Looking for an Odyssey Putter?
Which is the best model to go for?

It was an Odyssey putter which brought softer, more responsive face inserts to the world of golf. Along with Ping and Scotty Cameron they sit at the top table of the best putter manufacturers in the world.

Their designs are based on technology, especially after having being bought by Callaway in 1997. They have spectacularly good feel, and the only downside is the price, which can be high when new. You can, however, buy a reasonable used Odyssey, so keep an eye out for these.

About Odyssey Golf:

The company started in 1991 with a big idea - why do you have to have to make a putter out of metal? Their first putters - The Rossie I and Rossie II were made entirely out of an elastomer they call "Stronomic" with brass weights in the heel and toe.

As the ranges developed it became just the face insert - the area of the putter that actually makes contact with the ball that was made from this material. For more information about the Odyssey range and their revolutionary face inserts, click here.

The most popular models in the Odyssey range are undoubtedly the 2 Ball putters which became popular due to the ease of alignment.

Since the 2 Ball success, Odyssey has pursued a winning formula of building putter designs that have high performance (roll and resistance to twisting on off-center strikes) and then marketing these shapes in different "families".

This has a major advantage of maintaining putter designs that stand the test of time, like for example the Rossie, 2-ball and Odyssey #7, and building new technology into it, such as the original White Hot inserts, Versa color markings, stroke lab shaft and triple-track aim lines. 

While these are of course marketing ploys to give Odyssey a reason to sell some "latest-and-greatest" range of models at high prices every year, it also has the effect of giving the used putter market plenty of Odyssey choice and if you're willing to pick up a second hand putter, then Odyssey is a great brand to go for, because you can have the same shape at this year's model, just with a slightly different insert or look and pay a fraction of the new price.
