The Odyssey Tank range has been extended and the inclusion of the Tank 2-Ball makes the world's best selling putter even more popular.

Tank technology uses Counterbalance Weight Stability which gives you a heavier than standard head with a heavier shaft to keep your hands quieter through your putting stroke. That is the minor benefit of extra weight, the main reason the Tank has proved so popular has been because the extra weight provides an extremely high MOI for more stability through the impact zone for a more consistent pendulum stroke.

Testing the 36" version, for example, the total club MOI is 34% higher than a standard putter and a 19% increase in total club weight.

Looks: Hard to fault when you consider the 2-Ball head design has accumulated more than 245 wins, 16 major titles and more than 5.5 million satisfied customers. Very easy to align with confidence on the short putts.

Feel: I favoured the Counterbalance Stability Weighting as the headweight felt very stable and contributed to good accuracy throughout testing from all range of putts. Sound and feel off the face, utilising the world famous White Hot insert, was the strongest I've experienced from a putter this season.

Performance: Very strong performer. Stable feel and lovely 'pop' sensation off the face contributed to lots of balls going under. The greater MOI on offer here provided me with more stability through impact and helped engage more of pendulum stroke, preventing those wrists from breaking down.

Verdict: One of the strongest mallets out there, as you'd expect from a new Odyssey putter. The 2-Ball design always ticks the right boxes, as too, the White Hot insert when it comes to feel. Head weight felt just right and almost impossible to pull or push a putt from close range. Hard to fault and terrific value for money at £130.
