The TaylorMade Stealth 2 driver range follows on from last year’s first-generation Stealth, which broke new ground with its full carbon face.
Whilst Stealth 2 doesn’t have a new innovation on that scale, it offers a whole host of refinements and improvements on its predecessor.
Bottom line, it’s is a brilliant second-generation offering, with ‘regular’ club golfers likely to be the biggest winners.
I tested the Stealth 2 Plus model – one of three models in the new range – and what I found was a host of small changes that make significant differences.
At first glance, the most noticeable change in the Stealth 2 Plus is the gloss finish on the crown and ‘redder’ 60x Carbon Twist Face.
It’s a matter of personal taste but I really like the look of it at address. It suits my eye and frames the ball nicely.
The weighting on the sole has changed slightly and there is 75% more carbon in the Stealth 2 Plus.
With carbon being a lighter material, this has allowed TaylorMade to redistribute the weight around the clubhead to improve its overall performance. It has a weight at the back and a 15g sliding weight at the front of the sole which allows you to dial-in your desired flight and keep spin lower.
