GolfWRX Spotted: TaylorMade 300 Mini Driver on conforming list

Published

on

TaylorMade’s “300 Mini Driver” has landed on the USGA’s conforming list as the rise in mini driver popularity continues.

TaylorMade 300 Mini Driver

Like all recent TM drivers, the new addition from TaylorMade includes Twist Face technology and a Speed Pocket that bids to aid lower face strikes. An adjustable hosel will allow players to adjust the head by two degrees up and down (from the standard 11.5 degrees), allowing for a driver head to range from 9.5 up to 13.5 degrees. A 13.5-degree model will be available as well, per the conforming list. 

In addition, the mini driver contains a multi-material which appears to include a carbon crown, titanium body, and heavy steel sole plate. A T logo alignment mark features on the crown of the club, and per the conforming list details, a left-handed version will arrive in 11.5 degrees.

What our members are saying:

  • chrism: “I didn’t dislike the looks of the previous mini drivers, but I love this look. At 300cc, I am VERY interested to try it out. Will it be a versatile half-set driver/fw, or will it be a 2 wood type club in the main bag!? Can’t wait to hit both lofts and see!”
  • Breezy-3-: “I dig the return to the 300 series look. I played a 360Ti in high school, loved that club. A buddy of mine broke it attempting an ill-fated Happy Gilmore swing at the range the night before the high school state tournament. That was the origins of my golf club hoing.”
  • ASN21: “I am a little curious to try a 13.5 head.”

    either there’s information missing here, or there’s an error

    the pictures show an 11.5* loft head. if that’s adjustable +/- 2*, that would mean 9.5* to 13.5* range. the article states it can be weakened up to 15.5*

    is there also a 13.5* head coming out? or is there a typo above?

    Why not just buy a driver from 20 years ago off of ebay?

      The shaft. Hopefully Taylor will offer a bunch of shaft choices. I think shafts are more improved than heads. I would put a new shaft on a 10 or 20 yr old head, but not vice versa.

        I have a ProForce V2 in a M2 head that is my backup driver. Still a beast.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
