TaylorMade Golf has announced two new iron sets, the M3 and M4 irons, which build upon the successes of their ’17 predecessors with the introduction of its new RIBCOR technology.
The new M4 irons offer players increased distance, forgiveness, and feel. The new M4 irons push the boundary of COR limit, providing the maximum possible ballspeed off the face.
To achieve M4’s crisp sound and feel, TaylorMade’s new RIBCOR internal ribbing structure works to stiffen the iron body while imparting maximum energy to the ball during impact.
Additionally, a multi-material damping badge works in tandem with the RIBCOR technology to efficiently dampen undesirable vibrations during impact, producing major improvements in sound and feel.
M4 irons (4-7) utilise proven TaylorMade technologies made popular with previous models of the company’s irons, including Face Slots and Speed Pocket™, as well as a new, redesigned off-centre Inverted Cone Technology (which is also found in the M3 irons). Each technology has been individually optimised specifically for M4 to deliver incredible distance and forgiveness. Additional technologies in the M4 include a Fluted Hosel 2.0, an ultra-thin 1mm topline along with the company’s thinnest-ever leading edge.
Available at retail on February 16, 2018, M4 irons will be offered in 4-iron through LW.
RRP: £749 (Steel), £849 (Graphite)
M3 irons answer the challenge of creating an iron that delivers distance, while retaining accuracy and workability in a more appealing, compact head shape preferred by better players. Housed within the smaller design of the M3 iron, RIBCOR technology works to protect ballspeeds, which improves overall accuracy and increases forgiveness across the clubface, specifically on off-center impacts.
Similar to the M4 irons, the M3 irons push the legal limit of COR to maximise the legal ballspeed across the clubface. TaylorMade engineers were able to accomplish this by incorporating new technologies, including RIBCOR, which stiffens the iron’s body to impart maximum energy to the ball during impact.
Additionally, a multi-material damping badge works in tandem with the RIBCOR technology to efficiently dampen undesirable vibrations during impact, providing a clean, crisp sound and feel.
Each M3 iron (3-7) also incorporates many of the same proven technologies as the M4 irons: Face Slots, Speed Pocket and a redesigned off-center Inverted Cone — all optimised specifically for the M3 to provide players with distance, height, forgiveness and straightness. Additional technologies in the M3 include a 180° Fluted Hosel, a 360° Undercut and individually sized tungsten weights to locate head CG for optimal launch and ballspeed.
With M3, TaylorMade also appeals to the eye of the low-to-mid-handicap golfer with a refined, confidence-inspiring shape.
