Taylormade M6 Rescue.

 

TaylorMade's M range combines research, analytics and their breakthrough Twist Face Technology. The M5 and M6 Fairways and M6 Rescue are available for pre-order now and start from £229. 

M5 FAIRWAY — TITANIUM WITH A TWIST

Following comprehensive research and analytics of thousands of shots, TaylorMade engineers have also successfully incorporated its breakthrough Twist Face technology into a fairway wood. Like the M drivers, the faces have been modified to counteract the gear effect on common mis-hits in the high-toe and low-heel. Although the concept is the same as in the driver, the exact geometry is slightly different to account for the unique mass properties and impact location patterns in fairway woods compared to drivers.

The M5 fairway also represents a complete re-engineering of TaylorMade adjustable fairways. The M5 fairway features an advanced multi-material head construction with a titanium body, 5-layer carbon composite crown with a steel movable weight — a tri-material construction. The two low-density components – carbon and titanium – led to more discretionary weight, which engineers used to completely redesign the sliding weight system for a lower CG location and increased adjustability.  

The M5’s adjustable weight system features a 65g movable steel weight, which is slightly more than 30% of the total head weight, allowing for generous draw/fade adjustability. The position of the steel weight creates a lower centre of gravity for a more efficient energy transfer with higher launch and lower spin. The unique design of movable weight also creates a more seamless sole contour, producing smoother turf interaction regardless of the weight position. The M5 fairway also features a more streamlined 12-position loft sleeve for up to 4° of adjustability (+-2°). 

SPECIFICATIONS, PRICING & AVAILABILITY

Available for preorder from January 14 and at retail on February 15 2019 at an RRP of £369.

M6 FAIRWAY WOOD

The M6 fairway adds to TaylorMade’s rich lineage of high-performance fairway woods with the addition of revolutionary Twist Face technology in a fairway for the first time (alongside the M5); the result is an explosive, yet playable fairway from the tee or off the deck. New in '19 is the addition of ‘Rocket 3’ a 14° offering for those seeking reduced spin and slightly increased ball speed.

ADVANCED SPEED POCKET™ DESIGN

The Speed Pocket has been re-engineered for the M6 fairway woods to provide even more ball speed on low face impacts. A new TPU slot insert has also been designed to sit flush with the sole to improve sole interaction and eliminate turf drag from the Speed Pocket. 

The M6 fairways also improve performance over the M4 by optimising CG placement directly behind centre face, producing maximum energy transfer at impact. Maintaining a very low centre of gravity, the face height of the M6 fairways is also slightly taller, creating a more confidence-inspiring look at address with more available impact area on the clubface. The new larger carbon composite crown increases discretionary mass which is concentrated low in the head, lowering CG for a higher launch while maintaining high MOI for excellent forgiveness.

M6 D-TYPE FAIRWAY WOOD

In addition to the M6 fairway, TaylorMade has also created an M6 D-Type fairway, engineered with the same technologies in a more draw-biased package. This is accomplished through divergent face masking and modified internal weighting that effectively delivers additional draw bias in the ball flight up to 15 yards.

M6 RESCUE™ — ULTIMATE VERSATILITY WITH A TWIST

Rounding out the 2019 M6 series metal woods is the M6 Rescue; TaylorMade’s longest and most versatile hybrid club to date. 

For the first time ever, the M6 Rescue incorporates Twist Face technology, following the lead of its fairway and driver siblings to produce longer and straighter shots across the face. As the face of the M6 Rescue is significantly smaller than that of the M6 driver, the face curvature is thus more pronounced. As a result, the two-tone crown has been meticulously designed to mask its increased curvature.

The M6 Rescue features a low CG steel body construction with a stepped crown creating a lower CG and easy alignment. It also features a thinner and faster face for improved ball speed and overall distance. A redesigned more flexible Speed Pocket with a TPU slot insert that sits flush with the sole delivers a larger COR area with better off-centre performance, especially on low-face strikes and improved turf interaction.
