WHO IT’S BUILT FOR
A paradigm shift occurred when TaylorMade introduced the Spider franchise more than a decade ago. Today, approximately 60% of players on the PGA Tour use mallet putters – whereas traditional blades were the majority before that time. As TaylorMade continued to refine and develop the Spider family, countless golfers expressed interest in the performance benefits of a high-MOI mallet but still preferred traditional shaping.
The perfect example is Dustin Johnson, who has enjoyed great success with both Spider and blade-type putters. While his results with the Spider speak for themselves, he also appreciates the clean look and enhanced feel a blade offers.
Four Different Shape Options
Truss will be offered in four distinct models: TB1, TB2, TM1 and TM2. TB1 is a heel-shafted blade design that most closely resembles a traditional blade putter. An additional 8g of weight was added to the toe to counterbalance the Truss hosel. TB2 is a center-shafted blade with the hosel stretching across the center of the face to increase stability. TM1 is a heel-shafted mallet that combines the Truss hosel with a classic mallet shape. TM2 is a center-shafted mallet with minimal offset and the hosel stretching across the entire topline. It is the most stable putter in the Truss family.
SPECIFICATIONS, PRICING & AVAILABILITY
Truss will be at retail beginning February 14 with an MSRP of $299 USD. Available lengths include 33”, 34” and 35”. Each model has a nickel cobalt finish and features the Tour-proven Cobalt Blue Pure Roll™ insert. They come equipped with the KBS Stepless Stability Shaft and Lamkin Sink Fit Skinny grip.
TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in technology and performance, today announces Spider S – the latest addition to the company’s acclaimed Spider franchise. The uniquely shaped putter family provides the ultimate in stability and forgiveness through high-MOI mallet designs.
Spider S is manufactured from high-grade 6061 aluminum and 100-percent machine milled for precision shaping. The square-frame putter head is outfitted with two 48g tungsten sole weights that are strategically placed on the toe and the heel to help stabilize the putter while also optimizing CG location.
A heavy tungsten backbar is used to further customize swing weight based on the length of the putter. Coming in 55g, 65g and 80g units, the backbar at the rear of the putter is designed to influence head weight, feel and performance. The heaviest weight (80g) pairs with the shortest putter length (33 inches) and vice versa.
The combination of advanced materials and square shaping promotes high MOI for increased forgiveness and consistent roll on strikes across the face. With an MOI of 6,000-plus, Spider S offers the most forgiving performance of any model in the Spider franchise.
Completing the design is the Tour-proven Pure Roll™ Insert. With Spider S, the company opted for a thicker 5mm surlyn insert designed for better sound, feel and roll characteristics.
With Spider S, we utilize advanced materials and machine milling to create the highest MOI and most forgiving model in our Spider lineup. The beauty and performance of this putter is in all of the tungsten. We use more than 150g in each head to deliver precision weighting and optimal performance
Spider S will be available at retail beginning February 14 with an MSRP of $349.99 USD. Available lengths include 33”, 34” and 35”. Offered in two different colorways: Navy and Chalk. Comes equipped with the KBS Stepless Stability Shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip.
