Odyssey O-Works Red and Black Retail Putters


Recommended Posts

FedEx just delivered my Red 7S...and I'm at work...this is one of the more unproductive afternoons of my career :D

 

Any chance you can verify the 10g weights in the red 7s, if you get a chance.

 

Thanks.

Thank you Odyssey. I am in love (not lust) with the 7S Black! 26 putts this morning... and yes, I played all 18 holes :)

 

Perfect balance, perfect feel. It's so good I may just buy the Red 7S as a backup/rotational putter.

Pretty disappointed with this release north of the border. I really don't want to order blindly.

That is lame that you don't have them up North, but these are a pretty safe bet. I waited to see them before placing an order, but they really met and exceed expectations.

Come on. You're a golfer. You must be familiar with risk/reward?

lol yes and I base this on lots of experience. Aka failed experiments.

To me putters are like dating. You go through a lot and no matter how long of a happy relationship you have, there is still no guarantee that she'll be "the one". But like dating, a lot of the fun is in the chase. You'll take lots of risks and probably some regrets along the way but in the end it's all usually worth it.

I am loving the black 7s. Rolling it superb thus far on carpet as that is all I get right now having a newborn at home!

Not sure what I am going to do with my other two O-works #7.

 

Here are a couple of toe shots and address shots...

how about selling them and spending it on your newborn?

 

How about not assuming this guy doesn't have extra money to spend? Who are you to judge this guy because he had a newborn? I happen to have a 5 day old newborn, and just bought a new putter as well. Guess positive life choices let us do these kind of things. You should take note.

 

Oh for goodness sake. Let's try not to be offended by everything.

 

Chances are the guy just noticed from some other post the guy had a newborn and was just kidding around.

 

And people criticize me for using emoticons. :rolleyes: THIS ^^^ is exactly why I DO use them. ;)

 

Haha let's all chill out guys. My vice is golf. My wife isn't alway pleased that I buy some much golf-related stuff, but I told her I could have worse vices like gambling or drinking lol. Luckily my line of work provides for this freedom of golf ho'ing and providing diapers for the new kiddo :) :D

 

The 2 #7 putters on the table have the bend in the shafts ON the table.

 

Only the shaft ABOVE the bend should be on the table to show the balance of the face. I believe those 2 with the shaft over (or is that shaft in ?) hosel ARE face balanced and only the 7s is toe down.

I'll try to take a better picture tomorrow. My uneducated guess is that the two double bend shafts in the original O-works #7 x 2 are face balanced and my black 7s has a bit of toe hang due to the slant neck.

I hadn't really messed around with any of the original o works line, but I spent about 45 minutes with them today. Love the feeling off the face. I did hear a ping with one of them. It may have been the really hard ball on the gg putting area, but I did notice it. I just can't get down with the red one, but I also don't like the setup of the black one.

 

I really like the price point, especially compared to the other putter I am looking at (spider tour). I am going to try and head over to pga ss and find a #3 in 34" tomorrow to try out before I make my decision.

The 7s didn't last long with me. Sold it quick after 1 round. Had a little trouble with the setup but I shouldn't have been surprised as I couldn't play well with the Spider Tour either. The real reason I sold it was the incessant "ting" sound at impact. I rolled a 3T today and it had a much more solid sound. Not sure why and may have just been my putter but I didn't like the sound at all.

What's wrong with gambling and drinking? :) I don't trust anyone with just one vice........

Lots of (early) love for the 7s. And I've gamed a "7" once or twice over the years (but face balanced of course).

 

Seems to be a new thing with the success of the TM Spiders of DJ and JD, toe down mallets.

 

I posted this on the TM Spider thread but got no reaction/input - maybe here since the 7s has, for all intents and purposes, the same neck and the same toe down as the Spiders that are So popular right now.

 

Thoughts ?

 

Most mallet type putters are face balanced and those that aren't are usually only very slightly toe down. These 2 (JD & DJ) have more than slight toe down. I think the extra mass (vs. a toe down blade type) from address to impact may adversely affect the squaring of the club face, even if "only" sub-consciously.

