Odyssey 2-Ball Ten Putter Review
When the Odyssey Ten Shape was introduced a few years back it immediately became one of the most popular choices on tour and more recently with the 2-ball Ten being used by Callaway’s most recent high profile signing, Jon Rahm.
The new 2-ball showcases exceptional alignment systems, which has optional triple-track and tour line as options. There are five models in total. The original Ten has a straight-line alignment aid; the 2-Ball Ten, featuring the classic two balls; the 2-Ball Ten Tour Lined; the Ten triple track and the 2-Ball Ten triple track which is designed to match up perfectly with the Callaway Triple-Track balls.
The 2-Ball models are among the best that Odyssey has ever produced. The alignment helps you frame the ball at address like never before and helps build a consistent stroke when putting. Each putter includes Odyssey’s own White Hot Microhinge Insert, which is designed to stop your ball from skidding across the surface and create a faster-rolling shot.
The 2-Ball Ten Triple track combines the best of Odyssey’s alignments aids and is the perfect putter if you struggle to line up your ball on the greens then this is the putter for you. This can be used with a normal ball but ideally, you would use Callaway’s Triple Track ball to optimize the alignment to the maximum.
However, if these models are far too distracting for you then the tour line putter will be ideal for you. Still includes the 2-Ball design, but with a simple line through the middle of the 2-Balls. This is particularly good for players who like to add a line on their golf balls.
Along with the array of heads, Odyssey Ten also sees the introduction of a new shaft. The new tour-proven, multi-material Stroke-Lab shaft is seven grams lighter than its predecessor and promotes a better tempo for a more consistent stroke.
Overall, this putter is great for adding confidence to your stroke and improving your alignment to start the ball in the right direction. Some of the downfalls are that aesthetically the 2-Ball doesn’t look as good as some of the other models and some of the aids can appear distracting. However, the sole purpose of this club is to promote next level alignment and to ultimately improve your putting stroke and I feel it comprehensively does this.
