Odyssey Stroke Lab Putter Review
There is hardly any complaint on Callaway products, especially clubs and balls. Odyssey is a sub-brand of Callaway Golf Company. They are specialized in producing putters. Odyssey Stroke Lab Putter is another quality club from Callaway.
Odyssey makes putters for golfer regardless of their skill, strength, and handicap. The Stroke lab putter we are reviewing has plenty of head styles. And almost all the head styles are built to fit different types of strokes, which is very much effective.
The weight distributing method is a unique one from Odyssey. This has been possible for the innovative new Stroke Lab shaft to improve the physical dynamics of the stroke. Odyssey made the stroke lab shaft a little stiffer than other standard putter shafts earlier produced. This feature allows you to have a heavier weight in the heads rather than throughout the body of the putter and have better control.
For a smoother and more accurate stroke, there has been additional weight put in the sole and butt-end of the grip. This feature changes the putter’s dynamics and helps you to have better shots.
Look & Feel
First, of all, the Odyssey strike lab putter has ten (10) head shapes as shown in the picture. As you can see in the image that each of the putters features a color combination of matte black, white, and silver. To us, all of them appear nice and classy.
There are few new styles and some usual club head styles in this putter from odyssey. Popular styles like the One (Anser), Three (Anser w/flow neck), Double Wide (wide-body Anser), and heel-shafted Nine are available here. There are some regular Odyssey styles too like the Seven, 2-Ball Fang, Marxman, and V-Line. The R Ball (a combination of line and a single ball alignment aids) and Tuttle is the latest addition this time.
Apart from the clubhead styles, the stroke lab putter has 2 styles of shaft available. Oversized grip and pistol style. Though the pistol-style looks a little unusual, it looks good.
From a performance perspective, you will hardly find any better putter that includes such advanced technological features. Ratings from the users and other putter experts are great about this putter too. With a perfect combination of shaft and grip, this putter can cover a wide range of strokes needed based on situations.
The weight distribution from the clubhead to grip works nicely for most of the golfers. It gives a firmer grip in the hand which helped our expert golfer feel comfortable in playing strokes. Besides, it covers good ground too.
In a sentence, every one of our experts loved the clubhead concept and its performance. So, moreover, the highlight of this iron is as follows:
- Low spin but forgiving
