What we say...
You need to know:
Bettinardi’s putters are all milled in the USA so quality can be guaranteed. The BB1F is 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.
It’s no wonder 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 poured over to deliver a top class putter. That’s what you buy into when going for a 100% milled putter, ultimate manufacturing control. The flow neck 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, where the blade opens on the back swing and closes on the follow through. We loved how it encouraged getting the hands ahead of the ball and really stroking the ball across the green rather than hitting at putts with a damaging wristy stroke. The traditional sized grip also works really nicely on a blade and of course it goes without saying feedback from the mild carbon head was amongst the very best.
With a decent price gap between Bettinardi and Scotty Cameron putters now there’s a real choice to be made between the two. It’s worth remembering if you prefer a softer feel Bettinardi offers different face/groove patterns on other models so you can tailor feel to your own game.
