Odyssey released its multi-material Tri-Hot 5K line last year and now the family of putters have got a 2023 addition - mallets. The line now includes 12 models (seven of which are brand new for this year).
Callaway said: "We developed Tri-Hot 5K with an audacious goal, to create a new putter construction for a complete shift in performance. Focusing on blade designs, we’ve moved the CG positioning forward and leveraged new materials in ways that have never been realised in a putter. Stainless steel, tungsten, and 6061 aircraft grade aluminum have all been meticulously crafted to re-invent what a blade can accomplish.
For our next goal, we wanted to achieve that same goal with mallets. Using our proven Tri-Hot formula, we’ve significantly raised the head’s inertia while also moving the CG forward. The result is a more forgiving and better performing mallet. By applying large amounts of tungsten, we’ve developed an inertia level exceeding 5000 IZZ for incredible forgiveness, all while moving the CG closer to the face.
This combination promotes improved performance in speed control, spin control, speed consistency on off-center hits and a much tighter downrange dispersion versus conventional blades. We’ve changed how a putter is constructed and reinvented how a putter can perform."

Benefits and features of the Odyssey Tri Hot 5K line
High Performance and Tight Dispersion from Stainless Steel Front
Built to improve performance by reducing the amount of side spin on off-center hits, resulting in putts that are closer to the original line, with tighter dispersion, and a greater chance to go in on less-than-perfect strikes. This was achieved through a 303 stainless steel front section that includes the hosel and face area. The back section of these putters has been finish milled to exact shape and weight, helping to keep the CG forward.
Improved Forgiveness and Improved Roll From Tungsten Front Weights
Odyssey have precisely positioned massive amounts of tungsten (up to 120 grams) behind the face in the toe and heel sections of the club head. The CG is moved forward for improved roll, while also increasing inertia to over 5,000 IZZ. It’s an improved level of performance that’s now available in new standard size mallets.
Interchangeable Front Weights
Available in 5, 10, 15 and 20 grams these removable weights allow you to dial in your head weight to your exact preference.
Legendary White Hot insert
The popular insert is back with the original formulation, feel, sound, and performance.
Red Stroke Lab Shaft
The newest generation of Odyssey's proven multi-material Stroke Lab shaft features even better performance. The Stroke Lab shafts are a staple in professional golf with wins across all global Tours.
