What if there was a putter that could physically improve the consistency of your backswing, face angle at impact, ball speed, and ball direction? Well Odyssey have actually gone and produced it...
Whether they know it or not, most golfers' putting strokes are inconsistent. The majority of current putter technologies aim to improve putter alignment or the quality of roll, but Odyssey have just stepped it up a notch. The new Odyssey StrokeLab putter family helps improve the stroke through a profound change in weight distribution made possible by an innovative new shaft.
The StrokeLab shaft is a full 40 grams lighter than previous Odyssey shafts, made possible by a new multi-material shaft design that combines a graphite body with a steel tip to net out at just 75g, with most of the mass concentrated in the tip. Odyssey has redistributed that saved weight by adding 10g to the head in the form of two sole weights, and adding 30g to the grip-end via a 10g-lighter grip and 40g end-weight.
Odyssey studies indicate improvements in the consistency of backswing time, faceangle at impact, ball speed, and ball direction. Feel for the putterhead becomes more acute, helping the golfer repeat the same, smooth stroke time after time. GolfMagic had the opportunity to try these putters out and the results were incredible, our strokes were much more consistent.
The Stroke Lab line-up consists of 10 different shapes - six mallets and four blades - all with Odyssey's new White Hot Microhinge insert for smooth roll and great feel, in a choice of pistol grip or oversize grip.
The StrokeLab family consists of the following head shapes: #7, #7S, Marxman, Marxman S, 2-Ball Fang, 2-Ball Fang S, Red Ball, Red Ball S, Tuttle, Tuttle Flow, V-Line, V-Line ang S, V-Line CS, #2, #3; #9, Double Wide and Double Wide Flow.
All models have an RRP of £239 except for the R-Ball and 2-Ball Fang which RRP of £269 and will be available at retail from February 8.
