The TaylorMade SIM driver is the new release for 2020 and the Shape In Motion driver is set to make a big impression.
The SIM will replace the TaylorMade M5 and M6 drivers as the leading ranges, and it features three separate designs – the SIM, Max and Max D drivers.
TaylorMade SIM Driver Design
The concept behind the TaylorMade SIM range is all about generating more speed and less drag. And that come courtesy of the unique sole design and a raised crown, which is made from ultra-light weight chromium carbon.
TaylorMade have come up the sole design to help eradicate the drag during the last three feet of the downswing – something they feel is the most critical phase when it comes to maximising speed.
There is also an Inertia Generator feature in the design to help lower the CG and help promote a higher launch and increased forgiveness.
The Twist Face Technology that first appeared in the M5 and M6 drivers is also incorporated in the SIM drivers.
All three SIM driver designs are fully adjustable through a 10g sliding weight, which offers golfers up to 20 yards of adjustability to allow for fade or draw bias.
The SIM Max option has a larger face as well as a heavier Inertia Generator to afford golfers more forgiveness than the SIM design.
The face on the SIM Max D is the biggest of all three, while the name comes from the fact it is the draw-biased option.
SIM Driver Verdict
Although they carry an attractive and distinctive white and black colour theme, the SIM drivers may well divide opinion with not all golfers likely to be taken by the sole design that TaylorMade have created.
What they will like, however, is the performance with even more performance extracted to improve on the already impressive M5 and M6 drivers
The sliding weight gives plenty of options when it comes to weight balance and bias, and the SIM drivers can be adjusted to suit the game of all standards of golfers.
The features have improved performance and golfers opting to buy one of the three SIM designs will see gains off the tee.
