TECH: Tay­lorMade’s first Res­cue to fea­ture a two-tone crown to match the

M metal woods. A longer, more flex­i­ble speed pocket of­fers speed and for­give­ness par­tic­u­larly on shots low on the face.

WE SAY: Tay­lorMade’s new M1 and M2 prod­uct line se­ri­ously sim­pli­fies their of­fer­ing for con­sumers this year. And the choice be­tween the two hy­brids high­lights bril­liantly which type of golfer each range is aimed at. Our test pro, like a lot of good players, has a ten­dency to pull wider body hy­brids left, so M2 wouldn’t be his choice. But Simon’s slower swing speed is less well suited to nar­row body hy­brids as he needs ex­tra help launch­ing shots in the air, par­tic­u­larly from the deck. The M2’s more for­giv­ing and per­forms bril­liantly. A ball speed 2mph quicker and 8 yards fur­ther than the test av­er­age is im­pres­sive. Oh, and our test pro’s long­est shot off the deck car­ried 230m!

VER­DICT: Its lighter shaft (65g com­pared to M1’s 80g reg flex) means it’s a bit of a speed ma­chine. It’s re­spon­sive, for­giv­ing and easy to launch from the tee, fair­way, rough and even a fair­way bunker.
