Odyssey Stroke Lab One

Recommended Posts

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)

Hey Djnz, welcome to the forum.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on your Stroke Lab. Not sure if you know, but we're having four members of the forum test and review the Stroke Lab line in a forum review this summer. I'm one of them, so is Apolloshowl above, and one of the testers (Juspoole) is going to be reviewing the One! Hopefully you follow along in the thread when it goes live and keep us posted on your experience as well

I jumped into the ONE on the other side of the ball (lefty)

This is the first anser style putter I have owned and like you a newer stroke was a confidence killer.

However, the ball rolled well and I was left with a bunch of tap ins. Just got to trust myself the putter works fine

Has anyone tried putting on a different grip or is the grip weighted a certain way to balance the club properly?  I recently purchased a Toulon putter which has the same shaft that is weighted on both ends.  I'm was thinking of putting a gravity grip on it but have a feeling that will make the weighting out of balance.  I cannot find the specs of the weight of the grip to replace it with something that shapes my hand better.

According to a Mark Crossfield video I saw, the counterbalance weight is 30 grams.

From Odyssey's Blog on Stroke Lab. My guess is that the grip itself is 10 grams lighter than a stock Odyssey Grip so somewhere in the 40-45 gram range?

What’s the story behind the Stroke Lab Shaft? The Stroke Lab 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.

I guess I can cut it off and weigh it then find something of the same weight.  Kind of crazy.

I just weighed a Gravity Grip and its 123.7 grams.  It has a 50 gram steel rod down the length of it so the grip is 70.7 grams.

I imagine this is the exact weight of the SS counter core with the 50 gram insert.

I bet a dime to a dollar the Odyssey Toulon or Stroke Lab grips are exactly the same weights.  I was hesitant to cut the grip off but the Odyssey garage has the SS grips for an option and I'm sure they are the same exact counter core grips but with special green toulon or yellow stroke lab colors.

I have combed all the forums and apparently no one has changed grips on their Toulon/stroke lab putters.  Or they haven't cared to worry about the weighting which is integral to the club itself.

I can't believe I'm the only one concerned about weighting this thing properly.

 

From globalgolf.com.  Its about the Toulon but the shaft, grip and head weights of the strokelab putters are the same.

Toulon Putter Models

Each model in the line is designed for a specific stroke, from straight-back to strong arcing. In that order (no arc to most arcing), the models are Indianapolis, Memphis, Columbus, Madison, Austin, San Diego, Long Island.

Every Toulon putter is also available in a counter-balance model. Further, there are 2 types of counter-balance options, Aggressive Release (AR) and Moderate Release(MR). The AR has a 40-gram sole plate and 14″ Super Stroke grip with a 50-gram butt-end weight. The AR design lets the clubhead release more at impact, mimicking the release of a long or belly putter. It comes standard at 38″ long.

The MR has a 20-gram sole plate, standard Super Stroke grip with a 25-gram butt-end weight. It allows you to release the head more with a standard stroke. The lengths available range from 33 inches to 36 inches.

Is that the inserted weight?  Sorry I'm new to the nomenclature.  I think that is the screw in weight and then the total weight of the grip with weight would be about 110 grams.  At least, I think it is an educated guess.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you are correct.

Sean states they added 30 grams to the butt end of the grip.  SS only offers 25, 50, or 75 gram inserts.   Gravity grip is 50 gram rod.

 

Hmmmmm....What to do.  So what happens if you need to change a worn out grip?  This seems implausible that they would design a putter that cannot be re-gripped with the same specs.

I posted this on the Toulon thread answering my own post in case others are wondering.

According to a Callaway/Odyssey rep, the strokelab shaft is meant to pair with the strokelab grip.  They have many offerings when ordering but that is to please the masses.  If you want the proper weighting that is designed for the putter then you need the strokelab grip with the yellow lettering shown in the pictures from the OP.

I keep answering myself so I'm clearly crazy and taking this too far.

On another forum someone replaced their Oversized StrokeLab grip.  The weight is 41 grams.  It looks like it's probably 40 grams and there is a plastic shroud around it that is probably a gram.  The grip itself is 65 grams.  Gravity Grip is 123.7 grams.  The only SuperStroke grip close is the Mid-Slim 2.0 with a 50 gram weight and grip weighing 64 grams.

