What’s At The Core of TaylorMade M3 and M4 Irons?

m3 and m4 irons

As we’ve seen with the TaylorMade M3 and M4 drivers, accuracy and distance are the big focuses for the latest from TaylorMade. The M3 and M4 irons use new and redefined features to achieve their goal of “Straight Distance.”

Our review reveals what’s new and improved in these new irons.

TaylorMade M3 and M4 Irons

M4 Irons

The TaylorMade M4 irons are the more forgiving of the 2 new irons, akin to the popular M2 irons. They boast new technology and improve on familiar features, making them straighter and longer. Let’s start by introducing you to what’s new, Ribcor technology.

Ribcor technology consists of 2 ribs on the heel and toe of the club. They provide added structure and strength to the club head. The weight of the ribs increases the MOI (aka forgiveness) 24% over the ’17 M2 irons. They also support the face and topline which reduces energy loss on mishits. Therefore, shots hit across the whole face gain distance.

Pairing with Ribcor to deliver faster ball speeds are face slots and a redesigned Speed Pocket on the 4-7 irons. Face slots and the Speed Pocket let the face flex more at impact, transferring energy to the golf ball like a trampoline.

A larger, stiffer 3-D badge on the back of the M4 irons improves the sound and feel of the irons.

M3 Irons

The TaylorMade M3 irons follow in the footsteps of the M1 irons, a compact iron that provides forgiveness. The M3 irons take the category to the next level with the following features.

Like the M4 irons, the M3 irons have Ribcor technology delivering more forgiveness and distance on shots hit all over the face. a 15-gram weight in the toe also adds to the club’s forgiveness.

A more workable sole on the M3 adds increased shot control to its arsenal. A thinner topline than the M1 irons and a straighter leading edge give the M3 irons a clean, sharp look.

Finally, the 3-7 irons have face slots, Speed Pockets, and Inverted Cone Technology to deliver the club’s accuracy and distance.
