best 2-ball version (to all 2-ball owners or previous owners)


Recommended Posts

Looking for some help guys. Ive never gamed an Odyssey putter; im contemplating building an armlock 2-ball.. I'm looking for what you guys think is the best iteration/model/version you think is the best. Im guessing it all comes down to the insert. I tried the OG White Hot model that just came out. Its not bad. But i feel like i should take advantage of some the modern inserts; if theres even an advantage.

 

Not even sure why im asking this question as it would ultimately be dependent on me but I guess I'm curious, and I'd like to see if there is a runaway consensus of the best Odyssey insert.

White Hot 2 ball blade all day long with plumbers neck

I had a DFX when I was younger and loved the firmer feel of that insert. That was my favorite Odyssey insert of all time.

Personally, I wouldn't go older than 2017. For 2 ball putters, I fell in love with the new Triple Track 2 Ball 10, the original 2 ball design is still great too. I was never a fan of the original white insert, too soft and not durable. The 2017 microhinge on my O-Works #7 is great, the new Microhinge Star Insert is much better than the old white faces.

 

If you can find a 2017 or newer 2 ball that would be fine, if money isn't a problem, I would buy the new Odyssey Triple Track 2 ball 10.

 

That's my 2 cents. Older faces not as good, 2017 face is great, 2019/20/21 Microhinge Star is great.

The new 2 ball TEN is the best.  It combines the stability of the spider with the alignment aids of the 2 ball.  The new microhinge star is the best version of microhinge yet.  Only thing that would beat it is if they did the 2 ball TEN in the OG white hot, which is tour only right now

My favorite looking 2 ball of all time was the versa tank. Alignment was great on this version but the paint not so much.

I am new to the two ball “family.” I tried the two ball ten tour lines at the store and loved the alignment and feel. I played two rounds with it so far and I would have to say I really like it- as others have said, it’s pretty fool proof alignment wise. I think it also looks great with the black paint job - it doesn’t look like a saucer pan. And of course the microhinge insert, stroke lab shaft and massive moi is nice too.

My favorite is either the versa or MXM.  But the original white hot tour lined and filled 2 ball is still epic.

If you're building an armlock, you are going to want a much heavier head with much more loft than any standard 2-Ball. I'd simply just buy an off the rack armlock if I where you.

 

Im not fully committed to armlock yet. And im loving this Grip right here. It a $23 experiment. Apparently i wont have to do much to the putter head at all. And im loving the 2-ball lately after having played with one couple weeks ago. If the armlock fails i can always remove the grip and still play my 2-ball. Hopefull the AL2 grip will let me get a feel of how things are going to be.

Original White Hot Tour Lined and filled. Close runner up is a tour filled 2 Ball DFX with the firmer insert.

Having owned quite a few, the original Tour fill and lined was very nice as was the Versa Tank, but I think the new OG is better than the original, it's a great update.

Protype Black was a sharp looker but I prefer an insert. Black series was also good. Didn't like the microhinge version.

It's been my latest favorite even though I have the prior iteration. Didn't realize the subtle arc I had in my stroke until I grabbed this bad boy. Best hybrid blade/mallet IMO.

Got a 2 Ball Triple Track this year & I’m putting better than I ever have. I’m not a putter “aficionado”, coming from a White Hot Pro V-Line, but am really liking the 2 Ball TT. Great alignment & feel. Plus you can find one like new on Calloway Used or even Amazon for a hundred bucks or so under retail.

 

Exactly this. I have the v-line center shaft too and while I like both the 2-ball blade has been a lot of fun to putt with. Cally Used is a dangerous place to hang.
