Key Technologies

Extreme perimeter weighting significantly enhances stability and forgiveness; grooves cut at a 45-degree angle increase topspin for a smoother forward roll; sightline technology improves alignment.

 

Our Take

At first, the Spider design seemed like a massive departure for TaylorMade, but it became a big success when players such as Dustin Johnson and Jason Day began to game it regularly.

Fitter Comments

Spider Tour mallets are popular on Tour because they combine excellent roll and forgiveness with solid feel and distance control.

 

Recommendation

With flow neck and face-balanced options, the Tour works for anyone. TaylorMade also offers an Interactive Spider that delivers advanced analytics during play.
