Few golf brands can claim breaking barriers as par for the course. But like the golfers we serve, every new achievement feels better than the last.

You remember the first time you broke 90…then 80…and if the golfing gods see fit, then 70. Hole in ones are unforgettable. Personal bests reset the bar, and every milestone opens the door to the next opportunity. In golf, no number is ever too low or, in this case, too high.

Like movable weights and carbon faces, the introduction of Qi10 marks another marquee moment in TaylorMade’s development of driver technology. Qi10 Max sets a new industry standard with a groundbreaking total MOI of 10,000, marking a significant leap in forgiveness.

And while Qi10 Max is the star of the show, each model features a discernable difference that makes it more playable for specific player types. Let’s dive into the differences and help you discover which model is the best fit for your game.

Explore the similarities and differences to discover the best match for your game.

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 level of forgiveness isn’t just a feeling; it’s something you can measure.

The Qi10 Max driver boasts a combined total MOI of 10,000 g-cm² (10K). This feat results from advanced lightweight materials, a reinvented head shape and strategic mass placement.

The forgiveness of Qi10 Max can benefit golfers of all skill levels, from the everyday golfer to major champions like Team TaylorMade’s Nelly Korda and Collin Morikawa, who’ve both put the driver in play in competition.

How do we achieve 10,000 MOI? It’s the result of an integration of three key technologies:

    TaylorMade’s advanced construction techniques strategically redistribute mass, creating a deep and low Center of Gravity (CG) for optimal launch and spin control while maintaining a high MOI.
    The Qi10 Max boasts a maximized front-to-back dimension, concentrating mass at the extreme limit away from the CG. This unique head shape enhances stability and minimizes deviation on off-center hits.
    Utilizing the third generation of 60X Carbon Twist Face, the Qi10 Max delivers a fast face on center strikes while preserving ball speed on mis-hits. The redesigned ledge optimizes energy transfer at impact.

Another differentiating component for Qi10 Max is the torque-control shaft, which features lower torque and reduces the tendency for the ball to veer off course. It’s a strategy that’s ingeniously counterintuitive. High torque shafts are generally associated with draw-biased, user-friendly game-improvement drivers because they provide more torsional rotation, which lets the face close faster to counter-punch the right miss.

However, with Qi10 Max’s 10K design and innate head stability, the lower torque shaft proved to tighten dispersion and help more shots start and stay on their intended line.

Compared to the Qi10 Max, the Qi10 LS is engineered for high-swing-speed players seeking a spin-scrubbing solution off the tee. With a deep face and more compact head shape, the Qi10 LS is the preferred driver for Team TaylorMade Tour athletes, including Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.

Utilized throughout the Qi10 family, the Infinity Crown marks a significant leap forward in TaylorMade’s carbon crown construction. By extending carbon fiber to the extreme perimeter of the head and aligning it flush with the top of the face, this new design maximizes mass savings. This innovative approach removes excess weight previously located in less advantageous positions, resulting in optimal mass redistribution for lower CG and better spin properties critical to players who choose the Qi10 LS driver.

Qi10 LS also incorporates a new, more efficient 18g steel sliding weight housed by an innovative track system. Strategic shaping along the sole is designed to deliver better aerodynamics with reduced turbulence. The redesigned structure allows the adjustable weight to move farther forward and lower relative to its predecessor, resulting in a lower balance point and optimized inertia for a more forgiving low-spin experience.

The Qi10 driver is strategically engineered to help players optimize

distance and maximize forgiveness, wrapped in a clean, confidence-inspiring package. Qi10 features lower CG projection and higher MOI than previous TaylorMade drivers in this category, creating a driver aimed at golfers seeking the ultimate blend of distance and forgiveness.

A brand-new, slightly larger address shape combined with the clean look of the Infinity Carbon Crown and a high contrast topline for enhanced alignment that inspires confidence for all levels of golfers.

Qi10’s re-engineered 60X Carbon Twist Face is significantly lighter than traditional titanium and creates a more efficient energy transfer with a new supporting structure that promotes faster ball speeds. The face is also designed to improve ball speed preservation on off-center shots.


  • Qi10 MAX
    This ultra-high MOI design delivers 10K inertia for maximum forgiveness. However, avoid falling into the trap of thinking this is a game-improvement club just for average golfers. The fact that Tour pros like Collin Morikawa and Nelly Korda have gamed it shows that players at every level can benefit from the added stability and forgiveness. If the shallow face and elongated overall profile fit your eye at address, then the benefits of Qi10 Max are unmatched.  It’s a club that every golfer should at least try, regardless of their skill level.
  • Qi10 LS
    This driver fits a particular player type. If you swing fast, hit it far and need to reduce spin, this is your choice. There’s also the added benefit of adjustability that many TaylorMade aficionados have become accustomed to. If the moveable weight is your friend, look no further than Qi10 LS.
  • Qi10
    Qi10 sits smack dab in the middle. It’s a model of consistency and balance, delivering a blend of distance and forgiveness that fits a wide range of players. CG placement is optimal, launch conditions are ideal, and the overall performance is everything you could ask for.
