QI10 MAX: WHAT 10K MOI MEANS TO THE GOLFER

In its simplest form, higher MOI = more forgiveness. Higher MOI reduces head rotation on off-center impacts, protecting ball speed on mis-hits and delivering more consistent launch conditions. This level of forgiveness isn't just a feeling; it's something you can measure. 

The Qi10 Max driver boasts a combined total MOI of 10,000 g-cm² (10K). This feat results from advanced lightweight materials, a reinvented head shape and strategic mass placement.  

The forgiveness of Qi10 Max can benefit golfers of all skill levels, from the everyday golfer to major champions like Team TaylorMade's Nelly Korda and Collin Morikawa, who've both put the driver in play in competition. 

How do we achieve 10,000 MOI? It's the result of an integration of three key technologies:

ADVANCED CONSTRUCTION WITH INFINITY CROWN

TaylorMade's advanced construction techniques strategically redistribute mass, creating a deep and low Center of Gravity (CG) for optimal launch and spin control while maintaining a high MOI.

TM24 CWD TC301 Qi10 MAX 3 Q OSN 4283 v1
OPTIMIZED HEAD SHAPE

The Qi10 Max boasts a maximized front-to-back dimension, concentrating mass at the extreme limit away from the CG. This unique head shape enhances stability and minimizes deviation on off-center hits.

TM24 MWD Qi10 MAX ADR OSN 4398 v1
CARBON FACE TECHNOLOGY

Utilizing the third generation of 60X Carbon Twist Face, the Qi10 Max delivers a fast face on center strikes while preserving ball speed on mis-hits. The redesigned ledge optimizes energy transfer at impact.

Another differentiating component for Qi10 Max is the torque-control shaft, which features lower torque and reduces the tendency for the ball to veer off course. It's a strategy that's ingeniously counterintuitive. High torque shafts are generally associated with draw-biased, user-friendly game-improvement drivers because they provide more torsional rotation, which lets the face close faster to counter-punch the right miss.

However, with Qi10 Max's 10K design and innate head stability, the lower torque shaft proved to tighten dispersion and help more shots start and stay on their intended line.

QI10 LS: ADJUSTABILITY & PERFORMANCE FOR THE BETTER PLAYER

Compared to the Qi10 Max, the Qi10 LS is engineered for high-swing-speed players seeking a spin-scrubbing solution off the tee. With a deep face and more compact head shape, the Qi10 LS is the preferred driver for Team TaylorMade Tour athletes, including Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.

Utilized throughout the Qi10 family, the Infinity Crown marks a significant leap forward in TaylorMade's carbon crown construction. By extending carbon fiber to the extreme perimeter of the head and aligning it flush with the top of the face, this new design maximizes mass savings. This innovative approach removes excess weight previously located in less advantageous positions, resulting in optimal mass redistribution for lower CG and better spin properties critical to players who choose the Qi10 LS driver.  

TM24 MWD Qi10 LS Hero LYD OSN 4269 v1

Qi10 LS also incorporates a new, more efficient 18g steel sliding weight housed by an innovative track system. Strategic shaping along the sole is designed to deliver better aerodynamics with reduced turbulence. The redesigned structure allows the adjustable weight to move farther forward and lower relative to its predecessor, resulting in a lower balance point and optimized inertia for a more forgiving low-spin experience.

WHAT IS MOI & WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR YOUR GOLF GAME?

WHAT IS MOI & WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR YOUR GOLF GAME?

You hear moment of inertia (MOI) a lot in golf, but what exactly does it mean and how does it impact you?

What is MOI?

In golf, the simplest explanation is MOI = Forgiveness. The higher the number, the more forgiving the club and, in theory, the easier it is to hit. But let’s dive a little deeper to understand the science behind this essential measure of golf club design.

DEFINING “MOMENT OF INERTIA”?

For the physicists in the crowd, the moment of inertia is the measure of an objects resistance to change while in motion. There’s a crazy formula that goes along with it that accounts for axis, mass distribution and rotation. Since you’re here because you’re a golfer, and not a physicist, we’ll simplify it into a terms that make more sense in your world.

It boils down to a clubhead's resistance to twisting when it impacts the golf ball on off-center strikes. A clubhead with a high MOI will resist twisting more than a clubhead with a low MOI. The less the clubhead twists at impact, the more energy it can transfer to the golf ball, the better the strike and the better the result.

While the concept sounds simple enough, achieving it is a whole other ball game.

