Equipment: TaylorMade launch new M2 IronsJanuary 25, 2016 Golf Equipment
Designed to take golfers farther and higher with emphasis on distance, peak trajectory, sound and feel...
In accompaniment with the launch of the new M2 metalwoods today, TaylorMade have also today unveiled the new M2 and M2 Tour irons.
Designed for golfers who would benefit from an iron that prioritises both distance and trajectory, whilst also delivering great forgiveness and feel, the M2 iron is designed for complete performance.
In the design, there are many innovative features, including a new, proprietary fluted hosel, 360 degree undercut, Inverted Cone Technology, a new 3d badge and TaylorMade’s patented Speed Pocket Technology.
In all irons, a significant amount of mass is trapped inside the hosel. In order to position the centre of gravity low in the M2 iron, TaylorMade engineers have utilised a new fluted hosel design to remove mass from the hosel and redistribute the weight lower and further back in the clubhead.
The M2 iron also features an advanced top line construction; a 360 degree undercut that functions to increase the unsupported face area whilst saving weight to lower the CG, creating a canvas that lends itself to a unique combination of high ball speed, optimised launch angle and spin rate resulting in exceptional distance.
While the fluted hosel and 360 degree undercut are designed for distance, the speed and higher ball flight are achieved through the introduction of a newly designed speed Pocket and a thin face with Inverted Cone Technology.
First found in the RocketBladez irons in 2012, the Speed Pocket is one of TaylorMade’s most revolutionary technologies, and is engineered to increase launch angle and ball speed.
Together, the product innovations work to push the limits of distance performance in an iron to successfully deliver tremendous distance and high peak trajectory.
In addition to M2, TaylorMade have also announced the new M2 Tour iron, a distance iron that has been designed with a more compact shaped, geared for players looking for distance with added workability.
Featuring many of the same technologies as the M2 iron, M2 Tour toes the line between a distance iron and a players iron.
