Spotted: A TaylorMade “M4” driver (via Instagram)

Published

on

We’ve spotted two photos of a TaylorMade M4 driver making the rounds on Instagram and in our TaylorMade M3/M4 forum thread. While Instagram username “Golfization” — whom we believe to be the originator of the photos — has been deleted, below is a screenshot of the original post. The photos have since been shared by a variety of other Instagram users, as well. TaylorMade currently has no comment on the photos or the driver.

Based on the photos of the driver, it appears that the TaylorMade M4 pictured has the company’s “Geocoustic” technology that uses geometries to improve sound and feel. It also displays a new “Hammerhead” technology, based on writing written on a slot in the sole of the driver in the photo above. Even if the photo does not picture an M4 that will hit retail, the photo at least shows that TaylorMade has made a driver that goes away from it’s popular white-centric color scheme, replacing it with silver, much like a previous SLDR S design.

Is this TaylorMade’s new M4? That question has yet to be answered. But click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the Instagram photos.

    I actually like it quite a bit because it definitely has looks of BMW. Enough for a lawsuit or some agreement to be in place. Porche has trademark on their fonts, would be surprised if BMW did not go just as far.

    The silver looks horrible. Black and white looked amazing.

    Taylormade have only ever built one club (an iron) that was good, but they don’t even know it. They jagged the design of it. If they knew they would bring it back. The R9 tour.

    As long as it performs, and that the head isn’t too light like the retail M2, but as heavy as the SLDR

    The silver looks like sh*t. Go back to white with black.

      I agree, no comparison between this and the old M1’s and M2’s. Which are not that old LOL The white and black color schemes look amazing. This is so muhhhhhhhhh.

        Hopefully they will have color options,(white on black, grey on black, and black on black etc) That would be great!

    Can’t stand the grey with the black. The white looks so much better. Why can’t they just keep the crown like it was?

    Looks like no sliding or screw-in weights, just some fancy internal structures to reinforce the driver head and give the impression that it’s something important for performance. Another semi-annual WITB scam for gullible gearheads.

      I’m guessing there will be an “M3” version with the adjustable weights.

    Make the top all honeycomb black and I’m in. Really don’t like the multiple colors.

    I wonder how much in royalties BMW will be receiving from Taylormade… if none, I’m sure we can expect to see a lawsuit in the near future.

    I suppose the slogan can still remain the same for both companies, though: “The Ultimate Driving Machine”.

      lawsuits? I guess if BMW also applied their trademarks to golf equipment…

      • Bishop

        Nov 10, 2017 at 3:20 pm

        Or a trademark on the “M4” emblem…

        • Mr. Divot

          Nov 10, 2017 at 4:25 pm

          When you apply for a trademark, it has to be specified which category the trademark will be used. Then you have to prove usage in that category after receiving the trademark. Also, you can’t use a super broad description of intended trademark usage so that it covers a bunch of different industries and uses, when in reality, you plan to only use it in one or two particular industry categories. It’s doubtful BMW applied for usage of the ‘M4’ trademark in the golf club category, although they definitely would have applied for clothing, so there may be some overlap there.

      I’m not a lawyer so I wont comment on the legality of it but, I think calling them M3/M4 and using this color scheme is just flat out desperate and disrespectful.

    Boo ya baby! Gonna be an expensive spring. Can’t wait to read what tweaks they made. Is Sergio crying now or is he already dialing in on an epic now? Wow

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Which one do you think the new iron looks like?