Also, Sean Toulon has no idea what weight is in the grips of his designed clubs.  In that video, he initially says 40 grams then corrects himself to 30 grams.

      Press Release from Titleist
      FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (July 8, 2019) – Twenty-two years after the emergence of his original Teryllium-inserted, major-winning TeI3 designs, Scotty Cameron has reimagined and announced the limited release of three new putter models built under the “T22” moniker. 

      Available in golf shops beginning Aug. 16, the Teryllium T22 Newport and Teryllium T22 Newport 2 offer modernized versions of the TeI3 models first introduced in 1997, while the Teryllium T22 Fastback 1.5 becomes the first Fastback 1.5 designed with a Teryllium insert. 

      Precision milled in the United States from 303 stainless steel, and given a tactical matte black finish that brings out Scotty’s unmistakable “domino pattern” in the back cavity, the new T22 putters are designed to the modern specifications demanded by today’s dedicated golfers. An updated Teryllium inlay construction with an improved elastomer vibration dampening membrane combines with Scotty’s removable sole weight technology and increased head weight to catapult the entire T22 line into the future: 

      • Teryllium T22 Newport: First brought to prominence as the putter design trusted to victory at the 1997 Masters, Scotty’s new Teryllium T22 Newport pays homage to the overall look, feel and setup of its original design, but with numerous upgrades and improvements – including a stainless steel construction, flat topline, adjustable sole weight, lightly-milled Teryllium insert and new durable tactical matte black finish. 

      • Teryllium T22 Newport 2: Incorporating decades of design refinements, Scotty built the Teryllium T22 Newport 2 in the spirit of the early models – with the soft feel of his Teryllium alloy inlay, but with the modern shape and sole balancing precision of a modern Newport 2 Tour model milled from 303 stainless steel with interchangeable sole weights and a flatter topline. 

      • Teryllium T22 Fastback 1.5: The new Teryllium T22 Fastback 1.5 incorporates a Tour-preferred mini-slant neck, improved four-way sole balancing for a square setup and a thinner topline similar to the Select line’s Fastback model, while maintaining the visual aesthetics of early Teryllium putters – with its familiar black, white and gold color scheme and “domino pattern” in the putter’s back cavity. 

      QUOTING SCOTTY CAMERON 
      “There’s nothing quite like the feel of Teryllium," Cameron said. "It’s the number one material request I get from players. And, as we’ve seen multiple majors won over the past few seasons with a Teryllium-inserted putter, it’s a great time to celebrate this legendary design.   

      “T22 gave us the opportunity to take everything we’ve learned over the past two decades and refine the entire look, feel and performance. Like a modern day muscle car, everything looks original at first glance, but each component is brand new. Better milling. Better materials. Better construction. They’re made to game.” 

      MULTI-MATERIAL CONSTRUCTION 
      Each Teryllium T22 model extends Scotty Cameron’s proven construction methodology of incorporating complementary materials to achieve desired performance characteristics and feel. With a precision milled Teryllium insert expertly designed into the 303 stainless steel putter head, Scotty’s early execution of this concept has been improved upon using modern milling and manufacturing techniques, while preserving the incomparable feel of Teryllium. 

      WEIGHTING & ACCESSORIES 
      Each Teryllium T22 putter features advanced stability weighting with two customizable stainless steel heel-toe sole weights, stepless steel shafts and a custom Limited Release Teryllium headcover and shaft band.   

      A new black Pistolini Plus grip with copper paintfill was designed especially for the T22 release and features a thicker, less tapered low hand. 

      AESTHETICS 
      Inspired by the early Teryllium models, the new Teryllium T22 putters feature a tactical matte black finish with a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare resistant appearance, with metallic gold and white paintfill. The familiar back cavity “domino pattern” is produced by the white vibration dampening elastomer membrane used in the assembly of the Teryllium alloy face inlay. 

      AVAILABILITY 
      Limited Release Teryllium T22 putters will be available worldwide on Aug. 16, 2019, at Titleist authorized golf shops. MAP $599.

