Joining the Club. Just picked up a Demo Chalk Spider X at a unbelievable price.
Will report back with my impressions after a few rounds.
here you go
See picture above. It's metallic.
Thanks. Don't recall seeing that particular color combo but if the face is metallic (as it appears to be) it's the older, firmer insert, not the current one.
As mentioned earlier I've only seen ONE "mini" in my local PGATSS since it was re-released (6 months ago ?) with the current insert. Have to wonder why,,,,,,,
Watching the Kapalua tournament at the moment and Dustin is playing, are you ready, a Spider MINI with the Surlyn insert. LOL
I guess if you're Dustin TM will find one for ya. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh, I know the difference (see previous posts).
But I also commented on how I've only seen a grand total of ONE Spider Mini with the current Surlyn insert in the stores and thought it funny that I, just last night, saw Dustin with the exact model.
Today I was on the course with my new Spider X for the first time. While the greens are horrible (5 degrees Celsius), the feel of the face is perfect. Even with the firmer Pro V1x it was a soft feel. With my old Spider Mini it was clicky. That was one reason why I played a softer ball before. Now I’m thinking about switching to the V1x. The ball decision is the last spot for my bag 2020 to decide .... ;-)
I’m not very familiar with Taylormade Spider line.
Will there be any new release in 2020?
Hoping for a lefty center shaft version in 2020. A little birdie told me it would be available in Jan.
Just dropped on the TM Vault. For those who are into these things :)
Normally I'm not much a fan of inserts cause they generally feel way too mushy and mallets I haven't found many I like looking at. But from putting with these a lot in stores I think the Spider X does a really good job at both especially with the insert feel and True-Path alignment. I'm honestly thinking about adding one too my bag or at least a very reliable back up putter.
Just cannot decide on the neck and color. I think the slant works better for me despite preferring face balance putters more. But I seem to de loft the single bend a ton. I do have a free putter fitting so will look at this when I'm there.
