With the original SIM, TaylorMade focused on reshaping the driver to deliver speed and aerodynamics at the most critical stage of the swing – right before impact. With the new SIM2 driver family, the company reinvented the way their drivers are constructed with an increased focus on enhanced forgiveness while maintaining speed and optimal launch properties.
To unlock a new dimension of forgiveness with SIM2, TaylorMade engineers were forced to completely rethink how drivers are built from the ground up. By fixating on the process and materials, they discovered a hidden key in the form of a new design called Forged Ring Construction. Utilizing a lightweight and high strength aluminum that’s precision milled, the adjoining feature unites the critical components of the driver head into a singular force.
As the defining component of SIM2, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D, the forged aluminum ring is one of four crucial elements of the unique construction. The other modules are the carbon crown, carbon sole and milled back face cup.
Carbon Crown and Sole – A 6-layer carbon composite crown delivers a sleek black satin finish while saving considerable weight that’s redistributed for increased MOI. Further weight savings come from the durable 9-layer carbon sole that also forms the Inertia Generator. The lightweight sole panel is strategically shaped to improve aerodynamics at the most critical phase of the swing for faster clubhead speeds.
Milled Back Face Cup – The milled back face cup is the only part of the driver head that’s crafted from titanium. The material facilitates energy transfer to encourage faster ball speeds. Behind the face, internal CNC milling varies face thickness and pinpoints performance where golfers need it the most. It works in unison with a new toe-side Speed Injection Port to push ball speeds to the threshold of the maximum legal limit.
The reconstructed SIM2 delivers high MOI properties with a heavy 16g steel weight positioned on the Inertia Generator. The TPS Front Weight is strategically located behind the face to encourage optimal launch with low spin characteristics, delivering performance that’s low on spin and high on forgiveness.
With an intense focus on speed and forgiveness, the SIM2 Max delivers high MOI properties with a heavy 24g tungsten weight positioned on the Inertia Generator. The TPS Front Weight is strategically located on the sole of the club to encourage the optimal mid-to-high launch with mid-to-low spin properties, delivering max forgiveness.
The all-new SIM2 Max•D features a repositioned Inertia Generator that’s closer to the heel, encouraging a heel CG that’s low and back for more forgiveness – designed to deliver a higher launch with the largest, most forgiving face in the SIM2 lineup. The end result, a draw-biased driver without compromise.
