ClubTest 2015: Bettinardi Queen B 6 Putter
Bettinardi Queen B 6 Putter
Category: Blade Putters
WE TESTED: 35" shaft length
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The face-balanced, carbon steel blade has a wide flange for added confidence at address.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Forgiving and consistent across the face, even on heel and toe strikes; imparts a lot of energy to the ball—gets it rolling quickly, without skips or jumps; great feel equals good control, especially on medium to short putts.
FEEL: Easy to use—steady, reliable, and buttery soft across the face; the heavy weighting combined with a face-balanced clubhead helps testers deliver a confident, controlled stroke; doesn’t seem to twist, even on mis-hits.
LOOK: Oversize rectangular head sports crisp lines that sit square at address; head shape combines with a single white sight line to create a refined look that’s easy to align; iridescent finish on matte metal is unique and attractive.
The Queen B 6 isn’t for players who want a light head; a single, simple alignment line won’t suit guys who need a lot of visual cues to properly aim the putter; a few testers say it requires a bit of trial and error on longer putts due to its weighting.
BOTTOM LINE: The broad-bodied Queen B 6 is for players of all skill levels looking for a heavier-headed blade that’s well balanced, feels soft and offers a fair amount of forgiveness. This one delivers all the above in an elegant package.
