    Indeed, how true.

      Well they need to find some new way to dupe people into spending their money on a new club when they probably don't need one ....so much smoke and mirrors and BS claims used , ..." square heads, triangular heads, 17 more yards , turbulators, twist face ...."

      but ya gotta give the marketers credit, they seem to be able to get away with it

      • Just ordered the Stealth woods. Sure hope they arrive before the season opens.

        • I think it is time golfers take their cue from the computer guys who habitually wait till version 1.1 debuts.

            Wow - I typically order in the fall for the following season, generally hoping to get a bit of a price break and the excitement has died down somewhat (Well, forget the former as prices seem to rarely go down significantly anymore at the end of the season)...

            I ordered my current bag of everything (See my WITB 2022 that I just posted), including SIM2 metals with very much in demand Fujikura Ventus Velocore shafts in January of 2021, and they all arrived just under 2 months later in March.

            I remember when I called inquiring of the order status in Feb, the guy at Taylormade said if I would have ordered my stuff just a week later than I did, I would be looking at June delivery!! (Believe the shafts are the biggest issue of course)...

            I'm just as tempted as most to order 'Stealth', but honestly I'm hoping later this year the logistics/manufacturing issues associated w/ the pandemic will die down, or worse comes to worse I'll buy 'off the rack' and just switch out the shafts.

            I was a touch 'worried' about the carbon face, but early reviews are very promising of course.

            These shipping delays are insane!

                  TaylorMade website states February 4th. I think GT is the same. Any update will post here.

                  • It seems MGS took offence with Shiels review of the Stealth.
                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ_qXELuTCg

                    MGS reviewed and critiqued golf products regularly sorting their performance suitability through a broad range of handicappers.
                    It was tor a time their most most interesting and ,sometime ,provocative feature.

                    Shiels contentious review.

                    • Mgs said Rick only hit 5-10 shots. In Ricks podcasted he said he hit about 150 balls at the TM even on both trackman and his gc quad , TM blamed cold balls. Then when he got back to his testing centre he hit more shots .

                      • I ordered the Stealth driver and the Mizuno ST-Z driver. Once I determine which is the best driver for me I will sell the other one. I think these two are the best drivers on the market today.

                        Thanks.

                        • Hit the Stealth today. Nice driver - sound was slightly muted, but completely fine. The red is not even that red. Just so happened that I felt a little more natural with the TSi3.

                          At one point I had the Stealth in with an autoflex shaft... wonderful combo - wasn't the day (or lifetime?) to drop 2k on a driver. Maybe I'd start a side hustle or start doing freelance work to pay for the Stealth + Autoflex.

                              TXG. Had booked a long game fitting back for today back in October (wanted something in early 2022) and inadvertently timed the Stealth release right.

                              For the record, I am upgrading from a TM r7, so I cannot give an opinion on Stealth v. Sim v. Sim2. You can probably guess that it was better than my r7 though lol. FWIW, fitter said he likes it and is putting it in his bag.

                                Nice, I have only heard the Stealth on videos, doesn't sound bad to me at all.

                                I find most drivers sound better outside than in a confined space.
