Q & A
The most obvious change in TaylorMade’s new M2 rescues is the implementation of the traditional black and white M family crown into the design. But that’s far from the only change, as the performance benefits of these rescue clubs have been significantly improved as well. At the top of the list is a modified Speed Pocket, which has been made both longer and more flexible to create more ball speed on all shots and improve forgiveness on shots struck low on the face. Another innovation is a new two-tiered sole design that improves turf interaction from any lie condition. Additionally, the new sole works with a shorter fluted hosel to improve feel and acoustics at impact, which are a part of TaylorMade’s new Geocoustic Technology approach. In terms of ball flight, players can expect high launch conditions from the M2 rescues, as well as a natural draw bias. The TaylorMade M2 rescues come in lofts of 19, 22, 25, and 28 degrees, and the stock shaft will be the TaylorMade REAX. Players who choose stiff flex shafts will get the REAX 75, while players in regular and senior flexes will get the REAX 65 and REAX 55, respectively.

Players of all ability levels. M2 rescues are a great choice to replace long irons for any golfer, as they deliver impressive distance, effortless launch, and ample forgiveness on mis-hits. They’re also a great option for players who struggle to square the clubface or fight a slice thanks to a natural draw bias. Additionally, the new sole design improves playability from the rough or poor lies. All said, these are rescues that will fit the needs of a wide array of golfers.
