ODYSSEY OWORKS

Golf Asia - - GOLFING GEARGUIDE -

FACE MA­TE­RIAL: A stain­less steel Mi­cro­hinge plate is moulded into a ther­mo­plas­tic elas­tomer layer.

MOD­ELS WITH THIS TECH: All 28 Odyssey Oworks mod­els.

WHAT ODYSSEY SAYS: Mi­cro­hinge fingers lift putts into a bet­ter roll, with gains in top­spin re­gard­less of your stroke. A ther­mo­plas­tic elas­tomer feel layer gen­er­ates great feel and feed­back.

HOW IT PER­FORMED: We tested the Oworks in­sert in our “which put­ter rolls the best” test last year, so we know it’s top draw when it comes to roll. It’s a com­plex de­sign to cre­ate and the de­sign team’s hard work has def­i­nitely paid off – the Oworks cre­ated more top­spin (122rpm) than any other model we tested. If there’s one thing we’ve learnt since test­ing put­ters on a launch mon­i­tor though it’s how you need a com­bi­na­tion of fac­tors to im­prove roll – more top­spin alone doesn’t sim­ply equate to bet­ter roll. So whilst top­spin was great, putts skid­ded fur­ther than our test av­er­age, yet both testers thought the feel, sound, feed­back and roll (to the hu­man eye) were ex­cel­lent.
