Odyssey ‘Inserts’ Technology Update

Prolific may be the best way to describe the putter makers at Odyssey Golf, as they continue to roll out bold new models and build on a franchise that recorded 37 wins across the major professional golf tours last year. Start with its new line of White Hot Pro putters. “We took our most popular insert on Tour and engineered it for better overall performance and consistency,” says Austie Rollinson, principal designer at Odyssey Golf, adding that the equipment maker does that mostly through the employment of a new laser-milling process. That allows Odyssey to achieve extremely tight tolerance, he asserts, and to better match insert shapes to the various White Hot Pro head shapes. According to Rollinson, a full line of White Hot Pro putter styles is available in various head shapes, including the #1, #7, #5, #2 Center Shaft, #9, 2-Ball, D.A.R.T. and Rossie. In addition, Odyssey is introducing a couple of new head shapes for 2013, one of which is a high MOI (for Moment of Inertia) mallet and a smaller version of the D.A.R.T., called D.A.R.T. Mini. The putters all feature a Gun Metal PVD finish.
