Taylormade Stealth Plus Drivers Review – Introduction.
Taylormade introduced a new line of technologically driven drivers that use Carbon Fiber instead of Titanium that have been in use over the past 20 years.
These Stealth Carbonwood drivers are meant to perform better than the previous titanium-faced drivers, helping golfers achieve more success on the green.
Stealth Plus driver is one of the 3 Stealth Carbonwood drivers released by Taylormade, and unlike the standard Stealth driver, the Stealth Plus is the lowest spinning option and is designed to accommodate players who already have a fast swing speed but need distance.
One of the major differences between the Stealth Plus and other Stealth Carbonwood drivers is the moveable weight system. The stealth plus drivers have a moveable weight while others like the Stealth HD don’t.
Taylormade Stealth Plus Drivers Review – Basic Features/Technologies.
Highlighting some of the technologies in this new Stealth plus driver, we start with the Carbon crown design.
The Stealth Plus drivers contain 60x layers of Carbon that is 44% lighter than the equivalent made of the traditional titanium face and 11% larger than both SIM2 and SIM 2Max drivers, and more resilient and recover through impact quicker than the titanium face.
There is also the Nanotexture Cover. The 60x Carbon twisted face is encased by a polyurethane cover, featuring a new revolutionary technology nanotexture technology. This nanotexture technology is used to fine-tune launch and spin to optimized drive irrespective of the condition, wet or dry.
Featured also is the Asymmetric Inertia Generator.
Here, the Asymmetric Inertia Generator at the sole of the Stealth Plus driver makes it aerodynamic which will help players at every level generate more Clubhead speeds for added distance.
There is also the Sliding Weight Track that allows the use of a 10g sliding weight to help players control their shot shape by moving weight on the sole to create the desired ball flight.
Finally, there is the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket Technology seen on the sole of the Club which is the most flexible speeds pocket today.
This speeds pocket system adds more flexibility in the face to more speeds and added distance, as well as more forgiveness even on low face strikes.
There are 3 different adjustable loft options available with the Stealth Plus driver that allows you to adjust to fine-tuned as you play.
Taylormade is using the Project X HZRDus Smoke RDX Red 60 (X, S, R), and the Mitsubishi Kai li white 60 (X, S) as the standard stock shaft, while the Lamkin crossline 360 Black/Red 50gram is the standard stock grip.

the Stealth Plus driver looks great in the bag and on address, just like all of the Clubs in the Stealth Carbonwood Family.
You will find the crown wears a Matte-Black finish, a Red and Black color combination makes the Stealth Carbonwood drivers look really cool in my opinion.
The 60X Carbon twist face wears a Red/ honeycomb finish that turns out really nice.
Overall, the entire Stealth Carbonwood lineup looks completely different from the Titanium-faced drivers we are used to.
The Stealth plus driver and indeed all the Clubs in Stealth Carbonwood are designed to deliver better performance from their previous brothers and that’s exactly what you get playing the Stealth Plus driver.
All the Clubs in the Stealth Model use a 60X Carbon Twist Face which delivers more energy to the ball at impact and with this, you should see added clubhead speed that results in more distance.
This Club offers to offer a fair amount of forgiveness given it’s directly at more skillful players.
In comparison to the standard Stealth, Stealth plus is less forgiving and less and generally less helpful.
Speeds & Distance.
To ensure optimal speeds and distance, sixty layers of carbon fiber have been strategically designed to optimize energy transfer to the ball to deliver fast ball speeds across an expanded area of the Clubface, also resulting in more forgiveness.
There is also the Thru-slot speeds pocket design for optimal ball speeds and forgiveness on off-center hits.
Overall, when we paired the Stealth Plus driver against the previous models like the SIM2, we got about 6 yards added distance swinging the same 92 mph, and that’s pretty cool.
