I have got to give this idea some credit.  After some discussion with LowPost I took a closer look at it and found out that my current iron set is very close to a TLT one.  That is good cause I love it.  Maybe a fine tuning of the lie is required, but nevertheless I hit nice shots with it.
 
But, I have been strugling with putter pulling for the last 2 years.  I thought maybe it was due to my blade style putter and that I needed a new one.  I did shorten it last year, but the problems were still there.  Terribel to pull a put especially at 3 feet and break left...  missed a lot of pars there...
 
But I looked at the True Length data for me and found my putter to be 1.5" too long.  I have now a putter at almost 33" after cutting it down.
 
I am putting straight.  No pulling, no pushing.  Had to re-learn the dirstance feel, but the short ones goes in the cup !
 
TLT is sensible !  Thanks LowPost.

Uh, you're welcome?

Like I say, I bought in because the idea already made sense to me - so when I learned of build charts and the 'math was already done', it was a logical step to look into it and build.  I'll never build another set that's not TLT...

I'll take credit for 'increasing your awareness', but you still had to be willing to try it.

More reports as I try out TLT on my iron set.

If you compare the standard lie of a long iron to the TLT lie there could be for an average guy like me, 2-4 degrees flatter lie.  That is much. 
 
I am in the process of trying this concept in a long iron, an 8i and in a LW.  The 8i is one of my favorites and the lie is at the TLT-lie.
 
I am quite sure that 2-4 degrees will not be found in a lie-board session.  The reason for this ?  We setup the body to facilitate the clubhead.  If it is upright, maybe one does like me, more erect spine, less flex in knees and extending the arms...
I have changed my 2-iron 3,5 degrees flatter.  And it feels super.  I can get more down into my stance and I can hear the swing speed has increased and the balance is much better.  I can put the leg action more into the swing and not pull left...
 
I will be hitting som balls in the weekend I hope and come back with a report.  If the ball goes as well as the swing with the club feels, its TLT for the whole set !
 
There could be that good players prefer small adjustments in their setup with different clubs, then TLT is to be slightly altered for them, but in essence, TLT is more and more sensible to me, just like MOI..
