The Red Ball Design
The visualputting aid is the simplest that you’ll find, even though other putters feature similar concepts. The red ball is positioned on the sole, and it protrudes through a round scope that is positioned on the crown of the putter. When you are at the address, you are supposed to see the red ball in the center of the scope in a perfect position. This means that your body posture is correctly positioned for a precise putt, and your eyes are looking at the right spot. In case the bottom part of the ball can’t be seen, this is an indication that you are keeping your eyes much more inside the putting line, so you need to approach it until you see the ball centered in the scope.
Golfers agree that this is the most fun to use alignment aid, and it is an excellent putting tool for those golfers who need extra putting aid or the players who need to practice body, hand and eye position whilst putting. However, before you completely rely on the ball system, make sure that the sole lies on a flat surface as it can misguide you completely otherwise.
Talking about a well-designed putter, the Odyssey Red Ball putter has all the rights to be called one of the best in its category. The empty central portion and the excessively high MOI put it into the mallet-style category. The larger head design and the weight shift from the center to the edge of the head increases its stability and balance. This means more confidence for high handicappers as the overall design speaks forgiveness and enhanced performance.
The striking color contrast of black and white, the white being positioned at both face ends as well as the white perpendicular central line, help golfer square the ball and hardly miss a putt. Many golfers say that they love the color contrast which doesn’t look at all distracting as some similar putters tend to be within this category.
There’s a little drawback that we need to mention when it comes to the White Hot insert though. The meshed design is thus designed so that it gets caught blades of grass, which might distract those golfers who tend to get all neat and clean. The 3-degree loft on the face seems a little to get the face hidden at address, however, it isn’t distracting, so you can still produce good putts.
The Odyssey Red Ball putter features larger clubhead and higher MOI, the two characteristics of a very forgiving putter. This means, when golfers hit off the sweet spot, the speed of the ball is likely to stay the same and result in a nice putt. The White Hot insert delivers hot and soft feel which have been happily accepted by the golfers worldwide. In addition to good feel and sound, it is also well-balanced, so you’ll be practically guided by it, with great control and accuracy. This makes it a very playable model which goes in line with player’s comments who say that it has helped them shove off some strokes.
Yet, the greatest highlight of the putter is the red alignment ball that helps golfers practice and achieve correct body posture, focus their eyes on the ball and produce precise putts. In addition to the red ball, there is a white perpendicular line that helps golfers align the ball even better. It is a wonderful putter that delivers maximized performance.
