Odyssey’s New Putters Use Tiny, Moving Hinges To Send Balls On A Forward Spin During Impact


Putting may look a lot easier than a lot of other golf shots. That is, until you find yourself consistently missing 10-foot putts in the green. If you suffer similar difficulties, the new Odyssey O-Works Microhinge line of putters wants to help with that.

Unlike traditional putters, every model in the line comes with a special “microhinge” insert that’s designed to gently flex and rebound at impact to help impart a forward spin on the ball. That action should get the ball to start rolling immediately in a manner that’s both smooth and precise, ensuring you immediately post tangible improvements in your putting game.


The Odyssey O-Works Microhinge putter’s insert consists of two parts: a soft thermoplastic elastomer layer inside and a 304 stainless steel hinge plate on the exterior, which holds a grid of those tiny, moving hinges. The full line adds those microhinge inserts on four of the outfit’s popular blade shapes (#1, #1W, #2, and #9) and five of their mallet shapes (#7, #7 Tank, 2-Ball, V-Line Fang CH, and R-Line), so you get a generous selection of putters to add to your GolfPod.


All the blades incorporate the company’s Versa-T alignment system to ensure your shots are perfectly lined up, while counterbalance weights, heavy heads, and heavy shafts promote a more consistent stroke. They’re available in both left- and right-handled models, with a variety of grip options.

The Odyssey O-Works Microhinge line of putters will be available starting in February.
