After much searching this beauty as been added to the bag for this season.

As a lefty putter, It's frustrating how few choices we have.


My criteria.

Face balanced (this does have the slightest of toe hangs. 1/8)

Carbon milled or softer face (not mushy soft , no insert)

Simple looking at address

Good long sight line

Can pick up the ball with the putter (Yes it's important to me LOL)


Only problem has been adjusting the weight of the head after cutting an inch off the shaft to play at 33".

Settled on regripping with a 30 gm lighter grip and adding some lead tape to the hosel (couldn't cover the gorgeous bottom of that head).


Who's still playing the QB6 2019?

Love to hear your experiences on course.

    I had the same issue with cutting it down. Sadly because of this, I will have to switch out to a different manufacturer. I loved the stock sw and feel, which I lost after cutting it down.

    That's too bad.

    Try what I did first. I'm very happy with it now.

    Little trial an error.

    First it was all lead tape under the head. Felt cumbersome.

    By changing grip that allowed me to only have to put 1/3 to 1/2 what I had on the hosel.

    Once I get on course in the spring and make sure I'm happy with the weight, I'll leave it alone, add or subtract from the hosel and then pore lead/tungston powder down the shaft the equivalent of what's on the hosel.

    That was the problem. I fell in love with the Betti Jumbo grip. I want that on whatever putter I get next. Unfortunately, it can't be Betti.

    When I cut it down I also put the jumbo grip on. Very nice grip. But I like the putter better :)

    Replaced with a SS Traxion Tour 2.0 in the new grey. Saved 30 grams!

    Missed my QB8 that I got rid of last summer so just got my QB6 about a week ago. Haven’t rolled it yet but hoping I can answer ‘yes’ to your question in the coming weeks...

    That said, I think that where my honeymoon ended with the QB8. Just like posters above, I play mine at 33” and tinkered with grips, reluctantly cut it from 34” to 33”. Tried other grips. Had 2 back to back bad rounds on the greens and off it went.

    Must be more QB6 players.

    I've yet to get it on a course. Love to hear about your experiences.

    Just got one. Played three rounds so far with it. I like it, it makes birdies.

    That's what I want to hear!


    Must add I was fitted at TXG here in Toronto. They did an excellent job of finding proper length, lie, loft and adjusted them all on the spot.

    Can't wait to get it on a putting green.

    While it's winter up here I must live vigorously through you folks. LOL

    Got the same treatment from Golf Galaxy in Downers Grove, IL. Sam putt lab fitting and they bent loft and lie on the spot all free of charge.

    I was trying to schedule a fitting at the Bettinardi studio for a month but they were terrible at getting back to me.

    That's too bad about Bettinardi fitting service. Seen it other times with different manufacturers.

    Years ago I went to Callaway for an iron fitting and he had only 4 shafts to try. The guy was as frustrated as I was.


    In the end do what you do best. Bettinardi makes some fantastic putters.

    Glad you got looked after well at GG.

    I gamed a blackout QB6 all of last year. I loved it, was the best putter I’d ever used, and I will never get rid of it.

    I picked up a blackout Inovai 6.0 and it’s my current vote for best putter ever. It’s so **** stable.

    I play both at 33” inch and the entire bottom of the qb6 is lead tape. Head weight is probably 365g. I had tungsten powder added down shaft of the Inovai and they added too much, it’s probably at 367g. I almost had them redo it, but decided to try 5 wraps of tape under the grip to get the same swingweight and I absolutely love it.
