BETTINARDI BB1F

www.bettinardi.com Head­weight: 350g

Grip: BB Se­ries stan­dard Toe hang: Strong

TECH: A classic flow-neck blade with toe and heel weight­ing for a good de­gree of for­give­ness. Each head is cre­ated from a blend of mild steel to de­liver a great sound and feel at im­pact. Milled in the USA.

WE SAY: With such sleek de­signs Bettinardi’s stock is con­tin­u­ally grow­ing in tour player cir­cles. Ev­ery di­men­sion, curve, mill mark and even the pat­tern on the face (which Bettinardi has worked out af­fects feel) has been pored over to de­liver a top-class put­ter. The flow­neck means you get more toe hang than most of the blade put­ters we tested, so it’s par­tic­u­larly well suited to strokes with a stronger arc. We loved how it en­cour­aged get­ting our hands ahead of the ball and re­ally stroking it across the green, rather than hit­ting at putts with a dam­ag­ing, wristy stroke.

VER­DICT: With a de­cent price gap be­tween Bettinardi and Scotty put­ters now there’s a real choice to be made be­tween the two.
