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

Interested to hear your take on it as it sounds like you played the Sim 1 previously? I put this thing in play earlier this week for a quick 9 and actually liked it. I haven't gamed a TM driver for at least 6-7 years and have been predominately Callaway. I didn't care for the Sim 1 based on sound and feel off the face. However, the Sim 2 just sounded/felt better to me. Also, when hitting it I felt my ball seemed to just keep rising and going with such a great trajectory. Hard to explain, but I may actually be gaming a TM driver this year (once I get a comparable shaft in the head to really give it a head to head comparison).

If it works why change? My reason is everything has a limit.

Drivers 2-3 seasons 

irons 4-5 seasons

wedges 2 seasons depending on use 

60* every season 

Thats just my way.

 

I am definitely not looking to change out the driver at this point. The 3 wood though may be in trouble! I like your logic for equipment upgrades. I really need to stop changing my stuff out so dang much!

Mines pretty similar but a little less. 
Driver 2 seasons

3 Wood I go through like 3 a season because I can’t ever seem to find “the one” 

Irons 3 Seasons 

Wedges 2 Seasons 

60* At least every season but realistically I go through 2 a season.

If Steele can hang on, the Sim 2.0 will get it's 1st win this weekend. 

I noticed he had it in the bag a few holes ago.

 

It's a big if, he's been leaking oil the last few holes.

An Epic win for Callaway and Kevin Na!

Find the right shafts then you can switch heads every couple season without major changes.

That’s a key point. Get fitted then if you must upgrade every year just find a head only for the new model for sale here in WRX or EBay or wherever and save yourself some money. That’s what I did with the Mavrik. I got fitted for the EF SZ and found a head only Mavrik SZ and swapped it out. After selling the head for the EF SZ I was only out $150.

I think I’ve found the holy grail shaft! I’m having some amazing results with the 2019 Aldila tour green with graphene. Long straight low spin bombs! And the shaft feels smooth! I need to find a backup for it though. They are hard to find for sure.

Good luck. I play the Syngery green proto which I think is the proto of your shaft and I've been looking for a 65 TX to mess around with and haven't had any luck. I keep hoping to find something newer and better but this things combination of feel and performance are hard to beat.

Yes - it’s not better than 1.0

Similar - maybe more consistent spin across the face 

Fair enough but there are still new SIMs to be had if I don’t like it.

Face Depth alone will make better for me.

Plus with my discount & by time I sell the stock shaft & sell my hotmelted sim on EBay I won't lose a dollar

 

 

Also FYI Preorder are TOMORROW....I got my invite to a private event at Golf Galaxy & it CLEARLY states you can order on the 19th after your demo.

Hit them this weekend, and here’s my subjective rankings, heads were all set to as close to 10* as possible and Rogue White used for 3/5 heads and then RDX Black for the TSI3 and 2.0 SIM:

 

Performance
TSi3
Max LS
2.0 Standard
425 LST

425Max

 

Feel
Max LS
TSI3 
425 LST

2.0 Standard

425Max

 

Sound
Max LS
TSI3
2.0 Standard
425 LST

425Max

 

Spin

Max LS
2.0 Standard
425 LST

425Max
TSI3

 

Will end up in a TSI3 to start the season and/or possible Max LS.

The demo cart at my club was switched over to the 2.0 product. I took out a 2.0 with a HZRDUS Smoke RDX black. On paper this shaft should be a slam dunk for me. It wasn’t so great. I couldn’t square it up, missed both directions. Just another lesson why fitting is so important. The 2.0 head has some potential though.

That said, its hard to argue with how good you can make this thing look. Looks like TM doing the discounted Ventus same as Ping. Interesting why that seems to be the case these days.
