Odyssey has introduced its product lineup for 2009.
“Odyssey understands putting. It’s a game within a game,” said Chris Walling, director of marketing for Callaway Golf Canada and Odyssey Golf.
“From the White Hot XG Progressive putter, which features some of the most advanced head shapes in golf, to the more traditional tour-inspired Black Series, I am certain all golfers will be able to find the perfect Odyssey putter to take their games to the next level,” he added.
The head on the White Hot XG Progressive putters has high-density wings to position more weight on the outer edges to provide high moment of inertia (MOI) and keep the putter stable during the stroke to increase accuracy, distance control and feel. Each putter features a White Hot XG insert for feedback and soft feel.
Golfers can benefit from custom design elements within the White Hot Tour Line. The weight ports in the sole allow engineers to precisely control the head’s weight to best match a specific shaft length for consistency, control and performance. Each has a new White Hot Tour insert with a firmer feel for responsiveness and feedback.
The precision-milled Odyssey Black Series and Black Series i putters feature traditional styling and multi-material construction that combines with a nickel-plated finish.
The new Crimson Series features various head shapes and Odyssey’s insert technology. Each putter is constructed from Grade 431 stainless and includes the Crimson Stronomic insert for firm feedback and responsiveness.
Introduced earlier this year, Odyssey’s Divine Line was designed specifically for the women’s game, with increased head weights to unite with shorter shaft lengths,
Here’s a look at the individual models available within each line:
