Odyssey expanded its Versa and White Hot Pro putter lines on Monday with
the addition of two new high-MOI putters called Versa Jailbird and White Hot Pro
Versa Jailbird is a high MOI mallet that looks very similar to the Versa
#7. The big difference between the Versa #7 and Jailbird is the addition of a
bar on the back of the head that gives the putter "Double Versa
According to Odyssey, the additional line — last year's Versa had three
black-and-white lines — gives the putter four alternating black-and-white lines
that allow "the golfer's eyes to key in on linear designs on the putter that
accentuate the face angle and contributes to better alignment."
Havok, a member of the White Hot Pro family, is an "ultra-high MOI" putter
that has a lower, deeper CG that creates forward roll, improves distance control
and provides added stability through the stroke. Havok comes with Odyssey's new
non-glare, gunmetal PVD finish.
Jailbird ($170) and Havok ($160) both feature Odyssey's improved White Hot
Pro insert and will be available in January.
