GEAR | WHAT’S NEW 29 NEW GEAR THE LATEST & GREATEST FROM THE BIGGEST BRANDS TAYLORMADE M5 IRONS OPTIMISED FOR PLAYABILITY AND FORGIVENESS, The 2019 M5 Irons offer players an outstanding combination of distance, accuracy and feel in a refined and aesthetically 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. The new Speed Pocket design (4-7 irons) uses a flexible thru-slot that results in enhanced ball speeds for more forgiveness across the face, especially on shots struck low on the face. 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. The aforementioned HYBRAR compression damper effectively filters unwanted face vibrations for more solid feel on all shots. The M5’s sole design now includes a leading-edge chamfer for a cleaner entry into the turf for crisp ball striking with preferred turf interaction. In addition to SPEED BRIDGE and the redesigned Speed Pocket, the M5 irons utilise a variety of proven TaylorMade technologies. An off-centre Inverted Cone Technology (ICT) face design optimises ball speed across the face. 360° Undercuts with stiffening topline ribs promote face flexibility and ball speed while maintaining sound and feel. And the Fluted Hosel 2.0 promotes lower and deeper CG for improved launch characteristics. > SHOP THE BIGGEST RANGE | BEST ADVICE | LOWEST PRICE | SHOP 24/7 OR LOCATE A STORE | drummondgolf.com.au M5 has 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.