      PRESS RELEASE
      PING introduces next generation
      of custom-fit women’s equipment
       
      PHOENIX (July 1, 2019): Advancements in technology, lighter overall club weight, expanded fitting options and premium materials combine to make the new G Le2 family PING’s highest performing women’s clubs to date, the company announced today. The complete line of clubs is available for pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
       
      “The G Le2 represents our continued commitment to providing women golfers of every skill level with premium, high-performance equipment optimized to their swing speeds,” said Stacey Pauwels, PING Executive Vice President and the granddaughter of PING founders Karsten and Louise Solheim, whose role includes overseeing the brand’s women’s initiatives.”
       
      “To achieve one of our performance goals of improving the feel of the club throughout the entire swing, we focused on making the clubs lighter overall,” Pauwels added.  “We integrated our extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes with our proven design technologies to deliver measurable improvements throughout the set. At the same time, we wanted to present the new clubs in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring way. We’re extremely excited about the results and look forward to bringing the G Le2 family to women golfers around the world.”
       
      Custom fit and custom built
      Along with ensuring measurable performance improvements throughout the G Le2 family, PING’s engineering team placed added importance on expanding the fitting options to help women find the ideal set to match their games.
       
      “Having equipment that is custom fitted to their games allows women to see improvement from every club in their bag,” said Pauwels. “The G Le2 family really emphasizes that need through loft, lie and length adjustability along with the shaft weight, flex and grip offerings. Once we know those specifications, finding the best combination of fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges during a fitting is the next step in the process.”
       
      “Because we custom build every club, we want women to know we’ll make them a set that best fits their game,” she said. “The key is determining the ideal set makeup that provides proper distance gaps between each club. That may be a full set or maybe a smaller set of a few metal woods, hybrids, irons, a wedge and a putter. Once we have all their fitting information, we can custom build the clubs to their precise specifications for maximum performance.”
      Lighter, faster, more forgiving driver
       
      The next generation of golf’s highest-performing women’s driver maximizes forgiveness and distance through a higher MOI, faster face and lighter overall weight. Its titanium head features a rounder, more aerodynamic shape to promote faster clubhead speeds. A thin, forged T9S+ face is optimized for the intended swing speed to increase flexing for more ball velocity and improved launch conditions. Internal heel-biased weighting helps ensure straighter ball flights and softer turbulators help frame the ball at address. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 in the G Le2 driver utilizes a new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions for influencing ball flight through loft (±1.5°) adjustments.
       
      Faster faces, higher-launching, adjustable fairway woods
       
      A thinner, faster maraging steel C300 face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results. Internal weighting promotes right-to-left shot correction to keep shots on target. Available in 3, 5, 7 and 9 woods.
       
      Lighter, longer and straighter irons
       
      Precise and forgiving with a lighter overall club weight, G Le2 irons utilize COR-Eye Technology with a deep top-rail undercut to increase face flexing for more ball speed and higher max height. A tungsten toe weight helps increase MOI by 10% for greater forgiveness and a co-molded cavity badge ensures a pleasing feel and sound. Available in 6-9 iron, PW, UW, SW.
       
      Faster face, higher-launching hybrids with more fitting choices
       
      A thinner, hotter Carpenter 455 face and lighter club weight generate faster ball speeds while a lower, deeper CG helps increase the MOI to launch the ball high with greater forgiveness. The addition of a 34⁰ 7 hybrid expands the fitting options for women who prefer the technology of a hybrid in place of an iron. Softer crown turbulators help capture the ball at address and aid in alignment. Available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 hybrids.
       
      Adjustable putters with feel and forgiveness
       
      Enhanced feel and forgiveness and a new adjustable-length shaft improve performance and fitting opportunities in the three new G Le2 putters (Anser, Shea and Echo). A dual-durometer face insert -- engineered with TR face technology -- provides a soft front layer for precision and improved impact feel and a firmer second layer for control to improve consistency on putts of every distance. The easy-to-use adjustable shaft allows self-fitting for length between 31" and 35". A new, softer PP59 midsize grip improves feel and comfort.
       
      Lighter shafts, softer grips
      PING’s proprietary ULT240 Lite and Ultra Lite premium graphite shafts are standard throughout the G Le2 family and help bring down overall club weight while helping generate more clubhead speed and higher launch. The super-soft Golf Pride Tour Velvet Garnet 360 grip is available in three sizes (Blue -1/16", Red -1/32", Aqua -1/64").
