Odyssey Putters #1 Putter in Golf

The #1 Putter in Golf

Odyssey putters are now in a The Pro Shot Golf Club. We take a look at the latest technology and what makes their new range of Stroke Lab Putters so popular.

"A Stroke of Genius"

StrokeLab is about challenging common, well-established putter norms with innovative ideas that promote better performance. The new StrokeLab line of putters incorporates a unique new method of weight distribution designed to improve the physical dynamics of the stroke.

Most golfers’ putting strokes are inconsistent. Yet most putting technologies focus on improving alignment or improving the quality of roll. They attempt to mask a given stroke’s weaknesses instead of improving those weaknesses. Odyssey’s new StrokeLab putter line helps improve the stroke through a profound change in weight distribution made possible by an innovative new shaft*. This is a completely new approach to putter weighting, and only Odyssey has it.

The StrokeLab shaft is a full 40 grams lighter**, made possible by an innovative 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. We’ve 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.

The effect of StrokeLab’s innovative weight distribution on the stroke is dramatic. Odyssey studies indicate improvements in the consistency of backswing time, face-angle 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.

StrokeLab putters are targeted at any golfer who wants to putt better (that’s everyone). The Stroke Lab line-up consists of 10 great shapes — six mallets and four blades – all with our newest White Hot Microhinge insert for smooth roll and great feel, in a choice of pistol grip or oversize grip.

“You feel the difference immediately,” said Luke Williams, senior director of putter marketing. “The putterhead moves freely, smoothly and on a sound path, helping you roll the ball accurately while giving you greater speed-control.”

“These new putters epitomize what StrokeLab is all about,” said Sean Toulon, senior vice president and general manager of Odyssey. “Questioning the norm for the purpose of developing putters that perform substantially better to help golfers make more putts.”

Features & Benefits

Multi-material Strokelab Shaft for innovative weight distribution

Tip-heavy graphite shafts and steel shafts save 40 grams that's relocated into each end of the putter to change performance dynamics .

 

Slightly stiffer and lower torque for increased control

The stroke lab shaft is slightly stiffer and lower torque compared to standard putter shafts for better control within the head . 

 

Sole weights and grip weight for smooth and accurate stroke

Additional weight in the sole and butt-end of the grip and change the putter's dynamics to help golfers consistently repeat a smoother and more accurate stroke . 

 

White hot micro hinge Face insert for a great feel and smooth roll

Combine legendary white hot feel with dozens of micro hinges embedded across the face that promote top spin for smooth role and acute distance control .
