The Callaway Odyssey Flip Face #5 putter is rounded mallet putter with the interchangable option of two of Odyssey's face inserts.

Furthering the demand for adjustability, Odyssey have created the Flip Face putter, offering players the benefits of either a Metal-X or White Ice insert. A screwdriver, that doubles as a pitch mark repairer, lets players seamlessly rotate the putter's face 180 degrees to choose the face insert that suits them based on feel, speed, roll characteristics or simply based on the weather or course conditions.

The White Ice face surface has been roughened to increase friction with softer balls, for a more appealing sound at impact and promoting a better roll. 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 and resiliency and supporting distance control.

The Callaway Odyssey Flip Face putters features a premium, satin chrome finish and are available in three different models. The #1 is a rounded heel-toe weighted blade, the #5, and the #9, a toe-weighted, heel shafted flanged blade model. Each Callaway Flip Face putter comes complete with a Lamkin 3GEN Pistol grip. Made from Lamkin's softest synthetic rubber, this grip reduces vibrations without dulling the feel of the putt.
