TaylorMade Golf Unveils New Spider Tour Series with four Unique Models Including the Iconic Spider Tour and Spider Tour X Putters
- Press Releases
With unmatched stability and an unmistakable shape, for nearly two decades Spider putters have been claiming major championships and stacking victories across professional tours globally.
Today, TaylorMade revitalizes the essence of this iconic franchise with the release of the Spider Tour Series – a family of high MOI putters with four unique models featuring renowned technologies such as True PathTM Alignment, Pure RollTM and TSS weighting.
Within a design that will always be synonymous with stability, each Spider Tour Series putter is crafted using multi-material construction to push weight low and back in the head for high levels of inertia. Engineers created superstructures that maintain the shape of a classic Spider Tour, then utilized thin wall undercuts to remove excess weight.
A steel wireframe construction allows engineers to better control weight distribution and CG location. The suite of putters includes various CG positions to fit a wide variety of putting styles, while also arming custom fitters with an array of options.
Underneath the hood is a new HYBAR echo damper that is also seen in TaylorMade distance irons such as Stealth and Stealth HD. It is placed directly behind the face to dampen unwanted vibrations, delivering premium sound and feel on every putt.
With the Spider Tour Series, TaylorMade is utilizing the same Pure Roll insert that rose to prominence with the original Spider X putter. Molded from a surlyn material, it delivers a soft yet responsive feel with grooves that are angled 45° downward to help impart better topspin and an end-over-end roll.
The Gunmetal PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finish not only enhances the aesthetics of the putters but also provides enhanced durability and a sense of luxury that elevates the overall quality of the family. The PVD coating creates a robust barrier that helps protect the surface from the rigors of regular use and exposure to various environmental elements.
Spider Tour is one of the most recognizable shapes in the putting world, accounting for dozens of victories on professional tours across the globe. TaylorMade is breathing new life into the company’s most popular creations with enhanced materials, a new color and refined weight distribution.
The Spider Tour model has a CG location of 35mm from the face, 5,700 MOI and 29° of toe hang on a small slant hosel. Amidst the recent trend of counterbalance putters on Tour, Spider Tour also comes in a 38-inch counterbalance model with a 17-inch SuperStroke 3.0 grip.
Made popular as the putter of choice for Rory McIlroy, the Spider X shape has been one of the most sought-after in the franchise. It was originally designed to convert players who loved blade putters into mallets, using a compact shape and modern look to deliver a more blade-like feel with the added benefits of alignment and forgiveness that is incumbent to Spider putters. TSS weights in Spider Tour X are placed farther forward, generating more face rotation and a CG placement that is 33mm compared to 35mm of Spider Tour.
This model has MOI of 5,000 and 30° of toe hang on the small slant hosel.
Spider Tour Z is one of two new shapes in this lineup, paying homage to the Spider Tour with a wing shaped back. The perimeter of this putter sits low in the ground to provide a comfortable feeling at address and help frame the golf ball for easy alignment. TSS weights on this model are placed very far forward to encourage more face rotation and a blade-like feel.
It has a CG location of 29mm, 5,050 MOI and 29° of toe hang with a small slant hosel.
Spider Tour V eliminates the wing structure and creates a more modern streamlined look. It is the smallest putter in shape and size in the lineup, providing the most rotation of the bunch.
Spider Tour V has a CG location of 27mm, MOI of 4,900 and 32° of toe hang with a small slant hosel.
Spider Tour Series putters are available for pre-order in stores starting September 19th and available at retail on the 3rd of November. All models come equipped with a white/yellow SuperStroke GT 1.0 Pistol grip and gloss black PVD KBS shaft.
TaylorMade will also offer a customization and personalization program for the Spider Tour and Spider Tour X models. MySpider Tour and MySpider Tour X gives golfers the option to customize the finish on their putter with four finish options: Hydro Blast, Black, Gunmental, Rose Gold.
Golfers can also choose the feel of their face insert within the MySpider program for the first time. For a customized playing experience that suits the golfer’s style, MySpider allows golfers to select the color that represents their game and pair it with their desired feel - whether that's a soft feeling or a firm roll.
Additional personalization offerings include: sightline, sightline color, true path, face insert, sole plate, back badge, weight color and two headcover options.
