Taylormade M4 Driver

M Performance Parts can be fitted to all M4 models. These include the following: carbon fibre diffuser, a carbon fibre spoiler (F82 Only) (a flow through rear spoiler was also offered by BMW), a carbon fibre bumper winglet, a splitter, carbon fibre grills, carbon fibre engine cover, carbon fibre gear shifter, carbon fibre gear surround, carbon fibre and Alcantara handbrake, carbon fibre and Alcantara armrest, M Performance carbon fibre door sills, decals and black side skirts.The convertible variant of the M4 was announced along with its coupe sibling, also internally known as F82 or F83 M4. It shares almost everything with the coupé version, but weighs more due to its folding metal roof. The convertible weighs 1,750 kg (3,858 lb) (manual), 1,691 kg (3,728 lb) (M-DCT). The three-piece retractable hardtop folds in 20 seconds. The only significant difference between the two is the weight due to its retractable hardtop. Like its hardtop counterpart, the F83 M4 uses carbon fibre reinforced plastic to lighten and stiffen the car. After winning the 2016 season, BMW once again released a DTM Champion Edition of the M4. The M4 DTM Champion Edition uses the engine from the M4 GTS with 368 kW (500 PS; 493 hp) 600 N⋅m (443 lb⋅ft) and water injection. All performance data are identical to those of the GTS. It is limited to 200 units and is only available in white in keeping with the DTM car. The visual difference to the GTS lies in the smaller spoiler, less aggressive front splitter, the addition of canards on the front bumper as well as the omission of the orange design elements. At the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show, head of BMW’s M division Frank Van Meel announced that the CSL nameplate would be making a return, replacing the GTS in the performance model monikers. On May 4 of 2022, BMW announced that the M4 CSL would debut at the 2022 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Changes include significant weight reduction of around 200 lb (91 kg) (hence the CSL name, which stands for Competition Sport Light), a large front carbon fiber front splitter, a ducktail rear spoiler, more horsepower, 543 hp (551 PS; 405 kW). Fast forward to May 2022, BMW M revealed the G82 M4 CSL. The latest M4 is now lighter and more powerful than its standard M4 counterpart. Only 1,000 units will be made.

The BMW M4 is a high-performance version of the BMW 4 Series coupes and convertibles developed by BMW’s motorsport division, BMW M, and marketed since 2014. The M4 features Active Sound, live amplification of the engine’s natural sound inducted into the passenger cabin via speakers in the car. BMW claims this technology has been used so that the well insulated cabin can reduce road/wind noise but still provide the driver with the sporty sound of the M powered engine. There are no artificial sound or any pre-recorded track in the system. This system was first implemented in the M5 (F10). The M4 GTS is powered by the same 2,979 cc (3.0 L; 181.8 cu in) twin-turbocharged straight-six engine as in the standard M4, but the power output has been raised by 51 kW (69 PS; 68 hp) to 368 kW (500 PS; 493 hp) at 6,250 rpm and 600 N⋅m (443 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm largely due to a nozzle water injection system that is the first to be used on a production automobile in almost twenty years. In addition to the increased engine power, the M4 GTS is 27 kg (60 lb) lighter than the standard M4 Coupé with the DCT transmission, so the weight now stands at 1,585 kg (3,494 lb). The M4 GTS features new OLED taillights (a BMW first), a stripped and weight-reduced interior with a full roll cage (half roll cage for North American markets), fiberglass cabin to trunk divider, removed soundproofing material, titanium exhaust system, a manually-adjusted three-way suspension by KW suspensions, and multi-way adjustable carbon fiber splitter and wing that can add up to 63 pounds front and 210 pounds rear downforce at 186 mph.

