unnamedNew Odyssey Milled Collection RSX

Precision Milled Feedback and feel

Today Odyssey Golf has officially announced its new line of Milled Collection RSX Putters, available at retail on July 15.

Our latest path in insert innovation has led us to a deeper exploration of sound and feel. That’s how we’ve come to the Milled Collection RSX, which is milled from 1025 carbon steel, with our best-selling #7 shape, a progressive V-Line Fang mallet, and the #001, a new take on our classic #1 shape.

Phil Mickelson has always told us that when he hits a 5-foot putt, he wants it to look, feel and sound like a 5-foot putt. By engineering our sound chamber technology into these putters, we’ve delivered a crisp sound at impact, which ensures great feedback that matches up perfectly with the speed and roll off the face. And we’ve coupled this with our patented Metal-X roll technology, bringing roll and sound together, as indicated by the RSX name for “roll and sound experiment”.

Features & Benefits

Sound Chamber Technology – The precision milled sound chamber pocket is set behind our 17-4 stainless steel striking surface for great feedback and feel.

Metal-X Insert w/ Stabilizing Crossbar – The 17-4 stainless steel insert has been chemically etched with our patented oval pattern to provide a better roll off the face. The Stabilizing Crossbar helps stabilize sound and feel across the face as well.

Black Powder Coat Shaft – Reduces glare and provides a unique, contemporary look.

Genuine Cabretta Leather Grip – A black genuine Cabretta leather Grip Master grip with a red baseball stitch down the back delivers a premium look with amazing feel.

Pricing: $379.99

Vista, Calif. – June 20, 2016 – Fujikura Golf, recognized for designing and producing the world’s best performance golf shafts, proudly announces the company has been associated with another PGA Tour win.

Fujikura has yet another win on the PGA Tour and this time it’s Major! The U.S. Open proved to be a challenge once again with Oakmont showing its teeth early and often. The champion was able to beautifully navigate his way around the course not only with length (average drive of 316) but also with precision, hitting 64% of fairways all week. His Taylormade Driver with a Fujikura Speeder Evolution 661 was firing on all cylinders as he was 1st in Distance and T- 18th in accuracy. This year’s U.S. Open winner seemed poised and in control all week as Fujikura undoubtedly played a key role in coming out on top against a tough field and even tougher golf course.

“The team at Fujikura wants to congratulate the winner of the U.S. Open on an amazing performance this past weekend. Tough playing conditions, penalty drama, and a strong Sunday leaderboard proved to have all the major excitement we could handle,” commented Fujikura Golf Tour Representative Pat McCoy.
