What is the difference in the SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max D?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

The SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max D are two different models of drivers offered by TaylorMade. While they share some similarities, there are a few key differences that set them apart.

One noticeable difference is the size of the face. The SIM2 Max D driver has an “oversized” face, while the SIM2 Max has a “large” face. Although the distinction may seem subtle, it is evident upon closer inspection. The SIM2 Max D’s face is slightly larger than that of the SIM2 Max, giving it a slightly different aesthetic.

Another difference between the two models is the design of the clubhead. The SIM2 Max D features a draw-biased design, which means it is engineered to help golfers who tend to slice the ball. This design promotes a right-to-left ball flight for right-handed golfers, reducing the amount of slice on their shots. On the other hand, the SIM2 Max does not have this draw-biased design and is more neutral in terms of shot shape.

In terms of performance, the SIM2 Max D is intended to provide maximum forgiveness and distance for golfers with a tendency to slice. The draw-biased design helps to correct the slice and make it easier for golfers to hit straighter shots. The SIM2 Max, on the other hand, still offers forgiveness and distance but without the draw-biased design. It is more suited for golfers who already have a relatively straight ball flight and do not need additional help with shot shape.

Both drivers incorporate TaylorMade’s innovative technologies, such as the Twist Face and Speed Pocket, which aim to improve forgiveness and distance across the face. These technologies help to reduce the negative effects of off-center hits and increase ball speed for enhanced performance.

Ultimately, the difference between the SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max D comes down to the draw-biased design and slightly larger face of the Max D model. Golfers who struggle with a slice may benefit from the Max D’s draw bias, while those with a more neutral ball flight may prefer the standard Max model. It is important for golfers to try both drivers and see which one suits their game and shot shape preferences best.
