First Bettinardi
« on: February 15, 2007, 08:43:15 AM »
I am looking to purchase my first Bettinardi to try as a gamer.  I would like to get a BHB-8C but I don't know what a good price would be.  There are some on ebay for $100.  Is that a good price?  Also, are there any other Bettinardi centershafted putters out there?

I am normally a Scotty guy, but can't bring myself to buy one of his centershafts for $500+.

Thanks.

The BB43 centershaft is worth every penny IMO but they are expensive :) There is also the BB23 which you can find a bit cheaper. There is a BHB-8C on Ebay  Item number: 140086121878 with a BIN of $140. I did not follow the Hogan Bettinardis very close but but I've noticed if you spend a little more money on a higher end putter they seem to have a better resale value.

Just seen the one for $99 BIN  :) I really don't think you will find it any cheaper then that.

I bought 2 BHB8Cs because they were $99. I have a few other Betts to compare them to. They are just as good qualitywise despite what others say.

The only thing I don't like with the Hoganardis is that the headweights are usually in the 335 range. The BHB8C that I game every so often has maybe 15-20 grams of lead tape on the bottom after I cut it down to my preffered 33.75" playng length.

I'm probably going to end up selling one since I bought a 360Cw as a Bett centershaft.
