In Partnership with SuperStroke, Next-Generation Counterbalance Putter is Company’s Most Stable Offering to Date
Basingstoke, HANTS (29 June, 2015) – Two years ago, TaylorMade Golf Company brought to market the most advanced putters the company had ever created – the Daddy Long Legs and Spider Blade counterbalanced putters. In 2014, engineers added to this line with the release of the Spider Mallet counterbalance and ultra-stable Ghost Spider Si. Today, TaylorMade announced the evolution of the counter balanced range, both in terms of putter technology and performance with the release of the new Daddy Long Legs+ Putter; the most technologically-advanced and stable putter the company has ever created.
The DLL+ putter features the new SuperStroke XL 2.0 grip with 125g counter weight and a True Temper lightweight steel shaft for extreme counterbalancing to maximise stability during the stroke. The DLL+ puts 200% more weight above the hands to raises the balance point two inches to allow greater control of the heavier head. Combine this new balance point with the 8856 MOI of the DLL+ head creates the most stable overall putter TaylorMade has ever created.
Crafted incorporating feedback from TaylorMade Tour Professionals, the new design of the DDL+ features updated styling with a sleek matte black finish with premium accents including a new non-glare tour satin grey finish and contrasting alignment lines for enhanced alignment and confidence at address. The complex construction of the Daddy Long Legs+ features 17 individual pieces, meticulously engineered to create the highest-performing, most stable face-balanced putter in the TaylorMade lineup.
Another feature of the Daddy Long Legs+ putter is TaylorMade’s new deep-milled 6061 13-gram aluminium insert, inspired by Tour player feedback and engineered to deliver a crisp, clean feel off the putter face and a smooth, accurate roll. The rough surface of the insert also softens the sound at impact, delivering more auditory feedback preferred by better players.
“With Daddy Long Legs+, the stability and performance of our counterbalance putters have been taken to the next level,” said Clay Long, Senior Director of Product Creation, Putters. “We’ve taken one of our most popular putters of all time and added performance features to deliver a remarkably stable putting stroke, which golfers of all abilities can benefit from.”
