TaylorMade unveils a new premium collection of TP Hydro Blast putters with seven traditionally shaped models for golf purists.

We’re big fans of the TaylorMade TP Collection putters here at TG and they’ve found their way into many Tour player bags over the past few years. Now the collection has received an aesthetic upgrade for 2021 with the classic designs combined with a new finish.

First appearing in TaylorMade’s Spider X, the TP Collection’s new Hydro Blast finish delivers a rich, premium and cohesive look. This durable yet attractive surface is achieved by applying a high pressure water jet over soft but tough 303 stainless steel, which provides a superior feel and craftsmanship aesthetic.

From the smooth, flowing curves of Soto and Chaska to the crisp geometric lines of Bandon, the TP Hydro Blast collection offers a variety of fully milled putters to suit the wide range of golfers and putts.

Each model is fitted with the same White Pure Roll insert that has helped Spider X achieve over a dozen Tour victories since 2019. It features grooves at a 45 ° downward angle, designed to optimize the characteristics of roll by producing improved topspin to help the ball start rolling from end to end sooner.

The putters in the TP Hydro Blast collection are named after iconic golf regions and destinations around the world. Other differentiating factors include hosel types, sightlines, and hanging toes.

“We’ve relied on precision milling and the new Hydro Blast finish to give this premium family of putters a handcrafted look,” said Bill Price, TaylorMade Product Creation, Putter and Wedge.

“With a clean aesthetic, dedicated shaping and superior feel, we’ve blended the modern with the traditional to create a new class of classic.”

All TP Hydro Blast putters come with a TaylorMade stepped putter shaft and Lamkin Sink Fit Skinny pistol grip in Navy and White. They also feature unique movable sole weights at each stock length (33 “, 34” and 35 “). Weights of 2.5g, 5g, 7.5g, 10g, 15g and 20g are available for purchase separately.

Everything you need to know about the TaylorMade TP Hydro Blast putter collection

TaylorMade Soto TP Hydro Blast Putter

RRP £ 199

The Soto is a classically shaped blade that features flowing, rounded edges and the original model has moved in and out of Rory McIlroy’s bag over the years (see Rory’s WITB here).

A clean construction with a single line of sight to the rear cavity, this age-old shape is meant to inspire confidence and produce an exceptional putt-after-putt feel.

Equipped with an L-neck hosel, the traditional shape of the blade produces 40 ° of toe suspension, resulting in a putter that is best suited to players who create maximum face rotation throughout the putting motion.

TaylorMade Del Monte TP Hydro Blast Putter

RRP £ 199

With a shorter blade length and a wider front-to-back area, the Del Monte Hyrdro Blast putter has a more squat profile which results in a more mallet-like feel while retaining the characteristics of a blade.

It comes in two models, Del Monte 1 with an L-neck and Del Monte 7 with a single curvature hosel. With 29 ° of toe suspension, the L-Neck best adapts to players who create moderate facial rotation throughout the swing. The Single Bend hosel provides a more balanced result on the face (only 8 ° of toe suspension) that aligns better with golfers who have a straight back and straight putting motion.

The is only available in a right-handed model.

TaylorMade Bandon TP Hydro Blast Putter

RRP £ 199

This Tour-inspired double-wing design helps frame the ball at address and encourages forgiveness through optimized perimeter weighting. With crisp geometric lines that reflect the technical precision of this classically crafted mallet, the Bandon was the first TP Hydro Blast model to appear on the Tour.

Tommy Fleetwood first bagged the L-neck version at RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, SC, after spending hours with the team at TaylorMade’s Tour and testing many setups (see Tommy’s WITB here ).

Fleetwood has a long history of using bladed putters, and because this model features a 22 ° toe hook, it has made the transition to a seamless mallet style head.

“For Tommy, the strike centering was a big reason for his time at Bandon,” said Adrian Rietveld, senior representative of the TaylorMade Tour.

“The lack of the heel side is something he fought with his blade, and we’ve helped him develop a little more consistency with it. Beyond that, he’s very comfortable with the shape of the putter and has said it helps him line up.

The Bandon 3 is the second iteration of this model. It features a short angled hosel with increased toe hooking (32 °) for even more blade-like performance in a mallet design.
