Benross Evolution R Irons: You need to know
A two-piece head construction has allowed Benross engineers to create a thinner faster face. A polymer insert in the cavity dampens vibration, improving feel and acoustics. Benross say the compact profile produces a true players performance iron.

Benross Evolution R Irons: We say
The Evolution came as the biggest iron surprise to our test pro. Although at TG we’ve known for years Benross have made excellent value for money irons Ben had never hit one of their clubs. He raved about the small head being just what he likes to see in an iron, especially when it’s backed up by a decent sized cavity back and some fast face tech.
It’s got to be said the head is tiny and because it’s got a low profile look we reckon it’s an appearance that will intimidate golfers over a 14 handicap. Unsurprisingly our test pro hit the Evolution very well, recording a ball speed 1mph and carry distance 3 yards down on the test average.

Benross Evolution R Irons: Verdict
Due to the Evolution’s tiny size we don’t reckon it’s for everyone even though it’s in the game improvement iron category. If you are a reasonably confident and consistent ball striker and on the look-out for a fast and forgiving iron alternative to some of the major players for reasonable money it’s well worth sticking on your shortlist to try.
