With the release of the new Qi10 series from TaylorMade, golfers are looking to see how these new clubs differ from the company’s very successful Stealth series.

For this review, I’ll test-drive the Qi10 Rescue to determine if these hybrids are worth the hype and if you should consider adding them to your golf bag.

  • Loft: 19°-33°

  • Swing Weight: D3


  • Easily launches the golf ball off any lie
  • Great performance off the low face

The TaylorMade 3-hybrid Rescue I tested clocked in at 19 degrees of loft with a stock Fujikura Ventus TR Blue HB shaft with a stiff flex to match my swing speed.

So, how did the Rescue perform? Does it soar past last year’s Stealth 2?

How does the Qi10 Rescue look?

While I certainly miss the red and black of the Stealth series, the Qi10 Rescue offers the best-looking option from TaylorMade’s new series.

Since the Rescue is small and slender, the shiny black makes the club’s appearance pop in your golf bag or when used on the course.

What handicap is best for the Qi10 Rescue?

I believe the Qi10 Rescue plays well for mid and high handicappers looking to gain more consistency and boosted distance. The Rescue certainly plays well from the tee or the short grass of the fairway.

Even though I only got 50 swings off the artificial turf with this club, I could quickly tell the Qi10 Rescue offers plenty of benefits for golfers who need more forgiveness from their mid-range game.

How does the Qi10 Rescue perform?

TaylorMade Qi10 Rescue Face

When it comes to performance with this new Rescue, I loved how light and quick the club felt in my hands.

As I waggled in my pre-shot routine with the hybrid, the club maintained a solid feel, providing that “well-built” feeling we all expect from new golf clubs.

Although I prefer a bulkier hybrid shape because it mimics a fairway wood, the streamlined Qi10 Rescue offers something streamlined that’s agile and quick, helping to increase my average ball speed.

Contact is crisp and clean, producing that ball height that I want to get that steep landing angle that helps hold the green on long entry shots and stick the fairway off the tee box.

How does the Qi10 Rescue compare to the Stealth 2 Rescue?

When evaluating the new Rescue and last year’s Stealth 2 model, I found the Qi10 offered a handful of slight advantages. Ball speed stayed high with the Qi10, and shot dispersion was clustered tightly.

The Qi10 Rescue offers more forgiveness, a nice feature for mid-to-high handicappers who need a more dependable, consistent ball flight.

You’ll probably find little difference between these clubs if you carry a mid-range swing speed or even lower to the course.

In the end, they both offer premium performance, but the new bells and whistles give the Qi10 Rescue a small advantage.

My TaylorMade Qi10 Rescue Verdict

The Qi10 Rescue ($300 MSRP) delivers a relatively straightforward playing experience. If you’ve played with either the standard Stealth or Stealth 2 hybrids, you’ll find the new Qi10 Rescue produces similar results.

I found the Rescue offers slightly more forgiveness with the same fast, slick ball speed off the face. Miss-hit performance feels refined and more focused over previous models, especially low off the face.

Also, if you like to carry more than one hybrid, the several options here with the Qi10 offer a nice opportunity to minimize the long irons you carry with successful gapping between yardages.

Other Qi10 Rescue Models

Ideal for low handicappers and experienced golfers, the Tour Rescue model delivers the workability that other Qi10 hybrids lack.

Designed with a refined shape, when compared to the standard and Max version Rescue, the Tour hybrid offers exceptional forgiveness on off-center strikes.

Depending on your preferred shot shape, the 3-degree loft sleeve adds or subtracts trajectory, helping set the Tour Rescue apart from other Rescues.

The added loft will close the club face more, helping you create subtle draws with a steep landing angle. If you prefer less loft, you can expect a more open face that can enhance your fades.

TaylorMade Qi10 Max Rescue

Emphasizing easy strikes, the Max Rescue offers a broad, rounded club head that delivers pure strikes to the golf ball. Great for high handicappers, the Max offers the most forgiving option in the Qi10 Rescue series.

The larger club head offers balance throughout the shot with higher MOI, helping the club remain stable through the hitting zone rather than twisting and creating side spin.

If you love the shape of fairway woods but want something smaller and more manageable, the Max Rescue offers the best of both worlds, delivering high launch, extended carry, and the forgiveness of a short iron.

For the female golfer who needs a lightweight hybrid that offers versatility and power, the Women’s Max Rescue is definitely up to the task at hand.

Great on longer par 3s, the hybrid offers a larger club head that produces stability and outstanding forgiveness on off-center contact.

By maintaining ball speed, the Max Rescue for women golfers boosts distance and accuracy in equal parts.

The hybrid also offers impressive versatility when hitting off the fairway, as the V-Steel sole produces jaw-dropping turf interaction.

Slightly smaller than a fairway wood, the Max Rescue is a lighter and more agile club than a standard driver, allowing female golfers to extend their carry off the tee.
