I was fitted, bought, and love my Tour Platinum. I remain absolutely convinced that the insert is made of alloy, going as far as tapping on my teeth, and not surlyn, unless surlyn is a metal

Hi, do you have issues with the paint? When did you buy your putter?
My new platinum arrived yesterday. First impressions: it feels great with the SS 2.0 and I start to get used to the "Mickeymouse"-color ;-).

Do you happen to know if the putter is counterbalanced? Or is it just a cap on the grip?

You have my putter - I was fitted for the Platinum. Its just the grip no weight. Its a great putter. Tell me, have a look at the insert, what do you think its made of ? I am convinced its alloy not surlyn.

It does have sort of a metallic sheen on it, doesn't it ?

TM really screwed up though. The made the EXACT same putter this year but with the DJ(?) face instead of the previous Platinum face.

Pretty hard to tell the difference unless you hold them up next to each other.

I am soooooooo confused.

I bought a DJ model about 4 months or so ago. Putted reasonably well with it and then went to SE Asia for a couple of months. Took it with me and had all sorts of trouble reaching the hole. Add to that the ball seemed to be bouncing around a lot on me. So I totally stopped using it

Thinking back on it the days that happened were on slower and grainier type greens.

Just yesterday, now back home in SoFla I took it out for no particular reason and started making everything. The ball was rolling out really nicely and I was making a LOT of putts - si it's back in my good graces.

I found an Itsy Bitsy in the store yesterday - looked exactly like the current DJ model and it looked brand new as well) but it had 2 10 gram weights in it (mine only had 2 2 gram weights) so it had a noticeably heavier feel to it. I putted with it for a while and had a tough time reaching the hole (on a really fast store putting green).

Would I be swinging the heavier weight putter with that much less (unintentionally of course) effort because it was heavier and thereby not reaching the hole ??? :dntknw: :blink: :blink: :blink:

Anyway, with yesterday's success, instead of leaving it in the trunk of my car I'm going to work with it more (again) and who knows, maybe it was a "one (or 2 LOL) off" thing in SE Asia,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
My story is about like yours. Bought mine used at 33Ē with 6 gram weights. I like a heavy Spider so I put in 16 gram weights. Played the other day and could NOT hit it hard enough with that heavy swingweight.

Came home and put the 6 grams back in and feels better in my grarage putting mat. I will take it back out this week and see how the lighter swingweight works.

I think the heavy SW just threw it all off for me.

I hope I am proved wrong here but I am pessimistic. Am I right in saying that the Spider Tour Black is not available in a double bend shaft with no sight line?

Thanks,

Harry

OK, so I "chatted" online with Taylormade and asked about the Itsy Bitsy Spider and asked about whether they are still making them. Got a "No" and I "hung up".

But the Itsy Bitsy I saw again today was CLEARLY almost brand new (still had the length sticker on its grip). Not a mark on it. Red, faced balanced like the Tour Platinum (and now others), red with a white alignment line on top. It also had what appeared to be (and felt like as well) the metallic face of the Tour Platinum.

The old Itsy Bitsy was what ? About 8 or 9 years ago ? And it had a red metal insert with a black "frame".

So what's the deal with this ? Limited Edition (I think it actually said that on the soleplate) ? Seems identical to the Tour Platinum except for the sole plate.

Still using it. Played some heavy weights in it. Changed back to the original weights. Feeling a little better. Started getting a SBST path and realized that I still needed to release this thing. Got lazy over the season
