B.2

ALL THE FEELS. NONE OF THE TORQUE.

B.2

ALL THE FEELS. NONE OF THE TORQUE.

B.2 VS. DF 2.1

Our B.2 (blade) and DF 2.1 (mallet) both have Lie Angle Balance. Both swing perfectly in The Revealer. Both make putting a lot easier. And both can be perfectly fit to your stroke.  

With B.2, we set out to make the simplest and cleanest putter we could with all the benefits of Lie Angle Balance. The downside? B.2 is not as forgiving as the DF 2.1 on off-center hits. It also won’t grant you eternal consciousness. 

But if you’re a purist or a golfer who rarely misses the center, you likely won’t care. B.2 might be the one you’ll want.

STAINLESS VS. BRASS

It’s not just a difference of color. These putters are made from two different materials. B.2 Stainless is made of premium stainless steel. B.2 Brass is made of Brass (the finest brass bar stock we might add).

Both putters are 100% milled. The reason you’d lean one way or the other aside from looks is that B.2 in Brass feels a little softer because brass is a little softer than stainless.

Please Note: B.2 Brass is only available with B.2 Custom builds.

LIE ANGLE BALANCE IN A BLADE?

It wasn’t easy to do and there’s a lot going on inside the B.2 that allows it to happen. See those custom weight ports? There are four of them (two on each side of the face), and they’re part of the highly engineered internal design that allows the B.2 to be much more than meets the eye. 

When our craftsmen build a B.2, they have to be incredibly precise. Just like DF 2.1, B.2 is built by hand, one at a time. Everything has to be perfect for these putters to balance. It has taken as long as 50 minutes to get a B.2 just right.

THE BENEFITS OF LIE ANGLE BALANCE

If you need a refresher, we dive deep about Lie Angle Balance on our Technology Page, but the short story is that your putter has been working against you your entire golfing life. And that’s because of torque.

TORQUE F*CK!#% SUCKS

All other putters have torque, and you’ve felt it before — even if you don’t know exactly what it means. One day putting feels easy, and the next it’s really challenging, right? It has to do with timing. If your timing isn’t the same on every putt — and it rarely is — torque is going to make putting harder than it needs to be.

THE LEARNING CURVE

For most golfers, there is no learning curve with a Lie Angle Balance putter. They start making more putts than they ever have in a few minutes. Some golfers do need to make minor adjustments, however, such as moving their ball position slightly forward or weakening their top hand.

Don’t worry… you won’t need to learn a new “putting system” with a L.A.B. Golf putter. The putting tips you’ve always tried to integrate like neutralizing your grip, softening your grip pressure, and smoothing out your stroke will all of the sudden become easier in the absence of torque. Again, these adjustments are minor and our team is happy to walk you through them.

UNCONCIOUS VARIABLES

Conscious manipulations are OK. Just ask Jim Furyk’s accountant. The problem is when your compensations and manipulations are unconscious. This is one of the reasons golfers tend to make fewer putts when some element of pressure is introduced. Weird things can happen. Your putter face jolting opened or closed shouldn’t be one of them.

L.A.B. GOLF ON TOUR

As we write this, there are several players on the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour who are using or testing L.A.B. Golf putters. They became world-class players with a different putter, which makes any equipment change a big deal to them.

But we often wonder how much more successful many Tour players could be with a Lie Angle Balance putter. The finish at the 2016 U.S. Open comes to mind. Help us spread the word by tweeting at your favorite Tour player or anyone else you think needs to know about L.A.B. Golf.

OK. LET’S BUILD IT.

FITTING IS CRITICAL

B.2 is not always an off-the-rack magic worker. If the putter sole lays flush to the ground at address and the length feels comfortable, you’re in business. Go ahead and buy it. If not, we want you to go through a fitting, which is fast and easy to do. And there are two ways to do it. 

Fitting Option 1: Fast-And-Easy (And Effective!)

We developed what we call a “Remote Fitting” to make sure we’re making a putter that’s perfect for you. And you can do a Remote Fitting from just about anywhere. 

So go ahead and start building your putter here, and when you get to the step about Lie Angle just select “I Don’t Know It.” After you complete your purchase, we’ll send you a video with instructions on how to make a 5-6 second smartphone video that will allow us to nail in your length and lie angle. 

If you prefer to get your specs before purchase, you can watch the Remote Fitting instructional video here and submit your Remote Fitting video to [email protected]

Fitting Option 2: IRL

You can go through an in-person fitting at a L.A.B. Golf Fitting location. Find your nearest location here.

WANT IT STOCK?

If you’re anti-fitting for whatever reason, we do offer a B.2 Stock option of our most popular build configurations. Same putter. Same everything. Just a little lower price because they’re more straightforward to build.

We sell more 34-inch, 70-degree B.2 putters than anything else. This spec almost always works for golfers who play clubs that are fairly standard.

All B.2 Stock putters come with a Lamkin Deep-Etched grip and our Two Lines Alignment Marking.
