Anyone here gaming this putter? I demoed it in the pro shop and amazed by the stability during swing... Its just I don't like TM brand and also the look of big chunky head.

At the moment, my gamer is ZEN Proto using IOMIC grip. Right after I tested the TM DLL, I changed the grip to Fatso 5.0 hoping that I could get the counter balanced effect like the DDL. Haven't tested it in course though.

TM makes good putters.  Had the Spider mallet, which is very stable.
Just need to get used to aligning it correctly

The high moi head makes it fairly stable even on off centre strike.

how to increase the MOI in a putter? will you get a higher MOI by adding weight at the bottom of the head?

I am currently using a TM Spider Blader ... Fantabulous putter! This is by far the highest MOI putter that TM has ever produced!  Taylormade

 There is no words to express the feel ... U might have to try it in order to understand the beneficial aspect of using a counter-balanced putter ... Anyway, in a nutshell ... It was love at first sight when I tried it (the 35" length) at TM Cathay outlet one fine afternoon for about an hour ... It just felt different once I gripped it and made a nice smooth fluid stroke that got the ball going on a nice true roll. It must be the counter-balance in the grip I felt. All I did was, I simply took it back and started it on the line ... it just seemed to roll thru' the hitting area all on it's own naturally (maybe lateral gravity at play). The ball seemed to have eyes for the hole. I choked it down on the grip by about 3" or so. I'm not into the more pyschedelic and bulky option - Spider Daddy Long leg Mallet putter ... Thus, it is great to have a high MOI putter in a traditional blade version ... Kudos Taylormade! This is my very first investment on Taylormade putter since I started playing golf ... (Putter head - 355g; Grip - 135g)

good putt Taylormade

What's the definition of "high MOi"?

I also heard of "super tuned" putters

extracted from TM website :

Spider Blade’s head construction consists of 11 parts made of 8 materials -- 304 stainless steel, 17-4 stainless steel, aluminum, 3M Foam, tungsten, polycarbonate, Surlyn and TPU – which allowed us to take more weight out of the center of the head than with any blade we’ve ever made and ever before and  move it to the heel and toe. That’s where Spider Blade’s high MOI comes from.

Turbo, I thought the DDL has higher MOI compared to Spyder Blade (SB)?

Me myself never fond the looks of a big putter head, but I've compared the two, and I think the DDL suits me better, it felt more stable compared to SB. But both have distinct difference compared to other "normal" putter though, I suppose this time, TM's marketing gimmick really works (the so called counter balanced thing).

In Jakarta both cost around SGD350

Curious to know as well how much it cost in Singapore

Dudes, I bought it at S$229 ... Am not sure if it was a discounted or standard retail price ... I didn't bother much as I considered it reasonably priced wrt the quality/outlook and most importantly, the end result ... Very Happy

 I am not sure if the DLL has a higher MOI or not ... But I am aware that the DLL is a tad more user-friendly as I have tried both albeit I have already committed on the Spyder Blader as I am so used to a blade putter ... Anyway, I have never used a mallet putter before since I started golfing ... I dun like bulky putter as I find it rather clumsy ...

The DLL indeed does have highest MOI for TM putters but personally i feel that im more comfortable with blade putter alignment . Bought the Spider blade at 229 from cathay also but the sales guy throw in a free adidas belt and pouch haha

Loving the spider blade!

Wow that's a really good price....I'm tempted!!!

Does the DDL priced the same? Wondering if its OK to put a putter that long in baggage, I'm sure I can't bring it into the cabin right....

 Same price ... There are only two versions - 35" and 38" ... I doubt the 38"  is available in Sg as the demand is low due to the fact that there are not many 6 foot plus golfers in Sg ... Actually the putter is not that long compare to a belly putter ... Hence, you can still hand-carry it on the plane.

Last time I tried to hand carry a 35" Zen putter and the ground crew didn't allow me to bring in to cabin...they thought I would hijack the plane using a putter as a weapon....crazy.....

Last time i checked, DLL is more expensive at like $275 after discount


I tried to hunt everywhere for the 38" and there is none in sg.. you can order it thru the cathay TM store with upfront cash though

TM recommended choking down 2-3", so if I'm using 34" putter, I should get the 38" rather than the 35"??
