“Lovely milled head with a responsive face—a keeper from all distances. I’d buy it.”

Cons

Best for mid- and low-handicappers, since it requires a fairly precise stroke; higher-handicappers may struggle with consistency on longer putts; the tiers on the back of the head aren’t for everyone.

Bottom Line

Bettinardi’s Studio Stock #3 is one of the best midsize mallets tested. Those who want a distinct impact feel, as well as forgiveness on occasional mis-hits toward the toe, will enjoy this finely crafted, understated beauty.
