Testing of poles

Abstract
The residual strength of electricity poles is determined by the deflection of the poles under a pre-determined applied load. The load is applied by an extensible ram which has a foot secured to the base of the pole by a chain and a head plate with teeth which engages the sides of the poles. A preset hydraulic pressure is applied to the ram by a manual pump and the deflection if measured by strain gauges mounted on a support frame. The load deflection data are fed to a programmed computer which calculates the residual strength.

When this particular athlete feels the pressure of competition, she's a testy Pole using a pole to get over a pole.

By changing one letter at a time in each word without permuting letters, leaving two other common English words, how many changes are required to get from


TEST POLL


to

MATT MATT

I got it in five substitutions for each word. Can anyone do it in fewer? Three is the theoretical minimum for TEST->MATT; four for POLL->MATT. All words have to be in The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (Fourth Edition).

PhiPi wins for the most complicated perturbation yet.

Can I say "perturbation" on TV?



Fibonacci sequence, anyone?

Apparently, Phil is explanation-challenged. :) So here's an example, going from COG to HUB:


COG
HOG
HUG
HUB

(I was gonna use STAMP to PROPS for the example but couldn't find a route.)

Best I could come up with for POLL->MATT

The other appears harder.

Yup, MOLL is in there. You beat me by one and hit the theoretical minimum! I had:
