Bettinardi Studio Stock #7, $375; bettinardigolf.com
Bob Bettinardi, President/CEO and chief designer at Bettinardi Golf, was "messing around" with a mallet putter in his design studio when he decided to cut a half-moon shape in the flange. "Actually, it looked great the first time around," says Bettinardi, "so I decided to put it in the line." The Studio Stock #7, made of carbon steel, has a horizontal pattern milled into the face (it's not an insert) for a pure, soft impact feel. The package is topped off with a striking "borealis black" finish. By contrast, the company's BB Series (carbon steel) features a "metallic fog" finish, and its Signature Series (stainless steel) has a "Tour satin" finish.
