What we say...

TaylorMade have reinvented the V Steel design in their new SIM Max and SIM Max D Fairway Woods

The iconic V Steel design has been reinvented with the new SIM family of fairway metals. Advanced shaping combines with a V Steel™ sole to improve turf interaction and playability from various lies.

A more rounded leading edge improves the club’s initial contact with the turf, while the V Steel sole further raises heel and toe sections of the sole away from the ground and improves versatility. These design features combine to significantly reduce turf contact area in SIM, SIM Max and SIM Max D fairways, reducing ground friction which can positively influence both clubhead speed and ball speed.

New fairway woods never quite get the same level of hype as new drivers. Golfers don't update them nearly as often, so if you're a TaylorMade fan of a certain age you might remember the original V-Steel fairways from 2004. Some of you might even still be using them. V-Steel was a popular model, and TaylorMade have reinvented their v-shaped soles for the SIM Max.

TaylorMade say it means SIM Max, with its multi-materialconstruction, launches shots a yard higher than the M6 fairway, making them the highest launching fairway on the market.

While the SIM fairway has a titanium head, both the new SIM Max and SIM Max D are steel with carbon-fibre crowns.

Both Max models come with Twist Face and Speed Pockets, along with ultra- strong and flexible C300 steel faces, all to ensure explosive ball speeds and distance. TaylorMade say it is designed for higher launch and peak trajectories, with extremely long distance and improved playability.

TaylorMade SIM Max D Fairway Wood

The oversized 190cc SIM Max D has been optimised for forgiveness and golfers seeking a draw-bias design. Like SIM drivers, the fairway woods feature progressive head sizes to provide greater forgiveness to the players who need it the most.

SIM Max D fairways gain up to 10 yards of draw bias (the driver gives 10-15 yards) thanks to lighter, higher launching shafts and a little extra of loft over the standard SIM Max. It all helps players with lower swing speeds launch shots for maximum carry from the turf.
