TaylorMade Golf Company Introduces Spider Mini Putters

Already Successful on Tour, Spider Mini Delivers Premium Pure Roll Performance in Refined Spider Design

CARLSBAD, CA – TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in product innovation and technology and makers of one of the most sought-after putters on Tour in Spider Tour, announced today the expansion of its benchmark product platform with the introduction of Spider Mini, a wingless design to deliver the performance characteristics of the original Spider Tour putters in a more streamlined, minimalistic design.  

Overall, the construction of the Spider Mini has a 15% reduction in head size compared to Spider Tour while still delivering the stability and high MOI properties as its bigger sibling still with a 355g head weight. The smaller head size results in a movement forward in CG from 37mm to 30mm away from the leading edge; enabling the release of the putter head easier through the hitting area of the stroke – more similar to that of a blade putter.

Spider Mini also incorporates TaylorMade’s patented, Tour proven Pure Roll® insert, which combines 45° grooves with a softer polymer to increase topspin and improve forward roll across varying surfaces – helping the golf ball start and stay on its intended line. Redesigned steel weights cast directly into the putter’s head provide precise and consistent balance, while an adjustable sole weight allows for players who seek heavier options the ability to customize to their preference. Additional weights (sold separately) are available in 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 15 and 20g options. 

Derived from Tour player feedback, the new T-sightline encourages proper alignment and a square club face. The new sightline’s depth mimics the dimensions of a classic blade putter to provide a seamless transition for golfers exploring mallet shaping and has been praised by players seeking alternative options to a through-line or current alignment options.

BIG MAX Launches Award Winning Golf Bag Line in U.S.

#1 European golf bag brand, BIG MAX, launches AQUA and DRI LITE technology in U.S. market.

UNITED KINGDOM – BIG MAX, Europe’s most owned Push Cart brand and #1 European Golf Bag brand, is launching its award winning technology to the U.S. market. With five great looking designs across two award winning technologies – AQUA and DRI LITE – BIG MAX golf bags are set to make a huge impact when they arrive at retail this June.

The technology underpinning the AQUA line is the new DROP STOP system that guarantees the bags are 100% waterproof. Using waterproof fabric with unprecedented waterproof rating of over 10.000mm*, sealed seams and specially designed Japanese waterproof zippers, the AQUA range delivers an unrivalled level of design and waterproofing using ultra-lightweight, tear resistant and washable materials.

DRI LITE technology delivers a washable, water resistant golf bag that is the equal of what most brands in the market call ‘Waterproof’. Most other brands would call DRI LITE waterproof, but with the time and expertise taken to ensure the AQUA range is 100% waterproof, BIG MAX are happy to call DRI LITE water resistant, knowing it will keep all but the wettest, winter days at bay.

With two award winning technologies at the heart of the construction, each bag in the series is strong, stylish, waterproof and washable. And with a range of excellent features combined with a unique, cool Euro look and feel the new BIG MAX line is the complete package.
