TaylorMade Spider S

Finding the right putter is a very personal thing but in recent years technological advances have greatly enhanced the quality of performance from the putters the leading brands offer.

Editor's Choice 2020

Following on from the tremendous success of the Spider X range, TaylorMade’s Spider S putter has been designed with a view to offer even greater stability and forgiveness. It succeeds in that ambition.

The extra stability is achieved through the use of three high density tungsten weights, totalling 150g. Two are positioned in the heel and toe while a tungsten weight bar positioned at the rear helps increase the MOI. The bar is customized for each shaft length and head weight and it sits within a high-grade aluminium body for perimeter stability.

Improved roll and alignment

Three short sightlines at the front of the head assist with alignment while the Pure Roll Insert has been made thicker for a better sound and feel. It also features grooves angled at 45° to encourage more forward roll off the face. Putting all those factors together, this is the most forgiving putter in TaylorMade’s 2020 range.

Available in chalk white or navy with black shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip, this is a stylish looking weapon that inspires confidence at address.

Great distance control

We found the Spider S to be extremely stable through the stroke and to be excellent when it comes to distance control. If you’re looking for a mallet style putter that stays consistently stable through the stroke, the Spider S is very much worth considering.

The feel off the face is solid but extremely controllable, while the roll generated by the insert is excellent. Overall, it’s a good-looking putter that feels great through the stroke and produces consistent results. What more could you ask for from your flat stick?
