The graphite composite/multi-material putter shaft is far from ubiquitous. However, things are changing.
 
Callaway nearly made it mainstream with Stroke Lab. Bryson has 14 graphite shafts in the bag, including an LA Golf Partners putter shaft.
 
The most recent addition to the growing cadre of steel alternative putter shafts is the second generation of MC Putter shaft from Fujikura.
 
While it may not come with a side of fries or a plastic toy, the MC Putter is yet another option that suggests that maybe, just maybe, the future of shafts is graphite.
 
But, because it's tough to evaluate a putter shaft without, well, the putter, we have a little bonus. Each selected tester will receive a Fujikura MC putter shaft and Evnroll V-Series putter head.

Lets get this off with a bang!

For purposes of this review I will be adding important dates (just below) of each add to this review! 

8/8/2021 Intro:

Just a little history on me:

  • Mark Lacasse and I am from Massachusetts.
  • 32 years old with a wife and 2 children.
  • I get out as much as I can, with younger kids I get a decent amount of rounds in every year depending on how far the season goes into the fall (If we go to November I am very happy), since I am in New England you just don't know. But typically anywhere from 25-40 rounds a year.
  • Love the outdoors give me a fire, drink and someone to sit and chit chat with I am good to go!
  • I am a Facilities Manager for a large portfolio in the Northeast from hard services (HVAC, electrical etc.) to soft services (landscaping, janitorial etc.) I have always been involved in facilities for my professional career in the Navy was an "Engineman" where I worked on HVAC equipment and when I got out was an HVAC tech as well.
  • The Family:

Me and Golf:

  • Started playing golf later in life. Played as a kid but baseball was my passion and maybe played a couple rounds in the summer from 12-20.
  • Once I got out of the military (Navy) baseball was not in the cards anymore and started playing ALOT more. I was never fitted and was consistently in the mid-high 90s or low 100s for several years.
  • Over the past 5 years I have really become competitive and striving to get better. Lowered my handicap to a current 6.9 (will be dropping with the most recent 2 rounds I played). I was fitted 2 years ago and have been focusing on swing adjustments which have shown very good play this year as a whole, just a few tweaks I think need to be made.
  • Arccos has been a very big eye opener for me. Driving and putting are the best parts of my game (putting was a big surprise to me) driving have had several penalties this year which has brought me down a bit. Wedge play as of late has been a huge positive for me (SG was closer to -10 beginning of the season), while approach play is a massive struggle, know what I need to do....just need to do it.....(tempo)
  • I am not a gear tinkerer, I like to stick with a setup but MGS has opened my eyes to so many aspects of golf I didn't look at in years past. I by no means stick to 1 thing during  around, if something isn't working I am adjusting and will figure it out after the round. Put a few sticks in my hand I am going off feel for the day and I will score.
  • Current look at my strokes gained to a 0 HDCP (Past 10 rounds vs Past 5 rounds):

image.png.9f04ea1a48bd26c3a1ce8b4db89e5fe1.pngimage.png.c56af57329d026821cd70329d4c47735.png

  • Putting has always been pretty good but Arccos is a huge eye opener.
  • My current gamer is an ODYSSEY O-WORKS 1W. I prefer the wide blade and that's what I went with for this test (ER2V with Firm shaft) WITB:
    • Big stick-COBRA RadSpeed 8*
    • 3W-Taylormade SIM
    • Hybrid-COBRA SpeedZone (4H)
    • Irons-Taylormade P790's
    • Wedges-SM7/8
    • Putter-Odyssey O-Works 1W

Since this will be a putter test a couple big things for me (Goals):

