BENROSS HTX COMPRESSOR

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 £150, 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 £23 a yard (compared to the longest driver) is worth it to get further down the fairway. If £150 is your budget, you will be delighted with it.
