In designing TaylorMade’s the PSi and PSi Tour irons, engineers integrated the company’s new, proprietary Dynamic Feel System (DFS).
Comprised of a HYBRAR blend compression damper and a multi-material cavity badge, this system 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 ti SW), the result is a dynamic approach to feel management.
New to the PSi iron is a revolutionary new Speed Pocket – now a cut-thru slot that feeds directly into the cavity undercut.
The Speed Pocket with the cut-thru slot yields more effective slot performance resulting in faster ball speeds for shots struck lower on the face.
PSi also utilizes 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.
Finally, a thin face (sub-two mm) contributes in supplying this compact iron with more distance.
The 360-degree undercut expands the unsupported face area and lowers the CG to generate the combination of speed, spin and launch angle, giving better players the trajectory they want and distance.
PSi irons also utilize a progressive spec package. Blade length, topline thickness and offset increase progressively from the wedges down through the long irons, delivering golfers an aesthetically appealing look at address.
“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,” he said.
In addition to the PSi, TaylorMade also announced the PSi Tour iron,
Featuring forged 1025 carbon steel and precision milled face slots and Speed Pocket, PSi Tour features a more compact head size.
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.
PSi will be offered in four iron through AW with three iron and SW also available separately.
Golfers will have a choice of KBS Tour C-Taper 105 steel shafts (R, S & X) or MRC Kuro Kage Iron graphite shafts (80/R, 90/S or 100/X) in addition to numerous additional custom shaft options.
PSi Tour will be offered in three through PW with Dynamic Gold’s S300 shafts in addition to a variety of custom shaft options.
