Introducing the new RSi iron family featuring Face Slot Technology, the next great innovation from the company that has pioneered the performance of the modern distance iron.
“Face Slot Technology provides greater consistency across the face, giving players improved performance on mis-hits,” said Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s Director of Product Creation for Irons, Putters & Wedges. “No golfer is perfect, not even the best players in the world hit the centre of the club every time. So with RSi, we’re giving all golfers a technology that can help their mis-hits perform more like pure strikes.”
Two years ago, TaylorMade introduced “Speed Pockets” (a small slot in the sole of the iron to improve shots struck low on the face of the iron). The company has taken everything it’s learned from the development of the Speed Pocket technology (originally introduced in its revolutionary RocketBallz fairway wood) and applied it to the iron face to activate the toe and heel areas to provide more uniform flexion across the face and protect ball speed on off-centre hits.
Face Slot Technology
Only available with RSi, Face Slots are found in the 3-8 irons. Positioned at the toe and heel, just outside the score lines and vertically spanning 35 to 38mm (depending on the iron number), the slots are cut all the way through the face and filled with a durable epoxy compound. The heel and toe slots allow the face to flex easily and protect ball speed for more consistent distance across the face.
Improved Speed Pocket
In addition to Face Slots, the improved Speed Pocket in the RSi iron features ThruSlot technology – engineered to activate the lower portion of the face by minimising speed reduction and creating higher launch on shots hit below centre. Like Face Slots, the Speed Pocket (found in the 3-7 irons) protects ball speed, launch angle and spin rate, especially on shots struck low on the face.
The two combine to give RSi a larger sweetspot with forgiveness near the toe, heel and bottom of the club.
