Benross HTX Compressor Irons Review: You Should Know
A heat-treated face is teamed with a compression cavity in the sole to minimise ball speed drop off on off-centre hits. Toe and heel weighting maximise head stability improving MOI performance and promoting extreme forgiveness.

Benross HTX Compressor Irons Review: We Say
Its’ been said a million times before, you only get what you pay for, which supposedly implies lower quality products cost less. For us in golf lower price doesn’t necessarily mean lower quality but it does however mean you often get less tech. Compare the HTX to the new Benross Evolution R and there’s no fast face tech which at least accounts for some of the price difference (on a steel shafted set at RRP).
The HTX has an exaggerated low heel-high toe appearance which wasn’t a massive hit with any tester, but of all the SGI irons we tested it also had the sleekest top edge, which is a bit of a strange combination at this end of the market. Compared to the tech laden competition the HTX posted a carry distance 6 yards short and 3mph (ball speed) slower than the test average.

Benross HTX Compressor Irons Review: Verdict
There’s not huge amounts of obvious tech like some of the more expensive models but the HTX can just about hold its own. We couldn’t all quite agree we loved the head shape but that’s personal, we did however like the solid performance and obvious cost saving.
