I found the feel of the OG sim to be lacking. felt hollow and dead to me.    have not hit the sim2 

I say buy both with different shafts.   The GolfWRX solution is the best solution.

Feel is subjective for sure.  OG SIM is more like a twack.  Think aluminum baseball bat hitting a baseball.  What's confusing that that your sig show that the SIM 2 is your gamer and yet you haven't h

Imho, the SIM/SIM2 Max launch higher than the adjustable face versions. If you’re looking for height off the turf, I’d go Max with a shaft that pairs well with it. I mainly hit mine off the tee but it launched higher than the SIM2 I hit off the deck when testing.

Thanks for that...the search continues...

MAX version spin more and maybe launch a touch higher.  It's suited more for golfers who have trouble getting enough hang time and spin off the deck.  Off the tee, the SIM and SIM MAX work equally as well IMO.

Honestly both are great.  I gamed both of the OG SIM and OG SIM MAX.  Max was bigger and easier to launch.  Very good all around fairway wood.   I switched to the SIM to get the adjustable hosel to open the face.  
 

SIM2 is easier to launch than OG SIM.  The weight is farther back to help launch.  IMO it’s just about perfect.

Feel is subjective for sure.  OG SIM is more like a twack.  Think aluminum baseball bat hitting a baseball.  What's confusing that that your sig show that the SIM 2 is your gamer and yet you haven't hit the SIM 2 yet?

I just finished a round with my "new" SIM Ti 3 Wood, have previously gamed a SIM Max for 9 Months.

Same Shaft (Kiyoshi Black 75X) and I carry 3 Wood 250-265 Yards.

I found the the good hits on the TI to be much better and lower spinning than the Max, with the Max being more forgiving, especially on off center hits. 

Overall if you are ok with the difference in forgiveness, I would go with model which will deliver the right launch window for you
