TaylorMade have launched the new M3 and M4 range of drivers, woods and irons ahead of the revolutionary products hitting the market in February.

The leading manufacturer is pushing the boundaries further than ever before and the long-awaited unveiling of the TaylorMade M3 and M4 ranges is showcased by the ground breaking “Twist Face” technology—a multi-curved feature in the face—used in the M3 and M4 drivers.

Using videos of Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Jon Rahm and Jason Day, TaylorMade have been giving away teases of what we might expect—those clips showing the surprise on the faces of the world’s leading names as they discovered the design of the M3 and M4 products.

The idea behind the design of the TaylorMade M3 and M4, which will replace the existing M1 and M2 options when they are officially launch for sale on February 16, is to help golfers hit straighter shots and find fairways like never before. The Twist Face technology helps promote that via its forgiving and unique accentuated curvature which works to bring the ball path back to center.

So what can we expect from the TaylorMade M3 and M4 range?

TaylorMade M3 Driver

The TaylorMade M3 driver features the unique Twist Face technology in the face, which effectively twists to compensate for off-center strikes. The driver also has a reshaped Hammerhead slot in the face, which now creates a 67 percent larger sweet spot according to TaylorMade. It is a truly adjustable driver with the new Y Track and two weights helping to create more than 1,000 combinations of loft and lie angles to change the spin, launch, forgiveness and shot shape you get. With an adjustable hosel, the number becomes 13,000-plus.

TaylorMade M3 Woods

There is no Twist Face technology incorporated into the M3 fairway wood, but this is still a significant improvement on previous ranges from TaylorMade. The adjustable weights are now heavier and the track is longer, creating greater flexibility. The TaylorMade M3 hybrid wood is also significantly more adjustable with the sliding track longer and re-positioned.

TaylorMade M3 Irons

With the TaylorMade M3 irons, the focus is once again on maximising distance, feel and control via a low CG and the flexible face used in the M1s. Face Slots and the brand new Ribcor technology—a design of two bars across the hitting spot—help provide a solid clubhead to give golfers (particularly low-to-mid handicappers) maximum confidence over the ball.

TaylorMade M4 Driver

The TaylorMade M4 driver is incredibly user friendly, with less of a focus on adjustability when compared to the M3. The M4 has a fixed weight, with different versions featuring this weight in different places. There is a bigger clubhead and face thanks to the design of the curved Geocoustic sole, and that creates a greater sweet spot to provide a more consistent strike.

TaylorMade M4 Woods

The TaylorMade M4 fairway wood and hybrid is more efficient than the M2 with a lower CG promoting a higher launch angle. The sole panel helps create a better ball speed and as a result greater distance. This is no surprise when you consider that TaylorMade are billing the fairway wood as the ultimate distance fairway. The hybrid is set up with a draw bias and will suit the game of some golfers more than the M3 option.

TaylorMade M4 Irons

Like the M3 irons, the TaylorMade M4 irons includes the Face Slots and Ribcor technology for improved distance and forgiveness. But, significantly, it only features up to a 7-iron. The irons are ideal for golfers on the lookout for added distance without sacrificing forgiveness and feel.
