TaylorMade Spider X Putter Review

TaylorMade introduced the very first ‘Spider’ design ten years ago. The TaylorMade Spider brand putters have had undeniable success on PGA Tours when players like Jason Day and Dustin Johnson have used them on the golf course.

The new TaylorMade flagship flat stick, the Spider X Putter, has been recently released to celebrate the various successes and victories that have been achieved by the older generations of spider putters from TaylorMade.

TaylorMade Spider X Putter Review– What’s New

With new and refined looks and removable weights that seem to brand into the overall shape of the club unconsciously, the TaylorMade Spider X putter can be found in four different packages. The two colors of the body are Navy and copper, and the golf player can choose the putter of his choice between a simple white sightline or the True Path alignment.

The head is 5% smaller than the original spider putters. The design of the weight is made up of 2 grams of aluminum, 6 grams of steel, and 12 grams of tungsten, which still does not harm the MOI but continues to maintain it.

Sound and Feel

The sound and feel of the TaylorMade Spider X putter are just right. The pure roll insert gives you the slightest bit of crisp feel at impact, and the ‘thud’ or the ‘click’ sound that you hear when you use it to hit a urethane-covered ball is a comfortable one. However, if you want to hear a louder pitch at impact and receive maximum feedback, you will have to hit the extreme heel or toe to do so.

This good sound and feel come from the 5-millimeter pure roll white surlyn insert, and the 12 grooves help to promote your forward spin, providing a smoother roll, increased accuracy, and far better distance control. The grooves are only 0.5 millimeters deep and help soften the insert’s structure. Some famous players who use pure roll inserts on their PGA tours include names like Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa, and Rory McIlroy.


Forgiveness in a putter is extremely important, and the TaylorMade Spider X putter does not shy away from being forgiving. Being extremely stable, the putter keeps the ball on the intended line and makes for easy putting. Your putting performance can be improved only if the putter offers you extra stability. This is what the Spider X does. It pushes stability and alignment through extreme limits.

The head stability has increased because the weight is just 15 grams instead of the old model’s weight of 79 grams. This has resulted in head frame stability from 247 grams to 320 grams. The TaylorMade Spider X putter has two neck styles; one is the slant neck, and the other is the single bend. A toe hang of 45 degrees is produced by the Slant neck putter and fits arcing strokes. The single bend putter is suitable for players with less face rotation.


The True Path alignment aids the players in feeling more confident in their strikes, especially those golfers who have a problem aiming. They must give the TaylorMade spider X True Path alignment putter a try.

The TaylorMade Spider X putter is an engineering feat that has been designed to provide clearer sight, improved path, and increased visual perception.

After conducting and analyzing almost 11,000 impacts on launch monitors, the construction of the TaylorMade Spider X putter has made it the world’s best-selling putter. It has also shifted the focus of the design of the putters onto high MOI mallets.

The creation of the new Y-shaped sightline is the work of a genius team. The Y-shaped sightline provides the golfer with high contrast alignment aid, and the sight line opens a way to show the line to the hole. According to one golf tester, “these are like putting on the autopilot switch.”

Unfortunately, these are not for you if you are tight on a budget. They are a bit expensive, and one must buy them only if they play a lot of golf. They are most comfortable to use, and their performance is at the highest level.

The shape is nicely compact, and they are among the most forgiving putters available on the market today. A golfer who is 6 feet or above should go for the 35-inch version, but if you are shorter than that, the 34-inch version would be more suitable for you.

Our Final Thoughts

The TaylorMade Spider X putter is one that combines the benefits of a mallet as well as a blade. High MOI, reduced twists and torque, an enhanced feeling, and extra toe weight are some of the reasons for the Spider X being found in the golf bags of many professional golfers. This putter is the best of the best that TaylorMade has come up with. The ten years of experiments and the persistence with which TaylorMade continued to work to make and upgrade the Spider has made this particular model an astounding success.

The TaylorMade Spider X putter is beautifully stunning to look at too. Along with the vastly impressive features that it comes with, the TaylorMade Spider X is the ideal buying solution for professional golfers and amateurs looking forward to improving their game.
