I’ve had the red and black and the black definitely seems better for paint issues.

Looking at getting the latest black slant neck with the red sole plate.  Any comments on durability of insert?  Read about sand, etc. causing dents in the insert/grooves.

Just had my first round with my DJ tour Spider.  Success.

In the last year I have not played as much golf as normal and this was the first outing in 2 months.  Lately, my putting has been a weak part of my game and has not allowed me to take advantage of opportunities that I have created.  Very frustrating.  

Today was different.  I was amazed at the trust I had in the lines I was seeing, and my stroke followed suit.  I also holed or scared the hole on putts inside 15'.  Putts inside 5' seemed automatic.  This reminds me of how I used to putt.  For some reason, this set up works for my stroke.  I do not feel effort to start the stroke going back and the slight toe hang works for me in a mallet set up.  

Being on the course again played in to the joy of the experience, but my putting was something I stopped thinking about.  I did not walk away with any frustration of "what could/what should have been".   I feel I am very honest with myself and have never been one to say "if I only made those 40's the day would have been different".  This is not realistic and stupid to be frustrated by.  My frustration would always come from feeling solid from tee to green and putting myself in to that 10'-15' window and never feeling like I never had a chance.  My scores were still solid but they seemingly were always on the high end of the potential of the round and that is  where it gets frustrating.  

I am genuinely excited about putting now.

Concerning the feel or sound, this is so subjective.  I know that when I hit it out of the middle it has a very muted nice sound, and when I tend to creep out to the to it does have a different sound and feel.  For me this is great!  I love feedback.  

I will keep you informed of the progress and also how the putter is wearing.  I bought it used and from someone that plays a fairly decent amount and the paint was still perfect.

I have two original Tour Blacks with no issues at all.... picked up a Tour Red recently straight from Taylormade and paint came chipped around the insert and with dust/imperfections under the paint on the crown of the putter.

I had the 2017 tour red and the paint fell off just looking at it. I’m now considering going back to one of these putters. Are the new 2018 versions still terrible for paint durability on the red?

I wanted the black because of the paint chipping issue and because I think it looks better.

But I bought the red because it feels better to me, and I felt like I was consistently finding the middle.

First time out on Sunday and had 31 putts.  Thatís good for me.  Anything close to 30 and Iím happy.

More importantly I felt comfortable over the ball and shot my best score in months.  3 birdies in total and only one 3 jack.

Hopeful the paint is not an issue for me
