It would be awesome if going forwards the original forum on a club release was limited to discussion of testing results and specs of the club ordered by members, and a second forum was created for peo

Given that the average WRXer swings at 135mph with a 1.52 smash factor I would say their swings generate more heat than any carbon jet is capable of making. With that said Taylormade probably had to d

We’ve got pics.....we’ve got teasers...now we need to know about this customization talk and the new tech.  I keep coming back to Wunder saying he’s excited about this driver.  I’ve said it before but he and Ian Fraser are the guys I “trust” the most with reviews.  They seem to be pretty immune to hype and really look at comparative data and performance vs the oohs and ahhs.

Interesting to see both DJ and Morikawa in the SIM2 Max to start the year.  DJ not so much of a surprise but Morikawa was in the SIM all last year as DJ went back and forth

Can’t wait to see how it performs! Just bought a SIM Max D this week because I got a great price on it, but no problem flipping it if the SIM 2 is significantly better!

It could be them just testing them. Dj had a speeder in one pic and ventus in another. Or it could just be a photo shoot lol

Nothing like "ringing" in the new year with some new gear.

 

Custom hydro-dipped aluminum back pieces? That would be a pretty easy "customization" for colors, patterns, themes.... heck, even camo!

Was pretty interesting to see DJ bring his new driver over to JT on the range to let him check it out.  (Golf Channel) This one had the Ventus in it.

Pretty sure that was just for the photo shoot. If you look at practice round pics for the Sentry TOC, it looks like Collin has a 10.5 SIM2 (non-max) in play

Interesting if it’s the 10.5, he played the SIM in 8* all last year.

All this posting is killing me.  I’m torn between the SIM & SIM 2.  Currently gaming a SIM Max but just wanted to try something a bit more fade biased.  Soo nervous that they knocked the fade bias out of the new SIM 2. Ugh need to get some reviews out here 

For what it’s worth, the Fully Equipped podcast this morning was talking about their club testing days and they saw fade bias in the SIM2 throughout many different testers.

No surprise. TM has been fade biased since at least the M line. There was no indication that they changed that when the pics came out. Also why i wonder if they'll offer weight kits to toy with CoG. The front and back weights are on opposite sides of the center line so CoG adjustability is still there, just not as easy. Want to offset fade bias...put a heavier weight in the front heel port...

Hello all.

 

If at all possible, I was wondering if any of the  "knowledgeable ones" could answer a question about the weights in the SIM2? For the ability to adjust SW in my current SIM I was able to change the sliding weight with an aftermarket M5 weight to get the SW to where I wanted. And with my SIM fairway, was able to change the small weight as the pitch/thread was compatible to what's out there in the aftermarket. Noticing that the SIM2 (driver & FW) has a SIMilar looking weight in the head (sorry).

Wanted to know if it is the same type of weight (length,pitch/thread) of what is in the SIM Fairway? I don't have access to a tour van and I enjoy building my own clubs and have my own SW scale. My only option has been the aftermarket as I like a heavier feeling driver - D6/7 and fairway - D5/6.

 

Not sure if it's been discussed and I know for a fact that I'm going to bag them.... the HO in me is strong and has no boundaries =( Just trying to prep for the tinkering that is to come.

 

Thank you in advance for any info you can provide and happy new year!

whatever the shape and specs of the new weights are, rest assured you can buy one on eBay for about $10 in 6-8 weeks after the driver is officially released. The aftermarket ones are virtually identically and fit perfectly. It never fails! 😂

I don't doubt that at all! In fact, that's where all my weights come from currently for my SIMs. But I'm hoping to be one of the first on my block gaming the SIM2 so I'd hate to have to lead tape it or tip weight it for 6-8 weeks until the aftermarket responds. 

 

But the pic mrmikeac just posted is music to my earrss...er....eyes! Have 3 or 4 of these weights already so now I'm even more stoked! Cocked, locked and ready to rock!

 

Game on!!

 

Thanks for the info fellas!!

Ha!!!  Look at the weight in that max.  It’s the old school RBZ weight...sure looks like Swing-weighting these will be a breeze.

2 direct quotes off the TaylorMade Tour Article just released that a lot of you will like to hear - both in reference to Collin Morikawa's switch to Sim2Max Driver and Sim2 Rocket 3...

 

“But because the face is deeper on new model, he really started peppering shots off the center and picking up speed and distance. Those were gains he couldn’t give up.”

 

"Collin played the rocket model in the original SIM, as well. The new SIM2 features a smaller 170cc head, which he prefers for added workability and a sleek look at address."

 

Interesting he also dropped the long neck Juno and is gaming the Spider FCG this week.
