TaylorMade Stealth, Stealth HD & Stealth Plus Drivers
The new TaylorMade Stealth driver, Stealth HD driver and Stealth Plus driver are new for 2022 as a successor to the hugely popular TaylorMade SIM 2 drivers.
The Stealth driver and Stealth HD (High Draw) driver include the Speedpocket, fixed weight at the back of the sole and Twist Face Technology which were all part of the SIM 2 range.
The big difference is that the new Stealth are a “carbonwood” rather than a metal wood. TaylorMade have gone to a full carbon club head with the crown now joined by a “60X Carbon Twist Face” composite club face.
The Stealth Plus+ model is the more adjustable of the two drivers with a 10g adjustable weight that allows this driver to be set up on a sliding scale from draw to fade and replaces the SIM 2 Max and SIM 2 Max D.
Cobra LTDx Drivers
Cobra King LTDx drivers are new for 2022 and feature three models in the LTDx, LTDx LS and LTD Max.
The LTDX drivers are the Longest Total Distance yet from Cobra with a PWR-COR Technology designed central to unlocking more ball speed and distance than in any previous driver.
The LTDx driver is the standard model in the range. It includes weight positioned directly behind the hitting zone to increase speed of the reengineered club face to reduce spin and increase distance.
The LS model of the LTDx driver is the low spin version with weight positioned even further forward than the standard model for the lowest amount of spin and more forgiveness.
The LTDx LS driver is the most workable of the three models and boasts a high straight ball flight to help cure a slice.
The LTDx Max driver is the draw-bias version of the range with weighting positioned towards the heel and back to create shot shaping.
Two sole weights of 10g and 3g allow you do adjust the amount of draw from the Max driver. With the 10g weight positioned back, the Max produces up to five yards of draw, while it is up to 11 yards with the heavier weight in the heel.
Callaway Rogue ST Drivers
Callaway Rogue ST drivers are new for 2022 with four models in the new range – the Max, Max D, Max LS and Triple Diamond LS.
All four feature Callaway’s Jailbreak Speed Frame and Artificial Intelligence Flash Face, and they are now joined by a Tungsten Speed Cartridge in the new Rogues.
The Max is what Callaway describe as the standard version of the driver and built to be an ideal choice for golfers of all abilities.
The Max D driver is largely similar to the Max, but this model has a significant draw bias and a stretched profile to help eradicate the dreaded slice from your game.
The Max LS driver is the low spin option in the range and designed to produce a piercing trajectory and neutral ball flight for maximum distance.
This Triple Diamond LS driver is very similar in profile and performance to the LS, but features Callaway’s Triple Diamond club head which is a more compact 450cc option.
Mizuno STG-200 Drivers
The Mizuno STG-220 driver has just one model but features three adjustable tracks and two weights to create a number of different setup options.
The ST-G 220 can be using adjusted using what Mizuno call the X and Y axis to create a driver with draw, fade or neutral bias as well as adjusted from a central track to provide a low, medium or high ball flight.
In total there are eight loft settings to add further to the adjustability of the ST-G 220, while two 8G weights can be positioned in any of the tracks to suit ball shape and trajectory.
The club face is made from a beta-rich titanium and has 8% more flexibility than in previous models. It produces impressive ball speeds even from off-centre strikes.
PXG 0811 GEN4 Drivers
The PXG 0811 GEN4 driver is the fourth generation and was new for 2021 when three model options were introduced with the launch of the XT, X and XF.
All three versions of the new driver feature new technological advances to deliver more ball speed, distance and forgiveness than in any previous PXG model.
The XT is known as Xtreme Tour and is the premium option for fast swing speeds. The X is the standard option offering distance and forgiveness, while the XF is Xtreme Forgiveness.
The GEN4 version of the PXG driver now has a new hybrid carbon crown for increased stiffness and durability, a high-strength Ti412 titanium face, robotic polishing on the face thickness and curvature and a Honeycomb TPE insert.
The new look has been created to generate greater ball speeds and distance, but all come with a significant price tag.
Titleist TSi Drivers
Titleist TSi drivers are the latest releases in the Titleist Speed series, with two models available – the TSi2 and TSi3.
The big development in the Titleist TSi drivers is the ATI face, a new addition. ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium is used to create a super strong face to extract more speed and produce more accurate performance across the face.
The TSi2 driver is billed as “Pure Distance” and is the choice for players wanting to add ball speed from across the entire face without losing accuracy.
Titleist’s TSi3 driver comes with the slogan “Dynamic Distance” and is less about ball speed and more about a consistent connection and the adjustability of CG. It is the ATI face that helps create consistent ball striking no matter where you connect.
The TSi2 driver has a fixed weight at the back of the sole, and the TSi3 has a sliding weight at the back of the club head.
