In this TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver audit, Neil Tappin sets it facing different drivers in the Stealth family
We tried the TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver facing different choices in the family – the standard Stealth and Stealth HD – on a Trackman send off screen at Kings Golf Studio to see what you can anticipate from the exhibition.
For quicker swinging golf players or those searching for a driver set-up to advance a specific shot shape, TaylorMade has planned the Stealth Plus driver. Similarly as with different heads in the family, this elements a lightweight carbon fiber face.
TaylorMade says this development has been 20 years really taking shape and takes into consideration a more effective energy move at sway for quicker ball speeds.
In the Plus variant, this weight saving has likewise permitted designers to once again introduce a sliding load in the sole of the head. For this situation, a 10g mobile weight can be utilized to advance a specific shot shape predisposition.
Throughout the most recent couple of years, TaylorMade has reliably created the absolute best golf drivers available that stood apart especially for their looks and feel. The SIM2 driver family, delivered in 2021, offered premium feel and a strong effect sound that we adored. The inquiry is, how does the Stealth Plus, with its red, carbon fiber face look at?
Looks and Feel
Indeed, the uplifting news is the TaylorMade engineers haven’t totally deserted the attempted and tried recipe that has functioned admirably for them previously. Indeed, the red face is a takeoff yet the shading looks great and it isn’t diverting at address.
The covert, matt dark crown makes an exemplary conservative shape down behind the ball. We thought this functioned admirably in the Plus model. For sure, we thought the general rack allure of this driver was exceptional – the display of pictures above shows the driver from various points.
The vibe is marginally not quite the same as what we found in the SIM2 family.
Once more, the TaylorMade engineers have obviously buckled down on the acoustics and while we thought the Stealth models were somewhat more shrill, they actually solid and feel exceptionally strong through sway. No issues up until now.
We tried the Stealth Plus driver facing the other two choices in the TaylorMade family at Kings Golf Studio. We utilized Titleist Pro V1x golf balls and had similar Aldila Ascent 60s shaft in every driver. Each of the three heads were set to 9˚. The following is the send off screen information from our testing:
In a similar space and shaft set up, the Stealth Plus was the most reduced sending off and turning of the three heads. As far as we might be concerned, it was additionally the longest, delivering remarkable ball speed, convey and add up to separate execution. It is important the slight improvement in Smash Factor which will have without a doubt had an impact here.
What truly intrigued us during our testing was the way steady it was. As far as we can tell, lower turn drivers can be more diligently to hit yet the Stealth Plus conveyed great separation from a predictable ball flight, many shots.
It is additionally worth featuring that with the Stealth Plus driver, we created one of the quickest ball speeds we have at any point had during a club testing meeting. There is no question that TaylorMade is amped up for the capability of its new carbon confronted driver.
While it is difficult for us to measure precisely how the new innovation helps, it was clear during our testing the Stealth Plus conveys a noteworthy all round exhibition bundle. The conservative, optimistic style and strong feel total what is set to be one of the top driver competitors for 2022.
