Here is an example. This is from last night. Didn't get a read on club data due to the foot spray however path and aoa don't change more than 1* generally for me. Pretty much at a loss as to how I am doing this. And yes it happens on course so it is not LM. 

Try to catch the centroid a wee bit better... that should fix things 😆.  While the impact mark dosen't tell the whole story, it sure look great!

I'm a coach and fitter and just going to toss this out there: Of the 20-30 fittings I've done over the last month, only 2-3 times has the Stealth driver outperformed the others. Oftentimes, its been the shortest!

Wasn't the furthest for me, but it was the most consistent. I hit 10 shots in the fairway all within 7 yards of each other in distance with the Stealth+. The side to side dispersion from every other driver tested in my fitting was 50% or more than the Stealth+ was. I'll take that consistency over 5-10 more yards and worrying about hitting hazards.

Stop using foot spray. Just put a dry erase marker (NOT sharpie) line on the ball. Orient the line vertically before striking the ball. The dry erase marker will easily rub off both the club face and the ball. It will also leave a nice witness line on the club face. Lastly it will give you lie angle information you aren't getting right now. 

The other bonus is you aren't spraying goop all over your 600 dollar driver.

I have used both. This time I got a little liberal with the spray so covered too much of the dot. Nice thing is the foot spray does come off very easily with just water.

I just don't like goop on my driver. The dry erase marker comes off with just your thumb. 

Another advantage is a dry erase marker can be in your bag taking up very little room and it will last several seasons.

I've bought the stealth 12* as I'm finding it more difficult to get a higher launch angle with my 9.5* SIM driver as I get older now 71, I have 5-6 Taylormade shafts to play with from reg to xstiff so waiting impatiently for delivery from USA...

You do realize carbon is used in MANY industries and can be shaped into many different forms…? This would be no different.

Not sure what that has to do with my question. I'm just wondering if TM is using the Twist Face technology?  I had an M5 and was really amazed at how corrective it was of mishits.

From the website:

Weight savings from the 60X Carbon Twist Face, which is 44% lighter than titanium, allows more mass to be positioned low in the head for added forgiveness compared to Stealth Plus.

I can tell you that the thing is very straight - the regular Stealth at least - if you are someone who likes to work the ball it's very hard to curve - I hit shots that I know are duck hooks and they barely bend at all.

Taylor Made Stealth 10.5  Aldila Ascent Red R flex

Ping G410 5, 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 5-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

Very interesting, when mine arrives I'm hoping for that exact result...

I 2nd that. I've LOVED mine so far. And I don't know if its the head or the stock Ventus shaft but the combo of the 2 are just working for me. Have i had bad shots, yes. But far less than my old M6 it feels like. And not nearly as bad of ones too

I actually had a 250 yard drive yesterday in summer like conditions and it split the middle of the fairway - good thing because it was too long - It brought stuff into play that I don't normally even think about in the summer time - occasionally on a windy day in the late winter/early spring but never in the rainy season - and the fairway was very wet where my drive ended up.

Gotta love that, I'm playing an old Callaway C4 8* driver while waiting for mine and I'm carrying 195 meters straightest. Good training for the real thing lol, keep up the good work...

If yall havent watched the video on the H2H matchup of the Sim2 v. the Stealth+, DEFINITELY go watch it: 

 

 

For anyone under 105mph swing speed, they will pick up more yards over the LAST iteration of club (Sim2) Imagine the yardage pickup for OLD drivers. Interesting how the slower swing players will benefit from the technology more! Great video though and loving these short videos MGS is putting out there.

I played with a fitter this week and he said Taylormade is 4th in sales for them this year. Callaway is #1, Ping #2, and Cobra #3. I thought that was very interesting.
