Taylormade SIM2 Vs Titleist TSi3 Driver Comparison Overview

Taylormade has always been known as a company that isn’t afraid to make the most forgiving game improvement drivers.

Titleist on the other hand is viewed more as a company that caters to amateurs and pros.

The Taylormade SIM2 driver is packed with forgiveness and performance features and is one of the best examples of how the company develops drivers with higher handicap players in mind. However, more and more players have been turned on to the Titleist TSi3 driver and we wanted to see exactly why.

Taylormade SIM2 Driver Overview

“The SIM2 is a 460cc driver with a large face profile. Right away, it appeals to the sensibilities of higher handicap players.”

Behind the ball, the Taylormade SIM2 driver looks very assuring. It features split mass weighting in the sole and in the rear of the club. The 16 gram rear sole helps to increase forgiveness while the sole weight helps to reduce spin.

When we tested the SIM2, we weren’t blown away from the backspin numbers. They were kept reasonable but you still get enough to affect your  ball speed. However, the CG feels nice and low even though this is also a relatively low-launching driver.

The SIM2 also features Twist Face Technology which helps increase launch on hgh face shots and preserves ball speed on low face shots. The SIM2 plays hot and affords enough forgiveness to be viable for mid and high handicap players.

Titleist TSi3 Driver Overview

“The Titleist TSi3 not only has an adjustable loft sleeve; but the CG can be placed in 5 unique positions.”

At address, you get the classic titleist lines and colors. It looks fantastic behind the ball. The sliding CG weight also allows you to compensate for your mis-hit. It can be placed in heel, extreme heel, toe, extreme toe and neutral positions.

The facs is also made of ATI 425 titanium which feels incredibly hot. Overall, the Titleist TSi3 was actually producing better ball speed and overall distance for our testers than the Taylormade SIM2 driver.

“The Titleist TSi3 was the longer overall driver; but it wasn’t as forgiving as the SIM2. In true Titelist fashion, the TSi3 would be better for mid handicappers. The Taylormade SIM2 driver on the other hand is forgiving enough for high handicappers, and launches low enough to be beneficial for mid handicappers with faster swing speeds.”

Sim 2 Driver – First Impressions

The first thing you notice about this driver is the large and the attractive, colorful design with advanced features popping out of every crevice in the driver.

The club is surprisingly light and the sweet spot is so big, you cant imagine hitting anything but a straight shot.

If slices are a problem for you in your game, the Max D version is almost guaranteed to iron that out of your game and if you want to opt for a more playable driver with extra distance the Sim is perfect. For us the Sim Max was a happy in between to hit.

The ultra thin steel face is speed injected for maximum distance and the Sim 2 is among the longest drivers in the game right now, but the thru slot speed pocket is also amazing at increasing the size of the sweet spot when hit low on the face.

The forged ring construction and carbon fiber sole delivers some of the fastest swing speeds in the game today.

It also has the inertia generator for higher MOI and split mass weighting, including a 16g steel weight and the back of the club for an incredible, long accurate and forgiving driver, used by some the world’s best players including Dustin Johnson.

Titleist TSi3 Driver – First Impressions

The Titleist TSi3 driver has a clean design that makes this club an instant hit for Titleist fans.

We couldn’t way to get out to the range and play with the sliding weight. This club really allows for optimal ball placement.

You will also notice that the 460cc head shape is very aerodynamic. You can almost feel the absence of drag on your downswing.

If you are someone that is consistent in their swing, the Titleist TSi3 is an excellent option to consider.

The Tsi Family

The Tsi family also includes the Tsi 2 driver.

The Tsi 2 features a lower CG than the Titleist TSi3 driver for higher launch angles.

The Tsi4 on the other hand has a 425CC head and produces the lowest spin of the bunch.
