www.tay­lor­made­golf.com Lofts: 2/17°, 3/19°,

4/21°, 5/24°

Stock shaft: Mit­subishi Kuro Kage TiNi 70HY

Ad­justable hosel: Yes

How much loft change:

+/- 1.5°

TECH: A 27g slid­ing weight can be po­si­tioned to cre­ate a draw, fade or neu­tral bias. 3° of loft ad­justa­bil­ity through the hosel adap­tor means it’s pos­si­ble to dial in lofts and gap­ping to suit your own game.

WE SAY: For de­cent players, se­lect­ing a hy­brid is much more about gap­ping be­tween a fair­way wood and their irons, so dis­tance is less of a con­sid­er­a­tion. That said the M1 was vir­tu­ally in­sep­a­ra­ble from the other pre­mium (Call­away Apex) nar­row body hy­brid. Be­ing the only ad­justable-weight hy­brid, it does of­fer shot­shap­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties which you don’t get else­where. With the slid­ing weight po­si­tioned neu­trally there’s a lot of mass at the back of the head which cre­ated more spin than Call­away’s Apex, which could help flight the M1 bet­ter.

VER­DICT: The M1’s for golfers who ei­ther hit down on their hy­brids (like irons) or have a ten­dency to pull hy­brids left. It is ex­pen­sive, but it gives a level of flex­i­bil­ity de­cent golfers have come to ex­pect.
