SW, LW

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.
