What Oddysey say about the Versa:

"Alignment is one of the most essential variables in putting, yet it's often overlooked. On a tenfoot putt, one degree offline is the difference between a make and a miss. Many of the best putting minds in the game have told us how critical Versa is to performance, including Tour Pros and world-renowned instructor Phil Kenyon. They know this technology works, and they've strongly encouraged us to bring this design to golfers in a reimagined profile.
"We took their feedback to heart, now our patented Versa alignment is back and better than ever. This high contrast alignment technology highlights the proper face angle from address to impact, allowing you to align the putter throughout your stroke. The black and white contrast lets your eyes key in on the linear designs while highlighting face angle, for a design that can benefit any level of player. The lineup features a blend of blades and mallets with our famous White Hot insert and game-changing Stroke Lab shaft."

Features and benefits...

Versa Alignment

This proven, major winning Versa technology has dominated on Tours all over the world. The black and white high contrast alignment system helps golfers with their alignment at address and through your stroke. It highlights the proper face angle and improving concentration, so you make more putts.

White Hot Insert

The original White Hot formulation creates incredible feel, sound, and performance in one exceptional two-part urethane insert. Versa and the iconic White Hot insert are long time favorites of tour players and golfers alike. They’ve been asking for us to bring these technologies back and we’ve listened.

Red Stroke Lab Shaft

The newest generation of our proven multi-material Stroke Lab shaft features even better performance. By shortening the steel section, we reduced the weight by seven grams. We also made it stiffer and more stable for even more consistency in your stroke and your performance

What Odyssey say about the Tri-Hot 5K...

"We developed Tri-Hot 5K with an audacious goal, to create a new putter construction for a complete shift in performance. Focusing on blade designs, we've moved the CG positioning forward and leveraged new materials in ways that have never been realized in a putter. Stainless steel, tungsten, and 6061 aircraft
"For our next goal, we wanted to achieve that same goal with mallets. Using our proven Tri-Hot formula, we've significantly raised the head's inertia while also moving the CG forward.
"The result is a more forgiving and better performing mallet. By applying large amounts of tungsten, we've developed an inertia level exceeding 5000 IZZ for incredible forgiveness, all while moving the CG closer to the face.
"This combination promotes improved performance in speed control, spin control, speed consistency on off-centre hits and a much tighter downrange dispersion versus conventional blades. We’ve changed how a putter is constructed and reinvented how a putter can perform."

Features and benefits...

High Performance and Tight Dispersion from Stainless Steel Front

Built to improve performance by reducing the amount of side spin on off-center hits, resulting in putts that are closer to the original line, with tighter dispersion, and a greater chance to go in on less-than-perfect strikes. We achieve this through a 303 stainless steel front section that includes the hosel and face area. The back section of these putters has been finish milled to exact shape and weight, helping to keep the CG forward.

Improved Forgiveness and Improved Roll From Tungsten Front Weights

We've precisely positioned massive amounts of tungsten (up to 120 grams) behind the face in the toe and heel sections of the club head. The CG is moved forward for improved roll, while also increasing inertia to over 5,000 IZZ. It’s an improved level of performance that’s now available in new standard size mallets.

Interchangeable Front Weights

Available in 5, 10, 15 and 20 grams these removable weights allow you to dial in your head weight to your exact preference.

Legendary White Hot insert

The most popular insert of all time is back with the original formulation, feel, sound, and performance.

Red Stroke Lab Shaft

The newest generation of our proven multi-material Stroke Lab shaft features even better performance. Our Stroke Lab shafts are a staple in professional golf with wins across all global Tours.
