Odyssey Stroke Lab Seven Putter: TG Verdict
Odyssey is a master at taking tour-proven head shapes and updating them every other year with new tech to improve everything from roll and feel to alignment and stroke consistency. For 2019, the focus is on the Stroke Lab shaft, which is said to give 20-25% more consistency in tempo, head speed and face angle at impact.
The likes of Molinari and Mickelson have already won with the hybrid steel/graphite shaft, which is 40g lighter than a typical putter shaft, and gives more control without making the putter heavy and unruly. The Seven is a legendary model and while our test pro struggled to really feel the di erence the shaft brought to the party (Chris, though, did notice a di erence in feel) ve of our best 10 models for roll were Odyssey putters, which tells its own story. We weren’t huge fans of the rounded edges of the oversized grip, but choose the nicer Pistol shape and you’ll have a cracking putter.
