Meet The Spi­der Mini Put­ters

De­liv­er­ing Pure Roll per­for­mance in a re­fined Spi­der de­sign

Golf Asia - - CONTENTS -

Taylormade Golf’s Spi­der Mini is a win­g­less de­sign de­liv­er­ing the per­for­mance char­ac­ter­is­tics of the orig­i­nal Spi­der Tour put­ters in a more stream­lined, min­i­mal­is­tic con­struct. Over­all, the con­struc­tion of the Spi­der Mini has a 15% re­duc­tion in head size com­pared to the Spi­der Tour while still de­liv­er­ing the sta­bil­ity and high MOI prop­er­ties as its big­ger sib­ling whilst still re­tain­ing a 355g head weight. The smaller head size re­sults in a for­ward move­ment of CG from 37mm to 30mm away from the lead­ing edge; en­abling the re­lease of the put­ter head eas­ier through the hit­ting area of the stroke, sim­i­lar to that of a blade put­ter.

Spi­der Mini also in­cor­po­rates Taylormade’s patented, tour proven Pure Roll insert, which com­bines 45° grooves with a softer poly­mer to in­crease top­spin and im­prove for­ward roll across vary­ing sur­faces to help the golf ball start and stay on its in­tended line. Re­designed steel weights cast di­rectly into the put­ter’s head pro­vide pre­cise and con­sis­tent bal­ance, while an ad­justable sole weight al­lows play­ers who seek heav­ier op­tions the abil­ity to cus­tomise to their pref­er­ence. Ad­di­tional weights (sold sep­a­rately) are avail­able in 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 15 and 20g op­tions.

De­rived from tour player feed­back, the new T-sight­line en­cour­ages proper align­ment and a square club face. The new sight­line’s depth mim­ics the di­men­sions of a clas­sic blade put­ter to pro­vide a seam­less tran­si­tion for golfers ex­plor­ing mal­let shap­ing and has been praised by play­ers seek­ing al­ter­na­tive op­tions to a through-line or cur­rent align­ment op­tions.

"Spi­der Mini gives golfers a brand-new look and feel while still re­main­ing very much a part of the Spi­der Tour fam­ily. It has the same Pure Roll insert and presents many of the same fea­tures that make Spi­der such a suc­cess­ful put­ter, but it is de­liv­ered in a scaled-down shape for those seek­ing a smaller foot­print with­out sac­ri­fic­ing stable, high-moi per­for­mance," adds Chris Trott, Taylormade Tour Man­ager.

Spi­der Mini will be of­fered in both right and left-hand mod­els in a Tour Red or Di­a­mond Sil­ver fin­ish with a dou­ble bend shaft. Equipped with a Su­per­stroke Pis­tol GTR 1.0 grip and in 33", 34" & 35" lengths, each model is face-bal­anced and fea­tures Taylormade's tour-proven alu­minium Pure Roll insert.

Porter­line Golf’s un­fail­ing fo­cus is in de­sign­ing and en­gi­neer­ing hy­brid golf bags that com­bine a travel case and a golf bag into one sin­gle piece of con­ve­nient and func­tional equip­ment es­sen­tial for the trav­el­ling golfer. Porter­line has set a very high bench­mark on travel golf bags in the in­dus­try be­gin­ning with their first prod­uct, the Sky­porter, a bag that com­bines a hard top, a digit lock and wheels. It can be taken onto the golf course right af­ter golfers get off the plane or ship, with no clumsy hous­ing or hard shell to con­tend with. An im­por­tant fea­ture that is con­tin­ued through­out the rest of their prod­uct lines.

Not con­tent with their cur­rent range, Porter­line has once again made huge strides in de­sign and ma­te­rial us­age for its di­verse range of hy­brid golf bags. As ev­i­dent from the new cheery graph­ics on the easy rolling and han­dling on the 901m, the stylishly clas­sic yet func­tional 909s and the ever pop­u­lar light­weight 908S which is no light­weight when it comes to its fea­tures.
