  • Pro Tip: TaylorMade Spider GT and GTx Putters Offer Stability

    Pro Tip: TaylorMade Spider GT and GTx Putters Offer Stability

    In 2022, TaylorMade Golf released four Spider putters: the TaylorMade Spider GT putters. TaylorMade putters have been iconic for years, since their first release in 2008, and the next iteration in 2023 builds on this popular line.

    The unique Spider club head design provided unparalleled stability, which led to its quick rise in popularity on the PGA and LPGA Tours. Since this distinctive putter hit the shelves, TaylorMade Golf has secured their place as one of the top putter producers in the market, especially with Tour feedback that evolved the design even more.

    Though Taylormade Spider putters began with a mallet design, they carried their high MOI (moment of inertia) design to their Spider blade and mid-mallet putters, providing options for every putter stroke. The 2022 Spider GT and 2023 Spider GTx and GT Max putters fall in the mallet and mid-mallet categories.


    What’s New With the TaylorMade Spider Putters

    The TaylorMade Spider GT putters, GTx and GT Max putters have plenty of new, eye-catching technologies that build upon the famous design.

    TaylorMade GT Putters

    To start, the improved stability comes from perimeter weighting, which also lends itself to more forgiveness and consistent rolls. The dual-tungsten weights are also making their debut, adding even more stability to the putter head.

    The Pure Roll2 face insert enhances the consistency and top spin of the original design, giving you a purer strike more often. The Fluted Feel™ shaft, originally incorporated in 2021, also increases putter stability without sacrificing feel, a breakthrough in golf shaft technology.

    TaylorMade Spider GTx Putter

    In the next iteration of TaylorMade Golf putters, the Spider GTx putter has a similar shape as the GT putters but has more weighting in the back for extra forgiveness. With a more lightweight, aluminum construction and a deeper CG (center of gravity) for more stability, you’ll see the best TaylorMade putter yet for golfers with straighter putting strokes.

    When comparing the TaylorMade GTx vs. GT putters, you’ll notice that both lines have the Pure Roll2 insert and True Path alignment to better manage topspin and aim.

    TaylorMade Spider GT Max Putter

    The TaylorMade Spider GT Max putter has many of the same innovations as the Spider GTx and GT putters, though its claim to fame is TaylorMade Golf’s most adjustable putter yet.

    Still a mallet, the TaylorMade Spider GT Max has several different configurations based on your preferences around CG, face rotation and toe hang. Customizing this TaylorMade putter to your game allows for more accuracy, stability and even a potential draw bias for those who start their line off to the right (if you’re a right-handed golfer).

    Meet the TaylorMade Spider GTx, GT Max and GT Putters

    With so many TaylorMade putters in the latest Spider lines now, let’s break down your options.

    The TaylorMade Spider GTx Putter Pushes Stability to the Extreme

    The TaylorMade Spider GTx putters come with the newer, lighter, more extreme stability innovations mentioned above and with a few different hosel options. Please see the full list below:

    • Small Slant
    • Single Blend
    • Armlock
    • Center Shaft

    These hosel types are also available in a few different colors, so you can choose the best combination for your game and your style.

    You’ll likely see these TaylorMade Spider putters popping up on tour, and this is one bandwagon we don’t mind joining, late or not.


    The TaylorMade Spider GT Max Putter Is Personalized to Your Putting Stroke

    It isn’t often that you find yourself with an adjustable putter, and the TaylorMade GT Max putter is just that. Imagine the depth in which you can alter your setup to fit your game, whether you’re fitting your putting stroke to the putter or boosting your confidence with a quick fix if you keep missing to the right.

    With a more winged-like appearance, there are several combinations of toe hang, face rotation and CG that can give you a special putter just for you.


    The TaylorMade Spider GT Putter Adds Solid Stability to Your Putting Stroke

    The TaylorMade Spider GT putter was the next evolution of the Spider family. With the mallet design already keeping the MOI high on this putter, the focus shifts to perimeter weighting to gain even more stability. Because the weight has been pushed to the sides, you’ll find yourself still hitting solid putts even if you’re a bit off-center. The Pure Roll2 face insert also gives you more consistency on the greens.

    No one says no to consistency, so this putter is advantageous for all handicaps; what matters with putters is your putting stroke. If you have a straight stroke - compared to an arc stroke - mallet putters are for you. With the TaylorMade Spider GT putter, you can still capitalize on all its technology and stability even if you slightly rotate the putter face during your stroke.


    The TaylorMade Spider GT Notchback Putter Adds Consistency to Straight Strokes

    The TaylorMade Spider GT Notchback putter may appeal to your eye more so than the Spider GT. The mid-mallet shape allows for both more putter rotation and more stability, meaning you can have a straight stroke and still find forgiveness on off-center hits.

    Like the Spider GT, this TaylorMade putter also has perimeter weighting and the Pure Roll2 face insert. The design is also better balanced between the putter head and the hosel, allowing those with straight strokes to feel the consistency.


    The TaylorMade Spider GT Rollback Putter Improves Alignment

    The TaylorMade Spider GT Rollback putter is largely the same design as the Spider GT Notchback. However, this design has three lines that allow for easier and more consistent alignment.

    The Spider GT Rollback putter also has some toe hang, which helps those who might pull their putts balance their stroke for more consistent hits. If consistency is a larger issue on the greens, the Spider GT putter may be a better fit since the mallet head is more evenly balanced.


    The TaylorMade Spider GT Splitback Putter Sounds Pure

    The TaylorMade Spider GT Splitback putter takes the Spider GT technology and puts it in a smaller, more compact putter head. The wings still allow weight to be placed in the perimeter for that balanced feel, and the material used in this TaylorMade putter makes the feel and sound pure at impact.

    There is toe hang in this model as well, which means those who have face rotation in their straight putting stroke may find this counterbalance useful if they slightly pull their putts.
