TaylorMade have unveiled the new Stealth 2 hybrids

The Stealth 2 and Stealth 2 HD rescues are launched.

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Rescues

The TaylorMade Stealth 2 Rescues are new for 2023 as the second generation of the carbon hybrids. How do they rate vs the Stealth.

Part of the new Stealth 2 family of drivers and woods, the rescues feature the Stealth, Stealth HB and Stealth Plus and are the successors to the popular series launched at the start of 2022.

The new hybrids have been designed with “fargiveness” in mind thanks to a perfect CG, tweaked V Steel design which works with the carbon crown and Inverted Cone Technology to consistent performance from any lie.

In this article, we take a look at the changes made to the Stealth 2 model, what you can expect if adding them to the bag and if they are worth upgrading to.

What TaylorMade says about the Stealth 2 Recues:

“Reachable par 5s. Tight par 4s. Long par 3s. Bring ’em on.

“With advanced Inverted Cone Technology and precision CG for high launch, the all-new Stealth 2 Rescues is like a cheat code. Helping you take on any shot that stands in your way.

“The center of gravity is positioned lower in the head compared to the original Stealth Rescue, delivering a more centered CG projection for optimal launch and spin.

“A mass pad positioned at the back of the club further increases MOI for forgiveness and playability.

“With a larger overall profile and a deep CG, the Stealth 2 HD Rescue is designed to deliver high launching shots that travel long-iron distances.

“Higher lofts encourage easy launch and greater success for a wide range of golfers, while the draw-bias design helps keep shots on target.”

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Rescues Specs & Design

TaylorMade have made tweaks to the Stealth 2 rescues rather than ripped up the original design and made a huge number of changes.

The carbon construction remains the key element to the Stealth 2 hybrids to create an incredibly light rescue.

Weight has been saved further to allow the CG to move lower than the Stealth for an improved launch angle and reduced spin rates off the face.

The Stealth 2 hybrid also now features a mass pad of weight positioned at the rear of the club head to increase the MOI in the model and add more forgiveness.

The ball flight is honed further thanks the the heavy V steel sole design remaining on the sole of the club.

The hybrids once again combine that carbon crown with a high strength C300 steel Twist Face Technology face and the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket behind the face.

The newest addition is the Inverted Cone Technology, with a tweak to the face design to optimise for even more ball speed even on mis-hits and off center strikes.

The Stealth 2 rescues are available in 3-hybrid (19 degrees), 4-hybrid (22 degrees), 5-hybrid (25 degrees), 6-hybrid (28 degrees) and 7-hybrid (31 degrees).

TaylorMade Stealth 2 HD Rescues Design & Features

TaylorMade have added a HD version of the Stealth 2 hybrids to the conforming list to match the same range we see in the drivers and fairway woods.

It is this model that is the major change to the series with the High Draw version having more weight positioned towards the heel for a draw-bias shot shape.

The profile of the HD model is larger than the standard version, and as a result the CG moves even deeper in these rescues.

The end result is a high launch angle from the Stealth 2 HD, more distance and most importantly a straighter ball flight.

The lofts in these hybrids are also slightly weaker than the standard version to help promote that higher launch and ball flight.

TaylorMade Stealth 2 HD Hybrids

The High Draw rescues feature the combined carbon crown and V Steel sole design as well as the C300 steel Twist Face Technology face and the newly-adjusted Inverted Cone Technology.

The Stealth 2 HD rescues are available in 3-hybrid (20 degrees), 4-hybrid (23 degrees), 5-hybrid (27 degrees) and 6-hybrid (31 degrees).

Verdict: Are the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Rescues any good?

TaylorMade have worked hard on making weight savings compared to the original Stealths to be able to move the center of gravity lower and deeper.

They have achieved that and can quite right claim that the Stealth 2 rescues are more forgiving than the previous version.

The tweaks to the face and technology behind hit mean you can expect more distance when not even finding the middle of it and the consistency the Stealth 2s offer is impressive.
