability.
