I've only had my tour black for a few days. I changed the weights and added 8g weights to it and it feels so much better. I'm still not sure on the grip. Has anyone changed their grip on it. If you added the straight SNSR 104cc or the super stroke pistol GT 1.0, how was the feel? Did you have to order a heavier weight?

I bought a 34" black in a local store and I'm very happy with the purchase. I have been waiting for a slant neck spider since the Ghost spider slant neck. I didn't buy one of those because I hate the plastic insert that was in it. I am not the biggest fan of the insert in the spider tour as it is the same plastic but it seems firmer and not as hollow sounding. It still feels hollow but not as much. I would love to replace the insert with the og. AGSI insert then this thing would really shine. Mine sits square and flows really nice back and through. I got the plane sole plate that doesn't say tour just itsy bitsy. I agree though it is over priced at 299 tops 250 but if your military you can use ID on Taylor Mades website and get it for 254 with discount.

I absolutely love the look and the head size, and that I can change weights.  The feel is awesome with the firmer insert too. I just installed a Superstroke GT and I think that combo will be very successful.

can you please tell me which weights you used when changing the stock ones out? Where can I purchase them? Thanks!

The Spider Tour uses the same weights that TM has been using for years.  You can pull weights from older TM clubs like R7 and Supertri drivers, or purchase standard TM weights off of ebay.  I have two 4g weights in mine (stock is 2g weights), and it feels very well balanced to me.  Some people go with 6g or 8g weights, and seem to like that as well.  Any heavier, you'd really need  to want/like a heavy putter.

I putted with one today in a SAM puttlab session. I prefer a sbst stroke but I tend to take it away slightly outside thinking I'm sb. The SAM numbers on the spider tour black were phenomenal. Stroke was slightly inside and my usual 4 degree left path was .1 degree left. Seems the toe hang helped me bring the putter back better and thru better. I aimed it better than my gamer too. My aim was .2 degrees right, my gamer is .6 right.

But the numbers on the sigma g kushin were nearly identical to the spider so I'm going with the ping since I wanted to go back to a blade style, the ping is much cheaper, and the ping suits my eye better.

Just received my 34" DJ Spider Tour it's sits square, not sure what you guys are seeing. Haven't had it on the course yet but it feels awesome.

I've used a TaylorMade TP driver for years.  It sits about 2 degrees open.  Anytime I pick up other drivers with square faces they seem closed.

I like the tour black, but still love the original ghost spider. Face balanced suits me better and like the larger size. Tour black is a great putter, firmer insert fella better to me and the black is sharp looking.

This thread has a lot of the answers everyone is looking for:


I have the black Spider Tour with the Itsy Bitsy sole plate, not the Tour sole plate (apparently there is a difference in the way it sits because the sole plates are shaped differently), and I have to say that I think this is going to be my gamer for a while. I've gotten in 4 full rounds and a few practice sessions with it and I love the firmer feel (used with a Pro V1x or Srixon XV), it's not a click, it's just a solid feeling. I have had very little trouble with the ball skidding, even with lag putts on a shaggy green. The slant neck seems to fit my eye very well and it may not be for everyone but it definitely is for me. I like not having a sight line because I am more of a feel putter and tend to manipulate my stroke when I have any sort of alignment aid on the putter or the ball.

From 5 feet and in, this putter is deadly for me. It is extremely stable because of the perimeter weighting and high MOI. The fact that it has changeable weights is a huge benefit as now I have been able to dial in the exact weight I want. There are few putters I've felt this confident with in the past and I've always reluctantly sold them - I won't make that mistake again. This thing is point and shoot.

For what it's worth - I have a SBST stroke and the 38* of toe hang is negligible.

I have the same putter and sole plate. There were different ones made?

Yes - there are two different models of the Spider Tour Black. There was a version that was released in November that was limited release, which has this sole plate:

And the model that is currently being sold has this sole plate:

Those seem to be the only differences between the two. They are mostly cosmetic but I've read that the 2nd image I just posted sits different due to those indents.

I have the bottom one
I, too, have had excellent results with my lag putting; making a surprising number from 25 to 35 feet range  
10 feet and in - I have alignment issues without sight lines - so I am using car striping tape and making my own multiple sight lines
When done, it is going in my bag.
