Recently I tested the new Odyssey O-Works Red 2- Ball putter. Callaway sent me the club to test for the purposes of writing a review for the Callaway Community.
Red 2- Ball
Putting Green & on-course
Club Characteristics (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
The red color inspires confidence when you are standing over the ball. The microhinge insert has a great solid sound and the feed back is remarkable. You know if you hit it off center, but the amazing part was that the insert kept the ball rolling forward. That was a new one for me.
Putter Performance (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
|EASE OF ALIGNMENT compared to my current putter||10/10|
|QUALITY OF ROLL compared to my current putter||10/10|
|ACCURACY compared to current putter||10/10|
|SPEED CONTROL compared to current putter||10/10|
I have never used a two ball prior to this, not to mention a mallet style putter. With that said, I never had so much confidence lining up on the pesty 5-7 footers. I knew that the microhinge would do what it was designed to do and get my ball rolling forward on line. I also felt that I could totally game this putter because of the speed control that comes from the microhinge insert. The longer, lag style putts were consistent and the roll was true. Callaway has changed putting with this insert.
Comments on Microhinge Technology:
Microhinge Technology is game changing. I tried to put it to the test and attempted to putt a longer distance to see if it would skip, bump, or anything and it stayed true. Unless the putting stroke was over exaggerated to make it skip, but that is the player not the putter. I putted with a Chrome Soft Truvis so I could focus on the quality of roll better, and the Microhinge technology is simply amazing. Great job Callaway!
Looks inspires Confidence. Microhinge keeps the ball rolling forward on line.
Summary of My Experience with the Putter
I really enjoyed putting with this putter. I have used my current putter for over a decade, and I have a lot of trust and a bit of a connection with it. Nothing has ever made me think of replacing it...UNTIL I tried this Odyssey O-Works Two Ball with the Microhinge insert. This putter and the Microhinge technology will make anyone wonder why am I not gaming this!!!