  • I want to have a little more consistency. My biggest struggle is the 6-15' range. My current gamer is hot off the face and I typically blow those by and give myself a tough come backer (Past 5 rounds not so much though, pretty sure the putter knows its on the hot seat). My goal is to make a few more of those though.
  • Pretty good under 6' and rarely 2 putt from there (I intentionally toe the ball with my current gamer) so this will be something I want to make sure continues.
  • Lag putting is good and I think this might be the biggest struggle transition wise but we will see. I hope that I can maintain my consistency from 15'+, I probably have gotten efficient with lag because of my poor approach play, so I suppose I could reduce my distance that way!
  • I have been looking at swapping my putter for over a year, not that I am not comfortable with mine but I am strictly going for a different feel now (see my game above), I am hoping this setup provides that more responsive feel and less of that soft feeling with my current setup.
  • My stats aren't super accurate pre-selection as I was not great about placing pins on Arccos but the last 3 have been accurate so we will look at that:

image.png.5db7a172622f6e85e878b7db6d5facf2.png

  • I am usually good for a 3 putt or 2 per round so the past few is an anomaly! 
  • I will be updating as I continue to play rounds prior to receiving equipment so look out for those 3+!

Closing:

I am looking forward to this test, I hope the shaft provides stabillty all around the green from long to short putts. My goal is to consistently be sub 30 putts and reduce my 2 putts from 6'-15'!

If you're interested in seeing my previous reviews they are in my signature!. Thank you MGS, @Fujikura Golfand EVNROLL for this opportunity! Can also add me on Instagram as I will be updating on there as the testing goes @lacassemark.

8/18/2021 Package Received/Initial Thoughts:

Package has been received folks! I had not received any tracking details UNTIL the package was delivered, and even then I received a text message from my wife letting me know it was there before FedEx sent their alert. Needless to say I bailed from work! First I will go over unboxing with some pictures and then get into my first thoughts on this equipment!

From Ordered to Package on Porch:

  • So I was pretty surprised the quick turn around on this setup. From time of selection to test on 7/17 to ordering around 7/20 we are looking at less than 4 weeks which EVNROLL is saying lead time is even longer than that on the site. Never mind the shaft is somewhat difficult to find outside of eBay (have done some looking into what their lead times were and all the dealers didn't even have at this time).
  • My specific order is as follows:
    • ER2V 
    • 34" (-1" compared to my current gamer)
    • Standard lie/loft
    • Long plumber neck
    • Shaft 115 Firm
    • EVNROLL Gravity Grip
  • Package was in good shape when received and my daughter was more than ecstatic to open it up for me (she proceeded to color the box, not pictured)

  • Nothing special about the packaging, there was no bubble wrap or anything like that which was surprising because it was not a snug fit in the box but was a very sturdy plastic (nothing against packaging as their was no damage just noting what I am seeing)

IMG_7380.JPG.25beb9483a327323fef3b71022415265.JPGIMG_7381.JPG.2087fd2a77656fd29181085055c98ed0.JPG

  • Going through material everything was clean, no marks on the shaft, grip or head. The shaft into the plumbers neck was very clean and their was no glue or debris. Same with the grip. The build is very clean!

Model Shoot:

  • The entire setup is gorgeous. Such a clean looking setup. Fujikura on aesthetics alone do a beautiful job. I think I am going to call this setup "the little black dress"
  • Shaft:
    • I am happy that the shaft description is setup on the back of the shaft at address, small thing but very happy to see that as I do not like verbiage from the top down view.

  • Gamer VS. Potential Replacement:

First 24 hour thoughts:

  • So overall the transition to this putter ascetically should not be difficult. Very similar setup and toe hang. The plumbers neck is more appeasing to my eye which I am happy with.
  • Overall weight feels heavier (will get official weights in time) and feels much smoother.
  • I am excited to get into the overall feel of this shaft. The material it is built with claims to have better balance as well as better feel. Initial stroke test feels extremely smooth and cannot wait to get some balls rolling.
  •  Also looking at the "firm shaft" really looking forward to the feel claims. Looking to get at a minimum to a green this weekend even if I do not play so keep an eye out on the comments section!Technology.PNG.81279ee071d4297f9d67bb271fd3df3b.PNG1735063312_FirmDescription.PNG.3ddcd7d0022192955577dbf61ed6bcbb.PNG

Well, nothing else left to it, but to do it!  So let's get this going! 

