"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." That is the idea behind the Odyssey Metal-X Arm Lock Putter.
Just days after golf's governing bodies, the R&A and USGA, announced they would be banning 'anchored' putting stokes, Odyssey introduced their new Metal-X Lock Arm putters that conform with the rules change.
The 43 inch putter is designed to offer an alternative method to stabilising the putter, as a natural extension a golfer's arm. The grip on the Lock Arm putters is a one-piece grip taken from Odyssey's belly putters, and is designed to stretch up the inside of a golfer's leading arm. The grip features the words "Arm Lock" on the side of the grip that should be pressed again the inside of the arm.
While most putters have around 3 degrees of loft, the Odyssey Metal-X Arm Lock putters feature 7 degrees, due to the forward press created by the angle of the leading arm.
We heard from Odyssey's Global Directior, Chris Koske, who told us:
"We have been anticipating the proposed ban on the anchoring technique for some time now, and working with our Tour players, have identified an alternative and Tour-proven putting method. We’re now moving quickly to deliver the Arm Lock products that promote a stable and consistent putting stroke for both professional and amateur golfers.”
Odyssey's Principle Designer, Austin Rollinson, added "We were adamant about offering alternative solutions to golfers who might change their current technique based on the recent anchoring proposal."
The Odyssey Metal-X Arm Lock putter will be available in two familiar head shapes, the #7 and the DART.

The Odyssey Metal-X Arm Lock putter does exactly what it says on the tin. The mid length shaft is designed to be anchored against your arm so that you can make a conforming stroke as defined by the rules of golf to come in for 2016.
Using the putter will take some time if you have not used a long shafted putter before as it does take some trial and error to find a comfortable position to make the putter work. Our favourite was to rest the shaft against the left arm, clasp the shaft and left forearm with the right hand and then rock your shoulders.
