Let’s take a deeper look into the good and the bad of these clubs.

Pros

  • The light weight offers better swing
  • Even when your stroke is not great, these clubs can make up for the shortcoming and deliver good shots
  • The M2s are longer than the average clubs thus giving the extra distance which reduces the chances of a miss
  • A wide sole gives lets you cover more area in your shots
  • The hosel is designed in such a way that 3 grams of the weight is reduced
  • Graphite shafts make the whole club lighter
  • The design adds visual appeal
  • The material used in the making of these clubs are very durable
  • With a higher trajectory, your shots reach higher

Cons

  • The head is bigger and heavier
  • More weight at the sole makes it difficult for amateurs to hit many shots. Also makes it heavy to be carried around
  • Since the weight and the length of the clubs are different, it will take some time to get used to if you have been a regular player with another kit
  • The changed angle that aims to give a better shot may be too upright for some and cause them to misjudge their shots
  • Not much information is available about the difference between the graphite and steel shafts. Makes it difficult for one to choose what would suit them the best

The Review

Here is a detailed review of the TaylorMade Men’s M2 Irons

Size And Weight

The graphite option offers the user a lighter club as steel clubs are heavier. If you are a senior or have joint pains, these clubs could relieve you of some pain that is caused by using heavy clubs for hours together.

The increased length also enables one to hit the ball from a distance, thus making up for misjudged distance.

Design & Innovation

The ultra thin face and the inverted cone technology enables consistency when it comes to the speed of the ball. The ball maintains a uniform speed throughout the shot.

The changed hosel design has shifted the weight from the hosel to the sole, thereby reducing the center of gravity of the club. This enables better coverage when the ball is hit.​

The game improvement designing offers great forgiveness on shots missed and helps a player improve their game consistently. Everyone wants to improve and when your gear can help you do that, it could be a wise investment.

Performance

The 360o undercut angle reduces the CG and helps you cover more distance. Hence with the regular shots, one can cover more distance with these clubs without any added effort, as the clubs will do all the work

When you hit off center, the speed pocket feature enables you to improve your performance and it also preserves the ball speed. Hence with your regular shots, you can perform better and the clubs will do all the extra work for you.

Accuracy

These clubs are highly preferred for their accuracy. If you are a person who is still improving your game and want to improve your accuracy and reduce the misses, these irons may be the right ones for you.

Appeal

Golf is not like athletics. Here your gear matters, appearance is important in this gentleman’s sport. Keeping this in mind TaylorMade has done justice to the design of the clubs, making them look very stylish and sleek. For those of you who prefer good looks in addition to performance, these clubs could be what you are looking for.

Adaptability

Since the design and weight distribution is different when compared to the regular clubs in the market, it may take some time to getting used to. One may not be able to land their shots precisely the first time.

Suitability

It is suitable for amateurs and the older players, who don’t want to risk joint injury due to heavy clubs. The graphite version of these clubs are light and hence makes it easy on your wrists even when used for a long period of time.

How Does It Compare

Last update on 2018-12-13 at 12:23 PST - Details

The M2 are not the only Irons in the market, in fact TaylorMade itself has many models. Here is how the M2 fares against other Golf clubs in the market and why it may be the one for you.

1. Callaway Apex CF 16

Callaway Golf Men's Apex CF16 Golf Irons Set (Set of 7 Total Clubs: 4-PW, Right Hand, Steel, Stiff Flex)
  • Distance with playability: this is our first Face cup in a forged players iron. We've taken our industry-leading cup 360 technology that's redefined ball speed in fairway Woods and irons, and precision engineering in a forged apex design
  • Scoring performance through the set: the progressive Offset, sole widths, cg height and notch weighting provide the right balance of ball flight, playability, forgiveness and Control for each iron
  • Multi-piece construction: this high Tech construction goes through the whole set to create a remarkable combination of distance, feel and Control for any player
  • Extremely soft feel from advanced forging: we applied an extremely precise quadruple net forging, precision milling, and 1025 mild carbon steel to produce a new standard for incredibly soft feel in a forged iron

This set has everything a player would want – the style, design, appeal and light weight. It is designed in such a way that even if you make mistakes, the number of misses will be less. That is how forgiving these irons are.

However, they have a smaller sole size when compared to the M2, thus reducing the area covered when playing. This can result in more number of misses, especially if you are still perfecting your game.​​


2. Cobra King F6

2016 Cobra King F6 Driver Black (Men's, Right Hand, 9.0-12.0, Graphite, Stiff Flex)
  • F6 CG TUNING-F6 Drivers featuring adjustable 'Front to Back' CG technology. A front CG position delivers a penetrating ball flight with more roll, while a back CG position delivers a more towering ball flight with greater forgiveness
  • FORGED E9 FACE-A new, re-engineered Forged 8-1-1 Titanium E9 Face has a variable thickness structure that is lighter, thinner and hotter, creating more deflection for faster ball speeds and a larger Sweet Zone across the face
  • MY FLY-Eight easily adjustable loft settings to manage trajectory and fine tune launch conditions to maximize distance on any course, and for any swing
  • SPEED CHANNEL-Speed Channel is an exclusive COBRA innovation. An engineered trench around the perimeter of the face minimizes thickness and increases ball speeds across the face for incredible distance

These Irons are easy to use and are quite accurate. However, the number of misses would be more in this set and the ball does not travel the same distance as with the M2.

It is a mixed set with different designs, angles and length, thus making it hard for a beginner to use it. This is because only a well experienced player can alter their shots and angles according to the design of the club.

One needs enough experience to feel the difference. hence, if you are looking for a set to improve your game, while you don’t have much experience with different sized clubs, these may not be the right choice.​

3. Ben Hogan Fort Worth Iron Set

This set is priced more than two times the price of M2. It is designed for freestyle players but has very little room for errors. There is only a small cavity that accommodates errors, hence one needs to be precise in their shots.

The design is thin, right from top to bottom, like a blade and feels like the old fashioned irons. If you are looking for a premium quality set that is designed for the experienced players and has the same old designing appeal, these could be the ones for you.

However, if you want a more forgiving set with a wider coverage, these clubs are not a worthy investment. Also, if you miss a hit, you will feel the impact all the way up your arms, hence not suitable for those with joint pains.​


Conclusion

If you are looking for a well designed golf set made of graphite, to improve your game, the TaylorMade M2 could be the one for you.

Whether you are an experienced player who wants to improve their game or an amateur who is getting a grip of the game, lesser the number misses, the better the set. These clubs are very forgiving and could reduce your miss-hits.​
