TaylorMade Men's M1 430 Driver


TaylorMade Men's M1 430 Driver

Performance For Every Swing

The M1 430 features a more compact 430cc profile compared to the 460cc M1, but like its counterpart, the 430 was designed to combine incredible distance and feel with customization options that allow recreational golfers to set up their drivers with the same precision that Tour players seek when working directly with TaylorMade’s professional fitters. The key component in the M1 430 is the lightweight crown, which allows additional weight to be utilized on the bottom of the club to achieve preferred trajectory and ball flight. The M1 430 comes at a stock length of 45.5 inches and is available in lofts of 8.5, 9.5, and 10.5 (right-handed only). Three unique stock shafts are offered to address ball-flight preferences, and nearly a dozen premium shafts are available at no upcharge.

Ideal For:

Golfers of all ability levels, although its more compact look probably will appeal most to more accomplished players. The 430 is generally regarded to be slightly less forgiving than the 460cc version of the M1. That said, the numerous customization options of the 430 can benefit just about anyone. If you want to eliminate a hook or slice, need to hit the ball lower or higher, or want to bring your spin numbers down, M1 430 will offer a setting to help you accomplish those goals. A commitment to experimenting with different settings is a must to get optimal performance, but this is a driver than truly can be personalized.

TGW Customer Feedback on the TaylorMade M1 and M2 drivers

Chris Schram of TGW talks with Mike, a TGW customer, about the TaylorMade M1 and M2 Drivers.

Multi-Material Construction

The M1 features an ultra-thin, ultra-light, and high-strength crown. The weight saved in the crown’s construction enabled the CG (center of gravity) to be moved lower for faster ball speeds and also created enhanced moveable weight adjustability to help golfers achieve the ball flight and trajectory they desire.

T-Track System

Two different track systems exist on the bottom of the M1. The front track, which runs parallel to the clubface, features a 15-gram moveable weight that allows golfers to achieve a neutral, draw, or fade bias. The back track, which runs perpendicular to the clubface, features a 10-gram adjustable weight that allows players to generate low, medium, or high launch and spin conditions. Additionally, by moving the back track’s weight all the way back, forgiveness is enhanced as the club’s inertia is increased.

Adjustable Loft Sleeve

Twelve different settings and 4 degrees of adjustability (+/- 2° degrees of loft), enable golfers to produce their desired loft, lie, and face angle, allowing them to maximize performance and the look of their driver at address.

What They're Saying...

“M1 has been absolutely phenomenal for us. There’s a lot of settings in this head that can really allow you to just dial it in for your needs.”

Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade Senior Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods

What Players Like You Are Saying...

“The M1 430 would be my preference (because of) the customization, the smaller head, and the feel, for me, which is a big thing. The M1 430 had a really muted sound, which is my personal preference. This launched a little bit lower and a little bit less spin, which I like.”
