If you struggle with your chipping, the new Odyssey X-Act Tank chipper club is said make getting up and down much easier
Odyssey has announced the launch of the X-Act Tank Chipper, a club that could make the short game a whole lot easier for golfers.
Odyssey are more known for their putter ranges, like the very popular White Hot RX line band the recently launched Milled Collection RSX putters, but their new X-Act Tank Chipper is built to help get golfers ‘up-and-down’ more easily. It utilises Odyssey’s Tank weighting philosophy to help ensure a smoother swing, promoting more consistent contact.
Chippers are a cross between a wedge and a putter and usually have between 30-40° of loft. They require less wrist action than a wedge, which means golfers often find it easier to achieve more consistent results, especially from just off the green.
Odyssey's latest creation is designed to function like an ‘Approach Putter’, providing an easy-to-hit option that plays perfectly between a putter and a wedge for those tricky shots around the greens. It has a heavier 355g head as well as a heavier, counter balanced grip that quietens the hands during the motion.
Hi-definition Marxman Alignment with two alignment stripes running the length of the club significantly increases the player's ability to aim the face correctly while the soft polymer face insert provides a soft feel on both long and short chip shots.
A hybrid-like ‘X-Act’ Sole design improves turf interaction around the green, especially on tight lies, to help eliminate stubbed or bladed chip shots.
Finally, an oversized, non taper SuperStroke Chipper Grip design helps stabilise the wrists and hands through impact. The longer design also allows golfers to put their hands in different positions to get the correct feel on a variety of shots.
The product will be in store from July 15th, 2016 with an RRP of £109 available in men's right and left handed and women's in right handed only.
