TaylorMade M2 Irons Review

The TaylorMade M2 irons are the epitome of a super game improvement iron.  Very big, tons of offset, very long, and forgiving.


Despite the added forgiveness that the face slots are supposed to give the PSi and RSi irons, TaylorMade’s recent offerings in those lines have been geared more towards average and better players.  The TaylorMade M2 iron is the iron that the high handicap golfer has been waiting for.  It’s very long, very big, and will likely be popular among those with handicaps north of 20.

If you’re a very high handicap player looking for an iron that will make you feel comfortable at address, the TaylorMade M2 is probably it.  Irons don’t get much bigger.  The top line is thick, there’s a ton of offset, and the blade is very long from heel to toe.  It’s about as big as it can be without turning into a hybrid.

In the bag the M2 is a dead ringer for the old Burner irons.

Sound & Feel

In keeping with most of the other M2 clubs, the M2 irons are hard and loud at impact.  There is nothing soft or buttery about the feel.  These are distance irons and they definitely feel like the hard, unyielding piece of metal slamming into the ball.  As you would expect from a SGI iron, the feedback is minimal.

The TaylorMade M2 irons are going to win any beauty pageants, but players who need more distance will probably love them anyway.  These irons are very long.  Is that due to lofts that are very strong?  Absolutely.  On TaylorMade’s product page, they try to “debunk” that, but, frankly, their “explanation” is insulting.  And more importantly, no one cares.  The guy who is buying this iron just wants to hit a club that’s stamped “7” further than his buddy’s “7”.  And these irons are pretty good at that.

With this much offset, the M2 also launch the ball high with a penchant for going left.  Again, neither of these things are a concern for the high handicapper, in fact, they’re positives.  The better player is going to be pulling shots into the trees all day, but the slicer can benefit from the extra time to square the face.

Ultimately, the TaylorMade M2 irons weren’t made for me, but I think they will be effective for their target audience.  If you’re not concerned about the look or feel of the club but want lots of distance and forgiveness, the M2 is worth checking out.

    Would you recommend the M2 or the Vapor Fly irons in a head to head for an average golfer?? (Stuck between the 2, the numbers were fairly close for me… but that’s on a monitor and not outdoors)

    Hi Matt,

    I am getting ready to purchase a new set of irons. I have it down to either the M2 or the M2 Tour set. I am having a difficult time deciding if the little bit of extra money is worth it to “upgrade” to the M2 Tours. Do you have experience with the difference between both clubs?
    I am 6’4″, 215lbs, generally shoot anywhere from 85-92, athletic build, so naturally I am looking to go with stiff shafts but I am still puzzled as to what the advantages/disadvantages between the two are.

    Can you help? Thanks!
