Taylormade Sim 2 Vs Taylormade M6 Irons Comparison And Review

There is no doubt that Taylormade make some of the best irons and are some of the most frequently used clubs on tour and in the amateur game today.

This particular comparison is interesting because the Sim 2 is only 2 models newer than the M6 irons with both sets aimed at players looking for similar performance from their clubs, high and mid handicappers in the market for distance and forgiveness.

Taylormade M6 Irons Overview

When the M6 irons arrived on the scene only a couple of years back, they were the hottest property in the game, Stunning distance with an enhanced focus on forgiveness and consistency.

The club veers away from the standard cavity back with the speed bridge running along the back of the cavity, promoting stability throughout the club for enhanced distance and less vibrations.

The speed thru slot sits low on the face, extending the sweet spot lower on the club while Progressive Inverted cone technology expands the sweet spot higher on the face.

The soles are thick for distance but the clubs also interact well with the turf, especially with the shorter irons.

Taylormade Sim 2 Max Overview

Following on from the M6 would be a big enough task in itself but we can’t ignore that the Sim Max irons came after the M6’s and were fantastic clubs in every way.

The Sim 2 has done enough to improve on that performance slightly and they also pip the M6’s to the finish line in almost every category except price.

The main difference is the removal of the speed bridge replace with an all encompassing Cap Back which is more effective at holding the club together and delivering feel on top of distance and forgiveness.

The Echo Dampener is inside to deaden unwanted vibrations, the soles are thick for distance and the sweet spot is massive. The Sim 2 irons are like the M6’s just refined for slightly more performance is every category.

If you want to grab yourself a deal, go with the M6 irons and if you want the pinnacle of technology the Sim 2’s are where it is at.

The Sim 2’s also have superior feel and will be a perfect set of clubs for even lower handicap players.

Sim 2 Max – First Impressions

Immediately noticeable on these irons is that they look pretty similar to the Sim Max irons but the Cap Back technology does stand out as being more solid.

We weren’t expected much difference in performance either and turned out to be true as well, the Sim 2 Max are slightly longer and lower launching than their predecessor which shows an incremental improvement but nothing overly major to write home about.

The echo dampener and cap back does make these irons feel a good bit smoother in the shorter irons and you can really get a good command of the ball with the forged feeling face.

Thru slot and ICT technology ensure the sweet spot is large and playable and that is another feature that we enjoyed about these clubs.

Overall the clubs do mark an improvement over the Sim Max in terms of distance, feel and control and we recommend giving these clubs a shot before committing to a purchase, because the Sim Max are still competitive and may be available for a keener price.

Taylormade M6 – First Impressions

The Taylormade M6 irons represented a significant break through in the world of golf with the introduction of the speed bridge which adds stability, ball speed and smooth impacts, even on mishits.

The sweet spot on the M6 is massive, allowing you to hit it straight and far consistently.

While there is excellent forgiveness in the clubs, they are certainly built for ball speed and distance and that is the main reason for the speed bridge and the Speed pocket on the underside of the club and filling in the cavity on the ball.

The face is ‘Speed Injection’ for an amazing connection with the ball and better distance.

A deep undercut and low COG allow an easy launch and the High MOI of the irons maximizes speed and performance.

Still, one of the best iron sets on the market, for sure.
