Bett question ?
« on: February 29, 2016, 02:59:26 PM »
  My question is, what is the difference in the BB0 vs the BB1 heads ?  Have never owned a Bettinardi so I am completely dumb on their sticks.  Want to try something  in either a BB1 or BB8 head.  But the BBo looks great too.  Just don't know enough about them yet.  I have read the carbon,dass, limited, studio stock, tour stock posts, but am more concerned about head weight.  Need something at least 350 g's and would really like something closer to 355.  No mallets, has to be a blade.  Thank's for the help !!!

Good to know that I'm not the only one that doesn't know the difference.   :o

The BB0 is wider from face to flange, and beefier looking than the BB1. 350g is available in both models.

This is not the place for a WTB post. SwapShop for that when you qualify.

Thanks for the reply.  Not a WTB ad.  Trying to learn a few things about Bett's before I purchase something I won't like.

I like Bettinardi because the head and neck are milled in one piece, no welded neck unless requested. Also RJB is a metallurgist and meticulous when it comes to putters. Just because someone owns a mill and makes putters is not a reason to buy one. The BB1 Tour, like my avatar is not like every BB1. They are a work in progress and RJB updates them periodically. I prefer these to the BB0 which I had and sold. I like a rounded top line, not flat. Add to that the fact that RJB milled SC putters in the early years makes for a great reputation.  JMHO

"Just because someone owns a mill and makes putters is not a reason to buy one".......is true! I'd argue that any man putting his last name on a putter is a metallurgist and meticulous when it comes to their putters. Speaking of that Ken "Lumpy" Uselton is the first maker to to ever use Niobium for a putter head. Kari Lajosi is the only guy I've seen forge his own damascus steel. MannMade, Xenon, Lajosi and Gene Nead are the few maker actually making putters out of other materials besides steel and copper and in my mind true Metallurgists and artists,....artists because they make them by hand and mix up the metals! Scotty and Betti don't really do that anymore unfortunately and they don't make better putters.... this is again JMHO

Is there any reason these different metals help get the ball into the hole? I'll get some unatainium and mill a putter and be famous. Exactly what does Damascus steel do for a putter? It's great for knives but I cannot see paying that price for a putter. Do you know for a fact these boutique putter makers are all metalurgests or are you just assuming that? Since Scotty Cameron felt Bettinardi did the best job of milling and made a partnership in the early 90s I think that validates his skill. Can these other putter manufacturers mill the head and neck out of one piece of metal? Bettinardi can and did have a patent on that. That was one of the main reasons I first bought one. No two welds are the same. Like what you like and buy what you want but why try and put down a known putter manufacturer? One other reason main reason I like his putters is because they are made here in the USA.

The one piece neck and head is old news, most makers can do this if they want. I suggest doing some homework on these other makers, that way there isn't any guess work. Your point is spot on, as long as the ball goes in the hole who cares what the head it is made of, but that wasn't my point! At one time Bettinardi was known as a boutique putter maker, some might still consider it so. I'm not putting down any maker, I own a handful of Bettinardis....really nice ones!! I own a Scotty too, but not my point here. The makers I'm talking about go above and beyond a one piece head and neck, you'll discover this once you get one in your hands. And finally....let's see Bettinardi or Scotty make one of these.......no welds here!

You didn't answer my question on WHY use such expensive materials for a putter besides paying a ton of money? In a sport that is declining paying huge amounts of money for a putter seems a bit odd. I have stated any putter over $500.00 is extreme and really not needed. That is my opinion like it or not. If I had to get a putter that won't break the bank it would be a Ping. I said buy what you like, use what you like, so why do you keep this going? I really do not know what you are trying to prove or exactly what your point is regarding you're reply.  As far as the putter you posted I wouldn't buy it at any price. Is that the reply you were looking for? Does the weird bend make you sink more putts? I prefer putters w/o the bend shaft. I use the putters I like, not the ones YOU like. Is the clear enough?

That was strong!  I would have thought more Bettinardis would be on the list, but I also know Camerons and Odessy are the most played on tour.

I think many of these 'new' putters are more of a work of art than a putter. I purposely have putters with minimal stampings or any or distracting marks. Considering only a few Bettinardi putters are used each week compared to the amount of the major golf manufacturers I think they have done well. Total Bettinardi Wins in the USA:

Well, if I cannot state my opinion like everyone else does I'd rather not be here. I suppose the koolaid and sugar remarks, which had nothing to do with the topic is OK but my posts were not? They are childish.

Wow.  So much for discussing the differences between BB1 and BB0. 

I think the reason so many good putter companies exist is because we can all choose to like what we like, for whatever reason.  Looks, feel, bling or plain.  Most of us I think own a little of everyone's work, either now or in the past or maybe the future.

Discussing / Recommending other putters in the Bettinardi section indicates a total lack of class IMO. They have their sections. I one one Betti out of 11 putters. It's an awesome putter and I love it. Seems like there are a lot of haters here, why?  I go to various sections to read and learn about their putters. Why is Bettinardi now being disrespected in its own section?
