Taylormade STEALTH Driver Review

Taylormade Stealth Driver

This is Golfer Geeks' review of the 2022 Taylormade Stealth driver 

I'm an avid golfer, a 9.2 handicap on my way to a 2 (been a 5.6) and frequent tester of golf clubs and equipment since 2015.

I tested the Stealth on my Swing Caddie SC300 multiple times over the course of 2 weeks at the range of my course. 

Summary: The Stealth driver delivered in every way I thought it would. It's a beautiful club & sets up well behind the ball. It's long, forgiving, and was easy to hit for me. Not something I'm used to with new drivers. It costs a pretty penny, but is worth a test drive if you don't mind giving up a car payment.

Taylormade Stealth Driver at the Range

Taylormade Stealth Driver Overview

Taylormade claims they've reached the limits of titanium faces in their woods. They've been working with carbon in the background for 20 years and feature it in all their woods for 2022 (and beyond, I guess). The "60x Carbon Twist Face" is supposed to be a faster and more forgiving material. They took a heap-big chance doing this and it appears to have paid off. 

Why Consider the Stealth Driver 

The Stealth driver does what Taylormade says it will do. You'll get good to great results if you put a decent swing on it. It's long, forgiving, and looks and sounds great.

Features & Benefits

1) 60X Carbon Twist Face

  • Better energy transfer (Hotter Face)
  • More forgiving
  • Increased the effective hitting area by increasing the size of the face and clubhead
  • Increases accuracy and distance on off-center hits.
  • Provides better feel on shots hit across the face
2) Asymmetric Inertial Generator
  • Better aerodynamics just before impact (where Taylormade says it's needed for increased clubhead speed)
  • Allows additional weight to be placed for higher MOI, optimal launch, better forgiveness

3) 44% Lighter Than Titanium

  • Position more mass lower in the clubhead for added forgiveness.

4) Nanotexture Cover & Polyurethane

  • Nanotexture creates face texture with more friction at impact
  • Polyurethane used to fine tune launch and spin, and optimize total distance

5) Premium Sound

  • Taylormade says sound is an important component in feel so they used curvature, shape, and internal stiffening ribs to dial in acoustics.

Testing the Taylormade Stealth Driver

I tested the Stealth driver over 3 sessions at the driving range. I had my camera out for some of it and my launch monitor out for all of it. 

Specs: Aldila Ascent Red 60 Graphite Stiff Flex shaft - 10.5 degree loft - 45.75 "

I didn't come into this test thinking I would hit the Stealth as well as I did. My driver swing is improving through hard work, but driving still isn't a strength of mine... yet. 

My Experience with the Stealth Driver

I found the Stealth easy, very easy to hit. It felt great in my hands and looked great behind the ball. This is surprising to me because I NEVER swing drivers over 44.25 inches, which is the length I cut mine to. I favor control over distance and I find it easier to hit shorter length drivers. The Stealth is a whopping (to me) 45.75 inches. 

Still, I had no issues with the Stealth. I hit a load of good drives and I would take it on the course in competition in a heartbeat. 

It's everything you want out of a premium driver... at a premium price. 

Review of the Taylormade Stealth Driver

  • Looks: The shape is the same is the SIM drivers before it. Colors are red on black and work well. Crown graphics are minimal. The face design is what stands out
  • Sound/ Feel: Great muted sound on contact, similar to the SIM2. But just a bit different. The face feels a bit softer because of the polyurethane and carbon layer design.  
  • Distance: Excellent distance. I carried many drives around the 260 yd mark, which is not my norm. 
  • Forgiveness: Plenty. I had to swing pretty crazy to make this thing go crooked 
  • Flight / Playability: Beautiful medium-high ball flight. My ball went basically straight, with a few tight draws and fades mixed in.

The Taylormade SIM2 is a beast of a driver and is now discounted due to the release of the Stealth. You can save about $150 by going with a new SIM2 if you're into saving a few bucks. Get a slightly used SIM2 and savings will add up. That would be my play.

The GS53 Max is my everyday driver. I've been playing it for just under a year. It's long, forgiving, and has classic Hogan Golf styling- minimal. I love playing with it. Really want to save a ton and get a nice driver? Give the GS53 Max a look. 

Our Verdict

The Taylormade Stealth is a great driver. No getting around it. Any handicap can play this thing without a problem. Elite low handicappers may want more adjustability, so give the Stealth Plus a look. 

Thanks for checking out our Taylormade Stealth driver review and let us know it works for you.
