What we say...
Odyssey's engineers reckon the new "microhinge" face insert in the Works will redefine what golfers consider to be good roll. New finger shaped grips on the stainless steel face plate are combined with a thermoplastic elastomer feel layer to grab and interact with the cover at impact, lifting the ball into a better roll.
It’s amazing the 2-Ball is still creating waves in putter circles, it’s been around for years and was incredibly designed to be part of a Callaway package set originally! As much as our testers loved the feel and roll delivered by Odyssey’s new microhinge insert the 2-Ball’s overall body design came in for some questioning. There’s no getting away from how round the heads edges are. Combine all those curves with two huge golf ball sized alignment aids on the top and that’s a lot of circles to aim squarely, particularly if you like working in straight lines when setting up putts. Don’t get us wrong the 2-ball shows the path away from the golf ball brilliantly and the feedback and roll from the new insert are unquestionably better than any 2-Ball putter before.
The 2-Ball’s design is iconic, it’s won huge amounts of money for tour pro’s over the years and the new insert makes it better than it’s been before. For us a straight red line across the centre of the alignment discs on the top (like Odyssey did with a black line on a tour version before) would make a lot of sense and raise the design up to a whole new level.
