TaylorMade PSi Tour Irons Review

The TaylorMade PSi Tour irons deliver excellent looks and feel with more forgiveness than you would expect from a real player’s iron.

Introduction

While I wasn’t particularly impressed with TaylorMade’s PSi iron – it’s hard to see any upgrade compared to the RSi2 – I think the PSi Tour irons really hits the mark.  This is an iron that delivers the combination that TaylorMade’s marketing promises: better looks, better feel, and more forgiveness thanks to the slots in the face and sole.

Looks

The TaylorMade PSi Tour irons are a great looking set.  The top lines are quite thin, there’s very little offset, and the soles are thin.  It checks off all the items that a better player wants in an iron.

Sound & Feel

My main complaint with the RSi TP irons, the set that the PSi Tour irons are replacing, was the poor feel.  Clearly TaylorMade took my feedback seriously, because the feel and feedback on the PSi Tour are significantly better.  All shots feel fairly soft, but pure shots feel really great.

Performance

While the slots don’t turn the TaylorMade PSi Tour irons into super game improvement clubs, they do boost the forgiveness beyond what you would expect from an iron that looks like this.  Thin shots, in particular, benefit from the sole slot – rather than producing worm burners, they launch at an angle that maintains distance and some ability to holds greens.  When you move toward the heel or toe, the ball speeds will fall off, but not as dramatically as you might expect from a player’s iron.

The slots don’t stop the PSi Tour from delivering all the good things that you expect.  Working the ball left and right is easy, and you can flight the ball down with fairly minimal effort.

Conclusion

While I’ve been thoroughly underwhelmed by most of TaylorMade’s latest offerings, the PSi Tour irons are quite impressive.  They look good, they feel excellent, and their is more forgiveness in them than you would expect.  For the above-average player who still wants a bit of help, these are a solid choice.

  1. Matt,
    I’m stuck between psi tour and apex pro. How do you think they compare?

      Sean,

      I prefer the Apex Pro by a substantial margin for the feel, but I would recommend comparing the two in a fitting.

      Best,

      Matt
