TaylorMade Spider S putters are the latest release in the popular series with even more game enhancing improvements made in what is the most forgiving design yet.
TaylorMade have honed the already popular Spider series and come up with the S design, with the focus on the latest release being on the weighting and stability for which it gets its name.
The mallet-style Spider S putters are available in two colour options – white, or chalk as it is described, and navy blue, and both come with a high MOI of more than 6,000 for increased forgiveness while promoting consistent ball striking off the face.
What TaylorMade said:
“With Spider S, we utilise advanced materials and machine milling to create the highest MOI and most forgiving model in our Spider lineup,” TaylorMade’s senior director of product creation of putters and wedges Bill Price said.
“The beauty and performance of this putter is in all of the tungsten. We use more than 150g in each head to deliver precision weighting and optimal performance.”
TaylorMade Spider S Putters Design
The Spider S putters come in a unique mallet design, with a tungsten backbar resulting in an almost hollow square shape to the putter head.
The idea behind the Spider S is perfecting the weighting and the backbar helps achieve that due to the fact it can be inserted as 55g, 65g and 80g weights to offer variety.
Also helping achieve the ideal balance are two 48g tungsten sole weights placed on the toe and the heel, while the putter head is made from aluminium in a change from the Spider X.
TaylorMade’s Pure Roll insert is also present in the Spider S, but is 5mm thicker to provide a better sound as well as more forward roll than in previous models.
The Spider S putters come in three shaft lengths – 33, 34 or 35 inches.
Spider S Putters Verdict
The Spider series have proved extremely popular with Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day among the players to have used previous versions.
The S offers the kind of stability that every golfer craves and the work that has gone in to perfect the weighting will only benefit golfers looking to hole even more putts.
The variety of options when it comes to the weight of the backbar means getting the right Spider S to suit your putting stroke should be more possible than ever before.
