TAYLORMADE FAIRWAY WOOD REVIEWS
We tested: 15°, 16.5°, 18°, 21°, 24°
Our take: If you’re looking for a more traditional blend of distance and workability in a fairway wood, the Stealth is worth a hand look. Testers gave the towering launch high marks during testing and noted that toe shots tended to go almost as far as balls hit out of the middle. “I haven’t had a second-shot club for a while, but this one fits the bill,” said one tester. “The launch makes me feel as if the ball is going to stop on reentry. The black crown is a nice look, too. Very covert.”

TaylorMade Stealth fairway woods
The details: With a larger overall profile, the 190cc Stealth features a 3D carbon crown that made it possible for engineers to place more weight low and deep in the head to increase launch and bolster forgiveness. A C300 Twist Face is geared to ramp up speed, while TaylorMade’s V Steel sole is designed to promote versatility with reduced drag when hitting off the turf.
TaylorMade Stealth Plus
We tested: 13.5°, 15°, 19°
Our take: Take one tester’s word for it: the fully loaded Stealth Plus delivers impressive distance. “This face is just so hot,” the tester said after pummeling another ball. “The spin is probably on the lower end for my game, but I could basically replace my driver with it. I’m serious.” With a driver-like face construction, we believe it.
TaylorMade Stealth Plus fairway woods
The details: The 175cc Stealth Plus is built around the same ZATECH Titanium face found on the SIM and SIM2. The ultra-thin, resilient material maintains a high level of ductility while still promoting fast ball speeds across the entire structure. An 80-gram V Steel sole helps improve the overall forgiveness — Stealth Plus boasts the lowest CG even in an adjustable fairway wood — of the head without sacrificing turf interaction.
