VERDICT The M2 looks a lot like the M1, but that’s where the similarities end. The M2’s slot stretches nearly the entire length from heel to toe to help the face flex near the R&A limit. The variable-thickness face has an “inverted cone” shape to improve speed on mishits, especially those lower on the face. A redesigned fluted hosel helps all that power sound a little smoother. COMMENTS (L) Well-struck shots have a neutral flight and seem to hang in the air. (M) More of a crack at impact, and it definitely has a motor in it. (H) There’s a ton of forgiveness, with a really meaty feel.