8/12/2021

Day 1 

Introduction

  • Eric Seay and I reside in the great football town of Knoxville, Tennessee.  (great football town, not great football anymore)
  • 34 years old with two kids, 4 years old and 8 months and i've been married for 8 years.
  • For the most part my golf opportunities have become corporate outings/charity tournaments and about once a month on the weekend
  • I lead Business Development for a large construction company so in the summer/fall, there tends to be a lot of company outings, so I play my fair share of golf and even sneak out on a few Friday's to go to the range.  
  • My wife will tell you have too many hobbies so spreading my time around appropriately to which sport can sometimes be hard!  Between playing basketball, softball, golf, and even a kickball league this year, sometimes golf gets put on the back burner lately.  

fam.jpg.149e8a4e0a8c426d80254b70dd52ccd2.jpg

This game called golf

  • You know the scene in the movie My Cousin Vinny where Marisa Tomei is explaining why she knows about cars?  "My father was a mechanic, his father was a mechanic, my brothers are all mechanics...", You get the idea.  Well, that is my family and golf.  My grandfather was a pro, my uncle won everything there was to win at a local level, my grandfather's brother was a pro...but me, my first love was baseball.
  • Then in 7th grade my baseball coach started coaching the golf team for the middle school and asked if I wanted to play.  To that point, I had not ever played.  Really enjoyed playing in 7th grade but was AWFUL.  Played on a points system - 3pts for par, 2pts for bogey, etc.  I would have around 6-8 points per 9 holes.  After 7th grade my grandfather asked if I planned to keep playing which I did.  He told me in these exact words, "If your last name is Seay and you want to keep playing, you can't play like that" so the plan was put in motion.  That summer, he took me to his course 3 days a week and sent me to the range and out on the course and the other two days I played with him and his buddies.  In 8th grade, i was around 22 points per 9 nine, became the 1 player in high school and played college golf at University of the Cumberlands.  
  • Fast forward to now - The game has gotten a little lost, mostly because of my driver.  MGS has been generous enough to select me for multiple driver testing opportunities which has only confirmed it's not the  clubs fault.  There isn't a golf course wide enough to keep me in play when i'm going poorly which has me playing to around an 8 these days.  If you forced me to play a stroke play tournament today I would hit 4 iron off every tee and would feel confident I would shoot in the 70s.  
  • For the rest of the game.  Really good iron player, good scrambler (because I'm always in the trees), good wedge player, so-so chipper, and very average putter. 

A little about the Putter and what i'm looking for

  • I am a very conservative putter.  The goal is to never 3 putt which means I tend to not be aggressive on putts even inside of 20 feet.  Miss far too many birdie putts so that I can ensure the par.  My current gamer is a Odyssey Red Two Ball Fang.  Love the alignment of the two ball.  Played one through college, had a Rife for a bit that I really liked (so very excited about this EVNROLL), tried some other things and went right back to a two ball.  I like the weight and swing of the larger head
  • While I love the alignment of the two ball, I am not a consistent striker of the putter with regards to speed and stroke.  I'll come in with firm hands and a firm strike on one and the next is a longer stroke with a much softer impact - I just lack consistency there.  I tend to start most putts on the line I intend and speed is usually acceptable.  
  • I also have not made a left to right putt in probably 9 years. 
  • For this review  I went with the ER7V with the smooth flex shaft & long plumber neck
  • I wanted a more "straight back straight thru" path and liked the alignment on the head.  Fujikura says the smooth shaft maintains stability for off-center strikes, geared more towards players with long strokes and want to feel the head more.  ding ding ding! 
  • Ultimately, I want a more consistent feel and strike to my putts and hoping a putter shaft technology is just the change I need!

To close...I cant wait to get out onto the course to try this out and make some putts.  Plenty of corporate outings in September to try it out and I'm sure I'll be playing plenty in the fall.  Thank you to MGS, @Fujikura Golf , and EVNROLL for this opportunity!

