2018 M Family
What do you get when you take carbon fiber clubhead construction elements and combine it with a radical departure from traditional driver-face design? The TaylorMade 2018 M3 and M4 Drivers. But, the 2018 TaylorMade M Family is so much more than just the highly anticipated drivers, it features a full lineup of clubs including the all new M3 and M4 Fairway Woods, Rescues and Irons. Bring your game to the next level with TaylorMade's revolutionary new 2018 M Family of clubs.
Twist Face Technology
TaylorMade's R&D discovered vastly different results from human swings compared to labratory-controlled robot swings using the standard bulge and roll clubface. Robots can correct shots off the heel and toe producing a ball flight that brings the ball back to only a few yards off the target line. Humans, however, are not so consistent and tend to either snap-hook or push-slice shots off of the toe and heel respectively. After interpreting the data, TaylorMade decided to forego the standard bulge and roll clubface and designed the all new Twist Face technology. Twist Face technology is engineered to correct for those inherent swing tendencies in real time.
Hammerhead Speed Pocket
With all the focus on Twist Face technology, the unsung hero of the new TaylorMade M3 & M4 Drivers is Hammerhead Speed Pocket technology. In order to maximize ball speeds right up against the USGA/R&A legal limit TaylorMade engineered a pocket in the sole right behind the face, which they are calling Hammerhead technology. While similar to the Speed pocket of the M2 Driver, the new new Hammerhead technology is wider and deeper, creating a massive sweet spot to enhance ballspeed and forgiveness across the entire face, and reinforcing the outer portions of the slot allowed TaylorMade to create a lighter, more flexible face.

The TaylorMade M3 and M4 Fairway Woods both have a 5-Layer Carbon Crown and Speed Pocket on the sole, but also some key variations designed to cater to the needs of all players.
The M3 fairway wood features a carbon sole plate in addition to the carbon crown freeing up even more discretionary weight to redistribute for added forgiveness. A 29g sliding track weight behind the Speed Pocket and an adjustable loft sleeve gives players the flexibility to tailor the loft and lie to their preferred ball flight.
The M4 fairway woods use Geocoustic shaping, an intricate blend of geometric and acoustical engineering, to produce versatile playability and superior feel. Internally, the M4 combines Inverted Cone Technology and split internal weights with the Speed Pocket to create a larger sweet spot for higher ball speeds across the whole face.
TaylorMade is synonymous with rescues and have always been a pioneer in hybrid technology. While the M3 and M4 Rescues do not have a carbon fiber crown, they do have the exceptional two-tone styling seen in the drivers and fairways.
The Taylormade M3 Rescue has the same Tour-inspired shaping as the M3 Driver and Fairway Woods that is preferred by better players and the adjustability to fit all. A sliding weight on the sole and the loft sleeve lets players dial this rescue in to their precise ball flight while maintaining an unparalleled level of forgiveness.
Following the form of the M4 Driver and M4 Fairway Wood, the TaylorMade M4 Rescue features Speed Pocket and Geocoustic technologies as well as split internal weights that increase forgiveness and promote more ball speed across the face. Players who prefer a fixed hosel will want to give the M4 Rescue and its fluted hosel a closer look.
TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons feature an impressive amount of technology packed into each iron, but the engine that drives it all is RIBCOR. This technology localizes face flexibility to transfer more energy to the ball, increasing ball speeds and promoting straighter shots. While both sets of irons also include Face Slots and Speed Pockets to maximize that face flexibility and forgiveness in the most common areas players mishit, the heel, toe and low on the face.
In addition to RIBCOR technology, Speed Pocket and Face Slots, the TaylorMade M3 irons has 15g of high density tungsten weighting to optimize CG placement, increase MOI and improve stability and launch. The M3 irons are refined to suite the better player
