The new 2015 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x models, available in golf shops beginning Feb. 2, are the result of a continuous process rooted in rigorous research and development, technological advancements, comprehensive player testing and validation, and precision manufacturing.
Designed for all golfers seeking to shoot lower scores, 2015 Pro V1 and Pro V1x deliver exceptional distance with consistent flight, more short game control and even softer feel from a new, patented urethane elastomer cover formulation, and long lasting durability. Comparatively, Pro V1 has a softer feel, slightly more long game spin and a penetrating trajectory for a shallower angle of descent for more roll. Pro V1x offers a slightly firmer feel, lower long game spin and launches higher with a steeper angle of descent.
Two years ago, TaylorMade introduced “Speed Pockets” (a slot in the sole of the iron to improve shots struck low on the face of the iron). The company has taken everything it’s learned from the development of the Speed Pocket technology (originally introduced in its revolutionary RocketBallz fairway wood) and applied it to the iron face to activate the toe and heel areas to provide more uniform flexion across the face and protect ball speed on off-center hits.
Introducing the new RSi iron family featuring Face Slot Technology, this is the next great innovation from the company pioneering the performance of the modern distance iron.
