Review: TaylorMade PSi Irons
“Take a new approach to the better player iron.” This is what we are hearing coming out of TaylorMade as it prepares to unleash its new PSi Irons loose on the golfing world. Here we take a look to see if these irons are really worth the hype.
According to TaylorMade, golfers have been suffering due to having to choose an iron with either premium sound and feel or distance. However, with the PSi Irons, a perfect balance of form and function has been found thanks to the brand’s new Dynamic Feel System (DFS).
Comprised of a compression damper and multi-material cavity badge, this clever system works to reduce vibration across the face without sacrificing golf ball speeds. When combined with redesigned head geometrics, tungsten weighting in the long irons (3-5) and forged short irons (8-SW), the result is a brilliant dynamic approach to feel which also promises superior sound and feel throughout the entire set.
The PSi has a new Speed Pocket design – now a cut-thru slot that feeds directly into the cavity undercut. This works to help yield more effective slot performance resulting in quicker ball speeds for shots which are taken lower on the face.
Similar to this year’s RSi Irons, the PSi utilises Face Slot located at the heel and toe of the clubface to protect ball speed while also generating greater consistency and distance on those off-centre strikes.
“In creating the PSi, we wanted to make sure we understood the true needs of the better player before deciding how best to approach its design,” said Tomo Bystedt, Director of Iron Product Creation.
“The total performance package had to meet or exceed the player’s expectation on look and feel while giving them performance they had never seen before. The consistency, workability and distance are something we think will be a revelation to all better players.”
The TaylorMade Golf PSi Irons are coming soon to American Golf so keep checking back for updates on its release.
