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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
