|Odyssey Debuts New ProType Line of Premium Milled Putters|
Odyssey's ProType putters will be available in six head shapes, each of which has delivered winning results on professional tours around the world. The putters are made from 1025 Carbon Steel, producing similar performance characteristics to stainless steel, but with a softer feel. The face of each putter features a deeper, sharper milling pattern to increase interaction between the face and the ball for better feel, truer roll and more consistency.
"When we set out to design the ProType putters, we decided on six shapes that were tour-proven—meaning not only have Tour pros used them, but they've won with them," said
Based on insight gleaned through this collaboration with Tour professionals, the Odyssey ProType line features a high polish steel finish and precise craftsmanship that creates an ideal balance to promote a smooth stroke. Tour-tuned weight ports in the sole optimize the putterhead with the shaft length and optimize feel, control and accuracy.
Odyssey's ProType line also offers consumers the opportunity to personalize their putters by choosing from six different paint fills in the putterhead and the same six color options in the Lamkin® 3GEN® Pistol Grip. Made in a thin, smaller pistol shape that appeals to better players, the grip is made of Lamkin's proprietary 3GEN material, which is their softest synthetic rubber compound and reduces vibration without dulling the feel of the putt. This allows golfers to keep their forearms relaxed, apply very light grip pressure and minimize hand tension for smooth, consistent strokes.
"We have been personalizing putters with our after market grips for a while now and the putter is such a personal piece of equipment for golfers, specifically tour players," Rollinson said. "If there's any club in the bag that has a personality it would be the putter; it's the life of the party. Go out on tour and you'll see that no two putters are exactly the same. So we wanted to be able to bring that personalization to consumers, at least in the grip and paint fill."
Odyssey is the #1 Putter across the world's major professional tours in wins, usage and top-10 finishes. The entire ProType line of Odyssey putters will arrive at retail on
