Five New Bettinardi Putters Revealed

Milled putter specialist Bettinardi is introducing five new putters for the 2018 season, including a brand new BB Series collection and an iNOVAi 5.0 mallet selection.

The full 2018 range, consisting of 12 premium putters across its four ranges - including the  Queen B and Studio Stock models - is hand-crafted from a single piece of high-quality milled carbon steel using hi-tech CNC milling technology at the brand’s state-of-the-art factory, just outside Chicago.

“We’re extremely excited with the range for this season, as we have even more innovative technology mixed with the best face-milling technology in the game,” said Sam Bettinardi, Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

“We have increased the Bettinardi Tour presence across the PGA, European and LPGA Tours and used the feedback from many elite players to refine a range that offers a putter to suit every golfer,” he added.

The new BB Series, which has been part of the Bettinardi line-up since 1999, features a striking new look. Finished in a durable ‘stealth’ Matte Black colourway, the four new BB models feature the distinctive Bettinardi branding in electric yellow, with the same colour used in the deep-etched Lamkin corded grip.

All BB Series putters come in 33”- 35” length options and have an RRP of £279.

Following on from the successful 3.0 model, the new iNOVAi 5.0 uses a 303 Stainless Steel piece in the rear of the putter, connected to the 6061 Military Grade Aluminium to create a full circle offering more resistance to twisting and turning.

Featuring the patented F.I.T (Feel Impact Technology) Face that eliminates the need for an insert thanks to the Bettinardi milling process, the high MOI mallet features a soft feel at impact with a topline alignment aid and two lines on the brushed Stainless Steel.

The iNOVAi 5.0 is available right-handed in standard and centre-shafted options with a black and red deep-etched Lamkin grip corded grip in standard or jumbo size and and RRP of £279.

Continuing into 2018 are the Studio Stock Series and Queen B models, the former being used by Matt Kuchar and made from Soft Carbon Steel feature a Mercury Grey finish providing a confidence-inspiring look at address. All three models incorporate the brand’s F.I.T Face milling.

The Queen B Series features the exclusive Bettinardi Micro Honeycomb Face milling, allowing for a muted, yet crisp feel at impact for players looking for constant speed and feel.
