We were impressed when we got our hands on Callaway's Odyssey O-Works '17 putters with its innovative Microhinge face insert.
Following extensive feedback from its Tour staffers Odyssey has now developed a red finish for players who asked for a clean and simple look at address.
Dr. Alan Hocknell, Senior Vice President of Research and Development, Callaway Golf, explains:
The head colour has been generating a lot of interest on Tour this season, and a number of our players asked to test prototypes combining our Microhinge Insert Technology with a red finish. We know that if the best players like something and putt well with it, real golfers are definitely going to like it, too.
Callaway say they've reached an unprecedented level of performance with Microhinge technology that gets the ball into a better roll at impact.
This is relevant to both pros and amateurs alike with Phil Mickelson putting the new face into play at the 2016 Ryder Cup. The Microhinges provides incredible gains in topspin and roll at impact regardless of your stroke with the stainless steel Microhinge plate is co-moulded into our Thermoplastic Elastomer Feel Layer.
As well as the new red looks the latest release of the O-Works putters include an new short slant neck version of the #7 that gives the #&S more to hang, a setup that has proven popular with the pros. The other O-Works Red head shapes are the 2-Ball, #7, R-Line, V-Line Fang.
