I added 12’s and has made a great putter even better. Keeps my hands steady. I have a 34”.

I have two 12 gram weights in mine at 34". Makes the putter on the heavier side for sure but I like the stability. 

Does TaylorMade not allow returns on weights?

I got (2) 6g weights but have thought about getting (2) 12's since going Left Hand Low recently to keep it more stable. Going from the stock 2g weights in my 35" to 6g made a huge difference in feel and controlling tempo

I bought mine from TM direct and they shipped/arrived within 5 days (non business).

Direct from TM. Like $23 with tax. Well worth it.

So I went to 12g weights and I kind of regret it. I liked the stock weights to be honest but for some reason I thought they were 6g and not 2g. My putter feels super heavy now, didn't think it'd make that much of a difference. 

 

I think 6g might've been the right move but I'll test it out a bit longer and see how it goes.

I bought the six and then switched back to stock. Felt like I was leaving a lot of putts short. 

 

That's interesting to hear that 4g extra gives you enough feel to leave putts short. I always thought (for whatever reason) TM didn't sell weights for Spider X. But now that I know they sell 2, 6, and 12g, I'll have to check it out and likely buy the 6g and 12g to mess around. I'd imagine going from 2g to 12g will definitely feel different.

I ended up getting the 6g weights because it seemed too extreme to go to 12g weights. I've been happy with the 6g weights and I think the weight is a little better than stock, but not too heavy.. My putter was cut down an inch, so that affected the swing weight, but I still think the 6g weights are an improvement.

 

I would be interested to try the 12g weights at some point if I can find them somewhere that allows returns.

Experimented with 8g and found it a bit heavy with a loss in ‘feel’ if that makes sense...

 

Got the weights originally from a reseller on eBay (The kit came with pairs of 8, 10 and 12g weights)...


6g weights ordered from Taylormade ended up being perfect for me. 

 

The 8g were too heavy, can’t imagine the 10/12g weights working, but it’s all subjective I suppose.

Do you need to buy the wrench for the added weights? Does the TM driver wrench work? 

The TaylorMade driver wrench works just fine. It is was I used to change the weights on my spider x from 2 grams to 12 grams. Just don’t go crazy and over tighten like you can on the driver.
