Ping G430 10k Max Vs Taylormade Qi10 Driver
Manufacturers have achieved 10k+ MOI so it’s time to see which driver utilizes this advancement in the best way.
Ping G430 10k Max Driver Overview
“The G430 10K features a carbon fiber crown, fixed rear weight and adjustable hosel.”
The footprint of this driver looks massive; but it’s still 460cc. The crown is matte black with the “turbulators” that help cut through the air.
The Ping G430 10k Max was exceptionally forgiving but the spin rates were a bit high for me – regularly exceeding 2700 RPMs. It currently retails for $550.
Taylormade Qi10 Driver Overview
“The Qi10 features a carbon fiber twist face, infinity carbon crown and Speed Pocket.”
The Qi10 has a clean look at address and a cool blue carbon face. The head is mostly black with minimal blue bordering.
The Qi10 is forgiving all over the face and keeps up with the Ping G430 10k Max in that arena.
But I got an average of 6.9 extra yards compared to the G430 10K because of the lower spin rates. The Qi10 driver is $600.
“The Taylormade Qi10 also yielded tighter dispersion – a testament to the 10K+ MOI. So in my opinion, it is the better 2024 driver.”
