Today, we’re going to be reviewing the Taylormade M4 and I’ll be sharing my honest thoughts after testing out this golf hybrid. My go-to club over the past few seasons has been my hybrid (and I’ve tested out quite a few so far), so that being said, how did this one stack up to the rest?
Long story short, I had really good results with my slower swing speed using the M4 hybrid. I found it a lot easier to hit than other hybrids out there and it was an awesome club to get out of bad situations. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the previous M1 and M2 hybrids, but the new and improved M4 sounded and felt a lot better to me. There was more forgiveness in the club and I had a bit more distance with it (compared to the M3). A couple of things I noticed were there weren’t any adjustments on the club and it wasn’t the best in terms of workability (fade/draw). I’d say if you’re a low handicap player you’d benefit more from the M3 hybrid, but for me and my swing, the M3 was great and I’d recommend.
If that’s all the info you were looking for then great. But if you want a more detailed review of this hybrid, be sure to watch the full video or blog post below!
Taylormade M4 Hybrid Review
Taylormade M4 First Impressions
The M4 is the new and improved version of the M2 and is more forgiving than before. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the previous M series, but Taylormade has definitely done some work with the new ones.
It apparently has a deeper center of gravity and that’s to help give a higher launch angle. It also has a longer speed pocket which is also supposed to help increase ball speed.
The head of the previous M2 was white and it’s now grey, which I did like a lot more and found it easier to align properly.
The head is a bit bigger than the M3 and it’s almost like hitting a smaller fairway wood, which a lot of average golfers will like. The M3 is more like hitting your long iron and is designed more for your low handicap player. It’ll also be easier to work the ball around.
How Did The Hybrid Perform
Since I have a slower swing speed (compared to the pros), I had better results with the M4 hybrid. You’d probably be the opposite if you have a faster swing.
The distance and also the accuracy was really good as well (just as good as any other hybrid) and I found it really easy to hit, which was awesome.
Overall, the M4 performed really well for me and my swing. Here’s a demo video:
Who Is It Best For/Not For
In my opinion, these 2 clubs are for different things…
The M4 is your go-to club for getting out of bad situations and would probably benefit mid to high handicaps more.
The M3 is your precision club and is designed for accuracy, which low handicaps would probably like more.
- It sounded and felt better than the previous M2.
- I had more distance with the M4 (compared to the M3).
- I found it really easy to hit and it was consistent.
- It was an awesome club to get out of bad spots.
- There aren’t any adjustments.
- It’s not the best for working the ball around (draw/fade).
- Low handicaps would probably like the M3 more.
- Performance score: 10
- Price score: 7
- Durability score: 10
- Personal score: 9
My Final Thoughts
Overall, I really liked the M4 (more than most hybrids and the M3) and the performance was just as good as any other club out there.
If you’re a mid to high handicap with a slower swing speed (like myself) I’d definitely consider picking up the M4. That’s why I’d give it a thumbs up and recommend it.
