What it does: The carbon-composite technology of last year’s ground-breaking drivers has received an upgrade. The amount
of titanium has been reduced to just a thin frame around the carbon-composite face. This means more forgiveness and even lower spin. Last year’s breakout carbon-composite face is now variably thick for more flexing across a wider area.
Why we like it: A carbon-composite face isn’t magic, but its
extraordinary weight savings better delivers the mass of the clubhead into the ball. It also weighs about half of a titanium face, and the lighter the face the more effective the trampoline. The head improves stability by balancing more mass front and back.
Which one’s for me? The Stealth 2 will do the job for most average golfers: forgiving with a 20 percent larger sweet spot. The Stealth 2 Plus is the low-spin model designed for better players looking for slight draw or fade adjustments. The HD model fights that dreaded low slice by putting more weight towards the heel, building a more upright lie angle and increasing launch.

“Understated but exceptional looks. It’s elegant, like it was designed in a secret Air Force hangar. Energetic in my hands, forceful at impact.”
