New TaylorMade Spider Tour Small Slant Putter
Who’s It For?
Over the last couple of decades, TaylorMade Spider putters have spearheaded a revolution in putter design and construction. Sure, there’s still a large contingent of golfers that prefer a traditional blade-style putter. But the percentage of golfers playing a high-MOI mallet style putter continues to grow, and much of that movement can be attributed to the many iterations of TaylorMade Spider putters. New in 2023 is the TaylorMade Spider Tour Series of putters, which features eight total models (four different head shapes) all designed to provide high MOI and exceptional stability. The Spider Tour Small Slant model has 29 degrees of toe hang and is designed for golfers with a moderate arc in their putting strokes.
The Tech Story
The TaylorMade Spider Tour Series putters include a number of technologies ultimately created to deliver exceptional forgiveness and stability. A new Thin Wall Undercut Construction removes excess weight to further improve MOI, while a Steel Wireframe allows engineers to better control weight distribution and the center of gravity location. Meanwhile, TSS weights provide balanced weighting and help optimize performance for each model. To improve the feel, TaylorMade implemented its HYBRAR Echo dampener behind the face to dampen unwanted vibrations and ultimately deliver superb sound and feel. The face insert itself is what TaylorMade calls a White TPU Pure Roll insert and it’s made from a combination of Surlyn and aluminum. The grooves on the insert are angled at 45 degrees to encourage optimal forward roll immediately upon impact. Additionally, True Path Alignment technology is visible on each putter head at address, designed to help golfers line up their putts correctly through better visual clarity. The Spider Tour Series includes two hosel shapes. The Small Slant hosel produces toe hang that will fit a moderate arc, while the Double Bend hosel is face-balanced and will fit a straight-back, straight-through stroke.
