TaylorMade announces Spider GTX and Spider GT Max putters

TaylorMade has unveiled its 2023 Spider line-up, featuring the all-new Spider GTX and Spider GT Max putters.

Spider GTX combines the best features of the iconic Spider Tour and Spider X models, with a full array of colour options. Meanwhile, Spider GT Max introduces a new level of adjustability and performance to the franchise.

Spider GTX (RRP £299, MySpider custom £349) offers a colour option to suit every player’s style and preference – from classic shades to bold hues. Key features include proven technologies such as True Path Alignment, and PureRoll² for a consistent end-over-end roll. It includes a deep centre of gravity created by a heavy 154g stability bar at the rear of the putter – which accounts for 45% of the putter’s total weight.

Spider GTX is designed to encourage a stable putting motion while helping the putter face resist twisting at impact. Due to the heavy concentration of mass at the rear of the club, Spider GTX ranks among the most forgiving Spider putters of all time with moment of inertia above 5,300.

The multi-material construction features a 100% CNC milled body made from 6106 aluminium, which allowed engineers to utilise an anodised PVD colouration process to deliver a premium look with improved durability.

Spider GT Max (RRP £379) features two 40g sliding tungsten weights which can be positioned to influence centre of gravity, toe hang and face rotation. This design allows players to cover the centre of gravity ranges of nearly all preceding mallet-style Spiders while helping to minimise mishit tendencies for specific putting strokes.

For players who tend to miss putts to the left, placing the weights in Position 1 (farthest back) slows down face rotation. For players who miss to the right, Position 3 (farthest forward) helps the face close faster. If you don’t have a consistent miss and are looking for versatility, Position 2 offers a neutral option.

Spider GT Max comes in a silver anodized finish with TaylorMade’s True Path technology. The lightweight, fully machined aluminium body gives the putter a premium look with better durability than painted putter heads. The steel sole plate and sliding tungsten weights are finished with a durable black PVD finish, and Spider GT Max is offered in two hosel configurations (short slant and single bend).
