Review: Bettinardi Studio Stock 28 Putter
Bettinardi added a couple Studio Stock models for 2017. The #28 is the one that fit my eye the best. The new mercury grey finish with black and blue paintfill has a timeless look (like most Bettinardi’s do). It is a classic design that is a perfect fit for my stroke. The 1/4 toe hang is ideal for my arched stroke. The 358 gram head is a nice weight that offers solid feel and good balance without getting too heavy. The F.I.T face has a softer feel than the standard Bettinardi honeycomb milling. The F.I.T face combined with carbon steel metal make for an exceptionally soft response when putting the ball. The Lamkin Cord Bettinardi grip is also really nice. It has a firm texture that feels great in my sweaty AZ hands.
There are many putters that look and sound great on paper, but the Bettinardi SS28 became my gamer because of what it does on the greens. The extended flange offers great balance and easy alignment. The compact face looks nice behind the ball. But what I really like the most is that weight of the putter is right behind the ball. I can control the distance much better than when the weight gets out on the corners. My recent rounds have proved that this is my gamer dropping numerous birdie putts and saving par on some crucial holes.
Bettinardi has done it again with a great design, excellent looks, amazing feel and a putter that simply putts the ball in the hole. With the Bettinardi SS28 I’ve had my best putting rounds of 2107. I look forward to rolling this putter throughout the year and keeping the scores low. The less putts I take, the more fun I have. If you are looking to have more fun and lower your scores, this might be an excellent fit for your game. There are couple other options in the same head, center shafted and arm lock so make sure you know your stroke before diving into the wrong putter. But if this is the right one for you; more fun and less putts are potential with this putter.
