New Tank line is designed to provide Ultimate Stability
Callaway’s newest addition to the alternative category is called Tank. It comes in short and long options and features specifically weighted components with a Tour preferred balance point for a higher MOI and greater stability through impact. One of the main reasons Odyssey is able to achieve this level of stability is the total club MOI. Short options have a total club MOI that’s 34% higher than a standard putter, and for long options it’s 109% higher than a standard putter.
Stability weighting and a heavier head and shaft quiet the hands during the stroke to provide consistent control while a double barrel alignment clearly frames the golf ball at address. This added weight engages the big muscles to promote a more pendulum stroke that helps keep the wrists from breaking down, even on shorter putts.

Counterbalance Stability Weighting
The Tank putter uses a counterbalance weight, heavier head (400g) and heavier shaft (150g) to quiet the hands during the stroke. The added weight raises MOI to create more stability through impact, and engages your big muscles to promote a more pendulum stroke that keeps the wrists from breaking down.
Total Club MOI with Increased Weight
One of the main reasons Odyssey is able to achieve a greater level of stability is the total club MOI. The short options (34” and 36” putters) have a total club MOI that is 34% higher than a standard putter with a 19% increase in total club weight. The long options (38” and 40” putters) have a total club MOI that is 109% higher than a standard putter with a 32% increase in total club weight.
Tour Preferred Balance Point
The balance point is lower on the shaft, providing a more conventional approach that Tour players prefer.
New and improved White Hot insert
New and improved White Hot Pro insert is highly engineered for more consistent sound, feel and performance.
Tank is making its debut on the professional tours this week and Callaway staffer Nicolas Colsaerts has already put one in play for the WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral.
