Odyssey intro Toulon Design Putters
Into Europe for first time
Odyssey has announced the European introduction of Toulon Design Putters, a premium line of performance–driven products, which bring together the best in look, sound, feel and technology.
Already featuring in the Tour bags of Callaway Staff Professionals including Thomas Pieters, Pablo Larrazabal and Michelle Wie, Toulon Design Putters will be available (with extensive Tour–level custom fitting options), in a select number of Callaway Preferred Retailers across the European region from September 15, 2017.
The line includes seven models – five blades (Madison, Austin, Columbus, Long Island and San Diego) and two face–balanced mallets (Memphis and Indianapolis).
“Building a better-performing putter takes imagination, intelligence, focus, precision and experience. In our quest to manufacture the best, we focused on creating harmony between sound, feel and roll, ensuring they’re all in sync to maximise performance,” commented Sean Toulon, Senior Vice President/General Manager of Putters, Callaway Golf.
One of the key visible features of each Toulon Design Putter is the new Deep Diamond Mill face pattern, precision–milled into the hitting surface of each soft 303 stainless steel head. This new, innovative pattern effectively channels impact vibration away from your ears to produce a slightly softer, yet still crisp, solid sound with incredible feel.
“The centre of the putter is where the engine of performance resides and our Deep Diamond Mill pattern is the result of lengthy and strenuous prototyping and testing with 25 different milling patterns,” added Toulon.
One of the most visually striking designs in the 2017 Collection - Indianapolis - is a super–high MOI mallet inspired by the sleek beauty and envelope-pushing performance of Indy cars past and present.
It combines a uniquely beautiful and highly functional shape with Deep Diamond Mill technology to promote great feel, smooth, accurate roll and keen distance–control across a large part of the face.
All Toulon Design Putters feature adjustable sole plate technology that allows golfers to easily alter the weight of the head from approximately 350g all the way up to 390g (depending on the model). The sole plates of the blades and the Memphis models are fully CNC milled from Aluminum (7g), Stainless Steel (20g) or Tungsten (40g) to allow the golfer to get the head weight they desire.
Whilst the Indianapolis model features two interchangeable tungsten tip weights available in 25g, 35g, or 45 options.
In addition, by marrying adjustable sole plate technology with SuperStroke CounterCore weight options (25g or 50g) every Toulon putter can be easily counterbalanced.
Combining a 20g sole weight with a 25g CounterCore weight in the SuperStroke grip produces a ‘Moderate Release’ set–up that allows for a pronounced releasing of the club head. Whereas the 40g tungsten sole weight with a 50g CounterCore weight in the SuperStroke grip produces an ‘Aggressive Release’ setup for an even more pronounced releasing of the club head.
Other stock grip options on Toulon Design Putters will include Lamkin Pistol, SuperStroke Pistol GT Tour and SuperStroke 2.0.
All putters are available in 33in, 34in and 35in shaft lengths. The Memphis, San Diego, Madison and Indianapolis models are also offered in a left–hand option.
