What we say...

For me, other than a putter, wedges are the key clubs – and getting it right is the difference between a par-saving short game and an untidy card.

Benross have recognised that, even for mid-handicap golfers, versatility in a wedge is one of thec key factors and they say the new ZipIt Tour groove wedges offer more shot-making capability than their previous options.

Unusually for a wedge, Benross have also concentrated on adding a good amount of forgiveness in the form of a cavity back. This deepens the centre of gravity and adds perimeter weighting but thankfully doesn’t detract overly from the solid feel of the wedge from the centre of the face – an important factor in judging distance control.

My favourite aspect of the new wedges is the removal of offset we’ve seen in previous wedges and for me this goes a long way to improving their versatility. This works really well with Benross’ C-grind sole, which offers relief in both the heel and the toe and this makes it easier to open up and play different shots off a multitude of lies.

They’ve also gone for a much more traditional look with a straighter leading edge – particularly in the lower lofts – and a brushed pearl finish to reduce glare. The coloured bottom groove from previous Benross wedges has also gone.

Another positive aspect, as usual with Benross, is the price. Less than £50 is great value although they have had to limit loft and bounce options to keep costs down. Subsequently, each loft only has one bounce option available – although Benross have been careful to match the appropriate bounce to the loft. The head size is on the large side and the topline on the thick side; not my preference but it will give great confidence to many.

The first thing you notice about the Benross Zip It Tour Groove Wedge is the stunning anti-glare pearl chrome finish. This alone is enough to generate confidence at address. But mid/high handicap golfers will love the versatile and aggressive C-grind sole and the Tour proven teardrop head shape. Every shot will benefit from maximum spin from the conforming grooves to give increased traction, control and shot-making capability.

The True Temper Dynamic Gold Lite Steel Shaft is a solid, stable but lighter weight steel shaft designed to maximise clubhead speed. A low-mid bend point delivers mid-high launch for maximum control. Grip comes courtesy of a quality Benross Concept 10 Tour Traction grip.

This Benross Zip It Tour Groove Wedge also features a performance cavity back, maximum spin from conforming grooves, enhanced feedback from soft 431 carbon steel head, a one year guarantee and True Temper Dynamic Gold Lite steel shaft
