VER­DICT De­sign­ing clubs for bet­ter play­ers is a strength of Tay­lor-Made. So in de­sign­ing the M1 iron, the com­pany sought to com­bine the speed and for­give­ness of its M2 model with a more com­pact look that of­fers a hint of work­a­bil­ity. The mod­er­ate off­set and straighter lead­ing edge pro­vide an at­trac­tive look, and tung­sten in the toe of the 3- through 7-irons gave de­sign­ers more free­dom to cre­ate the de­sired head shape with­out sac­ri­fic­ing ease of launch or for­give­ness. Speed off the face isn’t an is­sue, ei­ther, be­cause a pocket in the sole and slots in the face are tech­nolo­gies that have been car­ried over from pre­vi­ous Tay­lor-Made irons.

COM­MENTS (L) These lead the league in hang time. The ball just stays in the air. (M) The sole slot must work. Good dis­tance on shots hit two grooves low on the face.
