Odyssey Left Handed Stroke Lab Nine Putter
The Odyssey Stroke Lab Nine Putter is a heel shafted mid-mallet design with our multi-material Stroke Lab shaft, toe hang, and a White Hot Microhinge face insert.
A Stroke of Genius
StrokeLab is about challenging common, well-established putter norms with innovative ideas that promote better performance. The new StrokeLab line of putters incorporates a unique new method of weight distribution designed to improve the physical dynamics of the stroke.
Most golfers’ putting strokes are inconsistent. Yet most putting technologies focus on improving alignment or improving the quality of roll. They attempt to mask a given stroke’s weaknesses instead of improving those weaknesses. Odyssey’s new StrokeLab putter line helps improve the stroke through a profound change in weight distribution made possible by an innovative new shaft*. This is a completely new approach to putter weighting, and only Odyssey has it.
The StrokeLab shaft is a full 40 grams lighter**, made possible by an innovative new multi-material shaft design that combines a graphite body with a steel tip to net out at just 75g, with most of the mass concentrated in the tip. We’ve redistributed that saved weight by adding 10g to the head in the form of two sole weights, and adding 30g to the grip-end via a 10g-lighter grip and 40g end-weight.
The effect of StrokeLab’s innovative weight distribution on the stroke is dramatic. Odyssey studies indicate improvements in the consistency of backswing time, face-angle at impact, ball speed, and ball direction*. Feel for the putterhead becomes more acute, helping the golfer repeat the same, smooth stroke time after time.
StrokeLab putters are targeted at any golfer who wants to putt better (that’s everyone). The Stroke Lab line-up consists of 10 great shapes — six mallets and four blades – all with our newest White Hot Microhinge insert for smooth roll and great feel, in a choice of pistol grip or oversize grip.
“You feel the difference immediately,” said Luke Williams, senior director of putter marketing. “The putterhead moves freely, smoothly and on a sound path, helping you roll the ball accurately while giving you greater speed-control.”
“These new putters epitomize what StrokeLab is all about,” said Sean Toulon, senior vice president and general manager of Odyssey. “Questioning the norm for the purpose of developing putters that perform substantially better to help golfers make more putts.”
Features & Benefits
Multi-material StrokeLab Shaft for innovative weight distribution
Tip-heavy graphite and steel shaft saves 40 grams* that’s relocated into each end of the putter to change performance dynamics.
Slightly stiffer and lower torque for increased control
The Stroke Lab Shaft is slightly stiffer and lower torque compared to standard putter shafts for to better control the slightly heavier head.
Sole weights and grip weight for a smooth and accurate stroke
Additional weight in the sole and butt-end of the grip change the putter’s dynamics to help golfers consistently repeat a smoother and more accurate stroke.
White Hot Microhinge Face Insert for a great feel and smooth roll
Combines legendary White Hot feel with dozens of microhinges embedded across the face that promote topspin for smooth roll and acute distance control.
