TaylorMade is expanding the Spider putter family with the all-new Spider FCG (Forward Center of Gravity).
Featuring an all-new True Path T-Sightline, Spider FCG resembles a more traditional mallet shape compared to other Spider designs. The optically engineered alignment feature allows the golfer to aim with the front edge and/or the vertical line, creating a perpendicular alignment aid. Rich aesthetics are brought to life through contrasting colors, sharp lines and copper accents.
The challenge of engineering a mallet with blade-like performance starts with CG placement. In traditional mallet designs, much of the weight is in the perimeter and rear of the putter head – which helps to increase MOI and enhance distance control. With Spider FCG, 2/3 of the total head weight is located in the anterior, allowing the toe to rotate around that center of mass.
In order to front-load the head, an adjustable weight port was positioned on the sole of the putter directly behind the face. Heavy heel and toe tungsten weights account for more than 100g of weight, while a lightweight rear canopy rounds out the shape.
Further adding to the forward CG properties is the CU29 Pure Roll insert. Crafted from 100% pure copper, this 25g insert is the heaviest TaylorMade has ever constructed. However, like other Pure Roll designs, its 45° grooves are engineered to help increase topspin and improve forward roll across varying surfaces – helping the ball start and stay on its intended line. In addition to the performance attributes, the metal insert is meant to deliver a firmer feel.
Spider FCG is available in three different hosel types, each meant for a different style of putting stroke. The Short Slant hosel offers 46° of toe hang to fit golfers with a significant amount of face rotation. The L-Neck has 25° of toe hang for golfers with moderate face rotation and the Single Bend is the most face balanced of the three – better aligning with golfers who have minimal rotation in the putting stroke.
Starting early September, Club Champion will offer Spider FCG demos in both RH and LH.
