I feel happy for all the lucky Golfers who have already had their hands on the amazing Taylormade putter. I also feel kind of envious right now because I don’t have one but not to worry we still have a lot of people reviewing it, and if you’re also planning to get it, let’s have The Taylormade Spider Tour Red Review.
This putter is for those who rely on high levels of stability and forgiveness over alignment assistance.
Extensive perimeter weighting adds stability on this putter while a removed sightline on the crown improves the player’s focus on the clubface. The Pure Roll insert combines 45° grooves with a softer polymer to increase topspin and aid a soft feel.
First things first, the Spider Tour catches the eye in its red lick of paint. the lack of alignment assistance may be a problem for some but I found the premium red finish highlighted the face angle prominently. The black shaft matches the classy look of the head nicely. One of the best aspects to the Spider Tour design is that its face (black) is a different color to the head (red) and this certainly helps with address position and being able to see the leading edge.
You’ll notice a remarkably loud ‘pop’ sound at effect given how soft this putter feels at impact but it doesn’t reduce from the overall appeal. The stock grip is quite thin; you may feel the need to switch it.
It is interesting how the shaft leans back when the sole is flat to the ground, forcing you to lift the back of the putter off the ground when you bring the shaft back to vertical.
It makes you feel like you hit down on the ball but it didn’t seem to affect performance and there’s a little bit of extra loft to lessen this feeling.
The Spider Tour putter luckily has a high moment of inertia (MOI) which means it has plenty of forgiveness behind it due to its resistance to twisting at impact and especially on off-center hits.
The cutaways down the side, however, create a nice framed middle slot to align the golf ball to the hole.
Let’s jump into its pros and cons to get to the other side of the perspective.
Pros: Spider tour red
It has an exceptional stability combined with good roll properties which helps the ball to stay on line.
It has a premium, unique look with a solid, soft feel which gives a boost to the overall appearance of the putter.
It has cheaper rates than most of the Taylormade products or other putters. This is a huge plus point for mid-ranged golfers.
Cons: Spider Tour Red
Let’s talk a look at Cons of Taylormade Spider tour Red Review.
It lacks alignment assistance and the lie angle takes some getting used to, as the beginners can’t fully take advantage of that. This can drag the customers away from the product.
Taylormade has also launched the Juno Putter which is also one of the most bought putters. But what makes both of them different? Let’s compare and check if which one of them is better.
Taylormade Juno Putter (Features)
