Odyssey’s new SRT Tri-Ball putter uses a high-density alloy ring to move the center of gravity deep and back from the face of the putter. The high moment of intertia with this design helps you move the putter straight back, and straight through. The putter also takes the 2-ball alignment system one better by creating a three ball alignment system (a two ball system will be available later this spring).
I don’t think there’s been a more imitated idea in putter design than the two ball alignment system. Go to any golf show with a lot of independent golf club makers and you will find dozens of imitation two ball clubs.
The design, however, isn’t entirely original. Golfsmith had the Snake Eyes Strikeline ML with an orbital ring two years ago. I have played that putter for some time and think that its wonderful. You can find a review here.
Like the rest of the successful White Steel product line, the White Steel Tri-Ball SRT Putter face features Dual Insert Technology, which combines a modified White Hot(R) urethane insert with a milled stainless steel insert for the precision and accuracy of steel with the feel and distance control of urethane.
The new White Steel Tri-Ball SRT Putter is face balanced, has a half-shaft offset and is available in both right-and left-handed models in 33-, 34-, 35- and 36-inch lengths. It will be available at retail February 1, 2006 with an MSRP of $249.
