Golf Monthly Verdict

If you're after a bargain you'll struggle to find anything better than this top-performing wedge. It has the look, feel and performance of a club costing twice as much. It has a lovely feel on contact and just the right head weight for effortless shot-making.

Benross might not be the name you immediately think of when picking a wedge but the thin topline and 'oil-can' finish give this the appearance of a major player. The heads are designed with minimal levels of bounce in the sole for those who like the leading edge to sit tight to the ground at address. This should help deliver a crisp strike from tight fairway and the scope for plenty of spin on the greens.

Jeremy Ellwood has worked in the golf industry since 1993 and for Golf Monthly since 2002 when he started out as equipment editor. He is now a freelance journalist writing mainly for Golf Monthly across the whole spectrum from courses and Rules to equipment and even instruction despite his own somewhat iffy swing (he knows how to do it, but just can't do it himself). He also edits The Golf Club Secretary Newsletter, has authored or co-authored three books and written for a number of national papers including The Telegraph and The Independent. He is a senior panelist for Golf Monthly's Top 100 UK & Ireland Course Rankings and has played all of the Top 100 plus 89 of the Next 100. He has played well over 900 courses worldwide in 35 countries, but put him on a links course anywhere and he will be blissfully content. On his first trip to Abu Dhabi a decade ago he foolishly asked Paul Casey what sort of a record he had around the course there. "Well, I've won it twice if that's what you mean!" came the reply...
