The Spider S putter from TaylorMade is manufactured from high-grade 6061 aluminum and 100 pe rcent machine milled for precision shaping.
The square-frame putter head is outfitted with two 48 g tungsten sole weights that are strategically placed on the toe and the heel to help stabilize the putter while also optimizing centre of gravity location.
A heavy tungsten backbar is used to further customize swing weight based on the length of the putter.
Coming in 55 g, 65 g and 80 g units, the backbar at the rear of the putter is designed to influence head weight, feel and performance. The heaviest weight (80g) pairs with the shortest putter length (33 inches) and vice versa.
The combination of advanced materials and square shaping promotes high MOI for increased forgiveness and consistent roll on strikes across the face. With an MOI of 6,000-plus, Spider S offers the most forgiving performance of any model in the Spider franchise.
Completing the design is the Pure Roll Insert. With Spider S, the company opted for a thicker 5 mm surlyn insert designed for better sound, feel and roll characteristics.
“With Spider S, we utilize advanced materials and machine milling to create the highest MOI and most forgiving model in our Spider lineup,” said TaylorMade senior director of production for putters and wedges Bill Price.
“The beauty and performance of this putter is in all of the tungsten. We use more than 150 g in each head to deliver precision weighting and optimal performance,” said Price.
Spider S will be available at retail beginning February 14 with an MSRP of $449.99 Cdn.
Available lengths include 33, 34 and 35 inches and Spider S is offfered in two different colourways: Navy and Chalk. It also comes equipped with the KBS Stepless Stability Shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip.
