    So much looking forward to putting this up against my M5. For ME, it seems like they combined some elements I needed.

    The regular SIM is a CANNON. I did testing over the weekend and the SIM is in the bag. Clearly in the bag. I didn't save the M5 data on trackman so I can only go from memory but the smash was much higher. The spin can down a touch and carry numbers were much better for me. I went back and forth and it was obvious.

    The SIM Max was a spinner for me. I could calm it down.

    The sound hits the mark as well. Great launch.

    In my first testing, the sim is much better than the M5. I am not sure it is better than the epic flash, or mavrik but it is good. I like the color of this more than the mav.

    The SIM is a low spin monster at 9* setting and a stiff shaft!

    Is it safe to assume the Ventus Blue shaft in the SIM Max is a made for TM version? I noticed the specs listed are different than that on Fujikura's website.

    Thank you for the comparison pics to the previous models. Looking forward to see how the trailing rear weight (cap) works as far as adjustability.

    Anyone wondering if the trailing edge will make divots on the ground for steeper swingers?

    Why the **** would Fujikura sell out the Ventus name like that? I don't get it

    M G S says no velocore at all and no MR70 at all.

    Not remotely a Ventus.

    Max D looks like a DEEEP Faced driver but of course they ruin the best looking head by making it Draw Bias....The Face height of the regular was a big turn off for me.

    Boo!! I didn’t expect them to put a real ventus but cmon why put a watered down version with the same paint job? Put a real deal shaft in even if it’s a cheaper shaft. Last thing I want to do is buy a shaft after spending $500. Oh well will wait till I can get a head only then

    That makes sense to not confuse the consumer from aftermarket model. I imagine the Ventus blue will look stunning with the new SIM heads.

    9.0. I normally have to set the loft -1* but I didn't with the SIM. I only have one session with the SIM but it was remarkably better than the M5 for me.

    Yeah I dont get it, all I can think of is MONEY. I really like Fuji shafts especially the PRO line...

    I hope there's a logo or difference somewhere so we can tell which is which. I would hate to see these 'made for' shafts being mixed in with the real ones on ebay in a few months and itll be a free for all.
