Odyssey released the first Stroke Lab putters in early 2019 and after adding one to his bag, Francesco Molinari won the Arnold Palmer Bay Hill Invitational. Stroke Lab putters have also been used by Xander Shauffele and Phil Mickelson. Odyssey, the putter arm of Callaway Golf, is now set to release two new Stroke Lab mallets, the Ten Black and the Bird of Prey, that feature an updated look and face technology.

Both putters come standard with Odyssey’s multi-material Stroke Lab shaft. The center section of the shaft is made using graphite, which is about 40 grams lighter than steel but very stiff. Some of the saved weight is then redistributed to the head, but most of it has been shifted under handle portion of the shaft. The result, according to Odyssey’s research, is the heavier heads are more stable and the re-balanced clubs help golfers make higher-quality putting strokes more often.

The Stroke Lab Ten Black and Bird of Prey also have been given an updated face insert. The Microhinge Star insert was originally made for tour players who wanted a firmer feeling at impact than the standard Microhinge or White Hot Microhinge insert. However, it still features a series of metal hinges that compress and grab the ball at impact before releasing it and encouraging a forward roll after the strike.

The Stroke Lab Ten Black has a square shape and single white alignment line that contrasts with the putter’s dark finish. In the back of this mid-size mallet, Callaway has added a sole weight until the heel and toe extensions, which increases the moment of inertia and boost stability.

The Bird of Prey has a similarly designed front section, but a more triangular shape in the back. Like the Ten, it features a single white alignment line, but there is only a single weight in the center of the sole.
