New email sent out today from Bettinardi - looks like there is a new limited release offering.  Says that "The Hive" is filled with custom RJB creations... Just went onto the site and noticed custom wedges in a sweet black finish where only one is available per loft (!), and then several putters as well including an FCB model.   Looks to be completely different from the other lines released earlier this year and at a more customized price point as well.

Posted a few pictures below of the FCB model.  Looks to be available at lengths from 33" to 35" and with different face options.

Anybody else have info on this??

Saw this on Instagram yesterday... didn't have much on it on the Gram but looks sweet. Studio refinish is looking good.

let me give this thread some life.... PICTURES.

I love everything in this limited release. My favorites are the the wedges and the BB8 tri-sole. I love the color schemes here. Great work from the RJB R&D department putting this stuff together.

The hive when completed will be a room that houses some of the most unique items they have to offer. I've been told very limited type pieces.

Lowest wedge loft is 52*

Man, I was too slow! Doesn't surprise me they are going so fast though. Such a unique look and already know how great Bettinardi equipment plays.

They made a 52, 54, 56, 58, 60 in three different color schemes.  Looked like they were sold out same day, and I guess FCBs gone now, too.  Gonna have to act fast to get in on the Hive action...

Not certain yet but hoping so! Thinking this might act as a testing ground for future production lines.

Not yet on the website, but this was posted on the Bettinardi Instagram. I love that BB34, and those welded necks are sick.
