The TaylorMade Stealth 2 promises a new level of tolerance. Here’s how…

TaylorMade’s Stealth kit sure caught the golf world’s attention last year with its bright red carbon front and it looks like it’s upping its game again in 2023 with the all-new Stealth 2 kit. TaylorMade has designed three models in Driver, Course and Hybrid so golfers of every ability can find the model they need to improve their game. The brand says it has been able to build on the success of the Stealth Driver by reducing weight in key areas of the head and moving it elsewhere, making the Stealth 2 easier and longer to strike. There is also a new iron model designed to help your slower swing achieve greater distance.

What is the new technology?

How does the Stealth 2 plan to be among the best golf drivers this year? By being the first brand to contain more carbon than any other material by volume. There’s a 75 percent increase in carbon in the Stealth 2 Plus and nearly 50 percent in Stealth 2 and Stealth 2 HD. By using more carbon, TaylorMade has shifted weight to improve CG positioning and increase the MOI rate—which is 9 percent higher in the Stealth 2 Plus than in the Stealth Plus. A Thru-Slot Speed ​​Pocket has been added back to this group of woods to maximize ball speed and produce extra tolerance on low-face hits.

In 2022, TaylorMade unveiled its 60X Carbon Twist Face that will carry over into the Stealth 2. However, the driver’s face isn’t quite the same as its predecessor, instead featuring a new version of Inverted Cone Technology (ICT) that’s said to keep the ball. Speed ​​on off-centre strikes and increased tolerance – TaylorMade calls this “spacing” and believes it will help make the Stealth 2 among TaylorMade’s best drivers ever.

With improved ICT, the Stealth 2 driver has a thinner face on the edges but a thicker face in the middle, designed in this way to spread speed around the golf club. In terms of face weight, the Stealth 2 is 2g lighter than the Stealth at 24g giving the Stealth 2 an enlarged COR area to enhance performance across the face and increase the sweet spot.
