maybe try and add weight for slow greens. i find the red day was very light and was good on fast icy green but wasn't good on slow greens

A guy at my local course got the red one and let me try it the other day. I found it not as well balanced as my #7 and the lack of a sight line difficult to line up. Wasn't a big fan of the feel either.

I really wanted to love the red one, really love the headcover, but the feel wasn't there for me vs my tp mills.

 

Got to give it more time

Have to eat these words now... though it didn't feel as good as my previous putter- still doesn't, the reds working out pretty well now.

... Thanks but I do not like sight lines. My problem is the size of the putter head. After playing with a thin looking heel shafted 8802 style putter for 30 years the Spider Tour is just so unwieldy, at least to my eye. But like a true golf forum member, I took it out for a farewell round yesterday and putted much better with it. I might give it a few more rounds to see if I can ignore the size and just putt like I always have.

I'm a feel putter and I really like the spider black. My distance control and speed have been very good with it. However, I have always used a bigger, heavier type putter. I recently switched to a Scotty golo3 and had to stop using it after 6 months and needed to get something bigger. I've putted pretty well with it. It doesn't make enough putts but that's because of me!

I've tested it out in stores a few times and honestly I get the best feel from it and my accuracy seems to really improve. I've tried some other brands as well and they didn't seem to give as much feedback from the face

... That's why they make putters in different sizes and shapes. :)  I do have quite a bit of lead tape on my Bobby Grace and also prefer a heavier putter, but I am just too used to the 8802 like blade I have looked down at for 40 years.

My dad just put one in the bag.  The red one.  He absolutely loves it.  Its all about confidence.  Put a brick on an end of a stick if it makes you feel you can drop puts.  If you like the feel and the look, go for it.

I just picked up the black one today, I tried both out and the black just felt better to me. I was making more putts with it then the red.

I had to kill some time in town while my lady was at an appointment. So I dropped her off and cruised down the street to the store. Was rolling the black one because it was the only one that didn't have plastic on it. I was putting really well with it, but I'm convinced their greens are rigged.

Wonder if the spider's popularity will wane a little now that DJ switched to a blade putter last weekend?

He may switch back too, but to note, he's using a Tyson Lamb-made Wayne Gretzky head cover with the putter last weekend

*cue superman theme music*

 

Dustin Johnson switched to a black spider with a black sight line 20 minutes prior to his second round overseas and shot a 63 today. 

 

http://golfweek.com/2017/10/27/dustin-johnson-shoots-63-to-take-from-brooks-koepka-lead-at-wgc-hsbc-champions/

 

Pretty amazing stuff*

 

 

* I know he's got all-world talent and could shoot a 65 with a croquet mallet but to switch putters 20 minutes before a round and fire a 63 is out of this world crazy.

Lot of people love those Spiders but they just look horrible to me when i set one down behind the ball. Just seems like too big of a head for a little slant neck putter. That and the terrible finishes that TaylorMade puts on clubs (paint chips) is a big turn off for me. But hey, whatever works for you! If I had made some putts when I tried one I would be talking about how beautiful they are lol

I went back to using the red tour spider. So much forgiveness across the face. To my surprise my Miura km 350 holds up pretty well too

I wanted one, really bad, but I couldn't find even a used one for less than 300. So found a mint cond. never games Scotty GOLO3 for 150. Got lucky. Plus I love it. Tho I'd still love a spider. Id almost trade my Scotty for a spider. I like the way they feel

I picked up a Red Spider with sight line #3 (thanks cyber week deals on budgetgolf.com)...man that sight line makes a huge difference. I know it's just like the older spiders but I was rolling it great on the greens today. We'll see how long the honeymoon lasts.

I picked up a custom tm spider with a pure big dog grip, slightly offset, thing is absolutely money. I tend to enjoy it without the alignment line but hey, to each his/her own