Is the M6 better than the M4?
“Compared to the M4’s the Taylormade M6 irons felt more stable on off-center strikes.” It felt like the Taylormade M6 irons had better stability on pretty much every type of contact. They sport the “Speed Bridge” which helps brace the head from crown to sole.
This came in 2018 after it was initially released in 2016 for the BMW M3. This was limited to 300 units worldwide and celebrated 30 years of M3 convertible and M4 convertible driving. These cars came in Macao Blue, Mandarin II Uni and unique for the UK market a matte finished Frozen Dark Grey and the star-spoke 20-inch wheels came in bespoke Orbit Grey finish. Inside the finish came with two color option black and white and black and blue and these were fully extended leather. Also, door sills and carbon interior had the 30 Jahre etched in. There were no performance changes but the car was based on the M4 Competition. These cars did not come with the 360 camera system as one of the key options that was not offered.The BMW M4 GT3 is a racecar version of the G82 BMW M4, homologated under the FIA Group GT3 category, which also enables entry to SRO, IMSA and ADAC competition. It is a direct successor to the BMW M6 GT3, racing from the 2022 season. The M4 GT3 will use a race-prepped variant of the inline-six from the road car. BMW M Motorsport stretches the front to add much wider fenders, and more angular styling for the hood accentuates the inward slanted brows above the headlights. The exhaust exits just ahead of the passenger side front wheel, on the right side of the car. At the back, there are inlets on the sides of the wider fenders. A gooseneck-mounted spoiler and rear diffuser manage the airflow. The steering wheel can be used in racing simulators without modifications. Deliveries started in late 2021. Starting from the 2019 model year (production from 07/2018 onward) BMW removed the carbon fibre driveshaft so as to be able to fit an Otto Particulate Filter (OPF), necessary to comply with WLTP emissions regulations and this also meant that the M Performance Exhaust was no longer able to be offered on these cars by BMW. In October 2020, BMW released their collaboration with Kith, a lifestyle brand centered around fashion, for the G82 generation M4. The car has been named BMW M4 x KITH. Production was limited to only 150 units worldwide and they have a slight premium over the basic form 2021 BMW M4. Slight differences are noticed on the seats with a specific colouration with kith embossed multiple times on the headrest, creating a specific pattern. The carbon roof has the Kith logo. Exterior-wise the car is fully matte black, silver and white.The second iteration of the BMW M4 (codenamed G82) is largely based on the standard 4 Series (G22 generation), which was previewed by the BMW Concept 4. It is a high performance version of the standard G22 4 Series. Prototypes of the BMW M4 have been seen tested on the Nürburgring beside the G80 BMW M3. The first units were assembled in November 2020, with global deliveries starting in early 2021.

The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time is reduced to 3.8 seconds, while the top speed stands at 305 km/h (190 mph). The M4 GTS has, according to BMW, lapped the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife track in 7 minutes and 28 seconds, 24 seconds faster than the base M4 and 20 seconds faster than the M3 GTS. This equates to the same time as a Porsche Carrera GT.
The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition was first launched in 2014, following the victory of Marco Wittmann in the 2014 DTM season, in commemoration of the winning BMW M4 DTM racecar. The model is based on Wittmann’s 2014 M4 DTM in color. The 2014 DTM Champion Edition is limited to 23 units, Wittmann’s race number.In early 2017, BMW announced M4 CS in limited run of 3,000 units globally with 1,000 units being delivered to the United States. The M4 CS sits between the M4 Competition Package and the M4 GTS. The M4 CS utilizes the same engine as the standard M4 but gets a 9 hp boost from the M4 Competition Package, and generates 338 kW (460 PS; 453 hp) and 600 N⋅m (443 lb⋅ft) of torque. The M4 CS gets a total boost of 28 hp from its first generation (2014). The car features a light weight interior which trims 35 lb (16 kg) off the weight of the M4 Competition. This is done in part through the use of ”compacted natural fiber” interior door panels with fabric latch pulls as seen in the M4 GTS, light weight M sport seats, and the removal of the central arm rest.

In February 2016, BMW announced the M4 Competition Package. The M4 Competition Package increases power output by 14 kW (19 PS; 19 hp) to 331 kW (450 PS; 444 hp) and has a revised suspension for better handling. New springs, dampers and anti-roll bars complement the included Adaptive M Suspension. BMW also re-tuned the electronic differential and the Dynamic Stability Control to match the upgraded hardware. The interior remains largely unchanged, but Competition Package cars get new lightweight sport seats along with the M-striped woven seat belts. The exterior includes the M Sport exhaust with black chrome tailpipes and high gloss Shadow Line exterior trim. Gloss black trim is added to the kidney grille, side gills, and model badge on the trunk.As per its E92 predecessor, the roof of the coupe model is constructed from carbon fibre (except if the optional sunroof is fitted). Carbon fibre is also used for the bootlid and engine brace. For the first time in a M3/M4 model, an electric power steering unit is used. The steering system is specifically tuned for both the M3 and M4, however it has been criticised for lacking in feel. The 18 inches (460 mm) and 19 inches (480 mm) wheel options are available with lightweight forged alloy wheels being standard. The M compound brakes come standard (with blue brake calipers), while carbon ceramic brakes (with gold brake calipers) are available as an option.

This is the final edition BMW made for the M4 Limited to 750 units and 75 were sent to the UK. The new M4 Edition M Heritage is based on the existing M4 Coupe and engine was based on the M4 Competition. These came in three colours Laguna Seca Blue, Velvet Blue metallic and Imola red and were only in coupe variants. The changes to this car were in the interior where they came in three color schemes white and black, red and black and blue and black with the words M4 Heritage embossed on the seats, door sills and carbon trim.
On 24th November 2022, BMW revealed its all-new BMW 3.0 CSL with a more powerful 3.0-liter Inline-six cylinder engine. which generates a power of 412 kW (560 PS; 553 hp) and 550 N⋅m (406 lb⋅ft) of torque. and BMW is celebrating BMW M’s 50th Anniversary, so on the occasion of M’s 50 Anniversary, the new 3.0 CSL will be produced in only 50 units.For the Thailand market, the manual will be available in the standard M4 and automatic will be available in the M4 Competition they will be imported from Germany.

