TaylorMade Spider Mallet 2.0 Putter

Category: Midsize Mallet Putters
Price: $230
WE TESTED:
35”, 38” shaft lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The high-MOI design provides plenty of stability through impact.

PROS

DISTANCE CONTROL: An excellent combination of control and forgiveness; the club’s perimeter weighting virtually eliminates distance loss on mis-hits; lagging putts is easy, and adjusting to the speed of new greens is no problem for most guys.
FEEL: Good feedback from the face—testers know the difference between heel, center and toe strikes, and putts come off the face with a muted click; the head moves smoothly through the hitting area; overall weighting suits a straight-back, straight-through stroke; a few guys find that the counterbalance club irons out some of the flaws in their stroke.
LOOK: Most testers appreciate the contrasting, black-and-white paint job; the color mix is ideal for alignment; the white corners frame the ball, and the center alignment line provides plenty of aiming help toward the back of the cup so you can drill it home.

CONS

A few testers are turned off by the club’s white, somewhat-plastic look; others believe the two-tone head can be a distraction at address; one or two guys prefer a lighter head.

BOTTOM LINE: The Spider Mallet 2.0 frames, aims and rolls the ball nicely, and it’s stable enough to minimize slight misses. It also carries a look that, while futuristic, shouldn’t scare too many traditionalists.
