This is an interesting-looking blade style putter. Odyssey has added alignment channels for stability and a higher MOI. It is heel-toe weighted with a "crank-neck" hosel and full-shaft offset. This is Odyssey's Crimson Series. The Crimson Series is very easy to recognize with the red (or crimson) colored insert.
The insert in the Crimson Series Putters is very firm. It is called the "Crimson Stronomic." It is a co-molded ground polymer face. Odyssey makes the face flush by forming the insert directly in the face cavity and then grounding it.
I like the design of this putter head. It's simply a blade with a couple of wings on it. I really like the straight lines formed by the wings. This, in addition with the line on the clubhead for alignment, makes this putter very easy to line up square to the target.
Unfortunately, that is where my love for this putter ends. The Crimson series is the cheapest of the Odyssey lines, and it falls short of what I expect in an Odyssey putter. The insert is too hard, and the red color is ugly. Likewise, the stainless steel putter head looks shoddy.
I recommend you check out the Odyssey White Hot XG #7 Putter. This is a similar style putter, but with a higher MOI. It is better looking, and the White Hot XG series insert is softer and provides a much better feel than the Crimson series.
