The SIM2 Max has been rebuilt and redesigned for maximum forgiveness and power, which is exactly what any high handicapper wants to hear. TaylorMade says the key to achieving these qualities is in the Forged Ring Construction, bringing together all the vital components and achieving a more stable and forgiving club. A fully carbon crown has saved weight to allow for a massive 24g tungsten weight at the back of the club head, which is 8g tungsten that the SIM Max model. This has created a higher MOI, which translates to a better launch angle and more forgiveness.
The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket and Twist Face technology designed to promote maximum ball speeds both remain from last year’s SIM Max. This technology is also designed to keep ball speeds higher and retain club head stability on off-centre strikes, making sure mishits are not overly punished. The Speed Injection Port also remains, but it has been moved to a singular location on the toe for further improved ball speed and distances. Overall, the SIM2 Max driver makes further improvements from last year’s already excellent model. It is a driver with enough forgiveness for the high handicapper, yet will remain enjoyable to use for almost any golfer.
