VERDICT In its quest for improved feel, Odyssey uses an extensive manufacturing process to mould the face’s stainless-steel mesh cover over an elastomer middle layer. Steps include chemically etching stainless-steel mesh, co-moulding steel and elastomer insert pieces that cool at different rates, and four rounds of quality-control inspections. The microscopic “hinges” across the face get the ball rolling forward sooner for better distance control regardless of swing path.
COMMENTS (L) It has that muffled sound that’s amazing. It’s consistent across the board. (M) Has a huge sweet spot – consistency for days. (H) Love this putter. It’s like putting with a down pillow in my hands.
