Taylormade Sim 2 Vs Titleist T400 Irons Comparison And Review

Taylormade and Titleist are no strangers to competing with each other. The Taylormade Sim 2 and Titleist T400 are two of the newest and best irons produced by both company’s

Both are game improvement clubs that are characterized by being long and forgiving.

Titleist T400 Overview

Titleist are well known for making some of the best players irons in the world for advanced players.

The T400’s are the largest, longest and most forgiving irons that Titleist have ever produced.

The first thing you notice is the chunky head for distance but there is a lot more involved in these clubs.

The Split sole interacts perfectly with the turf and the thin forged face is L shaped to expand the sweet for strikes low on the face. It also produces amazing ball speeds.

100gs of Tungsten weighting on the heel and toe expands the sweet spot massively on these irons and they are perfect for beginners to the game alongside those who struggle to hit their irons consistently straight.

Taylormade Sim 2 Irons Overview

The Sim 2 Max represent the best in technology from Taylormade after decades of innovation.

The clubs follow on from the very Popular M Series and it also makes a few key improvements.

The Speed Bridge is replace by a full cavity filling Full Cap Badge that dampens vibrations and adds to the distance you can achieve with the clubs.

Tungsten weighting, Progressive ICT and the Speed Thru Slot expands the sweet spot on the irons and the face of the club is ultra thin for incredible balls speeds.

The Sim 2 Max irons will be slightly more workable than the T400’s for the better players but you can also get the The Sim 2 Max OS irons for even more fogveiness for beginners.

Both of these clubs will appeal massively to beginners with a budget but if you have your eyes on becoming a more advanced player, the Sim 2 Irons will be more suitable.

The T400 are great for beginners but the Sim2 Max also cater well for the high handicappers.

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.

Titleist T400- First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the T400’s is how chunky the heads of the clubs are.

At address you can tell that they are going to be long and forgiving, they almost look like a hybrid they are so chunky.

Added to that, they have strong lofts that ensure distance as well as forgiving are high on the list of benefits offered by the clubs.

The clubs are progressively sized so as you get to the shorter irons, they are less chunky and more workable.

The split sole system ensures a quality turf interaction and high launching shots while the ball seems to spring off the ultra thin, forged steel face which is also L shaped to ensure higher shots off the lower part of the face.

The clubs are offset so if you do tend to slice the ball they will also be a good fit.

100g’s of Tungsten weighting expands the perimeter of the sweet spot and as you  approach the ball it is obvious that they clubs are long and consistent.

Overall first impressions, this is an excellent set for anyone who struggles to hit their irons consistently or any beginners looking for more distance from their irons.
