TaylorMade’s all-new Stealth™ Plus and Stealth fairway woods have been introduced to world of golf with huge intrigue earlier this month.

In addition, the company also unveiled its expanded hybrid offerings with the Tour-inspired Stealth Plus Rescue™ and Stealth Rescue.

Carbon is the prevalent throughout the designs across the entire Stealth product line family. That shared DNA aims to pursue faster ball speeds, high MOI performance and precision playability.

Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade Senior Director Product Creation, Metalwoods, said: “For most golfers, the fairway wood doesn't get used on every hole. But when those moments arise, it needs to deliver. No matter what the shot requires, whether it’s forgiveness, distance or playability, you need to know your club can produce the desired results. That’s why we designed the family of Stealth fairway woods with increased MOI for added forgiveness without sacrificing the high launch and low spin results that produce the marquee distance golfers have come to expect from TaylorMade fairways.

“The new advanced laser alignment system and refined profile, especially on the Stealth Plus model, help inspire shot-shaping confidence with optimal control at every level of the game.”

Let’s have FIRST LOOK at the technical side…

The Stealth Plus fairway relies on the strength of ZATECH titanium, which is made in small batches using a unique process that allows engineers to improve the strength of the face and still maintain a high level of ductility. The ultra-thin construction promotes fast ball speeds and allows TaylorMade to push the limits of face flexibility.

An all-new infinity edge carbon crown creates a 12% larger carbon surface area compared to the SIM2 Titanium fairways, which allows the redistribution of more weight lower in the clubhead.

Mass from the heavy 80g V Steel™ sole has been re-engineered for forgiveness while maintaining its core purpose of improving turf interaction and versatility.

The MOI on Stealth Plus is 12% higher than SIM2 Titanium and 18% higher than the original SIM titanium fairway. Overall, the design changes resulted in a club with the lowest CG ever in an adjustable TaylorMade fairway.

With a refined 175cc profile, the Stealth Plus fairway delivers the ideal blend of playability, shot making and distance. While the address area of Stealth Plus is only 2% larger than SIM2 to maintain versatility, the face area is 12% larger to provide improved performance on off-center hits.

In the Stealth model, the all-new 3D carbon crown allowed engineers to shift weight lower and deeper in the clubhead. With a larger profile compared to Stealth Plus (190cc vs. 175cc) and a refined V Steel sole, this fairway aims to be the combination of distance and forgiveness. Stealth fairways feature C300 Twist Face®, which delivers 3-wood speed and the V Steel Sole promotes versatility and reduced turf drag.

Thru-Slot Speed Pocket™ provides increased face flexibility, preservation of ball speed and distance, especially on low-face strikes for both Stealth Plus and Stealth fairways.

Stealth fairways also come with a women’s specific offering featuring a stand-alone bright silver PVD sole and a dark silver crown. The women’s Stealth fairways also feature modified specs in the form of lighter heads and higher lofts in some cases, all designed to promote better performance for slower clubheads speeds.

Stealth Plus and Stealth Fairways are available for pre-order on 4 January and at retail on 4 February 4 2022.
