Bettinardi has released its new Antidote series of putters, using carbon steel to craft heads designed to get the ball rolling with top spin more quickly on putting surfaces.
The Antidote series has three head styles -- Models 1, 2 and 3 -- and each putter comes with a weight kit to change out weight ports in the heel and toe areas. By choosing from the pairs of 5-gram aluminum weights, 10-gram stainless steel weights or 15-gram copper weights, a player can shift the weight balance of the putter and change the moment of inertia rating. The overall weight profile moves the center of gravity higher up on the face, above the equator of the ball, to help deliver top spin and smooth roll.
The carbon steel heads are gorgeous and designed to offer softer feel for players.
- The Model 1 head is a heel-toe-weighted blade with a single white alignment line and a single-bend neck.
- The Model 2 is a high-MOI head with more square shape and a long, white alignment line. It's available for lefties and with a center-shafted option.
- The Model 3 is an Anser-style head that's bigger than the Model 1 and more squared-off, coming with the plumber's neck hosel.
All three Bettinardi Antidote models are available for $550 each.
