For average and even some better players, the days of 2-, 3-, and 4-irons are just about over, and it’s likely that the 5-iron isn’t too far behind. So it’s time to add some hybrids to your bag, and the M4 is one of the easiest-to-hit models you’ll find, producing fast ball speed, loads of forgiveness and lots of distance. For players who struggle to gain confidence over a hybrid, the larger footprint and low-profile design should work exceptionally well from both the fairway and the tee. Improved look, sound and feel over the previous M2 model are a definite bonus.


“Very forgiving, higher-launching product that would help any player trying to prevent pushes and fades. Top-end ball speeds yield big-time distance from the tee, while the sole is well-designed for versatility from a variety of lies.”
