The Curated Take

The original concept of a hybrid was to develop a club that will provide more reliability and consistency than long irons - that's exactly what the TaylorMade SIM2 Max rescue does. It maximizes forgiveness, distance and launch creating additional use from a plethora of lies and locations around the golf course. One of the lone drawbacks is the inability to work the golf ball, but if that's your priority in a rescue club then there are better alternatives available. With that said this club is going to elevate the mid to long-range game of the golfer looking for consistency out of their rescue club.

Product details

The Taylormade SIM2 Max is one of the better all around hybrids on the market. The one knock against this hybrid is it does not have an adjustable hosel so you cannot change the face angle or the loft. The face is hot so distance is big and the V shaped sole is great for turf interaction. Has a tendency to want to turn a little left so good for someone who misses right.

Pros
  • Very long
  • Very forgiving
  • Very easy to launch
Cons
  • No adjustability in the hosel or head

What is SIM2 Max rescue?
The SIM2 Max Rescue is TaylorMade's most forgiving hybrid. It is available in a variety of lofts, and can fit in many player's bags. This club is meant to be forgiving, high launching, and make the game easier for everyone. Hitting the ball long and far makes golf a much more approachable game. And this hybrid isn't just for amateurs, it has found the place in the bags of elite tour players like Dustin Johnson. You may not hit it 260 yards like he does, but it's a great sign that he is using it to attack long par 5s. This hybrid has a lot of potential, and can be a great fit to replace those pesky long irons.
