BENROSS HTX COMPRESSOR
www.benrossgolf.com Lofts: 3/20°, 4/23.5°, 5/27°, 6/32°
Stock shaft: Kuro Kage Black 70g
Adjustable hosel: No
TECH: Compressor Technology Response Channel means it offers exceptional performance from even the worst lies. A rearward CG position promotes a high launch.
A fantastic head shape, a great blend of wide body forgiveness all wrapped up in a shell that for lots of club golfers will be a confidenceinspiring size. For two testers, though, it was the highestspinning hybrid on test, and that robbed it of carry distance. In the real world it’s not realistic to expect a club that’s half the cost of one of the longest on test to compete, so it should be no surprise the HTX posted a 4mph slower ball speed and a carry distance 14 yards short of the test average.
VERDICT: The shaft and grip are great quality, but with major brands spending so much more on R&D there seems to be a bit of a gap between top tour brands and the smaller competition. Great club at this price, though.
