Many pro and amateur players use them, and once used players usually do not stop using them. Some of the most innovative and best putter designs have been Odyssey putters. They feature many different putter head inserts and alignment devices, which make them stand out from the rest of the field. Odyssey is always chasing to be the # 1 putter in golf with its new ideas and products.
In 2011 there was some unique and different design features produced by Odyssey golf. They vary from convetional putters, belly putters, dart series and women's putters, with different alignment and insert design features installed on each. The two conventional odyssey putters from 2011 are the, Odyssey White Ice 2-Ball Lined putter, and the Odyssey White Ice 2-Ball Blade putter. The 2-ball lined putter is an extended mallet head that features the revolutionary 2-Ball alignment system with a line as an additional alignment aid, a double-bend shaft and full-shaft offset. The 2-ball blade putter is an extended blade-like putter head that has the same alignment system as the mallet 2-ball, a crank-neck hosel and full-shaft offset. Both are outfitted with a weighing system with three different options of weight, so you can adjust the weight of the putter to fit the speed of the greens or what feels more comfortable to you. Both putters feature the white ice insert, which is firmer and stiffer to promote more distance control and more top spin on your roll.
