Sim Driver Review
These are individual reviews of the GolfWRXers trip to The Kingdom Tester. Rob “osubuckeyes691 Let me start with this. SIM is great. It’s not a magical 30 yards like everyone is talking about here. It comes down to being fit. This is a good thing. I would be surprised if SIM could not produce slightly higher numbers than other games.
My current set up is a Callaway Epic Flash SZ Double Diamond with a Fuji Ventus Black 6x. I have a combination of low, low and high. I live in the low to mid 170s ball speed with spin sometimes getting up to 2700 2800. Drives I hit well, spin around 2100. My big miss is a large push slice.
But it is good, and with a proper fitting I’d be shocked if you couldn’t find at least slightly better numbers with SIM over any gamer you have. -Rob I ended up being fit in to a SIM 9* with the new KBS Tour Driven 70 Category 5. This shaft is really fascinating. While it is difficult to express, the shaft has a great feel. Spin dropped to about 2400 on my miss right and really, that’s what I was hoping would happen. The thing I was looking for was something that would not lose me 30 yards if I failed to hit it. It helped to straighten out my miss. Huge advantage for me. Knowing that I’m a 120-pound swinger, it was impossible for me to carry 20 yards. SIM enabled me to decrease my miss, which was exactly what I needed.
Here is a link to his post in the forums.
Will fillwelix: Tester Perry was a great guy to work with. We talked about how my misses are and what we were looking forward to from the fitting.
I usually don’t have a problem with distance so I told him the biggest thing I was looking for was a tighter dispersion. Trackman numbers are not available yet, however, my tracker showed me that I was average 110 club head speed, 160 ball speed, and 270 to 275 carry. Total, it was 285-290. It was OK to launch a little high, but it worked well for spin.
This was a seriously powerful thing. While the club’s head speed rose only about 1 or 2-MPH, launch and spin were both incredible as was ball speed. I topped out at 170 ball speed, which I had never gotten before. Will and I tried out the Ventus Black 6x 10.5 SIM. He gave us some tips on how to set it up, as my AOA was about 4 or 5 degrees higher. The thing was just incredible. While my club head speed climbed only about 1 to 2 MPH, the launch and spin as well as ball speed were phenomenal. The highest I have ever clocked was 170 balls per hour. The total range of 295-309 was 315-315 – 320. The Kingdom’s driving range was reached by one shot.
Taylormade Sim Driver Verdict
I wouldn’t have thought that the SIM would make the best model, but it was a great choice. My lower swing speed meant that the spin could sometimes drop too low.
But the SIM Max truly impressed me when I failed to catch one. I didn’t get a high spinning shot of over 3000rpm and therefore my distance did not drop.
This range’s middle driver was not expected to produce such good results without having to change settings to reduce spin. Without affecting spin, the Inertia Generator was certainly a benefit.
Due to the position of the Inertia Generator and its shape, swing speeds were not increased. I have yet to be convinced that 20° angle is the best for an inertia-generator. It may have been proven at TaylorMade or in the “in-the slot” club, but it’s not a universally accepted method of swinging the clubs. I won’t be able to say if we all get the same benefits.
Taylormade Sim Driver Review – What a Game-Changing Shape!
Paul Club Reviews Review Golf Product Reviews. No Comments. In this review, we’ll be looking at the TaylorMade SI driver.
SIM expands on the M5, the Speed Injected Twist Face and features an entirely new asymmetric sole.
To improve aerodynamics at critical points of the swing, the shape is combined with an improved Inertia Gene to enhance speed.
However, the SIM claims to be a major game. But how does it actually work? Comparing it with the previous versions of this SIM, how does it perform? It is it worthwhile to have in your bag?
Read on to find out what you need to know to make an informed purchase.
Taylormade Sim Driver focuses on Controlling Spin and Adjustability
TaylorMade SIM driver TaylorMade SIM (Shape In Motion) is one of the three 2020 TaylorMade drivers. It focuses on controlling spin and dialling shot bias. The SIM MAX driver focuses more on forgiveness and their driver Max D SIM on draw-bias.
TaylorMade’s SIM Driver is all about aerodynamics. By combining an asymmetrical sole with proven technology such as speed injected twistface, multi-material carbon crown and speed injected twist-face, TaylorMade creates a driver which focuses on increasing clubhead velocity through the downswing.
TaylorMade explains that SIM driver SIM allows the player to personalise and adapt their flight characteristics. This is possible by creating +/– 20 yards draw fade bias using Sliding Weight Technology. The SIM driver SIM also has a single 10gweight. For players who want to be more controllable and manageable, it has a face that is slightly smaller than SIM Max D or SIM Max D.
Taylormade Sim Driver Review, Photos And Video: Clubtest 2020
For ClubTest 2020, we tested and reviewed 28 new drivers to help you find the right one for your game. These are the TaylorMade Sim driver’s results.
