Pushing engineering boundaries like never before, speed injected twist face takes performance to unsurpassed levels with the next generation of M technology.
TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in product innovation, technology and performance and makers of the #1 Driver in Golf for seventeen consecutive years, announced today the next generation of the globally successful line of its M metalwoods, highlighted by the all-new M5 & M6 drivers, fairways and hybrids.
SPEED INJECTED TWIST FACE – A NEW TWIST ON TWIST FACE
In 2018, TaylorMade engineers developed a new path to performance with Twist Face technology. To counteract the high-toe miss (a hook), the driver face was modified open (loft increased & face opened) on the high-toe to help straighten ball flight. Similarly, to counteract the low-heel miss (a slice) the driver face was modified closed to de-loft and close the face in the low heel area.
In 2019, TaylorMade has taken Twist Face to the next level of performance with the introduction of Injected Twist Face technology, exposing the false narrative that speed limits have been reached in a metalwood.
There are four key features to the design of Speed Injected Twist Face that allow TaylorMade to maximise ball speed, working in unison to allow every M5 & M6 driver to be precision-tuned with a new, rigorous process to maximise speed to the allowable limit.
- Ultra-thin Titanium face with redesigned Inverted Cone Technology (ICT)
- Re-engineered, more-flexible Hammerhead 2.0 slot
- Internal support foam with variable amounts of injected resin
- A proprietary algorithm to tune each head
Every M5 & M6 driver head is inspected, measured, and tuned for maximum speed and to ensure conformity; a process truly unmatched in the golf industry. Whereas current drivers have a level of variation from one to the next, TaylorMade’s new engineering and development processes effectively deliver a level of precision that ensures every golfer gets a hot and fast driver head.
The drivers have been designed with a thinner, more flexible face, in fact, initially designed above the legal limit before going through the tuning process, a process in which resin is injected to ensure maximum speed for each head. The injection process utilises two new tuning ports on the face of the driver (both M5 & M6 models) and a proprietary algorithm to ensure the appropriate amount of resin is used, systematically dialling in the speed for each driver face.
A significant benefit of the thinner, faster face design is that it provides the M5 and M6 drivers with faster off-centre COR, effectively increasing forgiveness. The new face design is optimised with up to a 20% reduction in thickness that results in a 66% larger sweet spot in the M5 drivers over the M3 and more than 100% larger than the original M1 in 2015.
Taylormade's M Metalwoods are available for preorder on January 14 and at retail on February 15, 2019 at an RRP of £449-£499.