- Name is Chuck Zirkle, currently living in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina (across the river from Charleston) but my roots are still in Strawberry Plains, TN and my blood runs big orange.  I went to school at UT for a short period of time in 1964-1965 before joining the Air Force and did my duty until 1971.  My first job after being medically discharged was working for a sporting goods store in Knoxville, TN.  Having left the fun job went in to management and became a district manager for numerous companies and covered up to five states.  In 1990 I went to work for the state of South Carolina as a Disabled Veterans Outreach Program Specialist and worked with veterans for 21 years until retirement in 2011.  During my state employment, member of employees professional organizational; State President (2)(Member SC Chapter Hall of Fame), District Representative (NC/SC), International Vice President and President Elect.  My wife, Connye, who is a retired Guidance Counselor, have been married for 44 years on November 12th and will be heading to St Croix, St Kitts, St Maarten, Antigua, and Barbados for our anniversary.  We love to travel, collect art, Broadway shows and our miniature dachshund Katie.     

- I started playing golf in 1984 when we moved to Mt Pleasant.  With all the opportunities to play and it be such a great golf destination I joined Patriots Point GC.  Golf is a passion for me and I get involved in any way I can.  In 1991, the Ryder Cup came to our area I experienced volunteerism and have been doing it for the PGA, SR PBA, LPGA, Nationwide, US Amateurs, in various capacities.  Even worked as a starter and ranger at the local municipal golf course where I now play (Won the employee match play tournament) and was President of the Jenkins Links Golf Association, the muni handicap club.  I have done testing for major golf companies and have been employed since 2016 as the Territorial Support Representative to the FJ Sales Representative for the Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Hilton Head/Savannah areas.   My responsibilities include doing shoe fittings at pro/ams and member/member, member/guest events in our areas, as well as passing out swag.   We work side by side with the guys from Titleist and sometimes assist customers with balls and wedges. 

- I play golf for the love of the game.  I seem to be the only sport that really challenges me and always finds a way to beat me, but rewards me and keeps bringing Chuck back.  I played softball until my mid forties and my body just said, "it is time to hand up the glove." I play in a men's senior golf league on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and try to stay involved in the local amateur invitational senior tournaments.  I have been trying to play three to four tournaments a year.  My current GHIN handicap is 15.7 from the senior tees.  Hey, after all, I will be 75 on September 10.  My lowest round in all these years was a 69 and I have had 4 holes in one.  I am a FootJoy Ambassador as well as a member of Team Titleist and attend any TT events that come up that I feel my health will allow me to play in and will be joining them September 12th at Pinehurst.    

- In my bag:  All Titleist equipment.  Driver (TSi3 10.75), Fairway (TSi2 16.5), Hybrids (816 18.0 and 818 21.0), irons (T300 5-53W), wedge (Vokey SM7 58.12D).  Why?  Have tried most all the major brands and Titleist fits my game best including the Scotty Cameron putters.  I used a number of his Newport styles before finally settling on a 2017 Newport 2 Select Chrome Notchback.  The balance, the feel and the roll I can get on my Prov1 is awesome.  That was the last year that model was made.  When purchasing new equipment I always see a Titleist certified fitter in my area. 

- My stance and grip are somewhat old school.  Learned from someone who could putt the eyes out.  I use the same grip I use to hit my other clubs and stand a bit over the ball.  The grip I prefer is the GolfPride 104cc Pistol and just feels natural.  Was taught to hit it to the hole and has worked for me.  Not really dying nor past the hole.  Kinda like if you hit it in the hole it goes in.  Kind of a tick tock tempo and letting the putter head do all the work.  My confidence level is high at most all distances.  When I warm up before each round I start from 30-40 feet to get that tempo or feel, sometimes farther, depending on the speed of the greens.  Really gives me that confidence I need for the day.  If I can get it the one foot circle image I have in my mind, I am good to go.  If I do miss, it is most likely on the high side because I read a break that was not there.  

- The model that I have chosen,  ER2v MidBlade – a three tiered wider heel and toe weighted blade, for this test is very close to the SC model that I have and have a lot of confidence in.  May be a little wider and the bottom, but the specifications are very close.  The main difference is that I have chosen a short plumbing neck which I have had in the past of precious SC putters.   I am a big fan of Fujikura shafts and have them in all the heads of my metals and that is what drew me to sign up for this event.  I think this will be a very interesting test and I feel with my experience in testing of products and knowledge of the game I will be able to offer some great insight.  I have never played a EVNRoll putter and am truly excited and honored about being chosen to test this product.   