The more notable upgrades for the G82 M4 is a 35 kW (48 PS; 47 hp) increase over the previous M4, as well as adopting the twin-kidney grille from the 4 Series.
As part of the renumbering that splits the 3 Series coupé and convertible models into the 4 Series, the M4 replaced the BMW M3 coupé and convertible models. Upgrades over the standard BMW 4 Series include an upgraded engine, suspension, exhaust system, brakes and weight reduction measures including increased use of carbon fibre, such as on the roof of the car.M Performance Parts can be fitted to all models. These includes a wing, carbon fibre side skirts, an M Performance Exhaust system, canards, a carbon fibre splitter, a carbon fibre diffuser and rear ground effects. The M Performance currently released one set of design style that has been produced by many different factories. The G80 and G82 M3, M4 are the only G chassis M available with M performance design.

When did the M4 change?
The convertible version of the new M4 was introduced in May 2021. Like the standard new-generation BMW 4 Series Convertible, the M4 Convertible (internal designation G83) has a folding soft top.
On 25 September 2013, BMW released the technical specifications of the M4. It is powered by the S55B30 engine, which is developed and engineered by BMW M GmbH. This 3.0-litre inline-6 engine has been built specifically for the new M4/M3, having a redline of 7,600 rpm with the rev limiter actuated at 7,300 rpm. The engine uses two mono-scroll turbochargers with a peak boost pressure of 18.1 psi (1.2 bar). The power is rated at 317 kW (431 PS; 425 hp), however this is achieved not at a specific engine speed, but is instead rated throughout the range of 5,500–7,300 rpm. The engine’s torque is rated at 550 N⋅m (406 lbf⋅ft) throughout the range of 1,850–5,500. Two transmission choices are available, the 6-speed manual and the 7-speed M-DCT transmissions. The 7-speed M-DCT transmission accelerates the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds) and the 6-speed manual transmission from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds. The weight of the European specification M4 equipped with a manual transmission is 1,572 kg (3,466 lb) and with the M-DCT dual-clutch transmission, the car is some 40 kg (88 lb) heavier, losing some 80 kg (176 lb) as compared to the E92 M3.Because of its extra weight it accelerates slower, taking it 0.3 seconds longer to 100 km/h (62 mph); 4.6 seconds with the manual and 4.3 seconds with the M-DCT transmission. The dynamic differences between the two variants are marginally small.

Can you change weight on M4 driver?
TaylorMade aftermarket weights for the M4 driver. Available in 5 different weight options to customize ball flight and feel. Note: The factory TaylorMade weights are secured by Loctite adhesive requiring heat to remove properly without stripping the screw tip.
The convertible version of the new M4 was introduced in May 2021. Like the standard new-generation BMW 4 Series Convertible, the M4 Convertible (internal designation G83) has a folding soft top. It normally opens/closes in 18 seconds, at speeds up to 50 km/h (31 mph). The convertible is available as a Competition model with the M xDrive. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but with the optional M Driver’s Package, it can increase to 280 km/h (174 mph). As for acceleration on 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph), it is 3.6 seconds. For the North American market, only the manual transmission will be available in the standard M4 while the M4 Competition only is available with an automatic transmission. BMW introduced the M4 GTS concept in August 2015 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. In 2016, BMW introduced the production version of the car which was a track-focused version of the standard M4 coupé itself with a limited production run of 700 units.The BMW M4 GT4 is a competition version of the road car, sharing the 3.0 L turbocharged straight-six engine and 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Reuse of these elements of the road car, and of shared electronics systems including the TCS, are aimed at cost, maintenance, and driveability, with further race engineering reused from the GT3 version. Chassis are homologated under the SRO GT4 category, aimed at amateur drivers, with the engine trimmed to 317 kW (431 PS; 425 hp) in line with the Balance of Performance regulations. The car debuted at the 2017 24 Hours of Nürburgring.Other additional options as a retrofit were LCI rear lights and Big Brake Carbon Kit, M Performance Exhaust System which all could be bought and fitted by BMW. Det billigaste priset för TaylorMade M4 Driver just nu är 1 899 kr.

This allows for more flexibility, so the ball pops off the clubface with greater velocity. Adding more carbon fiber will also assist with adding clubhead speed so you can transfer more energy to the ball, making it go further.

