REVIEW: TaylorMade M3 & M4 Irons

Come in and try the TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons! Most players are do not prefer the feeling of a cast iron, however these are different. Opposed to a clicky feel, the TaylorMade M3 and M4 irons almost feel (and sound) like a one-piece iron. This change in sound and feel has a lot to do with the tungsten filled speed slots on the face and RIBCOR technology. RIBCOR technology gives the TaylorMade M3 and M4 a firmer face than the 2017 TaylorMade M1 and M2 iron. A firmer face translates to more ball speed all around the face, as well as tighter dispersion on miss hits. The feel and sound on these irons are not what excite me.

The DISTANCE on these irons are crazy! I can see why Dustin Johnson was carrying the 3-iron 300 yards in the TaylorMade promo video. I thought the Callaway Epic irons were the longest irons, but these go 15 yards further. I carry my current 7-iron (a forged blade) 160 yards, but I averaged 185 yards CARRY with the TaylorMade M3 iron with 195 as my longest shot.

As far as performance, the M3 and M4 irons are similar, but the M4 is longer. The difference is appearance, and the distance gain in the M4 iron. Players that need help with alignment should go with the M4 due to the amount of offset they have. You might not believe this, but the TaylorMade M3 irons have the same amount of offset as the TaylorMade P770 irons.

I highly recommend the TaylorMade M3 irons for BETTER players that want to increase distance, but want a slimmer looking iron with LOW offset. As mentioned, the M3 offset is almost the SAME as the P-770 irons! The player-friendly TaylorMade M4 irons are made for players that want more distance and need the extra help aligning their shots to the target line. Overall, I am impressed with the distance that these irons provide. I am looking forward to see if more customers fit into these TaylorMade irons or the new Callaway Rogue irons.
