REVIEW: Bettinardi Queen B 5 Putter
The Bettinardi Queen B 5 is just as elegant on the course as off the course. The functional side of this putter really shines on the greens. I have an arc stroke and this one fits that near perfectly. I like the soft carbon feel at impact. The alignment is very easy with the sight line and the wider flange. This putter rolled the ball exactly the way I wanted it to on every putt. While every putter has a sweet spot, this one’s it pretty large. I didn’t feel that I had to hit dead center to get a good roll. I was really happy with the ability of this putter to hit my lines. The distance control was equally good. While it doesn’t have any fancy face tech, it still rolled the ball very nicely and consistently. I made some misreads, but that certainly isn’t the putters fault. I never felt like I had to manipulate the putter, I could just line it up and stroke freely and smoothly.
Bettinardi continues to impress me with their creativity, elegance and functionality. The Queen B 5 is another outstanding model that will work in the hands of a woman or a man. The headshape and weight are great for golfers with an arc stroke. I really liked how it functioned on the green, but could have easily been a “wall-hanger”. Version after version Bettinardi keeps stepping up the Queen B line. I’ve had the privilege of playing most of them and this one ranks up there with the best. The color palette and design make this both elegant and functional.
