What’s the Difference? TaylorMade RSi 1, RSi 2, RSi Tour Preferred Irons

Reading Time: 3 minutes


TaylorMade is welcoming three new iron sets to its already impressive lineup. The RSi 1, RSi 2, and RSi TP. Each iron offers slight, subtle differences geared toward a different kind of player. While they may look different, they’re all packed with some great new and innovative technology.

TaylorMade has taken their innovative Speed Pocket technology and put it into the face of their new irons with the Face Slot. The new Face Slot technology makes the RSi the longest iron (distance-wise), even when you miss the sweet spot. The Face Slots are located near the toe and heel of the clubface, just outside the groove pattern.  They provide uniform flexion across the entire face. This uniform reaction protects the ball speed on off-center hits to generate more consistent distance. Aside from the Face Slot, you’ll notice they still have Speed Pockets with ThruSlot technology that help on shots struck low on the clubface by increasing the launch and ball speed.

Here are the differences you need to know:


TaylorMade RSi 1 Iron Set – Face Slot Technology

  • Improved Speed Pocket with ThruSlot Technology in the 3-7 irons
  • Face Slot Technology in the 3-8 irons
  • Advanced Face Design with a thin face and deep undercut with Inverted Cone Technology
