“The excitement on Tour about TaylorMade’s counterbalanced putters drove the creation of our new Ghost Spider Si. It’s the ideal choice for players who want increased stroke stability and a high-MOI head in a clean, elegant shape.”
-Tomo Bystedt, Director of Product Creation Iron, Putter, Wedge
Using a heavy grip to counterbalance the weight of the head increases what we call “stroke stability,” giving you the benefits of a belly putter without the need to anchor the end of the grip against your body.
The putter almost feels like it’s on autopilot when you swing it, the head swinging smoothly on an accurate swing path, resisting manipulation by the hands and arms.
The 130-gram grip (two times the weight of a traditional grip) acts as a counterbalance to the heavy clubhead.
