PREVIEW: 2016 Odyssey White Hot RX, Toe Up putters, Works line extension

Odyssey Golf has sold more than 10 million putters with its White Hot insert, and now the Callaway Golf subsidiary is coming out with an improved version that delivers better roll right off the face.

Odyssey White Hot RX putters

The new White Hot RX putters sport the new elastomer insert features ovalroll technology with a textured clear coat to increase friction and help get the ball rolling faster. The White Hot RX insert has an oval pattern design similar to what's been in the Metal-X and Odyssey Works lines. A dual-layer injection molded insert couples with the White Hot insert, sporting a softer core for better feel.

The White Hot RX putters putters, available Feb. 26, will be available in six styles: Nos. 1, 2, 7 and 9, Rossie, 2-Ball V-Line and the new V-Line Fang, which was brought to the U.S. market after success in Japan. The putters will cost $160 with a stock grip, with a $20 upcharge for a SuperStroke grip.

Odyssey Toe Up putters


In a bit of a PGA Merchandise Show surprise, Odyssey announced -- and displayed -- its new Toe Up putters. As opposed to a face-balanced or toe-down design, the Toe Up putters do what the name says by moving weight toward the neck of the putter.

This might be an excellent option for players With an arc stroke, with the idea that it is easier to get the club back to square at impact. The Metal-X face insert gets the ball rolling forward better at impact.

The Odyssey Toe Up putters will be available in the No. 1 blade and No. 9 mallet, each with a SuperStroke Flatso grip, for $200.

Odyssey Works line extension

Odyssey has also announced an extension of its Works line, adding the Odyssey Works Versa Marxman Fang, Odyssey Works Versa No. 7H Putter, Odyssey Works Versa Sabertooth and Odyssey Works Versa Tank Sabertooth models.

The Versa Sabertooth ($200 standard grip, $220 with a SuperStroke grip) sports a dual-fang design for improved MOI, which is also available in a counterbalanced Tank model. The Marxman Fang ($200 standard grip, $220 with a SuperStroke grip) has the same high-MOI designed body, while Marxman alignment uses stripes to help golfers frame the ball on the face. The No. 7H putters ($180 standard grip, $200 with a SuperStroke grip) has a larger footprint and alignment fangs for getting the putt started right.

Each of these putters has the Fusion RX insert and Versa silver-and-black contrasting alignment help.

The Odyssey Works line extension, starting at $180, will be available in stores on Feb. 5.
