What we say...
A heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel face and innovative Compressor Technology Response Channel make the HTX Compressor fairway the most forgiving Benross has ever produced. A rearward CG location promotes a high launch for increased carry distance and minimal ball speed loss on off-centre hits.
Benross have done it again and included a very good quality Kuro Kage shaft in the HTX, it’s not quite the same model you’ll find in TaylorMade’s M1 but it is from the same family. For the average club golfer we reckon the Benross is a very good shout. It was amongst the higher spinning fairways on test which means it’s very easy to launch from the deck, but also means in the hands of our test pro it wasn’t an out-and–out distance machine, as too much spin robbed his shots of ultimate carry distance.
A solid without being exceptional performance. But look at the price tag! In the cold light of day golfers might only use a fairway wood a couple of times a round. With that being the case if you can’t justify over £7.50 a yard to be as far as the longest fairway on test the HTX is a very sound alternative.
