I got this putter as an upgrade from the Taylormade Rossa Itsy Bitsy Spider, and I cant believe the difference. The added weight towards the grip definitely provides the advertised increase in stability. It has the feel and weight of a mallet putter with all the clean lines of the blade that it is. The perfect blend of two completely different styles. The feel of the insert is pretty standard. It wont blow you away, but its definitely competetive with those from other manufacturers. Distance on well struck putts is extremely predictable, and the balance is absolutely remarkable. If you currently play a mallet or any other variant of a large putter for stability but like the look of a classic blade, look no further!!! Taylormade has knocked it out of the park with this club. Possibly the best putter on the market with a very competitive price point.
This putter was really one of my first real putter purchases. I was given a putter when just starting and now decided to try a bunch out to figure out what would be best for me. After spending a couple of days testing, many of which were odyssey putters and almost going with a white hot pro, I spent an hour putting with both and was consistently more accurate with the spider blade. This putter really does the job!
