Stealth vs Stealth Plus – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing TaylorMade’s latest drivers. WRXer ‘Long Shot’ has put the two Stealth drivers up against each other and our members have been comparing and contrasting them in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • BallerNate: “I owned both and tested each one 5+ times at my indoor range locally. I don’t have a Trackman and wish I could’ve tested them both outdoors, but still Winter here in snowy Canada. What I found is that the Stealth Plus was very comparable to the OG SIM for me in terms of being low spinning and low launching, but definitely more forgiving and playable than the SIM. The STD Stealth was more comparable to the SIM2 Max in terms of forgiveness, launch, and spin and was the better fit for me overall.”
  • 2down: “I was hitting into nets, have had the stealth for a few weeks now and am pleased with my choice.”
  • SollyInGA: “I hit both over a long two day fitting. I was sure I would end up with the STD, but my numbers were better with the Plus. The STD was more forgiving, but not by much. My normal high-end distance is in the 280s. I was in that vicinity much more often with the PLUS. I’m a high ball hitter anyway, but the extra spin that I was getting with the STD was killing my distance. The fitter tried a variety of different shafts and flexes to try to tame the spin numbers with the STD, but once I started hitting the Plus it gave me the extra control that I needed to hit fairway finders and going for it a little more. I had trouble controlling the STD with those kinds of shots. I’m just a mid capper, but the choice was fairly easy for me. No regrets with the Plus for about a month now.”

Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company closes down after pandemic struggles

Published

on

Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company has confirmed that the business is no longer active after closing its doors last Friday, July 22, 2022.

The company enjoyed a re-inception in 2017, which included its majority shareholder and Manager of the Board for the BHGEC, Ex Works Capital, LLC, acting as the company’s primary source of funding.

However, according to BHGEQ’s CEO and President Scott White, after their investment portfolio was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the shareholder ceased providing financial support to BHGEC in late 2020.

In an email to GolfWRX, White stated:

“I am very proud of what we accomplished at the Company over the last few years. We had a great team and produced some excellent products that we think would have made Mr. Hogan proud. We were simply underfunded and couldn’t pursue a lot of the more expensive initiatives that would have accelerated our growth.”

Per White, after understanding that they could not provide the capital to the BHGEC to fuel continued growth, ExWorks Capital began a sales process (managed by Chiron Financial Investment Bank) in mid-2021 to identify new investors and/or sources of funding. This process was mostly unsuccessful for several reasons, and ExWorks Financial filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2022.

Despite this, White added that BHGEC was mostly self-sufficient in 2021 and enjoyed its best year ever since pivoting to its DTC business model in 2017. Per White, the average revenue growth rate (2017 – 2022) was over 46.3%, while the company was break even at an operating level in 2021 and would have achieved (and surpassed) profitability targets if not for supply and financial constraints.

The website is still currently operating but features a banner noting that it is “unable to process orders.” While the company closed last Friday, White revealed in the email that he hoped it wouldn’t be permanent but added that it might well be.
