Why We Like It

Designers of mallet putters can be guilty of over-engineering everything—from moment of inertia to center of gravity—and forget about how the face feels at impact. That’s why the Bettinardi team uses the tour-preferred 303 stainless steel from its blade putters in a single piece at the front of these four large mallets. A back piece of softer aluminum provides the stability and alignment features mallet users demand.

Characteristics

  • Each model attaches a 303-stainless-steel front piece to a stability-enhancing aluminum back.
  • Milled grooves in the face are designed to promote a quicker forward roll.
  • Four hosel orientations fit a range of arcing and straighter putting strokes.
  • Four models (6.0, 6.5, 9.0, 10.0) with four hosel types (spud neck, slant neck, plumber’s neck, center shaft); head weight: 360 grams (400 grams for armlock versions); lengths: 33-38 inches and 41 inches; loft: 3 degrees
