The TaylorMade R9 golf iron has been developed to provide the performance and distance that a modern player demand in a much more classic, traditional looking style. The result is an R9 iron that looks great but remains incredibly easy to play.
As with the successful Burner irons TaylorMade have designed the long and middle irons separately from the short irons to optimise performance throughout the set. A Velocity Control Chamber sits behind the clubface in long and middle irons which means the thin clubface can be unsupported and gives a similar performance as a thin face driver.
TaylorMade’s reliable Inverted Cone Technology ensure that the extra power and distance offered by the R9 irons remains controlled and consistent while the foam filling of the Velocity Control Chamber provides a soft, agreeable and consistent sound and feel. An undercut cavity in the shorter irons makes it easy to make solid contact and produce the spin when you are firing at the flag and a concealed weight behind the cavity badge provides the stability and forgiveness needed for a confident performance. Every R9 irons features a specially bevelled sole to reduce resistance and help the club guide through impact with maximum force.
The TaylorMade R9 irons feature an option of either a KBS steel shaft or a Fujikura Motore graphite shaft and each and each club conforms with the groove rules that are being introduced for top players in 2010.
