The Taylormade M3 440 Is As Long And Straight As The M3 (So Any Club On The Market)

Full Review Of The M3 440 Driver From Taylormade

Distance: The M3 is flat out hotter than my current driver. I could feel the ball springing off the face.

The ball carries forever when you catch it and with less effort, it seems.

Feel/Sound: Great sounding driver…
I really liked the feel and the sound of the ball coming off the face. It felt a lot more lively than my driver and had a pleasant hollow sound when hit solidly. I think it’s basically the same sound most of the newer drivers make and I like it. The club just felt more powerful than mine.

Shaping: My standard tee shot these days is a little fade and I hit quite a few long fades down the middle during my last round.
The draw used to be my standard shot with my irons and my driver and I never really had to try to hit it. Now it’s not quite as natural off the tee so I don’t worry about it. I go with my prevailing shot shape. 

Forgiveness: With my better or average swings, I found myself in the fairway or just in the right rough. Truly bad swings just couldn’t be helped and were lost well right.

Looks: Gray on black is not my favorite, but it isn’t ugly by any stretch. I strongly prefer the white-on-black of the M1 and M2. Just a personal preference thing.

How I Tested The New Taylormade M3 440 Driver

Specs: TaylorMade M3 440 Driver Men Right Hand
Loft: 10 degrees
Shaft: Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei White 60 Graphite Stiff Flex

I had the M3 440 and the M4 for 14 days. I went to the range for 5 or 6 sessions and hit a little over 100 balls each time. I also took them out on the course twice during a regular round.

For my range sessions: I switched between my current driver (Taylormade R9) and each driver for about 3 swings each at a time. I would switch in a short iron every few swings to regain some tempo.

For my rounds on the course: I used one driver for 9 holes then switched to the other for the next 9 holes.

I’m just north of a 10-handicap and generate a decent amount of clubhead speed, somewhere around 105 mph. I’m not the straightest nor the wildest driver. I imagine I’m somewhere around typical.

I should be the ideal candidate to benefit from this club. Basically, the whole face is supposed to be a sweet spot (more or less) and it is easily adjustable to pretty much any trajectory or shot shape you desire.


The M3 440 is a great driver that packs all the distance and forgiveness most any golfer needs…No one is going to be bombing their drives by you because they have a better club.

Loft Options: 9 or 10 degrees
Shaft Customization Options:

  • Multiple manufacturers & multiple models from each(Aldila, UST, Project X, Mitsubishi, etc.)
  • Multiple flex options (Jr, S, R, A, 6.0, 6.5, etc.)

Hope you enjoyed my Taylormade M3 440 driver review.Another great driver from Taylormade.
