Spider Insert

Fair warning: I realize this is absurd and that my answer should be “play the spider”

 

Ive had a TM spider X for years. It is nearly my perfect default speed, by which I mean I don’t have to think about speed with this putter, it feels intuitive and natural. 

 

The catch is that I don’t love looking down at it. I’ve tried other putters and struggled to find something that works as well (white hot og felt too soft from distance, I’m all over the map with milled putters). 

 

So here’s my question: can anyone tell me about the spider insert? Is it thought of as hot/firm? Are all TM inserts the same? Any similar insert putters?

 

Again, I know it’s a fool’s errand, but I thought I’d see what wisdom is out there. 

 

Thanks!

The TaylorMade inserts over the last 10 years have ranged from very soft, to firm.  The Aluminum insert in the DJ spider is quite firm, so is the black insert in any of the My TP custom putters.  The white pure roll in the spider x is on the softer side, it is close to the same as the PIng Sigma line in feel in my opinion.

Not sure if this is correct regarding the TP putters, I think it’s the same pureroll insert as the Spider X and TP Hydroblast lineup - you just have the option to customize the color of the insert

What are you wanting to look at? The taylormade blades have the same insert or extremely close? 

Reasonable question I’m open to a blade or mid-mallet. 

 

 

Im surprised to hear the pure roll is considered on the softer side! I’d assumed it was firm-ish, though that would explain why I’m so bad with milled putters. Appreciate the feedback!

The black inserts are not the same material used as the colored inserts in the my TP's, I can absolutely confirm that.  The colored inserts are all the aluminum faces, and much firmer like the DJ face, and then the black is a slightly firmer Spider X pureroll.

Gotcha, didn’t know that about the MyTP’s. Just assumed it was the same insert since they’re both called “Pureroll”, whereas the new inserts in the 2022 GT line is “Pureroll 2”
