What we say...



A 25g sliding sole weight lets you dial in a draw fade or neutral bias to allow you to hit the shot shape you desire. An open channel speed pocket and Ni-Co C300 face deliver more ball speed and forgiveness from larger areas of the face. A six-layer carbon crown saves weight for a lower centre of gravity and there’s new sole and heel shaping all of which TaylorMade say makes the new M1 8 yards longer than the original.    

Our verdict:

Take nothing away from the M1, it was an absolutely top performer in our test, so long as it was in the hands of our pro tester. Its head is 25cc smaller (150cc) than the M2 and as much as that makes for a super cute little head sat behind the ball, it does means slightly less forgiveness than M2. In the hands of our pro tester the M1 produced the joint fastest ball speed average (with the M2 at 158mph) and a carry distance a single yard behind the longest (M2  256yards). 

TaylorMade M1 Fairway

Bottom line:

The split between our pro and amateur testers on the M1 and M2 fairways highlights the direction lots of club golfers should head in. M1’s great so long as you’re a confident reasonably proficient golfer and you’re game doesn’t need absolute forgiveness.
