With the popularization of slant neck mallets on tour, why is it that more short slant hosel putters don't make it to retail models? What is the main influence in deciding which models to bring to retail? The reason is that I would love to be able to get a black (or red) O-works 2ball V-line with a slant neck.

 

Is there a plan for an Odyssey Custom Shop in the same vein as the Toulon Garage?

 

Thanks!

More of a general question than a technical one.

 

Which grip style do you guys prefer, conventional, cross hand, claw, arm lock??

What lead to the design of the Microhinge technology?

 

Also, are there any plans for another line of milled face putters from Odyssey? The ProType line was great followed by the Metal X Milled line, which was also nice. What is in the works for milled face designs?

Any thoughts of making a 2-Ball O-Works model in the V-Line shape? Interested in the finish on the Black putter vs the Red putter. The bottom of the Red is the same as the current O-Works lineup and the Black seems to be different altogether. Is it a different finish? Will there be weight kits and if so, when? Many want to bump up the weight of these putters and make a "Tank" version out of them. Thanks.

Did you release of the red and black slant neck putters in direct response to the popularity of the TaylorMade spider slants? Will you be offering any additional colors?

 

(My #7s in red arrived today! woo hoo!)

 

 

Also, why do the mallet head covers fit so poorly? I've had mine fall off 3 times now, in 2 rounds of play. The cover is too large for the 7s head, and the magnets too small to firmly hold the cover closed. I know one day I'll lose the cover due to these issues.

With the explosion of social media, how does the company view social media as an avenue for reaching certain audiences? Is social media viewed different for the Toulon line of putters?

Have you found that colors have an affect on a golfers' ability to line up and or get the ball started on the intended line better? I ask this because red putters seem to be all the rage these days and I'm wondering if your foray into red putters is a result of real benefits borne out in testing or just a cosmetic choice to satisfy the desires of the public?

You all are doing some amazing things lately. The release of the 7s was great to finally see one hit retail. I am guessing the sales will show it.

 

What, if anything have you learned in the short time of "The Garage", that may possibly influence #TheCustomShop"

 

Oh, and thank you..... :drinks:

I have almost always putted with a milled putter (Odyssey ProType #6) instead of a putter with an insert. Please explain what advantages I could expect to gain if I changed to one of your new O-Works putters with the Microhinge Insert Technology. What really makes the Microhinge Insert special?

So many professional players rely on putters without any form of face technology - is there a tangible/measurable benefit to getting the ball rolling sooner with face technology?

 

Thanks for doing this Odyssey and WRX - really excited to try out the latest O-Works models.

Have you started taking parts of Toulon putter technology and mixing it into Odyssey putters and vice versa (head shape, weighting, etc.)? Toulon putters have their signature face milling, will there be other options later down the road in the garage for different ones or have you continued testing different styles?

 

Thanks all and still loving the putter you helped re-finish Austie.

Are there any differences between the red and black 7s besides color and alignment aids?

Only questions I have are these.

 

 

Odyssey Custom Shop

 

What are going to be the head, neck, and finish options?

 

When will it be up and running?

 

What price range am I looking at?

 

How long will order times take?

 

Will we be able to choose from any cool headcovers?

How much research is done comparing sight line vs. none at all? I honestly have never putted better since going with a putter that has zero alignment markings. I would love to try some of the new Odyssey tech but don't see much w/o lines or dots. Can I order one that way...or is it spitting into the wind in your opinion?

I am using an Oworks two ball.....my fourth two ball. A playing companion and a devoted Odyssey user told me the best set up for the Oworks micro hinge technology is to be certain that at address at least 30 percent of the face should be visible when addressing the ball. Is this true? If so why does it matter?