 

I've tried both of these models many times and the less expensive silver model, which IS face balanced, has given me much better results. Considerably better directional control than with these 2.

 

I have the same issues with the 7s as I do with the Spiders. Some days I'll putt "lights out" in the store but others days I can't make a thing. And while, of course, some days we all putt better than others, I see much less variation with other putters (and types).

I keep wanting to ask people's opinions on the recent spike in popularity for flow neck putters. Until last year you rarely saw any at all in players bags. It made me wonder if it's actually hurting more people than it's helping since it's really intended to fit a certain type of stroke. Then I remembered that technically every neck type is meant for a certain type of stroke to some extent. I guess the same point could be made for any putter style that a player hasn't been specifically fit to.

Spike in popularity is the same as always - so many pros are playing them. Doesn't take much to get people to say "Maybe *I* should play that putter (driver, irons, etc.)".

 

And while strokes and putters should(?) match, everybody plays what works for THEM.

 

Look at Phil. SBST and he plays a toe (straight) down putter.

 

Personally, while I try to go SBST, for a mallet I use face balanced. When I try to play a blade type putter I seldom use a face balanced putter; slight toe down seems to suit me better with a blade type. :dntknw:

Yeah that's where I got in my own head too. If it works, it works.

Anyone know the hosel diameter on the 7s? I'd love to pull the stock shaft and install a KBS Black Chrome (same shaft as spiders) as it is more similar to the color of the head. I wish Odyssey would have used "smoke black" shafts since the head is more of a gunmetal color than black

 

Are you talking about the KBS Black Nickel shafts? They really aren't much different from the shaft that comes in the O-works black. If you wanted less contrast you'd need a matte finish on the shaft. It's the shiny shaft that really brings out the contrast in the head in my opinion. I also had a KBS black nickel in a putter before and they wear really easily and look trashy pretty quick. I'm hoping this odyssey shaft holds up better.

 

Just realized the 7s does come with a matte black shaft? I was basing my info off my 2W which has a stepped, glossy black shaft.

 

All the new black Odysseys, at least in the PGATSS near me have shiny black shafts. No matte black shafts.

That's what I thought too but there was one of the BST yesterday that definitely had a matte black mom stepped shaft. The listing said it was all stock but didn't mention if he ordered that shaft specifically. Since then (and my post) I've seen more pics that clearly have the glossy shaft. I can't keep up. *throws hands up*

I ordered both the Black 7s and 330M to decide between and, as much as i wanted to like it, the 7s has been returned to Odyssey. I wasnt a fan of the shape, neck, or weight/balance of the 7s. I played the Spider for a few months this year and much prefer the shape of the Spider over the 7s. The Spider neck has a more "heel flow" as opposed to the almost 90* neck of the 7s - The shaft of the 7s just kind of disappears, rather than flowing into the head.

 

I still love the Spider shape, but the insert was very inconsistent from outside 10-15 feet.

 

That said... The 330M is awesome (replaced my Versa 330M)!!! The new shape with the more rounded bumpers and the single line on the flange is perfect. The face feels almost identical to the Versa (White Hot Pro) insert with noticeably more forward roll from the microhinge tech.

 

Gotta give Odyssey props on these Red and Black OWorks... They listened to the market, gave the people what they wanted, and priced the putters (which they knew would sell) very reasonably compared to the market! Now let's start turning out some more of those limited run headcovers!!

FedEx just delivered my Red 7S...and I'm at work...this is one of the more unproductive afternoons of my career :D

 

Any chance you can verify the 10g weights in the red 7s, if you get a chance.

 

Thanks.

 

Sorry I missed this. Will give it a look tonight and let you know. If you've got any other questions about it, fire away and I'll tell y'all what I know...

My 7S came in today. It definitely feels lighter than the advertised 350g. I am probably going to throw a Ping PP60 on it, which is about 15g lighter than the Winn midsize.

 

As for the 'ting' others have mentioned, I hear it, but only on mishits. Center strikes are solid and muted.
