This thread reminds me of the myth (or is it?) that we are never more than 3 feet from a spider.

One of the top 10 players in Colorado only putts with Spiders. I'm sure he approaches and drives with them as well.

I happen to have a Pro Line Spider if anyone out there wants it.

Wasnt there a big deal about the multipurpose stamp verbiage being removed like PFNs etc?

Screw that dark blue champ (might as well of been black) spider i spent hours of my life looking for. Finally left that SOB behind and found a real mid i was using as a putter.... The skeeter

Maybe if you're in the woods, or in a field. In summer.

My dad uses a Skeeter DX as a Driving Putter shot. Then the Skeeter as a short midrange/long approach for when he did not use his Rubber putter.

I know of a player an Uncle who still uses a Spider one DX Beat to fly more straight and a newer looking one as his approach disc.

My Brother uses a DX Gator beat to fly straight as his putter, a DX newer looking one for approach shots and a MF Gator for his driving putter spot and wood shots he would not use his newer looking DX Gator.

Some Faster putters still use a Beat DX Spider as their disc to use for putting, also a good approach disc as well, My uncle dose both.

A guy I know putts with DX Spiders, he's not to bad either.

I have never seen nor have thrown a Cro though!
That Guy would not happen to be John Eckstrom would it? He lives in western NY, Dunkirk.
