TECH: An im­proved Com­pres­sor Re­sponse Chan­nel in the sole im­proves ball speeds across the face to help max carry dis­tance.

WE SAY: Benross has been the king of “value” driv­ers for the best part of 10 years and it’s fair to say the Com­pres­sor looks set to con­tinue the trend. Its whole de­sign shouts for­give­ness and playa­bil­ity, and by throw­ing in such an im­pres­sive pack­age of com­po­nents for less than US$193, it’s just what lots of club golfers are af­ter. The un­of­fen­sive head de­sign de­liv­ered a bit more spin than most, which will help golfers flight shots to max­imise carry with­out rob­bing them of dis­tance. It wasn’t the long­est in our test, giv­ing up an av­er­age of 14 yards of carry across all three testers.

VER­DICT: Only you can de­cide whether US$29 a yard (com­pared to the long­est driver) is worth it to get fur­ther down the fair­way. If US$193 is your bud­get, you will be de­lighted with it.
