Irons: TM Speedblade or TM M2?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I had a set of Speedblades and absolutely loved them. Haven't hit the M2s but I know you won't be disappointed with Speedblades. Like always, it's always good to get fitted but I enjoyed the Speedblades a lot.

You can get the Speedblades for a great deal right now - full sets under $300.

Here's another option you may want to consider.

The TM RSi's and PSi's added the slots in the face that help with mishits.  To be fair, the M2's have them too...

If you're a new golfer, you'd probably benefit from that technology.

 

Having said that, the RSi2's are a little older, yet still have that technology.

You can find a deal for them on eBay pretty reasonable price (just saw some for $250 + $30 shipping).

There are a lot of good choices out there, it would do you some benefit to get fit for the right shaft (regular, stiff, etc) and lie (up/down).  If you don't want to go to a store and do it - there are a few places you can do it on-line.  Not as beneficial, but certainly insightful - especially considering you swing is likely to change as you gain experience.  Check out:

There are plenty of others, you can google to find one you like - or to validate one site against another.

Good luck!

Not sure if you ended up buying your set already, but getting fitted is always a good idea.

That being said I have used both and definitely preferred the speedblades to the m2 Irons. The speedblades were a rental set at a resort I went to and I felt instantly comfortable with them and really enjoyed hitting them.

The m2 I used was on a launch monitor at a store and it just didn't work as well for me. I'm sure it's a great club, but it didn't get along with me.

Hope you find the set that works for you!

I have hit both. And I did prefer the M2. For many of the same reasons other people have stated. As well the black finish does make them look smaller and yet you get all the benefits of the wider body for forgiveness

Just purely from a standpoint of visual aesthetics, I think the M2s are a clear winner.  The black, as jayjay said, makes them look smaller and it looks sharper in my opinion.  I have hit both clubs and I prefer the M2s over the speedblades.  I am big on how they visually look, as most golfers are.... How does it look?  Do I like looking at it?  The M2s won in this category for me.

I would go for the speed blades.

 

Cheaper price and better clubs imho. I had a set of rsi 1's with the face slots and the face caved in on one of the irons. I think the speed slots work great but was a bad idea on the faces.

Here is a different perspective.

Being your fairly new to the game, my recommendation would be to get the speedbladzes. It'll save some $$ & they're good clubs. I'd doubt you would notice a big difference and as your game improves then get a newer set.

This is great advice!! I've played blades, MB and cavity backs....the Speedblades will definitely be a better fit for a beginner and they will grow with you for a long time.

 

As you can see from my WITB I'm still playing a set now.

I put mine back in the bag last week, enjoy playing them again.

With that said, its fun to switch back and forth with my Wishons

Try them both out. Preferably in a launch monitor but also see if they have a demo club of each to go to the range and try. Try 'bind' testing them to see which one feels/looks better without knowing which club it was. I did that with a few brands and ended up with the TM irons i have now (rocketbladz tour)

I have Speedblades and I like them a lot. I wanted the face slots of the rsi, but they were $700 at the time, and later I've also heard that they have some kind of defect from being weak. If you get the Speedblade, I suggest you get the set without the jetspeed hybrids. I ditched those hybrids and wish I would've taken the set with the AW and 4 iron instead.

Speedblades are the one iron set I regret moving on from too quickly. I didn't get along with the stock shafts at the time, I had plenty of distance but the flight was way too low. And that was all on me, not the clubs. Great set if you can find them in good condition for short money right now, which shouldn't be too hard at all.

OK, Thank you. I came across your posts from a Google search looking to compare M4's to Speed Blades.

I've played golf for about 7 years now, had a cheapie set of Tommy Armours and then bought a new set of Speed Blades (steel shafts). 

I've gone from an 18 to 8 with the Speed Blades, great clubs!!! I've just bought a set of M4's (don't really know why) but fully intend on keeping

the Speed Blades and go back and forth.
