With 2022 steadily coming to an end we’re keen to take a look at the 2023 TaylorMade Driver release cycle and what we might expect from this golfing powerhouse. One of the biggest questions is whether we’ll see a continuation of the carbon technology put in place in the TaylorMade Stealth driver. Given the incredible levels of sales and the positive response from TaylorMade’s faithful’s to the new innovation, it’d be hard to see them going away from carbon so quickly – it certainly seems here to stay.
The TaylorMade Stealth driver was an immediate success on tour with the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Collin Morikawa all put the Stealth straight in play and saw immediate gains. The original Stealth driver lineup consisted of the Stealth, Stealth Plus and Stealth HD. The first player seeding of the Stealth occurred in December 2021 and not long after we saw it in use on both PGA and DP World Tours. It was officially released in February 2022 and since then has seen enormous global success with golfers keen to put carbon in play.
There is no doubt that given the massive amount of research and development that went into the carbon faced Stealth that TaylorMade will continue with this incredibly exciting material. Previous years have seen a very consistant release cycle from TaylorMade with a new driver arriving at the start of each year. If we trace back to 2018 and the release of the M3 and M4 that line up arrived in February 2018. The following year we had the release of the M5 and M6 in February 2019. The original SIM arrived in February 2020 and the SIM2 in February 2021. With the Stealth driver having been released in February 2022 its no surprise that we’re anticipating a February 2023 release of the TaylorMade 2023 driver.
The question of course is what will the driver bring, look like and be called? Are we looking at a TaylorMade Stealth 2 following suit of the SIM2 lineup or something completely different? When looking at the recent trademarks that TaylorMade have registered it shows a number of exciting new additions that do sound rather catchy and interesting. It remains to be seen what TaylorMade will create but we have no doubt that whatever is released in 2023 it will continue the rich vein of excellence in product development, innovation and design that TaylorMade are well known for.
