Club Review: TaylorMade Stealth Golf Irons (Steel)

Club Review: TaylorMade Stealth Golf Irons (Steel)

One of the most impressive all-around iron sets in recent times. Are the TaylorMade Stealth Irons the game-changers you need in your golf bag?

The TaylorMade Stealth line has been pleasing golfers the world over for a while now.

Most notable for their series of drivers and fairway woods, which offer impeccable power and forgiveness, TaylorMade chose to add game improvement irons into the Stealth golf clubs mix, creating a set that’s visually stunning and delivers mouth-watering ball speed and accuracy - without breaking the bank.

Here's our TaylorMade Stealth irons review...


Each TaylorMade Stealth iron is available in both steel and graphite shaft options, but we’ll focus on the steel clubs for this review as these are the ones that most players will be drawn to because of steel’s popularity and sturdiness over the competition.

TaylorMade chose to continue with their cavity-backed irons as they offer great forgiveness and shot feel, but they took things one step further with a toe wrap construction while removing a whole section from the back of the club near the toe. This is to give the club an extremely low CG, delivering explosive ball speeds on impact.

The steel shaft is sturdy and is built with the same quality craftsmanship you’d expect from TaylorMade clubs, even ones at far higher price points. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

The chunky topline and slightly longer-than-average head are all indicators of an improvement iron, but you’d be forgiven if you thought these clubs were designed for low handicappers or even professionals at first glance…


As enjoyable as they are to use on the course (we’ll get to that in a moment) the look is what draws a lot of people’s eyes to these irons.

The simplistic yet equally eye-catching back of the irons is split between satin and black colours, with the unmistakable ‘Stealth’ logo embossed in a brushed carbon fibre effect, offering these clubs a real premium look. 

The base of the head takes the minimalist approach too, with the iron number engraved where you’d expect, and an added touch of black in the form of a swoosh-like line stretching from the heel to the toe for an added touch of class.

They look almost futuristic and would look right at home in your bag.


More than just a pretty face, the TaylorMade Stealth irons back up their impressive looks with even more impressive performance that’s surprised a lot of veterans considering the low price point.

With faster swing and ball speeds than previous models, it’s clear TaylorMade is making steps in the right direction with its irons. They have equal lofts to similar clubs but can hit higher and longer shots thanks to TaylorMade’s focus on clubhead aerodynamics, making them a worthwhile investment over other clubs if you’ve been using the same irons for a few years now and are looking for an upgrade.

But the accuracy on display by these irons has to be seen to be believed. With consistently precise shots time after time - thanks to an intelligently positioned sweet spot which covers multiple contact points - your game could see a serious improvement by making the switch.

This is, in part, thanks to the forgiveness they offer, but who cares? If you’re a beginner or a high handicapper and you want to start hitting straighter, more on-point iron shots, these are the clubs for you.


Despite their premium look and feel, along with the enhanced performance mid-to-high handicappers will enjoy, the TaylorMade Stealth Irons fall surprisingly low on the pricing scale.

At just £769 for a 5 iron to pitching wedge set (at the time of writing), this is an undeniable steal for any golfer looking to replace their old, outdated irons with a set that’ll elevate their game.


Much like a new car, new golf irons need to look the part, feel the part and perform to the standard you require.

The TaylorMade Stealth golf irons achieve all of the above and more in spades and will make a fine addition to the golf club collection of beginner players, or high handicappers seeking to improve.

The only downside? Ball spin is a little weak when compared to previous TaylorMade irons. But that’s a kink you could easily iron out with custom club fitting.

Considering that’s the only snag we found with these irons, you’d be silly not to consider them.
