With a new year comes plenty new golf gear and TaylorMade is no exception to this rule.
In order to accommodate golfers of different skill levels, TaylorMade has for the first time released three rescue clubs under the same family name: the Stealth 2, Stealth 2 Plus+, and Stealth 2 HD.
With last year's TaylorMade Stealth Rescue focusing on distance and control, the new Stealth 2 family is said to be more versatile and forgiving, designed to fit golfers of all abilities.
"The versatility of Stealth 2 Plus will allow for this type of “rocket” setting, but ultimately, its greatest appeal is its versatility. Adjusting the movable weight creates noticeable performance differences in terms of launch, spin and distance, allowing golfers to dial in the preferred flight characteristics that their game, course and conditions require”
Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director of Product Creation
The compact, tour-inspired form of the Stealth 2 Plus Rescue is conducive to better shot-making. It combines the long iron's control with the Rescue's extra forgiveness.
For a more centralised CG projection that results in an ideal launch and spin, the CG is placed lower in the Stealth 2 head than it was in the original Stealth Rescue.
To increase forgiveness and playability, the MOI is also further increased by a mass pad placed at the back of the club.
The new member of the family, Stealth 2 HD, has a bigger but lower overall profile and internal draw-bias weighting to produce strong launch and easy-to-hit performance. Higher lofts than typical Rescue clubs encourage better launch, which helps players launch the ball more quickly at average swing speeds.
Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2 and Stealth 2 HD Rescues clubs will be available at retail on February 17th, 2023. The price of the hybrid varies depending on the model, the Stealth 2 Plus has an RRP of £249, whereas the Stealth 2 Rescue and Stealth 2 HD have an RRP of £239.
