Odyssey has made a name for itself with putters the past couple of decades through the development of new technologies, from the White Hot insert that was designed to improve roll and feel to the 2-Ball and Versa flat sticks that were made to make it easier to line up putts. Now come the new O-Works offerings and something called Microhinge.
Microhinge is a face insert technology that consists of two pieces. One is a 304 stainless steel hinge plate, and it is co-molded to a soft, thermoplastic elastomer inner layer that is populated with “microhinges” that gently flex and rebound at impact so that golfers can produce forward spin on their putts – and achieve a more stable, pure and
controlled roll to the hole.
“Tour pros are much better putters than amateur golfers, partly because tour professionals impart forward spin at impact,” says Austie Rollinson, Odyssey’s chief designer. “Microhinge technology promotes the kind of tour-level forward spin that can immediately help golfers at any level.”
The O-Works putters are available in several head shapes, including blades (#1, #1 Wide, #2 and #9) and mallets (#7, 2-ball, V-Line Face CH and R-Line). A Tank counterbalanced version is offered in both blade (#1) and mallets.
