Fourth Generation of M Series
Along with a new driver, TaylorMade has released the M5 & M6 irons that feature new Speed Bridge technology, engineered to both further increase distance and enhance sound and feel.
Each iron is available in a different package. The M5 irons, which have a more compact appearance, are aimed at mid-handicappers and some better players that prefer a more traditional profile, while the M6 irons, that boast slightly stronger lofts, are made for mid to high handicappers who want maximum forgiveness and distance.
TaylorMade M5 Irons
Designed for the serious golfer, the new M5 irons present a more compact, traditional profile with less offset than the larger M6. The heavier tungsten provides forgiveness in a shorter blade length and shifts the center of gravity both lower and closer to the center of the face.
The M5’s look is superior to the prior M3 irons with the addition of a thru-slot Speed Pocket in the sole of the club and a new Speed Bridge design that connects the topline of the clubhead to the back bar.
The combination of the Speed Bridge, Speed Pocket and an extremely thin clubface along with patented Inverted Cone Technology in the 4-7 irons make them longer and more forgiving across a larger area of the face.
The new M5 irons are equipped with a HYBRAR compression damping system and multi-material badges for a softer overall feel. The 360-degree undercuts with stiffening topline ribs provide more face flex and a new fluted hosel ensures a lower and deeper center of gravity and better launch.
TaylorMade M6 Irons
Aimed at the average golfer, M6 Irons are designed for higher launch. TaylorMade claims that the M6 irons are the company’s most high-performance game improvement irons yet. Despite being built with the same technology as the M5, the M6 has a larger clubhead and more offset.
In addition, the 4-7 irons of the M6 range also feature the aforementioned thru-slot Speed Pocket for enhanced ball speed, distance, and forgiveness on shots struck low on the face. The M6s also have much of the other technology featured in the M5s, such as the Speed Bridge, extremely thin clubface, Inverted Cone Technology, HYBRAR vibration damping and all the other goodies, which also come with a new set of wedges designed to be more friendly to mid and high-handicappers around the greens.
