WELCOME TO THE CARBONWOOD AGE

For the last 20 years, Titanium was all the rage. But we have always known that every material has a limit.

So, we started pushing the boundaries and now we’re leaving the old race behind to begin a completely new one. A race that drives beyond the here and now to raise the bar for what’s possible.

After 20 years in the making, the limits of titanium have been broken. Introducing Stealth™ drivers with 60X Carbon Twist Face.

Welcome to the Carbonwood Age.

  • 60X CARBON TWIST FACE

    Twenty years of development marks the end of the titanium era. The all new 60X Carbon Twist Face is 40% lighter than an equivalent titanium face, while also being 11% larger than SIM2 and SIM2 Max drivers and nearly 20% larger than the 2020 SIM driver. Sixty layers of carbon fiber have been strategically designed to optimize energy transfer to deliver fast ball speeds over a large area, resulting in optimal distance and forgiveness.

  • NANOTEXTURE COVER

    The 60X Carbon Twist Face is encased by a polyurethane cover, featuring a revolutionary new nanotexture technology. The nanotexture cover is used to fine tune launch and spin to optimize total distance regardless of playing conditions.

  • HIGH MOI DESIGN

    The weight savings of the 60x Carbon Twist Face has allowed more weight to be positioned low and deep in the head. Additional weight savings come from the removal of the Sliding Weight Track. Compared to Stealth Plus+, this model offers 15% greater MOI.

  • ASYMMETRIC INERTIA GENERATOR

    The Inertia Generator remains the foundational source of refined aerodynamic properties. The result is a slippery-fast head shape that aids in swing speed generation on the downswing for golfers at every level. It provides the added benefit of enhanced forgiveness vs. Stealth Plus+ with extra weight positioned low and back.

  • THRU-SLOT SPEED POCKET

    Our most flexible Speed Pocket™ design engineered to maximize ball speeds and produce additional forgiveness on low face strikes.

Scottie Scheffler’s 2022 Masters Winning WITB

A week on from a memorable Masters, we look at Scottie Scheffler’s 2022 Masters Winning WITB. A week of many talking points has passed since Scottie Scheffler donned the Green Jacket for his first time, and on current form, you would suggest it’s the first of many!

What was your favourite moment of the weekend? There are so many to choose from including the return of Tiger Woods! Another come back, only this time he didn’t need a victory to capture the hearts of his fans. To see him just playing again after a horrible accident last year left us wondering if we’d ever see the Sunday red shirt again! Perhaps you enjoyed the incredible display from Rory on Sunday? It has got us excited about a potential return to form! However, whatever your favourite moment was, one man stole the show, with what looked like an effortless display of golf all weekend long. You must be good if you can 4 putt the last to claim your first Major win. So with that in mind, let’s look at what equipment helped Scottie to his 4th win in only 6 starts in 2022.

Whats In The Bag

Driver: TaylorMade Stealth Plus (8 degrees @7.5)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X

Hitting 43 / 56 fairways over 4 days is a must around Augusta. Everyone knows Augusta for the greens, but positioning yourself on the green starts by having the right shot in… preferably off the fairway!

3-wood: TaylorMade Stealth Plus (16.5 degrees @15)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 8 X

Utility: Srixon Z U85 (3)
Shaft: Nippon Pro Modus3 Hybrid Tour X

Irons: Srixon ZU85 (4), TaylorMade P7TW (5-PW)
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100

49 / 72 greens hit over the 4 days, which was 11% higher than the field average!

Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 (50-12F, 56-14F, 60-06K)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Putter: Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tour type GSS Prototype

Putting average of 1.53 putts per hole, which was 5th on the list of players.

Based on the weekend stats, Scottie was the most steady players across the board. He found the least amount of trouble and looked in control of his game, mindset and clubs all weekend.

So, that’s another win for Scottie and another win for the TaylorMade Stealth driver this season. If you are looking for equipment that you can rely on under pressure, then we have the perfect solution for you. FREE CUSTOM FITTING

20 years of development marks the end of the titanium era. TaylorMade have now launched the new Stealth driver, equipped with the all new 60x Carbon Twist Face. A big change since last year’s SIM2 driver.

afgolfstore taylormade stealth driver

Noticeable with the stand-out red face, the new driver is 44% lighter than the equivalent titanium face, whilst also being 11% larger than the SIM2 and SIM2 Max. The face is made up of 60 layers of carbon fiber, which have been strategically designed to optimize energy transfer to deliver fast ball speeds over a large area, resulting in optimal distance and forgiveness. ~ TaylorMade.

What Are The Key Benefits?

  • 60x Carbon Twist Face | Creating more efficiency, increased ball speed and more forgiveness.
  • In the core Stealth driver, the weight has moved as a result of the new material weight loss. Moving lower and further back in the club. The centre of gravity has therefore changed, increasing the MOI by 15% in comparison to the Stealth Plus.
  • TaylorMade’s most flexible Speed Pocket design engineered to maximise ball speeds and produce additional forgiveness with low face strikes.

The Stealth comes in 3 different heads:

  • STEALTH | The core driver offering most forgiveness
  • STEALTH PLUS |  The Plus+ has moveable weights. 10g sliding weights, designed to help golfers control shot shape by shifting mass on the sole to create the desired ball flight.
  • STEALTH HD | HD standing for high draw. Due to the carbon twist, TaylorMade have created the highest MOI in the stealth family of drivers in the HD to promote a draw bias, right to left ball flight.

OUR VERDICT

AFGolf Store’s Jack Yetton, tested the product, focusing on the STEALTH driver. We did a straight comparison on the SIM2 with the results showing a ball speed increase of 3mph on average with an average of 10 yards distance gain. This was to be expected due to the efficiency of the carbon.

Here is what Jack had to say:

“It feels great and I love the results. There is clear forgiveness when I don’t catch it in the middle. What I enjoy is the traditional sound of titanium even though it is a carbon face. Overall a club I would feel confident in hitting under pressure.
