TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron

TaylorMade Golf has just announced a new addition to its collection of driving irons / utility irons. The new Stealth Bomber (could the name be any more on the nose?) joins the Stealth UHY and Stealth UDI driving irons as alternatives to your driver or 3-wood when finding the fairway is an absolute must.

What’s a fairway? Asking for a friend.

About the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron

A view of the cavity of the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron

True to the stealth name, the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber utility iron is flying a bit under the radar, or, at a minimum, it’s nearly invisible – at least by TaylorMade standards.

There’s no press release full of carefully curated and crafted quotes from the R&D team. Instead, it’s more of a what you see is what you get approach (especially if what you see is a Stealth Iron).

That’s driven by the reality that while the Stealth Bomber Iron is technically a new offering, the underlying tech is identical to what’s found in TaylorMade’s Stealth irons. We don’t need to rehash that here, but if you’re curious, here’s what that means.

Simply put, the Stealth Bomber iron can be thought of as a game improvement design adapted or expanded for golfers looking for distance off the tee along with plenty of forgiveness.

Speaking as a guy who has had a rough go of it off the tee this year, the Stealth Bomber is not without its appeal.

TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron Design Touches

The bomb graphic featured on the toe of the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron or Driving Iron

Given that the Stealth Bomber Iron might be considered more of a line extension than a totally new thing, it’s not totally surprising that it features a matte black PVD finish. As you’ve probably noticed, golf brands lean heavily on black when it’s time to make something old look new.

And yeah, the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber iron isn’t technically old, but as I said, the underlying tech dates back to the beginning of last season.

Other cosmetic details include a bomb graphic that replaces the club number on the toe (though the loft is still visible).

It also comes with a headcover inspired by historic fighter planes.

I’m torn here. I’ve very much anti-iron headcovers, and the Stealth Bomber headcover is way more iron than hybrid, but the shark design isn’t nearly as lame as your typical iron cover, so I’m willing to let it slide.

Specs, Pricing and Availability

TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron

Described by the company as a tee shot annihilator, the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron / Utility is available in 17° only. As is the case with many releases that fall towards the niche end of the spectrum, it’s available for right-handed golfers only (#SuckItCanada).

The stock shaft is a UST Mamiya Recoil Dart in 90S or 105X. The stock grip is a Golf Pride Z-Grip 360 58 Round +2.

Borrowing a page from the new Adams Golf, the TaylorMade Stealth Bomber Iron is a DTC-only offering, available exclusively through TaylorMadeGolf.com.

Retail Price is $249.99. Available now.

      What an odd proposition from taylormade. As a fitter the majority of players I see that play a long iron are good enough and prefer to see very minimal offset. I don’t see many low to mid handicaps putting this in their bag over the other driving/utility irons on the market (udi,hdy,zx,u505,tcb etc.) . And the golfer that would actually prefer that amount of offset normally has no business playing an iron longer than 4. It’s just all around so niche, I’d imagine potential buyers are few and far between or they’re taylormade fetishizing cretins.

      You can buy a Stealth 4-iron with the same shaft and have them deloft it 1.5* for $100 less than this. Is the extra money just for the headcover and emoji logo? What am I missing here?

      Loft, Lie, weight and length. Bomber is 3/4 inch longer, d2 vs d1 swing weight. lie is just a 1/2 degree change between. Interesting though.
      I use my 4 off the tee all the time. 18.5 degree. Love it. Fairway finder on tight conditions.

      loft, lie and length are free adjustments through TaylorMade custom shop. The extra length and different shaft are most likely the reason for the swing weight difference.

      I’m intrigued…when my woods aren’t flying right I rely on the 4 heavily. I wonder if I could keep the stock 4 and do this to another

      Custom headcovers are typically over $100. Also there are custom graphics on the club head. 👍

      They’re trying to capitalize on the Nike Vapor driving iron top golfers on tour are using.

      Let me get this right….$250 for a one-size fits all no-customizations what-so-ever (besides flex) driving iron that I can’t demo before buying and which has no type of playability guarantee like Sub70 has for a DTC offering? Hard pass on principle alone.

      $250 for a club you can’t even test out? I think they’ve absolutely missed a trick there, the more hands you can get it in then the more sales you can make,. Why would anyone buy this DTC without hitting it when you can buy a UDI or DHY off-the-shelf? Don’t get me wrong, even as someone who isn’t the biggest TM fan, the name and headcover design are great selling points, i’m just surprised it’s not going into stores and that they’re not shouting about it more in the standard Taylormade way.

      It sold it out but has 2.3 stars on Taylormade’s own website – for many of the same reasons listed above.
