Callaway has new Odyssey Black Series putters on the market
Callaway's Odyssey Black Series Tour Design line of milled putters were crafted with input from several touring pros and became available Jan. 15. With a new black look, the putters feature updated shapes and more head options. Each putter is milled from 1025 carbon steel for the soft feel demanded by the best players in the world. Black Series putters feature Advanced Roll Technology for a precise response and true roll. It is achieved through multi-material construction using tungsten weighting, which creates a quicker, more favorable roll by moving the center of gravity back and lower in the putterhead. A urethane dampening layer is placed between the carbon steel putter head and the tungsten flange, which enhances the feel at impact. The TD Milled Face has a deep milling pattern that generates consistent impact performance across the face. Each putter is finished with a Deep Black PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating, producing a durable, glare-free look. The putters are available in several core models, including the No. 2, No. 4, No. 6 and No. 9. The introductory retail price is $269. Visit www.odysseygolf.com.
