    Man, I thought that the Classic Performance Type 1F putter would be the next must have for me, but these look even closer to the BB18. These must be made lefty. MUST!

    Nope..your eyes do not deceive you. BC7 will be shown to everyone else who is not part of GolfWRX at the PGA show. Yes it along with many of the other putters not marked "Proto" will be released then.

    My feelings exactly. Mach1 and I were a little drop-jawed when I flipped that one over. One slot went all the way through and the other half way. Really a great feeling putter. image/yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' />

    Mike..just saw your post. Glad you enjoyed the pics and YES..leave the wife at the hotel next time. The bs session can go on for hours at the clubhouse!



    Anyways...guys..how do you like the new Designed by Bettinardi, made by Belding patent pending cover? I attempted to shake the cover off and it's just solidly on there. Almost like putting on a sock with the standard look. Really a super design. image/yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' />

    Did you get to putt with it? How did the double sound slots differ? Unfortunately, I couldn't get close enough to see the Betts today. They were pretty far away from the ropes. Next time I'm gonna to stick closer to you instead of wandering around by myself. image/friends.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':friends:' />

    Purely judging by its looks and what you've said about it I think it has the potential to beat AM&E to be the preferred cover maker!

    Do the putter heads have a snug fit inside the head? And do you know how much a blank Belding cover would be (just for a comparison with AM&E)??

    The BC7 is really, really good. The new headcover design is a winner. Thanks for sharing.

    image/man_in_love.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':man_in_love:' /> Once again, great pics Reid! The BC7 looks amazing, but the mallets are also just drop dead gorgeus. The BB8 proto design is probably my favorite design, and it looks even better in person!



    The headcover design looks like a winner as well!

    As a Scotty fan, I have to give props to the new HC from Bob, I think he hit the nail on the head with this concept. No velcro, ease of getting on/off and still maintain ability to stitch fancy designs all over the HC



    good job!

    The BC6 and BC7 are the holy grail of all putters.







    Black finishes (oxidization) are not durable and prone to rust. These are durable.



    Carbon steel has better feel than stainless but many prefer stainless because it is maintenance free. These are carbon and maintenance free.



    Other milled putter makers are being left by the wayside because they cannot compete with the roll-groove technology of other brands. One-piece milled putters cannot also compete with the feel of insert putters that are so soft. This one is one-piece, has no insert, but its unique sweetspot pattern gives it both roll-face technology and and extremely soft feel.



    These putters are over 340 grams in headweight.



    And most of all, these putters will be offered to the regular public as a production model, so they will be cheap!



    Man, I am really salivating at the possibility of having thee two putters. Now this will be the definitive Anser and 8802 copies.



    Count me in, I will definitely buy once released!

    I agree with Myndcraft- whatever that proto is it sure looks pretty sweet. Love the new BB2 in black. Add a sightline and I am game.

    That BC7 looks great. One observation though, doesn't that typical blade have a sweet spot much closer to the heel. If so, that 'fit face' milling would seem to be a little too far towards the toe?

    The Fit-Face is closer to the heel if you notice. And there is a little more heft towards the toe - it actually tapers bigger towards there. This means that the sweetspot should be right in the middle of the Fit-Face.



    Bettinardi is quite particular about his sweetspots, and he lines them up with the sightlines, unlike other puttermakers who aren't as particular with sweetpots and have them all over the place.
