Odyssey launches new and improved Toulon Garage website

Published

on

Toulon Garage — a website that previously allowed golfers to fully personalize three of Toulon Design’s putter models — is back and the personalization options are more vast than ever. Callaway, an umbrella company that acquired putter-boutique Toulon Design in 2016, has revamped the website and design system to give golfers greater control over the looks of their putter.

During the 12-step process that mimics Tour-level personalization, golfers can dial in head shape, hosel type, finish, head weight, stamping, paint fill, shaft and grip, among other options.

Putter models available in the system now include Toulon Design’s Long Island, Columbus, Austin, Indianapolis, Madison, San Diego, Memphis, Latrobe, San Francisco and Rochester. Each of the putter heads can also be made into a counterbalance design with two different SuperStroke CounterCore grip options; 25 or 50 grams. Sole plates — each of which are CNC-milled — can be interchanged between a 7-gram aluminum plate, a 20-gram stainless steel plate, and a 40-gram tungsten weight.

All of the Toulon Garage putters are milled from blocks of 303 stainless steel and have diamond-cut designs in the face for a better sound and feel.

Toulon’s Garage putters are currently available for purchase at odysseygolf.com/toulongarage and will start at $499 for the Satin and Tour Mist finish, $549 for the Black Pearl finish, and $599 for the Rose Gold finish. Orders come packaged in a specially-designed box and come with a certificate of authenticity that’s “laser-etched onto a piece of high-grade aluminum,” according to Odyssey.

    You can almost smell the meeting on this one:

    “Scotty Cameron sells re-branded Ping Ansers for 300 a pop, there must be a way we can sell our 129.99 odyssey putters for 250+?”

    “I’ve got it, buy an un-established premium brand name and apply it to our standard putters and add in some finishing options”

    “I think we’ve earned ourselves a drink, fellas”

    The website is complete garbage. How that happens in 2017 I have no idea. It’s incredibly RAM hungry trying to pull through the Auto CAD drawings for every single stage. Mobile viewing is a total bust and my Macbook Pro is struggling. First time that’s ever happened. Total SHANK.

    Site is an Epic Fail. Could of been cool and I

    That website needs a serious makeover. My iPhone 7+ got hot viewing it!!!

    And the company needs to rethink their strategy. Options are ridiculous. Seriously options are so expensive it’s just stupid. Get real. Hopefully Toulon fails and they can just make regular odyssey putters and focus on those. This is a fail IMO.

    Such a terrible site! I’m on a 100mbs fibre connection and using a fully specced out touch bar MacBook Pro and it’s pretty much completely maxed the computer out!

    The logo is horrible, the head designs are standard, and the tech is cosmetic at best. Add to that an exorbitant cost for limited options from a putter maker with zero name recognition (no one cares that he started Zevo Golf). All the hype on this site when he started his own company is laughable now. At least he had the sense to know he wouldn’t get far on his own and that selling out to Callaway was a no-brainer.

    Well, I’d like to go through the process but the website is a disaster. So slow in loading that I was unable, on 3 attempts, to get past selection of head choice. Won’t bother with that again. Huge error in launching when the site cannot function as intended. Done with that. How can a company pride itself in its technology when it can’t get its website to function with any degree of the technical prowess the product is supposed to possess?

    Nothing more than when this was first mentioned, woohoo, another over priced milled putter company… Far cooler option out there.

    So, as of 7/6/17, only two head options (Indy / Madison) available for lefties. . . Very disappointing. Hopefully, this gets corrected.

    Much too little, much too late. Also, the optimization of the site is horrid.

    Whoever designed that site needs to optimize it for mobile viewing.

    It’s a veritable nightmare on my iPhone

The hottest blade irons in golf right now

Published

on

As we’ve written before, the decision to put a new driver in the bag is usually obvious. Better numbers at testing, perceptibly longer distance, and as long as your bank account allows, you have your new gamer.

The iron switch, however, is a trickier beast. Comfort with the variety of shots one needs to hit is key. Confidence from one’s long irons through the higher lofts is critical. Thus, even the greatest enthusiasm for a new iron release isn’t always followed by a mass exodus to gaming said irons. This is doubly true at the professional level, where the tools are critical to a player’s livelihood.

That said, the combination of forum chatter, GolfWRX member enthusiasm, and what we’re spotting in our WITB photos from tour stops are a reliable indicator of the hottest irons in the game.

And judging by the response to our recent Instagram post, we’re confident that these four models are the hottest blade irons in golf right now.

Callaway Apex MB

Buzz built steadily for the Apex MB iron when we first spotted them in Tour players’ bags at the beginning of 2017. The irons are the product of direct feedback from the company’s Tour staffers, according to Luke Williams, Director of Product and Brand Management at Callaway. Forged from 1025 Carbon Steel, these irons have the shortest blade lengths, the thinnest soles and the smallest overall heads in the vast line of Callaway irons. They’re designed for maximum workability, and for tour-desired turf interaction.

Mizuno MP-18

The pioneers of Grain-Flow Forging, Mizuno went back to its roots with the MP-18 iron model. A throwback to the great muscle backs in the company’s history, Mizuno was shooting for the look of an iron that could have been forged a century ago. Shorter blade length, cambered top line, sharp, compact wedges, all combined with the most minimal badging make the MP-18 an instant classic that set the GolfWRX forums afire.

TaylorMade P730

TaylorMade’s P730, particularly in its prototype incarnations, made quite a splash on the PGA Tour. Building on the heritage of the TP-MB irons, P730 was developed in collaboration with the very best players in the world. The 1025 carbon steel irons irons feature a smaller profile and crisper lines than the MB series irons. The combination of the clean look and a deep rear groove have players drooling. Discussing working with Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose to design the P730, TM’s Senior Director of Irons, Tomo Bystedt said, “What these players need is a very low-inertia club that they can [manipulate] easily, almost like a surgeon’s scalpel.” Behold the scalpel.

Titleist 718 MB

“For the purist there is no substitute for a one-piece, muscle back iron. The 718 MB is the modern choice for those desiring a traditional forged look and feel,” says Titleist in the 718 MB marketing materials.

It’s hard to argue with that statement from the “appearance of a classic forged iron” standpoint. Purists appreciate that the 718 MB maintains Titleist’s traditional lofts (the 6-iron is 31 degrees, the pitching-wedge is 47 degrees), thin top-line, minimal offset, and limited badging. In short, if it ain’t broke…