This face design and all that weight in the back make it hard to work the ball as well. This driver may not suit you if you want to be hitting power draws and bending fades. It’s meant to reduce spin and protect against off-center hits.
The first is the CUP face technology that helps the face become more springy to launch balls off it. By wrapping the face around the front of the clubhead instead of attaching it as most other companies do, they change the properties of the face to be more forgiving.We can’t talk about forgiving drivers and not mention Callaway. Their latest release is a culmination of many technologies they have worked on throughout past drivers, like the Mavrik and the Epic.

PING is another name in golf that has contributed some very impressive drivers that excel in the forgiveness department. This new release also combines multiple technologies that PING has developed over the years.This is where opinions will differ because the look of this driver is considerable. It makes the ball seem small when you address it, hopefully filling you with confidence you can’t miss. The face is deeper than the M3, which is why it’s so forgiving, but it may take a few swings to get used to the size.

What does the M stand for on TaylorMade drivers?
The “M” actually stands for Multi-Material, meaning that both drivers use a combination of metals to move weight around to get you the optimal amount of distance and forgiveness. TaylorMade’s big highlight on both clubs is the 7-layer Carbon Composite Crown.
Take advantage of this technology because no other company is doing it, nor do they see the success that TaylorMade is seeing, so they must be on to something here!The face is also more prominent in the areas most golfers tend to miss. High on the toe and low on the heel usually result in poor drives, but this face adapts for those strikes and keeps your tee shot respectable.

Can you adjust the M4?
The M4 driver features an adjustable hosel, enabling golfers to alter their loft by 2 degrees of additional or less loft. Plus, adjustments impact the angle of the clubface. For example, strengthening the loft by 2 degrees can open your clubface up to 4 degrees.
A large tungsten weight at the back lowers the center of gravity to help with a higher launch angle. Getting your drives started on the right path is an issue many high-handicappers deal with. This driver is designed to improve that right out of the box.The exposed carbon crown is a massive improvement from the all-white drivers TM was pushing a few years ago. Having the white accent looks clean and crisp and helps you get a square clubface at address.

The hallmark feature here is the jailbreak technology that supports the face for high forgiveness and longer distance. Two stabilized titanium bars flank both sides of the sweet spot to make it larger. Missing the sweet spot on this driver is almost unnoticeable.
“Safety first,” I always say, and now that we know this driver will be generous with off-center hits, let’s talk about how it increases distance. Using what they call a “Hammerhead Slot” adds more flexibility to the face, which produces more bounce and launches your ball off the clubface.The carbon crown also helps you pick up a few mphs on your swing speed. Similar to the sole, they have reduced the weight and made the crown as thin as possible without risking stability. The result is a driver that feels great in your hands because all the weight is exactly where it needs to be.

Yes, the TaylorMade M4 is a forgiving driver. This attribute is credited to the large tungsten weight in the rear that lowers the center of gravity and opens up the sweet spot. Designers could do this because of the weight they saved in the sole with Geocoustic techniques and using carbon for the exoskeleton.
Clint became the Head Teaching Professional at one of Toronto’s busiest golf academies and was featured on Canada’s National Golf TV program, “Score Golf Canada,” twice. He now tests and reviews golf equipment and gets to enjoy the game he loves whenever he wants while helping people lower their scores.

But now, some real research is going into these, and the TaylorMade M4 driver benefits from all that hard work. This driver has a lot to like, but it’s not right for everyone.
The M4 has a few differences from the M5 and M6 drivers, but the most glaring is the clubface. M5 and M6 drivers are outfitted with an updated TwistFace technology that makes them as thin as legally possible. TaylorMade injects them with just enough special resin to make them legal by USGA standards but thin enough to increase the distance over the M4.The M6 has no movable weights and takes after the M4 with a lot of carbon integrated into the head. This allows for a large tungsten weight in the back, but the M6 has improved TwistFace technology.The M5 features movable weights similar to the M3 but in a T-track formation instead of the M3’s Y-track. This allows you to affect your spin rate and launch angle more. Once you have the most optimal setting for your swing, I advise you to leave it there and not get too involved with changing it all the time. The TaylorMade M4 driver adjustments are minimal, but many people prefer it this way.

You won’t get it here if you draw confidence from a loud booming sound from a well-struck tee shot. The sound is muted and is more like a persimmon driver sound of yesteryear. It sounds more like a 5-wood and not a large driver with a deep face.Mid-high handicappers will benefit most from the M4 TaylorMade driver. Its features cater to those who struggle with consistently hitting the sweet spot. I recommend this to mid-high handicappers who struggle with their tee shots. The deep face, lower center of gravity, and overall feel will help improve any golfer’s drives. The speed slot is also used on other drivers, most notably in Adams drivers that were used in long drive championships and earlier RocketBallz fairway woods by TaylorMade. This technology works well and makes a big difference in creating distance without changing your swing. The weight being saved was moved to a much larger tungsten insert. At 41 grams, it’s one of the largest in any driver. This provides an optimized center of gravity, improving your launch angle even on mis-hits. Mis-hits were barely noticeable and still flew relatively straight. This driver can help mid-high handicappers keep their ball in play to have more opportunities to hit greens in regulation. Starting a hole with a safe drive is a great way to fast-track your improvement and start lowering your scores.

