On September 8, 2015, Taylormade released its new M1 Driver, Wood, and Rescue series. The M1 driver is getting most of the hype, which is understandable considering the new technology and design it features.
PGA tour players from team Taylormade such as Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Justin Rose, and others were the first to product test the new M1 drivers. The new equipment changes were greeted with pure excitement.
The Taylormade M1 drivers are available in 2 different models to accommodate a player's personal preference, the 430 and the 460. The different models are nearly identical with a white finish and a black, speckled carbon composite half shell crown, only differing slightly in size and loft. To begin with, the design of the new M1 drivers is simply attractive to look at. The beautiful carbon composite crown does actually serve a purpose though. It is lighter in weight, giving the driver an overall lower center of gravity that offers forgiveness while also increasing distance.
Similar to the R15 driver, The M1 also makes use of offering maximum adjustability with its double weight technology. However, instead of having a single track, the two weights move perpendicularly on a T-track. This allows a player to change both the launch height and the launch direction separately. The lateral track has a 15 gram weight that allows the player to compensate for a fade or a slice by changing the directional bias by up to 25 yards of dispersion, according to Taylormade. The 10 gram adjustable weight that runs perpendicularly allows a player to adjust the launch angle of the driver head to preference as well. To finish it all off, the loft sleeve on the hosel will adjust the face angle, loft, and lie of the club to spec perfection.
The M1 driver enables a player to feel that he or she is truly taylor making a club that fits his or her unique swing. Big props to the company that continues to make "The #1 Driver on Tour"! What will Taylormade surprise us with next?
