Odyssey Microhinge - O-Works vs EXO

NorthMNgolferNorthMNgolfer ClubWRX Posts: 301 ✭✭
Can anyone confirm that the insert in the EXO line is firmer then the O-works lineup? I know they are both a Microhinge insert but I can;t seem to find anything direct from Odyssey that says one is firmer or softer then the other.

    To me the EXO insert felt softer (less sound/feedback).

    I got fit for the EXO Seven S the other day at Cub Champion - I LOVE how it feels, very soft and the ball just rolls so perfectly. The putter looks weird, but I can't beat the performance. It seems like everything I looked at went in.

    I agree. EXO feels a just a bit softer to me than the microhinge.

    Funny, I’m like exactly the OPPOSITE. I thought the EXP felt firmer. Love the subjectivity!

    The EXO insert is softer than the O-Works line.

    The EXO insert is ever so slightly firmer than the White Hot insert and the MicroHinge.

    EXO insert IMO way way better than microhinge
  • TightStickTightStick Members Posts: 292 ✭✭
    Tried the EXO for the first time - wow! Can say I was really impressed. Much better than Microhinge. To be honest couldn’t really tell if it’s softer or just feels that much better
  • NorthMNgolferNorthMNgolfer ClubWRX Posts: 301 ✭✭
    To start for those that don't know or understand. BOTH the EXO and the O-Works line have a Microhinge type insert in them. It's just the Polymer around the Microhinge is different between the two lines. But from reading the responses it sounds like they may be closer to each other in firmness then I expected since the answers about which is softer seems to very with the responses.

    I had the #7 in the O-Works line and now have the Rossie in the EXO line. In my opinion, the EXO microhinge with the white insert is significantly more quiet / softer (which I prefer) than the O-Works.

    I too feel like the EXO line is noticeably firmer. It was the very first thing I noticed when I rolled one and I have to admit that I like the feel a lot.

    Had O-Works red 7s and went to Exo 7s. Exo felt a lot softer and I am back to my red. Just like the smaller head shape and firmer feel of the O-Works

    So my theory is both. The smaller hinges are going to be softer but the base around them is firmer. On the exo the hinges are firmer but the base is softer. So the exo will be firmer on short putts when the hinges do more work but softer on long putts when the base insert become more compressed.

    To me the o-works feels mushy off the face where as the exo still feels soft but solid. I much prefer the feel of the new exo in my 7s.

    That's an interesting take on it.

    I prefer the exo feel, maybe it’s the milled lines in that help with the sound? But chalk another one for exo feeling softer too.

    Read this thread. Rolled microhinge and EXO back to back a few times tonight. I really do not see how anyone could think EXO is softer. Definitely firmer, easy to tell. And I have to say, it really feels nice. I like it a lot.



    That said, the Jailbird Mini I tried with microhinge also felt nice. The two feel different and certainly more pop off the EXO face and more feedback. I did find myself longing for a Jailbird Mini slant neck with an EXO face. That would be my choice but I would not rule out a microhinge. It does work at rolling the ball well.

    I thought that was in reference to the 2 Ball, which is a different construction. I may be wrong. It’s a different color insert.

    I went back to the o works but it was more about size of the head than the insert. Exo 7 just seems huge