Why was the TaylorMade M2 driver so good?
The main difference I noticed was the M2 was a lot more forgiving than the M1 and it’s designed more for the masses. I’m a mid handicap golfer and I didn’t feel like I was consistent enough with the M1 driver. The M2 was clearly better for me.
We all want forgiveness from the driver but don’t want to sacrifice a whole lot of feel. We still want to know where we made contact, which can sometimes be challenging with game-improvement drivers such as this one.

While testing the TaylorMade M4, there was a short learning curve as I got used to its size. On paper, it’s no bigger by volume than its competitors, but with such a large face, it feels much bigger. After a few swings, that size was an advantage.
Yes, TaylorMade M4 Drivers are good for beginners. Their large face helps beginners with their toughest task; making contact. TwistFace technology is a huge help in creating distance and keeping the ball flight straight. Due to the forgiveness of the large face, beginners can enjoy longer and straighter drives more often with an M4 than with other drivers meant for beginners. Check out the TaylorMade M4 driver reviews here.

A big advantage this driver has is the low-profile hosel setup. It’s much smaller than other companies use, making a great appearance when you address the ball.
TaylorMade is known for their skills in making a great driver. Many of the world’s top players make millions by shooting excellent scores with TaylorMade drivers, but how does that help the rest of the golfing populace like you and me?

How do I adjust my M4 driver?
And locking mechanisms of the screw in the hosel here. So to open or loosen the shaft screw. In your driver. And you simply place the wrench into the top of the screw. And you turn anti-clockwise.
The TwistFace construction helps immensely with that. The curvature of the face and variable thickness points reduce spin but still allow you to get a good response which will help you improve.This driver also has a tungsten weight in the back to improve ball flight, but it’s not quite as heavy as the TaylorMade or Callaway versions. However, this one is adjustable, so you can soften your slice or increase your draw based on your natural tendencies.

Having the weight low and far back also helps to widen the sweet spot, so your distance doesn’t suffer. This, paired with TwistFace technology, is a deadly combination.
The sole is the most significant breakthrough and changes with the TaylorMade driver M4 from the M3. Using Geocoustic technology, TaylorMade could shave the sole down to its thinnest possible state while still providing a solid structure.

The TaylorMade M4 Driver release date was early in the year 2018. Alongside it was also the M3 driver, so consumers had a choice of whether they wanted moveable weights. Both drivers have the new TwistFace tech, but those looking for more customization will prefer the M3 with its Y-track weighting system.
Once the driver is assembled, they use two low injection points on the toe and heel to add a special resin to the face. This brings the face to a thickness that is right on the line of being legal and makes it very active, so tee shots explode off it.Until 2009, Colt company possessed intellectual property rights on the M4 Carbine TDP (technical data package) and was the sole supplier of M4 carbines to the US Military. Other companies produced similar clones as well, but those were sold either to civilian markets (in semi-automatic only versions) or foreign clients. In 2013 FN Manufacturing Inc, a US-based subsidiary of the famous Belgian company FN Herstal won a significant contract to deliver M4A1 carbines to US Army, and now it appears to be a major supplier of carbines to US DoD. Colt still makes select-fire M4 and M4A1 carbines too, and offers semi-automatic, civilian legal versions of the M4 carbine with 16-inch barrels.

Initial combat experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq resulted in several desired updates, addressing the reliability and durability of the carbine. As a result, the M4A1 carbine and the M4 carbine are now fitted with a heavier barrel, which better withstands protracted and intense firing. Despite the shorter effective range and decreased lethality, as compared to the M16A2 or M16A4 rifle, by 2015 the M4 / M4A1 carbine became the primary fighting rifle for US Army and US Marine Corps Infantry units.

Who made the original M4?
The M4 carbine was developed by the famous Colt company on request from the US Armed forces, as a shortened version of a then-new M16A2 rifle. It was intended as a personal defense weapon for non-infantry personnel, to replace ineffective handguns and obsolete submachine guns in this role.
The M4 carbine was developed by the famous Colt company on request from the US Armed forces, as a shortened version of a then-new M16A2 rifle. It was intended as a personal defense weapon for non-infantry personnel, to replace ineffective handguns and obsolete submachine guns in this role. Colt received an initial development contract in 1984, and by 1986 first XM4 carbine prototypes were delivered to US Army for initial tests. It took several more years to finalize and approve the design, and in 1994 US DoD officially adopted M4 and M4A1 carbines for service.Early on US SOCOM selected the M4 carbine as a potential primary individual weapon for its operators, for its handiness and lighter weight. Subsequently, it developed the so-called SOPMOD M4 kit which includes a RIS forend and several ancillaries such as sights, forward grips, sound suppressors, etc.

