This fall, Odyssey Golf added a pair of putter models – the Black Ten and the Black Bird of Prey – to its Stroke Lab line.
These flat sticks, which boast different head shapes, are engineered to have extremely high moments of inertia for improved forgiveness. They also employ Odyssey’s Stroke Lab weight-distribution system, which is designed to enhance consistency and tempo through the use of a lighter-weight, multi-material shaft that allows technicians to redistribute heft to the clubhead (in the form of two sole weights) as well as to the grip end (through an end weight).
In addition, a new Microhinge Star insert is used in these puppies to create a firmer feel and more pleasing sound at impact, while also providing the same roll characteristics of Odyssey’s tour-proven White Hot Microhinge.
Both putters also feature the company’s High Def alignment to make it easier to aim at address.
“Our new Stroke Lab Black Ten and Stroke Lab Black Bird of Prey putters are truly remarkable, with all of the premium technologies and performance that they offer,” says Sean Toulon, the company's general manager. “Stroke Lab has revolutionized the putter category by fundamentally improving the rhythm and consistency in a golfer’s stroke. And we’re combining it with all the forgiveness from these super-high-MOI head shapes with one goal in mind: to help every golfer make more putts.”
Both models are available at a retail introduction price of $299.99.
