I saw it in stats few times. I couldn't figure out because it's not a common milestone? Just curious :)

Sounds like it might be mid-thigh length. I guess that's the same as fingertip, depending on the person.

Oh true! I knew ''FTL'' I thought this would be something else. Thanks for the clarification.

Is there a post that defines these terms? I get confused, too.

Yes there is, check the newbie section of the forum for the stickies there! :flower:

From what I gather from others who've used them both as milestones, MTL tends to be a little longer than FTL. On me it's roughly a couple of inches. Unless used as actual goals in themselves they're often both a way to break up the ridiculously long distance between classic and knee :wink:

To me, MTL means mid-thigh length on me too, and yes it does depend on the person.

Depending on proportions, mid thigh and finger tip can be vastly different markers. Some people have longer arms and some have shorter, also being bigger will make fingertip length shorter since the arms will not rest as straight.
