Our take: “I love the high launch.” With that simple statement, one of our testers summed up exactly what TaylorMade was striving for with its SIM2 fairways. While the overall look is comparable to the original SIM heads, our GOLF testers repeatedly commented on the higher trajectories they were seeing. “Even my mishits are towering — the ball just flies,” another tester said. “It feels lively and easy to hit off the ground.”

TaylorMade SIM2 Fairway Wood
The details: It’s no accident our testers saw noticeable height increases with the SIM2 fairways. That was by design. While continuing to evolve its versatile V-steel soles of last year, TaylorMade has redesigned the SIM2 heads to move weight lower to the ground for higher launch and more forgiveness. TaylorMade’s smaller and more workable SIM2 Titanium heads utilize 80-gram sole plates and ZATECH titanium faces, whereas the SIM2 Max fairways are designed with C300-steel faces and have bigger heads for increased accuracy and distance.