- The pictures represent the two things that come first in my life.  Family and golf.  You can't have one without the other, and my wife supports me playing, volunteering and our love for travel.

Introduction

  • I am Jim Howard and I currently live in Winston-Salem, NC.
  • I studied Computer Engineering at the University of Miami and began my career as an embedded software engineer at Motorola in Plantation, FL.
  • I began playing golf in college and played fairly often in my early-to-mid 20’s even joining the Motorola golf league.
  • I moved to North Carolina in 2006 to attend Law School at Duke and began my career as an attorney in Winston-Salem, NC.
  • Between school, work, and the birth of our second child, I haven’t played much golf in the last 15 years.
  • This year I decided to prioritize some time for golf as I very much enjoy all aspects of the game (yes, even the regular crushing of my spirits).
  • Putting is a stronger area of my game. I have been using the same Odyssey White Hot #4 since the early 2000’s. I still very much enjoy this putter, despite it being a little long for my stroke. I am excited to see how the putter I selected for this review compares.

 

Test Putter Configuration

  • Model: I selected Evnroll’s ER8v (https://us.evnroll.com/product/er8v/). I generally prefer the feel and aesthetics of a mid-mallet and was instantly drawn to the ER8v when reviewing the options. 
  • Grip: Pistol grips feel most natural to me. Accordingly, I selected Evnroll’s pistol grip. I further chose red to add a pop of color that ties in to both the red details in putter head and to the red in the white and red cover I selected.
  • Fujikura MC Shaft: This is my first time trying a non-steel putter shaft. After mulling Fujikura’s options and descriptions (https://fujikuragolf.com/irons/mc-putter), I selected firm since it is closest to traditional steel in flex with the advantages of lower torque. 
  • Lie/Loft: Standard (I am too dumb in the ways of putter lie and loft to make an intelligent choice)
  • Hosel: Short plumber
     

Unboxing / Initial Impressions

  • Putter arrived in a white Evnroll box. Box was in good condition.
  • Putter arrived in perfect condition inside of a clear bag marked with a large Evnroll logo.
  • Putter head was shrink-wrapped in plastic.
  • Head cover: very attractive, feels high quality. The head cover has a magnetic latching mechanism to secure the head cover that I really like. “EVNROLL” is embroidered on the front and back with Evnroll’s “E” logo embroidered on the top of the cover.
  • Head: The club head looks really nice and feels great to the touch. The red and white painted lettering pops nicely.
  • Grip: Seeing the red grip in person made me glad that I selected that option along with the white and red head cover. It is thicker (larger in diameter) than the pistol grip on my Odyssey.  Holding the putter in my hand, the thicker is an improvement over the grip on my Odyssey.  It also feels a bit grippier compared to my Odyssey.
  • First swings: Length is perfect (no need to choke up a bit like I have to with my regular putter). It feels a tad heavier than my current putter, but in a good way. Practice swings felt natural very quickly. The extra weight seemed to help with the consistency of my club head path.

Right no need for him to best is at two things.

Really though congrats everyone.

Congrats!  I may have to bite the bullet and give this thing a shot anyhow and add some feedback as well.  While I don't love the stability shaft that I currently use, I do think it's an improvement over the standard steel options.  Same with the Odyssey stroke lab.  It wasn't leaps and bounds better, but definitely improved and made the putting stroke feel easier to replicate.

Congrats testers! I love Fujikura shafts, excited to hear more about these. I love my putter too much to consider changing anything but I'm still intrigued!

Congrats testers, really hoping at least one of you is already using an Evnroll, the direct comparison of results between the shaft would be great to read about.

I am not.  I am using a Odyssey 2 ball with a  steel shaft.  I am obviously very interested in the graphite shaft but also their hosel compared to the odyssey.  Looking forward to getting to the next steps and getting out to the course!

