Spotted: Red Odyssey O-Works putters

Published

on

The most popular putter model on the PGA Tour currently is the TaylorMade Spider Tour Red, with its “Redback spider” color that Jason Day made popular. Also using similar versions of the putter include 2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, Jonas Blixt and Kevin Tway, among others. Dustin Johnson is using an all-black version, as well.

Golfers being golfers, everyone wants to use, or at least try, a putter that has given others success. And golf companies being golf companies, when something becomes popular they ride the wave.

As such, Odyssey has introduced all-red and all-black versions of its popular O-Works putters, which have a “Microhinge” insert in the face. Read more about the technology here.

Here’s what an Odyssey representative has to say about the red O-Works prototypes:

“We have been asked by many of our players worldwide about red and all black putters to go with our successful Microhinge insert in our o-works line. The players are interested and excited to try them. These are prototypes, they are not finished products, but they will give us insight from a players perspective.”

    The red is dumb, but the black is perfect. I’m surprised they haven’t released the black to the public already. It would be the best selling putter series in a long time for them I bet.

    Does it look to you guys like they are chasing Taylormade with the same exact color schemes as the Spiders?

    Nice, the third (or fourth) iteration of the O-Works line-up. But can we have a blade Odyssey? I think the Meta X was the last model. A black or red blade would look fantastic!

    I thought the Versa was the biggest selling point. I guess Odyssey have to jump on the band wagon. Hiwever I could see how someone may not want any alignment lines or the black/white finish.

    Can’t wait for CPO to try the O-Works insert! I see the play on the TM Spider and all I have to say is the product development, marketing and sales game is too savage.

    I like the #7 black……..

    Say what you want but this is a move to stop the Spider Tour momentum on the PGA Tour.

    Odyssey has arachnophobia!!!

  14. new stuff!!

    May 22, 2017 at 4:08 pm

    I feel bad for whoever already bought an O works putter because these look sweet, especially the red ones.

      Thanks for the sympathy… I even managed to put a knick in mine, so there is no way I can simply swap the ‘normal’ for a red…

      Don’t feel badly for people who don’t get sucked in by copycat fads.

Tour Edge introduces new Exotics 723 series of drivers, fairways and hybrids

Published

on

Tour Edge has today unveiled their new Exotics 723 Series of metals, featuring two separate drivers, fairway and hybrid designs designated as Extreme (E) and Competition (C) spec.

The new E723 metals are MOI+ designs built for maximum forgiveness, while the new C723 designs are all about harnessing power and dialing in low spinning distance.

The Exotics 723 E and C drivers feature all-new design and technology called the Flight Tuning System or F.T.S., which was developed to provide Tour Edge’s largest fitting matrix ever produced.

In addition, one of the top design goals for the Tour Edge R&D team was to provide one of the most adjustable drivers currently available in the marketplace

With the player centric C723 Driver, the Flight Tuning System technology and all its available weight options total 4,860 different fitting configurations for the clubhead. This is due to the ability to swap different weights both on the back sliding track new to the 723 Series, and by having both front and back weights that are interchangeable.

“Every swing, every player type, every inch of performance you’ll need on the golf course is developed into our high technology Exotics 723 series. The Competition Spec player wants more adjustability with hotter and lower spinning flights, while the Extreme Spec player wants max MOI. for increased accuracy, ease of launch and overall playability. We have both sides covered and every swing in between with the 723 metals.” – Tour Edge founder and President David Glod

Exotics C723 Driver

This ultra-premium 445cc profile and deeper face of the C723 is designed for the competitive player to produce low-spin power.

The C723 Driver features a two-tier front/back Flight Tuning System with the back weight on a new sliding track that allows for
both extreme MOI and flight/spin rate manipulation. The C723 driver is designed to offer the ultimate in power, feel and forgiveness through Tour Edge’s 360-degree Ridgeback and Diamond Face VFT  technologies.

Key Features:

Flight Tuning System – A two-tier Front/Back Weight System with the back weight on a new sliding track is employed in the C723 Driver that allows for both extreme MOI and flight/spin rate manipulation.

The C723 Driver will come standard with a 5-gram weight in the front and a 15-gram weight in the back. This allows for adjustability at a rate of +/- 300 RPMs of spin rate when the weights are switched.

The MOI range adjustment is from 5300 g/cm2 to 4900 g/cm2, making for an available adjustability of 11% at your fingertips. It’s a 5% increase in MOI over the previous C design.

