Stock shaft: TM REAX HL 88 (s) TM REAX (g)
7i loft/length: 28.5° / 37”
TECH: Face Slots and a thinner Speed Pocket combine to increase face flex irrespective of where shots hit the face. Geocoustic engineering improves the sound and feel.
WE SAY: The new M2 is as sleek as an SGI iron can be. Its head is nowhere near as large as lots of the competition and some very clever bevelling across the top edge means it looks really appealing behind the ball, almost like a GI iron. As you’d expect from the strongest loft (7-iron) it posted the longest single and average carry, along with the quickest single and average ball speeds. By all accounts it’s a hands-down victory in this category.
VERDICT: A stronger loft (even if it’s only 1°) means they are absolute rockets. But – and this is crucial – they went the same height
(if not higher) than the test average. That means you’re getting extra carry, but great stopping power; the ultimate SGI combo.
