Just a heads up: I saw the JD and DJ versions from last year for $229 at golf galaxy in store. Haven’t checked if they’re that price online as well, but $70 off is pretty good.

Check GG and DSG on Thursday when they do the weekly flash sale. They’ve been on there for $199 for the last few weeks.

The flash sale is online when it occurs. I’ll have to see if they show up again on Thursday and they may not be the models you are referring to. The ones I’m talking about have been listed as 2016 Spider Tour Red/Black. No sight line.

Looks like they aren’t doing a flash sale today. Maybe they don’t want a conflict with their Father’s Day sales. Also, I was mistaken about the “2016” part. That was for their older model Scotty Cameron putters.

I bought a 34” diamond silver, I thought about cutting down to 33 or 33.5”. Looking at the specs on the website it says the head weight is 355 for all 3 lengths. Do all lengths have a 2g weight? Will I need to add any weight to the head or will it feel the same as the stock 33”? I know for my Scotty Cameron the head weight and weights are different on all lengths so I know to get the swing weight back to where it should be I would have to add weight. Is it the same for the spider?

According to TM, because they all have the same 355g head weight and all only have 2g weights even if you cut it down it will still feel the same weight and same swing weight as if you purchased the short putter. I chatted with them today. I have a 34 I want to cut down. They said it would feel the same as if I bought the 33”.

Hahahaha.  No. you talked to an idiot.  I can assure you absolutely 100% that a spider cut down to 33 inches is 6 swingweight points lighter than a 34 and 12 points lighter than a 35 if you do not put heavier weights in the head. You can buy the heavier weights on eBay.

Any club in the world that is cut down an inch will have a swingweight that is 6 points lighter than before and will obviously FEEL  significantly lighter.  That is all swingweight is.  It is a way to put a label on how heavy or light a head feels.

The club will certainly work just fine at a lower swingweight, but you may simply not like the putter head feeling lighter. It is strictly preference.

You need to add back about 2 grams per SW point, or 12 grams per inch cut, to get it back to the original swingweight.

Look at my previous post.  It is only preference.  You may like it just fine with a lower swingweight and a lighter feeling head. There is no rule on what it must be.

Cut it first and see what you think.  Weights are all over eBay if you want to change it.  Add 6 grams per 1/2 inch, 12 grams per inch to return it to its previous SW value.  You can experiment with lead tape before you buy weights to make sure you buy the right ones.  Add tape till you like the feel, then take off the tape and weigh it.  I have a small kitchen scale for such things.

I wonder if swingweight matters a LOT more on a full swing club than a putter ?

I mean, if you went from D-4 to C-8(?) on a driver the lighter feel of the club would be noticed immediately and one might not ever be able to get "used to it".

But as others (including myself) have said around here, we've cut down a putter an inch, or even 2, and found no real difference.

Did it feel lighter when we first tried it ? Absolutely. But putt with it for a while, get used to the (new) feel and get comfortable with it and next thing you know, you'd never know it was cut down in the first place.

I would agree with you.  12 points on a driver by shortening an inch is FAR  more important than on a putter.  You swing the putter extremely  slowly so that change in the feel of the head weight effects your brain very differently.  The driver moving very fast tends to exaggerate any difference because of the centrifugal force involved. (Or is it centripetal? Science guys can correct me)

If someone takes an inch off a driver without adding any weight back to it, MOST people will find they sort of lose  track of the head during the swing and their tempo gets a bit quick.. It feels so light that it becomes harder to use.

A putter is moving so slowly that it isn’t nearly as important.  Tiger uses D-1,  Phil uses something down in the mid C’s.  Some guys like them up in the E range.
There really is no rule, you just need to see if it bothers you shorter with no extra weight.  It really might not. You might love it down in the C range.

While I likely won't every switch away from my betti BB8, I have toyed with the spiders for quite some time. I prefer the feel of the black insert (red head) by far. I personally like the line to get me "set up" at address, then I just take the putter away. If I had my way for sure, I would use a sight dot, but I did the like the line over the no line.
