While TaylorMade’s Spider family of putters has been successful for seven years, the company knows there are some players who want a mallet and the benefits of a Spider, but they also want something that looks slightly more traditional. For them, the company is offering the Spider GT Rollback, Notchback and Splitback, three putters that have time-tested looks and modern technologies to help create a better roll.
All three putters – the Spider GT Rollback, Notchback and Splitback – feature TaylorMade’s new Pure Roll 2 groove face insert. The silver-toned beams that stretch across the face are pointed downward at a 45-degree angle to better grab the back of the ball and help get it rolling instead of skidding.

The black thermoplastic polyurethane material that holds the grooves is 23 percent firmer to compensate for the softness of many modern golf balls. At impact, golfers should hear a higher-pitched click and feel a firmer strike.
All three putters also have a tri-sole design, so when a golfer sets the putter behind the ball it should lay flat more easily and set up properly.
