The dilemia: create a traditionally performing Odyssey putter with a crisper, more metallic feel off the face. The answer: The Odyssey Metal-X putter,

The Metal-X is the latest development in Odyssey pushing the boundaries of putter design. The Metal-X range has been developed thanks to feedback from tour players. Their input highlighted the desire for traditional Odyssey performance but with a more metallic feel from the face.

Odyssey incorporated a lightweight aluminium face backed with a layer of urethane, allowing the optimum distribution of weight in all the Metal-X models. The new face delivers a crisp strike whilst maintaining the softer feel and optimal touch associated with Odyssey putters.

Odyssey pulled out all the stops in the Metal-X range to optimise the performance from the club and have introduced a key feature to the face for optimal feel. The Metal-X putters have a unique face pattern consisting of oval depressions that create a mechanical lock with the dimples of the golf ball at impact. This creates more friction that results in a lower launch and optimised topspin to reduce skidding and ensure the truest roll through steady ball deceleration.

The Metal-X putters have a sleek midnight black finish following tour feedback to increase durability and reduce glare on sunny days. The core offering of the Metal-X putters from Odyssey include the #1, #6, #7, #8 #9 and Rossie models that offer a range of head shapes from traditional blade to mallet to cater for all personal tastes and the #7 model is available as both a Belly and Long putter with the #1 also being offered as a Belly Putter.

All of the Metal-X putters come with a Lamkin 3GEN Pistol grip which is made of the softest synthetic rubber compound to reduce vibration and enhance feel, allowing golfers to apply light grip pressure for smooth consistent strokes.
