TaylorMade releases new Daddy Long Legs+ putter

Published

on

TaylorMade’s Daddy Long Legs putters have been one of the best-selling models for the company in recent years, boasting big forgiveness with a counter-balanced design and a high-MOI head shape that can help golfers smooth out their strokes.

With the new Daddy Long Legs+, TaylorMade added even more overall MOI to the putter (the MOI is 8856, if you’re into the numbers). The company used a lightweight True Temper steel shaft and a SuperStroke XL 2.0 grip that has a 125-gram weight in its butt end to move the balance point of the putter 2 inches higher and put 200 percent more weight above a golfer’s hands at address.

Other changes for the Daddy Long Legs+ include TaylorMade’s new deep-milled 6061 aluminum insert, which feels softer at impact than the PureRoll Surlyn insert used in the Daddy Long Legs 2.0 putter.

Daddy Long Legs+ putters are face-balanced, and will be available on July 15 for $249. They will be offered with a single bend at 34.5-, 36- and 38-inch lengths.

    I own the original DLL. I like the putter. 95% depends on the golfer and his/her confidence of sinking a putt. That being said the original white DLL I have has suffered many paint chips and looks like crap. I may or may not get this. Im sure there will be a better model out (DDL 3.0) in 2-4 months anyways. Play what you want guys and dont worry too much about other people! SEE IT ROLL IT HOLE IT

    I have a DLL and it is a great putter. Will have to try the new one to see if it feels different than mine.

    The rules of golf state: “The club must not be substantially different from the traditional and
    customary form and make.”

    The USGA really slipped up on enforcing their own club rules.

    Good for them for just owning up to it and not even vailing the blatant copying anymore…

Shaft fitting: Is it worth it? – GolfWRXers have their say

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft fitting and whether it makes a substantial difference or not. WRXer ‘2ndCut16’ recently snagged a set of heavily discounted T100 irons on eBay and asks members:

“My question is, is it worth going to get a shaft fitting? They currently have DG S300, which was what was in my 714AP2 ( I was not fit for these either), but I’m curious how much the shaft may make a difference? I’m sorry if this has been covered before, I’m just recently was bit by the equipment bug and am trying to learn all that I can.

Given that I saved a good junk of the cost of the clubs, I’d be willing to spend a little to get the right shaft, if it is actually going to make a difference, I just wanted to check here before I spent the $100 for the shaft fitting.”

And our members have been having their say in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • nhaun2: “I definitely think it’s worth it with the way the technology has progressed the last 5-10 years. $100 seems kinda steep, but I feel like most places will credit that back or at least a portion of it if you make a purchase through them.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “Never worry about paying for something that is worth the price to YOU! If your goal is to be the best golfer you can be, then your priorities are far different from the average weekend golfer. Fitting is typically expensive, but the information you get can be well worth the cost. As ChipNRun mentioned. Most of us have a swing that probably won’t change much over the next few years. Knowing what shaft characteristics fit you allows you to oftentimes choose a set of ideal clubs right off the rack! Knowledge of your equipment will help you make the most of your equipment buying dollars and avoid falling prey to the marketing that is so prevalent today.”
  • thesamewise: “1 million percent worth it. The right shaft will complement your game and can accentuate your strengths and mask some of your flaws a little. I got the right shafts in my irons, and I just can’t believe how much they help.”
  • Ruleschamp: “Not gonna make that much of a material difference in terms of performance but if you want them to feel the way you like the club to feel then go for the fitting and just enjoy the fun.”
  • GLF4EVR: “Piece of mind may be worth it just so you do not have that little thought in the back of your mind about it. I have done my own tinkering for many years now. I have never had any lessons, and all the club building I have done was thru this site. Had the chance to see a professional fitter last year. Spent over 2 hours going over every club in the bag & was charged only $65. Only recommendations were what kind of graphite shafts to put in my irons if I want to switch & to play with the bounce on my 58 wedge. To me, that was the most worthwhile $65 I have spent on golf in a long time. To find out I was correct in all my work & the way I had gone about; it was just about priceless for me. It is kind of strange to not have that little voice in the back of my head anymore with any questions about my equipment & the fine-tuning I have done. My only thing I would say is to make sure the fitter knows what they are doing.”
