Grip: Queen Bee stan­dard Toe hang: Slight

TECH: Bettinardi’s put­ters are all CNC-milled in the USA. A flow-neck gives a re­ally sim­ple look at ad­dress and a spe­cially milled flange back frames the ball per­fectly from above. A soft, mild car­bon steel head de­liv­ers top drawer feel and feed­back.

WE SAY: Each Bettinardi is milled from a single block of car­bon steel, which means cre­at­ing an ex­pen­sive CAD file for ev­ery di­men­sion and curve on the head. And be­cause the put­ter starts life as a larger block, way more ma­te­rial is wasted than cast­ing. Each head is pro­duced in the USA so labour costs are higher, too. All this goes some way to ex­plain­ing the higher price. If you’re a fan of pre­ci­sion crafted CNC-milled put­ters with a nod to tra­di­tion, you’ll love the #7’s sleek and slen­der com­pact head.

VER­DICT: In a world where prod­ucts reg­u­larly fall off the end of a pro­duc­tion line by the gazil­lion, Bettinardi’s cre­ations are a real treat. Yes, the Queen Bee’s com­pact head is pretty small, so it’s likely to only in­spire real con­fi­dence for de­cent players.
