TaylorMade Releases Three New Putters
TaylorMade has expanded it's premium putter line with three new counterbalanced models - the Daddy Long Legs ($249), Spider Blade ($229) and Spider Mallet ($229). All three models feature a Tour-inspired color scheme which TaylorMade's staff players prefer as well as a matte black shaft. In contrast to last year's Spider and Daddy Long Legs models, each new puttter has a black leading edge with white compliments that highlight the rear weights. According to the company's Tour staff, this color scheme is easier to aim and simply looks better at address.
Of the three new models the Daddy Long Legs offers the highest level of stability, featuring an MOI of more than 8500. The unique Spider Blade, which has an MOI of 5200, is said to be approximately 50% more stable than the typical blade putter. All of the new counterbalanced models are built with a heavy steel body with tungsten heel and toe weights. Heavy weight, overlength grips that weigh as much as 130g help produce the added stability associated with a counterbalanced design. A surlyn, "Pure Roll," face insert further improves the performance of each putter by providing improved feel at impact and a smoother roll.
All three models are available in 35" and 38" standard lengths.
