Titleist TSi2 Vs Titleist TSR2 Drivers Comparison Overview
It can be very hard to tell what the key differences between the Titleist TSi2 and the TSR2 drivers are.
They have very similar features and profiles; but make no mistake about it, they aren’t for the same type of player.
We know because we actually tested the Titleist TSi2 and the Titleist TSR2 side-by-side.
While they are for different players, they both have their strongpoints so pay attention as we compare the Titleist TSi2 and the Titleist TSR2 drivers.
Titleist TSi2 Driver Overview
“The Titleist TSi2 is a 460cc driver and comes in 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0 degree loft versions.”
However, it should be noted that the Titleist TSi2 also has an adjustable hosel that allows your fitter to tweak the loft and face angle a bit.
The Titleist TSi2 features a 425 Titanium face which is the same material used for the face of the Titleist TSR2 driver.
We found that the Titleist TSi2 was forgiving on heel/toe mis-hits and low-face mis-hits. The spin rates we were getting were a bit high though – usually well above the 2500 RPM mark.
Still, it’s very easy to lock onto the sweet spot of this driver and nail it consistently. The flight was also similar to that of the Titleist TSR2 both drivers produced a mid-high launch that drops off steeply.
Titleist TSR2 Driver Overview
“The Titleist TSR2 comes in 8, 9, 10 and 11 degree loft versions and sports a 460cc head.”
And like the Titleist TSi2, the Titleist TSR2 has an adjustable hosel. The main difference between these two drivers is spin rates.
The Titleist TSR2 produced much lower spin rates than the TSi2. As a result, our carry distance was consistently better with the Titleist TSR2.
The Titleist TSR2 also has a variable face thickness design; but it wasn’t as forgiving on low-face mis-hits as the Titleist TSi2 driver was.
If you’re a faster swinger, you’re going to want to go with the 9 or 8 degree loft version of this driver.
“Both the Titleist TSR2 and the Titleist TSi2 produced a very satisfying, high-pitched crack at impact. And the sound was consistent over almost the entire face.
But faster swingers will want to take advantage of the low-spinning Titleist TSR2. The Titleist TSi2 would be better for players who struggle to consistently hit the sweet spot.”
