What we say...

Odyssey Eleven putters combine the high MOI forgiveness performance of a mallet with the forward CG of a blade.

A battle’s raging for domination of the hugely popular modern mallet/MOI putter space. Since TaylorMade’s Spider Tour putter grabbed significant tour pro attention and took off at retail in 2016 other putter brands have been forced very much into playing catch up.

Scotty Cameron’s Phantom X family has fought back hard, and thanks to being precision CNC Milled (the Spider isn’t CNC Milled) Scotty’s have found a place in tour and club golfers bags across the globe. Odyssey’s stability and forgiveness focused Ten Series has put up a good fight over the last few years too, but Odyssey say they’re now ready to make the next move in their pursuit of TaylorMade Spider putter eradication by announcing a brand-new compact high MOI Odyssey Eleven family.

You probably haven’t heard too much about forward CG putters before, they’re a relatively new idea (Cleveland used the idea in their Frontline putters a couple of year ago) that go some way to explaining why golfers have loved the feel and launch of narrow blade putters for decades.

Odyssey’s constant research and development process has recently thrown up measurable results as to why forward CG putters work (blades have forward CG’s, wider body MOI style putters usually have deeper CG’s), and the benefit they bring to the party.

Consequently Odyssey are saying the Eleven is their first high MOI putter, and it’s been designed to deliberately attack a forward centre of gravity (CG). With a CG ¼ of an inch further forward (closer to the face) than other leading mallets, the Eleven creates better speed and spin control consistency on off centre hits, as well as a tighter dispersion ellipse in terms of accuracy and distance control.

Of course that means golfers will naturally improve their putting stats on the dancefloor.

Odyssey say they’ve achieved this unusual high MOI/forward CG set up by creating the Eleven as a multi-material, Mechano set of a putter. The Eleven’s head has a 260g steel chassis, with a super light 19g TPU sole insert to remove inefficient mass from the centre of the body. Strategically positioned aluminium and steel weights create a putter that combines the feel and launch of a blade with the forgiveness of a mallet or MOI model.

Odyssey say their new model boasts a higher MOI and more forward CG position than TaylorMade’s previous Spider X putter which leads to improved dispersion, which sounds like a potent combination for lots of club golfers.

To ensure great feel and feedback each Eleven also comes decked out with the brands legendary White Hot face insert and a red Stroke Lab shaft.

All three Eleven heads are the same shape. You get to choose between slant neck, double bend or centre shafted hosels and whether your putter comes with Tour Line or Triple Track alignment stripes or no sightline at all.

Verdict: Odyssey Eleven putter

A battle is raging over market domination in the popular and lucrative modern MOI putter space (millions of dollars are spent within the arena every year), and Odyssey’s Eleven is an outright attack on the competition.

Last year the brand targeted the same audience with the Odyssey Ten, this year it’s the Eleven, and we like how there’s one angular body shape, which sports a new lightweight TPU core, then golfers get three alignment aid options and three hosel set-ups, to tailor the model down to their own personal preference. So it’s a really simple putter family to understand and choose from.

We’re big fans of straighter line putter shapes on the dancefloor so naturally the Eleven hit our happy spot which led to holing oodles of putts. We love the feel of the White Hot insert and the idea of having the Triple Track alignment set-up sat behind a Triple Track ball (Callaway Chrome Soft or ERC Soft), just make sure you don’t take too long lining up putts on the golf course as it can take a while getting the pair in a perfect line running towards your intended target.

It’s not a gripe, the only thing we’d change if we were buying an Eleven for ourselves is the grip. The stock model doesn’t have much in the way of flats or sharp edges, which we like for promoting a positive and confident stroke on the greens.
