Spotted: New Odyssey Ai-One and Ai-One Milled putters

Published

on

During the final few tournaments of the season, we saw a few new Odyssey putters out on putting greens but had little to no info on them. Most of the players who had them were keeping them away from our cameras and were tight-lipped about the tech and performance. This week, however, we got some in-hand photos of the new Ai-One and Ai-One Milled putters from Odyssey, and they look great. We don’t have any official word from the company on these flatsticks yet, but we can still have fun speculating!

Odyssey Ai-One

This one is very intriguing, as there is what looks like a small window on the sole near the face, that almost looks to have a Jailbreak-type truss visible. I think that Odyssey has been using AI to model some face-supporting structure that will increase consistency and help with roll on impact. The window also seems to be visible on only the mallet-style putters. But again, this is just speculation.

A new insert is also visible on the face, and it looks to be metal with some horizontal grooves on it. Alternatively, it could be some type of White Hot material that has a metallic silver finish. I like the black finish the Ai-One has as it looks to be a matte texture, which gives the head a classic and clean look.

On the sole is a soleplate held in place with hex screws on the larger mallets and glued in place on the smaller mallets. The Ai-One heads each have two movable weights that are solid blackout on the toe and heel.

The back cavity has a badge that looks very similar to the window on the sole, but I can’t tell if it is clear to show off the back of the face or just a highly reflective silver finish.

Interestingly, we don’t see Odyssey’s Stroke Lab shaft on these putters, they all seem to have traditional steel shafts installed. That said, these are putters for the tour, so we still might see the Stroke Lab shaft when these come to retail.

Odyssey Ai-One Milled

The other Odyssey putter model out on the practice green was the Ai-One Milled. This Milled version has what looks to be a copper insert on the face with a heavier, oval milling pattern that is surrounded by a copper ring. If this insert is milled from a copper alloy, then we should expect a soft and responsive feel and sound at impact.

Looking at the sole, we don’t see anything near the face to show there is a support structure on the mallets. It could be there, maybe just hidden under the larger sole plates. Those sole plates are flanked by square weights with a unique pattern on them. It’s very interesting that the Ai-One and Ai-One Milled putters use different weights, so a single weight kit won’t work for both putters.

Between the name and seeing the milling marks on the sole, we can assume that these are fully milled heads. They look to have the same matte black finish as the Ai-One putters but with copper paint fill as opposed to the blue accent from the Ai-One. Again, I don’t see any of these with Stroke Lab graphite shafts.

    Nothing like paying $400-500 for a putter that performs the same as the $150 one.

      150.00?
      Try $90.00. Ive had a Wilson Infinite west loop for 2 years and it literally outperforms all of the overpriced nonsense out there. It always makes me chuckle when i see people running for the next great thing, and of course here it comes…

      “AI”!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      It MUST be better!
      LMFAO

        Same. I love my Cleveland 10.5 CS. Paid $85 for a great condition used model.

      And half the guys on tour are using a putter they’ve had for 20 years, or found in a bargin bin.

What are the best anti-left hybrids that carry 225 yards? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been having a discussing over hybrids. WRXer ‘LowDime’ kicks off the thread saying:

“I am looking for suggestions for an anti-left 4-5 hybrid to replace 4-iron that I can carry 215-225.  I have yet to find a hybrid I can hit that does not go left. 13ish handicap.  I have a Sim 7-wood that either goes 220 or 250 so need something more consistent.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

  • Sean124: “I like the TSR3 because you can move weight towards the toe. Also consider a shorter/heavier shaft that gets it playing closer to a long iron than a fairway wood.”
  • Yuck: “I have had issues with left on hybrids and tended to carry a 2 or three iron instead.  That said, the Callaway Alpha 815 18 degree.  (2 iron replacement), with a Tensi White has been great in avoiding the lefts.  A miss with it is actually a low fade for me, which is worlds better than a hook that keeps going left.  The best part, is you can probably find one dirt cheap, since they are circa 2015.”
  • aussieb: “The two hybrids that come to mind when looking to avoid a hook for the better player are the TSR3 and ST-Z 230 for the adjustability and internal weighting.  Nothing will stop a bad swing from snap hooking, but these both tested well for me.  Still put the Mizuno in the bag when I need a higher flighted ball for rock hard greens.”
