In addition the mallet-shaped Daddy Long Legs putter, TaylorMade have designed the counterbalanced Spider Blade putter, the most stable blade putter they have ever produced.

Made to combat the recent anchoring ban and offer a legal, stable putting option to all golfers, the Spider Blade is a heel-toe weighted blade built for forgiveness and stability.

Amazingly the head of the Spider Blade is made of 11 different parts constructed from 9 different materials including steel, aluminum, foam, tungsten and Surlyn. The combination of materials and pieces allowed TaylorMade's R&D team to move the weight from the centre of the head to the heel and toe.

The real secret in the Spider Blade is the 130g counterbalanced grip. By adding more weight in the longer grip, TaylorMade were able to increase the MOI of the Spider Blade to 5200, the highest MOI blade putter they have produced and up to to 50% more stable than traditional putters.

TaylorMade's Brian Bazzel told us “In addition to increasing the MOI of our putter heads, we started researching ways to keep the head from wavering from the intended swing path during the stroke - a primary cause of missed putts. We recognised that if we could make it easier to swing the putter head on-path, we could help players roll the ball down their intended line. Counterbalance helps solve that problem.”

The TaylorMade Spider Blade will be available in either a 35" or 38" model and will be released with an RRP of £159.
