I received the Odyssey O-Works Putter from Callaway as as part of an event with the online golf forum The Hackers Paradise.
Practice green, on course, 70 degrees and clear.
Club Characteristics (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
I love the look of the putter. The back with white she me and red alignment line look fantastic. Putter looks great in front of the ball. Ball has a great sound off the face, muted and not clicky. Ball feels good coming off the face. And feedback is instant. The bottom of the club looks great and gives me a star wars vibe which I love. Head feels great and weighting is excellent.

The black and white versa scheme with red alignment line makes it very easy to line up a putt. Aim, swing and roll. Ball goes where you aim it. The ball rolls immediately off the face. It does not hop or skid, just rolls right away. Distance control is excellent. A few strokes on a practice gene to gauge speed and you can easily control it. Start the ball on your intended line and it tracks right on it. I feel confident with the club from anywhere on the green. I know if I hit it on my chosen line it's going to go where I want it to.
Black and white versa color scheme with red line for alignment. The micro hinge face gets the ball rolling without skidding. Distance control and feel is phenominal. The sound off the face is nice and does not click or ping, just muted and love that. It is so easy to line up and the feel is so good this putter just gives me confidence on the greens. I've managed to drop a few strokes already playing with this and I expect to drop more as I improve my game. This putter has the best of everything to me. Great sound, feel, distance control and looks. It's a winner.
The paint of the white on the black does have some minor imperfections where the paint bled a bit onto the black. But unless I'm looking hard for it. You would not notice.
Summary of My Experience with the Putter
What can I say, I've always loved a blade style putter but never really got along with them. I love the look of this putter. It sets up nicely behind the ball, and when I hit it the ball rolls right away. It is so easy with the new face to get the ball rolling. And dialing in distance only takes a couple of strokes and you know how hard or soft you need to hit it. I don't have any issue with this blade putter. It's in the bag and staying there.
