After twenty years of development, the TaylorMade Stealth Driver unveils a new technology that buries the era of titanium faces. This revolutionary design, known as 60X Carbon Twist Face, is comprised of sixty layers of carbon fiber which have been strategically engineered to optimize energy transfer and deliver explosive ball speeds. Not only is 60X Carbon Twist Face 44% lighter than an equivalent titanium face, it is also 11% larger than SIM2 and SIM2 Max drivers, and nearly 20% larger than the original SIM driver. As a result, the face is not only faster, but extremely forgiving, and capable of delivering tremendous speed across a larger area of the face.
One might think that revolutionizing the driver face would suffice, but TaylorMade didn't stop there, encasing the 60X Carbon Twist Face in a polyurethane cover featuring ground breaking nanotexture technology. Nanotexture allowed engineers to fine tune launch and spin, optimizing total distance, regardless of playing conditions, or where the ball is struck on the face.
Earlier, it was mentioned that the 60X Carbon Twist Face saves an extraordinary amount of weight compared to traditional titanium, and TaylorMade put the weight savings to great use, positioning weight low and deep in the head. In comparison to the Stealth Plus+, the Stealth boasts 15% more MOI, making it much more stable than its low-spin sibling.
Two premium shafts are available in the Stealth Driver, including offerings from Graphite Design and Mitsubishi. The Graphite Design Tour AD IZ has firm stiffness in at the handle, a medium center section, and a firm+ tip profile to promote a high launch angle and low ball spin rates. The AD IZ also utilizes TORAYCA T1100G carbon-fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY technology in the tip section for additional stability, exceptional feel and ball control. Mitsubishi's Diamana ZF features moderately stronger, more stable butt and tip sections with a slightly softer and more active middle section. This produces a shaft that is incredibly solid during shaft loading and unloading, as well as impact, but with smoother energy transfer. The ZF is perfect for any player looking to increase clubhead acceleration while maintaining stability and control through impact.
