Not that long ago, most elite golfers and recreational players used heel-toe-weighted blade putters. Mallets were for golfers who needed help or who tried to make a straight-back-straight-through putting stroke. But starting in 2016, TaylorMade began having success with mid-sized mallets that were ideally balanced and weighted for golfers who have a slightly arched stroke. The first Spider putters caught on because blade users could keep using the same stroke with the added forgiveness of a mallet.
Since then, TaylorMade has refined and worked to improve the performance of the Spider line. In 2019 there was Spider X, and in 2021 the company released Spider ES.
Now with the release of Spider GT, the company is trying to push the concepts further and help golfers gain consistency on the greens.
