TaylorMade to release Spider Limited Black putter

Published

on

Dustin Johnson went black and soon you can, too. TaylorMade is releasing its Spider Limited putter in an black version that’s similar to the putter Dustin Johnson used to win the BMW Championship.

Like the Spider Limited Red, which was inspired by Jason Day’s taste in putters, the Spider Limited Black is a face-balanced design, has a single, white sightline and uses TaylorMade’s milled Pure Roll Insert.

What makes the Spider Limited unique is its relatively compact size — at least among mallet putters — and its big forgiveness. Its lightweight, 6061 aluminum body is reinforced with a stainless steel frame that creates an extremely high moment of inertia (MOI), a putter’s resistance to twisting on off-center hits. According to TaylorMade, the Spider Limited’s MOI is more than 4900.

The Spider Limited Black’s milled Pure Roll insert has a gunmetal finish.

It should be noted that the Spider Limited putters are slightly different than Day’s and Johnson’s putters in two ways: Day’s and Johnson’s putters do not have sight lines, and their putters have longer “flow necks” that create a small amount of toe hang.

Spider Limited Black putters ($299) are available in lengths of 34 and 35 inches for right-handed golfers. The putters will be in stores November 25. Pre-order now.

    Agree with everyone, golf manufacturers should release tour only products… They will most definitely sell$$$… They release total junk…

    Perfect example of why Taylormade is struggling………they are clueless when it comes to listening to golf enthusiasts, like everyone on this thread. They are trying to appeal to high handicap golfers, who are the people that don’t buy the newer expensive equipment. The people that are interested in this putter are your lower to mid handicappers and willing to pay $300. Great job of getting it all wrong again Taylormade. No sight line and flow neck, simple as that.

    And what’s with that massive white aiming line? Give us the blank, all black one!

      All you have to do is scrape the paint and get it to the base or fill it with black. Solved.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

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.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
