Taylormade Sim 2 Vs Callaway Mavrik Irons Comparison And Review
Taylormade are a name that have been around the game forever while Cobra have been making steady progress in the last decade to become the household name that they are today.
In honesty both of these irons are similar in their construction and what they promise golfers, which unapologetically is ball speed and distance. With golf irons becoming so much better with every iteration, both of these clubs are also extremely forgiving and can even be classified as game improvement irons, useful for golfers of any level.
These are the latest iterations from both companies so we are expecting big things in today’s breakdown.
Taylormade Sim 2 Max Overview
The Sim 2 irons have a tough act to follow, the original sim max irons are some of the best I have ever used in terms of feel and performance.
The big difference in the Sim2 irons is the removal of the speed bridge which is now replaced by the Multi Material Cap Back which aims to maximize distance accuracy and forgiveness.
The echo dampener is fully submerged within the club head and max the club feel smooth even on mishits.
The sole of the club is thick as you would expect for distance an the weighting in the heel and toe provide a larger sweet spot along with the speed thru slot low in the face.
The progressive inverted cone technology also provides and expansion of the massive sweet spot on the clubs
These are perfect for high and mid handicappers and their performance is second to none.
Cobra Radspeed Irons Overview
With the big guns like Bryson Dechambeau now on board with Cobra, they have pulled all the stops with the new Radpseed irons.
The clubs have similar characteristics to the Sim 2’s with the multi material badge covering the cavity in the back to dampen any unwanted vibrations.
Thick soles and superior turf interaction make the clubs perfect for distance and high launching shots.
The tungsten weighting in the heel and toe of the club is placed with Artificial Intelligence and progressive, with the clubs becoming more workable in the shorter irons around the green.
These clubs come in one length and standard progressive lengths, with extra emphasis on COG for the one length irons.
For me the Sim 2 Irons are simply the better choice for high and mid handicappers and lower handicappers as well.
I would recommend every body to go with the Sim 2’s for almost everybody unless you have a specific reason to go with the Radspseed, you like one length clubs for instance.
