TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in product innovation and technology, have announced the fourth and most innovative generation of its high-performance line of M series irons. Featuring the company’s new revolutionary SPEED BRIDGE™ technology, the all-new M5 & M6 irons have been engineered to further increase distance and enhance sound and feel.
SPEED BRIDGE – A Breakthrough in Iron Engineering
Completely new for 2019, M5 & M6 irons with SPEED BRIDGE incorporate a high strength, mass-efficient structural beam spanning across the cavity back of the iron to connect the topline with the back bar of the iron. By connecting these specific points, TaylorMade has created a significant technological breakthrough in game improvement iron design.
SPEED BRIDGE uses minimal mass to stabilise the iron by supporting the topline and upper face area at the exact location that vibrates at impact. The increased rigidity delivers improved sound and feel with increased ball speed from a more flexible Speed Pocket™.
Redesigned Speed Pocket
Speed Pocket technology significantly enhances face flexibility and generates optimal spin at impact, thus maximising ball speed and carry distance; more specifically low on the clubface – where ball speed protection matters most.
The SPEED BRIDGE and Speed Pocket work together to systematically improve how the iron face performs, generating faster ball speeds compared to the 2018 M3 and M4 irons.
HYBRAR Compression Damper
In both the M5 & M6 irons, TaylorMade engineers have implemented a new HYBRAR damping system and multi-material badges to control and minimise vibration for a soft and solid feel. The ABS/aluminum structure combined with viscoelastic adhesive serves to further improve sound and feel at impact.
The 2019 M6 iron is TaylorMade’s newest and most advanced game improvement iron to date. The M6 irons feature technologies designed to offer players an outstanding combination of distance, accuracy and solid feel in a forgiving, confidence-inspiring shape that’s easy to hit.
Packed with industry leading game improvement technologies, the M6 iron performance has been taken to the next level with the addition of SPEED BRIDGE in the 4-PW.
“At TaylorMade, we have always strived to push the performance envelope to give players maximum distance and forgiveness in our game improvement irons. Our new SPEED BRIDGE technology allows us to do exactly that while improving sound and feel at the same time. Distance has never felt as good as it does with the M6 irons.”
Matt Bovee, Senior Manager, Product Creation
In addition to SPEED BRIDGE, the M6 iron houses several additional performance enhancing technologies.
An extremely low and deep centre of gravity (CG) is achieved through design optimisation and proven technologies. The low CG design produces an efficient energy transfer at impact with a high launching, penetrating ball flight, even for mis-hits low on the face.
The M6 iron has an ultra-thin face design with TaylorMade’s patented Inverted Cone Technology (ICT). The ultra-thin face allows the iron to be flexible and fast. Simply put, the ICT gives golfers a larger and more accurate sweet spot.
The combination of the technologies used in the creation of the M6 irons gives golfers the best of both worlds – an iron with game changing distance and a pleasing soft, solid feel at impact.
All new set wedges specifically designed for the mid to high handicap golfer have been added to the M6 iron set for enhanced playability around the greens.
Specifications, Pricing & Availability
Available for pre-order on January 14 and at retail beginning February 15 2019, the M6 irons 7 club set RRP (£849 steel £999 graphite), Available in 4-9iron, PW, SW & LW.
Optimised for playability and forgiveness, the 2019 M5 Irons offer players an outstanding combination of distance, accuracy and feel in a refined and pleasing shape designed for players preferring a more traditional look.
Taking M iron performance to the next level, the M5 irons utilise multi-material construction with SPEED BRIDGE technology, allowing for the integration of the most flexible thru-slot Speed Pocket in a TaylorMade game-improvement iron to date. Additionally, tungsten weighting has been added (4-7 irons) to lower the CG, increase launch and deliver additional forgiveness.
A cavity back design with deep undercut (4-PW) results in exceptional feel and enhanced shot-making ability. While the HYBRAR compression damper effectively filters unwanted face vibrations for a more solid feel on all shots.
The M5 irons have been designed for mid handicap players seeking performance, but will also appeal to better players with a more discerning eye seeking a clean, compact appearance at address.
The technologies used in the production of the M5 irons work in harmony to deliver distance, peak height and forgiveness to provide favourable launch to a wide range of players.
