Better look, better feel, better performance. TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons have improved over their predecessors

By Jon Levy

TaylorMade M3 & M4 ironsGOLFTEC’s visit to the TaylorMade Kingdom to review the TaylorMade M3 and M4 driver & woods included a sneak peek at replacements for the M1 and M2 irons: TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons.

In the video below, I visit with TaylorMade Senior Director of Product Design, Tomo Bystedt, to discuss these new designs which feature a markedly improved feel, sound and aesthetics over their predecessors. But RIBCOR is the main story with TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons, and this off-center-hit-enhancing technology surely makes these clubs worth a look for any golfer looking for distance-enhancing and forgiving irons in 2018.

Be sure to also check out the full breakdown of features and benefits of TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons, which hit shelves Feb. 16 starting at $999 and $899, respectively, and are available for purchase at your local GOLFTEC.
