ODYSSEY O-WORKS R-LINE
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.
