VER­DICT The more for­giv­ing of Tay­lor-Made’s hy­brids, the M2 fea­tures a con­fi­dence-in­spir­ing low-face pro­file and a longer, more flexible slot cut through the sole (com­pared with last year’s model) to help im­prove the way the ball re­bounds off the face. While cut­ting a slot through the sole in­creases dis­tance, mak­ing the flex­ing of that struc­ture sound and feel ideal is nearly as im­por­tant. So en­gi­neers fine-tuned the fluted hosel to save weight and con­trol vi­bra­tion. COM­MENTS (L) Solid strikes with­out be­ing clangy. A clas­sic hy­brid that in­stills con­fi­dence. (M) Sim­ple to get up like a hot-air bal­loon, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing dis­tance. (H) A real mus­cle club.
