Really looking forward to trying these. I've been using a milled face putter for years but I want to give these a go asap. I've always been a mediocre putter and I always seem bewildered at misaligned putts I stroke

At first I thought...ew.  But the 2-ball and #7 look great.  And with the original White Hot insert?  A must try.

Had another wrxer come into GG tonight, hurt his wrist had to have surgery a few weeks ago...rehabbing but can only putt.  I was installing some shafts into his wedges so he had time to kill so went to hit the Versa...! Loved the insert...while I was doing the grips on said wedges, he BORROWS the putter again to go hit a few more...returns about 10 minutes later! LOL!!  He has 6 Byron Morgans...different styles...but started with an Odyssey with the white hot...really loved the way this putter felt.

They look great. I was hoping for a 3-ball SRT version....but I realize that I'm the only one that would probably buy it. I think these will do really well.

I really like Odyssey putters, but one word screams out to me when I see these putters, and that word is Benross.

I'm sure the concept is sound, but they look unbelievably cheap, and looking at the pictures the finish is far from durable.

Fella's this is an updated WHITE HOT insert and it feels amazing.  Glad I can talk about it now. I've been rolling mine and it's just feels so much better then the white ice.

The paint chips on several of them... on the 2-ball, all over the #1, and the rear of the fangs on the #7 don't look too good either.

I can't comment on the long term durability at this point but I typically don't have issues with painted clubs.

Also keep in mind these putters are coming out of a Odyssey staff bag with no headcovers on them.  They were about 30 putters there for Tour players to test out.  Clanging and banging heads whenever they carry it from the tour shop to the range.  Bound to happen.  Again these aren't off the shelf they are just test putters.  

So if you don't use a putter headcover you may have some issues with paint as with any painted club.

That #7 will be mine. MARK MY WORDS!

Just a matter of which alignment 'works' better.

Any date on when will these be showing up at retailers?

With the 7 coming in 4 different layouts... WBW and BWB in front to back and left to right patterns, it's going to be interesting to see which is the 'winner' in my minds eye.

Liking the #7.  To me, the models with the paint lines going front to back (rather than heel-toe) seem more intuitive but ill reserve judgment.  Any pics or description of the grip or head cover?
