New Odyssey Golf StrokeLab Putters
Odyssey Golf have revealed the latest in putter innovation with their new Odyssey Stroke Lab Putters line for 2019. The Stroke Lab Putters feature the company's innovative new Stroke Lab weight distribution to improve performance dynamics for a more consistent putting stroke.
The Stroke Lab Putter line features an innovative new shaft, weighing 40 grams lighter**, which allows a change in weight distribution providing a completely new approach to putter weighting. This is all possible due to the innovation of a new multi-material shaft design that combines a graphite body with a steel tip to come in a total weight of just 75g, with most of the mass concentrated in the tip. Additionally, this means that weight can be redistributed 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.
Odyssey say this means the feel for the putter-head becomes more acute, helping the golfer repeat the same, smooth stroke time after time. Odyssey studies indicate improvements in the consistency of backswing time, face-angle at impact, ball speed, and ball direction*. We recently caught up with Patrick Dawson, R&D Manager at Callaway Putters & Wedges, to learn more about the technology and innovation within the Stroke Lab.
The Stroke Lab Putters are targeted at any golfer who wants to putt better and the line-up consists of ten shapes - six mallets and four blades - all boasting the 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.”
Multi-material Stroke Lab Shaft for innovative weight distribution
Tip-heavy graphite and steel shaft saves 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 to better control the slightly heavier head.
Sole weights and grip weight for a smooth and accurate stroke
Additional weight in the sole and butt-end of the grip change the putter’s dynamics to help golfers consistently repeat a smoother and more accurate stroke.
White Hot Microhinge Face Insert for a great feel and smooth roll
Combines legendary White Hot feel with dozens of microhinges embedded across the face that promote topspin for smooth roll and acute distance control.
Head Shape: #7, #7S, Marxman, Marxman S, 2-Ball Fang, 2-Ball Fang S, Red Ball, Red Ball S, Tuttle, Tuttle Flow, V-Line, V-Line ang S, V-Line CS, #2, #3; #9, Double Wide and Double Wide Flow.
