Odyssey White Hot Tour #7 Heavy Putter
“The Fang,” a tour-quality mallet putter, is made by the industry leader in golf putters, Odyssey Golf. Formally called the Odyssey White Hot Tour #7 Heavy Putter
, but nicknamed “the fang” for its distinctive look, this putter features Odyssey’s distinguishing White Hot core material, which is designed with multiple layers for a soft feel and superior consistency.
The putter’s most noticeable feature is its winged design; the weighted wings serve to assist with alignment. However, what players do not see is nearly as important: innovations like the double bend shaft, full offset, and carefully designed striking surface. Ultimately, reviews have praised the White Hot Tour #7 for its confidence-inspiring design and tour quality.
Odyssey’s White Hot Putter series currently includes a total of four putters, each designed with Odyssey’s White Hot Tour core, an elastomer material with two layers. The use of two materials improves the feel and control of the putter. The odd shape of the putter’s head is designed with a purpose; its weighted alignment wings shifts the weight to the perimeter of the head, which allows for superior forgiveness.
Finally, the putter features another classic Odyssey innovation, a very finely covered striking surface for easy identification of the sweetspot and impeccable responsiveness., and its steel-colored finish reduces glare. Altogether, this putter is engineered to provide increased performance through stability and control. Both right-handed and left-handed versions are available in 33 inch, 34 inch, and 35 inch lengths; each putter includes Odyssey’s manufacturer warranty.
Reviews of the Odyssey White Hot Tour #7 Heavy Putter praise its three “C’s”: consistency, control, and confidence. Designed to place tour quality in the hands of casual golfers, this putter truly delivers; most reviews found that it increased their performance on the course.
While many players are initially drawn to this putter because of its unusual shape, most quickly adapted to its weighting and found that the putter had a natural feel; for one reviewer, “The White Hot #7 felt as though it was part of my body. It was as if the putter was an extension to my arm.” Its heavier weight has also been a noted feature, and reviews found that they were able to use a more natural swing and let the putter do the work. For new and improving players, Odyssey has provided a better feeling and more accurately performing putter in the White Hot #7.
