The Callaway Odyssey White Ice putter has been designed to manage the expected transition to soft balls in light of the changes to grooves in wedges and irons.
The multi layer insert has been made firmer than the XG version to give better feel and a faster rebound at impact. The insert is very light at 8 grams compared to 60 grams for steel and therefore Callaway can move weight on the White Ice putter to the toe and heel to enhance the moment of inertia and stop the putter head from twisting at impact.
The other major change is the sound at impact which is significantly better than before and gives a nice feel of confidence at address.
Insert putters have always lacked the sound feedback that we feel is crucial to good putting so this is a major step forward from Callaway.
The Odyssey White Ice putters have finally solved this problem and we would have to say that the sound is almost as good as an all metal putter and the feel is excellent.
In our view this is a great insert and putter for all golfers on the speed of greens that most amateurs play on and you should definitely give it a try.
