TaylorMade Golf is making additional use of carbon fiber in the new Stealth family of fairway woods and Rescues (their name for hybrids) to help weight placement for improved performance. The Stealth Plus fairway wood has a face using their Twist Face design made from a very strong titanium alloy from ZATECH plus a new 80V steel sole to make this better-players club easier to hit. The crown is a wraparound or “Infinity” design 12% larger than the SIM 2 of last year.

“For most golfers, the fairway wood doesn’t get used on every hole. But when those moments arise, it needs to deliver,” Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director Product Creation, Metalwoods. “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.”

The Rescues TaylorMade says have been refined with the Stealth Plus model having a smaller footprint and a higher toe, more like an iron while the higher launch Stealth Rescue has the center of gravity lower in the head.
