TaylorMade RSi 1 Iron Review

In the game of golf nobody is perfect and miss-hits happen. The goal of the Taylormade RSi 1 irons is to help improve the result of your shot no matter where you hit it on the face. What does that mean? Hit more greens and lower your scores. It’s as easy as that, and being the first iron to have FaceSlot technology will help provide a consistent distance for every iron in your bag. If you are a player that struggles with Iron shots, then the RSi 1 iron set is the right set for you!


Technology (100/100)

TaylorMade RSi 1 Iron Set

FaceSlot Technology in the RSi 1 Irons

The main feature of the TaylorMade RSi iron set is the FaceSlot Technology in the 3-8 irons. It provides the flex on the face across the entire hitting area of the club that generates more distance on off center hits which leads to improved accuracy. The improved Speed Pocket with TrueSlot Technology in the 3-7 iron induces a higher ball speed and increases launch angle to promote increased distance. These irons also feature the Inverted Cone Technology that has been used in recent releases of TaylorMade irons. The thin, deep face helps increase the trampoline effect which in turn produces maximum speed and consistency. There isn’t any doubt why Taylormade is so excited about this iron set as they packed them full of great features. The set make up is 3-PW, GW, SW, LW.

Look (90/100)

When I think of traditional game improvement irons, the first thing that comes to my mind is clunky irons with huge soles and thick top lines. This is where the RSi 1 irons differ from the rest. The top line looks very appealing and has a sleek look for an oversized iron. I like the fact that these irons don’t have a huge sole at the bottom either that usually protrudes towards the back of the iron and can be a bit of an eyesore. I myself prefer the look of a classic midsize blade iron that has limited distractions when I look down at address. The RSi 1 irons have that look coupled with the performance of an oversized game improvement iron.

Performance (90/100)

With all of the technology packed into these irons the one attribute that stands out when it comes to performance is distance. You can tell the ball speeds are extreme as the ball springs off the face with a lot of velocity. The ball even traveled well when I hit them fat and off the toe which speaks to the message of better ball speeds on miss-hits. They have a nice “click” sound to them which is appealing to most players. Directionally they went fairly straight on most of my swings. I did tend to miss left on some, but that was mostly to do with shaft selection as there was not a stiff enough shaft for me to hit. Performance wise these irons grade out well and are a premium choice for those who need a combination of distance and forgiveness in their irons.

Final Thoughts (93/100)

TaylorMade spent a lot of time and effort into developing the RSi 1 and the results are fantastic. The technology, look, and performance are all a plus with distance being the defining attribute. I would recommend these a wide range of players, but they would really benefit the players that want to hit the ball straighter and further. I would also recommend that everyone looking to get a set of these go through a fitting as I found out that having the wrong shaft could lead to poor results. Overall, the RSI 1 Irons from TaylorMade are a winner!
