A Putter With Spider Tour Platform
TaylorMade Golf has released a new putter. The Spider Mini features a wingless design to deliver the performance characteristics of the original Spider Tour putters in a more streamlined, minimalistic design.
The new Spider Mini putter is built on the Spider Tour platform, but without the “wings” on the back. TaylorMade is aiming this putter at golfers who are seeking a mallet-style putter with a sleeker look.
Compared to the Spider Tour, the Spider Mini has undergone a 15% reduction in head size. The putter is claimed to deliver the same stability and high MOI properties as its bigger sibling. The smaller head size is said to make the release of the putter head easier through the hitting area of the stroke; more similar to that of a blade putter. The Spider Mini also boats the Tour-proven Pure Roll insert: the grooves of the insert are angled at 45 degrees to promote better forward roll.
Redesigned steel weights have been cast directly into the putter’s head to provide precise and consistent balance. Derived from Tour player feedback, the new T-sightline encourages proper alignment and a square clubface.
The Spider Mini is available in two colours: Tour Red and Diamond Silver. The putter comes in lengths of 33, 34, and 35 inches.
