WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-The M2 drivers of TaylorMade for 2020 offer players a wider face and profile, greater durability, and what the business considers a quicker look than its ancestor, the initial M2.
“The shape is not quite like M1 when you put it down, “said Brian Bazzel, senior director of product development for metalwoods at TaylorMade. “The M1 and M2 were exactly the same form last year. The middle portion of the sole has been partially pushed out. It has a faster appearance. The body of the 460cc is built of 9-1-1 titanium and a six-layer, carbon-composite crown tops it. Going with a carbon-composite crown helped achieve a discretionary weight of 25 grams.
To push the club’s center of gravity lower, the mass was shifted down and to the back of the sole. To get a moment of inertia above 5,000 g-cm2, you will usually have to do something very dramatic to the design, like the square drivers of the past, “Bazzel said. It also helped dramatically improve the moment of inertia.” “That was not all we wanted to do here. The face is 7 percent wider than with the initial M2 driver, and the total footprint of the club is also larger, which can help instill trust in address and improve forgiving more.
Another aspect that helps increase forgiveness, protect ball speed and decrease spin is an improved slot that TaylorMade calls the Speed Pocket behind the Speed Pocket behind the Speed Pocket We use the Speed Pocket to destroy the spin, “Bazzel said. We will use it to drop a large amount of spin to send you high start with low spin and great pace now. You can barely lose ball momentum when you strike the ball with this driver low in the chest. You lose less than 1 mph on a half-and-inch shot struck from the middle.
TaylorMade is launching the 460cc M2 D-Type to support golfers who fight a slice or who need more backspin to hold the ball in the air to optimize distance. Which hardly shows up on a launch display. It has been built with offset, is 1 degree more upright than the regular M2 and has additional heel weight to enable the face to rotate more comfortably on the downswing to square. The business claims it achieves an average right-to-left enhancement of 12 yards. The 2020 M2 (available at retail Jan. 27) comes standard with a Fujikura Pro XLR8 56 high-balance point shaft, and a Matrix Ozik MFS X5 shaft comes with the M2 D-Type.
