Bettinardi Signature Series Model 6 Putter

Bettinardi Signature Series Model 6 Putter
Category: Midsize Mallet Putters
Price: $495
WE TESTED:
34", 35" shaft lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The tiered design moves weight to the heel and toe for a bigger effective hitting area. The head is milled from "double aged" 303 stainless steel.

PROS
DISTANCE CONTROL: This club's best attribute is consistent ball speeds with no surprises off the clubhead; grooved face gets the ball rolling quickly and on line.
FEEL: Rich, lively "click" at impact; a well-balanced club that responds very nicely to center contact.
LOOK: Compact, traditional mallet with a single black aiming line; understated silver finish; a bright, jeweled clubface that isn't visible at address.

CONS
Mis-hits feel worse than they end up; not the easiest putter to align, which makes short putts a little tougher than they should be for several testers; some guys find the leather grip to be too firm and slick.

BOTTOM LINE: A small, conventional mallet that performs very well on good strokes, but might not give you everything you want on slight misses.
