PXG 0211 DC Vs. Taylormade SIM 2 Irons Comparison Overview
In case anyone was wondering the “DC” in PXG 0211 DC stands for DualCor. It refers to a soft polymer interior layer that helps to smooth out harsh vibration in these irons. Indeed, that was one obvious point of emphasis with these irons: a good feel.
Likewise, the Taylormade SIM 2 irons attempt to provide a better overall feel for beginner and mid handicap players. So which one did a better job? What about other performance aspects? Learn everything you need to know in our short comparison overview.
Taylormade SIM 2 Irons Overview
The Taylormade SIM 2 irons feature the Echo vibration damping system which gives them a feel beyond their price point.
The Echo system is actually a layer of polymer that spreads across multiple point in the face. It did give them a pretty good feel by suppressing harsh vibration – but not much else.
The SIM 2’s also feature a cap back design which bridges the heel and toe for more lateral stability.
The forgiveness of these irons was pretty impressive. It felt like the sweet spot shifted a bit as you work through the set but to points that were very helpful.
We were finding the sweet spot pretty effortlessly as we went down the line with these irons.
PXG 0211 DC Irons Overview
The PXG 0211 DC’s also use a polymer layer to smooth out vibration and improve sound.
Right away, we should say that the PXG 0211 DC had a more premium feel than the SIM 2’s. However, we can’t be sure if it’s because of the internal cushioning.
Both the PXG 0211 DC’s and the SIM 2’s use polymer for their internal cushioning so we’re inclined to say that the superior feel doesn’t come from the polymer.
Instead, we attribute it to the miraging steel face of the PXG 0211 DC irons. This material just felt like it gave more feedback and control – especially on approaches.
The PXG 0211 DC also gave distance comparable to the Taylormade SIM 2’s.
In terms of forgiveness, it was also a tie. These 2 iron sets are similar in so many ways that in the end, the decision ultimately came down to feel.
These 2 iron sets even cost almost the same – just around $800 for a complete set. However, the better feel of the PXG 0211 DC’s puts them over the top for us.
