Benross Rip Speed fairway wood reviewJuly, 2013
NCG's team of experts review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the Benross Rip Speed fairway wood...
JaW: I sell a lot of these and it’s not hard to see why – it looks good, is cheap as chips, and performs as well as anything. What more can you ask for? Benross have really hit the nail on the head with this.
RR: This is a proper club. The shaft is really strong and it flies off the face like a rocket. Serious distance and a gorgeous flight. You can feel the head much easier than most other budget clubs. I can’t see why most professionals couldn’t use this.
JoW: A very solid club. Feels fast yet consistent out of the middle. Not fiery by any means but more than enough to give you a nice gap with a driver. The shape is nice and the standard shaft is proper. Superb value for money. Performance-wise for me, it was narrowly inferior to the Titleist, but pound-for-pound there is nothing better.
PC: It feels good and looks fine, very conventional. It spins very low due to the shaft, which brought me a lot of distance.
