Taylormade M4 Vs Titleist T350 Irons Comparison Overview
Titleist may have Taylormade beat in a lot of arenas but game improvement irons aren’t one of them.
Taylormade has been a titan in the game improvement golf club market for decades now.
And while Titleist has come out with some solid GI irons here and there over the last couple decades, pound for pound, Taylormade is the better company for GI clubs.
But with the advent of the T350 irons, Titleist is looking to give Taylormade a run for its money.
So I tested them against some of the best GI irons Taylormade has produced: the M4’s. Which iron came out on top? Read on to find out.
Taylormade M4 Irons Overview
“The Taylormade M4 irons combine strong lofts with a deep cavity undercut to produce impressive distance and forgiveness.”
The 9-iron in this set is 38° which, incidentally, is the same as the Titleist T350 9-iron. In fact both sets have nearly identical loft profiles.
The M4’s produce a medium launch though because the deep undercut and low CG offset the strong lofts.
Speaking of offset, the M4’s have plenty of it. It starts out very wide in the long irons and only closes up to a moderate stance in the short irons.
The M4’s also feature the Speed Pocket which helps low-face strikes maintain speed.
With the M4 7-iron I managed an average carry distance of 152.5 yards.
Titleist T350 Irons Overview
“The Titleist T350 irons have moderate top lines, moderate soles and a fairly long blade length.”
They look forgiving enough at address but still maintain a sleek profile. They feature a polymer core and a forged face.
Overall, I thought the Titleist T350’s were more consistent than the M4’s.
But what about distance? The Titleist T350’s actually played a bit longer than the M4’s. The Titleist T350 7-iron helped me average 156.7 yards of carry.
I also liked the turf interaction more in these irons than in the M4’s. The Titleist T350’s felt smoother through the turf and I didn’t dig quite so much with them.
“While Taylormade may have more quality game improvement irons than Titleist, in this testing, Titleist makes the better irons.
The Titleist T350’s played longer and felt better in the rough – somewhere high handicappers may often find themselves. And the Titleist T350’s were at least as forgiving as the Taylormade M4’s.”
