Golf Monthly Verdict

Benross should be proud of this product. I used the HOT Speed 2 fairway in both practice and tournament play, and its performance was amazing. It was easy to use, gave a pleasing high launch angle from the fairway, and I even gained a few extra yards. It has a solid feel, and also looks great, with an impeccable finish. You will struggle to find a nicer fairway wood.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    The entire HOT Speed 2 range offers fantastic performance for players wanting a blend of forgiveness, distance and workability. This fairway wood is no exception, with a head and shaft combination that work brilliantly together. The head size makes it a great alternative from the tee if the driver isn’t firing. However, it isn’t so big that you would struggle from the rough or tight fairways. The shaft will suit golfers with mid to slow swing speeds.

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Players with particularly fast swing speeds will produce too much spin with the HOT Speed 2, and get better results from the Benross RIP Speed 2 offering. Meanwhile, the MAX fairway is more forgiving.
