TaylorMade Went Back to Square One to Make SIM 2 Even Better

A lighter weight crown and sole bound together with a forged aluminum ring that is CC milled saved them 10g. The aluminum ring is 30% lighter than the previous titanium model and provided a lower back weight system, creating higher and lower CG.
With all of this weight cutting, TaylorMade was able to capitalize on it in the back weights. They have gone from an 8g weight in gen 1 to a 16g weight in SIM 2. The result in moving the weight from front to back is higher MOI, a more stable clubhead, as well as reducing and moving CG further back in the clubhead.