The M4 carbine is mechanically similar to the M16A4 rifle, except for the following major updates. It features a shorter, 14.5-inch barrel, and a telescoped shoulder stock. Internally it features a different bolt carrier buffer, shorter gas system, and an altered feed ramp cut in the barrel extension and the receiver, to ensure reliable feeding. Almost all M4 carbines, except for the earliest production run, feature so-called “flat-top” receivers with integrated Picatinny rail, which replaced the M16A2-style carrying handle. Most current production M4 carbines also feature RIS forends with additional rails. The M4 carbine can deliver semi-automatic fire and 3-round bursts, and its safety/fire selector lever is appropriately marked “Safe – Semi – Burst”. The M4A1 carbine does not have a burst limiting mechanism in its trigger unit, and its selector is marked “Safe – Semi-Auto”. All other properties of the M4 and M4A1 are similar.
As a primary infantry weapon, the M4 carbine can be fitted with a knife-bayonet, an underbarrel grenade launcher such as M203 or M320, a sound suppressor, and a host of other accessories such as tactical flashlights, laser designations, and various day and night sights. For close combat, its standard upper receiver can be replaced with the Mk.18 with an even shorter 10.3-inch barrel. Another recent upgrade for USSOCOM M4A1 carbines in the 5.56mm SURG (Suppressed Upper Receiver Group), built by SIG-Sauer and based on their SIG MCX rifle.

As of early 2022, US Army plans to replace M4 carbines in the front-line infantry units with a new, much more potent weapon which is being developed under the NGSW program, but so far this program brought no definite results. If the NGSW program succeeds, the M4 carbine again will be relegated to its original role as the Personal Defense Weapon for non-infantry units.Just an average golfer trying to take my game to the next level. Was shooting around 100 not that long ago but have now been in the 80s consistently. Best round to date was 12 over. Best 9 holes were 4 over.

The main difference I noticed was the M2 was a lot more forgiving than the M1 and it’s designed more for the masses. I’m a mid handicap golfer and I didn’t feel like I was consistent enough with the M1 driver. The M2 was clearly better for me.
If the choice was up to me I’d spend a little bit more money and get a slightly newer driver. Even though the M2 was great, there are a few drivers that are still priced pretty similar that performed better for me (and I think you’d like them more).

As I mentioned before, the M2 is for the masses who don’t have the fastest swing speed but still want the benefits of a premium driver. The M2 feels solid and the distance is just as good as any other driver out there. It’s still a little bit expensive but if you want a high-end driver but don’t want to spend the big bucks, it could be for you.We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program.

In my opinion, it’s a great driver for golfers who need a lot of help with distance and forgiveness. I got a good amount of distance from the club and it was a lot more forgiving than most on off-center hits. The only downside I could see was that it’s still a bit expensive for a driver that’s a couple of years old. Overall, I think this would be a great driver for your average recreational golfer. I personally liked the M2 a lot more and had better distance and accuracy with it. That’s because my swing speed is slower and that’s what the club is designed for. The launch angle was also nice and high, which helped improve distance.

In my opinion, the M1 is harder to hit and it was designed more for tour players and the M2 was for mid to high handicaps with slower swing speeds. You could still use the M2 driver if you’re a lower handicap but you might want to be able to adjust your driver to suit your game. Here’s a demo video:
If you plan on golfing a lot or you have more money to spend and want something a bit higher quality, I’d suggest a few other drivers or the newer M6. You can see those below.Out Of Bounds Golf is a website for the average golfer. We aren’t pros, but are huge fans of the game. We created this site to test out different products and find the best gear and tips for the average weekend hacker.I haven’t always been the biggest fan of Taylormade clubs but was pretty excited when the M series drivers came out. In this post, I’m going to be reviewing the Taylormade M2 driver and talking about whether or not it’s worth picking up.The main thing I noticed after swinging this club was that it was super similar to the M1. The weight, balance, and feel were both pretty similar and the only difference I could see was the M2 didn’t have the sliding weights and it was quite a bit cheaper. It’s the newer and more adjustable version of the Aeroburner. I’ve only swung the Aero a couple of times but I’ll definitely say I like the M2 a lot more. I also had the Rocketballz driver and the M2 felt much better at impact. I found the M2 to feel more solid and sounded a lot better through impact than the M1 as well. If you’ve ever used (and liked) a previous generation driver from Taylormade, I think you’d like the M2 even better.Overall, if you’re in the market for a premium driver but don’t want to spend a fortune, I’d definitely consider the Taylormade M2. For a slower swing speed like myself, it gave me the distance I was looking for but was still fairly forgiving on off-center hits (this would be a huge plus for most). That’s why I give it a thumbs up and recommend it.

