Review: Odyssey Metal X Milled #7 Putter
I went with a #7 style head. I’ve seen so many tour guys winning with this head, I figured there must be something to it. While the face balanced nature of this putter (on paper) would not be ideal for my stroke, on course this thing was money. I found it so easy to line up. I had this in my bag for my recent trip to Puerto Rico and playing with a caddy was really easy, because he would point out the line, I’d line up the rails and stroke it in. I didn’t count my exact number of putts, but I only 3 jacked 1 hole all vacation, that was amazing.
It is that combination of feel that I could control the distance so well and the alignment which got me started on the line I wanted which really made this a great combo. Additionally the weights on the bottom can be set to light or heavy neutral or some combination of extra weight in the toe or heel. I went with a little more out on the toe to keep me from closing the face too soon with my arched stroke and it worked out very well. I almost never had a pull with this putter, but I didn’t have issues pushing it either, it just balanced out nicely for my stroke.
I have read that these Metal X Milled putters are in high demand and have sold out in some places. I know that the replacement is a silver and black versa model with all the same features, just a different paint combo. Either way, I honestly think this is Odyssey’s best putter. The chemically milled face, the headshape, the weights, everything about this combo worked for me. It takes the mystery out of putting.
