Odyssey’s new White Hot Pro putters dial in feel and fit

Published

on

There’s plenty that’s new with Odyssey’s White Hot Pro putters — the lineup has new models, a new finish and a new fitting system. But what many golfers will like the most about the company’s new putters is something that’s old — the feel of the company’s original White Hot putter insert.

Despite all the new inserts Odyssey has released throughout the years, 60 percent of touring professionals continue to use the original White Hot insert in their putters. That’s why Odyssey has decided use the White Hot insert in both of its major putter lines for 2013 — White Hot Pro and its Versa series (click here for more information on Odyssey’s Versa putters).

According to Austie Rollinson, principal designer for Odyssey, the White Hot inserts in the new lineup feel the same as the old inserts. But they’re made with a new laser-cutting process that creates tighter tolerances to make the urethane inserts feel and sound more consistent than the original.

The White Hot Pro putters also have a new look that sets them apart from previous lines– a PVD (physical vapor disposition) finish that resembles a traditional gunmetal finish but doesn’t require constant maintenance to prevent rusting.

The White Hot Pro line includes models #1, #2 CS, #5, #7, #9 and Rossie, as well as the V-Line 2-Ball, D.A.R.T and D.A.R.T. Mini models for $129.

Odyssey is also releasing adjustable-weight models of the D.A.R.T, D.A.R.T mini, 2-Ball and 2-Ball Blade (all for $179) that include adjustable weights and a wrench that allows golfers to increase to the head weight from 350 grams to 360 or 370 grams.

Odyssey has also released it new EyeFit System, which helps golfers decide on a putter model based on their setup position. According to Rollinson, the closer a golfer’s eyes are to the ball at setup, the more likely it is for a golfer to have a straight-back, straight-through stroke. Likewise, the farther away a golfer’s eyes are from the ball, the more likely a golfer is to have an arched stroke.

Odyssey’s Versa and White Hot Pro putters for 2013 have a dash system on the sole that corresponds to the four different eye positions a golfer can have at address. The EyeFit’s mirrored finish shows golfers their eye position at address and recommends a range of putter models that will best fit their predicted stroke type.

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
