I mean the Sim had a much more noticeable fade bias and DJ hates seeing the ball turn over. Probably needs to do some more work to get the launch conditions dialed with a Sim 2 head. 

 

I think this is canceled out by Brooks picking up some decent ball speed and smash factor with the SIM 2 vs. his old M5 at the Phoenix Open and the reviews by average golfers showing some crazy forgiveness pickups.  

Yeah, he smoked one off of 17 I think yesterday.  Total distance was 359 but looked like it carried 345ish.  I get that the desert air is thin, but that's still crazy.

Same here. I only saw 1 guy that claimed his is due to arrive Friday. 

My local golf store says they will have them in stock on the 15th.  We shall see.

It's a simple case of Markup and Bulk Buy vs Individual supply.

 

I'd be very very surprised if any of the shafts that are sold individually cost more than $100 to produce....the difference is how many you are buying....

 

Any of the OEM's that want a shaft can commit to buy hundreds of thousands in one go...hence they get them cheaper...maybe $70/$80 per shaft....where does the supplier make their money back....by charging a massive markup on the ones they sell individually to give the impression of high cost/value.

 

Add to this a custom paint job etc and you enhance the perceived value and can therefore charge more.

 

HZRDUS have their 'Hand Crafted' versions which whilst they may cost slightly more do not justify the additional markup but again it is something they can charge 'extra' for and some people fall for it!

 

It's been happening this way in manufacturing/retail for years.

 

The Smoke's are the Real Deal!!

 


Thanks for the summary! This makes a lot of sense. I just wish they were more transparent up front. 
 

From Taylormade, “Yeah if you look apples to apples, specs are the same on both shafts. They just refer to them as exotic shafts as it’s limited edition and a lot of people collect shafts”

My SIM2 shipped yesterday.  It’s a warranty replacement for my SIM.  They are sending it with the Kuro Kage Silver 5th gen 60s. I was hoping for the AV Raw Blue in the same flex. I’ve never gotten along with the Kuro Kage line. Fortunately, I have plenty of golf shafts to choose from already.

From my understanding the MySim2, (custom colorway build) is only available via TM's online site. I would of loved to of ordered it from my fitter, but he never got back to me regarding it.

One of the local chains here in So Cal (RD Golf) are doing MySim2 orders (minus their 90 day return policy which is understandable since these are so personalized)

Im not sure on ETAs but got my order in and dug up my old 510tp to game for fun until the SIM2 arrives

Went my father's fitting the other day and thought I'd share what I saw which I thought was interesting. He has 93 MPH club head speed and always had a little trouble with getting the extra carry/height. Hits the driver around 240 yards. Had a Titleist 915 previously and he tested the SIM2 Max, Titleist TSI2 and Ping G425. His 915 was 10.5 degree but the fitter increased the loft in the SIM2 and G425 to 12 degree head and The TSI to 11 degree head. Using a Tensei CK Blue (which is what he has in his 915) shaft for every head the SIM2 Max was getting him 10 yards extra carry with similar dispersion across the board vs TSI2 and G425. Well more than that vs his 915 which we can agree wasn't a good fit. We've seen the pros lofting up with the SIM2 but just thought I'd share a bit of a different scenario with what I saw in a 90-95mph club head speed and the benefits of lofting up. Lofting up to the 12* head and spin was still 2275. Easy winner and walked out ordering the SIM2 Max.

That makes two of us. I’ve got the cart loaded with trade ins, a 10.5 head with the Black 6X, and a 3 and 5 wood.  Woods ship in Feb driver in May, suppose I will wait now as well.

It looks like they updated their shipping dates. I had been seeming the same thing about May for the ventus shaft. Must have gotten more in stock.

Thanks, it was a sign that I should just hang on and see. My G410 LST was amazing last night at the range again.

 

Its the 3 wood I am more interested in right now.

3wood is the star of the show for me. I think you have the right mentality here.

What was his average gain on the 915?

 

I'm still playing 915 but I want to upgrade this year to SIM2, TSI or Ping G425. Once things open up here I will go for a proper testing and fitting.

14 yards more carry on average with the SIM2 Max vs 915. Excluded an outlier poor shot with both clubs for that data too.
