TaylorMade Stealth Rescue Hybrid
Who’s It For?
The new TaylorMade Stealth line extends well beyond drivers and fairway woods, as the excellent Stealth Rescue and Stealth Rescue Plus+ hybrids prove. The Stealth Rescue clubs both boast a slew of technological innovations that make them suited for two different types of golfers. With a relatively sleeker profile and an additional low-loft option, the adjustable TaylorMade Stealth Rescue Plus+ appears to fit the lower handicap golfer better. Higher handicap golfers may well end up taking a longer look at the Stealth Rescue, which sports a more confidence-inspiring profile, and will launch the ball slightly higher with less spin.
The Tech Story
One major technological aspect of the TaylorMade Stealth Rescue is the hybrid’s new Carbon Crown. By saving 7g of weight, the crown let TaylorMade engineers relocate the excess mass to increase MOI, thereby increasing the club’s forgiveness. The new V Steel Sole Design only bolsters the forgiveness of the Stealth Rescue, while also improving turf interaction and optimizing launch properties. Finally, the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket design makes the driver extremely hot without sacrificing that added forgiveness, particularly on low face strikes.
