Key Technologies

Milled 6061 military-grade aluminum for improved feel; stainless steel topline weight that raises the CG for more consistent contact and roll; vented channel grooves in the sole and flange for extra balance; stealth finish for greater durability.

 

Our Take

Bettinardi chose high-grade aluminum for the BB56 because of the alloy’s weight characteristics, and the result is the company’s premier high-MOI mallet. Stunning looks and feel are standard for Bettinardi putters, and the BB56 doesn’t disappoint.

Fitter Comments

The face-balanced high-MOI design benefits anyone who doesn’t have a lot of arc in their stroke and who desires a soft-yet-solid feel and plenty of forgiveness.

 

Recommendation

Can work for any handicap level, provided they want a larger, high-MOI mallet that’s face-balanced.
