What Bettinardi says about the Studio Stock 14 Putter:
“The newest iteration of the Studio Stock 14 features essential modifications made by Robert Bettinardi to perfect this classic blade.
“This heel-toe weighted blade offers a distinct appearance from address with its widened flange, flat topline, low profile shoulders, and newly rounded bumpers that melt off the putter head.
“The SS14 features a plumber’s neck and full shaft of offset that make setup and alignment effortless, while half toe hang facilitates a smooth arc through the putting stroke.
“Each Studio Stock Series head is 100% precision milled from a single block of 303 Stainless Steel in our very own Tinley Park, IL manufacturing facility. This blend of metals offers a more durable, responsive, and solid-feeling putter for supreme performance.
“The entire 2023-2024 Studio Stock line features our signature Roll Control face milling, which is engineered to propel the ball into a true roll faster, while giving golfers the softest feeling milled putter in golf.
“The Studio Stock series is completed with our Diamond Blast finish on the topline and body to provide a glare-resistant view from address, while the face and sole are polished giving it a luxurious presence on the greens.”
