    Pro Tip: TaylorMade Stealth Drivers Go Beyond Titanium

    Updated: Mar 29, 2023
    Pro Tip: TaylorMade Stealth Drivers Go Beyond Titanium

    TaylorMade Golf’s newest line of drivers — the Stealth drivers — seek to challenge the longstanding assumption that the best material for golf drivers is titanium. The new TaylorMade drivers of 2022 are made of carbon and punch above their weight.

    What makes the TaylorMade Stealth driver special? The 60x Carbon Twist Face is made of 60 layers of carbon sheets, arranged for an improved transfer of energy that delivers faster ball speeds. And the TaylorMade Stealth driver forgiveness is sure to please any player for whom that is a distinguishing feature. Like all TaylorMade golf clubs, you can expect excellent craftsmanship and engineering.


    We’re breaking down the three models of the new TaylorMade driver below, giving you the main differences between the TaylorMade Stealth, Stealth Plus and Stealth HD drivers. From the TaylorMade Stealth for high handicappers to the perfect driver for playability, learn everything you need to know to make the right selection.

    Each of these models brings something a little different to the table and will meet your needs no matter your handicap.

    The TaylorMade Stealth Driver: One for Every Golfer

    TaylorMade STEALTH Driver

    This is the TaylorMade Stealth driver for high handicappers seeking a lightweight driver that packs a punch. There are many design and technological breakthroughs that make the new TaylorMade Stealth driver unique.

    To start, the 60x Carbon Twist Face increases ball speeds across a larger area of the driver clubface. The face features a nanotexture on it that creates the ideal amount of friction at impact, which helps with launch and spin, ultimately delivering an optimal distance.

    The overall shape of the driver is aerodynamic and designed to increase club head speeds. The shape also allows more weight in the rear of the club for a higher moment of inertia (MOI), excellent launch. This is also what leads to the improved TaylorMade Stealth forgiveness.

    One benefit of carbon versus titanium is the difference in weight. The new TaylorMade Stealth driver is 44% lighter than titanium, which means more mass can be positioned lower in the driver head for that greater forgiveness. This is one of the first differences when compared to the Stealth Plus, which is detailed below.


    TaylorMade Stealth Plus Driver

    TaylorMade STEALTH Plus Driver

    Like the new TaylorMade Stealth driver, the Stealth Plus is made using advanced carbon technology. It employs an aerodynamic shape like the Stealth and its face has the same nanotexture that helps create friction at impact and improves overall launch and spin. And we can’t forget to note the pure sound that turned all the Tour players’ heads - a change in material definitely didn’t hurt that glorious sound at impact.

    The main difference is that the Stealth Plus driver has a Sliding Weight Track, so you can customize the ball flight by adjusting the weights to create your ideal launch and trajectory.

    While the TaylorMade Stealth driver is for a high handicapper, the Stealth Plus driver is best suited for mid to low handicap golfers who know exactly what they want in their ball flight and are looking for the right TaylorMade drivers to help them achieve that.


    TaylorMade Stealth HD Driver

    TaylorMade STEALTH HD Driver

    The Stealth HD driver brings the same attention to detail in its design as the TaylorMade Stealth driver and Stealth Plus driver, except it was designed for golfers who want to leverage a draw bias.

    To fix your slice off the tee, the Stealth HD driver promotes a right-to-left ball flight (if you’re a right-handed golfer). While other draw bias drivers may not be the most forgiving, the Stealth HD was designed with forgiveness in mind, as were the rest of the TaylorMade D-Type drivers.

    The 60x Carbon Twist Face teams up with the higher MOI to help create a straighter, more forgiving ball flight. These TaylorMade golf clubs are best suited for golfers of any handicap who want that extra distance and accuracy from hitting a draw.


    Comparing the Stealth Driver to the SIM and M Family of Drivers

    TaylorMade SIM 2 Driver
    TaylorMade M4 Driver

    Those familiar with TaylorMade Golf may be wondering what the key differences are between the new Stealth driver line and TaylorMade’s SIM and M drivers. To start, neither the SIM nor the M drivers use carbon in the same way the Stealth line of TaylorMade drivers do to create friction and forgiveness on the face and a weightless feel (for the Stealth driver, that is).

    One theme in common among all the TaylorMade drivers is distance and power. The TaylorMade SIM drivers employ a forged ring on the face specifically designed for distance, forgiveness and low spin. The TaylorMade M drivers are designed to help you hit straighter and farther with faster ball speeds.

    The TaylorMade Stealth drivers take these technological advances into account and go one step further by using titanium, a much lighter material that will help you increase your swing speed. Plus, it’s hard to beat the TaylorMade Stealth driver forgiveness advances. Don't forget to check out the TaylorMade Stealth 2 driver as well.
