TaylorMade Spider GT Overview

The TaylorMade Spider GT putter is packed with technology to help make you a better golfer on the green. The Spider GT is easily recognizable for its looks and the amount of success seen with them on tour. 

There are four new models, all with a new modern design and an ultra-lightweight top plate for maximum MOI. 

Below, we will go over key features of the Spider GT putter and what we like and don’t like.

Key Features

Top Plate Weighting

The TaylorMade Spider GT putter includes a new 145g aluminum top plate on top of the putter. This new top plate allows weight to be saved and distributed to the perimeter of the putter head for a more balanced strike.

This plate also takes excess weight away from the middle of the putter to eliminate over hitting the ball. On the top of this plate is a small white alignment line to line up each putt quickly. All of this put together creates extreme stability on every hit, even off-center strikes.

Pure Roll 2 Face Insert

Included on the new Spider GT putter is a Pure Roll 2 face insert. The Pure Roll 2 is a firmer insert than TaylorMade uses typically. It is made of black TPU urethane with silver aluminum beams at a 45-degree angle.

The reason for the angle of the face insert is to promote more topspin on your putts which will help keep the ball straight and on line. Although the insert is made of firmer material, the ball still has a very soft feel off the face of the putter.

Fluted Feel Shaft

Another new feature of the Spider GT putter is the introduction of the fluted feel shaft. This is a newly engineered stability putter shaft with a soft section of the shaft located 5 inches from the tip.

The purpose of this is designed to increase the feel and stability of the putter during your putting stroke and improve dispersion.

Steel Side Weight Construction

The new Steel Side weight construction goes hand in hand with the new aluminum plate on the top of the putter. There are 90-gram steel side weights that push 82% of the putter’s total weight to the perimeter of the putter to provide more stability, especially on off-center strikes.

This, along with the aluminum top plate weighting ensures that the majority of the weight is on the perimeter of the putter.

TaylorMade Spider GT Hosel Options

There are two different hosel options when it comes to the new TaylorMade Spider GT putters:

  • Single Bend
  • Short Slant

The short slant design combines with the new perimeter weighting to generate 21 degrees of toe hang for a more vertical angle putting stroke. This will fit golfers with a vertical putting motion that generates moderate face rotation.

The Single Bend design is more standard and will better fit golfers with a traditional straight-back and straight-through putting motion. The best way to know which one fits you better is to head into a golf retailer and practice with both and see which is more comfortable based on your putting stroke.

TaylorMade Spider GT Shafts and Grips

As stated above as one of the key features, the new TaylorMade Spider GT putter comes equipped with a TaylorMade Fluted Feel shaft. This has a soft section on the shaft 5 inches from the tip which provides maximum stability during the putting stroke.

The new Spider GT putter also come pre-equipped with a Super Stroke GT 1.0 Black/Red grip which is definitely one of the most popular putter grips used by amateurs as well as PGA Tour players.

TaylorMade Spider GT Colour Options

If there is one thing that TaylorMade is excellent at doing, it is providing many different colour options when it comes to the new Spider GT putter. TaylorMade has 4 stock colour options available:

  • Silver
  • Black
  • Red
  • White

The colour of your putter all comes down to personal preference and what is more visually appealing to you. Each comes with a white alignment line on the top of the putter head. The White/Light Blue comes standard in the Women’s model and also features a three-dot sightline for alignment instead of the line that comes in the Male versions.

MySpider GT Overview

MySpider GT is an entirely brand new way in customization of a golf club. Using MySpider GT, TaylorMade allows you to choose from hundreds of different colour combinations to create a putter that is truly your own.

Think of it as designing a brand new car and picking its options.

When first starting out the custom build of your Spider GT, you must select either Left Hand or Right Hand putter. Then, you can customize at least 6 other options on the putter

Hosel Options

There are four different hosel options to choose from when first selecting:

  • Single Bend
  • Short Slant
  • Flow Neck
  • L Neck

The Single Bend option is face balanced and will fit best with golfers who have straight back and through putting motions. The Short Slant, Flow Neck and L Neck hosel options each have increasing degrees of toe hang. 

The more face rotation that your putting stroke has, the more toe hang you will need in order to hit center putts consistently. It’s a good idea to head into a golf retailer and practice with a putter with each shaft model in order to see what works best for your putting stroke.

What I Like About the Spider GT

Overall, I really like the Spider GT and there is a reason why it is one of the most popular putters available today.

The feel of the putter is next to none. With the new aluminum weighting plate, it seems to spread the weight around evenly. When I tried out the putter, every single putt felt evenly weighted and the ball went exactly where I needed it to go.

The face insert is both firm and soft at the same time. The ball had a great sound off the face of the putter

The pre-installed Super Stroke GT 1.0 grip is the perfect grip for this putter and would fit any golfer without any customization. This putter is expensive enough, so you don’t need to spend extra on more customization.

What I Don’t Like About the Spider GT

If you already own a Spider GT putter, then the new putter might not be improved enough to warrant an upgrade. The average golfer won’t know the difference between the features of this and the previous Spider putter.

Secondly, the price is quite high for the average golfer. If you are looking to buy a putter for $100 or less, look at an alternative such as a Ray Cook putter.

Finally, the amount of customization options on MySpider may be confusing and overwhelming. That option won’t appeal to everyone.

Conclusion

Overall, the new TaylorMade Spider GT putter has a lot of really nice features. Pure Roll 2 is a great feature that promotes a consistent putting stroke. Side weighting about the putter helps to balance the head nicely.

When you pick up a Spider GT, the whole thing feels premium. It is my favorite putter released this year, along with the new Odyssey Toulon.
