  1. Hi All, AcesAndHoles here for the first of many reviews on MGS! We're a group of friends and players in New York that are doing reviews and play-testing of golf (and tennis) gear by average players that don't have the benefits or tools the pros have. We have male and female players trying stuff out ranging from 3-30 handicap to see what works, what doesn't, and what just downright looks great in our bags. Enjoy! P.S. Apologies that we don't have any pics or vid on this one! --- 2019 Odyssey Stroke Lab 7 The first thought I had when picking up the Stroke Lab Seven (“Stroke 7”) was, “holy cow, this thing is sleek”. When I look at the base profile I’m staring at two turbine engines powering my putter to birdie freedom. There’s a classic feel to this putter with the silver and black contrast at address despite the two fins hanging off the back and you will have people come up and ask what you’re playing with as you warm up on the putting green. The review model we had in hands was 35” at 366.3g total weight. For $50 you can get the Stroke Lab weight kit direct from Odyssey to customize the weight and feel of the putter with 15g, 10g and 20g options. Play around with it a bit and you can change the balance—or you can just order from a massive myriad of options, hosel, head shapes, and configurations offered. What’s New? Stroke 7 advertises a Stroke Lab shaft that’s 40g lighter than the typical shafts available with a 2 piece graphite and steel construction. If you’re used to the typical steel shafts, your eyes will be the biggest bias in perceived feedback at address. Feel wise, our crew found the differences are negligible in terms of feedback and vibration and you soon won’t even think about the graphite component of the shaft. Counterbalancing is nothing new in golf and Odyssey accounts for the 40g reduction by adding 10g to the back of the head of the putter and 30g to the end of the grip to smooth out your swing. If you like lithe putters in your hands, this may not be the roll for you. In this rendition you will find the crossover of Microhinges and White Hot technology. The latest face involves a slight tweak in the material composition designed to get the ball rolling towards the hole in a smooth manner without the hiccups or skips that some other putters catch. If you’ve played with an EXO lately, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Face Feel Anyone that has played with a White Hot insert before will recognize the genetics of the muted face at impact. Nothing particularly revolutionary here except a fresh face. Stroke 7 still has more of a “thud” than a “click” from an auditory perspective but produces consistent roll stroke after stroke. However, anyone that is familiar with the mallet style Odysseys will also recognize that there is no discerning audible feedback on strike quality and twist if you happen to pick your head up and don’t spot the issue first-hand. You’ll feel it in the hands, but you’ll have to really pay attention. Stroke/Swing The focus on this rendition of the putter is in stabilizing stroke and back-swing through innovation in the shaft and careful counterbalancing in the grip. As someone that struggles with keeping a smooth pendulum swing and tempo, I was personally intrigued. At 6’3” I prefer keeping my hands to the butt of the putter instead of hunching over but I found the biggest benefit/ assistance from the tech by choking up a bit on the grip. Players with some play in their wrists will benefit from the extra counterbalancing. Overall, I found the shift from backswing to forward motion to be a touch smoother and more comfortable which allowed me to better gauge tempo and retain distance control. Conclusion Odyssey produces quality products year after year—that’s no surprise. They cater to a massive market of players with tried and true success that’s reflected in championships and sales alone. If you’re happy with your current setup and achieve consistent results then this update may be a pass for you. However, if you’re looking for the latest shift in tech to smooth out an errant putter stroke and to give you the best shot at consistent rolls then the Stroke Lab line may be for you. Across the board, all of our testers noticed a subtle change in tempo and timing with this putter. We even pulled one of our blade testers over to the dark-side. TLDR: New innovation with the Stroke Lab two-material shaft helps smooth out tempo and consistency of stroke in this latest edition of putter. Pros: - Sleek looks without being obnoxious for a mallet - Tempo control. - Even swing. - Customization with many options and styles to choose from. Cons: - Too many options to choose from—I wish we could test them all - Lack of auditory feedback for where you strike the face - Aside from the shaft innovation it’s similar to previous renditions. - Players who prefer maneuverable/light putters will not appreciate the counterbalancing.
  2. Follow our four testers of the Odyssey Stroke Lab as they bring you all the details of the hottest putter technology out there right now. Will it perform for them, how does it help their putting? They will leave no stone un-turned or ball un-hit in the effort to bring you a in depth and fully unbiased review of the putter. They will start with their Stage Ones which give you a good look at the putter, and tell you about their games. While they are putting the Stroke-lab in play over the next month to six weeks, they will update this thread with their thoughts and be available to answer any questions the community may have. So fire away with anything you want to know about these innovative putters.

  4. Hi All. First off let me say I am a new member This site was recommended to be my a member at my golf club (Templeton Golf Club) and I must say it has been a wealth of knowledge. So in saying that here is a shout out to NunfaO bloody good bugger for a lefty Right so anyway! I was using an older Odyssey 7 putter when our local pro noticed that my swing was not very consistent hence why I was leaving putts short or hitting them 6 feet past....so we worked together to change my putting stroke. Honestly this was the best and worst thing to go through but once I got comfortable with the new path and grip change it felt amazing. However my Odyssey 7 putter on the other hand felt like a foreign object and I could not hole anything over 2 feet. This is when I discovered the Odyssey Stroke Lab 1 and man it was love at first sight! Let's just say the wife is lucky I do not put this putter between us at night Here is some putter info: Multi-material Stroke Lab 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. This putter gives me 100% confidence when facing any putt. A combination of the blade style, sole weights and my adjusted swing path has meant my average putts per round has dropped so I am super happy. If you are in the market for a new putter I honestly suggest you trying out one of these bad girls (Her name is Erin Lol)
  5. Testers Announced! Odyssey claims its new Stroke Lab shaft will improve your putting stroke. Who will be putting that claim to the test? @MaxEntropy @Berg Ryman @Apolloshowl @juspoole Join me in congratulating our reviewers! TESTERS WANTED (4) So you think the importance of shaft design is only important to drivers. Well the engineers at Odyssey Golf among some of the best and brightest minds in the business want to show you otherwise. For years counterbalancing has been a big buzz word in the world of putter shafts. Well the new Stroke Lab putters by Odyssey Golf aren't just counterbalanced, they take weight shifting to a whole new level or should I say end. As in redistributing 40 percent of the weight from the middle of the shaft into the butt and head end of the shaft. The results show that you will make a much more consistent stroke with Stroke Lab than with the standard putter shaft. Don't believe it? We're going to give you...well four of you a chance to prove it to yourself and the rest of the forum. How to Apply This is important, so please follow these instructions carefully: 1.
