Taylormade ghost spider s
Posted 27 October 2012 - 02:07 AM
The size is good too, slightly smaller than the original spider but a little larger than the itsy bitsy.
The only thing I wasn't impressed with is the velcro in the headcover. I was hoping it would be magnetic like the other ghost or original headcovers.

Had a Ghost Daytona before but this, plus a slightly larger grip and I feel like I'm cheating!
My mate has tried it and is thinking to get one too (admitedly a couple of others didn't like it) but if it suits your style then they are awesome.
I will echo that I was disappointed in the velco clasp on the headcover tho.

I also picked up a Golo S on the BST here that it's working great for me, so I';ll stick with that one.
I think this is it. I was hoping for it to look just like the original Spider and just be smaller. Would like to stick the shaft out of my ghost in one and se how it sets up

It was an Awesome game. Love my buddy JJ Watt. I'm really liking this putter. I had some reservations about the single bend shaft, but it's not an issue at all. Rolls beautifully.

I have no clue what kind of face the Ghost has, but mine has grooves and the grit finds them.......sheesh. I do love the putter and it's not going anywhere.

How can the bend this shaft exactly to get flow of the putter head...sorry they can't.
Choosing a bent putter shaft is more miss than hit in regards to flat line oscillation aka flow, also putter flex varies in 'un-spined' putter shafts, and we all know the steel putter shaft has a spine, so were is it in the head?
In choosing the spider putter I opted for the Itzy bitzy, straight shaft, with neck of 1 shaft width offset, from there I spined the shaft and got flow.
I like a shorter putter 33.5 and a tad more upright, as I hold my hands side on to a Super Stroke slim 30 grip, being a tad shorter, and loosing head feel or swing weight, I added some lead tape (cut vertically in half) to the weights (one wrap on the toe weight, two wraps on the heal weight)
This is my best accurate (besides Scotty Redx), and controllable putter in years, and its forgiving on slight miss hits
Due to the bigger head (and the orig spider i consider 'to big'), I focus on a smooth back swing and transition to forward stroke, and it works well...if get a little quick like most people used to a smaller putter heads... your timing will be off, usually a push
The last thing I will mention if you are playing a longer length like a 35" you must be very smooth pendulum like to move the mass...but its technique you will soon dial in I am sure.
I hope Taylormade put some 'faced balanced' straight shaft options out soon too...as well as a sight line that is longer covering the face and further back.
With all this technology like screw in adjustable hosel & weights for drivers, I feel putters have been overlooked for adjustment.
It would be nice if stores like Golfsmith add a putter loft n lie bending machine for repair customers, as quite often the 4 deg of loft is not enough for municipal courses, were greens are slower and the grass is less tightly mowed.

Why not just have the shaft re-epoxied?
