TaylorMade Golf has announced the PSi and PSi Tour irons designed with a proprietary ‘Dynamic Feel System’ (DFS), comprised of a Hybrar blend compression damper and a multi-material cavity badge. This works to reduce vibration across the face without sacrificing ball speed. Combined with redesigned head geometries, tungsten weighting in the long irons (three to five), and forged short irons (eight to SW), the result the company says is superior sound and feel throughout the set.
New to the PSi iron is a speed pocket with the cut-thru slot that yields more effective slot performance resulting in faster ball speeds for shots struck lower on the face. PSi also utilises Face Slot Technology, a feature that debuted last year with the RSi series of irons. Face slots, located on the heel and toe of the clubface, protect ball speed and generate more consistent distance on shots struck off-centre, says TaylorMade.
Finally, an ultra-thin face of less than 2mm contributes to greater distance. The 360 degree undercut expands the unsupported face area and lowers the centre of gravity (CG) to generate the optimal combination of speed, spin and launch angle, giving better players the trajectory they want and the distance they need.
The PSi irons also utilise a progressive spec package, ensuring each iron throughout the set delivers optimal performance. Blade length, top-line thickness and offset increase progressively from the wedges down through the long irons. Available in November, PSi in three to SW, a seven irons set costs RRP £799 for KBS Tour C-Taper 105 steel shafts and RRP £899 for MRC Kuro Kage graphite shafts.
In addition to the PSi, TaylorMade has also announced the PSi Tour iron, featuring forged 1025 carbon steel, precision milled face slots and Speed Pocket. The PSi Tour has a more compact head size and tour-inspired shaping and workability for the best of ball strikers. Additionally, PSi Tour has a thinner topline, less offset and narrower sole than the PSi and its progressive CG position allows for higher trajectory in the long irons while retaining optimum workability.
TaylorMade anticipates the PSi Tour will be its most played iron model on the US PGA Tour in 2016. Available 20 December, PSi Tour irons will be offered in three to PW with Dynamic Gold’s S300 shafts at RRP £899 for a seven irons set. More at: www.taylormadegolf.com
