TaylorMade introduces new putters

TaylorMade has announced new counterbalanced models of the Daddy Long Legs, Spider Blade (pictured) and Spider Mallet putters. The new designs feature an enhanced colour scheme, including a black finish and white tungsten heel/toe weights, which frame the ball at address. A matte-black shaft and high-polish sole complete the new designs.

Daddy Long Legs is the most stable putter in the trio, with an MOI of more than 8,500. TaylorMade says that the high-MOI design resists twisting at impact to protect ball speed on off-centre hits, promoting a reliable roll regardless of where the ball is struck on the face. At more than 5,200 MOI, the Spider Blade offers the stability of a mallet putter in a blade shape to promote outstanding twist-resistance and distance control on off-centre hits. All three models feature a heavy steel frame, and tungsten heel and toe weights, all designed to raise the MOI to deliver increased head stability.

Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s director of iron, wedge and putter creations stated, “The new tour-inspired cosmetic is visually stunning, while also delivering the ultimate in stability and performance. Each of these putters promote an extremely stable putting stroke, to help golfers deliver a consistent roll time after time.”

Each new Ghost Spider putter is offered two lengths of 38 or 35 inches. The new Daddy Long Legs is priced at £189 and the Spider Blade and Spider Mallet are priced at £179. More at: www.taylormadegolf.com
