The launch of a new range of TaylorMade Metal woods is always a highly anticipated day on the golfing calendar, and that will certainly be the case this year as TaylorMade release the follow up to their wildly popular SIM MAX range of last year. The new SIM MAX 2 range of drivers has already been fully embraced by the TaylorMade Tour players with virtually all of them moving across to the new model. Clearly there is something special at hand here, so let’s look at what TaylorMade have done to improve upon the already superb SIM MAX driver.
The main enhancement found on the SIM MAX 2 driver is the new Forged Ring Construction which takes the form of a large blue ring that circumnavigates the back part of the head. Made from an extremely lightweight and strong aluminium the Forged Ring serves to unite a large rear weight, full carbon crown and sole and new milled back cup face. This hugely improves the stability of the driver and makes the SIM MAX 2 by far the most forgiving driver TaylorMade have ever produced. The aim here is to give golfers the confidence to use driver even when faced with a tight tee shot.
The Speed injected Twist-Face remains and sees the face of each driver produced right to the edge of legality, ensuring that ball speeds are as fast off the face as are allowed by the rules. The Twist face is a corrective curvature built into the face of each driver which helps to straighten out the curve of shots that have been struck out of the heel or toe.
As with the SIM MAX, the SIM MAX 2 looks superb when placed behind the ball at address. The now familiar carbon crown has been darkened, and the outer edges of the crown are highlighted by striking blue lines that hints to the Forged Ring that lies unseen under the back of the head in the same colour. The Speed-In-Motion Inertia Generator once again adorns the sole of the club and its drag reducing, aerodynamic properties have been proven to aid with increasing clubhead speed.
The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket has been re-engineered to be the most flexible iteration of it to date and wraps around onto the front part of the sole. This makes it much more effective on low face strikes which has historically been one of the more distance sapping places to strike the ball. Spin has always increased on low face strikes as well but this has been kept to a minimum by the improvement in the speed-slot.
The stock shafts available with the SIM MAX 2 are the extremely popular Ventus Blue and the tour proven Kuru Kage. Many more shafts options are available on the express custom tab on our website. This incredible new service allows you to custom fit your own driver with options that have never been available before. The SIM MAX 2 driver offers a mid-launch with mid to low spin and is suitable for most levels of golfer and combines explosive distance with extreme forgiveness.
If you are in the market for a new driver this spring, then it will be hard to look past the qualities the new SIM MAX 2 brings to the golf course. TaylorMade have produced possibly the best driver will we see released in 2021.
