Queen B 12

Recommended Posts

Need some help here.  I bought a Bettinardi Queen B 12 a few months ago, not the latest model.  When I demoed in the store I really loved the look and feel of it, was the putter for me.  I ordered it, had a Stability shaft installed.  When I finally got the putter and have played with it for a few months now, ever since I’ve had it, it’s very “tingy” off the face.  It’s almost not the same putter I thought I was buying.  I’ve had my local pro take a look at it, friends have tried it.  Everyone says same, there’s something up with it.  Can’t tell if it’s because of the shaft I had installed or maybe something wrong with the head.  The new Queen B feels nothing like my putter now.  They feel soft, beautiful.  Not mine.  My guy said he can send it back to shop, have them take it apart, maybe get a new head.   Any thoughts on this?  I tried a Swag putter while I was in store other day and I have to say, the Handsome One felt hands down better for me than my Bettinardi.  Thanks.

So did feel change when you installed the Stability shaft? Cause a milled putter head probably wouldn't fail randomly.

I have a QB12 and it also has a ting sound to it. Stock shaft and grip. 

 

The slight "ting" is part of the reason that I like it so much but I can understand others that don't like that. My first putter was the Ping Anser and that ting noise is just something I grew up with. 

 

I don't think anything is wrong with yours.

It’s a 22 model.  It felt soft and beautiful when I was demo’ing it at store.  It wasn’t “tingy” at all which is why I bought it.   After I ordered it, had shaft put on and have played with it for a while now it doesn’t feel the same at all.  My pro even said it feel very dull.  Something is not right with it, sending it back I can’t take it anymore. It looks stunning though which is a shame.  It’s almost as if unless you hit it dead square every time it doesn’t feel right.  Sounds like loose change.   The new 23 model feels completely different, softer more nice.  Like night and day.    Can’t describe it.  I even recently tried a Swag putter and said that’s how I want my putter to feel.

I was surprised how much different the 23s felt compared to the 21/22 versions.  The description of dull is a great way to describe what I felt on the previous generations.  The new ones use a mini honeycomb compared to the micro honeycomb on the previous model.  If you like the feel of the new ones, you might have your answer.  I know I’d be constantly comparing it to what I liked better and it would always be in the back of my mind when I was putting.

I do not notice a huge difference between the feel of the 22 mini honeycomb vs the 23 micro honeycomb. The new honeycombs are 8 percent smaller, I believe. But I rolled Queen Bee 11’s from last release and this one. New one is softer but it’s a little softer. Not a jarring difference. 
 

Personally I think the Stability Shaft adds a deader feeling to putters. I guess that is the low torque but I do not care for it. I bought a putter with that shaft in it and could not get used to it. One of the reasons I much prefer the KBS or Fuji putter shafts. My suspicion is the shaft or whatever ball you are using. Whether the B12 has a little more ting vs other Bettis, I don’t know. I kind of like a little bit of a ting, but it should not be a major difference from what you found in testing.

Yank the BGT and try it again, with a regular shaft, it all changed when you added the BGT.

Prov1.  I think your right above on the shaft, I think putting the stability shaft in changed the feel it’s driving me nuts.  My guy is sending it back and we’ll do whatever it takes.  Of course I also tried the Swag Handsome One and fell in love with that one while I was waiting.   Clearly said this is exactly how I want my putter to feel.  I might just trade it in completely and just buy a new Swag putter.  Not sure.

Those Swags look good. I am always interested in how putter faces feel. I rolled one of these Detroit Putter Company models while on a golf trip and the face felt great. I had never heard of this company and saw this model (with a sight dot only!) in a pro shop at a very nice course in northern Michigan. The availability of CNC milling has changed the game.
