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.
