Carlsbad, CA - A few years back several smaller tier manufacturers began to offer chippers, club that looked a wedge and had the feel of a putter. Just this week long-time putter manufacturer Odyssey entered the fray with the introduction of its X-Act Tank Chippers.
The X-Act Tank Chipper is designed to function like an approach putter, providing an easy-to-hit short game option that helps promote more consistent contact. It’s a great choice for players who want to improve around the greens, and get up and down more often.
The X-Act features a Heavy Tank design that helps to ensure a smoother swing to promote more consistent contact. Plus, it offers a heavier grip gives a counterbalance feel that helps quiet the hands through impact.
The hybrid-like sole design of the X-Act improves turf interaction around the green, especially on tight lies, to help eliminate stubbed or bladed chip shots. Then add in the single layer polymer insert and you have a chipper that provides soft feel for both long and short shots around the green.
This club also features two alignment stripes running the length of the club that make lining up shots easier for better accuracy. The X-Act also comes with an oversized, non-taper grip design helps stabilize the wrists and hands through impact. The longer design also allows you to put your hands in different positions to get the correct feel on a variety of shots.
Look for the X-Act Tank Chipper to hit your local retailer by mid-July, with a suggested retail price of $129.99.
