What TaylorMade says about the new Spider GT Max putter:

“The most powerful part of the game will always be putting. It has the power to save rounds, to get people on their feet and to win championships.

“That’s why we pushed the limits of technology and craftsmanship with the all-new Spider GT Max – the most adjustable putter ever created by TaylorMade.

“Spider GT Max introduces a new level of adjustability and performance.

“Two 40g sliding tungsten weights can be easily positioned to influence CG, toe hang and face rotation, helping you offset your mis-hit tendencies.

“Position 1 – Corrective performance for golfers who tend to miss putts left. Position 2 – Versatility and performance similar to Spider X. Position 3 – Corrective performance for golfers who miss putts right.

TaylorMade Spider GT Max Specs & Design

The GT Max putter builds on the Spider GT range but brings complete adjustability to the table in the most complete TaylorMade mallet yet.

Using the popular fang design, TaylorMade have added two 40g tungsten weights to the outer edge which can each be slid into one of three positions.

The weighting can be altered to adjust the CG, toe hang and face rotation of the GT Max and prevent you from missing left or right – whichever your bad shot is.

The mallet itself is made of lightweight 6061 aluminum with a hollowed-out core, and the savings in weight have meant that the heavy sliding weights could be positioned on the perimeter for stability and forgiveness.

The putter features TaylorMade’s PureRoll² technology in the face with the TPU urethane insert combined with aluminium beams to produce consistent ball strikes and roll.
