The new Spider GT Max putter features two 40g sliding tungsten weights that can be easily positioned to influence centre of gravity, toe hang and face rotation.
This design allows TaylorMade to cover the CG ranges of nearly all preceding mallet-style Spiders while simultaneously helping to minimize mis-hit tendencies for specific putting strokes.
For players who tend to miss putts to the left, placing the weights in Position 1 (farthest back) slows down the face rotation.
For players who miss to the right, Position 3 (farthest forward) helps the face close faster.
If you don’t have a consistent miss and are looking for versatility, Position 2 offers a neutral option. Spider GT Max is designed to let golfers adapt the putter to fit their stroke and improve accuracy on the greens.
“We encourage golfers to spend time observing their putting tendencies. By knowing where you often miss, you can set the weights on Spider GT Max to counteract your tendencies and help you hit putts on target with greater consistency. Why adjust your putting motion when you can adjust your putter?” Said Bill Price, director of product creation, putters and wedges.
Spider GT Max comes in a silver anodized finish with TaylorMade’s renowned True Path technology. The lightweight, fully machined aluminum body gives the putter a premium look from address with much better durability than painted putter heads.
The steel sole plate and sliding tungsten weights are finished with a durable black PVD finish. Spider GT Max is offered in two hosel configurations (short slant and single bend), allowing golfers to choose offsets and toe hangs to suit their stroke.
Spider GT Max will be available at retail in late spring with an MSRP of $579.99 Cdn. Available lengths include 34 and 35 inches in small slant and single bend hosel options.
