Bettinardi’s new 2019 Queen B and Studio Stock series putters

Published

on

It’s a special year for Bettinardi.

Typically, the company releases its BB Series and Queen B/Studio Stock series putters every two years; one year its new BB Series putters come out, then the next year its new Queen B and Studio Stock putters come out, and so forth. For 2019, it’s the year of the Queen B and Studio Stock putters. But not just that, 2019 also marks the 20th anniversary of Bettinardi Golf being in business.

When Bettinardi released its 2017 Queen B and Studio Stock putters, it was the first year that Bob Bettinardi brought nearly the entire production in house at its Tinley Park, Illinois location; now the company does everything aside from plating on the Queen B putters (which are plated in California) in house. Bettinardi has said he wants more control over the process, and the company now has four CNC-milling machines on location.

Now, and as the product of that closer control, Bettinardi is releasing new Queen B and Studio Stock putters. Each of the new putters will be available for pre-order on Thursday on Bettinardi’s website, and they will be publicly available worldwide on January 19, 2019. Let’s see what Bettinardi and his team came up with this year.

Bettinardi Queen B 2019 putters ($400)

Each of the three new head models weigh in at 362 grams. They have micro honeycomb face milling, Soft Carbon bodies, “champagne silver” finishes, and they come with Tiffany blue headcovers and color schemes.

“The new Queen B lineup is perfect in terms of appearance, performance, and feel,” said Sam Bettinardi, Vice President of Bettinardi Golf. “We’ve improved upon two winning designs with the QB5 and QB6, and added a sleek mallet option with our trademark crescent neck with the 10. This is the first year the Queen B Series offers 3 head shapes, and with the demand and excitement for the range, we are proud to expand upon it.”

Bettinardi Studio Stock 2019 putters ($450)

The five new Studio Stock putters are milled from 303 stainless steel. They have a “rich platinum” finish, they’re hand polished, and they have a 20-percent deeper F.I.T. Face (Feel Impact Technology) for a softer feel, according to Bettinardi.

“Every year we look to raise the standard in our production line by incorporating new technology and refining our head shapes, by working with the best players in the world,” said Master Putter Designer Bob Bettinardi. “This year we’ve achieved just that by incorporating 303 Stainless Steel into the line, and milling our F.I.T. Face 20 percent deeper for an inimitable feel at impact across four solid head shapes.”

    Lots of insecure “men” here afraid to use a putter that’s a little feminine looking. QB6 is better than anything I’ve used and a hell of a lot nicer than any OTR Scotty I’ve owned.

    If you need a manly putter to be comfortable by all means go with what works. Won’t be ditching my QB any time soon.

    I used to buy their putters, then they blocked me on Twitter for a simple “WTF” tweet to their 2nd amendment headcover. I’ll never buy from them again. Wish their egos were as hard as the metal they mill.

    Truth is, all of their headcovers and putters are tacky and amateur looking. They have a great feel, but they look like clown sticks.

      Clearly you’re more upset about them blocking you and now you’re projecting that anger. I bet they weren’t “clown sticks” when you bought them, but now that you protest them you also feel compelled to make fun of them to try and get back at them. Not sure how a fully milled putter with navy paint fill looks “amateurish” or like a “clown stick”.

    Nice looking putters, but my Evnroll is basically not replaceable any time soon.

    The aqua color Queen Bs are aimed for the ladies and effeminatized gearhead market…. soooo obvious.

    Thankfully I jumped on a QB8 last year, as it looks like they’re not offering that headshape this year. I absolutely love my QB and can only laugh at the comments focused on the ‘aesthetics’ of looking like a women’s putter. If you’re that insecure about putting a pastel colored headcover/club into play, I think you’re focused on the wrong aspect of the game. But lots of males don’t bat an eye at wearing a shirt that color, right?

    “Queen B”? is this line for those who identify as queens? uh, no thanks!

    $400 is asking a bit much for the looks and “performance” these offer.

    Love that new QB-10 headshape, but the font and colors are a big fail. They should have remade this line as just the “Bee” line or something, drop the cursive font and tiffany blue.

    Meh. Too expensive. Headcover is awesome though

    How is the armlock only 33 to 35″. There is no way that is accurate.

      It’s inaccurate. The arm lock putters are 40-42”.

    Feel the same way. Looks a bit too lady-like for me.

    Way to make a whole line of putters that look like women’s putters. Nothing wrong with that but you’re not marketing them to women specifically so I fail to understand the point. A large percentage of men would not ever but that Queen B line. The headcover alone is a giant fail.

      You have no idea what you’re talking about. The queen bee line was originally designed for ladies with the help of Bettinardi’s wife. Turns out the majority of people buying them by far are men. It’s the same with the Cameron & Crown line. The queen bee putters are among the best selling for Bettinardi, you can thank men for that.

Earlier this week, we heard Titleist’s Vokey SM9 wedges would begin tour seeding at Sentry Tournament of Champions. Now, we have a few morsels of news regarding who those seeds (or would it be fertile plots of soil?) are.

According to Titleist, SM9 was the most played model with a total of 35 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges in play at Kapalua. 15 more than the nearest competitive model (20).

There were 31 new SM9 gap, sand, and lob wedges in players’ bags.

14 players made the immediate switch to SM9 models, including Jordan Spieth, Thomas and Justin Thomas.
