The TaylorMade RSi 1 irons are focused on forgiveness, that’s their main attribute as far as I can determine after using them for a few rounds. These babies are replacing some of the fastest irons I ever played with, and I am referring to the TaylorMade SpeedBlade irons. So, the RSi 1 irons come with a lively, dynamic feel but somehow TaylorMade managed to calm them down and the end result is that these irons feel more controllable. In terms of design, the TaylorMade RSi 1 irons look pretty cool, with their shiny chrome finish and what I like most is the dark badge inside the cavity, a design feature which makes them different from their RSi 2siblings.
Overall, these babies feature the classic TaylorMade design, with relatively thick top lines, ample soles and a medium hosel offset which I find awesome. These babies look very powerful and slick and, in the same time, timeless and classy. Falling into the category of game improving irons, the TaylorMade RSi 1 irons are best suited for mid handicap golf players, according to my personal experience. Retailing for $799 the steel version and $899 for the graphite, these irons are built using more flexible faces, strong and light materials and specially designed undercut cavities; all these features make these irons feel like a wood, more than ever actually, and that’s a great achievement for TaylorMade. The Speed Pocket and the Thru Slots technologies featured by the TaylorMade RSi 1 along with the slogan “Nobody’s Perfect” are revealing what these babies are built for, i.e. to improve miss-hits (the shots hit low on the face of the club). In terms of performance, these irons are long and forgiving, and they’re going to help myriads of golfers everywhere to make the most of their game. Using the TaylorMade RSi 1 you’ll be able to hit the ball with more accuracy than ever but without sacrificing distance in the process.
