The TaylorMade Qi10 driver has been revealed as a new release for 2024 as the successor to the Stealth 2. How does it perform and what do we know about it?
TaylorMade have made the move away from the Stealth name after two generations and introduced a newcomer in the shape of the Qi10 driver.
It was added onto the USGA conforming list in November 2023, featured in the bag of Rory McIlroy at the DP World Tour Championship and looks set to be released in early 2024.
TaylorMade Qi10 Driver Specs & Features
The Qi10 driver appeared on the USGA conforming list as only one model – the LS. We are taking an educated guess that this is a low-spin model.
It is expected their will be a standard and draw version as seen in the Stealth drivers, which has Stealth, Stealth Plus and Stealth HD in both generations.
The Qi10 has the TaylorMade carbon fiber face that first appeared in the Stealth series as the manufacturer continues with this technology over a titanium face.
From the images, the Qi10 will have a sliding weight at the rear of the carbon crown although this looks to have been made smaller in size than the Stealth 2.
Positioned behind the Speed Pocket, the adjustable weight can be set to Fade, Draw or Neutral settings.
According to the conforming list, the driver will also have a weight port in the back of the sole which will have been designed to allow TaylorMade’s designers to reposition the CG (center of gravity).
The Stealth got it’s name from the black colour scheme but the Qi10 will feature a more traditional look with black, white and gold in this design.
The Qi10 driver has only been listed as an LS model on the conforming list with lofts of 8 degrees, 9 degrees and 10.5 degrees.
TaylorMade Qi10 Driver Review: Is the new release any good?
TaylorMade have come up with trumps with their recent releases with both the Stealth and Stealth 2 families proving big hits.
The carbon wood face is retained in the Qi10 and this model is more likely to be a continuation of everything good we have seen in the Stealths.
The proof will be in the testing and we can wait to get our hands on the Qi10 when the wraps come off.
