What we say...
Tech: Face slots and a new thinner Speed Pocket design combine to increase face flex irrespective of where shots hits the face. Geocoustic engineering ensures the sound and feel are top notch and a sleek profile mean TaylorMade’s most technological distance iron has a massive audience.
What we say: The new M2 is as sleek as an SGI iron can be. It’s head is nowhere near as big as lots of the competition and some very clever bevelling across the top edge means it looks really appealing behind the ball. As you’d expect from the strongest loft (7-iron) it posted the longest single and average shot carry distance, along with the quickest single and average ball speeds. By all accounts it’s a hands-down victory in this category.
Verdict: It’s a bit unfair comparing the M2 to other SGI irons because its stronger loft (even if it’s only 1°) means we can’t comparing apples with apples. But no matter how you look at it, these are a seriously powerful set. If we’re honest, they’d help a lot of golfers who don’t really want to admit they need help.
