ODYSSEY WHITE HOT RX V-LINE FANG
CATEGORY: Large Mallet Putters
WE TESTED: 34", 35" lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The new White Hot insert has a softer core to enhance feel.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Stress-free lag putting -- consistent speed and distance from everywhere; no hot spots, just a pure roll all across the face; the stable head produces repeatable results all day long.
FEEL: The insert provides a very soft bump at impact, keeps sound to a minimum and lets you know how you hit it; there's a quiet click -- no vibrations to shock your hands.
LOOK: A tester favorite -- multiple alignment features include fangs, two lines on the flange and two smaller dots on the topline, which work beautifully to help you lock down your line; a lovely finish -- handsome and high quality, from every angle.
Some testers prefer a firmer impact feel; not everyone's a fan of the dualfin look; the overall weighting is a little too light for a few panelists.
BOTTOM LINE: The Tour-proven White Hot RX V-Line Fang stacks up well against the competition. It looks great, delivers a cushioned feel at impact and plenty of stability throughout the stroke.