Prices: 549/BUY NOW Lofts 8@, 9@ and 10.5@. Our view: To get the most out of drivers’ heads, creativity is key. It also takes some extremely smart engineers. Looking at TaylorMade’s shiny SIM (Speed in Motion), it’s clear that the company’s braintrust has been busy finding new ways to capture more speed while doing so in a way that appeals to golfers who crave adjustability and control. To improve your clubhead speed, a speed-inducing inertia generator (located in sole) has been paired with an aerodynamic profile. What separates SIM from the other two models in the line is a 10-gram sliding weight that creates 20 yards of draw-fade bias to optimize ballflight. The driver features a smaller face than Max D or Max D. However, the fifth-generation carbon composite crown, and Twist Face technology make it difficult to notice a significant difference when it comes speed.
SIM is a combination of low spins and excellent carry numbers that gives it first-rate launch characteristics. Even with a smaller face profile, the driver still ranked near the top in overall (high speed) and high toe (both speeds) forgiveness. You can even choose to use a fade as your primary shot. Even better.
ClubTester’s Take (+1-hdcp: This club is a 787. Robot’s assessment: High swing speed players will rate this club’s carry and forgiveness scores near the top. Amazing forgiveness is also available for those in the middle speed range.
We have to admit, the name SIM doesn’t quite have the powerful ring to it like the M-Series did, but the aesthetics of the SIM drivers certainly make up for it.
This new SIM family’s design is amazing. As we mentioned in our video review, the SIM seems to be growing on you as you use it.
We love it at address. Contrasting with the carbon crown, the chalk-white top line looks great and is a wonderful contrast.
TaylorMade is a top-performing car company when it comes down to driver performance.
Although the Inertia Generator was slightly bent, it did increase my club speed a little and both SIM Max and SIM Max gave me very encouraging numbers.
In the SIM driver you have a low spinning driver that produced a penetrating ball flight, while the SIM Max gave me a little more spin and a higher ball flight.
The SIM Max was definitely more forgiving, but it was my favourite driver out of the two as it still gave me the distance I was out of a big stick.
Taylormade Sim 2 Driver Review
Are you ready to hit it longer and straighter in 2021? You’re probably looking for the most powerful drivers available on the market, and you’ve likely found the TaylorMade SIM2 Series.
The new year has seen these drivers make quite the splash. It’s clear why, as you will see after reading the review. The trust of some prominent players in the game, like Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson or John Rahm are all testament to its reliability.
The SIM 2 became a huge hit in 2020, but the everyday golfer wasn’t able to get it quite yet. It’s now available for purchase by the general public, and is already a huge hit with golfers. To help you select the right driver for your game, this review will break down all the technical specifications and details of these drivers.
TaylorMade has created a new, special driver.
Yes, it’s quite a lot… The SIM driver will be replaced from 2020. This was very popular. As TaylorMade said, “First we reshaped the driver, then we reconstructed it. The driver was completely rebuilt from the ground up in order to offer forgiveness as well as distance. “The SIM2 Max Driver – The Tee Box is Yours” Features
Speed Injected Twist Face Technology: Heel and toe shots are about to get a lot better. With the twist technology you can have straighter hits on any off-center hit and speedier shots.
This is why this driver is so unique. Precision-milled aluminum is used to enhance power and forgiveness.
There have been no significant improvements to models in the past.
In 2020 the SIM and SIM Max drivers were released. They are next on the same path as the previous year’s M drivers. Speed injected twist faces technology and the MOI soleweight are still available. However, this year it has been applied slightly differently. While the SIM Max is our main focus, it is very comparable to the SIM Max with smaller faces and greater adjustability.
We were immediately struck by the great design of this driver. This driver’s head is a lot more modernized than its predecessor. Additionally, it features a unique combination of metallic and dark colors that create an attractive design.
TaylorMade says that their driver delivers more power and is better than ever. They also claim that the single weight has been optimized to increase its MOI. The idea is that the swing will be more aerodynamic, thus faster. It has also been designed to offer slightly higher launch conditions than previous models.
TaylorMade was happy with how M driver’s faces worked and no significant changes have been made in the speed injected technology to twist the heads. As we’ve come to expect, the ball rockets off the face, and it’s been specially designed to help you out when you strike the ball on parts of the face which usually causes problems. It sounds great.
TaylorMade is able to raise ball speeds, which can’t be denied. But it’s possible that their returns are declining. It is a fantastic driver. The sole weight change seems to have made some improvements, however, it may still feel small to the majority of players.
TaylorMade appears to be an innovator in the field of golf club technology. With its smart MOI weight and speed-injected faces, the SIM Max is an excellent driver. Those who play at a high level – who think they would benefit from just that little bit of extra MOI and clubhead speed – may find great success with this club.
Higher handicappers can also join in the fun. The clubface may be optimized for speed, but it’s also been built to be as forgiving as possible, and the carefully placed CG will help you to get the right amount of loft.
You don’t need to make a big change if you are currently using the TaylorMade 5 or 6 – but you can be sure that the SIM Max is an excellent piece of kit.
