Recently I tested the new Odyssey O-Works Black 2M (Center-Shafted) putter. Callaway sent me the club to test for the purposes of writing a review for the Callaway Community.
Black 2M (Center-Shafted)
I practiced with this putter for about 2 hours on a practice green and played 2 rounds with the putter.
Club Characteristics (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
This putter is legit! Very excited about the way it sets up, looks, and feels!
Putter Performance (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
|EASE OF ALIGNMENT compared to my current putter||7/10|
|QUALITY OF ROLL compared to my current putter||10/10|
|ACCURACY compared to current putter||8/10|
|SPEED CONTROL compared to current putter||9/10|
The one performance characteristic I felt this putter was lacking was an alignment tool/line. Because of this I feel my accuracy specifically with short putts was slightly compromised. If the face technology which I feel creates the best and most true roll of any putter I have ever used could be combined with 2 ball technology I feel I would gain many strokes on the green.
Comments on Microhinge Technology:
Knowing you have the insert alone allowed me to gain confidence around the greens. This putter face is hot! Meaning not much effort is needed to get the ball where you need it to go. This insert ensures the ball rolls true and is very noticeable upon even the first few putts.
Very comfortable design and setup The technology used in the face ensures true solid putts!
Alignment device (2 lines) could benefit from a little upgrade or simpler alignment device. (1 line) 2 ball alignment would be incredible!!
Summary of My Experience with the Putter
This putter is exceptional on the putting green and is very easy to get used to and comfortable with! I will be purchasing this putter in a 34 inch length and likely change the grip to a square grip that I am used to. Very excited about the microhinge insert that rolls the ball incredibly pure!
