    Looks like too much offset. I’m a titleist fanboy but after the disaster of the 910hd I bet they release this for another own goal. Callaway and Mizuno look far better offerings to me.

      I dont think this driving iron is why they lost Rory…Yes Tigers blade is nice, but none of us will ever get our hands on that type of club unless its in a memorabilia section, much less bag it.

    I hope Titleist brings back the 2 iron as well and they will sell. Try to find a Titleist blade 2 iron on ebay they are rare and when they come up the old ones still go for $100.00 I have never found a hybrid i have loved or that i did not hit a mile in the air even with xstiff shafts. I prefer a 5 wood or a 2 iron. You dont have to be a tour player to hit a 2 iron, Like all these know it all club experts say. Hybrids have been around for years anyway they just renamed name for marketing purposes. go find your self a original Taylor made burner 5 wood 21 degree is not much different from todays hybrids. Or go find your self a well made driving iron 18 degree from the nineties funny how they look just like a 18 degree hybrid as they call them today. Remember Taylor Made Original rescue club that was probably the first hybrid. Hybrids can be a helpful club but the 5 wood and 2 iron still have there place in golf especially on tight tree lined holes when you don’t need driver, 2 iron off the tee is the way to go.

    Greg don’t worry about the driving irons you won’t be able to handle them anyways. Don’t tell me some bull about being a +3 handicap that swings over 115 and hits his hybrids 250 in the air and needs a driving iron to hit stinger cuts on windy days.

      If you’re going to impersonate a homeless golfer, you should at least spell his name correctly… Nerd.

Odyssey Tri-Hot 5K lineup now includes mallets

Published

on

What you need to know: In January 2022, in the name of creating a blades with the MOI of mallets and forward CG, Odyssey threw everything at the wall with the Tri-Hot 5K family of blade putters: stainless steel, tungsten, 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. A year later, the company is bringing the same technology package to mallets with the Rossie and Seven models. The Tri-Hot 5K lineup now stands at seven putters (four with multiple necks).

2023 Odyssey Tri-Hot putters: Features and technology

Engineers applied the “Tri-Hot formula” utilized in blade putters in 2022 to move CG forward and raise MOI for a more forgiving mallet design — and a 5,000 IZZ inertia level (hence “5K”). Golfers will see improved speed and spin control, as well as consistency on off-center hits, according to the company, resulting in golf balls that finish closer to the hole when sub-optimally struck.

Stainless steel front: Odyssey touts the side-spin reducing capabilities of the 303 stainless steel hosel and face area for off-center putts. Tighter dispersion and putts that a more likely to go in results. Acting in a complementary fashion, the rear of the mallets are milled for tighter shape and weight tolerances that allows the CG to remain forward.

Tungsten front weights: Up to 120 grams of tungsten is positioned behind the face in the heel and toe sections of the putter heads. The resulting forward CG improves roll and increases inertia.

Interchangeable front weights: Available in 5, 10, 15 and 20 grams to dial in head weight and performance.

White Hot insert: 2023 Tri-Hot 5K putters add the iconic two-part urethane White Hot insert, which was originally developed using the same material as Callaway’s Rule 35 golf ball. White Hot, with its “firm but soft” properties has been a long-time favorite of Callaway staffers and recreational golfers. According to Callaway, “They’ve been asking for us to bring these technologies back and we’ve listened.” Can’t argue with that.

Stroke Lab shaft: The newest generation of Callaway’s multi-material Stroke Lab shaft features a shortened steel section and reduced weight (seven grams). Additionally it is stiffer. All of this leads to more stability and consistency.

Additional model details

Full lineup details — and who they’re for — including 2022 releases, via Callaway. 

One: A classically shaped heel toe weighted putter with a crank neck hosel creating moderate toe hang making it suitable for strokes that have moderate arc and face rotation

Two: A classically shaped heel toe weighted putter with a crank neck hosel creating moderate toe hang making it suitable for strokes that have moderate arc and face rotation. Less rounded than the One.

Three: A classically shaped heel toe weighted putter with a flow neck hosel yielding more toe hang making it suitable for strokes with more aggressive swing arc and face rotation

Double Wide (CH, CB): CH: A wide blade with a crank neck hosel yielding moderate toe hang making it suitable for strokes with moderate swing arc and face rotation. CS: Face-balanced center shafted wide blade making it suitable for strokes with minimal swing arc and face rotation

Triple Wide (DB, CS): DB: A face-balanced double bend wide blade making it suitable for strokes with minimal swing arc and face rotation. CS: A face-balanced center shafted wide blade making it suitable for strokes with minimal swing arc and face rotation.
