TaylorMade Spider Blade 2.0 Putter


Category: Blade Putters
Price: $230
35”, 38” shaft lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The two-tone look and single white line make it simple to aim.



DISTANCE CONTROL: Very consistent grooved face gives testers standout speed and directional control whether you catch the sweet spot or not; responsive face insert lives up to its “Pure Roll” name—putts get moving quickly off the clubface.
FEEL: Counterbalance weighting promotes a rhythmic, even tempo that smooths out the stroke and keeps the clubhead on track; a soft, rubbery feel at impact—about the same on center and off-center hits, with enough feedback; counterbalance with extended, oversize grip adds to stability.
LOOK: One of the higher-ranking models in this category; black-and-white color scheme, including the white weights flanking the back of the blade, work to frame the ball and make alignment simple; large head with sturdy topline is easy to set square.



Contrasting two-tone design looks too busy for some testers; others find that the large grip dampens feel; high-energy clubface takes some getting used to on lag putts.

BOTTOM LINE: The Spider Blade 2.0 makes alignment a breeze and levels out your stroke with stellar balance. It’s best for arc-style putters looking for a little help, but it’s so well balanced that any sort of stroke—or ability level—could put this to work.
