Odyssey Introduces O-Works Putters
CARLSBAD, Calif., January 9, 2017 -- Odyssey Golf
has set the standard for industry leading innovations
for more than 20 years. The latest is Micro-hinge
technology, announced today and featured in the
O-Works putter line.
Microhinge technology consists of two pieces: a 304
stainless steel Hinge Plate backed by a soft
thermoplastic elastomer inner layer. The Hinge Plate
is populated with“microhinges” designed to gently
flex and rebound at impact to impart forward spin.
That helps start the ball rolling immediately,
smoothly and accurately. Odyssey robot tests
indicate that Microhinge technology promotes almost
twice as much forward-spin as Odyssey’s Fusion RX
insert. The Microhinge insert and elastomer inner
layer are co-molded to ensure they fit together
perfectly, which is essential to achieving the
performance and feel targeted by Odyssey
A deliberate, 23-step production process is required
to complete each insert. The Thermoplastic
elastomer inner layer measures 46 on the Shore D
hardness scale, making it softer than the cover of
the average Tour golf ball. That creates a uniquely
soft-and satisfying feel that should appeal to golfers
of all types.
The O-Works lineup consists of four popular Odyssey
blade shapes -- #1, #1W, #2, #9 –and four mallet
shapes #7, #7 Tank, 2-Ball, V-Line Fang CH and R-
Line. Tank versions of the #1 and #7 are also
available.Blades incorporate Odyssey’s new Versa-T
alignment system to further enhance accuracy.
Versa-T combines the alignment benefits of our
Versa line’s contrasting black and white color scheme
with the alignment benefits of our Big T alignment
lines, making it extremely easy to determine
precisely where the face is aimed.
“Tour pros are much better putters than amateur
golfers, partly because Tour pros impart forward-
spin at impact for a smooth, accurate roll,” said
Austie Rollinson, Chief Designer at Odyssey.
“Microhinge technology promotes the kind of Tour-
level forward spin that can immediately help golfers
at any level putt better.”
The new product introduction retail price for each O-
Works model is $229.99. All models are available in
left handed except the #2. Grip options include
SuperStroke Slim 2.0 with CounterCore Technology,
SuperStroke Pistol GT Tour with
CounterCoreTechnology, and SuperStroke Tank.
