    1. Every new drive that comes out they say this is the best ever made.. like come on people don’t fall for this nonsense. Plus they all get free product, they most definitely won’t talk bad about the products

    2. @Brett WilsonI mean that depends on who you watch. From this video I wouldn’t say he said good things about the product.

    1. @Rick Shiels Golf could you upload this review and the Callaway to your review channel as well to get it started?

    2. Shouldn’t all these new driver reviews have been on the new channel? Quick way to get a lot of views/subscribers I would think?

    3. Rick and Guy…I have to say Im disappointed in your schedule with driver release….I know the last thing you want to do is show bias and have a process you want to get through with each new product however it is hard to look past the cobra review being pushed back and the taylormade vid being released before the ping video. Can I suggest that in future you look at possible “shorts” or an initial thoughts video if companys are not giving you enough time to get through your process….Thanks

  1. I have to say I do love your honesty it makes a huge difference that you’re not shoving one driver down our throats that you’re giving an honest review. Makes it so much better in trying to make a decision on what to buy. Thank you Rick!

    1. @elemenopee the Paradym showed good numbers.
      He only mentioned it as it’s another 2023 driver he’s just reviewed and therefore a direct competitor to the stealth.

    2. @Jonny D It was more of a joke than an actual comment, my bad. I attempted to use italic to highlight my sarcasm.

  2. I had the same experience with Titleist drivers. Lots of talk about the new TSR series of drivers and woods so I went down to the PGA Superstore to try them out. No difference I could tell between them and the TS2 I have from 2019, except a huge price increase.

    1. I have a TS2 fitted with Hzrdus Smoke stiff I still out drive my mates. I thinks its the perfect driver Long and forgiving.

    2. Same with my Rogue max. Had a golf galaxy Indoor sim day not too long ago. Was able to try out some new drivers ( new at the time like the stealth 1.0, G425, Ltdx ). Wasn’t able to notice any REAL difference in stats to justify dropping another $600 on a club 🤷🏾‍♂️ Did try some new wedges and ended up picking up a Mizuno T22 Blue chrome is 46 degrees and it’s absolutely amazing

  3. Rick at his best, making reviews, testing equipment and giving his hoenest and objective opinion. Love it

    1. Wholeheartedly disagree to be honest. Rick is honest but not a great reviewer, very pedestrian. Still a fan but his on course content is so much better than others whereas his reviews are down there with/behind other creators.

    2. @Chris ricks golf course content is very poor in comparison to other channels, goodgood, regecy, bryson, luke kwon, micah morris i could go on, also his golf quality, content is below par and not in the good sense. His colabs are not that interesting either, nor are his challenges rick doesn’t have the skill nor is he competetive enough to make it exciting not like all the above mentioned youtubbers. His saving grace are his reviews and his honesty.

    3. @gavin harvey there really is no saving grace then as watching this poorly communicated review compared to the TXG boys in person with each of the big manufacturers actually communicating the details of the heads and why they are what they are (for example the gloss carbon, Rick hasn’t got a clue why they changed) he can’t hold a candle to them. The oncourse work is better as its relatable, Matt for good good is the most annoying person on this planet and the good golfers have left, Micah is more boring than a painted wall drying (good golfer though), obviously Bryson is interesting but he’s a content creator third (behind pro golf and long drive). His oncourse work is far better than the reviews but looks not a leader in either I guess.

  4. Your review of the original Stealth was the main reason I steered away from it when I replaced my driver last year. I trusted what you said about it. And, of course, after I watched your review of it, continued to watch many others to see what others found. In the end, most of the other reviewers found exactly the same thing that you did. Not as forgiving on off-center hits, not as forgiving directionally, either. After all was said and done, I ended up with the Cobra LTDx LS, which I’ve been extremely happy with.

    Keep on with the honest reviews, Rick. That’s what makes your information trustworthy.

  5. Great honest review as always Rick. I actually have the original stealth and have never hit the ball straighter. Took to it really well. Won’t upgrade just yet though don’t see the need. Keep up the amazing work you do and thanks

  6. Again another excellent unbiased review. I wish everyone could be as honest as you rather than just bigging up every single driver evey year. Keep up the good work.

  7. I always watch Ricks club reviews for there accuracy and honesty. Personally, I did try out the Stealth last year and didn’t get on with it at all. However, I have just been fitted for a Callaway Mavrik 2020 Driver which was brand new and for less than half the price of any current new top brand club. It shocked me just how good it is, faster club head and ball speed from the word go! This was after going back through Ricks reviews and finding his video on the Mavrik driver range.

  8. This is what I found when I bought a driver over the summer. I hit the Rogue and the Stealth on the sim. Rogue was pretty straight, but the Stealth was all over the place. Granted, I’m about a 20 handicap, but if it were between the Stealth and my old R7, I would have kept using the R7.

    I ended up with the Rogue…and I might need to upgrade after watching the Paradym. video.

    1. Could probably get 8 weeks of lessons for the price. Or if you can afford it, get the lessons first then upgrade and get fit for the new Callaway!

  9. See I find the Stealth amazing ! One factor I will assume is that Golfers don’t look at swapping out the weights on it vs sticking with the stock setup. I swapped both my weights on the Stealth + and I was longer by 7.4 yards and my average dispersion right and left is 3.8 yards left and 5.7 yards right.

  10. Maybe on a different day, these clubs would perform differently. Hope you come back to these at some point to see if the outcome is the same. On another note, it just seems like a few months ago we were being told the first Stealth was the dogs danglies and now we’re getting a better one. All becoming a bit tiresome IMO.

  11. I have to say I found Stealth exactly the same , unpredictable at best , I am a low handicap player but really struggled with this driver , can’t see the Stealth 2 being any better. It’s a big L for me from Taylormade.

  12. Appreciate the honest feedback. All the other reviewers being invited by manufactures to review clubs at their facilities…. Expect some friendly critiques. Rick always stays true to the review and gives his honest feedback. Thanks Rick!

  13. The one thing I miss with all of these driver and club reviews was having the Mid to High handicap hitting and trying them. Rick is a good golfer and these numbers are great but not your avg person. I would love to see the Mid to high handicap review again.

  14. Love how ping managed to settle for less distance but maximize forgiveness in their older models since it seems a lot more complicated to make a forgiving driver than a long distance driver.

    1. To make a driver long, you just have to bring the spin down, however, that can make the ball less controllable. To make it forgiving, you have to increase the MOI around the face, while making sure spin doesn’t get too high but still high enough to provide stability. That’s a much tougher task

  15. I’ve been getting a wood fitting today and these literally arrived at the fitters mid session. Hit the driver straight out of the box. Looks at address are outrageous but for me was just turning the ball over too much and spinning up too much when hit off the bottom. Been fitted for a Cobra of some sort.

  16. Given how well you’ve been driving the ball on break 75 lately, this would really give me pause in putting this in the bag. When I hit the stealth, it was hard to connect my mind with the club head. It felt too light compared to my Calloway, and I couldn’t immediately tell the strike quality on impact. Not sure if that makes sense, but I wonder if that’s an issue others have.