Awesome group of testers! Looking forward to your reviews on this shaft, as we already know Evnroll putters are hot!!! If the shaft don't work out you know who to DM 😀

Congratulations testers!  Do we now have 2 or 3 putter reviews going on?  In any case, we should have some kind of "putt-off" contest.  I'll be interested to hear what your thoughts are using composite shafts.  Have fun 👍.

   Congratulations Testers!!!   

 
Looking forward to the testing posts and final reviews.  Still not sure anything is ever going to replace my Pinemeadow Z-ON M1 putter so prove me wrong!

Congratulations testers!! Will anyone be trying the ER11v? 
A non-testing tip.if you don’t have an account, create an account with FedEx. FedEx notified me that I had a shipment from FedEx coming to my address with a delivery date.

Wow what an amazing opportunity to test one of the hottest putters with one of the hottest shaft makers in the market, now that's what I call a BONUS.  Looking forward to reading your thoughts on using a graphite shaft in a putter.  Good luck fellow spies!!!!

I'd love to try the Envroll putter with a graphite shaft.  My current Ping putter is about 20 years old, so I'm WAY behind the technology curve.

This would be amazing! I only put steel as a preference because I've never had graphite.

What???  Three putter tests going on at the same time???  MGS Official Testing opportunities has officially gone "off the chain". 😆

Good luck everyone!

Would love to test this! Not just for the shaft, but I'm a big fan of Guerin Rife.

I'm on the hunt for a new putter after selling my Scotty, this could be perfect timing.

could be a once in a lifetime chance to change from steel...just ordered my first wedge with a graphite shaft...times are changing

Great combo.... Evnroll with it's variable grooves and a great shaft.... would love to test it...  THANK YOU

Ping shafted some of their putters with graphite back in the 90’s, still have a Pal 4 BeCu with a graphite shaft. Found it too light and unstable and it’s been in storage since. Definitely interested in trying and reviewing the latest technology. Coming from Fuji, I would think it’s better than good. We’ll see.

2 Different testing opportunities for an Evenroll Putter this year is huge. Kudos to MGS for putting together such an amazing opportunity!!

I'm in, and I'm sure I could find a way to make the little trip south to Carlsbad for a fitting! 👍

Sounds Like a great test.  - I have several stroke labs steel/graphite , a bloodline carbon/graphite and numerous steel Scotty Phantoms 6/ 7/8 / 11 and a 12 and a Newport 2.5

I think I might be in a great position to add valuable feedback as a putter nerd with a test track 

please send mine with a nice Gravity Grip 😀

I was lucky enough to be selected for a test recently, so will let other spies have a go at this one.  Good luck, and look forward to the feedback. 

My only thought is that to really be able to give an assessment on how much this shaft is helping, would be to test against the same spec putter with a standard steel shaft.  Yeah, that increases the cost of the test, but would also give more valid results, IMHO.

Great point about the test conditions. I built a putter lab of sorts during COVID. Tried many (20) putters, 34/35 , different heads, all kinds of grips etc.  

Steel vs Graphite without any other variables would be a true test

Well, your screen name is certainly apropos !  Envious of your golf equipment budget.  That is QUITE the collection.  I take it you prefer a mallet?😆

LOL- Yes my friends said “ you have a putter problem”. I’m fortunate to have the means and our new home was ideal build a green here in AZ.  
 

definitely more of a mallet guy - one blade to keep me honest on side by side comparisons. 
 

the exception is my guest putters - Built these for $15 each from old stock.  That was after a couple dragged my perfect Scotty’s across the concrete. Problem solved 🤣

I think the stoke lap shaft for Odyssey has proven to be a better shaft for putters. One or two extra putts made per round could make me lots of money. I would love to try it.

Link to comment

Really intriguing. Might be tough to work out whether it’s the shaft or the head. The comparison with the standard Evnroll reviews will be interesting 

Link to comment

I have never tried a graphite shafted putter but sure would like the chance to test on out. It may do for putting what graphite did for the driver!
