A New Way To Roll

Odyssey Golf in­tro­duces the new O-Works put­ter line with Mi­cro-hinge tech­nol­ogy

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GEARGUIDE -

Odyssey Golf has set the stan­dard for in­dus­try-lead­ing in­no­va­tions and the lat­est is Mi­cro-hinge tech­nol­ogy fea­tured in the new O-Works put­ter line. Mi­cro-hinge 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 “mi­cro-hinges” 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 Mi­cro-hinge tech­nol­ogy pro­motes al­most twice as much forward-spin as Odyssey’s Fu­sion RX insert.

The Mi­cro-hinge insert and elas­tomer in­ner layer are co-moulded to en­sure they fit to­gether per­fectly, which is essen­tial to achiev­ing the per­for­mance and feel tar­geted by Odyssey en­gi­neers. 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 line-up 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 Call­away's Versa line’s con­trast­ing black and white colour scheme with the align­ment ben­e­fits of

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. “Mi­cro-hinge tech­nol­ogy pro­motes the kind of Tour-level forward-spin that can im­me­di­ately help golfers at any level putt bet­ter.”

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 Coun­terCore Tech­nol­ogy, and Su­perStroke Tank.
