Tech

The Twist Face: reduce side spin and deliver straighter shots

Twist face design is the result from taylormade research by looking at data of most-common miss-hits from golfer the data shows “low-heel or high-toe shots” doing by most of golfer

As a result, Twist Face provides more loft in the high-toe and less loft in the low-heel to produce more consistent spin where golfers commonly mishit

Both the TaylorMade M3 and M4 drivers have Twist Face technology, where the high toe has been ‘twisted’ open and the low heel closed with less loft to help correct face angles for golfers biggest misses.

Hammerhead slot: deliver maximum ball speed

The combination of Hammerhead slot with Twist Face and Inverted Cone technology deliver maximum ball speed across a larger area of the face.

By dividing the Speed Pocket into zones, TaylorMade was able to increase its overall length by 22% – from 82mm to 100mm.

Hammerhead slot allowed for the creation of a larger flexible centre zone to increase ball speed on low face impacts and drop unwanted backspin.

engineers have decreased the thickness and weight allowing for a more flexible face resulting in a larger sweet spot

Y-Track for ultimate adjustability

Y-Track adjustability system allows all 22g (two 11g weights) of mass to be used for both the benefit of shot bias control, as well as front to back CG adjustment. Simple and intuitive system to move weight and personalize ball flight for draw/fade/high/low

The Y-Track gives more precise CG adjustability than ever with more than 1,000 unique set-up positions

The back Y-portion provides forgiving draw and fade options. Splitting the weights provides the ultimate in forgiveness

Composite crown

M3 driver crown is created using five layers of carbon fibre (down from seven on the M1) the thinnest, strongest and lightest composite crown ever made on a TaylorMade driver. it helps absorb vibration improving sound and frees up every last gram of inefficient weight.

Taylormade M3 driver: Looks

M3 use   a new silver colour which replaces the white from both the 2016 and 2017 version the M1 drivers to make sure you can see the difference between the old and new driver.

Twist Face is barely visible at address,  There are only flashes of red, blue and white, keeping a classy all round look to the driver.

The Y-Track, while offering a heap of options, does not appear too cluttered on the sole.

The design of Taylormade M3 diver definitely help to inspire confidence

M3 driver Sound and feel

Sound and feel often one of the most important factors for a golfer when purchasing a new driver. You’ll be glad to hear that M3 driver both the sound and feel off the face is the best on the market. The low dull thud it provides at impact sounds great and feels solid. Even on off-centre strikes the driver retains much of this. A firmer, slightly louder feel compared to the M1

Taylormade M3 driver Performance

The new twist face technology and hammerhead with big improvement in Y Track custom adjustability system make M3 become unbeatable

Compare to M1 with a 9.5 degree neutral setting, Hammerhead technology in M3 is really works to give an extra ball speed that result in equating to a few yards in extra distance

when it comes to Twist Face it’s very hard to definitively say how much impact it has on those high toe and low heel shots. Hitting exactly the same shot with a traditional face and then the M3 is very difficult, which makes the test almost impossible.

Y-Track is a big improvement compared to T track, allowing for a drastic improvement in adjustability.

Two 11g weights housed in a single track – compared to two tracks on the M1 – allowed you to alter launch and spin dramatically. There is no other driver that offer adjustability like M3

Conclusion

While we cannot definitively say Twist Face does exactly what it is trumpeted to do, we believe over time it will improve dispersion.

The new M3 Driver improves on the adjustability of the M1 Driver by offering a unified and seamless Y-Track weight system with revolutionary Twist Face technology paired with a Hammerhead slot system to not only maximize the sweet spot and forgiveness of the driver but also offer almost unlimited adjustability that can be tailored to each player’s unique strengths to get the most out of every drive. All of these advancements result in longer and more accurate drives than ever before.

The TaylorMade M3 Driver is truly an amazing club that is perfect for the low to mid handicap golfer looking to improve their performance on the course.
