Our Review:

Known for their aerodynamically angled sole, the SIM drivers of last year changed how shape improves speed. This update of the SIM platform is a fundamental change in how that head is made. The goal is to increase forgiveness for three types of players through a construction that eliminates titanium from everywhere except the face and replaces it almost entirely with lightweight carbon fiber. This frees up more mass to be redistributed so that the low-spin (SIM2), mid-launch (SIM2 Max) or anti-slice (SIM2 Max·D) users get more bang at impact, wherever that impact might be. First, two carbon-fiber shells form the top and bottom to save weight. They are joined by a light, forged-aluminum ring that circles the perimeter and locks into a titanium cupface that has a variable thickness precisely milled in the back. Finally, the tungsten weight in the angled keel is heavier and farther back than before to stabilize off-center hits. The design features a more responsive sole slot and a resin injected behind the face to push the springlike-effect limits. Read more >>

Player Comments
  • low

    Ball just jumps off the face and really saw high clubhead speed, too. The sound resonates, but still nicely muted with some great feedback. Love the classic deep face.

  • mid

    Beautiful color scheme with blue, white and carbon fiber, could stare at it all day. Firmer feel and one of a kind sound, definitely some massive shots. Confident and want to go after it.

  • high

    The crisp graphics help the club look smaller and more nimble at address. Clean sound and feel. The club isn’t heavy but still felt meaty. I even saw higher swing speeds.