Sliding the weight on the adjustable track allows for a +/- 7-yard heel and toe bias in directional flight. For example, if you were to slide the weight all the way to edge of the Fade position, your flight would adjust seven yards to the right for a right-handed player, and vice versa for the Draw setting.

Nine different individual weights that are transferable to every club in the 723 Series will be available from 5 grams to 21 grams.
Adding to its adjustability the adjustable hosel allows golfers to adjust the loft +/- 2 degrees and lie angle through a range of 3 degrees.

360° Ridgeback Technology – Tour Edge engineers created a thinner, more refined Ridgeback activation for C723 with increased structural properties and 360-degree perimeter weighting.

The Titanium Ridgeback spine running from the center of the face through the crown now wraps around the entire perimeter to frame the entire clubhead. Adding Titanium to the perimeter, along with Ridgeback down the center, allows more support on off-center hits to increase face deflection.

The additional perimeter Titanium has boosted MOI significantly. This Ridgeback spine and now 360-degree activation acts as a brace for the entire clubhead to produce more power across the entire face, including the extreme perimeters.

The C723 Ridgeback design is 15% thinner than the previous C722 model, while offering greater structural support properties. Ridgeback is designed to create a superior feel at impact.

The extra rigidity created by the brace through the crown produces a much stronger feel at impact when compared to a full carbon crown and results in a crisper and brighter feel at strike.

Quad Carbon Tech – Tour Edge engineers replaced extra Titanium from the crown and sole by creating Quad Carbon Tech in four different areas of the clubhead. The C723 features 5% more carbon fiber than its previous iteration.

The addition of Quad Carbon Tech saves considerable weight in the clubhead, allowing for the 360-degree Ridgeback design, an increase in MOI, greater face flex in the heel and toe areas so off- center hits achieve greater power. This weight savings has been re-purposed to the ideal location to help with creating optimal CG location.

Diamond Face VFT – New Diamond Face VFT is made up of diamond shapes of variable face thickness behind the face. There are 44 total diamond shapes featured on Diamond Face VFT, comprising seven different thicknesses in an interweaving pattern. The face thickness of the new Diamond Face VFT is thinner on the heel and toe on the C723 Driver.

The mini trampolines that make-up Diamond Face VFT create faster ball speeds and an expanded sweet spot. The increase in Diamond Face coverage to the extreme heel and toe dramatically increases ball speed on off-center hits while also greatly aiding forgiveness on these strikes.

Specs, Price & Availability

  • Lofts: Right-Handed: 8°, 9°, 10.5°; Left-Handed: 10.5°
  • Price: $499.99
  • Available: Pre-sale February 8th; At retail March 1st

Exotics E723 Driver

This 460cc profile designed for maximum forgiveness aims to take MOI to the extreme. The E723 Driver’s extreme low rearward CG position produces an extremely high MOI of 5600 g/cm2, the highest MOI driver Tour Edge has ever produced.

The E723 Driver features a Flight Tuning System on a new sliding track, while bringing the ultimate in power, feel and forgiveness through Tour Edge’s  360-degree Ridgeback and Diamond Face VFT  technologies.

Key Features:

Flight Tuning System / MOI+ – The Flight Tuning System is a weighting design on a sliding track features a 20-gram weight at the extreme trailing edge on the sole of the clubhead.

Sliding the weight on the adjustable track allows for a +/- 10-yard heel and toe bias in directional flight. For example, if you were to slide the weight all the way to edge of the Fade position, your flight would adjust 10 yards to the right for a right-handed player, and vice versa for the Draw setting.

Nine different individual weights that are transferable to every club in the 723 Series will be available from 5 grams to 21 grams. Adding to its adjustability the adjustable hosel allows golfers to adjust the loft +/- 2 degrees and lie angle through a range of 3 degrees.

The E723 Driver’s extreme low rearward CG position produces an extremely high MOI at 5600 g/cm2 MOI, the highest MOI driver we have ever produced. This leads to increased stability at impact and tighter dispersion. It’s a 5% increase in MOI over the previous E design.

360° Ridgeback Technology – Tour Edge engineers created a thinner, more refined Ridgeback activation for E723 with increased structural properties and 360-degree perimeter weighting. The Titanium Ridgeback spine running from the center of the face through the crown now wraps around the entire perimeter to frame the entire clubhead.

Adding Titanium to the perimeter, along with Ridgeback down the center, allows more support on off-center hits to increase face deflection. The additional perimeter Titanium has boosted MOI significantly.
