Taylormade SIM2 Vs Cobra Aerojet Irons Comparison Overview

Taylormade is known for packing a bunch of features into their game improvement clubs and the SIM2 irons are a perfect example of that design philosophy.

With Taylormade, more is better. On the other side of the aisle is Cobra with their new Aerojet irons.

The Cobra Aerojet irons are a bit more subtle than the Taylormade SIM2 irons in both design and concept. We wanted to find out which is the better game improvement iron so we tested them out side-by-side.

Taylormade SIM2 Irons Overview

“The Taylormade SIM2 irons are incredibly forgiving and look great at address for high handicap players.”

The face and the profile of these irons were made to allow high handicappers to strike more accurately. They feature the Speed Pocket which enhances flex on low-face strikes, inverted cone technology which is progressive this particular set and a thinned out face to push ball speeds as much as possible.

The size of these irons will hearten the most timid of players as well. These are not compact irons. They have a moderate topline but are pretty long from heel to toe. The undercut and sole are both pretty substantial as well.

The flight of these irons is surprisingly controllable though. They are strong-lofted; but the low CG and considerable undercut cavity give players decent apex height and more importantly, control over launch.

Cobra Aerojet Irons Overview

“The Cobra Aerojet irons have even stronger lofts than the SIM2 and as you can imagine for a Cobra golf club, they register low spin rates.”

This is what put these irons over the top for our testers. We are suckers for low launch and reduced side spin and that’s exactly what the Cobra Aerojet irons deliver. Overall, they aren’t much different from recent Cobra irons like the Radspeed and Speedzone irons.

But that’s not necessarily a bad thing as the Speedzone and Radspeed irons were terrific game improvement irons. The Cobra Aerojet irons feature an updated weighting system that is suspended so that it braces the heel and toe areas. This helps increase lateral stiffness and accuracy.

“The Taylormade SIM2 irons are certainly the more forgiving irons in this comparison. So if you need more confidence on your full swings, the SIM2’s would be the better choice. However, if you make consistent contact and want optimal spin dynamics for distance, the Cobra Aerojet irons are the way to go.”

Sim 2 Irons – 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.

Cobra Aerojet Irons – First Impressions

“Right away, we liked the moderate footprint of these irons.”

We could just tell by looking at them out of the packaging that they would suit the needs of a wide variety of everyday golfers. They look forgiving, are forgiving and will provide you the launch angles you need for any kind of lie. Around the pin, you can unleash their full launch potential to nail fast greens. And from distance, the naturally low launch will give you piercing trajectory and ball speed.

The Cobra Iron Family

“The T-rail irons are also a handy choice for high handicappers.”

They sport a hybrid iron design with baffler rails to help you glide through rough turf. These are definitely for players scoring above 100.

Who Are the Cobra Aerojet Irons for?

“The Cobra Aerojet irons would be a great choice for high handicappers looking to score a set that will still be of use to them as they improve.”

While spin control was a bit lacking (especially in the shorter irons), our testers really didn’t care because of how forgiving these irons are. They provide great distance thanks to the naturally strong loft but are tempered nicely by a sizable undercut cavity and moderate soles.

Forgiveness: 96/100

Workability: 94/100

Overall Score: 95/100
