Odyssey Havok and Jailbird putters

Published

Odyssey Versa and Jailbird-1

Happy New Year to fans of Odyssey putters, who only six days into 2014 are greeted with two new radical designs from the putter company, the Havok and Jailbird putters.

The Havok is what Odyssey calls an “ultra high MOI putter,” with a low, deep center of gravity that creates forward roll and more consistent ball speed on impact points across the face. The Jailbird is similar to Odyssey’s extremely popular No. 7 putter, with an added bar on the back of the mallet that gives the Versa putter what the company is calling “Double Versa Technology,” or four alternating black-and-white lines instead of the three lines used on other Versa putters.

The putters will make their Tour debut this week at the Sony Open. The Havok will retail for $159.99 ($199 with a SuperStroke 3.0 grip), while the Jailbird will sell for $169.99 ($199 with a SuperStroke 3.0 grip). The Jailbird is available in both the white/black/white/black and black/white/black/white color options. We’ll update this story with a release date for the putters as soon as it becomes available.

Both putters feature Odyssey’s new White Hot Pro insert that made its debut on the 2013 line of White Hot Pro and Versa putters.

    I like them, but I’ll take a guess and say neither of these will be made in LH?

    Everyone just wait for the Metal X Milled to come out. That is a proper putter.

    Still cannot for the life of me understand why Callaway does not have a Tank/Versa offering. Seems like a no-brainer to marry 2 of their new ‘innovations’.

    Interesting to see companies push the boundaries with technology. These two are certainly new designs and will never make my bag but to each their own. I am certain that these putters will work for some and will have others who hate them as that is the way equipment goes these days. I don’t really care about the names either, but I am glad they brought back the White Hot insert.

      No doubt they are both “new designs” that have benefits over the old designs but all I see is a #7 and a sabertooth with crossbars added and a very slight altering of shape. That being said I still game a sabertooth from time to time so I’m sure they will do great.

    Gimme a break. Jailbird? Who comes up with this crap for Callaway and why does Callaway allow it? It really is such poor manners and no respect for the game. It’s not even funny. So completely classless and ungentlemanly to use such terms in relation to golf. Puts out a really bad vibe. They really ought to be ashamed of themselves.

      wow, i didn’t mind the names. this type of putter hasn’t worked well for me in the past because i have a mental block when i’m using something other than a blade style putter but i had no issue with the name jailbird. i don’t think it has any impact on the image of callaway and certainly not on the game of golf. i think you over-estimate the influence of the name of an individual putter model from an individual manufacturer. of course maybe i’m underestimating it and once all the hooligans and nogoodniks see this as a putter option, they’ll completely take over the game and courses will be covered in gang related graffiti. i guess we’ll see who’s right this season. enjoy the new equipment. 2 jailbirds please!

        Same here, mate, I have the same kind of block when playing one of those ugly putters.

        Now these putters are average ugly, nothing beats how ugly the Spiderghost by TM is.

      Wow, calm down…I agree it’s sort of a silly name, but “completely classless and ungentlemanly” to use the term jailbird in relation to golf? If Fowler rolled up in his bright orange head to toe and was rocking one of these, I think you’d have an aneurysm. It’s surely no worse than Rocketballz(ier)…

  • thebishop: “Wow. Those look really good. And the transition is complete now. We’ve gone from visible tech to hiding it all under the hood.”
  • Matty01984: “They look so so good! The thing that I always struggled with when it came to the original T100 was the look at the back. I got over it because they quite simply look incredible behind the ball, but Titleist has taken that up a notch with how they look.”
  • mtnbiker5: “Clean…”

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a Honma TW-PT blade putter. ($325)

From the seller (@nova6868): “You may recognize this putter if you follow Mike Malaska, it’s the same one he rolls. This is Honma’s take on the milled Anser 2 design.

– Soft Stainless SUS303

– Ported neck to save weight

– Tungsten weights added to the sole to increase MOI and forgiveness

– Headweight is 360 grams

– 34 inches, I can add 1″ extension if you want 35

– Stock grip still in plastic, never used

– Stock headcover, never used

– Putter is new, never been outside. Mint/New condition as you can see. These were $450 brand new and I don’t think you can even buy them anymore.”
