    Since the Press grips have the shaft at an angle, the lefthanded version would have to be different so that the shaft lean was correct. I really enjoy mine.
    Mine's a little longer (36") and more upright (68*), but I have the BGT Stability Tour shaft as well. I also choke down on mine a little and almost play it like a little bit of a wrist lock grip.
    I sure hope this becomes a picture-heavy thread. Going to be so many unique putters to look at.

    I got the Press II 3* grip in LEFTHAND. (I have no idea why they differentiate?)
    Im’m at 34” and 65* are you anywhere near those #’s?

    I forgot to mention what a great help @Golfspy_CG2has been throughout the week. He’s been terrific with answering all our questions, and seems to be available whenever we need him.
    I’m obviously grateful to MGS and LAB, but Tony has been our go to guy, and we’re lucky to have him.

    I can’t begin to explain to everyone what a fun experience this has already been.
    We all sent in our online videos earlier in the week, and this afternoon everything started happening really fast, lol. We all got our recommendations and opened accounts on the LAB site, and placed our orders.
    I went with the big boy, the 2.1 with a BGT Stability shaft. My recommended specs were 34” and 65*. We get to pick from a menu of exotic shafts and grips, and have about 30 sight line options to choose from. It’s mind boggling building one of these on the site exactly how you want it.
    It’s actually was a bit too overwhelming, as I’m waiting to hear back from my fitter about the grip I chose. I want something mid size, akin to a super stroke 2.0 or Matador in size, and want to make sure I ordered the right one. I’m also thinking of switching to a LA shaft. (too many choices…🙄)
    One last thing I want to share about how cool a company LAB seems to be. I got a call yesterday from their CS telling me the reason I hadn’t heard anything about my video yet was because their CEO wanted to do my fitting himself! Well, it turned out that didn’t happen, as he was able to get to any fittings today, but how cool would that have been?
    Stay tuned guys, this is going to be a blast!

    Got my order placed this morning.  DF2.1, Black, 65* Lie Angle, 34.25", #28 alignment marker (long line from front to back), LA Golf 135 shaft, Press II 3.0 Grip!  I'm excited!  I will say that I have been loving/hating my Odyssey Ten S lately.  It made some huge puts for me in my Player Ability Test, so the L.A.B. will have some competition and will not just be a guaranteed winner!

    I also asked for a 35.25" length, as that's what I've got currently and it feels just about perfect. 
    Same here - the Press 2 was the recommended grip for the DF2.1. I am NOT typically a forward-press putter, so this set-up will for sure take some getting used to, but I feel like that's sort of the point - different look, different set-up, (hopefully) different results.

    Not surprised to see L.A.B. is going over the top for you guys. I had some custom requests on my DF 2.1 and they had no trouble accomadating them. 
    @Grand Stranded sounds like we're going to have very similar setups. May have missed this, but is anyone going with the Press II grip? As much as I love the L.A.B. itself, I think the grip made the biggest difference in my putting stroke.

    I FOR SURE had this exact thought - some people looking to order may not be able to afford the shaft upgrade options.  As I really prefer a softer-feeling putter, this is one that I would absolutely spring for (the Accra, to be clear) over the standard steel shaft - acknowledging that this will obviously impact that "standard" set-up.  
    I will say that I was THIS close to buying one of the putters from the outlet (refurbs, factory-seconds, etc.) before getting chosen for this (thanks again for that, btw) - and I still think that would be a fascinating test - maybe after I get another bonus or something I'll look into that to see what a standard set-up feels/acts like.  My understanding from the website info re: the shaft options is that the LA Golf shaft is VERY resistant to torquing (even more so than the putter by itself), but that the other two (Accra/BGT) are only a little less-resistant to torque, so I feel like it's not a crazy thing to test with the Accra as that would have been my preference if I were ordering as "just me". Meh. I don't know - I hear what you're saying, and I do think it'd be a good test, but my hunch is that the tech of the head is going to be very obvious, whereas if I put the Accra shaft in my Tommy Armour milled Serrano, I wouldn't see nearly the (potential) benefit.
