TaylorMade Rossa Monza Spider Putter
Don't let its looks fool you, this is one forgiving putter! Designed to keep your putts consistently on line by increasing the weight around the perimeter, the Monza Spider will control both the speed and roll no matter where the ball is struck on the face. Off-center putts are now a thing of the past!
Here’s the first look at TaylorMade’s new Rossa Monza Spider putter. Well, let’s just say there’s a lot going on here. This is a fairly lightweight putter, due to its steel frame and black aluminum core. TaylorMade does incorporate their moveable weight technology into the Spider, putter two four-gram weights on the ends of the black core insert. If you have never putter with a high MOI, or square putter, like I call them, they are very forgiving on off-center putts. The Spider also includes the AGSI insert, this helps promote forward spin. Looking a lot like a hybrid between TaylorMade’s Tourismo putter, and their Monza Corza putters, the Spider look a lot better in person compared to the pictures on their website; but my gut reaction was that I wasn’t going to like it. Until I actually tried putting a few putts with it. This putter sets up great, and the white lines and arch really do help to square the putter up to the ball. It completely changed my opinion of the Spider. Also, the more I putted with it, the smaller it started to look. You begin not to concentrate as much on the black fins that house the weight, but more on the steel frame and white guidelines.
Overall I liked it. This is definitely a putter where looks are deceiving. Traditionalists will laugh at it, while mallet players should give it a second look. For such a large head, it does produce a smooth stroke.
