TaylorMade enhance their Spider putter line
by Carly Frost
August 20, 2014

A year on from their first launch TaylorMade Golf Company has added three new putters to their very successful Spider line.

There is a new Spider Daddy Long Legs, priced at £189, plus the new Spider Blade and Spider Mallet, both priced at £179.

“The new tour-inspired cosmetic is visually stunning, while also delivering the ultimate in stability and performance,” said Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade's director of iron, wedge and putter creation. “Each of these putters promotes an extremely stable putting stroke, to help golfers deliver a consistent roll time after time.”

Daddy Long Legs is the most stable putter in the trio. The high-MOI design resists twisting at impact to protect ball speed on off-centre hits, promoting a reliable roll regardless of where the ball is struck on the face.

The Spider Blade offers the stability of a mallet putter in a blade shape to promote outstanding twist-resistance and distance control on off-centre hits. TaylorMade research indicates that the Spider Blade is 50% more stable than traditional blade-style putters. All three models feature a heavy steel frame, and tungsten heel and toe weights, all designed to raise the MOI to deliver increased head stability.

To optimise counterbalance technology, grip two to three inches below the top end of the grip when assuming a normal stance, posture and address. By doing so, more weight is “above” the golfer's hands, which is key for increasing stroke-stability. Because players should grip down, each new Ghost Spider putter is offered two lengths: 38” and 35”. The 38” is for players who traditionally use a 34”-36” putter, while the 35” option is for players who traditionally use a 32”-34” putter.
