7i loft/length: 30.5° / 36.75”

TECH: Face Slots and Speed Pock­ets in­crease flex at the perime­ter to im­prove ball speed con­sis­tency and drop-off. Geo­cous­tic engi­neer­ing uses a stiff cav­ity badge to at­tach the face to the body to con­trol un­wanted vi­bra­tions and de­liver great sound and feel.

WE SAY: Many golfers will want to know how the new M1s com­pare to the M2s. Well, if you test them on a launch mon­i­tor you’re likely to go M2. Why? They are 2° stronger in loft (half a club dif­fer­ence) which for our test pro equated to 5mph of ball speed and 12 yards of carry. But that ab­so­lutely doesn’t mean the M1 is a slouch. All three testers recorded ei­ther their fastest in­di­vid­ual shot or av­er­age ball speed with the M1 (of the GI irons here) and Simon car­ried them fur­ther (151m) than any other game im­prove­ment iron.

VER­DICT: Iron de­sign­ers will tell you that com­bin­ing good for­give­ness in a more com­pact head is a real chal­lenge. So while the M1 is more com­pact than the M2, it wasn’t quite as long. But it didn’t stop gear ed Simon re­ally want­ing a set.
