Odyssey O-Works 7s vs 7

In reading the discussion about the new Red or Black Odyssey 7 and 7s models it appears that most of the players here have chosen the 7s model. However, I've made the decision to go with the 7 because the Odyssey website says it's face balanced and for a player with straight back , straight through putting stroke. It's offset is also full shaft vs slant neck hosel. My local shop doesn't have a 7s in stock so I haven't had a chance to compare with the two models. I just wondered why all the love for the 7s vs the 7 and could I possibly be missing some other noticeable differences between the two.

    It really depends on the player. If you've got a straight back straight through stroke then the 7 suits you well. I would say that 7s is extremely popular because many putters like myself like the moi of a mallet (7), but need some toe balance like a blade (7s). Personally, I have an in to out arc which is why face balanced does not work for me. Looks like you made the right decision.

    Exactly what I was told when I was getting fit at the ECPC last week. The 7s is for the player who wants a mallet but doesn't need the face balance aspect of one.

    Firing this older conversation back up as I've done some reading on offset for the putter based on your eye dominance. I am right handed and right eye dominate. What I've read is that the best suited putters for this setup is double bend shaft or a full offset (generally plumbers neck). I have a Odyssey 7s and I'm trying to determine if this is full offset or is this more of 3/4 offset?

    Odyssey lists it as 3/4 shaft on their website.

    Thanks. Can you or anyone elaborate to me how much if anything I'm at a disadvantage because of eye dominance to be using a 3/4 offset versus full offset? Other than the obvious 25% :smiley:
