When can I buy the 2022 TaylorMade Stealth driver?

The new year was barely upon us when TaylorMade released details of its new driver range for 2022. The red, carbon-fibre faced Stealth drivers have caused a stir ever since the details landed on January 4th. The good news for those who are already eyeing up an investment is that in many places it’s already available to preorder. A number of golf retail websites both in the US and Europe are already listing the new models.
The key date for when the product will reach retail (and you’ll be able to see it for yourself in the flesh) is February 4th.

What to expect from the TaylorMade Stealth drivers

There are three in the range to choose from - the standard Stealth, the Stealth Plus which features a 10 gram moveable weight in the sole and the the Stealth HD designed for a higher launch and with a draw bias.
Take a look at our video review below of the new TaylorMade Stealth family of drivers.

How much does the TaylorMade Stealth Driver cost?

As you would expect, the new TaylorMade drivers come with a premium price-tag. The Stealth Plus is the more expensive of the three options costing $599.99 in the US and £499 in the UK. The standard Stealth and the Stealth HD come in at $579.99 and £469 respectively.

What is the stock shaft in the Stealth driver?

The TaylorMade Stealth might turn out to be one of the best golf drivers of 2022 but to get the most from the technology on offer, most players will want to go through a thorough custom fitting. As you would expect, each driver head is available with a range of custom shaft options at no additional cost. 

In the Stealth Plus this includes the Project X HZRDUS Smoke RDX Red 60 and Mitsubishi’s Kai’li White 60. In the standard Stealth the shaft options include the Fujikura Ventus Red 5 and in the Stealth HD the shaft options include the Fujikura Air Speeder 45.

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
