TaylorMade has announced the launch of three new RSi irons - the RSi 1, RSi 2 and RSi TP.

The RSi 1 and RSi 2 will be available from mid November, with the tour players version coming to retail in early 2015.

The key innovation on the new RSi irons is the introduction of Face Slot technology.

The slots sit either side of the grooves on the 3-8 irons and help promote uniform flex accross the entire face, helping with consistency on off-centre strikes.

The RSi irons - which feature the brand's pioneering speed pocket technology - also promote a higher launch and increased ball speeds for longer carries.

The RSi 1 irons are designed to give game-improvers more confidence over the ball. They are slightly larger in size that the RSi 2s

RSi 2 irons have forged short-iron faces and tungsten weighting in the long irons to promote both feel and forgiveness.

Head shapes are slightly smaller than the RSi 1s and consequently designed to appeal to those with lower handicappers
