I wonder which model Rors bags this year?

I'd be shocked if he starts the year using anything besides his current Mullen. He seems to have settled on that.

Love the copper, but wish there was a flow neck on that Mullen with a single line. Just canít quite get it right.  Iím not a fan of the double lines on the silver model either.  Also bummed thereís no black or even silver tour spider with sightline.  Oh well, the Soto could be an option.

Also with all of the hosel configurations and different sight lines they seem to be expiermenting with I wish they would open up a custom shop for the spider.  Why not  charge a little more and pick sighline, hosel, weight, color, etc.... seems easier than trying to make 17 different versions of the spider.  Iím biased, Iíve played the spider for around 10 years.  Rant over

No, the DJ insert was the 80/20 Pure Roll, which is 80% Surlyn with some aluminum mixed in to make it feel a little firmer. The insert in the Spider Tour Red is 100% Surlyn. The Aluminum insert is just that, aluminum. It's what was in the first run of the Spider limited and is what's been in their TP putters.

I have no idea other than trying the putter to see what face you are getting. I have seen black and silver plastic inserts, black and silver metal inserts ( that feel awful), and black and silver metal inserts where the grooves are filled with a white urethane substance (that squeezes out over time and must be trimmed back to flat). The filled ones are the best hands down for feel. Originally came in Red Spider with alignment white line, black face balanced shaft, black plastic fake weight screws. Said limited on sole not tour.. Havenít seen the metal or metal filled faces in a long time, mostly plastic. Only saw one that was a carbon tru roll (on tour proto)

The rep was showing the arc last fall and most of the buyers thought it wasnít great looking..

Posted this in the Rory WITB thread, too.  I saw on Instagram (reputable source) that the RED insert in his putter is aluminum.  Interesting and I wonder if TM will offer that in any of the upcoming models?!  I thought I had a while back that DJ's spider insert (his actual one, not retail) was aluminun as well.  From softest to firmest it goes surlyn -->  80/20 --> aluminum.  

Apparently the Spider Platinum randomly had an aluminum insert.  But, of course that's the model that doesn't fit my stroke.  

Hopefully TM throws that option in a slant next spider this year....

The TP line has an aluminum insert.

INTERESTING!  I have a DJ Spider limited and a non-limited (I think) and I've never even noticed the difference!  HA.  That being said, I use one of them, primarily and the other sits in my basement as a backup.  (Yes, I'm crazy and have several of the spider variations (long time loyalist of this head shape)).  I'l have to compare, tonight, and see.  The difference has to be pretty subtle as the difference even between the surlyn and aluminum isn't too drastic.  

Now, just to be clear, by LIMITED you mean the ones that had the "Itsy Bitsy" sole plate, right?  Or do you mean the Vault released one?  It's dizzying!

Good looking out man; you know your stuff!  I thought I understood the MILLION variations on the spider releases...but, clearly not.

The Aluminum insert is just that, aluminum. It's what was in the first run of the Spider limited and is what's been in their TP putters.

Great info here - didn't see this until now/after I posted!  So, which Spider had the aluminum?  Limited?  Platinum?  Will any new ones?

The Spider Limited (both black/red and red) had the aluminum insert. I believe the Platinum does, also, but I'm not 100% on that. Fairly certain, though.

I don't have any inside info on 2018, but based on the images that were posted earlier on page 1 of the thread, it looks like 2018 Spiders will have the same inserts for black and red as they had in 2017, and silver will have the same Surlyn insert as the red.

The TP line has an aluminum insert.

INTERESTING!  I have a DJ Spider limited and a non-limited (I think) and I've never even noticed the difference!  HA.  That being said, I use one of them, primarily and the other sits in my basement as a backup.  (Yes, I'm crazy and have several of the spider variations (long time loyalist of this head shape)).  I'l have to compare, tonight, and see.  The difference has to be pretty subtle as the difference even between the surlyn and aluminum isn't too drastic.  

Now, just to be clear, by LIMITED you mean the ones that had the "Itsy Bitsy" sole plate, right?  Or do you mean the Vault released one?  It's dizzying!

Good looking out man; you know your stuff!  I thought I understood the MILLION variations on the spider releases...but, clearly not.

I was trying to keep the discussion within the context of the putters available at retail, i.e., not through the Vault. If we open it up to those, then there was the original JDay Proto released that used the 80/20, the DJ release was an 80/20, and the Red release was aluminum. All of these had the current Spider Tour headshape, but had an Itsy Bitsy sole plate (My JDay and DJ had the Japan Itsy Bitsy "Ghost Spider" sole plate, the Red has the Spider Limited sole plate).

When I speak of the Spider Limiteds, I'm talking about the ones that were released online (not Vault) in the current Spider Tour headshape, but they had a sight line and a double bend shaft. There were two models, the Black/Red version with a chrome shaft, and the all Red with a black shaft. Both of these had the aluminum insert and a Spider Limited Itsy Bitsy sole plate.

I traded my Spider Limited Red here on the BST, but I still have the JDay Proto, the DJ Vault release, and the Red vault release. And a couple of Ghost Spider S tour issue variants.

Ah, I get you.  Following you, now.  The Limiteds with the double-bend sightline ones definitely had aluminum.  They were just face-balanced and don't fit me as well as the slant neck.  I had one of those, though, and sold it.  Felt pretty similar to the 80/20 by recollection but I never compared the two putt to putt.

Thanks for clarifying!  Also, GREAT Spider collection!  You've got some cool ones in there!

So I have a somewhat Straight putting stroke. The spider arc description says it's for SBST strokes as it is face balanced. But then the description also says there is a 32 degree toe hang.

Which is it?

I was told today the TP Black Copper Putters release in April.  That sucks.
April?! The guy at my local store said mid Feb but obviously that's not true - maybe he meant the new Spiders. My dad is in desperate need of a new putter. He loves my Ardmore 3 but would prefer it was an L neck.
