Odyssey Golf introduce new Versa range
Odyssey Golf, and the brand that compiled the most putter wins across all professional tours last season, today announced the January 25 launch of the new Versa line of putters. Odyssey introduces a visionary High Contrast Alignment system with Versa. Versa putters feature stark black and white contrast laterally on the putter head, which accentuates the face angle at address, through the stroke and at impact.
This contrast aims to prompt golfers to better align putts and improve their chances of holing out in the 10 – 15 foot scoring zone. This is critical as just one-degree off line can cause a golfer to miss a 12-foot putt. The design also promotes concentration during the putter stroke and helps maintain consistency at impact.
Alignment features are traditionally applied to mallet and progressive style putters. However, Versa provides a high contrast functional alignment aid to a conventional style putter. “We set out to design a distinctive and highly effective alignment system for a blade putter,” said Austie Rollinson, Principal Designer, Odyssey Golf. “The human visual system is both sensitive to contrast and very good at complex tasks such as edge detection. We utilised both of these skills to create a very effective alignment aid that helps golfers putt more consistently, and sink more putts, too.”
Additionally, the Versa line of putters debuts an improved White Hot insert, a perennially popular insert among the world’s best professional golfers. The new insert has been meticulously engineered by Odyssey for more consistent sound, feel and performance across the striking surface. A new laser milling cutting process allows Odyssey to achieve extremely tight tolerances and to better match insert shapes to the 343 gram head shapes, resulting in more consistency and better performance for golfers. (The Odyssey 2-Ball® head weighs 355 grams.) Each insert has been designed and cut specifically for each putter model.
The Versa line is offered in a variety of Tour-proven head shapes, from the brand’s progressive style and mallet putters to conventional blade style putters. The #1, #2, #7 and #9 models are available in black/white/black and white/black/white combinations. The #7 90 models are also available in both colour options, but feature a front-to-back alignment visual. The 2-Ball model, Odyssey’s best-selling putter of all time, is available in one colour option: white/black/white. All models are available with a 33”, 34” or 35” shaft, as well as a host of custom options.
