With all the buzz about the slot in the new TaylorMade RocketBladez irons, I kept thinking that I’ve seen that somewhere before. I was certain that I’d seen slotted clubs in the local Second Swing resale shop before it closed. A little research on Ebay quickly turned up the Wilson Reflex.
To be completely fair to TaylorMade, I’m sure that their slot, with its polymer insert, functions differently. But at one level, it shows how hard it is these days to come up with something completely original.
