Queen B

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: Like a grandmother stuck with her daughter’s kids for the weekend, the Queen B’s blades accomplish that difficult but desirable mixture of forgiveness with control. The compact but wider soles on these blades keep the center of the face closer to the hosel axis. This also moves the center of gravity a little farther back for increased stability. The line features different necks to better match different strokes. With its single-bend shaft and spud neck, the #6 works for straighter strokes, and the #15’s gently wider sole and plumber’s neck fits arcing strokes best. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Pretty is better when it has a purpose. The mini-honeycomb face-milling pattern might be a Bettinardi staple, but this one happens to be the softest version yet. Read more>>

Which One's For Me?
6
A wide-body, heel-toe weighted cavity blade that in size lives between compact mallets and traditional blades, it features a single-bend shaft that with the wider, forgiving head is designed for straight-back, straight-through strokes.
15
This traditional heel-toe weighted cavity blade offers a more compact look (about 10 percent smaller from heel to toe than typical shapes like this). Its flange is slightly wider and it features on-quarter toe hang to work best with straighter to slightly arcing strokes. .

Player Comments
Medium-Handicapper
“First thing you feel is how heavy it is in a good way. Exudes balance. Smooths out your stroke like it’s swinging itself.”
Handicap, 8
Low-Handicapper
"Just an all-around quality putter. Love the copper finish. Classy, unique design but not overwhelmingly gaudy to look at. Balls rolls end over end every time. One of the most comfortable in my hands."
Handicap, 1
High-Handicapper
"The 15 definitely has that classic blade look. The copper is regal. Very soft at impact but once you picked your line, the ball was on that line right off the face. Easy to swing with confidence and bring back to square."
