Get ready for a showdown between two remarkable iron sets: Stealth HD and Stealth irons. Both sets of clubs are designed to enhance your game and help you hit more successful shots more often, but they have some significant differences that might make one set more suitable for you than the other.
The Stealth HD irons are designed for golfers in the max game improvement category. The unique shape of these irons features a compact head design and a wide sole to keep the center of gravity low and improve launch. The 5-7 irons have a lower profile face and a squattier appearance, while the 8-iron is the transitional point, and the 9i-PW has a more traditional game improvement shape. The progressive shaping optimizes the performance of each club while maintaining forgiveness and playability. The Stealth HD irons also have an increased sole curvature and innovative step-down design along the bottom of the club to create a higher impact point on the face and help get the ball airborne faster.
On the other hand, the Stealth irons are designed to look minimalistic and elegant while packing in a ton of tech to deliver a performance-enhancing powerhouse. The major engineering feat of the Stealth irons is the Cap Back Design with toe wrap construction, which links the entire topline to the backbar to improve sound, feel, ball speed and distance. This design drops the CG up to 0.8mm in some heads, making the 4 and 5-irons noticeably easier to launch in the air. The Stealth irons also feature the ECHO Damping System and Inverted Cone Technology to channel away vibrations and strategically position the sweet spot progressively toe-ward for increased accuracy.
Now, let's talk about which set of irons is right for you. If you're a new or max-game-improvement golfer, the Stealth HD irons might be the perfect fit. The unique shape of these irons is designed to help you hit more successful shots more frequently by improving launch and keeping the center of gravity low. The progressive shaping also ensures that each club is optimized for performance while maintaining forgiveness and playability.
If you're a golfer looking for a more elegant and minimalistic set of clubs while still packing in the latest technology, then Stealth irons is the choice. The Cap Back Design with toe wrap construction drops the CG and makes the long irons easy to launch, while the ECHO Damping System and Inverted Cone Technology contribute to the forged-like feel.
In conclusion, both the Stealth HD irons and the Stealth irons are packed with a ton of technology that make them very playable and easy to enjoy. Of course, the best way to tell which one is right for you is to get fit.
Nowadays, Certified TaylorMade fitting locations can uniquely fit Stealth and Stealth HD irons for loft using the new Select Fit Kit. Most players have never experienced loft options during an iron fitting. Still, it's just as important, if not more, than a driver fitting. With irons, it's all about the delivery of dynamic loft (the actual loft at impact) and the presentation of the face as it contacts the ball. It's a massive driver of overall performance as well as distance, launch and spin.
"Get used to loft fitting. It's going to become standard practice in an iron fitting. We're paving the way and continuing to provide the best possible tools for our fitters and the golfers they service. We're just getting started with Stealth irons."Matt Bovee, Senior Director of Product Creation, Irons

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
