VER­DICT A worthy fol­low-up to last year’s model, the new M2 was tweaked in the right places (note the ad­di­tion of face slots). With ev­ery gram of weight pre­cious, the re­vised hosel re­quires less ma­te­rial and has a slot to make bend­ing it for fit­ting eas­ier. The un­der­cut in the topline saves weight, al­low­ing for a lower cen­tre of grav­ity. Ku­dos to Tay­lorMade for re­search­ing how to im­prove sound in a thin-face iron. The cav­ity badge has been re­vamped with ribs and damp­ing tape to op­ti­mise the acous­tics and feel. COM­MENTS (L) The feel of these irons is tremen­dous. Cen­tre hits jump off the face. (M) Beau­ti­fully con­structed, and the weight­ing is well bal­anced. They look good in the bag, too. (H) The sole seems to float through the grass.
