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.

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

    Odyssey has arachnophobia!!!

    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.

Reason not to play multiple hybrids? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether players should have a variety of hybrids in the bag. WRXer ‘Jetandollie’ kicks off the thread asking is there a reason not to play multiple hybrids and wonders whether we’ll get to a point where a 6-iron is the shortest iron in the bag for a player:

“Now that companies (Ping, PXG, Mizuno, Titleist) are making hybrids up to 28-34* with several shaft options is there a reason that the majority of us should not be playing them to as high a loft as we can find? 

All of the review videos and numbers always show that they go higher, land at a steeper descent angle and are significantly more forgiving and consistent than irons. 

I get that the main point of rebuttal is too high of a ball flight and playing in a windy location, but over the course of 60-80 rounds per year (1500-2000 long/midiron shots) will the shots saved from the forgiveness and higher launch/steeper decent not outweigh the iron mishits or shots lost in the wind? 

Will we get to the point with the way tech in clubs is progressing that the norm will be hybrids to the 6 or 7 iron in most bags?”

And our members have been weighing in on the topic 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.

  • MPAndreassi: “Cleveland has been trying to do this for at least a decade now. I don’t think it’ll ever catch on.”
  • cpang05: “Price. For the average guy I see at the muni, starting with a 4H, 5H, then 6i seems really popular. But those hybrids are half the cost of a full set of irons.”
  • Clubhoe: “Workability. Will continue for as long as I’m able to hit them. Will go to utilities next, then hybrids after that.”
  • Mattm97: “I hit my irons better than hybrid. I think it depends on the person, their game and usage. I have a 3H, and I honestly don’t use it a ton except for certain situations.”