MOI & GOLF CLUB DESIGN

Because off-center strikes are a common for golfers at every level, we turn to MOI to mitigate their impact. And TaylorMade’s golf club engineers are MOI wizards. They can tweak the weight distribution, head size and more to optimize MOI for each type of club and achieve the desired outcome of launch, spin and distance on mis-hits.

High MOI means the weight is strategically packed into the clubhead, away from the hosel. This clever weight distribution helps the clubface stay put at impact, even when you don’t deliver the perfect strike and hit the ball out of the sweet spot. As a result, the clubhead is less likely to twist or turn on off-center hits, making it easier to maintain control over the shot.

TM24 MWD Qi10 Driver MAX Lightspeed 3 Q OSN v1

Another way of explaining it: The clubhead is moving really fast while you’re swing it and the ball is stationary. If the impact location is towards the toe when the collision between ball and club occurs, naturally the clubface will want to twist open. If the impact occurs on the heel, the clubface will want to twist closed. In low MOI club designs, this can lead to all kinds of bad results. With high MOI heads, the phenomena is minimized and the golfer is able to achieve more consistent performance on mis-hits.

THE SWEET SPOT AND BALL SPEED

The sweet spot is the ideal spot on the clubface for maximum ball speed and distance. MOI can affect the size and location of the sweet spot. A clubhead with a higher MOI will have a larger sweet spot, which means we're more likely to hit the ball with maximum ball speed and achieve greater distance. On the other hand, a clubhead with a lower MOI will have a smaller sweet spot, which means we're more likely to lose ball speed and distance on off-center hits.

BALL FLIGHT & DISPERSION

MOI also affects ball flight and dispersion. A clubhead with a higher MOI will produce a more consistent ball flight and tighter dispersion. This is because the clubhead is less likely to twist or turn on off-center hits, resulting in a more stable and predictable shot. On the other hand, a clubhead with a lower MOI can produce a more erratic ball flight and wider dispersion, making it harder to control where the ball goes.

MOI ACROSS THE BOARD

Golf clubs are not typically labeled with an MOI number in the same way they are labeled with loft angles or shaft flex. However, with each club type (driver, fairway, irons, putter), there are a number of variables that can influence MOI.

MOI IN DRIVERS

When it comes to drivers, MOI is a critical factor as we’ve already discussed. High MOI drivers can lead to less twisting on off-center hits, which is vital for maintaining ball speed and direction on tee shots. Our team of engineers often push the limits of MOI within USGA regulations, utilizing advanced materials and clubhead designs, including perimeter weighting and strategic placement of the center of gravity to maximize MOI, making them forgiving for high and low handicappers alike.

MOI IN PUTTERS

The putter is perhaps the most precision-oriented club in a golfer's bag, and MOI plays a significant role. A putter with a higher MOI will resist twisting on off-center hits, which can make a huge difference in direction on the greens and consistent pace.

MOI IN IRON SETS

Iron sets benefit from MOI in terms of improved control over and consistent ball flight. A higher MOI iron helps reduce the penalty from mis-hits, and club manufacturers employ various golf equipment technologies such as cavity backing and perimeter weighting to increase the MOI. Irons with a higher MOI can be particularly useful for mid to high handicappers who require additional forgiveness from their golf club. Conversely, irons with a lower MOI may offer better shot-shaping capabilities favored by players with higher swing speeds and great ball striking precision.

MOI IN WEDGES

Wedges typically have a lower MOI compared to other clubs, as they are designed for shot-making ability around the greens rather than outright forgiveness. However, the concept of MOI still applies. For instance, some wedges will use design elements such as larger clubfaces or specific types of groove patterns to help minimize the loss of spin on off-center hits, which can help when making full swings from the fairway or rough.

MOI IN FAIRWAY WOODS

A fairway wood with a higher MOI provides a stable clubface at impact, especially on off-center hits, which is a common occurrence for golfers of all skill levels when dealing with the challenges of properly striking a fairway wood. The added forgiveness from a high MOI club helps maintain ball speed and reduces dispersion, which can be the difference between finding the green on a long par 5 or finding the fairway on a narrow par 4.

GOT IT?

MOI is a term that gets thrown around a lot in golf, and while it may be common vernacular for the high-IQ engineering geniuses in our R&D department, it’s a concept you might not be all that familiar with. Until now. It’s our hope that this article gets you one step closer to understanding MOI and the extremely beneficial applications it offers to your golf game. If you’re ever looking for the short and dirty, MOI = Forgiveness. The bigger the number, the more forgiving the club.
