TaylorMade M6 Rocket vs. M4 Fairway Wood


Recommended Posts

Upraded to an M6 Rocket fairway wood this year. Wanted to loft down to a 14 degree 3 wood and get rid of my driver. Play the same stock Atmos 6-S shaft as the one I used in the M4. Although the M6 is easy to hit off  the tee and turf, and distance is great, I can't get much ball flight, whereas with my M4 I got both distance and great ball height-- which made going into par 5s easy. Question, is this more an issue with lofting down to 14 degrees from the 15 I was at? The shaft? Or is this common in the new M6 rocket model? 


Also, for anyone who's had experience playing the M5 fairway wood. Did you find that it was any harder to hit than the M6?


Looking for a great fairway wood to use both off the tee and on the turf to get into par 5s. Struggling with getting the ball up.


Thanks for any help.

I recently put a M5 in the bag.  It’s a rocket for sure.  I don’t have any issues off the deck, but it’s purpose is a tee club.
