Pro Tip: TaylorMade SIM vs. SIM2 Driver

Pro Tip: TaylorMade Sim vs. Sim2 Drivers
SHOP TAYLORMADE DRIVERS

The TaylorMade SIM drivers are the beginning of TaylorMade’s latest dynasty. With variations of the SIM driver and the already-released TaylorMade SIM2 driver, these golf clubs build upon the popular M Family line of drivers.

TaylorMade Golf is known for their innovation, which is why we really shouldn’t be surprised the SIM family of drivers is so high-performing. They started the new decade releasing the TaylorMade SIM driver, TaylorMade SIM Max driver and TaylorMade SIM Max D driver. Some of the technology may seem similar to the TaylorMade M5 and M6 drivers, though the SIM line takes certain features to the next level.

SIM stands for “Shape in Motion,” and perfectly describes what sets these drivers apart from their predecessors. The new, aerodynamic club head design takes these drivers to new heights (no pun intended) and plays a key role in improving your ball flight.

The TaylorMade SIM Driver Gains Speed Through Aerodynamics

TaylorMade SIM Driver

Introduced for 2020, the TaylorMade SIM driver features aerodynamics that create more club head speed, ball speed and forgiveness than ever before. The design builds upon the Speed Inject™ and Twist Face™ technologies introduced in earlier TaylorMade driver lines, which not only provides a foundation for faster ball speeds, but also consistently corrects missed shots for straighter outcomes.

The TaylorMade SIM driver is also extremely customizable, allowing you to further correct your shot tendencies. The TaylorMade SIM driver isn’t even one of the traditional TaylorMade D-Type drivers, yet it allows you to alter your shot shape up to 20 yards. Additionally, you can easily customize your launch trajectory and ball flight.

The TaylorMade SIM Max Driver Is All About Forgiveness

TaylorMade SIM Max Driver

The TaylorMade SIM Max driver takes most of the technologies found in the SIM driver and makes the golf club even more forgiving. The Inertia Generator, also found in the SIM driver, increases the moment of inertia (MOI) in the golf club.

You can think of MOI as the amount of resistance the club head has as it moves through impact; the higher the MOI, the more stable your clubhead and, therefore, the more likely your clubface will be square at impact.

To further increase the TaylorMade SIM Max driver’s forgiveness, the club head is 8 percent larger than the SIM club head. You may find yourself hitting this TaylorMade driver further if you are a mid-to-high handicapper, as this design’s trajectory is higher than the SIM driver’s.

The TaylorMade SIM Max D Driver Fixes Your Slice

TaylorMade SIM Max D Driver

The TaylorMade SIM Max D driver takes the SIM Max design a step further, especially for those whose tendency is to slice the golf ball off the tee. Again, most of the technology in this TaylorMade driver overlaps with the TaylorMade SIM and SIM Max drivers, but with two main differences.

The first is the D-Type aspect of this driver. The TaylorMade SIM Max D driver is specifically designed with draw bias to counteract your slice. The second is this club head design is 18 percent larger than the TaylorMade SIM driver and 10 percent larger than the TaylorMade SIM Max driver, making this golf club even more forgiving than the SIM Max. As an added bonus, the TaylorMade SIM Max D driver also launches the ball higher if you’re looking to increase distance off the tee.

The TaylorMade SIM2 Driver Is Stronger and Lighter

TaylorMade SIM 2 Driver

If you thought the SIM drivers were impressive, you need to check out the TaylorMade SIM2 drivers. Introduced in 2021, each SIM2 version correlates with the original SIM design, so it makes sense that the TaylorMade SIM2 driver has similar technology as the SIM driver; however, the SIM2 design includes the use of a lighter and stronger material and a different weighting system.

These advancements have made the TaylorMade SIM2 driver faster and more forgiving, all while providing more distance and a lower spin rate. Add in the customizability and you’ve found your match if you are a low handicapper.

The TaylorMade SIM2 Max Driver Further Increases MOI

TaylorMade SIM 2 Max Driver

The TaylorMade SIM2 Max driver follows the same approach as the SIM Max driver, but with the new SIM2 construction. This TaylorMade driver is even more forgiving than its predecessor thanks to its higher MOI and larger club head. In addition to granting maximum forgiveness, the TaylorMade SIM2 Max driver also increases your distance off the tee with a higher launch angle if you are a mid-to-high handicapper.

The TaylorMade SIM2 Max D Driver Combines Draw Bias and Forgiveness

TaylorMade SIM 2 Max D Driver

The TaylorMade SIM2 Max D driver continues to help you with your slice thanks to the prominent draw bias, while also offering forgiveness. You used to get one or the other in the olden days, but the SIM family has overcome that design flaw. If you’re looking to hit the golf ball straighter and farther, you’ll find the TaylorMade SIM2 Max D driver’s oversized club head helps you do just that.
