Love it
Putter has everything I have grown to love about Odyssey. I play often enough to know putting is all about confidence and when setting up with this putter on those 5 footers It seems to line up itself. On the downside it does take getting use to on the longer putts.
ProsEasy to line up. Putter face is hot so shorter back stroke
ConsIf I had to choose one it would be hard to get speed for longer putts

Built in forward press!
This makes a lot of sense. Forward press with the back of your left hand (conventional grip) facing & going towards the target during the stroke. Helps keep the angle of the right wrist established at setup.
ProsHelps forward press
Consa little diffrent system

A good putter
I have used this putter for 5 rounds now and I am really liking it. My accuracy has improved and the ones I miss are left very close to the hole.
Pros-Easy alignment -Good feel
Consthe only downside to me is that the club is a little bulky when in the putter tube on my bag. It's in the way when I try to get to my wedge's

Great Buy
First day out with my new putter was round one of our club's strokeplay championship.What a day ! 8 one putts, two from the fringe of the green and one forty footer from the front of the green.Absolutely love it.
ProsLining up is easy and the angle of the shaft makes it easy to stroke the ball which rolls beautifully.

love this putter
Alignment is the best of the many putters I have purchased. No longer pulling putts to the left being right handed. Balance and feel are great especially for someone prefers a straight back and forth stroke. Lagging my long putts much closer and four footers are almost automatic. Great forward press set up for consistent ball roll. Virtually eliminates the hop and skip.
Prosalignment feel balance great roll consistent sound
ConsI prefer a fatter grip but that can be replaced easily

A Steal
the wight and look of this putter is just what I was looking for
Prosalignment marks on top make putting a breeze weight of putter head is spot on not too light not too heavy
Conssweet spot is smaller than the ball to elaborate when looking at bottom of club where the insignia is the width is less than the ball at address will ultimately make me a better putter but at first look its intimidating

Looks Funny, Highly effective!
I bought this club for my 11 year old little brother who struggles with the standard mallet putter. He is putting much better with this beast. This putter has a huge head so someone like me who is used to a Ping G2 style will probably have a hard time adjusting. Super hot off the face. Alignment aid works perfectly. Weight feels very nice!

Odyssey Backstryke Marxman Putter
I thought the putter was well balanced and it felt very "crisp" when I struck the ball.
ProsThe feel of "crispness" when striking the golf ball.
ConsThe ball accelerated much faster off the club face than I was use to with other putters.

Great Putter
I've never tried a mallet putter before and got this on a whim after reading reviews that it really helped with short and pulled putts. All I can say is that the advice was right. It's just about impossible to pull a putt using this putter, and the alignment and weight have made anything inside 4 feet a gimme. My natural putting stroke is "in to out" (which accounts for the pulls) but the setup of this putter forces me to bring the club head back straighter. I still need to work on the longer lag putts some more, but this putter is all I wanted. It also gets a really good roll through the fringe grass, I guess because of the forward press.
ProsCan't pull putts like I often used to. Brilliant alignment

Odyssey Back Stryke Marxsman
The putter feels very balanced and my sub 6ft putting has improved considerably with this putter. The putter promotes a very true putting stroke and I find it easy to hit the ball squarely with this club.
ProsPrice was great Weight of the head and balance
ConsAngle of striking takes a bit of getting used to but is more reliable for me rather than the conventional putter design

In the Cup!
Well I am legally blind and the Backstryke Marxman really help me get a line on my putts. What's nice for me is that my long 'lag' putts get me a lot closer than my old putter, because of the lines on the backstryke act 'for me' like sights to the cup. 2 putts are almost automatic now...and within 4 ft it’s like a 'give me' automatic in the cup. Also the ball seems to roll off the Backsrtke with ease. A real a nice feel.

Good Feel
I love the feel of the ball as it comes off of the insert. Angled face helps get the ball rolling with good top spin. Grip is not to my liking so I will replace that in the next week or so. I used a Winn jumbo grip on my previous putter and liked it. Played 18 with my swing coach and he tried and loved the putter.
ProsInsert gives great feel Angled face

Great feel and roll
The weight of the putter head combined with the forward press of your hands promotes a true roll of the ball everytime. Having the shaft in the back of the putter head lets you easily align your putts from start to finish.

Great Service & Price
I couldn't pass up the sale price of the Odyssey putter. Shipped very quickly. The putter was a strange design with the hosel at the back and the alignment at the front of the putter. After using this putter and practising it works well, easy set up for alignment and a great feel off the face.

Backstryke Marxman
Unique putter that I'm still on the fence about. I like the mallet style, but have not decided if this putter is right for me. I've only played 2 rounds with her, so I don't want to kick her out of bed just yet. The rear/center shaft alignment is nice to look at from address, but my putting motion seems to be off with this. I did change the grip right away to a Winn Jumbo pistol.

Love this putter
I bought this putter on a whim from RBG because the sale price (around $59 inc shipping) was too good to pass up. I wanted to try something other than my Rossi. I am really glad I did. I'm a low nineties golfer trying to find the eighties, and truly, putting is my least favorite part of golf. Something about this putter (the offset shaft, the shape/alignment, the balance) makes me more comfortable than I have ever been. I've had my best 3 or 4 round of putting ever. I'm not one to write reviews, but I'm really really pleased with this putter.

Now I can putt
I love this putter! This is the second center shaft putter I have owned and the way this one lines up is amazing. 4-5 foot putts are not a problem. Anything under 12 feet is practically a "gimmie". I could not be happier with the results I have gotten from this putter. Not to mention RBG has this putter at least $20.00 less than anybody else. What a bargain. Don't let the look scare you. This club makes putting easy.

Well worth a try
A few people comment and say geez I can't hit that funny looking thing, you get them to take 3 putts and when all 3 roll beautifully they start asking a few more questions and drop the attitude pretty quick. It does promote a quick forward roll and performs beautifully, and now there are a few heads to choose from you should be able to find one you like
