Tri Hot 5K
WHAT IT DOES: This distinction between mallet and blade seems so binary, especially when you look at a multimaterial putter like this one. Although the multiple versions here all look like slick blades, each head is infused with enough tungsten to account for half its weight. This creates a moment of inertia (stability on off-center hits) never before realized in an Odyssey blade. The heavy tungsten helps position the center of gravity slightly forward, all of which controls side spin and produces more consistent ball speed. In short, more putts get to or stay near the hole.
WHY WE LIKE IT: For all the manufacturing and technical complexity, these blades still look timeless. That’s why the venerable, smoothly responsive White Hot face insert makes the ideal match.

"Very easy to align, and the sound all over the face was consistently smooth, gentle."
"The release of the ball off the face was like you hardly touched the ball and it started rolling. That makes it easy to make the correct stroke. This was a silent assassin. No noise except the ball falling into the hole."
“I like the two-tone finish, shiny not intrusive. Love the nostalgic firmness at impact. Mis-hits feel like the center of the face.”
