Spider GT

What it does: The Spider line’s re-imagination combines the forgiveness from previous models with the feel and performance of the front-loaded Spider FCG for a best-of-both-worlds putter. 

Why we like it: TaylorMade took a risk by altering the look of one of the most popular putters in the game. But the line’s high-stability lineage and roll-enhancing face are both improved. The GT’s multiple designs use a multi-material approach. The top plate uses light 6061 aluminium that eliminates excess weight in the middle of the putter. Heavy steel weights, plus tungsten, put 82 percent of the weight on the perimeter for help on off-centre strikes. The face insert, which has downward facing grooves that give to promote forward roll, is a touch firmer based on tour and consumer feedback.

Specs 4 models; head weight 350-365 grams; length 33-35 inches

“I love the variety of options. Light and pleasant feel off the face. Lively, but controlled. Ball tracks easily and quickly.”
