ODYSSEY O-WORKS R-LINE

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

www.odyssey­golf.com Head­weight: 350g

Grip: Su­perStroke Pis­tol GT Tour or Su­perStroke Slim 2.0 (Counter Core)

Toe hang: Face Bal­anced

TECH: Fin­ger-shaped grips on the stain­less steel face plate com­bine with a ther­mo­plas­tic elas­tomer feel layer to grab and in­ter­act with the cover at im­pact, lift­ing the ball into a bet­ter roll.

WE SAY: On the surface the R-Line looks like just an­other Odyssey mal­let. But we think its at­ten­tion to de­tail and over­all tech pack­age war­rants more than just a sec­ond look. Yes, Odyssey has made the R-Line’s shape be­fore, but the O-Works has so much more to bring to the party than just a new in­sert. The up­dated Versa (black, white, black) cos­met­ics are per­fectly en­hanced with a single red align­ment stripe, which some might think wouldn’t work – but it re­ally does. And like we said in the blade, that in­sert feels fan­tas­tic and rolls putts bet­ter than any Odyssey put­ter be­fore.

VER­DICT: A sim­ple face­bal­anced mid to large­headed mal­let which is well suited to straight-backand-through strokes. Feel from the face wasn’t the soft­est or firmest, but feed­back is muted.
