The Callaway Odyssey Flip Face #1 putter is rounded heel-toe weighted blade putter that allows golfers the ability to alter the putter's face insert quickly and easily.
Furthering the demand for adjustable equipment, Odyssey have created the Flip Face putter, offering golfers the benefits of either a Metal-X or White Ice insert. Using a screwdriver, that actually doubles as a pitch mark repairer, golfers can seamlessly rotate the putter's face 180 degrees and choose the face insert based on feel, speed and roll characteristics or simply based on the weather or course conditions.
The Metal-X insert has a lightweight aluminum face on a urethane backer layer providing crisp feedback and a softer feel. The oval depressions on the Metal-X insert create a mechanical lock with a ball's dimple pattern at impact creating more friction for a lower launch. Alternatively, the White Ice insert has been enhanced to improve sound, responsiveness and consistency. The inner core is firm and stiff enhancing feel, resiliency and supporting distance control. The White Ice face insert features a tour-inspired surface that has been roughened to increase friction with softer balls, for a more appealing sound at impact and promoting a better roll.
The Callaway Odyssey Flip Face putter features a clean, premium, satin chrome finish and is available in three different models, the #1 shown here, the #5, a rounded mallet with a single bend shaft and a #9 toe-weighted, heel shafted flanged blade model. Each model comes with a Lamkin 3GEN Pistol grip, made from Lamkin's softest synthetic rubber, reducing vibrations without dulling the feel of the putt.

The Odyssey Flip Face putter is a clever innovation for those who like the feel of a certain putter but play on different speed greens throughout the year. This can be at different times of the day, dry or wet conditions or summer/winter.
The Flip Face combines two of Odyssey's most popular inserts. The White Ice insert is good for fast greens and is soft with good sound feedback. The Metal X insert is made of aluminium and gives a much firmer feel and sound, similar to what you would get if you had a putter milled from a single block of carbon steel.
The performance was very good and the slot behind the face looks good as is a little bit of an alignement aid. Odyssey have created the Flip Face in several of their most popular styles and we can expect to see more models and more types of face insert being introduced in future if this proves popular.
We liked the concept as it saves having to buy 2 putters for different conditions, especially if you like to adjust your putters for lie or have a certain grip you like to use. And therein lies the problem, which is the price. It's almost the same as buying a White Ice and Metal-X version of the same model anyway, which doesn't seem right to us.
However the choice is yours - the Odyssey Flip Face is a very good putter and if you like the functionality then this is good buy.
