Innovative Fairway Wood and Driver Hit the Sweet Spot: TaylorMade M6 Fairway Wood

The M6 Fairway is the latest series of fairway clubs from respected club designer TaylorMade. They feature Twist Face, an innovative technology never before seen in fairway clubs. The face of the club has a specialized contour that reduces sidespin on the ball, allowing shots to fly farther and straighter. The technology adds loft to the high toe and reduces loft in the low heel of the clubface, minimizing the severity of mishits and maximizing performance. The shaft of the club is available in four different degrees of stiffness and is made out of premium carbon fiber to keep it lightweight and increase swing velocity. The lightweight design combined with the curvature of the clubface make the M6 Fairway one of the most forgiving and useful clubs in any golf bag, making it a perfect fit for both tour players and high-handicappers. The M6 Fairway is offered in a number of variations as well, from the signature Rocket 3 to a 9-wood. This powerful wood provided us maximum distance with an enhanced feel that helped straighten mishits for straighter, more accurate shots.

  • Innovative Twist Face technology
  • Lightweight carbon fiber shaft
  • Deep clubface with a large carbon crown
  • Low center of mass, increasing swing velocity
  • Many variations of the club

Innovative Fairway Wood and Driver Hit the Sweet Spot: TaylorMade M6 Driver

TaylorMade golf clubs are known for superior performance, and the new M6 driver is no exception. With a number of new features, the M6 series of drivers were created to maximize the distance of every tee shot. An extra 46 grams of carbon weight have been added low down on the back of the club to move the center of gravity and provide more inertia in every swing. Corrective Twist Face technology makes it possible to hit straighter shots that fly farther even on an imprecise hit. Mishits toward the heel and toe flex similarly to center hits, which is a great benefit for amateur players. Plus, each individual driver head uses TaylorMade’s Speed Injected technology that incorporates a special tuning resin to help blast golf balls as quickly down the course as possible. The M6 driver also features a dual feel grip, a new glare-reducing matte black club head, and multiple lightweight shaft options with flex ratings that range from extra-stiff to senior. The club is available in three different variations of loft, as well as the draw-biased M6 D-type. The M6 has a great sweet spot in the middle of the club face, making it feel impossible to fault. The ball flew straight down the middle of the fairway so incredibly fast off the face, it made us wonder if it was over the legal limit. TJ’s reviewer felt this was probably the best driver he’d ever played with.

  • Speed Injected Twist Face technology to maximize ball speed
  • Various lightweight shaft options
  • Matte black club head to improve optics on the course
  • TaylorMade Inertia Generator technology
  • Aerodynamic design
