TaylorMade Spider S Putter - Looks and Feel

The looks - especially in the Chalk White colour we tested - are as a strong as anything we have ever seen in the successful Spider franchise before. It's also available in Navy. 

This TaylorMade Spider Putter possesses a Tour-proven Pure Roll Insert that makes a beautiful, soft, pop sound at impact that keeps you coming back for more. 

With the Spider S Putter, the company has opted for a thicker 5mm surlyn insert designed for better sound, feel and roll characteristics.

Its square-frame putter head is outfitted with two 48g tungsten sole weights that are strategically placed on the toe and the heel to help stabilise the putter while also optimising CG location.

A heavy tungsten backbar is used to further customise swing weight based on the length of the putter.

Coming in 55g, 65g and 80g units, the backbar at the rear of the putter is designed to influence head weight and feel. The heaviest weight (80g) pairs with the shortest putter length (33 inches) and vice versa.

The feel of the KBS Black Stability Shaft also aids it in the feel stakes, ensuring less deflection at impact and providing you with a much more stable stroke through the ball. 

In terms of alignment, the putter frames the ball perfectly with its three-line system and hole in the middle. It makes lining this putter up a piece of cake. 

The stock SuperStroke grip aids comfort, and worked nicely for our pencil grip.

TaylorMade Spider S Putter - Performance and Forgiveness

This Spider TaylorMade Putter's combination of advanced materials and square shaping promotes high MOI for increased forgiveness and consistent roll on strikes across the face.

With an MOI of 6,000-plus, Spider S offers the most forgiving performance of any model in the Spider franchise.

This Spider TaylorMade Putter is manufactured from high-grade 6061 aluminum and 100-percent machine milled for precision shaping, and this helps provide you more the forgiveness you need on those short putts. 

We noted an incredibly smooth roll thanks to the Pure Roll Insert technology packed into this putter. 

The TaylorMade Spider S Putter was remarkably solid on short putts from inside of six feet, and we noted terrific distance control of putts struck from outside of the 30-foot range. 

The same could be said of the newer TaylorMade GT Putter, which has really impressed us this season.

Should you buy the TaylorMade Spider S Putter? 

This Spider TaylorMade Putter is one of the most stable and forgiving golf mallet putters we have ever tested, aided by its tungsten sole weights and heavy backbar. It's incredibly easy and comfortable to align and it possesses one of the smoothest rolls you will ever receive from a premium TaylorMade Golf Putter. You receive fantastic feedback in terms of the sound at impact, and can really tell when you've caught one out the sweetspot. It's perhaps a little overpriced at £299, but can you really put a price on holing more putts and shooting lower scores?
