Who Needs Anchoring? Get a Bettinardi Counterbalance Putter
Bettinardi 2014 BB1 Counterbalance Putter Review
By : Independent Golf Reviews
Since the USGA has “outlawed” anchored putting, every putter manufacture has been looking for a way around the ruling or at least giving golfers something to help their putting. Bettinardi has 2 different putter styles to help those that were previous anchorers or who would like more stability in their stroke. The first is the Matt Kuchar line which is designed to be played with his arm lock style. The second is the new Counterbalance putters of the BB line.
The Bettinardi CB putters are similar to a regular putter with 45 grams of extra headweight, an extra 3″ of grip and 37 grams of backweight. This extra 3″ puts some weight above your hands to move the balance point and to create a pivot point that feels somewhat like anchoring without it touching your body. The overall concept behind counterbalancing is to create stability without it physically touching something to do so. I think that Bettinardi nailed with with their Counterbalance putters.
