Odyssey Pro iX

Odyssey has launched a new line of ProType iX forged-milled premium putters with a White Hot insert and adjustable weighting.

After direct feedback from Callaway Staff Professionals, such as Ryo Ishikawa and Phil Mickelson, Odyssey has developed its most technically advanced range for the top-tier golfer.

The ProType iX range features a new and improved White Hot Pro insert for more consistent sound, feel and performance across the putter face.

a new laser milling cutting process has also allowed Odyssey to create tighter tolerances for greater consistency and performance.

Three sets of customisable weights (10g, 15g and 20g) allowed golfer to customise feel and fine-tune a preferred head weight, with the weight wrench also doubling as a divot tool.

The series of new head shapes on offer have also been derived from direct input from tour players.

What's more, a tour-inspired PVD finish creates a non-glare look at address and a Physical Vapour Deposition increases hardness improved durability.

The launch of the new Odyssey ProType iX line follows on from the release of the hugely popular Versa and Tank models.

Odyssey leads the way with 41 wins across all the major professional golf tours thus far in 2013.

Odyssey ProType iX putters will be available from July 12, at a RRP of £279, in three head shapes and 33, 34 and 35 in shaft length options.
