Bettinardi to release limited-edition BB1 Sound Slot Tiki Putter

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf is launching its limited edition 2019 BB1 Sound Slot Tiki Putter, of which just 250 will be available worldwide.

Just like their limited edition putters from 2018, the newest edition from Bettinardi will once again contain a Hawaiian theme to coincide with the PGA Tour’s opening event of the year, the Sentry Tournament of Champions – with face milling that resembles the ocean waves along the Hawaiian coastline.

The new limited-release putters will feature a sound slot, milled into each putters sole, designed to offer a responsive sound at impact.

The 2019 BB1 Sound Slot Tiki Putter is made from soft carbon steel and milled to 350 grams. The flatstick features tribal-milling along the outer-neck, as well as a sole that displays a great white shark, which is hand painted in a Tiffany blue, pink and white color scheme.

The limited-run putter will feature Bettinardi’s Fancy F.I.T face technology, which aims to produce a soft feel at impact.

The putter is completed in a matte black PVD finish and comes equipped with a perforated black leather Gripmaster grip. The new edition from Bettinardi will also come with a matching Tiki headcover.

The 2019 Bettinardi BB1 Sound Slot Tiki Putter will be available to purchase from select Bettinardi speciality dealers worldwide and online at Bettinardi.com from January 10, 2019. The putters are limited to 250 worldwide and will cost $525.

    Nice putter but I don’t know if I would buy something like a putter that you would use on every hole without even rolling it first just see how it feels!

    Beautiful Betti putter with an equally beautiful turquoise accented headcover and worth every penny. I would be proud to have this beauty in my WITB arsenal of gonadal weapons to show off on the greens of the nation.

    If I had to spend that much on a putter, I would rather get in touch with Machine putters and get a truly made-to-order stick. Bettinardi’s are nice, but they are basically stock putters. I do like the fact this particular putter is a soft-carbon head.

      Machine is out of business, and if you wanted to order a complete custom with Betti you can, just contact their Hive Concierge. This is one of their 4 limited run “themed putters” they make every year.

        Really? How come their website (doglegright.com) is still running with a 2019 copyright?

    Ugly! Expensive! Unoriginal! Looks like you challenged a bunch of grade schoolers with crayons to come up with GRAPHICS for you and NOT an original design.

    Hawaii is not Tiki. Hawaiians want you to know.
    Bettinardi sucks

    This putter CRUSHES the Cameron releases.. Scott uses a head that hasn’t sold that well, changes the sole plate, grip, and headcover and calls it limited. You can see the craftsmanship oozing from the face milling, unique finish, design, sound slot (never offered at retail) and amazing headcover. I might not be a buyer just quite yet but this putter is awesome!

    Yuch.

    It’s still funny to me that after 40 years, the Ping Anser is still the most successful design in golf history. Even today, designers keep going back to Karsten’s original ideas and manufacturing processes. Amazing!

Forum Thread of the Day: “Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips. The shape of the grips has been given the seal of approval from WRXers who have been keenly discussing the SuperStroke creations in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JCM96: “Love SuperStroke’s texture and feel. If they would just release their tapered grips, they’d get a stranglehold of the putter grip market.”
  • jgolf215: “Interesting shape. The colors are pretty understated for him. I would have expected a much brighter green.”
  • nova6868: “Really like the shape on those. Would definitely buy one if they were available.”
  • GoIrish17: “What’s it say? SGP1.0? I like the shape of it; I hope it comes to retail (or SuperStroke sells them through their eBay store). It looks like a grip I’d like to try.”

SeeMore Putter

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases an array of new SeeMore putters. The new flat-sticks from SeeMore have been a hot topic for discussion amongst our members, with the brand’s plumber neck additions garnering plenty of reaction.

For lots more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new putters at the link below.

  • bunta: “The fact that they put the alignment line on the topline of the Ancers makes me feel obligated to give them a try.”
  • poppman2142: “So the plumbers going into the head at such a severe angle is making them face-balanced I assume? I guess I would prefer the hosel to angle towards the center of the face and have the shaft angle back where it enters the hosel, so I don’t see the entire length of the hosel at address to make it face balanced. To each their own I guess!”
  • MaineMariner: “Those are some very interesting and unique hosels. Gotta hand it to SeeMore, they sure are innovative. I could definitely see myself grabbing that plumber’s neck notchback.”
