BB SERIES

The new BB Series, which has been part of the Bettinardi line-up since its creation in 1999, features a striking new look and innovative technology that encompasses the Bettinardi drive for perfection on every model.

Finished in a durable ‘stealth’ Matte Black colourway, the four new BB models feature the distinctive Bettinardi branding in eye-catching electric yellow, with the same colour used in the exclusive deep-etched Lamkin corded grip.

The new Super-Fly Mill Face milling featured on all BB models offers a responsive feel at impact made for players looking consistent speed and feel.

The classic heel-to-toe weighted BB1 blade had been updated with a soft Carbon Steel head to complement its indented neck that flows into the steel shaft.

Its new blade partner is the more offset BB29, which encourages golfers to set the hands further forward at address and throughout the stroke. The indented neck is ridge-milled with the head featuring squared shaped bumpers on both the heel and toe, plus a rounded topline to frame the ball effortlessly at address.

Another newcomer to the range is the BB39 half-moon mallet, made with soft Carbon Steel, that provides higher perimeter weighting for a greater MOI (Moment of Inertia).

“Additional MOI means the head is less likely to twist and turn at impact because of its deeper profile and sleek frame,” says Sam Bettinardi.

The BB39 also includes added material on the flange extending from the topline to the rear, making it easier to line-up with the elongated sight line.

Completing the BB series is the BB56 that adds a new element to the putter category by raising the centre of gravity (COG) higher on the putter. The look of the BB56 is different to that of a traditional mallet style and with a higher COG, the ball will promote a quicker end over roll off the putter face and feel more solid at impact. Weighing 350g, the head is made from 6061 Aluminium and 303 Stainless Steel.

All BB Series putters come in 33”- 35”length options. The BB1 and BB29 features 70° Lie and 3° loft with a 1/2 toe hang; the BB39 comes in 70° lie, 3° loft and 1/8 toe hang; and the BB56 includes 70° lie, 2° loft and 1/8 toe hang. The BB1 and BB56 are also available in left handed models.
