Ping G430 Vs Taylormade Qi10 Driver Comparison
The new Taylormade drivers are out so I tested the Taylormade Qi10 against the Ping G430 Max to see how it measures up.
Ping G430 Driver Overview
“The Ping G430 features a forged titanium face, moveable 25g rear weight and variable roll radius face.”
The crown features the “turbulators” which help cut through the air and give the G430 driver a decidedly “Batman” look.
I liked the low spin rates I was getting from this 460cc driver. They stayed between 2300 and 2400 RPMs throughout my testing which helped increase distance. The G430 driver sells for around $550.
Taylormade Qi10 Driver Overview
“The Taylormade Qi10 has an AI-designed face, infinity carbon crown and carbon fiber Twist Face.”
The blue carbon face helps to frame the ball easily and the carbon fiber that covers 97% of the crown affords this driver a modern look.
The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket works to save your low-face drives by helping them to maintain high ball speed.
The G430 played a bit longer; but the Taylormade Qi10 helped me to produce favorable lies. The Taylormade Qi10 retails for $600.
“The Ping G430 is a bit more affordable but I think high handicappers will get more from the inherent accuracy of the Taylormade Qi10.”
