MLA PUTTERS

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So I've been playing with my new MLA XDream Pro for a couple of weeks. Early rounds were very good (surprisingly good with distance control), but last few rounds...not so much. 

 

Putting a Winngrip Dri-tac Jumbo grip on to see how that goes. Very similar to the SuperStroke GT Pistol 2.0 I have on my PING Nome and has colours that match the head. 

 

I seem to have some off-centre hits on longer putts that go a lot shorter, possibly because there is no mark for the centre of the putter which I think I've had on every other putter I've ever owned. So I'm thinking about putting a Sharpie dot on the centre of the putter near the front edge.. Thoughts? 

 

Seems like a reasonable idea.

 

I'm still waiting for EvnRoll to buy MLA, so that we can get MLA's aiming system and EvnRoll's distance-controlling face on a single putter. A guy can dream, right?

Ive been using my MLA for a couple of years now, and find if I let the alignment tech just happen subconsciously it works amazingly well. That said, I can't see any problem with putting a mark on the putter head.

Hopefully you can get the most out of your putter, they're a really well made piece of equipment.

This is the one thing I wanted the Tour XDream to have. Thought about sending it in to have a dot professionally drilled in, or whatever the process is.

Practiced with it a bit yesterday and started using the black "bar" that goes from the face to the back of the mallet to indicate the centre of the face. Worked well when I did that but when the ball is in the middle it looks like the hosel is going to hit the ball. It doesn't of course. Just have to get used to it.

I like that idea. If I like the dot I will give it a go and post the results (I have a drill press).

I've gotta think a small paint dot would accomplish the same thing while being less invasive. You could use some black enamel paint so it's barely noticeable but still raised and you'll have the option to pluck it off if you ever change your mind.

 

I use the crap out of the tiny dot on my Tour Classic and only view the white wing with my peripheral vision. The fact that it's also black forces me to focus even harder. Started using a tip from the Evnroll thread about putting that dot slightly off-center on the ball depending on which direction the putt will break. Has helped me keep the misses on the high side if not made.

So I went ahead with drilling the midpoint of the putterhead with a mark to center the ball on. Like it a lot more than the Sharpie dot. 

 

I like it subtle so I probably won't fill it in with black paint. But who knows!

I have a comment and 2 questions.

 

First this is an ingenious idea and the drill point looks very cool! 

 

Is it just my bad eyesight or is the dot right of center?

If the MLA aiming technology is designed to give your brain multiple aiming points to process information, does the single focal point now negate their aiming system? In theory, your brain will now focus on one single point giving it less information to make a square to target decision.

Check this out I think MLA read this thread. Note the drill mark in the center of the club in their latest ad.

Not to be "that guy" but the indented dot has been a standard feature on all Tour models since the beginning.

You got me.

 

I should've done more research before making a blanket statement. Maybe they added it for the black series and kept it for F/T?

My original Tour Classic doesn't have it either, nor does my Pro X-Dream.

I wish they did though.

Maybe this is a customer's customized putter and not a stock one then.

Not sure if this is "OK" to post here but I'm selling an MLA Pro Series XDream in the classifieds.

Love the MLA tech but face balanced just isn't for me.
