Review: Bettinardi Studio Stock #9 Putter
On the course this putter shined from day 1. I went out to the course, with no time to spare for the practice green and proceeded to have an excellent putting day. It really saved my score. It might have been my best ever, but it was really quite good; no 3-jacks. I kept this putter in the bag longer before writing this review because I just wanted to do something a little longer term and I found a real comfort level with this putter. Since I’ve been gaming a Bettinardi for many of my rounds even before I got this putter, the feel was identical to previous putters. The soft plated carbon putters by Bettinardi feel like no other, they are just so soft, yet firm enough to have excellent distance control and touch. The form and function just fit very well to my stroke and my game’s needs. After 10 rounds it fit into my bag very nicely.
Form and function are just a part of what makes this putter so appealing, its beauty is what makes it a true winner by Bettinardi. The Studio Stock series has a black finish again. It is similar to previous black finishes, but just a tad less rainbow effect. The paint color for 2012 is lime green and white, which are matched with a Winn grip and headcover. It is a real looker again, slightly bolder and brighter than previous versions of the Studio Stock line. Bettinardi combined form and function in a beautiful package with the Studio Stock #9.
