There is a myriad of irons to pick from, but how can you choose which iron to buy? In this article, I’ll review Taylormade M4 irons. Taylormade M4 irons, and sharing my honest opinions after trying the irons.
Short story These irons were a replacement for the M2 series, and are definitely improvements (in my personal opinion). I’ve played with a variety of irons over the last couple of weeks, and the M4 is on the leading line for distance. I have also found them to be extremely accommodating on hits that are off-center which could be beneficial to many middle to high handicappers. If you’re a lower handicapper with an increased swing speed, I may consider using the M3 irons. However, for most of the people that read this article, I’d strongly suggest the irons of M4.

Taylormade M4 Irons Review
Taylormade M4 First Impressions
I was quite intrigued to try these irons as I was not very fond of the earlier M2 irons. I didn’t really dislike them or anything similar, however, I prefer other models more. The M4 featured some brand innovations and features that were new and what did I think of the M4?
In terms of appearance and feel, they appeared like the M2 in terms of looks and feel. The sound of the impact was not always the greatest I would say. It had the appearance of more of an acoustic hollow however, it didn’t appear to have caused any issues for performance.
Overall, initial impressions weren’t all that bad but the thing that’s most important is the way they performed…
How Did They Perform?
The first major difference I observed in comparison to the M2 was the angle of launch for the ball. It launched higher than it had before (for any reason) and it was an enormous boost in confidence.
If you launch at a higher angle, the ball is higher in the air and thus provides greater distance. It’s not a big difference however I’d rather have one or two yards anytime during the course of the day.
What I think contributed to the distance was that they were more tolerant of off-center hits. The majority of mid-to higher handicap players have a tough hitting the sweet spot, which can result in huge hooks, large slices, and huge distance losses. Therefore, I believe that with a larger face that the sweet spot gets larger, and this can result in more distance when you hit contact that is too high or low, to the left or right.
Overall, due to having more distance and flexibility, I am very content with the performance of the M4 irons.
Who Are They For/Not For?
I’d say that these clubs are beneficial to anyone with a mid-to-high handicap player who’s willing to pay on these clubs (they aren’t inexpensive). They’re ideal for people like me with slower swing speeds.
If you’re playing at a lower handicap with a higher swing speed, I’d suggest M3 irons. They’ll probably yield more results in terms of distance as well as being able to move the ball around. The Taylormade M4 provides superior forgiveness and offset. Beginners who practice and track their game using a golf simulator would love it.
M4 Iron Pros
- One of the longest irons I’ve hit to date.
- The bigger face adds the illusion of forgiveness.
M4 Iron Cons
- They’re a pricey club.
- Sometimes, it feels somewhat hollow when struck.
My Final Thoughts
Overall, I was very pleased with the clubs. I’m a middle handicap golfer, with a slow swing speed. These clubs allowed me to play for a long distance. They also helped to a great extent with off-center hits. If you’re like me I’d suggest you check these clubs out.
They’re a bit expensive for a lot of people, but if you’re a person who plays a lot of golf, it’s worth investing in an elite set of irons In my opinion, these might be the perfect option for you.
