TaylorMade M1 Driver
20 years in the making, TaylorMade have announced a potential game-changer in the golfing world with the unveiling of the multi-material constructed M1 driver.
The main thing you need to know about the M1 is it’s made to deliver more speed, high launch, low spin, and increased ball speeds on off-centre hits – which tend to occur fairly regularly for us!
To achieve that, it’s been constructed with a combination of titanium and a seven-layer carbon composite, which TaylorMade say make it the longest driver in the company’s illustrious history. It also features a revolutionary sounding ‘T Track’ weight system which changes the ball flight.
TaylorMade have tended to stick to titanium when it comes to their drivers, but the use of a carbon composite crown design means that the M1 is significantly lighter and gives it a lower centre of gravity than previous clubs.
The added T-Track system also means Joes have 25g of adjustable weight to play with to suit their preference. There’s 15g of moveable weight in a front track, so you can adjust the draw or fade bias by up to 25 yards. The back track offers you a further 10g, which creates up to 300rpm of backspin and 0.8 degree in launch angle adjustment.
The M1 also has a very low centre of gravity which TaylorMade say will “project at the centre of the face and increase the energy transfer at impact.” Did we forget to mention it’s a thing of beauty? A classic Black face with a clean White forward section and composite rear is exactly what we want in a driver.
We don’t know about you but we’re just a bit excited about the M1. And if you’re not, bear in mind Jason Day has tested it and claims it’s given him an extra 3mph in ball speed and 10 yards on the fairway. If it’s good enough for him, it’s probably alright for us!
The TaylorMade M1 Driver looks fantastic and is available from the 8th October. It will set Joes back around £429 but nobody said winning was cheap! Check out more details at the TaylorMade Website.
