What we say...

Benross' forged better player VX-51 irons are made from soft 1020 carbon steel. They offer superb feel, consistency and shot-making ability. Offset is progressive through the set to improve playability off the longer irons, and the milled cavity backs are perimeter weighted. Tour favourite Rifle Project X shafts are standard, with Dynamic Golf shafts as an option. Benross' Tour players use the new irons, including TG diarist Lee Nash. He says: "They went straight in my bag after the first session.

2009 Review

Another split decision! Jon rated the looks, awarding them 4.5 but Tom wasn't a fan. But in terms of feel both were impressed with Tom suprised by the consistency of the quality of the strike. At £399, with Project X or Dynamic Golf shafts, there are a solid option.

2010 Review:

An impressive performance from Team Benross with the VX51s. Chris wasn’t a massive fan because he struggled to get good feel off the head, but Jon and Dave liked the forgiveness that these forged irons offered and dispersion stats were
good. The extremely competitive cost of these will appeal to many good golfers on a budget.

Combining the soft forged feel better players desire, with the forgiveness most club golfers need is the Benross VX51 iron's strongest asset.

By giving golfers the choice of the two leading steel shafts available (Rifle Project X or True Temper Dynamic Gold ) as standard while ensuring a sub £400 price tag means the VX51s are in a league of their own.

The forged heads are made from exceptionally soft 1020 carbon steel, ensuring maximum feel, feedback and workability for the confident golfer.

Precision-milled cavity backs ensure a thin face construction, perfect weight distribution and consistency between clubs. A set for the serious golfer, who appreciates classic looks, great feel and the best components.

The Benross Forged VX-51 Irons has greatly improved in 2010 from their predecessor!
