    Went and checked these out today. I was thinking I would buy the copper/bronze, however, I liked the blue more.



    I previously used the spider black for a couple seasons and I think this is definitely better — so I got one. Ha ha.

    Ekk, you are giving me second thoughts after ordering the copper. That blue does look good.

    After getting my stock in hand, the blue/white is definitely going to be the big seller this year in my opinion. The supply looks like it's already getting low in our ordering portal.

    When I was looking in the portal at the end of the week, a length or two of the blue/white were already slipping into April availability.

    Is it worrisome to anyone else on here that the only person from TM putting this in play is Rory? Doesn’t seem to be catching on with the rest of their pros




    You're joking, right? No one asks if it's worrisome that Odyssey and Scotty guys haven't put new putters in the bag after only 4 weeks of being available, so why is it a thing for this new putter? When have players ever rushed to replace old putters with a new model at the start of the year? Drivers, yes. Putters, no.



    But if you really want to go down this line of thinking, here are my thoughts:
    • DJ will play it at some point. It's a given with the way he switches putters.
    • Day led the PGA Tour in SG Putting in 2016 and was second in 2018. Why would he switch?
    • I think we'll see Rahm using one sooner rather than later.
    • Tiger...hahaha. But I'd love to see him use it.





    I always find it funny that TM gets all of the hate. Not a lot of Odyssey guys, and definitely no SC guys, use the newest offerings (or even versions that are available at retail). I'd be surprised to see any SC guys use one of the new "Phantom X" putters, those things are hideous. I've always appreciated that at least with TM (minus DJ's TP without an insert) the majority of pros using their putters are using a version similar if not the same as the retail versions. And don't argue that if I wanted to spend $$$ I could have a SC Tour Only putter too.




    They bring every ounce of it on themselves.



    They are the over promising , under delivering money spenders of the club world. They have bought up every major player they can. And now we shall see if they can pay for them. My money says someone else will buy or merge with them soon once they realize they are in need of a bailout. Again.



    The ironic part is that I think they could sell just as much on half the ad and player endorsement budget. The clubs aren’t the issue. They are solid. The issue is they promise them to be miracle workers not solid options.


    That's what marketing is all about! Of course they claim their clubs are amazing, so does every other brand. Nobody markets their clubs by saying "these are solid clubs that won't blow away the competition but won't be worse than what you've already got"

    That post was a perfect example of perpetuating the initial TM hate party.

    I will say the headcover quality is much improved with the Spider X. Thick leather that will last longer than the past headcovers.



    I was watching Rick Shiels review of the Spider X and he mentioned there will be custom options with the color and sight line coming out (My Spider presumably). Anyone have any info on when Spider X will be available via My Spider?

    So truth equals hate ? Marketing hasn’t always been about lies. If you believe they are cor testing each head they build I’ve got some property for sale. No need for a loook. Just sign.



    Hard to label me a hater when the best club in my bag has been a TM 3 wood since early 2017. And I’ve sung it’s praises to anyone who listens.







    To the point of the thread. I like the look of the blue myself. And if it has a little more click than the red it maybe a winner.

    Based on the ones I saw, I preferred the blue also. Weight also seemed better/more balanced over the original spider. Price is steep but it rolled nice... I'll probably get one after a few bad putting rounds.

    I found the tour to be sweet if the greens were fast enough. I could not get the ball to the hole with slower greens, or just felt like I had to stand on it. I think the X looks super nice but wonder if it will be firm enough for slower greens (I know this is an Indian problem, not the arrow)for me. My other question is about durability...the SC and Odyssey lines seem to hold up better.

    I don't know if others have any of these thoughts...and I still may want one :-) Just not sure?

    How do they feel? I've always thought the spiders felt really hollow, did they improve this at all?

    They feel great, can only compare to the 2017 spider tour black but it’s better.



    Here in Canada my local golftown has them in stock, that’s where I purchased mine.

    I too was surprised they didn't make a navy in the single bend but I'm also shocked to see a bunch of the old Corsa red top grips on the tour demos, and not available for purchase. I did find one online though and will be swapping mine out when it arrives.

    Nothing in store yet to demo. In fact, I called Golf Galaxy and PGA SS and they said they can't be on the floor until the 15th as that is the official release date.

    My local shop had them all out and for sale yesterday. I love the look with the wide white alignment and both colors looked plenty nice to put in the bag. I think I liked looking down at the copper the most and probably liked the blue for setting in the bag LOL.

    As for feel, for sure firmer than the tour red (most putters are IMO). So, I loved the look but did not roll any of them particularly well. My wife (who got an early valentines bracelet last weekend) wants me to pick out a new putter by today (what a horrible situation :-) ). I thought the X would be the one but I rolled the Odyssey O Works Jailbird Mini, the 7, and a SC Newport 3 better yesterday. I will go back today for a work break and roll them once more. I want to love the X, but yesterday it did not happen. FWIW, I am a left hand low very average putter and maybe those two traits don't work well with the X ?

    They look great though. If you love your tour, this one will feel different so? It does line up better IMO. And if you want more firm...then you will probably want to upgrade IMO.

    They were in stock at my local store. I did notice they felt a lot more solid and a bit heavier than my previous spider. Not sure what insert is in it (harder or softer) but it felt like it was the softer one.



    I did prefer the blue also with the white stripe down the center. It did feel really good

    Have heard some people say that the insert is firm on these. I'm hoping not too firm. I got away from the PING Voss and went to the Spider Tour for stability and the way the soft insert felt.....We'll see how they roll Friday.

    For me it feels like the original WhiteHot insert on the good putts, a touch clicky on the not-so-good ones, but they still get going in terms of pace control
