In a strategic shift, the Qi10 series is breaking away from the traditional focus on sheer distance, presenting itself as the most forgiving driver line currently available in the market.

The Qi10 is for players looking for a blend of high forgiveness, mid-launch, and distance. The Qi10 Max is for the player looking for maximum forgiveness and high launch while the Qi10 LS is for the lower handicap player looking for lower launch, lower spin, and maximum distance while keeping a high level of forgiveness.

This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of these driver heads, exploring the features and advancements that make them stand out in the 2024.

Join us as we delve into the latest evolution from TaylorMade and discover how the Qi10 series is poised to redefine the golfing experience.

TaylorMade Qi10 Max Driver

TaylorMade Qi10 MAX

Release to the public just a few days ago on January 9th, the TaylorMade Qi10 Max breaks the mold for what TaylorMade drivers typically stand for.

This year, the development team at TaylorMade has created their highest moment of interia (MOI) driver they have ever done before.

Crafted from lightweight materials with strategic mass placement, the Qi10 boasts a total MOI of 10,000 g-cm2.

This higher MOI creates more forgiveness and less twisting on off-center hits.

To put this MOI number in perspective it gets TaylorMade where Ping, known for their forgivness, has been for a few years now since the Ping G425 max driver.

To acheive such a high level of forgviness, TaylorMade has created a deep and low Center of Gravity (CG) for optimal launch and spin control while maintaining a high MOI.

In addition, they have refigured the head to an elongated shape to maximize weight distribution to the perimeter of the club, aiding in stability on off-center strikes.

Just like both Stealth generations, the Qi10 Max also features a 60x carbon twist face that helps preserve ball speed on off-center hits and reduce weight that can be redistributed elsewhere on the clubhead.

The Qi10 Max driver is available in lofts of 9, 10.5, and 12 degrees for both left and right handed players.

It also comes with a stock swingweight of D4 which is slightly heavier than most other drivers on the market.

TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver

The LS model of the Qi10 is crafted for the better high speed player who is looking for a lower launch with lower spin.

Compared to past tour models however, this year’s head still boasts an incredibly high level of forgivness due to its carbon crown that extends direclty into the face.

This infinity crown made it possible for TaylorMade to redistribute some mass that was previously in un-advantageous positions, to different areas on the head, creating a more stable and forgiving option.

Additionally, the Qi10 LS features an eighteen gram sliding weight directly behind the face similar to the Stealth 2 plus.

Improved for this year, TaylorMade has moved this weight’s position lower and further forward to promote higher forgiveness with less spin.

Just like the Max head, the LS head also features 60x carbon twist face technology.

The Qi10 LS head is available in 9 and 10.5 degrees for left and right handed players and is availalbe in 8 degrees for right-handed players only.

Just like the Max head, the LS also comes at a stock D4 swing weight which is pretty heavy on the market.

The plain Qi10 driver gives players the perfect blend of forgiveness and distance while still keeping a much higher level of forgiveness than previous models in this category.

The Qi10 features just as high MOI as the Max head but is not engineered as a game improvement driver.

Similar to the Max head it features a shallow face and elongated body that looks great sitting on the ground.

Featuring the 60x carbon twist face as well, the regular Qi10 offers features found in both the Max and LS head options and is for the player looking for distance and forgiveness.

TaylorMade Qi10 Family

The Qi10 is availbe in 9 and 10.5 degrees of loft for all players while right-handers also have access to a 12 degree head.

Just like the Max and LS head options, the regular Qi10 also comes with a stock swing weight of D4.

Common Features

60x Carbon Twist Face

Continuing from the Stealth line of products that brought the first driver to market with a carbon face, TaylorMade is sticking with this design with the Qi10 lineup.

Infinity Carbon Crown

To further reduce the amount of unnecessary weight on un-advantageous parts of the club, TaylorMade has created a new crown made of 97% carbon that seamlessly flows into the club face.

This allows them to redistribute weight to the perimeter of the club, increasing stability and forgiveness.

Crisp Top-line

In a recent interview about the Qi10 driver lineup, Tiger Woods spoke about how much he liked the look at setup. Each driver in this series features a crisp white topline distinguishing between the crown and face.

Improved Energy Transfer

TaylorMade improved the way they attach the carbon face to the body of the driver to help preserve ball speed on off-center strikes.

Stock Shaft Options

As usual, TaylorMade does a great job a tayloring their handpicked stock shaft options to the player that will most likely be purchasing each club.
