The Drivers Test 2014: Benross RIP/HOT/MAX Speed 2
Tech: Minor head tweaks and grip and shaft upgrades for 2014. RIP Speed 2 is 450cc aimed at the better player with fast swings.
What we said... James Ridyard: “I like the head shape, deep face and the matt finish. The shaft feels a touch soft and the ball went a little high, but overall it performed well.” Joel Tadman: “The pear-shaped head and matt finish will appeal to better players. It’s workable, but straight when it needs to be. Would have been nice to add some loft to strengthen the flight.” Stephen Kidd: “Sets up great, feels solid across the face. Stock shaft is a real plus at this price point.” Steve Milnes: “My 12° Hot Speed feels light and easy to swing. Bad strikes held their line and I’m a fan of the shape.”
Pros: Clean look, distance and forgiveness.
Cons: No option to fine tune your flight.
The numbers: Looks: 8 Feel: 7.5 Sound: 7 Forgiveness: 7.5 Performance: 8
TG Rating: 7.5/10.
