TaylorMade M6 Fairway Review

This fairway wood is for golfers seeking a high performance, non-adjustable option.

Key technology Like on the M6 driver, Twist Face offers a corrective face angle on off-centre hits, engineered to reduce side spin and deliver straighter shots. A deep face and larger carbon crown provides optimal distance with excellent playability.

Improved slot flexibility for a larger COR area and better off-center performance, especially on low-face strikes while the new TPU slot insert is more flush with the surface for improved turf interaction.

Looks The very low profile design sits flush to the turf and the silver front section contrasting with the black face makes it very easy to align.

Performance The M6 launches and flights the ball quite high with mid-to-low spin helping maximize carry distance. It has been equally adept from the tee and fairway so far.

Our verdict on the new TaylorMade M5 driver…


  • £499.00

 

It packs an awfully powerful punch for a fairway wood. It has a hot, driver-like feel off the face and offers a great deal of forgiveness to rescue a poor strike.

We like the lighter feel and larger footprint compared to the M5, it seemed to make it easier to swing and get the ball airborne without climbing too high into the wind.

It’s also one of the best looking fairway woods around and the smooth full sole glides effortlessly along the top of the turf, encouraging you to go for par fives in two when previously you might play it safe.

It isn’t adjustable, but it comes in a variety of lofts as well as a D-Type version with extra draw bias to help those with a slice.
