TAYLORMADE GHOST SPIDER MALLET/DADDY LONG LEGS
STREET PRICE:$200. Two models (Daddy Long Legs, shown)
TECH TALK: These counterbalanced putters feature wider, heavier grips and more total weight than previous models for improved stability. Example: The Spider Mallet has a 360-gram head counterbalanced with a 130-gram grip to increase the MOI. Grooves on the Surlyn face insert are designed to reduce initial spin for a smoother roll.
(L) "Even though the Daddy Long Legs is large, it's easy to stroke properly. It sits square without manipulation, and the alignment aid frames the ball nicely at address." (M) "Distance control was my favorite selling point. Putts finished within two or three inches of one another."
HOT: A complete commitment to counterbalancing, especially in the grip. Hard to beat Daddy Long Legs' MOI.
NOT: The Spider Mallet head seemed a tad light by comparison.
