What GolfWRXers are saying about raw wedges

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing raw wedges. WRXer ‘JSSPradlin’ has reached out to our members with a few questions, asking:

“Do you notice that they are softer than finished wedges? How does that help performance?

Do you notice a difference in spin?

How do you keep them clean? Or do you just let everything rust over?”

And our members have been sharing their answers and experiences in our forum.

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.

  • SteelieD: “I play raw wedges. I don’t think there are any real performance benefits other than feel (which is obviously subjective). I like the way they look. I just wipe after most shots them as I do with all my clubs.”
  • wam78: “I play raw wedges and love them! I always have my builder put custom grinds on my wedges which is the biggest reason for playing raw. Plus, I love the rusted bronze look. No glare, which is helpful playing in Dallas. I just wipe them down normally and let them rust over. The face will not rust as much.”
  • MrCook: “For me, they felt ever so slightly softer, though I wouldn’t have noticed the difference without hitting them side by side. It’s very subtle.”
  • QuigleyDU: “There should be a slight but very minimal spin difference because of a tighter edge radius. Tour guys like raw because they are easier to manipulate the grind and bounce. You really should try to keep rust off the face. It will make performance worse. For us mortals. Patina is cool.”

    Non glare, rough face.

    For the milktoast girls, the raw finish hides scratches and small nicks well.

Bettinardi unveils new 2023-2024 Queen B line of putters

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today introduced its new Queen B Series of putters that includes four timeless models.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.

Published

on

Bettinardi has today unveiled the addition of the BB28 to its BB series line.

The BB28 features Aggressive Flymill face milling designed to give the putter a responsive, yet soft feel off the putter head, and offers a full-flange design, which provides greater perimeter weighting and higher M.O.I.characteristics.

This latest addition uses a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishing technology, which is a thin, yet resilient coating that shows off the mill marks in an artisan way.

Each BB Series putter is one-piece milled from 303 Stainless Steel, which is the same blend of material preferred by all Bettinardi Tour staffers, with the metal offering a more durable, responsive, and solid feeling putter for optimal performance.

Bettinardi have also launched the center shaft BB28 putter featuring a 1/4 toe-hang wide-body blade, as well as a BB28 Armlock containing a near-face-balanced wide-body blade.

The BB28 model is available for pre-order at Bettinardi.com ($430) from November 22nd and at retail on January 22nd.
