TAYLORMADE SPIDER GT NOTCHBACK: A more traditional looking member of the GT family
There’s no denying the TaylorMade Spider putters are amongst the most recognisable in the world, using unique shapes and materials to deliver performance in high-MOI mallets. Now they have a whole new family and look.
TaylorMade Golf Company this week introduced the Spider GT family with four new additions to the acclaimed Spider franchise: Spider GT, Spider GT Notchback, Spider GT Rollback and Spider GT Splitback. The four models are aiming to set a new standard of performance and contemporary construction, headlined by a Spider GT with its modern wing design and ultra-lightweight top plate.
Bill Price, TaylorMade’s Senior Director Product Creation for Putters, said: “Innovation has long been the bloodline of the Spider franchise. From its optimized stability frame to its countless victories on worldwide tours, every Spider putter is designed to deliver pure performance. With Spider GT, we have created our most angular and most stable Spider ever using a new modern wing construction similar to other high stability Spider putters of the past. With the removal of weight from the center of Spider GT, we have unlocked higher MOI and more stability from every angle.”
FIRST LOOK GOLF: TAYLORMADE GT NOTCHBACK PUTTER
Spider GT Notchback blends traditional design with contemporary construction to create a time-honored shape. CG is positioned the farthest forward with Notchback’s to make face rotation easier.
Featuring a lightweight 6061 aluminum body combined with strategically placed 86g dual-tungsten weights on the outside (heel and toe), Spider GT Notchback has premier stability, forgiveness and distance control. Our records show that it produces the highest MOI ever created by a mid-size mallet Spider.
An extruded then machined aluminum head creates a stout section of material behind the face insert for a confidence-inspiring strike along with superb sound. Both Spider GT Notchback and Rollback feature a tri-sole design that allows golfers to properly set the putter square on the ground without changing the face angle.
The Spider GT Notchback will be available for preorder on 15 February and at retail shops beginning 4 March.
