    MLA Golf Tour Series Putters

    An interesting take on alignment from MLA Golf
    https://www.mla.golf/collections/tour-series


    MLA (Multiple Line-detector Activation) is the new patented alignment technology that will revolutionize your putting. This is how it works…

    We all have internal guides to compare and analyze sensory information that control pace and direction of putts. The MLA putters are designed to take advantage of these guides. MLA Putters worked with Dr. Lennart Högman, Ph.D. Dr. Högman has studied the perceptual process for more than 20 years and has performed studies that have revised the science between the human’s perceptions and the human being’s motor skills.
    He says: “An alignment system that acts upon multiple line detectors is a key to obtain veridical motion perception and a perfect in-line stroke surface.”
    The brain consists of 100,000 line detectors that are divided into a number of groups that help us decide what is straight. A simple line, for example, activates a group of detectors. When several groups of detectors are activated, these help the brain to make correct judgments.
    However, the more line detectors that are stimulated will not automatically lead to a better line judgment. On the contrary, this can create a “competition” between the line detectors that will lead to different degrees of (so called) optical illusions, as shown in the illustrations below (front and perspective views).
    MLA is developed to activate the maximum number of coordinated detectors
    for optimal aiming judgment.

    Here are some in hand pics of the tour mallet:


    It has a P2 Tour MLA grip on it, I like the flat edges, I'll be curious to see how it feels after 18 holes as it almost has a bit of unnatural angle to it. Just the way it make my left forearm feel, https://www.thehackersparadise.com/f...2-Putter-Grips

    The weight kit is a nice touch, nice sturdy metal case with 2 of each 5, 10 and 15. Ended up installing the 10s. And being able to swap weights it's always a nice customization/personalization touch.


    The alignment is an interesting one, I haven't dialed it in quite yet, actually find myself using the face line more for square, but we'll see what it's like out on the course.

    Nice magnetic headcover, fits great and feel fairly high quality. We'll see how durable it is long term.

    The first carpet putting set went well, was putting straighter than I expected to coming from my CS Seemore. Felt a bit hard, not necessarily harsh, but sounded/felt a bit hard/firm than I'd be looking for.

    Yep, I actually think their alignment aid is more effective than a lot of them out there, but aesthetically they're too on the industrial side for me.

    May not win any beauty contests, but it’ll
    Be a fun review nonetheless. As I mentioned earlier in here, the alignment works, it’s just a bit abstract overall in aesthetics.

    The technology is interesting, but looking at those pictures, all I think is “Oreo.”

    I think the top line looks pretty cool but the green is a little much. But hey, you don't see it when you look down to putt so it's not a big deal.

    I have a tour mallet, I like it.

    I feel that I'm making better contact and feel more in control. My overall confidence has gone up. Don't think I could do those P2 grips though. Topped mine off with a SuperStroke counter core grip instead.

    This is a new brand to me so I’m interested in your thoughts. Your putter knowledge is second to none (or at least few)!
