SIM2 Rescue/SIM2 MAX Rescue
There are the golf shirts Adidas makes to fit the uber-athletic Dustin Johnson. Then there are the ones Adidas makes for the mere mortals. Similarly, hybrids need to be designed differently for the two classes of golfers who use them. The standard SIM2 (above) is all about enhancing the skills of better players. It has a smaller head for more versatility and a penetrating iron-like ball flight. The shaft is shorter to allow for a heavier head so that extra mass can be reposi-tioned for the right amount of forgiveness. Furthermore, its adjustable hosel can adapt to different ball-flight needs. Conversely, the Max is larger front to back and heel to toe for optimal forgiveness and a higher launch. Still, every level of golfer wants more ball speed. That’s why both options in this line have sleek soles with a lower center section to promote clean turf interaction. This design feature also increases perimeter weighting for even more forgiveness. Best of all, each of these thin, high-strength steel faces is jet-fueled by an ingenious slot that cuts through the sole so that it flexes more freely. The slot extends well into the toe for extra speed over much of the face, especially effective with SIM2’s adjustable hosel. Read More >>

Has a great balance in swing weight, feels like an iron in your hand the way it cuts through the turf. Even the slimmer version is forgiving based on the numbers I was seeing.
Very solid feel throughout. The sound is very crisp but understated, which I like. Really confident with the Max and that slim strip of white on the topline mixed with the carbon fiber pattern.
Crisp, controlled sound. Shots took off and refused to slow down. I could play the Max and not need a fairway wood.
