TAYLORMADE Golf has announced the latest addition to the family of Spider putters – the all-new Spider FCG (Forward Center of Gravity).
At the core of the Spider design is a legacy of advanced materials and exceptional stability. That remains true with the Spider FCG – it upholds the tradition while performing like a blade.
Featuring a new True Path T-Sightline, the Spider FCG resembles a more traditional mallet shape compared to other Spider designs.
The optically engineered alignment feature allows the golfer to aim with the front edge and/or the vertical line, creating a perpendicular alignment aid.
Rich aesthetics are brought to life through contrasting colours, sharp lines and copper accents.
The challenge of engineering a mallet with blade-like performance starts with the centre of gravity placement. In traditional mallet designs, much of the weight is in the perimeter and rear of the putter head – which helps to increase the MOI and enhance distance control. With the Spider FCG two-thirds of the total head weight is located in the anterior, allowing the toe to rotate around that centre of mass. In order to front-load the head, an adjustable weight port was positioned on the sole, directly behind the face.
Heavy heel and toe tungsten weights account for more than 100g of weight,
while a lightweight rear canopy rounds out the shape.
Crafted from 100% copper, the 25g insert is the heaviest TaylorMade has constructed.
Like other Pure Roll designs, its 45° grooves are engineered to increase topspin and improve forward roll
– helping the ball start and stay on its intended line. In addition, the metal insert delivers a firmer feel and adds to the blade-like performance.
The Spider FCG retails at RM1,970 and comes equipped with a KBS Stepless Black CT shaftand Super Stroke Pistol black/white grip.
