TaylorMade SIM Max Irons have been released as part of the Shape In Motion family for 2020 with game improvement the big selling point.
TaylorMade have managed to extract even more performance from their premium irons with the promise of “explosive distance, enhanced feel and a sweet sound” from the Max irons.
The key design element is the Speed Bridge, the strengthening bar sitting across the cavity which now extracts more distance than in any previous model.
What TaylorMade say:
“We pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of golf club design so that you may find greater joy in the game and better on-course performance. After all, we’re golfers just like you.
“How many distance irons can say they have their own sound engineer? With an improved Speed Bridge and ECHO Damping System for better sound and feel, we went further than we thought possible to bring you a distance iron that feels better than anyone thought possible.
“Explosive distance, enhanced feel and a sweet sound…What more could you ask for? A more refined Speed Bridge™ puts SIM Max a step above its predecessor.
“The ECHO Damping System expands across the entire face from heel to toe, giving you forged-like feel in a distance iron.”
TaylorMade SIM Max Irons
The SIM Max irons replace the M6 irons as the leading product from TaylorMade, and great strides have been made in the design process.
The Speed Bridge is the major feature of the design, and it has been improved upon from previous models to add even more distance on longer irons.
The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket, a slot in the sole of the iron club head in the 4-8 irons, also combines with the Speed Bridge to provide maximum stability and impressive ball speeds.
The face features the ECHO Damping System for pure sound and feel, and it now expands across the entire face from heel to toe. The end result is that you get near forged iron feel from the cavity backs.
The face itself has been made 17% thinner than the M6 to help improve that feel, but also to offer more forgiveness than before.
TaylorMade SIM Max OS Irons
The Max OS Irons are oversized – yes that is what the OS stands for! You get all the same technology but what is the difference between the Max and Max OS irons?
The simple answer is that the Max OS is wider and taller, offering a much more confident look for golfers standing over the ball.
The Max OS is 1mm taller in both the heel and toe, and 3mm wider at the sole. The lofts in the OS version are also stronger to help increase distances across the bag.
