Big improvement from my traditional blade
June 16, 2015
I've used a 34" blade putter for about 6 years. I had moderate success with it, but struggled with lag putting and consistency. The Spider SI is a wonderful addition to my bag because it is so easy to line up and so easy to create a consistent backswing.
Pros:Sometimes it feels like your putter is on a track that will virtually guarantee a good stroke. The face balanced model is perfect for someone like me with a straight back, straight through stroke. The #1 best feature of this putter is the consistency it creates.
Cons:On rare occasions when you mishit this putter, the toe or heel strikes are not great. I feel that a toed strike with this putter is much worse than with my old traditional blade style putter. That said, off center strikes happen much less often with the Spider.
