What TaylorMade say about the SIM 2 Woods and Fairways:

“When we brought back V Steel and combined it with SIM, our goal was simple. The lowest CG of any fairway we’ve ever created.

“In 2021, we’ve done it again. With a lower CG, you can launch it higher with SIM2 Titanium, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max D.

“Multi-material construction and efficient weight distribution on the sole of the club deliver ultra-low CG for explosive distance, high launch and low spin.”

TaylorMade SIM 2 Ti Fairway Review

The SIM 2 Titanium woods get the name because it is the only club with a Zatech Titanium head, and this model in the most compact of the three with a aerodynamic 170cc head.

The smaller club head features V steel sole plate as it returns to TaylorMade fairway woods in the latest design, which has been created for better players and tour stars.

At just 80g, the woods are incredibly light and produces impressive club head speeds and ball speeds as a result for maximum distance from the fairway, rough or tee box.

The Ti fairways have a low CG for a mid-launch and a penetrating low spin ball flight.

The woods also have a Thru-Slot Speed Pocket behind the Zatech Ti Twist Face to help produce powerful ball strikes to eek out every yard of distance.

The SIM 2 Max is available in lofts of 15 degrees and 18 degrees. Each wood has 2 degrees of adjustability.

TaylorMade SIM 2 Max Fairway Review

The SIM 2 Max Fairway has a larger club head than the Titanium model at 190cc, inspiring more confidence over the ball.

The return of the V Steel sole design is also in the Max model, providing more heel and toe relief to improve forgiveness, which also comes from the C300 steel club face.

The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket provides flexibility behind the club face to generate added ball speed even on off centre strikes.

This model has a low CG and generates a higher launch angle and ball flight than the Titanium woods for more carry through the air, but importantly offers less spin too.

The SIM 2 Max is available in lofts of 15 degrees, 18 degrees, 21 degrees and 24 degrees. Each wood has 2 degrees of adjustability.

TaylorMade SIM 2 Max D Fairway Review

The Max D woods are the draw bias version for golfers looking to eliminate a left-to-right fade shot shape.

The weight in this model is placed towards the heel and is ideal for golfers with a fade or looking to even out a slice.

The Max D fairway woods have the largest head of the three models at 195cc, but also boast the lowest CG of any TaylorMade woods for a higher ball flight from tee to green.

The higher MOI, as a result of the heel weighting, ensures there is plenty of forgiveness from a large club C300 steel club face to help add distance to your game.

The Max D also features the returning V Steel sole plate and the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket to help extract the maximum distance.

The SIM 2 Max D is available in 16 degrees, 19 degrees and 22 degrees. Each wood has 2 degrees of adjustability.
