A weight-saving, multi-material shaft allows Odyssey to redistribute the excess weight to more effective parts of the putter. At 75 grams, the shaft within the Stroke Lab range is 40 grams lighter than the previous model - a weight saving that could only have been achieved by adding a multi-material shaft that consistent of graphite and steel components.
This innovative approach to putter weighting gives Odyssey the opportunity to add weight on both ends of the putter, helping golfers achieve a repeatable and consistent putting stroke. By adding 10 grams in the head and 40 grams in the grip, the Odyssey Stroke Lab performs like a counter-balanced design.
Premium putter maker Odyssey has a long history of asking 'how and why?' in its search for true innovation.
Challenging preconceived ideas has served Odyssey well, with the company a formidable force in cutting-edge putter design and a frontrunner when it comes to introducing new concepts.
The new Odyssey Stroke Lab putter line-up applies the same approach, featuring a design ethos that flies in the face of conventional putters to produce game-changing flat stick performance.
And with 10 new Odyssey Stroke Lab putters to choose from, the hole will be looking pretty big in 2019.
THE STROKE LAB BREAKTHROUGH
Putters have long been a source of frustration for the majority of golfers, with inconsistent and unpredictable stroke paths the cause of many missed putts.
The established thinking prior to the new Odyssey Stroke Lab putter range was to simply limit the impact of a dodgy stroke path.
Previous putters relied on alignment aids and roll-enhancing features on the face to improve performance. They are reasonable ideas, but merely wallpaper over the cracks of a weak and inconsistent putting stroke.
Enter the new Odyssey Stroke Lab putters, with a focus on actually improving a stroke’s weaknesses through an innovative new distribution of weight.
A new multi-material shaft is the X-factor ingredient in the new Odyssey Stroke Lab putter line-up.
The new shaft is a combination of graphite and steel and weighs in at a mere 75g, which is 40g lighter than a regular steel shaft.
Freeing up that much weight meant Odyssey could re-write the rulebook on how weight is distributed, making it easier than ever to make a repeatable and consistent putting stroke.
Another 10g of weight has been added to the putter heads through a pair of sole weights, while at the opposite end, a new grip which is 10g lighter has been equipped with a 40g counterweight.
The multi-material shaft also concentrates most of the weight in the tip, with the heavier steel part of the shaft closest to the putter head.
The shifting of mass in the Stroke Lab putters has a powerful effect and Odyssey’s research has demonstrated the putters will improve a putting stroke quite markedly.
With more mass located near the putter head, golfers will obtain a heightened sense and feel of the putter head leading to a smoother and freer putting stroke that stays on the ideal stroke path effortlessly.
The improved distribution of weight in the Stroke Lab putter range creates greater consistency and a more repeatable putting stroke, with Odyssey’s research indicating other improvements such as a straighter face angle at impact, enhanced tempo and greater ball speed control and accuracy.
The new Stroke Lab shaft is also stiffer and has lower torque to counteract the weightier putter head.
Stroke Lab putters also feature the famous White Hot face insert that encourages a top spinning ball roll.
