    Picked up this sweet cover in the Vault today.

    Me too. I’m usually against paying $80 for a HC but I love pizza and how this looks. Wished it was magnetic and really hope the velcro is better than what’s on the standard HC

    Why can’t they make one with a magnetic closure? I also like the Black Spider cover.

    Played my first round with this putter. Greens were running over 14 on the stimp and 25 mph wind gust. Brutal conditions. All things considered, I putted very well. Excellent touch and alignment.

    Our pro shop had 6 or 7 in stock. Had been testing one for a while. Strange - I noticed a definite feel difference between two identical putters - same neck / grip / etc. Hard to quantify. Anyone else notice something similar?

    I went to Club Champion today and got fitted for this putter. Out of all the putters I tried I was able to aim this putter much better than the others. I look forward to seeing my putting improve.

    I did notice that on a couple when they first came out but chalked it up to strike. Best putter I’ve ever gained

    I’ve been using a 2016 Scotty Cameron Newport 2. I have tried the DJ Spider Tour but this Spider X with the more compact size looks and feels great!

    I did try to roll this. Had a hot face, a little too hot for my liking though. I'm sure with an adjustment id be able to use it but I prefer milled faces so I'll probably stick with that. Great looking putter though!

    Anyone know if TM is going to release any more stock headcovers? Maybe the stock one but in black?

    So just bought this putter and customized it, looks like I accidentally moved the slider to weak loft instead of stronger , is it difficult to have the slant neck putter bent to a stronger loft?

    I would say if you know someone who is competent with a bending bar it won’t be an issue. I had mine bent 1* strong and 2* upright and didn’t have any issues with paint chipping etc

    If it wears anything like the previous gen Spyder the paint is going to chip a bunch anyway unless you’re unbelievably careful.

    The slant neck is so small that I don't even use a bar when I've bent mine. I just get it clamped in the jig and apply force on the shaft down near the neck to bend it. Works fine to make changes of a degree or two.

    Actually saw a pic from a couple years ago on the TM Tour Truck of one of their tech's bending Day's Itsy Bitsy in this way.

    You tightened the weight with a click of the wrench?

    For anyone that installed the 12g weights did you feel that it needed back weighting in the grip or did it feel okay with the stock grip?
