Odyssey’s Milled Collection putters comes to the U.S.

Published

on

Odyssey’s new Milled Collection Putters were originally a Japan-only release, but like many successful equipment releases overseas, they’ve made the voyage to America.

The putters, which were released to PGA Tour players at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and have been available in Japan since September, are slightly different than Odyssey’s Works putters.

The biggest difference? The Milled Collection putters, as the name implies, are CNC milled. They also have adjustable weights in their soles.

Face On: An Odyssey Milled Collection #9 putter

Like the Works line, the Milled Collection putters use the company’s Fusion RX inserts — a White Hot insert covered with a Metal-X stainless steel mesh cover. But compared to the Works putters, the Milled Collection models are made with flatter top lines and more squared off head shapes.

Although six models are available internationally, Odyssey’s Milled Collection will be released in the U.S. on April 17 in four models — #2, #5, #6M and #9. They will sell for $349 each.

The putters come with three sets of adjustable weights, which make 340-, 350- and 360-gram head weights possible so that golfers can fine tune feel.

    I’m not sure if these differentiate from the standard Works collection enough to justify the $200 difference. “flatter toplines and more squared off head shapes”???? Oh and a weight kit??? Oh yeah and the part that you don’t use at impact is milled so that’s good. But I’m sure they’ll sell a crap ton.

    If you cant put, you cant score. But if you cant drive you cant play.
    I will buy a R15 TP instead, 🙂

    Why would I get this if its the same price as a Scotty? Serious question because I’m in the market for a real putter.

    Agree with Scooter. You are making contact with the face and if it has an insert, then it doesn’t really matter if it is a milled putter. Same thing with the Cameron’s that have inserts, like the TeI3 line or the new Golo series with the alum wrap around face that is supposed to give it a soft, insert-like feel. Why put that on a milled putter?
    And where are the people who complain about Cameron’s putters costing 350.00 when Odyssey is at the same price point on their milled putters (and so are others)? Thing is, buy a 350.00 Cameron and a 350.00 Odyssey and sell them both a year later and see which one was the better investment. Won’t even be close.

    It looks like the significant advantage these have over the works is the the adjustable weights. The milling doesn’t seem to bring much to the table.

    very similar to scotty odyssey is moving away from making putters for the masses and going to more high end stuff

      Odyssey does offer $350+ putters like every manufacturer should, but also offer high quality putters for less than half that.

    I always wondered what the benefit there was to a putter being milled if it has an insert. I mean, you’re not hitting on milled grooves, and the insert is going to have the biggest effect on feel, right? So doesn’t that cancel out the feel aspect? Anyone care to enlighten me?

      Marketing my friend. All about finding a niche and filling it with product. They make products according to where they think the demand will be. Apparently they see an opportunity to compete with SC, etc. Sell fewer putters but at a higher gross margin.

Cobra releasing new Copper Series irons and RF Forged MB

Published

on

If you loved the look of the Cobra limited edition RF Proto Rev33 irons but were looking for an iron more forgiving to your golf game—or more friendly on your wallet—you’re in luck. The new Copper Series features some of the most popular irons in the company’s lineup, along with a new version of the King RF blades in a stunning copper finish.

King RF Forged MB Copper

The new Cobra RF MB blades share all the same features as the limited edition Rev33, except for the one key difference being the new RF MB’s are forged to final shape through a precise five-time forging process with the face and grooves being CNC milled—versus the Rev33 irons being 100 percent CNC milled to spec.

This change in the process produces an equally precise iron but at a friendlier price compared to the limited edition set.

Just like Rickie’s gamers, the RF MBs have a tungsten weight positioned in the toe to locate the CG directly behind the middle of the iron’s face to enhance stability and feel.

The King RF Forged MB irons will be available in right-handed only and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS C-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. They are priced at $1,399.

King Tour & Forged Tec Copper irons

For the golfer looking for a compact cavity back, Cobra is also offering the recently released King Tour irons produced using MIM in copper.  Here’s a refresher on Metal Injection Molding:

It’s a process using a mixture of 304 stainless steel metal powder, which is heated and injected into a mold. Using a sintering process, the metal is heated to a higher temperature than forging (1340°C vs. 1200°C), which provides a smoother grain flow structure versus forged and cast to maximize soft feel.

Much like the RF MB, the multi-material King Tour irons have a tungsten weight inserted into the toe section to precisely locate the CG to the middle of the face.

The King Tour irons will be available in right and left-handed and come 4-iron through pitching wedge with KBS $-Taper 120 steel shafts, along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips in the stock configuration. A 3-iron and gap wedge are also available through custom orders. They are priced at $1,399. 

(The King Tour irons will continue to be available in the standard chrome finish in right and left-handed)

Now, for those golfers who put a premium on distance, Cobra is also offering the King Forged Tec in copper with all the same technology you know and love from this compact hollow design.

The hollow iron heads are filled with foam microspheres to produce a soft and solid feel at impact and the face features what Cobra calls a forged PWRSHELL insert to maximizes ball speed and launch across the entire face.

The King Forged Tec irons will be available in right and left-handed (variable length only) and come 4-iron through pitching wedge, with a 3-iron and gap wedge available through custom orders. The stock configurations include KBS $-Taper lite in steel and Project X Catalyst 80 (x and s flex) and 60 in R-flex along with Lamkin Crossline Connect grips. The irons are priced at $1,199.  

(The chrome version of the irons will continue to be available in right and left-handed, in both variable and One Length, right and left-handed)

Final details

All three of the copper iron sets will be available at retail and through cobragolf.com starting March 12.

They will also include Cobra Connect powered by Arccos and come with a free 90-day trial of Arccos Caddie.

Jason Dufner testing a new Cobra 3D printed putter at the 2021 API

Published

Ahead of this week’s 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Jason Dufner has been spotted with a new Cobra 3D printed putter. The 43-year-old has been testing the flat-stick on Bay Hill’s grounds ahead of this week’s event, and our members have been discussing the putter in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • ChxDigLongBall: “Dig the name. Looks pretty good. I’d give it a roll. Interested to see what it feels like.”
  • av1084: “Weird all around, in a good way.”
  • KAndyMan: “Can’t wait to see what the putter line up will consist of! Definitely a cool idea using 3d printing. The possibilities are endless with it. Would/will be a strange day in the future when you can get online, design your own one-off putter in the morning and have it at your door before your league tee time that afternoon.”
