TaylorMade M5 and M6 Drivers Are Barely Legal

Corked bats were outlawed a long time ago in baseball. Until recently, TaylorMade’s M5 and M6 drivers fell into the same category. Because of TaylorMade’s Speed Injection Twist Face, the drivers were originally designed beyond legal limits. TaylorMade put together a proprietary algorithm to bring things back into accord with limits. The process involves using injected resin for maximum speed. By injecting the resin in varying amounts into the toe and heel of the drivers, the speed of the face can be maximized—right up to the edge of the limits. Four basic steps make up the process. First, an ultra-thin titanium face with a redesigned Inverted Cone Technology is used. Second, the Hammerhead 2.0 slot is re-engineered to be more flexible. Third, the internal support foam has variable amounts of resin. And finally, each head is tuned with the proprietary algorithm.

This process has the added end result of also eliminating variations that are found in current drivers. Many drivers have a different feel to them, creating a lack of consistency which can make finding the right club for you difficult. With the new process, you can more reliably trust that each club will perform the same, narrowing down your choices. What’s more, the drivers also have much larger sweet spots. The drivers have been justifiably dubbed “hot” or “spicy.”
