Agree, but actually shelling out that kind of coin for any stick just makes me cringe.  I picked up my "new Driver" (Callaway Razr Fit Extreme) about three years ago from my instructor, who was a Callaway rep- he never used it and let me have it for a song... so I have not sprung for a triple digit club in recent memory.  a set, yes, but not an individual stick...  course I still remember getting Old Milwaukee 16 ounce 12 packs for $3.99 on Thursday afternoon at Green Hill Liquors in Newark, DE-(the start of our weekend at University of Delaware!!! a LONG time ago!!!)

Bumping this thread up for those who may have questions.  I received several compliments today on how well I've been putting with my Queen B #9!

I have a boo boo / nick on the top of Betty’s face. I have no clue how it happened as I always keep my putter cover on.

Other than the nick I am still putting well and happy to report no issues with rusting.

That looks like a manufacturing defect- looks like Bettinardi is having issues not only with rust, but hardness of the putter, and maintaining the finish...  Not good...

My wife made the same statement you did. She said no way should that putter ding that easy. Sometimes you carry a wedge back to the cart with putter in hand. That’s the only way I could imagine it chipped like that although I don’t recall the two clubs clicking that hard together .

Never seen any of my Over 50 Bettinardi's ever have a problem with finish or denting and chipping like that pic. I'd  have to really see it in person but it looks like it took quite a bump along the top line for it too have a finish chip off and leave a ding. Something like another club banging into top line with some type of force. Unlike a forged iron where they are clanging together while walking 18 holes for years at a time clubs get those dings, and yes sometimes the chrome finish can get screwed up. But I haven't seen that with any of my Bettinardi's at all and I've owned easily 50 or more over the last 20 years. I'd take some pics and call or write Bettinardi and talk to them and see what they have to say. They might just help you out.

Yea they do have excellent customer service as I've had to return one already due to rust issues.  As I've said earlier, I have no clue when the ding happened and truth be known, I would be a bit embarrassed to ask to return it again.  Being a tester you get to keep the product and this one happens to be an expensive one.  I hate to rattle the cage again. It's a great putter and I have totally enjoyed it. I wish I knew how the damage happened because at least then I could understand it better.

    Hi. We are addicted to golf and rent high-end golf clubs (PXGs, Callaways, Titleists, and TaylorMades) on demand in the LA area. My Golf Spy looks like a great site and we look forward to interacting with other golfers on the site.

    he best players don't get overwhelmed with mechanical thoughts as they stand over the ball. They pick one feel-based thought and go with it. Steal one of these tour thoughts for some pre-swing clarity.
