Odyssey Milled Collection, Model #5
This just in -- Odyssey Golf is launching its new
Milled Collection Putters on Tour at the Arnold
Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Featuring the Fusion
RX insert, these putters were initially released in
Japan, where they were so successful that the
company decided to move forward with a U.S.
release. While they are planned to be in the bag of
select staff members at the Arnold Palmer
Invitational, a retail date will follow less than a
month later. (And just in time for golf season for
many of the country's golfers, who may feel like
they have been exiled to Ice Station Zebra this past
“Milled Collection has performed well both in the
marketplace and on Tour in Japan, and we’re very
excited to introduce it this week on the U.S. Tours,”
Odyssey Global Product Director, Chris Koske said.
"This is a great addition to the line for us. It's
the intro of new and unique head shapes, and of
course the Fusion RX insert that's been so key to the
success of our Odyssey Works Putters."
CNC MILLING, FUSION RX INSERT
To sum it up, you've got a CNC milled putter
that includes the combination of two very popular
insert technologies, the (White Hot and Metal-X)
merged into the Fusion RX for an awesome
combination of feel and roll. CNC milling and hand
finishing result in the kind of precision demanded by
the world's best players, and at a price point of
$349, it's not out of reach for the rest of us.
If you're a fan of Odyssey models #2, #5 and
#9 you'll likely be pleased with the subtle changes.
The company's designers refined every detail, which
led to the development of some unique shapes, for
example a more
squared head and a flatter topline.
Golfers love adjustable weighting, especially in
the phase of experimentation that many former
anchorers are going through. Each Milled Collection
putter includes 3 sets of customizable weights
(340g, 350g, 360g).
Milled Collection putters from Odyssey will be
available at retailers on April 17.
