Fans of forgiving putters had better start saving their pennies as TaylorMade launches the TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Monza Spider putter.
the cleverly titled putter is a more compact version of the acclaimed TaylorMade Spider Putter, which has won so many fans on Tour.
As its name suggests, the TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Monza Spider is smaller than the original Monza Spider and was made after tour pros started asking for a Spider putter that, like the original, is extremely forgiving, easy to aim and delivers excellent roll. However, the Itsy Bitsy is for a different type of player than the Monza Spider.
At first glance the Itsy Bitsy Monza Spider looks just like the Monza Spider, only smaller. Look closely, though, and you'll see two visual differences. 1) The "wings" of the Itsy Bitsy have been pulled inward and don't protrude out to the sides as much. 2) The alignment aid is an abbreviated version of the original. Whereas the decal on the Monza Spider is referred to as "full-court alignment" (alluding to the lines on a basketball court), the alignment aid on the Itsy Bitsy is called "half-court alignment."
Expect to find the TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Monza Spider in the shops at around £139.
