Back In Black

Black has been a big color in golf in recent
years, and the new ProType putters from
Odyssey are riding that fashion wave with their
latest line of premium putters. Start with the
clubheads, which are made of 1025 carbon
steel and boast a midnight black PVD finish.
The steel shafts have what company officials
call a “black powder coat” and the seamless
grips come in that same hue.
Visually, Odyssey technicians aver that
the ProType Black putters have a distinctive,
stealthy look. But they are quick to add
that they devoted as much of their energies
toward function with these products as form.
The milled putter heads, which come in three
shapes, are designed to provide the ultimate
in feel and sound, they say, and the face of
each has a deep, sharp milling pattern made
to increase interaction with the ball, for a truer
roll and increased consistency.
“These may be the coolest, most premium
designs we’ve ever developed,” says Austie
Rollinson, Odyssey’s principal designer. “The
ProType Black line is born from feedback
given by the world’s best players, which
yielded features such as thinner top lines and
thicker faces. And the forged-milled 1025
carbon steel offers a uniquely soft feel as well
as crisp feedback.”
Available mid-October, the ProType Black
line includes three models, No. 2, No. 9 and
the 2-Ball.
