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.

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.
