This is the TaylorMade M2,
00:01
the more forgiving of TaylorMade's M drivers.
00:08
It features a carbon composite crown that helps save weight.
00:12
That pushes that weight to the extremes,
00:14
gets more forgiveness on off center hits.
00:16
In addition, the M2 solves the problem of oversize drivers,
00:19
which can be too spinny and sound terrible.
00:23
How did they do this?
00:24
The carbon composite crown helps
00:26
lower the center of gravity.
00:28
But they've also done it with a thing called geo coustics.
00:30
They've shaped the driver differently on the sole
00:34
to make the sound better, and that also allows
00:37
the crown to overhang the sole
00:40
so you've got a more forgiving overall shape at address.
00:44
The M2 is the forgiving option in TaylorMade's M family.
00:48
It is gold on this year's hot list.
00:50
Four and a half stars in performance,
00:53
and four and a half stars in looks, sound and feel.
