Yes.  It's just terrible.  

And that's why it's the number 1 ranked model of putter used  on the PGA tour. It's just a terrible nasty POS and the best players in the world that can use anything they want keep choosing it.

Come on. Think before you post.

If you think the same clubs we buy at big box stores is the same that they are using on your, specifically DJ and JD, are using on tour then your delusional. Same goes for balls. There is how many different versions of the Prov1 on tour? Dozens!

Sergio's spider, as well at the others (DJ, JD, Rahm)are the same as the model we are buying, just look at the photos... The myth of "every club the pros play is different than ours" gets frustrating. Yes they often have access to "tour issue" things, and we see them on here but these spider putters are not one of them.

Sergio's- same as off the rack right now
Rahm - older sole plate, same model
DJ - older sole plate, same model
JD - older sole plate, red Model from the stores, different from his major winning hand welded, hand-made black model that was sold with exclusivity from the vault, the neck is different looking from these new models, on account of the non-manufactured process

You should do a little research. Looks can be deceiving.

I suppose you think the M1 and M2 drivers the tour players use are just like the ones in the stores......

TM has been infamous over the years for having three or four models of their current drivers, fairways, irons, wedges, and putters that look just like the retail version but are not like the retail version. These models are made for tour players.

Sergio's putter may LOOK like the OTR model, but I assure you it is not. Just as his driver, irons, woods, etc. look like OTR equipment. Again, not the case.
That is why some folks and a lot of WRXers pay big bucks for something that is "Tour Issue"

So, here are my thoughts.  I have rolled the DJ/JD and love how my stroke feels with both.  It reminds my of the original Black Futura putter!  My stroke just stays perfect.  Now here is the problem, the insert.......to me........does not feel like a $300 insert.  I am not saying it is bad, it just does not have that high dollar feel that I expect.

Golf clubs are like girls, one guys 10 is another guys 2.5.

That and no matter how much you love a new putter you want to buy, someone...somewhere... is already sick of its s***.

Why is the feel of the insert so important ? The ball rolls where I aim it and that's all that matters to me.
Granted, I did enjoy the TING sound of my Newport Beach (with a slit in the sole) so maybe I do care but prefer harder putters.

Regarding the tour usage: it was high enough to persuade a drunken me to order one without trying one, and it's one of the best drunken internet purchases I've ever made.

Biggest thing I've noticed between my anser and this putter is, the ball comes off the face very soft.  If you can nail down the distance control with it, it's a great putter.
