Playability

A perfect driver replacement with plenty of carry and roll off the tee; very effective from the fairway and all kinds of trouble; repeatable shot shape and medium-high trajectory.

“So much fun to play: easy to hit, class-leading distance and a firm, springy feel.”

Distance

Players with higher swing speeds get superior yardage—the 3-wood is as long as some drivers; exceptional length on mis-hits.

Cons

Some guys find the two-tone design distracting; other players prefer more workability and feedback on off-center hits; not the easiest to swing through thick rough.

Bottom Line

The new M2 is one of the best sticks in the test. Stronger players find powerful distance combined with all the accuracy they need. A great choice to replace the driver on tight holes, and they work hard to hunt your target from a variety of lies.
