Gary Barber says:

In what way do TM not stick to what they say?
RBZII Irons- they introduced a speed slot, Speedblade Irons- they
understood they were on to something and improved the speed slot, produced
a more forgiving club. RSI – They have extended on the speed slot
technology and put slots in the face to help off centre shots go longer.
So, they’ve integrated a speed slot into their irons and then developed
it?.. they seem to be backing their claims.

Jay Smooth says:

The problem many have with TM is that they don’t stick with anything they
claim. One moment it is this and the next moment it is that. If there was
true data and stats to back it up then I would certainly assume they will
include this tech in all their irons for years and years to come right?
Ha!!!! They will paint a tiny yellow dot on the next batch and tell you its
a speed enhancer. The color yellow reacts with the sun in a way that allows
the club to dissipate air at a higher level. Not bagging on TM but come on.
If all this shit you are doing is relevant then why does it change
constantly? If there was any merit to most of what they say then it would
be a continuation, then rebranding. 

Gabriel Serna says:

I don’t like the naming from TayloMade on these, RSI ? I don’t want a iron
that shares a acronym with Repetitive Stress Injury. makes my wrists ache
just thinking about it 🙂

It is interesting though how the club makers are trying to have more
consistent distance and speed on off center hits since the COR has a limit
they cannot make the center any “hotter” but I’d be concerned about bad
shots off the toe and heel that might have gone short and /or offline with
other clubs go even farther from the intended target since you’ll lose less
speed.Kinda reminds me of how some putter faces and inserts help keep the
ballspeed consistent across the face so mishits still go the intended

I can see how, like others said, it could give golfers a bit too much help
since “bad shots” wont lose as much distance so a golfer might think it was
a ok shot make the wrong adjustments instead of working on better contact
and face control to get better results but I also understand that some
people have more money than time so they want a club that does more of the
work for them. Personally I’d rather have a mishit shot not carry as far so
I could attempt a recovery instead of having a “bad shot” that kept going
farther offline because the face is so hot, but I’m not a distance iron
kinda guy I guess.

mike hunt says:

Taylor made are just trash
What is this crap they are making it looks stupid 

Matthew Collins says:

Im sick of Taylor Made. I refuse to use any of their products on principle.

Vici Martynov says:

Oh dear don’t like those speed slots at all – very ugly – think the very
pretty Srixon hot irons Nike and Mizunos will eat them for breakfast in the
market place – mind you I’m not a fan of hot clubs anyway so they aren’t
targeted on my buying needs – hey do they give you Repetitive strain injury
– bad choice of name he he

hoteltango1 says:

Rsi – Really silly invention? Royally stupid innovation?

Or maybe Repetitive strain injury like iIm going to get from banging my
head against a wall when I think about these clubs.

I’ll get slots cut into my forehead to help with those off-centre headbutts
of course…

michael muldoon says:

longer clubs and stronger lofts. manufactures suck. we all need to use our
wrists correctly like Pros so we need regular lofts regardless of bogus

fullwerkes says:

Nice honest review.

+Mark Crossfield Lets say the technology does everything they says it does
[no reason to disbelieve it with their robot testing]. Is it not just
masking swing/strike problems? For the individual would this sort of tech
stop them getting a lessen to become a better player? Scenario: high
handicap player, lets say in their 40s, hits the ball out toe more often
than not. Due to these clubs being forgiving they think that cause its
going a decent distance they are fine…Good thing or bad thing?

Colin Gilmour says:

Mark . I am currently playing jpx ez same as yourself , is there much
difference between these and the new rsi 1 ? 

kimmosaatana says:

Really bothers me how fast Taylormade keeps pumping out clubs, the speed of
it all makes me think quality control goes out the window. Pure design
changes …with little substance.

William Brown says:

Why should you buy off the shelf? What’s wrong with buying lightly used
golf clubs?

Poonstar says:

I have gone back to a twenty year old set of Ping irons , sick of
Taylormade and Callaway for that matter .

Gino Lopriore says:

Where is the Nike Vapor irons review?
(Mr. taylormade fanboy, haa)

Anthony C says:

Taylor Made is making a mockery of viable technology for amateur golfers. A
26 degree 6 iron, really ? 

Strat TelePaul says:

The manufacturers bring clubs out so often because they are looking for the
one that actually sells well.

James Whelan says:

I’ll stick with my g30’s & see what they release next week 🙂 

Hermosa Vida says:

Rubbish technology, rubbish marketing. There’s 2-5 handicappers still using
10 year old forged clubs. It’s how you swing it. Gimmicks are for

TheGolfdaily says:

I guess you can call this the “slotty” club.
