Taylormade M5 Driver For Sale
With its creation of Twist Face technology in the M3 and M4 models, TaylorMade shook the golf industry, which improved both distance and forgiveness by changes to the clubface to combat both the high-toe miss and the low-heel miss. TaylorMade made more changes to Twist Face with the M5 and M6 series to produce Speed Injection Twist Face to increase ball speed. The M5 driver is also the M5 and M6 series’ most customizable driver, providing 1,770 separate CG positions.
The advantages of the latest TaylorMade M5 driver can be appreciated by golfers of all ability levels and swing speeds. The M5 Tour driver may want to check out players finding a lower-spinning alternative with a smaller address profile and improved workability. Meanwhile, the M6 driver may appreciate golfers seeking more focus on forgiveness, while the M6 D-Type driver may favor golfers looking for draw bias.
The Tech Story The Speed Injection Twist Face, which features an innovative new method of calibrating each human head to the threshold of the permissible speed limit permitted by the USGA and R&A, is the most remarkable technology in the TaylorMade M5 car. Until going through a calibration phase in which they are tuned for compliance and resin is injected for optimum speed, each M5 driver was built with a smaller, more compact face that actually produces a higher COR than the USGA and R&A limits. Two modern tuning ports on the bottom corners of the face and a patented algorithm are used for the injection phase to guarantee that the right volume of resin is used to deliver the best maximum ball speed.
The updated face configuration also arrives with a 20 percent decrease in thickness, resulting in the M5 drivers getting a 66 percent greater sweet spot than the M3 versions. TaylorMade’s Inverted T-Track, which substitutes the Y-Track used in the M3 models, is the product of excellent adjustability features. The allocation of 20 grams of movable weight (two 10-gram weights) facilitates 1,770 special heel-to – toe power and front-to-back CG change configurations.
All in all, the Inverted T-Track enables the golfer to configure up to one degree of angle of launch, spin shift of 600 revolutions per minute and 25 yards of adjustability from left to right. In addition , the two-degree loft sleeve helps the driver to change the loft, lying position, and face position. In terms of style, thanks to a vivid blood orange paint and two-tone carbon sole, the fresh look of the M5 and M6 has drawn good feedback from TaylorMade ‘s Tour personnel.
The total hybrid crown footprint for a powerful glance at the address has been expanded by 10 percent. Naturally, the wider size and the 460cc clubhead design encourage greater MOI and more forgiveness than the M5 Tour ‘s smaller 435cc clubhead, which shows more workability and lower spin.

TaylorMade M5 Review
The T-Track sliding weight framework of the M5 provides 20 g of mass to customize spin, launch and shot form. And that’s a ton of weight to bring in a driver head low and forward (600rpm and potentially a degree of launch change) if you just want to chase low spin and distance at all costs. Just note that this decreases redemption.
M5 is still something more than just a low spin alternative. Rory, Rahm and Tiger all left M5 for their own packs, which strengthens our conviction that this is a perfect choice. For serious players, large quantities of tuning choices carry M5 to a new degree.
TaylorMade releases M5 and M6 drivers, fairway woods and rescue clubs
Like the previous M3 and M4 drivers, the famous Twist Face will also have the latest M5 and M6 drivers. (Andrew Tursky / PGA TOUR)TaylorMade ‘s latest M5 and M6 drivers are first developed “hot,” implying they are quicker than the legal limit; then, before they go on the shelves, each driver is dialed down down within the legal range to get closer to the limit than ever before. We’re going to get to how it happens below, but first, a refresh on the USGA and R&A laws in effect, and the obstacles that are in effect.
A new CT (Characteristic of Time, a measure of the flexibility of the face) has since been implemented. According to Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director of Product Development at TaylorMade, the CT cap is 239, with a tolerance of up to 257. Drivers are checked off-center as well. So now, if they weigh more than 257 CT points in every region on the face, drivers are deemed non-conforming. This being the case, driver manufactures face a challenge.
They can either play it safe and target for a range just outside the cap, or because of production tolerances, they can attempt to get up to the legal cap and risk heading beyond. Why are those finely made heads tolerated? According to Bystedt, “There is no completely automatic golf club production method where something just happens all the way through, there is still hand contact.” Because of these production tolerances, on a bell curve there are CT values of drivers from every organization.
Go to the nearest big box shop , for example, and take off the shelves 10 drivers of every model. Perhaps two drivers will have a CT of 230, two drivers will have a CT of 250, and the remainder will be right in the centre. These are not actual figures, they are merely for interpretation. So, Taylormade plays the game a little differently with its new M5 and M6 drivers. Instead of striving for a range below the legal limit, TaylorMade produces the drivers beyond the legal limit in order not to enable output tolerances to carry any driver beyond 257.
Then, resin is injected onto the face using a modern injection technique and housed within internal foam support chambers to essentially minimize flexibility down to below 257. And even though the current drivers are made beyond the maximum, there are always tolerances, a different volume of resin is inserted into each vehicle, varying from no resin to 2 grams of material value.
According to Bystedt, this decreases the bell curve by “at least twice as much as before.” It would imply, hypothetically, if the range of M3 drivers is, say, 16 CT points, the range for M5 driving. Because Bystedt was not legally permitted to give me the exact range for the M5 and M6 drivers, the above numbers are again used solely to demonstrate the definition. Before going into the other latest M5 and M6 driver prototypes, let ‘s address a few queries.
How does TaylorMade manufacture the drivers above the legal limit? Thinner faces? What else?
We’ve got what we call pushing levers to bring the pace faster. You’re asking about the thickness of your face (in your question), which is a huge one. The latest faces are about 20 percent smaller than the M3 and M4 faces. It’s the first item it you head to, then. The problem with the thickness of the face, though, is that you can become more dangerous in terms of toughness. So, clearly, the thinner you go, the less robust it would be for your skin.
And these clubs have to stand up to men who are reaching the head velocities of the 125 mph club over and over and over again. So longevity is becoming a problem. We may also change how lightweight our pockets are for speed. So, on M3 / M4, because we didn’t want to make them too versatile, we purposely had those small, like, ribs around the hammerhead slots. And if you make the slot too flexible, you’re going to probably go past the COR cap because you have to thicken the forehead, which is terrible because you have to place mass and all sort of stuff where you don’t like it.
So one of last year’s breakthroughs with the M3 / M4 was the hammerhead slot that wasn’t as versatile, which actually helped us to go thinner last year. Now, we’re 20% smaller again than last year. So you can do all these stuff to make your face faster, and so, I wouldn’t actually claim it’s impossible to make a club faster. The entire shell is so small around the face that it is certainly one of our greatest technical problems to build these clubs as challenging as they are to hold up to these incredible swing speeds that we see today, even beyond COR limits so that we can turn it back to be legal.
It is challenging to make it beyond the COR limit and keep it sturdy, particularly for all the carbon panels that you have there.
