    L.A.B. Putters BLaD.1 Putters

    The company behind the Directed Force have a new design out.

    BLāD.1
    The design of BLāD.1 was inspired by one of golf’s most beloved putter designs, the bullseye-style putters that were first introduced more than 70 years ago. What makes BLāD.1 totally different is the addition of Lie Angle Balance (L.A.B.), the patented technology L.A.B. Golf developed to eliminate torque from the design of a putter.

    “Bringing Lie Angle Balance to BLāD.1 wasn’t easy, but we were fully committed to making it happen,” said Bill Press, L.A.B. Golf’s Founder and SVP of R&D. “In every sense, this was a passion project for us. We asked ourselves, ‘Can we really offer the feel and simplicity of a bullseye and include all the benefits of Lie Angle Balance?’ We weren’t going to stop until we figured it out.”

    BLāD.1 is available in both stainless steel and brass models. Each version of the putter is

    100 percent milled from a solid block of stainless steel and made in the USA.

    Craftsmen at the L.A.B. Golf factory build all BLāD.1 putters to order, precisely Lie Angle Balancing them by hand through the addition of four custom weight screws — two in the toe of the putter, and in the heel section of the putter.

    Customization
    Golfers can determine their optimal L.A.B. Golf putter specifications online through a free Remote Fitting, a process that identifies the ideal putter length, lie angle, shaft type, and grip type. Custom shaft options include the BST Stability Shaft, the LAGP OZIK TP, the FST Tour in Matte Black and Matte Silver.

    BLāD.1 is currently available at L.A.B. Golf Authorized Retailers and through the company’s website starting at $399. The company’s oversized, high-MOI mallet putter, DF 2.1, comes in a choice of Black, Red, and Blue and starts at $425.

    Its a brick on a stick but I like it. It is the polar opposite of my Odyssey mallet but I would give it a roll.

    Center shafted putters just look weird to me. The design description is certainly interesting but neither the blade nor the Adam Scott frying pan putters suit my eye.

    L.A.B. Putters BLaD.1 Putters

    I love center shafted putters, so they have my attention. With some of the highly technical milling going on now by other manufacturers, the shape of this thing is a stark contrast as a block, almost minimalistic in some regards. I would love to get a chance to roll one, just not sure it would be something I would grab right off the shelf compared to others in the market.

    And I know center shafted isn’t everyone’s cup ‘o tea, but there are many people who could benefit from it if given a try, especially if your strike is mostly straight back and forward with little arch.

    Definitely unique looking, but not something I would consider picking up. There are people that will love it and want to find a way to try it though.
