GOLF.com’s Take: Asked to describe the look of SIM2, our testers labeled them “futuristic,” “modern” and “fast.” And who can argue when there’s all that new-age carbon on the sole? While the drivers carry on the original SIM (Shape in Motion) name that excelled in 2020, the company has made a few big changes. One initially skeptical GOLF tester took notice of the improvements: “I tried to hit the original SIM last year, but this new one feels a million times more solid.”
The Details: TaylorMade combined proven technologies from recent years (TwistFace, Inertia Generator, speed-injected faces, thru-slots, carbon crowns) with all-new designs to make the drivers more forgiving. Most notably, a new sole plate is made entirely of carbon composite to save weight, and there’s a blue aluminum back ring that connects the rear sole to the crown. The pieces work together to drive weight back for better performance on mishits. The lineup consists of a fade-biased SIM2, ultra-forgiving SIM2 Max and the SIM2 Max D, designed to induce a draw.
