Callaway Rogue Vs. Taylormade SIM 2 Driver Comparison And Review 2021
Whether you are team Taylormade or team Callaway, if you really want the best driver for your money, you have to put bias aside and look at the facts. However, we know not everyone has the time and discretionary income for a fitting.
So we want to offer you the next best thing. Join us as we go over the essential facts of the Callaway Rogue and Taylormade SIM 2 drivers in the following comparison overview.
Taylormade SIM 2 Driver Overview
The Taylormade SIM 2 continues in the same vein as the original SIM driver but with a cleaner, sleeker design.
The Taylormade SIM 2 driver still features an asymmetrical sole panel with a weight at the very end. However, the panel has been smoothed out to give this driver a cleaner downswing and a more traditional-looking head shape.
One of the biggest improvements Taylormade, well, made, in the SIM 2 driver is the front mass weighting. This gives a distance boost to an already long driver by reducing spin off the tee. On the other hand, this same feature makes the Taylormade SIM 2 a little difficult to work.
Taylormade tried to answer the lack of workability by fitting the SIM 2 with an adjustable hosel but with just 4 degrees of adjustability, you still don’t get to work this driver very much.
Callaway Rogue Driver Overview
The Callaway Rogue is a classic because it offers a good mix of workability, forgiveness and distance.
While the Callaway Rogue is not as long as the SIM 2; it did perform comparably in terms of forgiveness. The Variable Face Thickness face architecture is still viable for today’s beginners and high handicappers.
The lack of a face curvature and more balanced internal weighting also meant that the Rogue was more workable than the SIM 2 driver. To top it all off, the Callaway Rogue also has an adjustable hosel.
Overall, we would say that it is the better-balanced driver and would be a better choice for high to mid handicap players.
The Taylormade SIM 2 driver would certainly be a good choice for high handicappers who are having trouble producing straight shots that land on the fairway. It will also give new players easier distance.
The Callaway Rogue on the other hand would be best for high and mid handicap players looking for more versatility from the tee.
