TaylorMade's M1 Driver was a great first act,
00:08
but like a lot of great movies, there's a sequel
00:11
and that's the M2.
00:13
They look and address almost exactly alike,
00:16
kinda have that same black and white cookie look,
00:18
same carbon composite crown, but the difference here is
00:22
they've taken the weight that they saved
00:24
and instead of using it to do the adjustability,
00:27
what they've done is they've moved the weight all the way
00:29
in the back here, provide greater stability.
00:32
They also have a slot in the sole here, provide face-flex,
00:36
lot of distance, really good driver.
00:38
And again, it's incorporating some of those same ideas
00:41
from M1 in the sense that you've got
00:43
the contrasting look and address.
00:45
Gives you a little bit more of an open look
00:47
that's gonna encourage you to close the face at impact.
00:50
Something that average golfers struggle with.
00:52
The M2 is the average golfer version of M1.
00:55
It eliminates the complexity of the adjustability,
00:58
but there's still some adjustability built in, in the hosel.
01:01
It can go two degrees higher loft, two degrees lower loft.
01:06
So, again, you'll be able to kinda manage your ball flight
01:09
with the adjustable hosel.
01:10
Yeah, I mean it really is a great club
01:12
for a chopper like yourself.
01:14
You know what else you would like about this club?
01:16
It's 100 dollars less than that
01:18
and for a tight-wad like you, that's perfect.
