    If anyone has access to an operator H can you post a pic of the toe hang? If possible side by side with the Spider slant neck. They should be the same, or close. All I have access to is the double bend at the moment.

    Hate to bump an old topic, but can't find this info anywhere.

    I have putted with a Spider for a year now and have wanted to try the Operator to compare. I like the comparisons so far and the look at address seems almost identical. Does the putter feel heavier compared to a Spider? It looks like it would be a very heavy putter

    It all depends on what weight you opt for. I believe it's available in 350, 375 and 400. I also have a Spider Tour (red) and found it way too light initially. I ended up going on to ebay and buying 2x 16g weights for it. I have no idea what it increased the overall head weight to, but it transformed the putter.

    I have one and have been swapping between it and a Byron longneck DH89... The toe hang for both is the same about 32 degrees... Right now I can't miss with the Byron so that's in the bag. The Operator is a better Spider imho, mine came in at 365g and I have a weight kit coming, but the weight is good. And as my 2 puttters hang the some, and the Byron weighs in at about 362, the putter are pretty much interchangeable. It's a solid putter, I love it, if you liked the Spider you'll love the Operator. The PXG customer service on the other hand... Jury is still out.

    My instructor is a former PGA Tour winner and was perennially ranked in the top 20 in putting. During a recent lesson, he grabbed my Operator and putted for a few minutes. His two comments were, “This is one of the best feeling putters I have ever seen”; and “If I was going back out on Tour tomorrow, I would use this putter”.

    Is it possible to order a PXG putter? Or do you have to go get fit?

    You would need to order from an authorized PXG fitter.

    If you find an authorised dealer you can give them the specs you want, and they’ll order it. I bought my Operator H through Scottsdalegolf.co.uk. I believe they ship worldwide, but probably much cheaper if you find somewhere similar in the US.

    I had a few issues with my Operator H but eventually PXG worked it all out and I'm happy. I have said it before and I'l say it again, it's a better Spider. The PXG putters are exceptional and I am surprised I havn't seen more of them in play. In fact I have never ran into another player who is gaming one.



    The steel face feels much more solid than the insert in the spiders and the balance is very good.



    While I was never a PXG hater, I definitely didn't see myself having any PXG clubs in my bag, but I now have 2, the putter and a driving iron, and personally I think they are worth every penny.

    Do you mind sharing the discrepancy with the putter? I'm thinking about getting one.




    The putter came with a small ding/paint chip on the crown. I was reluctant to send it back because I was making everything with it and Ioved the set up. I tried touching it up with matte black auto paint and it was close, but still kind of distracting, especially in sunlight. They offered to replace it but there was some confusion on their end as the order was placed for me by a friend through his country club. The PXG rep only visits the private country clubs and they don't let people like me into places like that. In fact to test the putter and the DI the rep left me the clubs to try for a week.



    So when I gave PXG the order # it wasn't in my name. I ended up getting the reps # (who I hadn't met yet) and he took care of everything and even came to my house to pick up the putter. A few weeks later I got a new replacement in the exact specs I ordered.

    I reached out to them on Twitter and they called me and said I could order over the phone. I'm setting this up as my Christmas gift. I told them exactly what I wanted and the person said she would save the order, all that was needed was for someone to call and pay for it.

    I want to say I paid $450 for mine but I could be off. Look up MyClubMaker in Shelby NC. Bryant is a PXG dealer and a great guy to deal with. He's been fair with me on several clubs and has good reviews here on the deal or no deal boards.

    My wife gave me a putter fitting at Club Champion for Christmas. I went up there a week ago for my fitting. I've been using face balanced mallet style putters for years but after being on the SAM lab, I need a strong toe hang mallet putter. I tried out several including Bettinardi, TM, a couple of Scottys, Odyssey and the PXG operator H. I don't remember all of the other models for the different brands but the Operator just felt the best and performed great. Comparisons honestly weren't even close. So I went ahead and ordered one. If you haven't done a SAM lab putter fitting, I'd highly recommend it, I learned a ton about my putting stroke that I wouldn't have ever known. The putter fitting is usually $100 but Club Champion is offering 33% off till 1/31 so that discount covered the cost of the upcharged grip. Otherwise putter was the $450 mentioned above. In a week or so when the putter comes in, I'll post some pics of it. I hope all of this transfers well to the course.
