Benross Rip Speed fairway wood reviewJuly 12, 2013 Golf News
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.
