    mscall reacted to GolfSpy SAM in L.A.B. Putters - 2023 Forum Review   
    TESTERS ANNOUNCED!
    MyGolfSpy Forum had a near record amount of registrations for this test and it certainly was not easy to narrow it down to get to our 6 testers. 

    From L.A.B.
    All golfers have had those days when their putting stroke feels completely off. What they’re feeling is torque — the twisting of the putter head — and it’s the enemy of consistent putting.
    Lie Angle Balance (L.A.B.) is a patented technology we developed that simplifies putting. It eliminates torque from the design of a putter, giving all golfers the ability to consistently repeat their stroke — especially when the pressure is on.
    Whether you’re a great putter or a golfer who frets every 5-footer, our putters and grips will help you become a better putter. That means lower scores… and more bragging rights.
     
    Please welcome and congratulate our 6 testers who will partake in a long term L.A.B. Putter review!

    As a lefty Cobra has made this a really easy decision. I would have to go with the King Forged Tec X Irons in a regular steel shaft. This is the only lefty option. That being said, hypothetically if all the ranges were open to lefties I would go with the KING Forged Tec ONE Length Irons for several reasons.
    1. My current set of irons are the MP-20 SEL. The lofts of the King Forge Tec irons are close to the MP-20 SEL lofts so there would be less of an adjustment that needs to be made along with the ability to get a ball to sit close to where it lands since they are not loft jacked. 
    2. You can go up to a 4. I love my irons and if I could I would go all the way to a 2 iron.
    3.I feel like the 1025 carbon steel and hollow body design is filled with a lightweight foam give the Cobra Forged Irons the best chance of feeling butter soft on center hit shots along with some feedback and forgives on miss hits. Everyone knows Mizuno irons are at the top for feel when it comes to irons but with this new design I feel like Cobra has caught up and will be able to run with Mizuno for best feeling irons.
    4. I would go specifically with the ONE length irons for a few additional reasons. The swing weights are close to what I am currently playing again making an easy transition. The second is 100% personal in the fact that I have been following and copying Bryson to some degree with my clubs. I converted a putter into an arm lock. Shaved some strokes off my game. I got Bryson to respond on you tube to figure out his glove size and recommended jumbo max grip size i should go with. After having those on I have seen an improvement with consistency resulting in again lower scores. I have been on the fence for the longest time about one length and could just not justify paying for a full set of irons just to try them but at this point it is the only thing I haven't tried in Bryson's style and everything else has worked so far, so why not. The one length would also allow me to go to a KBS $ Taper Chrome X-Stiff shaft.
     
    Cobra and Bryson....some of use lefties can play with more then game improvement irons, throw us some love!

    Played this gem 2 weeks ago and it was the best course experience I've ever had. 
    The course:
    If you play the right tees you're gonna have a good time, it really is that simple.  The fairways are fairly wide; there is no such thing as rough (though some waste areas that are bunkers that are packed down).  The final 3 holes are classics and have some great views of the sound.  I agree with everyone who has said the greens are tiny.  I watch some of the Heritage every year and never got a good understanding of why the 18th green was so hard to hit....until now.  That green is just tiny!   Overall, I found the course to be very fair.
    Pro Shop/19th hole:
    Fantastic!  Make sure to go into the locker room.  They have lockers for all of the PGA pros in there so it's just fun to see where they all are.  I doubt anyone keeps anything in there but still a very cool locker room.   The pro shop is quite large and has a nice lookout over the 9th green and the range.   The  beers and food at the end were needed since I played with a heat index approaching 110. 
    Staff:
    Super polite and very helpful.  You are required to have a fore caddie.  This was my first experience ever having a caddie of any kind and I gotta admit, I don't ever want to play without one again.  I played ok and probably would not have lost a ball anyways but to have a guy who knew where you were, and to give tips on where to hit was so nice. Chatting about everything except golf at times made the round feel like I was playing with guys I had known for years (even though I played as  a single). 
    Overall:
    It is a pricey round of golf.  I paid $300+ tip to play but I did not feel like I over paid.  The drinks were reasonably priced.  Not inexpensive but fair for a high end course like this.  If you have the budget, I'd recommend playing this course.

    I usually play public courses as their are a good amount of them around me. That being said any chance I get to play a private course with a member, I always jump at the chance as they are some of the nicest courses in our area.

    mscall got a reaction from cnosil in What equipment are you thinking about?   
    I just bought Mizuno MP-20 SEL irons, SM8 wedges, Odyssey double wide stroke lab putter, and getting fitted for a driver, 2iron/driving iron, 3 wood, 5 or 7 wood, and a hybrid tomorrow. No idea what brands I will go with. Trying to go on the data and what gives me the tightest dispersion