If you’re a lower handicap with a faster swing speed I’d recommend the M1 or the newer M6 driver. What I like about the M6 is that it’s great for all levels of golfers. The only difference between the M5 and M6 is that the M5 has adjustments. Everything else was extremely close when I tested them out.
The price of the driver has stayed pretty flat over the years and that’s something that’s throwing me a bit off. For around $100 more (if you get it new), you can get the latest version, which is a lot more forgiving.Even though it’s more forgiving than the Aero or RB driver, it still hooks and slices bigtime if you mishit it. That’s pretty much the case with most drivers that were made during the same period. The newer M6 driver was so much more forgiving though. Overall, the performance was pretty solid and I’d still give it a thumbs up.After introducing you to the features and performance of this driver, I will assess how it compares to the manufacturer’s latest releases. In addition, the analysis will help you decide if the TaylorMade M4 driver is suited to your swing.

The M4 delivers exceptional all-around forgiveness, from accelerating ball speed on off-center strikes to minimizing side spin. This support helps you achieve optimal distance and accuracy.
The first stand-out feature of the M4 driver is its new twist face technology. Well, it was fresh back in 2018. The revolutionary new face curvature for that time produced a corrective face angle to combat off-center strikes. Low spin off the tee enables you to produce piercing ball flight and prompt optimal forward roll upon landing. When I create excess spin, I balloon my drives and lose distance. The ball shoots into the air and descends rapidly before coming to an abrupt halt. Matt Callcott-Stevens started playing golf at the age of 4 when Rory Sabattini’s father put a 7-iron and putter in his hand. He has experienced all the highs and lows the game can throw at you and has now settled down as a professional golf writer. He holds a Postgraduate in Sports Marketing and has played golf for 28 years. In addition, altering the loft impacts the level of backspin RPM you produce at impact. Weakening the loft by 2 degrees can boost your backspin by 400 RPM. That setup prompts a high launch, ideal for slower swingers. As TaylorMade has launched several drivers since, I thought it would be fun to hit the range again and see how it compares to a newer model. Therefore, I have written a TaylorMade M4 driver review here to determine if it is still a force to be reckoned with.In addition, the increased flexibility of the TaylorMade M4 driver expands the sweet spot for maximum forgiveness. As a result, the wider sweet spot delivers ample ball speed across the face for consistent distance off the tee.Furthermore, its face curvature construction beats off unwanted spin prompted by off-center strikes. This reduces the risk of you hooking or slicing your drive into trouble.

Forgiveness is one of the crucial features of the TaylorMade M4 driver. The presence of a flexible clubface, enlarged sweet spot, and hammerhead slot ensures a forgiving driver.
TaylorMade crafts the M4 driver in three key loft settings. The lowest lofted design is 9.5-degrees, followed by a 10.5-degree construction. Finally, golfers with a slow driver swing speed should appreciate the 12-degree driver. As an older model driver, the M4 is now at a convenient price point for mid and high-handicappers. It has come down by $200 to $300 in price, making it far more attractive to the average golfer than new premium drivers from TaylorMade. The beauty of the M4 is that it contains an adjustable hosel. Therefore, you can continuously strengthen the loft of your driver to reduce backspin RPM.To alter the loft, you need a wrench to help you loosen the screws on the sole. Rotate anti-clockwise to slacken the screws, and remove them. Then, slip the head of the shaft. Turn the hosel to achieve your desired loft.

For example, strengthening the loft by 2 degrees can open your clubface up to 4 degrees. That sets your driver up to deliver a fade bias. Conversely, lowering the loft by 2 degrees closes the club face by 4 d
egrees. This positions the driver for a draw bias.
Furthermore, helping you get your ball airborne, the twist face technology resists side spin on heel and toe mishits. As a result, you produce straighter shots for an improved fairway in regulation record.Geocoustic technology delivers a solid deafening sound at impact. Exactly the noise you expect to hear from your driver when you crush it out of the sweet spot. In addition, it offers a relatively soft feel as it drowns out vibrations on off-center strikes.Fortunately, TaylorMade’s engineers employed Speed Pocket technology to boost speed on all shots. Therefore, you enjoy consistent ball flight and distance on all connections.

Geocoustic tech employs sole shaping techniques to deliver superior sound and feel at impact. Therefore, you enjoy the rewarding acoustics of your clubface, striking the ball on every tee shot.
Furthermore, TaylorMade added a recessed sole contour construction to the head, freeing up weight in the clubhead. That enabled the engineers to craft a larger flexible clubface with an enhanced sweet spot. As a result, it delivers maximum forgiveness.

