First of all, Odyssey did a good job of making their White Hot OG putter. The OG 5 is a sweet putter, especially for a low-priced putter.
This is an all-white putter with a low-profile, full-length body and a powerful and classic head. The OG 5 has a stainless steel finish on the body, and the face is made of Lucite.
The OG 5 has a multi-level putter face that has a ball-striking surface, a pocket, and a crown. The OG 5 features Accu-tilt Technology that is designed to automatically tilt the putter head forward or back for the perfect stroke.
The Odyssey White Hot OG 5 is an all-white, fully assembled putter that is easy to carry around. This is a great-looking putter that has a lot of style and character.
Design and Performance of the Odyssey White Hot OG 5 Putter
Odyssey has done a “throwback” with the release of the White Hot OG range in 2021, paying homage to the much-loved putter series launched 20 years ago.
With its simplistic look coupled with the modern red Stroke Lab shaft, the Odyssey White Hot OG 5 putter captured our attention from the moment we saw it.
Odyssey makes excellent putters, and this is another example.
Due to the half-moon shape and the clean black sightline, these White Hots are easy to align and you get the firm feel we remember from the originals.
Thanks to the advancement in technology, the putter is very stable through impact and noticeably easier to use than some other models we have at home when testing on our Perfect Practice Putting mat.
We are not sure whether that comes from the updated Stroke Lab shaft or any changes to the head or weight design, but we are sure that it is a delightful putter to play.
For golfers who have a slight arc or straight stroke, this model is more of a face-balanced model.
Despite some preferring the original black color, we liked the candy apple red color of the new Stroke Lab shaft.
In addition to the grey Odyssey DFX Rubber grip that looks great against the red shaft and almost matches the head, it’s a very comfortable shape with a nice firm feel.
Despite our love of the grip, some may prefer one of Odyssey’s tackier models or even a SuperStroke.
This updated version of the classic design comes with an updated Stroke Lab shaft and a high-quality, magnetic headcover.
We tested the 35-inch model, and our tester liked the longer length and heavier feel of the putter.
Why should you purchase it?
- A classic putter with a modern upgrade.
- It is stylish, comfortable, and performs well.
- Some say the Odyssey has merely refreshed an older model.
A modern take on a classic, this roll offers easy alignment, simple looks, and a strong roll.
