  • TaylorMade M5 and M6 Drivers

    A few weeks ago, THP writer Canadan had a chance to go to TaylorMade and learn all about their new M5 and M6 drivers for 2019, and you can read all about the tech and specs of these drivers in his article here

      They look cool at address and from the bottom, not sure about the screws though. Will have to see it in person.

        Wow - Sounds like there is some serious engineering going on with these heads.
        Do I read correctly and assume correctly that every head will be tested before being release for sale "4.A proprietary algorithm to tune each head"?

        I'm not sure I understand this description:
        Included in the 2019 M6 release will be a “D-Type” head that makes the face appear more open, leading to a more closed face at impact"
        Not sure how a face appearing more open would lead to more closed face at impact. Maybe it's the Twist Face working?

        Is the "D-Type" a "Draw" Model"

          Heres some info from TM's site on the M6 D model

          M6 D-TYPE DRIVER

          SPEED INJECTED FOR MAXIMUM FORGIVENESS WITH A DRAW


          JUICED-UP WITH SPEED INJECTED TWIST FACE
          Every M6 D-Type driver head has been individually injected to reach the maximum legal limit of ball speed. Step up to the tee with the confidence of having a draw-biased driver with Tour-caliber speed—hit it far and play a draw with M6 D-Type.


          INJECTED FOR SPEED™

          • Every head is individually speed tested and injected with tuning resin to optimize COR across the entire face

          • Speed Injection process is designed to deliver maximum ball speed and distance every time for every player


          TWIST FACE™

          • Revolutionary new face curvature with a corrective face angle on off center hits, engineered to reduce side spin and deliver straighter shots

          • Twist Face provides more loft in the high toe and less loft in the low-heel to produce more consistent spin where golfers commonly mis-hit


          AERODYNAMIC CARBON SOLE DESIGN WITH "INERTIA GENERATOR"

          • Sleek aerodynamic shaping provides increased clubhead speed for more distance • Full carbon sole construction allows for increased discretionary mass placed low and back for maximum MOI and low CG

          • Inertia Generator stores 46g of weight low and back for maximum forgiveness


          DRAW-BIASED DESIGN

          • The two-tone crown cosmetics have been altered to make the face angle appear more open, resulting in a more closed face at impact


          “The M6 D-Type driver delivers the incredible performance of the M6 driver in a more draw-biased and easy-to-launch package. This driver is engineered to help golfers avoid the right side of the golf course and hit it farther off the tee than they ever have before"

            I watched Rick Shiels review this morning and his ball speed was not any faster with these drivers with his swing speed. He did gain yardage and he is attributing that to the lower spin.

              I like the look. No doubt will give these a shot in my driver fitting this spring.

                “Where the M4 weighting was quite higher, the M6 drops around 46 grams to help promote serious forgiveness.”

                Whoa there. 46 grams? Good grief

                    I like them having a 435 cc head in M5. I don’t think the rear track will make a huge difference on lateral dispersion. They look good at address.

                      Great write up Dan
                      This is going to be a hard ponder come February. I struggle mightily with the driver so the gains in forgiveness is something that has me seriously intrigued.

                        I am not feeling the looks to be honest, but seeing as my instructor will have them in soon I will no doubt give them a hit and see how they perform compared to my current driver

                        Of all of the M-line drivers, the 2016 M2 is still the one that gave me the best results from what I have tried

                          I'm interested to see more numbers on the ball speed compared to previous models. The few reviews I've watched so far didn't see any noticeable difference.

                            That 435cc M5 is calling out to me. Please point me in the direction of the TaylorMade Event signup!

                            It seems like the marketing is going to focus on the fact that every single driver sent to market will be tuned out to reach the max legal limit of ball speed. I really like the idea of a campaign like that but its going to be a heck of a hard sell moving forward if they're claiming they reached the threshold that the USGA will allow.

                              I am more partial to the looks of the M6 personally. I find it a little amusing that Rick Shiels gained basically no ball speed. His spin numbers were also borderline unplayable. While great for distance, you would have to be an insane ball striker to consistently play a shot with that low of spin.

                              I am personally going with the Epic Flash (already put money down). So, I have to admit that I was a little nervous. If he would have seen a massive jump in ball speed, I may have had to rethink my decision. At the very least, as long as the Epic Flash is just as long as the Rogue and Epic, I am not leaving anything on the table by not playing the new TM drivers.
