Welcome to my Taylormade M6 irons review. Great, easy-hitting irons in a slightly larget package than the M5’s.
I found the performance very similar, but not exactly the same as the M5 irons. Most noticably:
- 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
- Looks: I much prefer the red and black color combination of the M6’s to the grayish bluish color of the M5’s. They also set up behind the ball beautifully.
- Distance: These are long too. Similar distance to the M5’s…which are long.
Testing The M6’s
Range Sessions: 3
On The Course: 2 Rounds with a short warm up before each
How I Test: 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.

My Overall Impressions
Looks: Love the color combo of red and black. Heads are a little to large for my eye but not gaudy in any way.
Distance: As long as the M5’s and any other iron I’ve tested
Trajectory: Nice high trajectory on my standard shots but can be flighted surprisingly well.
Shape: These can be worked left to right and right to left without any issue
Forgiveness: The name of the game with these clubs. All you could ask for
Low Handicap: You’ll want to pass on these. They can do pretty much everything you want, but the visual will get in your way.
Mid Handicap: Definite “Buy” if you’re a higher mid-handicap. Lower mid handicap’s may also have trouble with the head size.
High-Handicap: BUY! Run, Do Not Walk, to get your set.
Here’s A Few 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 hozel & 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
