In 2017, TaylorMade introduces the M1 irons — an entirely new line that packs the distance and forgiveness of M2 irons in a more compact shape for improved control. M1 irons have been crafted to bring as much of the speed, forgiveness, and playability of the M2 irons, but deliver it to the player who prefers a slightly more refined look along with additional control and workability.
M1 irons feature both Speed Pocket Technology and Face Slots, which are designed to increase flexibility at the boundaries of the clubface to improve consistency of ball speed on off-center impacts. This combination of technologies is designed to produce longer, higher shots with improved consistency and dispersion on all shots.
With a smaller overall head size, reduced offset, thin toplines, and shorter blade lengths, M1 irons are more compact than traditional distance irons and provide a confidence-inducing look at address. The result is a visual appearance at address suited for the aspirational and better players while offering performance typically found in modern distance irons.
