In this review, we take an in-depth look at the M4 driver, and its performance, touching briefly on some of the key features and technology deployed in this Club.
Although there are newer Taylormade models in the market, if you are still looking at the 2018 M4 driver, this review will help you decide if this club can be a good fit for your game.
Taylormade M4 2018 Drivers Review – Introduction.
The Taylormade M4 driver is a massive upgrade from the original M2 driver, which by the way, was also a huge success.
One of the major differences between the M4 drivers and the previous models is the twist face design.
The twist face design in the Taylormade M4 driver is basically aimed at helping golfers correct those shots that are hit off-center.
Using data from the previous models, Taylormade discovered golfers were having a hard time dealing with mishits, and by default, the twist face design will help correct that, and from everything we have seen, and of course, from all the available feedback, the M4 drivers has been a huge success so far.
Taylormade M4 2018 Drivers Review – Basic Features/Technologies.
Some of the key technologies that Taylormade deployed in developing the M4 driver include the Twist Face technology.
The new twist face technology is a revolutionary Twist Face/curvature designed by Taylormade to help correct shots hit off-center. With this correction, off-center strikes can now produce straighter and farther distances, just like any other shots.
There is also the Hammerhead Technology.
This is designed to increase the sweetspot, adding more ball speed as well as dropping all unwanted spin.
What Taylormade did here is to try and achieve a higher launch and low spin with the M4 driver.
This Hammerhead design creates a thinner face and an increased sweetspot that provides more ball speed on off-center hits.
Comparing the sweetspot on the M4 driver and the original M2 driver, you get about 67% more in the M4 driver than any previous model.
The M4 driver also features a new Geocoustic technology which was first introduced in the original M2 driver, and here, there is an increased weight back, about 41g of mass is pushed at the back for increased forgiveness.
Geocoustic engineering also allows for sound control helping the M4 driver to produce great sound at impact.
There are 3 different loft options in the M4 driver.
Taylormade is using the Fujikura Atmos Red as the standard stock shaft, while the Golf Pride Dual Feel is the standard stock grip.

The 2018 M4 Looks great in the bag and behind the ball.
The new M4 driver might look closely similar to the previous M3 and M2 drivers but actually, it has a larger face leading to a much larger sweetspot.
Besides, the aesthetic feature of the M4 looks a little different previous M2 and M3, with a silver finish and a red/blue color scheme.
This Club is a performance Club designed as an upgrade from the original M2 driver, and other previous drivers, and has enhanced features to generate better performance.
Indeed, on the course, you would see increased forgiveness, more ball speeds, and better sound at impact, thanks to better technology and engineering.
The 2018 M4 driver is incredibly forgiving compared to previous models.
The twist face technology combined with the speed pocket gives the M4 driver increased forgiveness most high handicap golfers are looking for, and they would absolutely love it.
With this, shots hit off-center feel as good as any other shot, all thanks to the twist face technology.
Sound & Feel.
Using the advanced sole shaping techniques through Geocoustic technology, the 2018 M4 driver delivers an explosive sound and a soft yet solid feel at impact.
I was extremely pleased with the sound I got from the M4 driver.
Speeds & Distance.
Both speed and distance in this 2018 M4 driver are way better than what is obtained from the previous model.
Looks like the new twist face and the back weight system, together with the Hammerhead technology have all contributed to an increased ball speed and added distance.
