TaylorMade are set to launch two more new drivers in 2019 with the TaylorMade M5 and TaylorMade M6 breaking new ground in the technology stakes.
Little more than a year after the M3 and M4 drivers hit the market with the revolutionary Twist Face technology incorporated into the design, TaylorMade are taking things a step further in the creation of the M5 and M6.
While the new drivers won’t be available until the spring, a sneak preview of what they look like and what the new Speed Injected Twist Face does was released in a social media post by TaylorMade.
While the M3 and M4 had Twist Face, the M5 and M6 drivers have the next evolution of the technology which helps calibrate every individual club head and take it to the threshold of the speed limit.

What that ultimately means to golfers is more added ball speed and distance with TaylorMade promising that the M5 and M6 drivers are “engineered to make everybody faster with Speed Injected Twist Face”
If you missed the launched of Twist Face in the M3 and M4, the technology works courtesy of the face being flexible and “twisting” to allow golfers to hit straighter shots and enjoy more success in finding fairways. The technology helps bring the ball path back to centre, even on shots struck out of the toe or heel.
The key to the design is the curvature of the face. It was created to deliver a corrective face angle on off-centre impacts and therefore correct a bad shot so that it doesn’t lose distance or direction.
The Speed Injected Twist Face takes things to the next level by helping create ball speeds never reached before thanks to an ultra-thin Titanium face with redesigned Inverted Cone Technology (ICT), a reengineered, more-flexible Hammerhead 2.0 slot, internal support foam with variable amounts of injected resin and a proprietary algorithm to tune each head.
TaylorMade M5 and M6 Driver Verdict
The new face design has a 20% reduction in thickness to help create a 66% larger sweetspot in the M5 drivers over the M3, TaylorMade tell us.
“Injected Twist Face delivers a hot, yet accurate performance package in the new M6 driver,” said Brian Bazzel, Vice President, Product Creation at TaylorMade. “When you add optimized CG and MOI through the use of a full carbon crown and sole, the result is a complete driver that delivers on all fronts.”
There will also be fairway woods and rescue clubs in the M5 and M6 range, both of which will feature Twist Face technology for the first time only previously been used in the M3 and M4 drivers.
The TaylorMade M5 and M6 irons are also due for release in 2019, featuring ground-breaking Speed Bridge technology for the very first time in any iron.
