The TaylorMade R9 TP iron retains the classic look of a traditional iron while incorporating a variety of technical breakthrough designed to enhance performance and help those players playing at the top level of golf or those who are aiming to reach the top level. The compact head includes a semi-straight leading edge, semi-square toe, thin topline and a cambered thin sole. Nick Faldo has influenced the way in which the hosel blends with the leading edge and face to produce a classic looking club that looks as good as it plays.
The longer R9 TP irons feature TaylorMade’s Velocity Control Chamber which placed an enclosed compartment behind the clubface allowing a large area of the face to be unsupported. This increased COR to help with distance while the Chamber’s foam filling offers great sound and feel at impact. The Velocity Control Chamber also allows the weight to redistributed to give the R9 TP irons an exceptionally low centre of gravity and high moment of inertia which helps you launch them high and long.
The TaylorMade R9 TP irons also feature progressive face thickness which allows the COR to increase in the middle and long irons and feel to increase in the short irons. TaylorMade’s Inverted Cone Technology which promotes higher ball speed on off-centre hits to promote consistent distance control. Players can be confident that each R9 iron will deliver the expected distance on each swing.
The perimeter weighted clubhead offers a larger hitting area than the successful Tour Preferred irons, which works with the Velocity Control Chamber to make the longer irons much easier to hit. TaylorMade are confident that many players will reintroduce the 2 and 3 iron into their golf bag when they discover how easy to hit the R9 TP irons are. The TaylorMade R9 TP irons include KBS Tour Series steel shafts and are fully conforming with the 2010 groove rules.
