The SIM 2 release sure doesn’t seem to be generating any buzz here on the forum. Interesting...
Especially given that the SiM2 lineup appears to be selling well. I'd want to try it out for sure. Looks very cool.

Has anyone looked into the shaft options with the SIM2 hybrid? I almost bought one today, but the shaft options might have factored into pausing.

I have the Sim2 9*, Sim2 Max 3W & 5W and Sim2 3H coming. It's going to be a long 3 weeks till delivery. Pretty excited about going back to TM clubs.

I currently have the M5 3 wood which I love and I’ve been longing to get back to a Taylormade driver but I’ve just hated the feel since they came out with the m3. I set up a fitting for the Sim2 hybrid and I have very intention of pulling the trigger. I’m also going to try the new Sim2 drivers and see if they can take my money

That SiM2 hybrid is compact and looks great!

Just played my first three rounds with the regular Sim2 and I agree. It’s a very strange feeling but when you hit it well the ball seems to fly forever

It almost feels like the head is lagging behind and moving really slow, similar to swinging a sledgehammer. Oddly enough I picked up club head speed

So I had my fitting yesterday and I got fit into the SIM2 Max hybrid 22 and 25 in what basically is my 4 and 5 iron spot. 6-G will be P790.

How do those that have used the SIM2 Max versus original SIM Max rescue find them? Any huge differences or improvements? Similar style? Pros and cons of going with older version or should I just pony up for the new SIM 2 max?

I am considering the following:
- Update bag with 4h and 5h in SIM 2 Max
- Purchase 5h in SIM 2 Max and keep my 818 in the 4h for now
- Go with original SIM Max hybrids in 4h and 5h if they are similar. Can basically do used versions for both for same price as the SIM 2 new?

Do you still have the 5 in the P790? If so you could play that and just add a new SiM 2 Max 4 rescue. Then later on down the road get he 5 rescue if you feel you need it.

I am playing the Sim2 Max really enjoy hitting it. The sound to me is perfect. Only thing I don’t like is stock shaft offerings for it.

Just took my Sim 2 max d 3 wood out this weekend for the first . Absolutely the straightest and easiest fairway to hit of the deck I have ever hit . I had the the sim 2 max d last year a nice fairway but this year the the improved sole is fantastic . I fight a fade or slice with my swing the Sim 2 the seems to correct this more . Saying that I can work this 3 wood with a fade or draw or just point and shoot . Oh and the sound and feel are spot on . Love it .

April 3rd is when my Sim2 Driver, 3W, 5W and hybrid will be here. It can't get here soon enough. I'm so impatient.

Is there anyone seeing a performance difference in the fairways from last year's to this year's? My impression is there isn't much there but there's no videos on comparison and curious given the wait to get Taylor made clubs

The v sole has a much improved from the previous model much easier to hit of the deck . Seeing a bit higher ball flight . I would say the distance is roughly the same that said the consistency in strike makes it a better club.

I was really thinking that once Callaway threw out the 50% trade in offer on the new Epic woods that we would quickly see TM follow. Seeing as they have been a pretty reactionary company in recent years. As a matter of fact, I was hoping they would because I want to get some SIM2 Max action.

On me??? Why would you rely on me? You know I'm not reliable. :ROFLMAO: I'm surprised you don't have thoughts on them yet.

Just got my sim2 driver in... Man how Long are these things (physically).
Coming from a tour length speed zone this feels like I'm swinging a hockey stick. First swing I almost missed the ball off my heel completely.
