TaylorMade Men's 2017 M1 Driver

Enhanced Forgiveness Combined With Industry-Leading Personalization

The M1 driver was unquestionably a success for TaylorMade, but if there was one knock on the driver it was that it lacked forgiveness on mis-hits. Not surprisingly, improving MOI and better ball speed protection were priorities for TaylorMade engineers when it came to redesigning the M1, and those goals have been realized in the new model. The process of making the M1 more forgiving started with the use of 43 percent more carbon in the design of the clubhead. The weight that was saved with that change made it possible to move the CG lower and deeper, a combination that increases MOI and creates higher launch conditions without raising spin rates, which is the ideal recipe for distance. Additionally, thanks for the saved weight, the new M1’s footprint was expanded as well, another move that has created a higher MOI driver. That said, the new M1 remains as one of the most customizable drivers in golf. It’s T-Track moveable weight system now features more weight to be utilized in the two tracks, and the rear track has been extended to give players even more control over their launch conditions and spin rates. Sound and feel at impact has also been improved in the new M1, as engineers revamped the acoustic management system to align better with the new materials used in constructing the clubhead. As was the case with the original M1, the clubhead is 460cc and a lightweight adjustable loft sleeve (+/- 2 degrees) will enable players to adjust loft and lie angle to further optimize their trajectory and ball flight. New M1 drivers will also feature three stock shaft options: the Fujikura Pro XLR8 56 (high launch, mid-to-high spin), the Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver Dual-Core Tini 60 (mid launch, mid-to-low spin), and the Project X HZRDUS Yellow 65 (low launch, low spin). They will be available in lofts of 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, and 12 degrees with a stock length of 45.5 inches and swing weight of D4.

Ideal For:

Players of all ability levels who place a high value on personalization in a driver. An argument could have been made that the original M1 was really best suited for better players and high swing speed players, but that’s not the case with the new M1, which is much more forgiving than its predecessor. That said, the ultimate strength of the original M1 was immense customization that allowed players to fine tune their launch conditions, spin rates, and ball flight, and the new M1 offers even more personalization. Between that and the improved forgiveness, it’s a good bet that many players who gravitated toward M2 in 2016 will move into the new M1 this year.

New T-Track System

The back track of the new M1 is longer than the original and features a heavier weight, which allows players to even further dial in launch and spin.

Carbon Composite Construction

The use of more carbon in the clubhead created discretionary weight that was used to create a lower, deeper CG placement.

What They're Saying ...

“The M1 is still about personalization but one of the things we did hear and want to address was that it could be more forgiving. Even the best players in the world want more ball speed protection, and the new M1 is considerably more forgiving, which is a dramatic step forward.”

Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade Senior Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods

“Overall, I don’t know that golfers will appreciate the level of advancement in forgiveness in these products. The materials changed, and the construction process in which we put these products together is about ninety percent different. It was all done to make a revolutionary product line even better.”

Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade Senior Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great club Haven’t found a driver in 15 years to compare to my TM Quad from 2003, but this M1 is the answer. Great balance and I get at least 15 more yards. Rarely hit it way offline unless I get quick. Have to keep backswing slow and not get out in front of these lighter drivers.

wonder what shaft I would need.I am 62 with a very tempoed swing and I hit the ball high. Would like to lower my ball flight.

Asked by: Rick 03
The Project X HZRDUS Yellow 65 shaft has a low torque and would be the best for lowering your ball flight.

looking for 2017 tailor-made M1 460 driver 8.5 std D 8.50 Regular graphite mitsubishi kurokage dc titi 60 shaft can you give me a price please

Asked by: fitz1957
It will be $499.99 before the custom shaft up charge on that shaft if there is one. The only other up charge will be if there is a custom grip put on. This club would have to be custom ordered with that shaft. Unfortunately, we do not have the custom options available at this time for this club quite yet, so I would not be able to tell you an exact price. They should be up for custom order very shortly, and once they are you can check an exact price with that shaft under the "enter custom specs" tab above the photo of the driver.

Whatbis The diference between this and The M2

Asked by: Juancha
Both the M1 and M2 drivers were constructed with the same materials. The “M” actually stands for Multi-Material, meaning that both drivers use a combination of metals to move weight around to get you the optimal amount of distance and forgiveness. Here’s where the big differences between the M1 and M2 come into play. In a nutshell, if you like to tinker with your shots and desire the ability to really dial in your game, the M1 gives you whole lot of adjustability. The M2 offers some of the same adjustability features, but TaylorMade designed this club to be as forgiving as possible, meaning you may not need the ability to tweak the club settings. In conclusion, the M1 is for more skilled players who like to control the flight of their ball. The M2 is also a great Driver, but it is more forgiving for those who cannot control their ball flight as well as others.

I have a swing speed of between 80-85. What flex shaft should I use? I am strong but do not swing hard. I hit the ball straight and am averaging 190 to 200yds with a 12 degree driver. Also, with the M1, which brand would suit me best?
