The company calls them the "Un-Metalwoods" but the truth is, there is still some metal in the latest wood family from the category leader.

The TaylorMade M1 family of drivers, fairways, and "rescues" (their term for hybrids) was unveiled earlier this week at a media event in Connecticut.

Starring in the show was the M1 driver, featuring a clubhead that uses multiple-materials, most notably a carbon composite crown.

This is not new territory for the company. Avid golf equipment fans may be familiar with their Gloire line recently offered in Asian markets and even recall a decade ago when the XR-05 CTI driver was a TaylorMade staple on that side of the pond.

The new M1 line features a combination of titanium and seven layer carbon composite to create the clubheads.  It is highly visible with a distinct forward white portion of the crown blended with the composite portion for a distinctive look.  Blended with the black face it looks as if alignment cues are strong.

Had my first chance to hit the M1 460 driver today.  10.5 built with an ACCRA CS1 shaft.

I want to hit it more before I provide a full review but will say it did feel exceptional off the centre of the face but I did not have some concerns about feel and and sound when not struck flush.

Lots of flexibility for fitting which can be a positive and a negative (if consumer trying to do it themselves).

Nice shape to the head and easy to align.

Will write a full review once I have more time to test and get some more launch monitor data as well.
