The new M3 & M4 hybrids from TaylorMade have been designed to compliment the features that the corresponding drivers and fairways possess. As in the other clubs, the M3 is designed for max adjustabililty while the M4 focuses on speed and increased forgiveness.
The M3 has been upgraded in several ways over the M1 hybrid that it replaces. The movable weight has been increased from 27gms to 30gms and the head features the same paint as the rest of the line, a matte silver grey colour. The M4 carries over the general head shape of the 2017 M1 hybrid, which itself was derived from some of Adams Golf’s most popular tour only models. As in the fairways, the head also has TaylorMade’s Speed Pocket tech, allowing for better ballspeeds
The adapter sleeve allows the club head loft to be changed by a total of 3 degrees and is made from lightweight aluminum. Just as the driver and fairway, the stock shaft is the MCA Tensei Blue hybrid version in the 80gm class. It comes in R,S and X flexes while the A flex is 70gms. Available lofts are 17, 19, 21 and 24 degrees. LH versions are restricted to lofts of 19 and 21 degrees.
The M4, while not containing all the tricks of the M3, is a hybrid designed to launch the ball higher and have better ball speeds on imperfect strikes. The club face isn’t as deep and the sole features a full face Speed Pocket, enabling the increased forgiveness on low face strikes. The M4 also features a draw bias and the same split-weight pad as the fairway, allowing for more mass to be placed further away from the face, helping raise the flight of the ball. The Geocoustic technology is also present and allows for better feel and sound at impact.
Loft options for the M4 hybrid are 19, 22, 25 and 28 degrees in the right hand models. Left hand versions are available in 19, 22 and 15 degrees. Fujikura’s Atmos Red shaft powers the club and is available in 50gm A flex, 60gm R flex and 70gm S flex.
Pricing for the M3 hybrid will be $299CAD, and the M4 will be listed at $270CAD.
