New year, new irons! TaylorMade is at it again this time launching a duo of new irons featuring SPEED BRIDGE. Now I think we can all agree that the new Taylormade M5 and M6 Irons looks amazing, but what the heck is SPEED BRIDGE? We wondered the same thing… and as it turns out it is metal bridge on the back of the club extending from the bottom of the cavity back to nearly the top of the back of the club. Or as TaylorMade puts it, “SPEED BRIDGE is  the key to unlocking the ability to design M5 and M6 irons with a thru-slot Speed Pocket, our most flexible Speed Pocket to date. With the introduction of SPEED BRIDGE, the company’s most iconic technologies have been united in perfect harmony to deliver game changing performance for players of all levels.”

While we haven’t yet had a chance to go hands on with these irons just yet, we hope to in the coming months and bring you a full in-depth review. Here’s some of the key specs and features that have us excited to get on the course with the TaylorMade M5 and M6 irons this season.
