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.
