    Really underwhelmed. Not a single model appeals to me. Perhaps in the minority now, but where’s the classic heel/toe blade? Ie, bb1 or bb8?

    I do like the finish options but I didn't know about the price jump.



    Also seems kind of odd they would do the ss28 model again. Even though it's slightly different with the cut out. Couple of the QB it's the same story, seems to defeat the 2 yr model plan if your just going to do the same models with small tweaks. Why wait 2 yrs?



    I understand they released 6 new models and that's alot, but are they really 6 "new" models?

    I am so glad they released the QB6 again. It's my favorite model! My last one is a little beat up (i need to get better with putting a putter cover on).... I'm grabbing one of those for sure! $400 is still a great deal! considering i spend more than that on a new driver every year and only hit it 14 times per round.

    Still use my Queen B6. Has been the most consistent my putting has ever been. Probably over the last two season.



    Love all the new releases and new colors. Very clean. If you are looking for a new putter I would certainly recommend the QB6 from experience. Has changed my game!

    I’m still a huge fan of the QB6 as I’m rocking mine from 2015 still. This new one looks a bit cleaner and the milling looks amazing! Definitely would recommend

    Bettinardi knocked it out of the park with these. I really like that they dropped some new designs/ models this year (ss 28 slot back, queen bee 10) as well as kept some old trusted models like the queen bee 6. With the updated colors, finishes, and millings it’s a no brainer for me. Now I just have to decide between the ss28 and the qb10.

    2019 Studio Stock is made from stainless steel but it also says in "Platinum finish".



    I really hope Bettinardi didn't go the route of PING by plating stainless steel...

    I have toured the manufacturing center at Bettinardi and I have seen their attention to detail in person. Knowing that 100% of the machining is done in house and in the USA means something to me.

    I wonder if the Trump Tariffs on steel had anything to do with prices increasing?? I do know stainless steel is more expensive than carbon, so that's the logical explanation....I just confirmed the Stainless steel is not plated... good news!

    Prices have gone up slightly, but an entire 12-lb block that makes two putters costs how much? Not that much. And prices have gone up like 10%. Doesn't justify $50 increase.



    I would imagine the price increase is more because they have taken their entire production in-house. Made in the USA. And that part is great.



    Or maybe they just wanted to keep up with Scotty, Toulon, etc.

    Price jump = steel tariffs! I’m also guessing, the steel parts to machine the putters are also costing more.



    What happened to consumers are willing to pay more, if made in the USA?

    What happened to the graphic on their website that used to show the specific amount of toe hang for each putter?


    If you click the learn more for each putter, then scroll through the pictures. It shows the toe hang.

    These are all incredibly sharp - stock headcovers that come alongside each series look great too! QB6 is the star of the show, but love how clean the design on the SS line is. The arm lock could find a spot in the bag for next season...

    I am a big fan on the new lines. Personally I like what they did with the Studio Stock line this year. The mill marks on the face look really cool and I think they have a very clean look. I also like the milling slot at the back of the the SS28, I think that's a nice touch.



    Happy to see that the SS28 comes in armlock, I will be scooping up one of those. The fit face looks like it's here to stay.

    I agree I like the 2019-2020 line as well. Looks like I will be buying my first Betti soon enough. I like the SS28 and QB6. I’ll probably end up buying both.

    To be fair, this is an update to the Studio Stock and QB lines, the BB series is still current and has their newer BB1(though conspicuously missing the BB8). I don't recall the studio stock line ever having a BB1 or BB8 shape and the QB line is a different animal altogether.

    Price increase is probably to keep up with competitors. Under-priced leaving money on the table. Their analytics probably show that the loss of sales from price increases is negated by upping the margin.

    If you follow them on IG they do a lot of cool photos and videos of them bringing in cnc machines and IG story videos of milling.

    Huge fan of the QB6. Will look to get that this off-season and in to the bag come next season. Love it!
