The TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver was in my bag for 5 rounds of golf this spring.  It is one of the lowest spinning drivers for 2024 but the new Qi10 MOI also keeps it pretty forgiving.  I think the debate over Qi10 Max and LS is going to be pretty tight as seen among tour players.   They are close in both MOI and Spin.   Obviously the LS is lower spin, but still really high forgiveness.  This might be the perfect combo for high spin golfers not wanting to sacrifice forgiveness.    

This is the definitive TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver Review for 2024.



TaylorMade’s Quest for Inertia is all about make forgiveness perform.  Over the last numbers of years we’ve know about the benefits of MOI and forgiveness in a driver, but the trade off between forgiveness and performance usually meant to get lower spin, you’d need to sacrifice significant forgiveness.  The new Qi10 LS is a higher MOI driver with still low spin performance for those of us that need it.  While not quite “cracking the code” it is about as close as you can get in a compact, low spin driver with yet ample forgiveness.

60X Carbon Twist Face

The TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver has the 3rd version of the 60X Carbon Twist Face. It has proven successful for Taylormade as they have been able to reduce the face weight allowing for more moveable mass for other areas of the club.  It offers consistent ball speeds across the entire face as well as deflection for keeping those off center hits going straight.  The most obvious feature is the different feel of a carbon face compared to a titanium face.  It is much more muted/softer, but yet the ball explodes off of it with power.  The deep blue stock color is very “hidden” at address so you can barely notice it is there.


The TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver is a low launching/low spinning head.  However that isn’t to say you can’t hit high bombs.  It really is about control.  this driver helps keep everyting under control so that it does what you want rather than what the club dictates. If you’ve ever swung a club and said all it does is “x, y or z” you know exactly what I’m talking about.  This driver does what you want so if you set up for a high shot it hits it, a low stinger, it hits it, a cut, a draw, etc.  The central sliding weight can also help control the direction of shots too.  If you fight a little movement right or left, you can counter that by moving the weight.  The rear weight while not moveable is a big ky to MOI, power and launch too.

Low Spin

The TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver is one of the lowest spinning drivers in 2024.  This is what I’m looking for to maximize my distance.  I simply spin the ball too much off the driver.  I know it is swing related, but at this point in time in my golf career I doubt I’m going to change that.  I still have enough speed to get it out there 300 sometimes so I need low spin to maximize my swing.  However in 2024 the gap between LS and Max is not a dramatic as in previous models so you might be able to test different heads and still reduce spin.  But guaranteed the LS drops spin the most.


Looking down at the Taylormade Qi10 LS Driver is about as appealing as it gets.  The head shape is that nice compact, tall face design which I love.  Knowing that it will reduce my spin means confidence on each swing.  While it took some serious range time to get my driver swing back this spring, when I swing this club, it really bombs the ball.  I golf with a buddy that can really bring the heat with his driver, and yet I didn’t get out driven while hitting the TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver.  I was impressed by the total distance of this driver as well as the direction.  It went really straight.  I could still “work” the ball a little in either direction, but preferred to just hit it straight.  It often just held the line from initial launch until it hit the ground.  This driver is certainly in the running to be my 2024 gamer. 


TaylorMade brought forgiveness to every driver in 2024, the Qi10 LS might have the least, but the spin reduction more than makes up for that with my swing.  I’m impressed by every detail of this driver which helped my find my driver swing again and hit a whole bunch of fairway finding bombs.  If you want low spin, great control, excellent sound, feel and head shape, while still having some really good MOI, the TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver is for you.
