Best TaylorMade Drivers 2024

TaylorMade Qi10 Max Driver

5 star review

Reviewed by Hannah Holden

The Max driver has the largest profile in the Qi10 range, but it still looks great behind the golf ball and is likely more confidence-inspiring for the majority of golfers. I love the new infinity carbon fibre crown and how seamless the top of the club looks behind the golf ball.

I was really impressed with the high ball flight I got with this and the consistency of the flight. My ‘worst shot’ dispersion-wise finished only thirteen yards from my target, and from left to right, my dispersion was only 25 yards wide, which is absolutely insane. I’m not sure I have ever hit a driver so straight with a variety of strikes.

This driver is going to make an impact in the golf market this year. It offers serious levels of forgiveness that could improve the game of all golfers, from high handicappers to tour pros and it is going to be a serious contender for going in my bag this year.

  • Extreme Forgiveness
  • High Launch

  • None

TaylorMade Qi10 Driver

4 star review
TaylorMade Qi10: Everything you need to know!

Reviewed by Paul Miller

This is a great-looking club! Personally, I love the new look, and a move away from the red ‘Stealth’ design is fresh and different. The overall design has been well thought out, with a head shape that is pleasing to the eye. This results in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring club at address.

TaylorMade has achieved this by extending the boundaries of its carbon head technology. The latest driver features an Infinity Crown, characterised by a continuous carbon construction from the rear of the head to the face. This innovative design not only conserves mass and reduces weight but also enables redistribution to more strategically advantageous positions for optimising launch and spin. Additionally, the driver retains the twist face technology and incorporates a sliding weight on the sole, providing additional options for fine-tuning and customisation.

Overall, I was really impressed with this driver’s performance. When you are over the ball, you just want to hit it, and so it gives you confidence before you even hit the ball. As someone who mainly hits a fade, this club definitely would give me confidence on the tee to do just that.

PROS

  • Consistency
  • Great looking club
  • Slightly lower ball flight – so it gives more control and is good into the wind.

CONS

  • For me, no improvement in distance


RRP: £499

Right-handed lofts: 9°, 10.5°, 12°

Left-handed lofts: 9° & 10.5°

Shafts: Fujikura Ventus TR Blue 5 (S, R, A) and Mitsubishi Diamana T+ 60 (R, S, X) shafts.

TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver

5 star review
taylormade qi10 ls driver

Reviewed by Jack Backhouse

This driver is probably the best-looking driver head TaylorMade have ever released. The compact head shape with the new gloss finish Infinity Crown and blue carbon face, it is the most classic driver on the market right now.

The head shape is beautiful, I love that we have moved away from the red face and I love how the face seems to just seamlessly merges into the crown and the rest of the head. Before even hitting the club I’d be quite happy to have this is my bag just for sex appeal.

Out on the course, I love how the ball feels from the face. You can barely feel when you have hit the toe or the heel of the club, which is amazing.

I have no doubt that any golfers who currently use a TaylorMade driver will immediately move into the new Qi10 driver models, as it is a straight-up performance improvement. I can also see a lot of brand loyalists switching to this, too, especially if they prefer a classic-shaped head. This might be the best driver of 2024.

PROS

  • Looks great behind the ball
  • Good performance on miss-hits
  • Extremely adjustable

CONS

  • There are no cons

TaylorMade Stealth 2 driver

4.5 star review

Reviewed by Tom Irwin

The data was mind-blowing, like crackers. If someone asked, I would have my club head about 108, and I think that is probably stretching it a bit.

The Stealth 2 was having me swing at 109.2 average, which was a real buzz. I think loads of this is down to confidence as one good shot after another just makes you want to hit it harder.

Getting up to ball speeds of almost 170 and spinning at just over 2000 rpm is serious performance. I have never been able to really get driver airborne and with a peak height average of mid 80s and a couple over 100 feet. I genuinely felt like a new golfer hitting long, high bombs.

The distance feels natural and that is shown in the dispersion. There are no tricks here, just a very well-balanced golf club that is helping you deliver it correctly time and time again. That down-range dispersion is obviously really important, and I think in Stealth 2, TaylorMade have a product that is genuinely longer and straighter than what has gone before.

Pros:

  • So long
  • Very forgiving
  • Love the looks

Cons:

  • Not loads of stock shaft options


RRP: £499

Lofts: 9°, 10.5° & 12°

Shafts: Fujikura Ventus Red TR 5 (S, R, A) Mitsubishi Diamana S+ 60 (X, S)

Grip: Golf Pride Z-Grip Plus2 Black/Red 0.600 52g

TaylorMade Stealth 2 HD driver

5 star review
Stealth 2 HD driver

Reviewed by Jack Backhouse

TaylorMade are right on the money with the new Stealth 2 HD driver. It has all of the looks of a players club that golfers want, with all the technology to straighten out the ball flight, which is what all golfers need. I love that the draw bias is subtle and not so in your face as it can be with other brands.

