Bettinardi BB1


Pesquado
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

 

I just picked up this BB1 off a local classifieds for a really good price. I know Bettinardi make amazing putters, but as this is my first Bettinardi, can anyone tell me a little more about it? Why does he do the honeycomb milling on the face? What are your experiences with the different versions of the BB1? Which BB1 model is better than others? Which BB1 is more desirable than others?

 

Cheers,

 

Jon

So the BB Series from Bettinardi is their lower more entry level model for consumers into Bettinardi. They're not cheap in terms of quality, everything Bettinardi mills is quality. The one bonus of the BB series is it's probably one of the only OTR carbon putter options. 

 

The BB1 is kind of a hybrid shape between an Anser and an Anser2. It's longer heel to toe than an Anser and doesn't have that thin top line like an Anser 2 usually does. It's not their nicest shape but not their ugliest, at address it's fine and it works. 

 

The Honeycomb milling is just kind of their trademark milling, no one else really does it or can copy it as well. But they ditched that on the BB series in 2018 for the fly-mill and moved the Honeycomb to the Queen Bee series and some limited Hive, Tour or Custom options. 

 

As for most popular BB1 putters I'd say that one which is the 2016 and the 2018 are probably the most popular. The earlier ones people like as well but tend to hunt some other shapes they don't make anymore. Thr 2020 version in my opinion is the ugliest and they should just retire the BB1 and make the BB8 shine as it's a much nicer shape and the BBZero never comes to retail. 

 

Hope that helps

Interesting point of view.  I prefer the 2020 bb1 and bb1f,  best finish.  Non glare.  Feel distance control precision.  Such a great putter for the price.  I like the skinnier profile.  Putter just works..

The milling and finish are great. I just don't like the profile. But I guess if you want a Anser 2 side with rounded bumpers it's perfect
