Looks are important, but so is science. That’s why MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX looks pretty much like normal putters. But unlike normal putters, they actually helps you hole more putts.
Like all L.A.B. Golf putters, MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX are 100% Lie Angle Balanced to make putting easier and more fun. They feel like magic… but it’s just science.
MEZZ.1 is also plenty forgiving (and MEZZ.1 MAX is even more forgiving) and they might just be our best-feeling putters.
MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX are pretty much the same putter… except MEZZ.1 MAX is 20% larger.
MEZZ.1 MAX offers outrageous stability. It was created for golfers that prefer larger putters or are seeking the most forgiveness possible.
MEZZ.1 MAX is almost as forgiving as our DF 2.1 (except it’s not ugly) to give golfers everything they love about DF 2.1 without the spaceship vibe.
MEZZ.1 MAX is available Standard-Length, ArmLock, and Broomstick builds.
The most important thing about a L.A.B. Golf putter is that it feels comfortable in your hands. Choosing the right one can be simple as trying a few different L.A.B. Golf lengths and lie angles at a golf store and going with the one that feels best.
We offer Lie Angles from 63 to 79.5 degrees. All are programmed to stay square to your putting arc all by themselves. You won’t have to hold the face square like you have to do with every other putter. You can let it stay square.
You’ll be amazed at how many more putts you’ll start on line.
With MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX, you’ll feel contact more than you will with DF 2.1. This is great for golfers that want a little more feedback about how their putter is moving and can help with controlling pace on ultra-slick putts.
Our original Lie Angle Balanced putter, DF 2.1, is quite large and has a high-MOI. That combination makes it feel like it’s gliding on rails. Some golfers want this fully-automatic experience, while others prefer to have a little more control and that’s what MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX deliver.
P.S. For maximum feedback, check out B.2. It’s not as forgiving as MEZZ.1, MEZZ.1 MAX, or DF 2.1 on off-center hits, but if you’re going to play a blade like B.2 you probably don’t miss the sweet spot much.
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.
MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX use our most advanced construction to date. The midsection of the putter is fully CNC machined from 303 stainless to improve feel. The body of the MEZZ.1 is fully CNC milled from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum to improve forgiveness.
So you’ll get the feedback of steel but you won’t suffer the penalty when it comes to forgiveness on off-center hits because it’s wrapped in an aluminum chassis.
You’ll also notice that we’re using a ton of weights to allow us to optimize balance and head weights for all different lie angles and lengths.
Every MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX is hand-balanced and tested by our craftsmen at our headquarters in Eugene, Oregon.
MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX is our most flexible putter when it comes to choosing a putter grip. Most golfers are going to prefer our Press II 1.5 putter grip with MEZZ.1 and MEZZ.1 MAX, which is our smallest and most traditional putter grip style. It’s going to make the putter feel the most like a normal putter.
If you like big putter grips or have a forward press, we recommend one of our 3-degree Press Grips. Here’s a cheat sheet on how to choose:
MEZZ.1 Custom and MEZZ.1 MAX Custom are now available in three head weights: Standard, Heavy, and Light. Our standard weight is our most preferred, but if you’re someone who prefers a heavier or lighter putter we can build it that way.
Please understand that normal head weights and swing weights don’t necessarily apply to L.A.B. Golf putters because of Lie Angle Balance and the absence of torque. Our putters are a different beast.
We’ve put in a lot of work to perfect our head weight options, and we make special weight accommodations for each putter based on the length, lie, shaft and grip selected.
How to Choose Your Head Weight
If the weight of your putter hasn’t been a problem for you in the past, choose our standard weight. We also recommend standard weight for people who are on the fence or not sure.
If you putt better with heavier or lighter putters, trust that instinct. Your putter is going to stay square by itself, which makes weight less important for most folks since they don’t need to hold the face square.
This also doesn’t have to be a forever decision. If you change your mind down the road about what weight you want, you can send your putter back to us to be re-weighted for $100.
Remember… L.A.B. Golf is proud to make the most totally customizable putters on the planet. We got this!
Like most golfers, we like switching putters. It’s fun to get inspired by a new shape and sound. What we hate is having to adjust our stroke to a new putter. But L.A.B. Golf putters don’t have that issue.
Because all L.A.B. Golf putters are all Lie Angle Balanced, you won’t need to change your stroke when you switch to another L.A.B. Golf putter. Whether you’re using a DF 2.1, MEZZ.1, MEZZ.1 MAX, or a B.2, the torque profile will always be the same: ZERO.
With other putters, making this kind of change is going to cause some problems because you’re going to have to adjust to a different torque profile. There’s a reason it’s hard to putt with a blade after putting with a mallet, and vice versa. This is true when you switch from a blade to another blade, or from a mallet to another mallet, too. Because the torque changes, your stroke has to change.
So there you have it. We’re giving you permission to switch putters as often as you want as long as you’re switching between L.A.B. Golf putters.
The standard shaft offering for MEZZ.1 is premium steel. We’ve worked hard on the tipping of these shafts to give them the perfect stiffness and feel.
If you want to upgrade your putter shaft, we offer multiple options and colors from ACCRA, BGT, and LAGP.
