Golf Monthly Senior Staff Writer Paul O'Hagan tests the Benross Speed Hot driver

Benross Quad Speed Hot driver
Golf Monthly Verdict

GM verdict: Three excellent drivers from Benross. This mid-loft offering produced an impressive high flight and was very forgiving. But... the white crown doesn't reduce glare as well as some. PGA Pro verdict: A modern look with a pleasing shape. It sat well at address and I loved the flight. The graphics are fantastic and give the look of a more expensive model. Great value. Test Team Rating: Performance: 3.5/5 Visual appeal: 3/5 Innovation: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 4/5

Key technology

Three versions of this driver have been released with different head and shaft combinations. This 12° model has a split dual crown to help lower the centre of gravity for a high launch. A specially developed mid-trajectory Aldila Voodoo shaft is also designed to suit mid-to-high swing speeds.
