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!

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

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.
