I'm glad the DFX grip is back and I would like to know more about the insert. Other than that, I have nothing nice to say.

From Jonathan Wall: "The White Hot RX insert features oval dimples that were injection molded directly into elastomer for a consistent roll. A softer back layer was added just behind the insert that improves speed and feel at impact."

Odyssey usually has a great line up of putters. My fav manf. Great pictures OP. It appears to be similar theory as seemore putters of proper alignment intention. I find with such technology I focus too much on alignment and not enough on other putting aspects. Interesting putter, though

Yep, and pretty useless if you prefer a forward press. But not every putter is for every player I suppose.

I feel like these types of putters like SeeMore and now this concept here are all about just 1 type of putting style. Basically you have to do it the way they want you to or its entirely wrong.

Well yeah... the entire point of a SeeMore putter is to force you to do it they way they want. That's why they exist.

Not only is this ugly but it’s down right distracting. I can just see guys now taking even longer to putt so they can line up their Red Ball. If I had to look at that thing I would forget about my line and pace.
Seemore did it best with their RST technology

Yeah, and as we look at the rest of the entire golf world, we know that's a misconception. SO many different ways to do things, and I don't see an enormous amount of people playing SeeMore putters. And i don't see the attraction to this one but time will tell!

I don't anticipate seeing any Red Balls at my course anytime soon but who knows....I did spot an XE1 wedge yesterday

I would love to try this out. When my putting is bad it's usually because my alignment is off. Typically a setup/posture issue.

I actually think this putter looks cool but it will flop like the flip face.  I could see someone using it more as a practice aid though.

Good for Odyssey to keep pushing the envelope and offering different options for consumers but IMO go get fit for an Edel putter.  They custom build a putter based on your individual alignment, speed/distance control, tempo, etc.  My Edel E-3 has been a revelation that I never found in a putter previously and I'll never go back to anything else.

I prefer a face-balanced putter but visually there's too much going on here for my taste.  As previously noted it may very well help other players.

Correct.

I do set up with eyes directly over the ball but this alignment aid would be useless for me unless they could build me one at 79 degrees lie angle. Otherwise the toe will hang down and the ball won’t be pointing directly upward.


Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.
