Benross Delta X Irons - Key Features

  • Satin Plated 431 Stainless Steel which adds a far superior feel at impact 
  • A heat treatment process is used on the face that produces a Characteristic of Time (CT) value as close to the R&A legal limit of 239 μs (micro seconds) as possible.
  • New weight distribution design pushes more weight towards the toe, increasing the sweet spot.

Benross Aero X Irons - Key Features

  • Faster ball speed as a result of its 431 Stainless Steel heat treated CT Face design.
  • Optimum CG (centre of gravity) position produces a higher launch angle, which is futher aided by the low kick shafts
  • Forgiving face profile and offset angle provides improved ball striking

When it comes to the best value for money game-improvement irons in 2023, then look no further than either the Benross Delta X irons or the Benross Aero X irons, which are both available to purchase at American Golf right now. 

These irons feature heavily in our best golf irons guide for 2023.

Benross doesn't have the marketing firepower that the likes of TaylorMade, Callaway, PING, Titleist and Cobra have, but that is not to say their clubs can't perform to a similar level. They push them very close. 

Now we won't go as far to say these are the best game-improvement irons on the market, or the longest, but what they do offer you is tremendous forgiveness and a real ease of launch to help you enjoy your golf. 

They also cost well under half the price of a set of premium irons. 

Player Level: 

Both of these Benross irons are best suited for game improvers who want to save a bit of money on their new irons. Delta X provide much nicer feel and a little more distance, but Aero X were more forgiving and easier to launch. Higher handicappers or beginner golfers will want to look at Aero X, and those in the mid-handicap range will definitely prefer the feel of Delta X.

Looks and Feel

As you can see from the image above, the Delta X iron (left) is a lot less chunky behind the ball compared to the Aero X iron (right). 

The Delta X iron has a much thinner topline and reduced offset, which aids it in the feel stakes. 

But both irons look great behind the ball with their clean scorelines, and they both inspire plenty of confidence at address. 

As we say, the feel of the Delta X is a lot nicer than the Aero X, especially when you catch one out of the middle, but the Aero X did feel a lot easier to hit no matter what sort of swing you put on it. 

The sweet spot of the Aero X is a lot bigger, hence why it's a great option for the higher handicapper or beginner golfer who doesn't necessarily care much for a nice feel. 

The back of the Delta's clubhead comes in a nice red/black colour combination, while the Aero X has a neat black/blue finish. 

Forgiveness and Performance

This is really where these Benross irons come into their own, especially when you consider their price points. 

The Delta X irons were not the longest irons we have tested this season, at least not compared to the Cobra AeroJet irons, but they certainly pack a punch for distance. 

While the Delta X irons were also pretty forgiving, it was the Aero X irons that really excelled in this category. 

They were about 5 yards less on average in terms of carry distance across the board, but their offline dispersion was superb. 

The ease of launch with the Aero X really impressed us, too. Higher handicappers and beginner golfers will really enjoy these irons. 

If you want to pay a little bit extra for some really good forgiveness though, then we would have to point you in the direction of the new TaylorMade Stealth HD irons

But if feel and distance is important to you, and saving yourself some money in the process, then we recommend you take a look at the Delta X. 

If added forgiveness and an ease of launch is what you're after this season, then look no further than the Aero X. 

Should I purchase these Benross irons? 

In a cost-of-living crisis, these Benross irons really do look like a brilliant option for game improvers, higher handicappers and golf beginners. 

If you're a mid-handicap golfer who is looking to take your game to the next level then we believe you'll enjoy the Delta X irons a bit more, just because of the added feel and distance, but if you're fairly new to the game then the Aero X is definitely the way to go here. 

The Delta X irons are available from £399, with the Aero X irons coming in at what seems a very generous £299. 

American Golf has just slashed their prices, too, so there is no better time to get involved than right now.
