The Mizuno Bettinardi BC6 blade is one of two models introduced to Mizuno’s Black Carbon line for 2009. With the recent announcement that designer Robert Bettinardi and Mizuno Golf are now amicably going their separate ways, the BC6 also represents the final putter produced by this formidable partnership.
The BC6 and other Black Carbon putters boast one of the sweetest sweet spots in golf. It’s soft and supple, but with a firm backbone for excellent feedback. The secret to this sensation is the Black Carbon line’s Feel Impact Technology (F.I.T.) face, which consists of a series of notches milled into the carbon steel head. The stock head weights of the Black Carbon putters change depending on the length of the shaft, allowing for proper swingweight calibration.
Some might find the F.I.T. face to be a bit too soft, and the price tag may be a tough pill to swallow.
