Rife RX4 irons are a hollow-core set designed to provide maximum forgiveness and distance – at a value for money price tag.
The entire range of RX4 irons, from 4-iron to PW, have graphite shafts and feature an elongated club head thanks to a much wider sole than normally expected of an iron.
The hollow-core of the club head combines with a steel face for dynamic ball speeds, without sacrificing the kind of forgiveness you would expect from an iron designed such as this.
Rife RX4 Irons Design & Features
The Rife RX4 irons have a unique design with the hollow core the key feature in the creation of the model.
The 431 stainless steel club head has an ultra wide sole for forgiveness, and to prevent loss of speed by digging in, along with an offset hosel. That makes the RX4s oversized compared to other irons.
The RX4 irons have a hybrid-like look and feel to them, and have been designed to be an excellent set for players starting out or who struggle with their irons.
The combination of the hollow core and the high strength steel face of the irons produces what is described as “explosive power and precision”.
The irons come with lightweight graphite shafts and pro line grips.
