Odyssey considers itself the leader in putter innovation. The company is hoping consumers will give a thumbs up to its new Toe Up putters. Odyssey reported it has used Stroke Balanced technology to reduce torque during the stroke for minimal twisting. The result, it said, is it’s going to be much easier to toeupputterget the face back to square. In order to accomplish this, Odyssey said it has strategically placed more weight towards the face to balance the putter, and the center of gravity is aligned with the center of the face. All this is designed to promote a more consistent stroke, and when you put your finger up to the face, you’ll see that it balances toe up, which makes it unique to any other putter in the market.

The new Toe Up putters also feature Odyssey’s Metal-X face is fly cut face so that it’s perfectly flat and it’s chemically etched, which leads to a pure roll. Its hi-def alignment, three white lines featured in its Marxman family, also highlights the proper address over the ball. To aid in minimal twisting, it also features the Superstroke Flatso 1.0 grip and the new Counter Core technology. Weights can be purchased at your local retailer, Odyssey said.

“The whole idea behind the Toe Up putter is it’s in of a smaller blade-style putter, to reduce the torque feeling in the hands,” said Odyssey Chief Designer, Austie Rollinson. “We did this years ago in a putter we called Back Strike, which was a big mallet. We designed the shaft and shaft axis to be more in line with the center of gravity so there wasn’t any torque added to the hands. This is now being done with a smaller blade style putter. Any type of torque that you get in the hands when your stroking it, if you have a straight back, straight through, you’re not gong to be as sensitive of when it opens and closes. Torque cam make you change your grip pressure or change how you rotate it back and forth and it may cause inconsistencies in the stroke.”
