Spotted: TaylorMade “Spider Mini” Tour putters

Published

on

The rumored TaylorMade Spider Mini has crawled its way onto the PGA Tour. GolfWRX members speculated about the existence of a smaller, Spider with, well, extremely stubby legs.

Looking like the offspring of the Spider and the Spider Arc, here are a few shots of the Spider Mini in red from the TaylorMade tour truck at the Wells Fargo Championship.

While we don’t have an exact idea of head size, the most notable difference between the Spider and the Mini is obviously the amputation of the legs and the addition of a sole weight. It looks like TM is also adding weight to the remaining nubs in the spirit of the Spider’s MOI-boosting shape and weight distribution. The company’s Pure Roll insert looks to be carried over from the Spider as well.

What do you think about the “Spider Mini” photos?

    I’m gonna put a Stability shaft into my Scotty head to stiffen it up so I can putt with vigor and potency.

    If I ever snag a used Spider I am absolutely painting it like a turtle with its head chopped off.

PXG introduces high-MOI, adjustable Operator putter

Published

on

Joining the Drone and Gunboat on the high-MOI mallet-style putter end of the spectrum, PXG is launching its highest MOI putter to date: the Operator.

With a maximum head mass of 400 grams, depending on weight adjustments, the Operator features a soft billet-milled 304 stainless steel face and a body made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum.

PXG made the Operator for those seeking advanced customization and maximum forgiveness. Multiple sole weights, available in increments of 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g, can be used to adjust the overall head mass.

Regarding the name: “Operator” is the specific term for Delta’s operational personnel, although in recent years it has become a term for almost all U.S. military special forces.

The putter is available in three models.

Operator

The double-bend hosel style creates a full shaft of offset with a face-balanced hang angle. Built for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Operator H

The hosel neck is heel-shafted with a half shaft of offset and mid toe-down hang angle. Built for players with more face rotation in their stroke.

Operator P

The plumber’s neck shaft creates a full shaft of offset with a slightly toe-down hang angle. Built for players with a moderate amount of face rotation in their stroke.

All Operator models feature PXG’s proprietary TPE honeycomb sole insert and a TPE insert behind the face to dampen vibrations and enhance feel.

$450 retail.
