Ever wanted to be a part of the data MyGolfSpy collects over the course of the season? Welcome to Testers Wanted, where we recruit readers like you for objective feedback on products that roll into HQ throughout the year!

You can say a lot of things about L.A.B. Putters but you certainly can’t say they’re boring. Or conventional. Or even unoriginal. Even the owner calls them "absurd."

Leveraging an approach called "lie angle balancing" (hence L.A.B. Golf) the brand feels it has a technology to help you make more putts.

That said, we need testers like you to assess, and report back to us here at MyGolfSpy!

Important: Each tester will be required to submit a fitting video per L.A.B.'s fitting process and be prepared to provide as much detailed feedback as possible

I would almost think that between everyone in that thread, we could enact the entire movie in a thread dedicated to PB, but yeah I think we got the quotes covered.

Congrats boys on being selected. I am really looking forward to following your reviews, and with so many different opinions it should give a good idea of LAB's putters

Congrats! Bonus points for whoever has the best outcome from the ugliest putter. Ugly Duckling Award perhaps?

Very excited to see the results of this test!

In all honesty, the builds for everyone are what I'm most intrigued in. In DF 2.1 alone there are three heads, three grips, eight shafts and 36 lineup lines for a total of 2592 potential builds at base level, not including length and lie. B.2 has 160 different possibilities and Mezz.1 has 72.

In total, folks have the selection of over 2824 different builds, at standard length style putting, not counting potential armlock or broomstick builds as well.

Let's get weird...

Congratulations to the testers. As a bit of a scientist, the idea behind these putters intrigues me. Looking forward to everyone's thoughts.

That was my plan my plan going in @Berg Ryman! Hopefully it plays out the way I hope after the fitting process. If it’s left up to me, I’d like to go completely off the reservation here, and go with something that I’ve never done before.

My first choice would be the broomstick, then the armlock would be second. Either one of those in a 2.1 head would be a lot of fun to try.

I love niche ideas... especially when they work (ex - single length irons)

I would love to test these out.  I just had my first putter test this week and the instructor said this design would best fit my stroke.

Very unique product, wonder if this lie angle balance stuff really improves from conventional putters.

I've been on the fence to go all in on a LAB putter.  Help me get over the hump by selecting me to test,

Would LOVE to be a tester for this product!!  I'm betting this could be "THE ONE" for me!!

There's something fun and exciting about the L.A.B. putter, and I'd love to give one a try.  I'm looking forward to hearing from those selected, although I'd love to be the one sharing the information with others!

I have been wanting to try/bag one of these putters for a while now.  I tried out the crazy looking putter at a PGA superstore and was more impressed with it than anything else I've tried.  The expense of it was a big consideration.  If I hadn't just spent a good bit of money on irons recently, I probably would've highly considered buying it.  I've improved on putting the last year or so more than any other time in my golfing life, but I still struggle with inconsistency (good for a couple weeks, then bad for a month) and definitely wouldn't call it a strength.  Three-putts (and sometimes chipping) are my nemesis.  All that said, I would LOVE to try one of these!!!  I am optimistic about what it claims it can do.
My goal is to get my handicap down from a 9-10 to a 4-5, and I think putting can be the biggest/quickest key for me in that goal.

I am a tinkerer so a unique putter is right u my ally. They look awesome. I would definitely buy one.

Should be a really interesting test, looking forward to it! I'm too happy with my current putting to apply for this one though.....

Can I just ask for a fitter reasonably near me and a discount code? 🤣 I've been on the fence about trying LAB for a while, I've got 4 putters in the basement that all never seem to give me quite the right combo. Been fitted twice, and I actually notice/feel the putter "torquing" in my hands thru the stroke. Have two face balanced and two toe hang putters, I'm almost certain LAB would shave a bunch of strokes off my game 😎

Really excited about this testing series.   Cant wait to see what MGS users think about these putters.

I’ve been looking at some Evnroll putters and almost pulled the trigger. Watched the L.A.B. video that compares toe hang and balance. Will be interesting to see what comes back from the testers in regards to how the face squares up.

Always cool to see really unique designs and new ways companies try to achieve the perfect putter. Curious to see how these work out and what consumers think of them.

Would jump at the chance to try this putter. I have read numerous articles about how fantastic this brand is and I would love to find out for myself.

Would love to be a tester of the L.A.B. putter .... currently using a Cameron Phantom X 5.5

Please, please let me be part of this! I am looking for the best putter all the time 🙂

Always looking for something to get the ball started on line better. Would love to put this up against my gamer in the putting green at the house.

I'm going through a horrible case of the yips w/ my Scottie Cameron mallet. I'd love to try something with a new look and different feel to see if I can find my way back from the wilderness!

Never done a fitting for a putter. This could be an awesome opportunity to dial in putting. Good luck to all who sign up.

Just had one in my hands at a PGA SS.   Would love to test it.   Seemed very stable.

I think this putter could be a game changer! I'm available as a tester. Thanks, I play three times a week so can give it a thourough review.

I am getting fitted on line in the next couple days. I are very excited about this putter. I am looking at the DF 2.1

Link to comment

Since I am an atrocious putter, averaging at or over 36 putts, if the Directed Force can reduce my putts, it’ll work for anyone.

Very excited to see these results. Just watched the GolfWRX Club Junkie interview with their CEO. If I'm not selected to test, really having a hard time deciding between the DF 2.1 and the Mezz1. Leaning towards the DF 2.1 because it sounds like that's the closest to "auto-pilot" they make (just have to deal with appearance).
