How it performs
What I was looking for
I prefer mallet putters more than any other type of putter, so I wanted to give the Odyssey 2-Ball Ten Triple Track a try. Second, I am a feel putter, so I wanted something with a soft face that would allow me to more consistently feel the putt through contact. I also like that this putter is aesthetically pleasing.
Why I chose this club
I tested this club because I currently play an Odyssey EXO 7 mallet putter and wanted to see how it compared. I loved everything it had to offer, especially the weight, face feel, grip, and overall performance. I was very consistently making my 5 to 10-footers as well as consistently lagging my 25-plus-footers into a very makeable second putt.
What I love about it
- Face Feel: The technology used in the face includes a balancing feature that really allows me to feel the club striking the ball. This gave me more confidence to make more putts.
- Forgiveness: Even when the putt isn’t struck perfectly, it still rolls pure. It allows shorter putts to hold their line and farther putts to lag their way close to the hole. This is in large part due to the microhinge insert that creates more consistent forgiveness for all putts.
- Weight: The weight is ideal for my preference. At 365g I have good control on both short and long putts. For other preferences, weight adjustments are available in the form of two 15-gram weights which can be added.
- Alignment: The club boasts sharp alignment with its triple lines and one red line down the middle of the club head when viewed from above.
- Aesthetic Appeal: This putter is pleasing to the eye so pulling it out of the bag is a nice feeling. From the steel shaft down to the mallet head, the design really makes the putter stand out.
- Grip Feel: Grip feel was solid. The 2-Ball Ten Triple Track has a pistol oversized grip which is comfortable regardless of hand placement.
Issues I’ve encountered
- Customization: I would have liked to see how a 34-inch putter would have performed as I fluctuate between that and 35 inches as being my preferred length of putter. I wasn’t able to test a 34-inch as they did not have any in stock.
Best putt or round with this putter
During my testing session I was averaging around a 90% make rate within seven feet and only three-putted once on putts outside of 25 or more feet.
Value for the money vs. other options
I think the 2-Ball Ten Triple Track is worth the money. I tried both the DFX Seven and the DFX 2-Ball putters by Odyssey, which are cheaper options, but they weren’t as forgiving and the face didn’t have the same feel. For serious golfers, I think it would be worth it to spend the extra money for this difference.
This putter will add more confidence to a golfer's game on the greens, especially when lagging those long putts close. It could also be helpful in assisting them make more putts within that knee-knocker range of 5 to 10 feet. Ultimately, the mid-to-low handicapper looking to take their game to the next level should definitely consider putting this club in their bag.
