RSi 2 Irons
Face Slot Technology for Distance and Forgiveness
Even great golfers have mis-hits. It’s part of the game. TaylorMade studies show that 76% of shots hit by golfers are mis-hits. So TM engineers set out to design the ultimate iron to help golfers have better mis-hits. The desired results? You’re going to hit more greens, and shoot lower scores because your misses will be better. RSi Irons are the first irons ever to Feature FaceSlot Technology which provides uniform flexion across the face protecting ball speed and generating more consistent distance on off-center hits. Face Slot Technology is featured in the 3-8 iron with two slots located near the heel and toe of the clubface. At address, the irons look striking and give golfers ultimate confidence.
And while RSi 2 provides the ultimate performance on shots hit away from the center of the clubface, the irons are infused with all of the speed and distance Tour Pros and amateurs alike have come to demand from TaylorMade.
RSi2 irons are loaded with progressive multi-material technology and refined shaping to provide playability and precision for all golfers. The long irons have tungsten low in the toe for higher launch and more ballspeed. In the mid irons we’ve placed high-strength, thin-face steel construction for high speed and consistency. The shorts irons Forged carbon steel face with milled grooves for soft feel and control that the better player demands. A fully forged 1025 carbon steel wedge for optimum feel and precision round out the most complete set of irons we’ve ever created.
RSi2 features an improved Speed Pocket with ThruSlot Technology in the 3-7 irons which increase launch angle and ball speed on all shots. The Speed Pocket gives golfers ball speed protection on shots below the center of the face, furthering better performance on mis-hits.
Combine all of that with our thinnest face, deep undercut and Inverted Cone Technology and RSi 2 gives golfers maximum face speed for maximum consistent distance. TaylorMader engineers have also improved sound and feel via advanced construction and multiple dampening systems. The exclusive KBS Tour 105 Shaft provides tour-caliber performance at a lighter weight for optimum blend of speed, stability and accuracy.

TaylorMade RSi 2 Irons Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The RSi 2 version of the RSi lineup is definitely a sibling of the RSi TP with some nice modifications. It adds progressive multi-material technology that have a tungsten weight low in the toe of the long irons producing higher launch and greater ball speeds. The mid irons are constructed of high-strength, thin-faced steel for consistency at high speeds. The short irons are forged carbon steel with milled grooves for that soft feel, and the wedge is a fully forged 1025 carbon steel. Add in their Speed Pocket Technology and Face Slot design and you have an iron that will provide better mishit distance and control, and you have quite the combo.
Who's It For?
These irons are a great choice for scratch golfers, to mid-handicappers and improving golfers who want to increase their shot making abilities, receive increased feel from shot to shot, and want to control distances better than they would be able to with the even more forgiving game improvement heads.
I have played other CB players heads from Taylormade, so it was interesting to test their latest greatest. Just like the RSi TPs, I was impressed to say the least. These were a tad harsher than the RSi TPs, but not by much. The ball flight was very similar, as was distance, which was about half club longer than other irons I tested. Looks-wise, I was more comfortable with these in my hands because I know that I can mishit these some and still see results. I struck these very well and loved the slightly higher ball flight and feel. I even went back to these when I struggled some with a different OEM, just to see if it was my swing or the head, and by george it was not my swing! Again, the RSi 2s are impressive to say the least.
