TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron Review (Long Iron STINGER Specialist)

The Bomber iron is new for 2023, designed to deliver stingers

The Bomber is an extension of the Stealth irons set.

TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron

The TaylorMade Stealth Bomber iron has been launched with promises of delivering stinger after stinger from fairways or tee boxes.

The Bomber is part of the family of Stealth irons, featuring all the same technology like Cap Back Design with toe wrap construction, a lower center of gravity and a larger sweet spot.

The all-black Bomber iron is only available in 3-iron with a 17-degree loft and has been designed to deliver stingers and low ball flights as an alternative to woods and hybrids.

We take a look at the new arrival for 2023, who it suits and just what you can expect if adding the Bombers into the top end of your bag.

What TaylorMade says about the Stealth Bomber irons:

“This strong lofted, tee shot annihilator is a stinger waiting to happen. If you’re looking for an alternative to driver or 3-wood that’s way too powerful to call a fairway finder, Stealth Bomber is the club for you.

“A special club deserves a special headcover, and this one is inspired by historic fighter planes. When you remove the headcover your playing partners will know that your next tee shot is ready to take flight.

“This club is so explosive we replaced the number with a bomb emoji, so each swing is like striking the fuse and watching it detonate.

“After you hit this 17° juggernaut, which produces a penetrating trajectory with heavy roll out, you’ll need another emoji to describe the result.

“Powered by the same technology as Stealth irons, the Stealth Bomber features Cap Back Design with toe wrap construction as well as an intelligently positioned sweet spot that spans the most common impact points, delivering enhanced forgiveness with explosive ball speeds.”

TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron Specs & Design

The first thing to say about this new Bomber iron is that it isn’t a set, but a one off club with a specific use.

A 3-iron with 17 degrees of lift, the Bomber is all about a low ball flight, stinger-like shots that travel long distances from the tee or the fairway.

The Stealth Bomber has been created by TaylorMade to act as an alternative to 3-wood or driver and find fairway after fairway.

The design of the long iron is based on the popular Stealth range with forgiveness as well as ball speed thanks to the Cap Back Design with toe wrap construction.

The centre of gravity is low in the Bomber, allowing for the sweet spot to be enlarged to help maintain the impressive ball speeds even on off center strikes.

TaylorMade’s Thru-Slot Speed Pocket is present to increase the flexibility of the face and ensure no loss of distance or forgiveness on shots low off the face.

Verdict: Is the TaylorMade Bomber iron any good?

It is a stunning iron to look at, the same design as the likeable Stealth irons but in a sleek all-black colouring.

A 3-iron isn’t suited to everyone, particularly given the strong 17 degrees of loft, but if you can hit this sort of club then you can expect some bullet-like strikes from tee to green.

The trajectory of the Bombers is piercing and the length is stunning. If you are struggling for consistency off the tee with your driver or 3-wood, then this could be the answer you are looking for.
