TaylorMade Qi10 Driver

by | Jan 9, 2024 | Pro Shop

TaylorMade Golf has officially unveiled what it calls “the most forgiving family of drivers” it has ever produced in Qi10 Max, Qi10 LS, and Qi10. According to TaylorMade, the series unlocks a “new frontier of forgiveness,” with the Qi10 Max hitting the elusive total MOI (Moment of Inertia) of 10,000 g-cm².

In its simplest form, higher MOI = more forgiveness. Higher MOI reduces head rotation on off-center impacts, protecting ball speed on mis-hits and delivering more consistent launch conditions. This is measurable forgiveness. The Qi10 Max driver boasts a combined total MOI of 10,000 g-cm² (10K), a feat resulting from advanced lightweight materials, a reinvented head shape, and strategic placement of mass.

Introducing the Qi10 Max driver, experience TaylorMade speed with the forgiveness of 10K inertia.

TaylorMade says the forgiveness of Qi10 Max can benefit golfers of all skill levels, from the everyday golfer to major champions such as Team TaylorMade’s Nelly Korda and Collin Morikawa.

The Qi10 Max features a shallower head shape that extends from front to back, housing a concentrated mass at the extreme limit from CG. This unique head shape, TaylorMade says, contributes significantly to the clubhead’s inertia by allowing mass to be placed further from the center of the clubhead.

The Qi10 Max utilizes the third generation of 60X Carbon Twist Face, which TaylorMade says delivers a fast face on center strikes while also preserving ball speed on mis-hits. According to the company, this technology works in conjunction with a redesigned ledge that houses the face in a position that flexes in unison to optimize energy transfer at impact efficiently.

Available at retail beginning Feb. 2, Qi10 Max is priced at $599.99 USD and has loft offerings of 9.0° (RH/LH), 10.5° (RH/LH), and 12.0° (RH/LH). Shaft offerings are Fujikura Speeder NX TCS 50 (S, R, A) and Mitsubishi Diamana T+ 60 (X, S, R). Qi10 Max also comes in a women’s version at 10.5° and 12.0° lofts with Fujikura Speeder NX TCS 40 shaft.

A lightweight High & Light (HL) version of the Qi10 Max at 10.5° and 12.0° lofts will be available in custom.

Qi10 LS is priced at $629.99 USD and is offered in the following lofts: 8.0° (RH), 9.0° (RH/LH), 10.5° (RH/LH). It has two shaft options in the Mitsubishi Tensei AV Limited Blue 65 (R, S, X) and Mitsubishi Tensei AV Limited Black 65 (S, X).
