What we say...
For those who prefer a smaller head, the TaylorMade Spider SR putter offers excellent stability in a tour-inspired shape.
Stability is the calling card of the TaylorMade Spider family. With the all-new Spider SR (Stability Refined), TaylorMade delivers high-MOI performance in a Tour-inspired double wing shape. The multi-material design features two back weights crafted from either steel (10g) or tungsten (15g, 20g) to optimise swing weight.

Due to a smaller footprint (5mm shorter front to back), Spider SR has a slightly lower MOI than Spider S. However, it’s still among the most stable and forgiving putters in the current Spider lineup. Another key differentiator is how True Path is positioned within the cavity behind the putter face. Also drawing inspiration from archery, the arrow-shaped design delivers an easy-to-aim alignment tool that promotes consistently centered ball positions at address.
Both Spider SR and Spider S are equipped with the all-new Fluted FeelTM shaft, delivering enhanced feel and optimal stability to putters that are already designed for forgiveness. The Tour-proven TPU Pure Roll insert provides a soft feel, and 45° grooves encourage better forward roll as well as improved sound, feel and overall roll characteristics compared to a solid face.
Available stock lengths include 33″, 34″ and 35″. Both come equipped with the TaylorMade Fluted FeelTM shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip as stock.

What TaylorMade say about the new Spider putters
“When we first introduced the original Spider putter in 2008, we never could have anticipated the global phenomenon it has become,” says Bill Price, TaylorMade’s putters and wedges guru.
“With widespread adoption on tours around the world, not only has it become one of the company’s top-selling putters of all time, it has truly shifted the paradigm of putter design toward high-MOI mallets.
“I’m proud to have played a role in the evolution of Spider and what it has become today.
“A lot goes into hitting a solid putt,” says Price. “With this new class of Spider putters, we focused on removing two of those variables: aim and alignment.
“Each model features its own True Path that simplifies the aiming process and helps golfers set up to the ball the same way time after time.
“While each putter brings something unique to the table, they are bonded by a foundation of forgiveness, stability, and True Path alignment that makes it easier to aim.”