I wouldn’t normally go anywhere near a draw-biased driver, with my bad shot normally being a low hook, so I wasn’t sure how I would get on with the Stealth 2 HD. I was quickly blown away by how easy to hit the driver was and how well the miss-hit shots performed.

This isn’t the longest of the Stealth 2 drivers, and that did show for me with the carry distances I achieved, not breaking any personal records, but this isn’t the point.

The point of the Stealth 2 is to give players who struggle with tee shots a driver that is easy to launch, performs well on off-centre hits and gets the ball in play more often, and that is exactly what the Stealth 2 HD delivers.

Pros:

  • Hugely forgiving
  • Great launch characteristics
  • Draw features really work

Cons:

  • Limited stock shaft options


RRP: £499

Lofts: 9°, 10.5°, 12°

Featured shaft: Fujikura Speeder NX Red: S (60g) R & A (50g)

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver

4.5 star review
TaylorMade Stealh 2 Plus driver review

Reviewed by Hannah Holden

This is a seriously good-looking golf club. Straight away I loved the addition of the red ring at the back of the club head and love the colour pop it adds to the whole design.

TaylorMade have absolutely nailed how this club looks over the ball. They’ve transitioned from a matte crown to a gloss finish and although a nightmare to photograph, it looks stunning.

This is meant to be the least forgiving model in the Stealth 2 driver line-up. But I found I could swing this as hard as I want and still really control the dispersion.

Lots of people don’t know what to expect from a carbon faced and wonder if the sound and feel will suffer but I actually really like how fast and powerful this feels off the club face.

Pros:

  • Seriously good-looking golf club
  • Great dispersion
  • Neutral/Fade Bias

Cons:

  • Could spin less



Best TaylorMade Drivers 2024

TaylorMade is one of the best brands when it comes to making golf drivers and with a range of different driver heads, there will be a club for every golfer.

Remember the best results are achieved when having a driver fitting to not only find the best suited driver head for your game but most importantly which shaft will suit you best. The correct driver set up could be key to you hitting more fairways this year and lowering your scores.

How do we test drivers?

At National Club Golfer we are passionate about producing accurate and thorough reviews and make sure our testing process is rigorous so we get a good understanding of how each club performs.

Each driver is hit with TP5 golf balls to allow us to collect launch monitor data with our in-house TrackMan and Flightscope. After this it is time to head out onto the golf course and test the clubs in practice and competition play. We do this across a variety of golf clubs in our base of Yorkshire.

What is important when buying a new driver?

When buying a new driver it is important to know what you want from that club to help you improve.

Most people are looking for more distance, each driver model is optimised for different things. Depending on your swing and your impact conditions, you may not actually hit the model that is advertised as the longest, the furthest. So if you want more distance it is always worth giving different models a hit before you make a decision.

For most golfers, especially high handicappers, something that is more forgiving is going to yield the best performance. Most forgiving golf drivers have a slightly bigger club head with perimeter weighting for high MOI. They also have a center of gravity that is further back to help players get more height on their shots.

Do you want something that is draw bias? There are so many models out there to help with slice correction, it would be silly not to take a look if you see your ball disappearing into the right trees too often. A closed face and draw bias weighting can get you hitting straighter shots in no time at all.

Don’t forget about the shaft either. Getting the correct shaft can help dial in your spin, launch angle and can also give you some extra distance. Having a club fitting or trying different options with your local pro can really improve the performance of your new driver.

The Best TaylorMade Drivers 2024: FAQ’s

What is the latest TaylorMade driver?

The Qi10 Max is the headliner in terms of technology this year. The Max stands for max MOI, max straight and max size.

The Qi10 line from TaylorMade includes all their latest driver models. There are three options available, the Qi10 Max is the most forgiving model, and is also the longest. The Qi10 is designed to find the optimal balance between speed and forgiveness. Finally, the Qi10 LS is TaylorMade’s low-spin offering aimed at mid to low handicappers.

What’s different in the latest TaylorMade drivers?

The new Qi name stands for the Quest for Inertia, or to put it in a more understandable way, the quest to produce the best balance of speed and forgiveness. The 10, stands for the 10,000 MOI which is the big tech story behind the Qi10 range.

The Qi10 Max driver features TaylorMade’s largest-ever carbon crown. There is 18% more carbon on the crown than last year’s Stealth 2. This saves five grams of weight to be used elsewhere. This and advanced construction techniques allow for mass redistribution around the club head for a deep and low centre of gravity.
