Rick Shiels and Mark Crossfield: TaylorMade M2 Irons Review
A lot of buzz has been made by TaylorMade with the new M2 lineup of clubs — some good, some bad — and the woods were tagged as a completion to the M family, but where does that leave the M2 irons? What void do they fill, or what family do they complete? TaylorMade recently released the PSI irons which are for better players, but how are the TaylorMade M2 irons any better, or different for that matter, than the game improvement Aeroburner irons?
There is no disputing that TaylorMade knows how to make clubs go longer, but at what cost? Lengthening shafts, and strengthening lofts to the point that a 6-iron is now a 5-iron by common standards has to cost you something even if the CG is lower and further back in an attempt to retain trajectory. Is an extra couple of yards worth digging deep into your pockets for an new yet barely different set of clubs? The popular response says, “no”, and they say it loudly.
TaylorMade engineers are no doubt talented, but do they understand how golf is played? And, as far as the few TaylorMade M2 irons reviews that we have so far, most of them harp on the tech and design of the clubs, but few address the big money question: are they worth it?
Rick Shiels and Mark Crossfield have their preferences of clubs, but compared to most reviewers, they evaluate equipment in a very unbiased fashion, and they make no exception in the below TaylorMade M2 irons reviews they posted to their YouTube channels. Rick’s is particularly interesting as he compares the TaylorMade M2 6-iron to his Ben Hogan 5-iron.
Until more of us can get our hands on and provide independent TaylorMade M2 irons reviews, these two are arguably our best bet. We would be remiss if we didn’t tell you to follow their channels because we are big fans. Rick Shiels’ channel can be found here, and Mark Crossfield’s channel is right here.
