Golf Monthly Verdict

The Benross REV 2.0 wedge offers superb value for money thanks to a soft-feeling face and generous spin for good control around the greens. The large, spoon-shaped head, combined with high bounce and wide sole, may not suit lower handicapped golfers but will delight those looking for extra assistance with their short game.

Benross has really made a resurgence over the past year or so, bouncing back into the market with some quality product at affordable prices that feature new technology and the appealing looks to match. The new REV 2.0 wedge comes to market at just £79 but the clean aesthetics give this wedge the look of a club that comes in at a far higher price point.

The dark satin gray gives the REV 2.0 a premium look and reminds me a lot of the nickel finish I love so much on the Titleist Vokey SM10 wedges. The looks of the REV 2.0 wedge don’t translate quite as well when the club is down behind the ball as the head is very large in profile and noticeably rounded in shape. The full-face grooves, said to enhance spin on open-faced shots, make the head look even bigger at address.

While the shape of the head and look at address didn’t particularly suit my eye, it reminded me of the shape of some of the most forgiving wedges. I could see how this wedge could massively boost the confidence of those struggling around the greens. The CNC milled face itself did relay a crisp feel when clipping balls and despite not liking the look of the full-face grooves, I thought they helped in situations when I was looking to be more creative around the greens.

When hitting fuller shots with the Benross REV 2.0 wedge I was surprised with how easy it was to launch the ball and create generous stopping power on the greens. Despite a bladed look found among some of the best golf wedges, the REV 2.0 wedge offered a really wide sole which made turf interaction smooth and pleasant, even in more sticky lies in the rough. The wide sole and high bounce combination in the 56° wedge I tested did make playing off firmer ground more difficult, with short-sided shots and shots playing off tighter turf proving particularly tricky.

All in all I think there’s exceptional value for money in the Benross REV 2.0 wedge. There was generous spin to be had even when playing from the rough and the soft 304 stainless steel face provided good feel, helping control distance and trajectory with chip and pitch shots. If you tend to get steep into the ball and need a cost-effective way to stop the club digging, this could be a good option.
