Welcome to my Taylormade M6 irons review.

Taylormade has done it again. These are great performance irons in a very forgiving package.

I put the M6s through their paces at the range and on the course for many an hour and enjoyed every bit of it. My personal preference is for smaller club heads, but I can't deny their superior performance.

What you'll learn:

  • What surprised me about these irons
  • Exactly who should consider buying the M6 irons...looking at you mid to high handicappers
  • Exactly who shouldn't consider buying the M6 irons...looking at you low to low-mid handicappers

M6 Irons Review...at a Glance

LOOKSLove the color combo of red and black. Heads are a little too large for my eye but not gaudy in any way.
DISTANCEAs long as the M5’s and any other iron I’ve tested
FORGIVENESSThe name of the game with these clubs. All you could ask for
TRAJECTORYNice high trajectory on my standard shots but can be flighted surprisingly well.
FEEL/SOUNDNice click with solid contact
SHAPINGThese can be worked left to right and right to left without any issue
VALUEGreat value. On par with any in this category.

Testing The Taylormade M6 Irons

Range Sessions:  3

On The Course : 2 Rounds with a short warm up before each

How I Tested: I tested the M6’s the same way I tested the M5’s. As I had a whole set, I didn’t attempt to bring two sets to the range or course.

  • I know how far I hit my set, my usual trajectory, and how easily I can work them so I could spot those differences pretty easily.
  • On the range I just used a laser to get the distance to flags and terrain features to get yardages so I could get a good comparison.
  • On the course I pulled my usual clubs for my usual yardages.

What Surprised Me: Workability

  • I was faced with quite a few in between shots during my rounds and I was in testing mode, so I pulled multiple clubs for the same shots and decided to test out workability.
  • I already knew they were long and that I could get the ball up easily, so no need to play around with that.
  • I also figured I could hit draws and fades with them…I was right. Left to right and right to left shots came off easily.
  • What I didn’t expect, was how easy it was to flight the ball…and I’m talking with short irons. This is not really a strong suit of mine.

Still…I pulled off a bunch of medium to low trajectory shots on the first try. I was very pleasantly surprised.

The M6 irons perform very similar, but not exactly the same as the M5 irons. Most noticeably:

  • The heads were larger and  more game improvementy
  • The shafts were a bit lite for my taste at 93 G. The set I just replaced had 130 G shafts and my current set has 115 G shafts.
  • A little more forgiving

Who are the Taylormade M6 Irons for?

The M6 irons are for...

Beginner or High-Handicap: BUY! Run, Do Not Walk to get your set.

Mid Handicap: Strong BUY if you are a 13 on up. The M6's will work fine for all but the most accomplished ball strikers that tend to prefer smaller club heads and less offset. 

Low Handicap: Hard PASS.

Warning...Boring Facts About The Tech Behind Superior Performance

Specific Technology From Taylormade (SAME AS THE M5’S)

  • Speed Bridge (the bar across the top of the backside of the clubhead): Provides added stability decreased vibration and a better sound at impact. Ads stiffness around the perimeter for higher ball speed and reduced energy loss. Ads support for the  Speed Slot for added distance
  • Inverted Cone Technology (ICT): ultra-thin face design to deliver superior ball speed over the entire face
  • HYBRAR compression damper: “Filters unwanted face vibrations” for better sound
  • Fluted hosel & 360* Undercut: Allows weight to be moved lower in the head lowering the center of gravity for higher, more penetrating launch angle even with lower face contact
  • Tungsten used to add forgiveness while maintaining compact head design
