TaylorMade M1 and M2 2017 Range

 

M1 And M2 Drivers

M1 Driver

M1 Driver

Same Letter. Better Everything.

The all-new M1 driver takes multi-material construction to the next level to deliver distance, forgiveness and complete personalization. Featuring a new 6-layer carbon crown and additional carbon toe panel, the 2017 M1 driver has 43% more carbon than last year’s model. The additional focus on multi-material construction saves weight to enable lower CG for better launch conditions and allows for an expanded T-Track for improved adjustability. 

TaylorMade engineers relied on proven internal acoustic management techniques and modified them as necessary to meet the demands of new materials and shaping. The result: the re-definition of best-in-class sound by controlling vibration and pitch at impact. Combined with external performance technologies, TaylorMade has delivered maximum distance and forgiveness through multi-material construction and complete personalization for every swing. 

Additionally, the iconic two-tone crown of the M1 driver is precision-fit to the skeletal titanium body using an FF2FF process—a breakthrough engineering technique that results in craftsmanship of the highest quality with manufacturing repeatability for a consistent, aggressive appearance and undeniable performance.

SAME LETTER. BETTER EVERYTHING. 

The 2017 M2 driver brings golfers a new level of distance and forgiveness through all-new GeocousticTM technology. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the M2 driver successfully raises the bar in design and engineering through reinvented multi-material construction and advanced geometric shaping. Along with the new Geocoustic design, the M2 driver houses a new Speed Pocket that is three times more flexible than it was in the original M2. Combined, the new M2 takes the #1 selling driver to the next level of performance for all players. 

The new lower density 9-1-1 Titanium body, 6-layer carbon composite crown and minimal sound ribs allowed for 25g of discretionary mass to be relocated low and back in the sole of the club. Together, these applications combine to increase the overall inertia of the M2 driver without sacrificing low CG, hot trajectory, or aerodynamic performance.

Complete Personalisation 

New T-Track System

A redesigned T-Track system with more moveable weight and a longer back track allows for 64% more front-to-back CG movement than the original M1. Adjust the front track (15g) modify left-to-right trajectory and move the back track (12g) forward for lower ball flight and more distance, or adjust it farther back for higher ball flight and more forgiveness. 

New Ultra-Lightweight Loft Sleeve

4° aluminum Loft Sleeve features 12 easily adjustable settings to dial in your loft and face angle without going to a golf shop. 

Three Premium Stock Shafts and 30+ No-Upcharge Shaft Offerings

  • Fujikura Pro XLR8 56 (high launch)
  • Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver Dual-Core TiNi 60 (mid launch)
  • Project X HZRDUS Yellow 65 (low launch)

GEOCOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY 

The new Geocoustic feature combines geometry and acoustical engineering to unlock more forgiveness and best-in-class sound. The new breakthrough in geometry comes from the sunken sole portion of the driver. This section utilizes ultra-light, thick-thin 9-1-1 Titanium—a design that enabled engineers to free up volume without raising the centre of gravity. 

The breakthrough in acoustical engineering was achieved by the new sunken sole curvature, making it stiffer and easier to manage vibrations caused at impact. With this added stiffness, minimal externalized sound ribs were needed to create best-in-class sound and feel of the M2. 

Customized Performance

The M2 is equipped with a new 4° aluminium Loft Sleeve featuring 12 easily adjustable settings. M2 also comes stock with a Fujikura Pro XLR8 56 (high launch), available in A, R, S and X flexes along with a new dual-texture 360 performance grip for great feel throughout the swing.

FAST. FAR. FORGIVING. 

In the 2017 M2 fairway, the ultimate distance fairway has been made even more forgiving with the incorporation of a recessed 6-layer carbon composite crown, Inverted Cone Technology (for the first time in a TaylorMade fairway) and a new Geocoustic sole design. Additionally, a longer, more flexible Speed Pocket and lighter fluted hosel create a low CG that produces fast ball speeds for an incredibly long, high-launching, and low-spinning fairway. 

GEOCOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY 

Geocoustic engineering combines advanced sole shaping with externalized sound ribs to produce best-in-class sound and feel. Designed with a two-tiered sole, golfers will experience the same unreal distance of the original M2 with added playability from all lies. 

OTHER KEY TECHNOLOGIES: 

  • 6-layer carbon composite crown saves weight for lower CG
  • Speed Pocket for more distance and forgiveness on low-face strikes
  • Inverted Cone Technology for a large sweet spot and a faster face

DISTANCE + HEIGHT + CONTROL 

In 2017, TaylorMade introduces the M1 irons — an entirely new line that packs the distance and forgiveness of M2 irons in a more compact shape for improved control. M1 irons have been crafted to bring as much of the speed, forgiveness, and playability of the M2 irons, but deliver it to the player who prefers a slightly more refined look along with additional control and workability. 

M1 irons feature both Speed Pocket Technology and Face Slots, which are designed to increase flexibility at the boundaries of the clubface to improve consistency of ball speed on off-center impacts. This combination of technologies is designed to produce longer, higher shots with improved consistency and dispersion on all shots. 

With a smaller overall head size, reduced offset, thin toplines, and shorter blade lengths, M1 irons are more compact than traditional distance irons and provide a confidence-inducing look at address. The result is a visual appearance at address suited for the aspirational and better players while offering performance typically found in modern distance irons. 

GEOCOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY 

Similar to the new M2 irons, the M1 irons also implement TaylorMade’s Geocoustic engineering; acoustics tuned through geometry. TaylorMade’s fin badge is a feature that works in conjunction with Face Slots to dampen unwanted low frequency, long duration sounds. The sound of the M1 is optimized using thin-yet-stiff head geometry combined with strategically placed reinforcements in the topline. The resulting sound is then dampened using a very stiff fin badge connecting the back of the flexible face to the stiff back bar of the iron for optimal sound damping. 

SHAFTS AND CUSTOMIZATION

Players will have a choice of True Temper’s popular XP95 steel shafts or MRC Kuro Kage Silver graphite shafts in addition to numerous additional custom shaft options.

DISTANCE + HEIGHT + FORGIVENESS 

The 2017 M2 irons give golfers the complete performance package with low CG, Speed Pocket technology, Face Slots, and Geocoustic engineering—it’s our most technologically advanced distance iron. Each technology in M2 irons works together to help golfers achieve more distance, peak trajectory, and forgiveness—overall, a more consistently performing iron swing after swing. 

New to M2 irons, engineers incorporated Face Slots that help preserve ball speed on shots struck toward the heel or toe, giving golfers more distance and more control—making your mis-hits better and your best shots extraordinary. 

Additionally, the M2 irons incorporate a new thin-wall Speed Pocket, designed to increase face flexibility and protect ball speed on strikes below face-center while also increasing launch angle and ball speed. 

Further improvements include a new thinner, wider, six-sided Fluted Hosel that saves 5 grams (compared to 3 in the original M2 iron), allowing for the repositioning of 2 grams of discretionary weight lower in the clubhead. The new hosel bend slot also allows for a 30% improvement in bending. 

Similar to the M2 metalwoods, the new M2 irons were designed employing TaylorMade’s new Geocoustic™ engineering techniques; acoustics tuned through geometry to create ideal frequencies for pleasing sound & feel. 

SHAFTS AND CUSTOMIZATION

Players will have a choice of the REAX HL 88 by FST steel shafts (S, R) or the M2 REAX graphite shafts (75-45g / S, R, A, L) in addition to numerous additional custom shaft options.
