Club Review: TaylorMade Stealth

Club Review: TaylorMade Stealth

Isn’t it time you treated yourself to some new golf clubs?

Whilst there are several golf club manufacturers all vying for your attention, TaylorMade remains the firm favourite of many golfers – with good reason.

Unlike other brands, they continually strive to push boundaries. Moving away from the norm of using titanium to manufacture golf equipment and instead introducing the Carbonwood Age – otherwise known as the TaylorMade Stealth line-up!

The Stealth family is made up of:

  • TaylorMade Stealth Drivers
  • TaylorMade Stealth Irons
  • TaylorMade Stealth Fairway Woods
  • TaylorMade Stealth Hybrids

Here, Clarkes’ Golf Centre reveal more about the TaylorMade Stealth golf clubs.


Do any PGA Tour players use TaylorMade Stealth clubs?

Before the Stealth clubs went on general sale, Tiger Woods used the Stealth Plus Driver at the PNC Championships in December, where he narrowly missed out on the top spot to his son, Charlie.

Sharing with his 2.8 million followers on Instagram, Woods described the driver as a “truly amazing product” and thanked TaylorMade for getting it to him so quickly.

Rory McIlroy also confirmed that he’ll be using a TaylorMade Stealth Driver throughout the PGA Tour this year. And players such as Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Tommy Fleetwood and Robert MacIntyre can’t speak highly enough about the new line-up!


Which Stealth Driver is the most forgiving?

When compared to the TaylorMade Stealth Plus, the Stealth Driver boasts a more forgiving design. By removing the Sliding Weight Track, engineers were able to position more weight towards the rear of the club, resulting in increased MOI (moment of inertia) and better forgiveness and stability – particularly on off-centre hits.

However, the Stealth HD Driver has a draw-biased design, making it the most forgiving of all. It’s perfect for golfers who often slice the ball and need a club that offers maximum forgiveness.


Is the Stealth Iron good for high handicappers?

TaylorMade Stealth Irons are an excellent choice for high handicappers and beginners, as well as mid-handicappers. This is because the brand offers a choice of loft options and optimises the head for traits of both mid and high handicap players.

Aside from being extremely forgiving, these irons are great for players who struggle to send the ball far and fast – significantly improving ball speed and distance.


Are Stealth Irons classed as game improvement irons?

Yes, TaylorMade Stealth Irons are commonly categorised as ‘game improvement’ models, which makes them perfect for players who crave forgiveness and ball speed.

Unlike previous game improvement irons, the Stealth clubs aren’t big and bulky. Instead, they incorporate new technologies and computer-aided designs to provide maximum forgiveness and speed. This can have a huge impact on the game, helping golfers to shave strokes off their scores.


Can Stealth Fairway Woods be adjusted?

There are two Stealth Fairway Woods: the Stealth and Stealth Plus.

The Stealth model is non-adjustable and offers a high launch and mid-spin, whereas the Stealth Plus Fairway Wood’s head can be adjusted to increase the spin rate.

Although the TaylorMade Stealth Fairway Wood cannot be altered, it has a new laser-etched alignment aid on the top of the clubface. This makes it easier to line up with the ball and hit shots more accurately.


How much is the TaylorMade Stealth Fairway Wood?

The price you’ll pay for TaylorMade Stealth Fairway Woods often depends on the stockist and when you opt to buy new clubs.

Here at Clarkes’ Golf Centre, we pride ourselves on offering some of the most competitive prices around – allowing you to pick up the Stealth Fairway Wood for just £279 and the Stealth Plus for £349.

TaylorMade releases new clubs every year, so if you’re not in a rush, maybe you could wait until they’ve announced their next line-up. The price of Stealth clubs is bound to decrease.


Is the Stealth Hybrid better than the Stealth Fairway Wood?

Fairway woods and hybrids look very similar, but they’re not constructed the same and serve different roles.

For example, fairway woods have a broader sole and larger clubhead than hybrids. This makes them perfect for sending the ball further. Hybrids, on the other hand, are more forgiving and easier to hit than longer irons and fairway woods.

So, if you’re unsure whether you should opt for a TaylorMade Stealth Hybrid or Fairway Wood, be sure to consider what matters most to you, as they both have their advantages.
