Taylormade Stealth Vs. Taylormade SIM Max Driver Comparison Overview
The original SIM Max driver broke the doors wide open in terms of distance and forgiveness. It was a revelation when it came out and is still highly valued today. In a lot of ways, the Taylormade Stealth driver echoes the merits of the original SIM Max driver.
At a glance, anyone can see that some of the features and technology used in the SIM Max driver is present in the Stealth drivers. But there are things that don’t show up on paper – important performance details. Let’s take a look at how these drivers stacked up to one another.
Taylormade Stealth Driver Overview
The Taylormade Stealth driver’s face is comprised of 60 sheets of carbon fiber – no metal is used.
Right off the bat, this gives this driver a unique look and feel. One of our favorite things about the Taylormade Stealth driver is that it was very light and wieldy in the hands. It’s a joy to swing as the light head gives way to the low CG and sole panel that pulls your swing downward effortlessly.
The Taylormade Stealth driver still features the Twist Face design that curves the face a bit to correct mis-hits and the Speed Pocket which enhances face flex. But our slower swing speed testers were getting a boost between 2 and 4 MPH in their swing with the Taylormade Stealth driver.
This was uncanny. The aerodynamic design and the perfect weight to strength ratio not only made this driver a joy to swing; but it improved key swing metrics as well.
Taylormade SIM Max Driver Overview
The Taylormade SIM Max was introduced to be one of the most forgiving and long drivers on the market.
And we’re happy to report that it is still that. The SIM Max generates effortlessly straight shots and the original Inertia Generator produces high MOI and distance. There is a huge difference in feel between the SIM Max and the Stealth driver though.
The Taylormade Stealth was much more comfortable to swing and legitimately helped increase swing speed while the SIM Max felt heavy and a bit clunky. Distance was comparable – only for our fast swing speed testers though.
The Taylormade Stealth improves upon almost every performance aspect of the Taylormade SIM Max driver. It’s lighter, longer, more aerodynamic, and has a more satisfying feel all while providing the same level of forgiveness as the SIM Max.
