When Tiger Woods was seen hitting balls with the new TaylorMade driver for 2022, many rumours circulated as to what the new club brought to the 15-time major champion's bag.

The TaylorMade Stealth, Stealth Plus and Stealth HD make up the new three-way family and they come with a dark black head and a unique red clubface.

The face is made of 60 layers of carbon which is different to any club we have seen. The Stealth line has been in the making for 20 years.

Carbon is lighter than a titanium face and it allows for a more efficient energy transfer. This brings a trampoline effect off the clubface.

 

 

A carbon face can bring issues when it is used in different weather conditions, but nano-tetxure has been used to combat these inconsistencies.

The nano-texture in the clubface means that the TaylorMade Stealth drivers can perform in all conditions. The lighter face also helps to produce higher ball speeds.

The Stealth faces are 20% bigger than the TaylorMade SIM driver and 10% bigger than the TaylorMade SIM2 driver. This new release also packs in twist face technology and Speed Foam.

As Alex shows first with the TaylorMade Stealth Plus (£499), the connection feels springy off the clubface, but it also has a metallic feel.

The Stealth Plus is low spin and produces great distances off the tee and even better ball speeds. Alex was particularly stunned at the latter.

The TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver looks and feels amazing and so does the TaylorMade Stealth driver, which is more forgiving.

The Stealth driver is certainly aimed at amateur players with its high MOI and non-adjustable weight racking. 

Alex found that his dispersion and accuracy was improved with the TaylorMade Stealth driver (£469), but the spin rate and launch angle also increased too.

The ball speed remained extremely impressive which signifies that this TaylorMade Stealth family has qualities that please golfers of all abilities.