The TaylorMade M4 is an exceptional driver. Although it is a few years older than newer models from the equipment giant, it remains relevant. Like new TaylorMade drivers, the M4 is highly forgiving, reduces spin, and generates rapid ball speed.
Overall, it gives the average golfer everything we need off the tee; and it is at a fraction of its release price. If you are after a highly forgiving, long, and adjustable driver, you should consider the TaylorMade M4 driver.

Its flexible face springs into the ball at impact and accelerates velocity. This prompts a high launching, long flying ball, resulting in exceptional distance. Even when you strike the ball low off the face.
Moreover, the hosel alters the angle of the face. You can set your club up to induce a draw or a fade. Strengthen your loft on the adjustable hosel, and keep your clubface open and ready to prompt a fade shape.TaylorMade built the M4 to accelerate ball speed and reduce spin on your drives. My average driving distance is 270-yards, and the M4 produced 274-yards in testing. Therefore, it creates slightly more distance than my regular driver.

Speed pocket technology is effective when you catch the ball low off the face. It springs into action and accelerates your ball speed to produce optimal yardage. Without this technology, your driver delivers inadequate spin and velocity for adequate yardage.
A hammerhead slot is inserted into the driver’s sole to support the outer portions of the slot. That reduces the mass, encouraging a more flexible face through impact. This benefits you on off-center hits, where you need all the ball speed necessary to produce sufficient distance off the tee.There is little not to like about the TaylorMade M4 driver. It is forgiving, feels superb, and delivers optimal distance on all strikes. However, they are skint on stock shaft options. There is only one brand of stock shaft available.

Fujikura constructed this shaft in stiff, regular, and senior flex. Therefore, they are designed for golfers who produce fast, average, and slow club head speed.Off the clubface, the TaylorMade M4 produces a solid, explosive sound to warn your partners that a bomb is flying down the fairway. Geocoustic technology helped the engineers execute advanced sole shaping techniques. This means that the clubhead is crafted for optimal sound and feel at impact.By adding an adjustable hosel, TaylorMade allows you to tinker with the loft, angle, and your clubface lie. If you are generating excess backspin RPM you can strengthen your driver’s loft to reduce spin. Conversely, you can weaken the loft to encourage additional backspin RPM.

On average, I generate 2100 RPM of backspin with my driver. When I tested the M4, I averaged 100 mph less than that, clocking in at 2000 RPM. I am satisfied with this level, and it is what I expect to receive from my big stick.

Therefore, striking the ball in the high toe increases the loft of the face. Conversely, if the clubface catches the ball off the low heel, it reduces the apex of your shot. This is done to produce a consistent spin on all drives.
When we miss the center of the driver’s face, we reduce the coefficient of restitution (COR), which slows down our ball speed. The loss of velocity leads to a weaker launch and a loss of distance.The M4 driver features an adjustable hosel, enabling golfers to alter their loft by 2 degrees of additional or less loft. Plus, adjustments impact the angle of the clubface.

At the end of the day though, these irons do much more for beginners than play long. Beginners, who will often find themselves in the rough, will benefit from the beefy sole and strong lofts of these irons.The Taylormade M family of irons also includes the M2 irons. The first thing we noticed about the M2 irons compared to the Taylormade M4’s is that the M2’s don’t do as good a job at dampening harsh impact vibrations.

“If you’re just hoping to make good contact and praying to stay on the fairway, the Taylormade M6 irons will suit your needs. If you want better performance from a variety of lies and more workability, the Taylormade M4’s are better.”Whether you are a high or a mid handicapper, the M6 irons are some of the best irons around for distance and forgiveness and are now available at a more competitive price point.

What year did TaylorMade come out with the M4?
What Year Is The Taylormade M4 Driver? The TaylorMade M4 Driver release date was early in the year 2018. Alongside it was also the M3 driver, so consumers had a choice of whether they wanted moveable weights.
Compare that to the slimmed down M4’s and you can pretty much tell that the Taylormade M6 irons are going to be more forgiving. But there’s more to the story than that. Today we will be taking a look at the Taylormade M6 irons and how they compare to the M4’s specifically.

If you want to get more feel with a players iron as a better player would be one of the only reasons not to use the M6 irons or if you are looking for something specific.
The M6 builds on the success of the M series which has changed the landscape for iron performance for the entire game with Iconic clubs like the M2 and M4 Irons as well.

The Taylormade M6 irons represented a significant break through in the world of golf with the introduction of the speed bridge which adds stability, ball speed and smooth impacts, even on mishits.It felt like the Taylormade M6 irons had better stability on pretty much every type of contact. They sport the “Speed Bridge” which helps brace the head from crown to sole. But beyond that, the Taylormade M6 irons have a larger profile than the M4’s so they are easier to hit with.

Behind the ball, they don’t look like shovels; but there is plenty of head to work with if you’re a high handicapper. That all being said, the workability in these irons is lacking. They have the exact same loft profile as the Taylormade M4 irons and launch angles were nearly identical as well.
