Bettinardi has updated its range of premium hand-crafted putters ready for the 2019 season, featuring input from world-class Tour players such as Open Champion and Ryder Cup hero Francesco Molinari .
The range consists of 12 premium putters across 3 series, adding to the existing BB models which have already proven popular throughout 2018, and an emphasis is placed upon milling throughout the range to provide golfers with the ultimate desired feel whilst putting.
Bob Bettinardi, the company CEO and Founder, explains the process behind creating the new range:
These new putters have been proven on the game’s biggest stage, along with being significantly tested at our headquarters to produce the best range we’ve ever had. Each putter is hand-crafted in the USA from a single piece of high-quality milled carbon or stainless steel using high-tech CNC milling technology and expert craftmanship.
Bettinardi Studio Stock Putters
All models in the SS series include a Feel Impact Technology (FIT) face which Bettinardi say is 20% deeper than any of their previous models, for an even softer feel at impact. They are milled from a block of highly durable 303 stainless steel metal, and come in at an RRP of £359 .
Bettinardi SS2 Putter
The SS2 putter has returned with aesthetic and performance enhancements. The hosel has moved slightly forward towards the toe, giving the SS2 slightly less toe emphasis than traditional blade style putters. Raised shoulders and rounded bumpers are aimed at enhanced perimeter weighting and produce a revamped look at address.
Bettinardi SS28 Slot Back Putter
To create this year’s slot back, PGA Tour players were consulted, resulting in the SS28 being refined through a finely milled slot in the rear flange, making it much easier to line up to the ball and providing maximum forgiveness at impact. The SS28 Slot Back has a single bend shaft and squarer profile with more weight towards the perimeter for higher MOI.
Bettinardi SS38 Putter
The SS38 is a new design with the aim of creating a more rounded, compact, cavity-backed mallet. It has a high MOI and forgiveness levels, along with a single bend shaft and minimal toe hang.
All SS putters come in a platinum finish with Sapphire blue detailing. They are complete with a royal blue leather headcover and Lamkin Deep Etched Cord Grip, and available in 33-35’ length options.
Bettinardi Queen B Putters
Designed to combine performance and looks, the QB putters are milled with soft carbon steel and completed with a Champagne Silver finish with Tiffany Blue detailing. They carry an RRP of £329.
Bettinardi QB 5 Putter
The blade putter returns to Bettinardi’s putter range featuring a modern head shape, and at 362g is perfect for those who seek a heavier-feeling head. The QB5 also includes cleaner lines, tighter milled radiuses and softer bumpers than its previous incarnation.
Bettinardi QB 6 Putter
The QB 6 is targeted at the golfer who wants a crossover between a blade and a mallet, and features a high toe topline with a wide body and flange. A newly crafted offset shaft provides ideal balance and optimised alignment.
Bettinardi QB 10 Putter
Rounding off the Queen B collection, the QB 10 is for the player seeking a rounded, traditional mallet with softer lines, and features Bettinardi’s signature Honeycomb milled face. It is complete with a crescent milled neck for ideal offset and optimal toe hang.
