I'm not trying to be a wise acre here, but isn't the idea supposed to be find the "true" sweet spot on a putter (ie. where it most resists twisting) and then try to hit the ball there? I get what you're saying, I just think it's a bit unnecessary. Do we really need it to feel the same over the entire face?

It really isn't about feel; and I prefer to have different feels based on where I hit the ball on the face.   The purpose of EvnRoll grooves its to make ball speed more consistent across the face.  Miss heel or toe and it goes the same distance as center strikes.

I have two other putters I can't ever imagine getting rid of, the Odyssey Stroke Lab Double Wide (phenomenal putter) is plenty stable for when I want something different to mix it up, and my custom built Yes! Tracy has a permanent spot in my second bag I keep up on Long Island. Notice the trend? All 3 are variations of the Anser style putters... why do my eyes always wander? 🙄

i love my double wide!

classic shape, long alignment line, stroke lab shaft, just awesome

Okay, now I get the idea behind the groove technology. My question would be does that tech really help me if I have to feel like I'm hitting my putt harder than normal to get it to the hole? I'm not comfortable debating this beyond that one question though, because I've always been one who prefers a blade putter and the ER5 is a mallet.

I'll never forget when the Stroke Lab putters came out about 3 years ago. I was in a small local shop which is very highly regarded for their custom fitting work. I tried what I think was called the Sabertooth(?) version first, and I knew the fitter was looking at me and thinking "...and this guy thinks he's a decent putter?" I mean I couldn't sniff the hole, LOL.

I was really embarrassed and wanted to crawl under a rock. Then I saw the Double Wide model, picked it up and started making everything. Suddenly I looked like a poor man's Brad Faxon. My point is, I'm not trying to knock Evnroll, Maybe if I'd bought a different model I'd be here singing their praises.

What I can say though is the 5.0 wasn't for me. No harm, no foul though. I had a gift card and took a flyer based on the great reviews I'd read on the putter. With the 90 day playability deal I got to scratch an itch. The Newport 2.0 is like an old friend.. something I'm always comfortable having around.

Not looking for a debate either; just stating how the groove design works.  EvnRoll does have blades,  but when it comes to any golf club you have to figure out what works for you.   You have developed a particular "feel" for distance control and any putter that changes that will probably give you the same impression.  If you don't want to change then no EvnRoll putter will work for you.   Speed control isn't just about blade vs. mallet so the need to change your stroke length could happen with any putter you pick up.

Bought these new Nike's spikeless. They look sharp and I've always loved the red. I just got rid of my Adidas Tour360s and replaced them with these. I couldn't walk 18 without getting blisters on the back of my ankles/heels. Super disappointed as I was an Adidas guy back to the OG 360s.20201021_172947.jpeg

Ordered the 11 iron for my new Honma irons to fill the gap between 10 and 54*.    Had to go through Homna sales to get them to generate an invoice since you cannot order single irons online.   Great service as they had the invoice generated in 24 hours and indicated it would take about a week.

That is a nice putter, a couple of months back I saw one on FB for 180 bucks, we were out of town, I contacted the seller showing interest, but by the time we were back home it was sold.

Just like yours, his looked super clean and well taken care of.

... Obviously the Pros have higher swing speeds but if most golfers saw just how high they hit the ball on tour, they would be pretty amazed.

Yeah not the topic of this thread but just to corraborate what he said - I attended the Barclays at Bethpage Black a few years ago, and my buddy and I walked all over the (very long!) course to watch different players at different holes - and I can fully attest to the fact that the pros' drives are literally sky-high!

That and the *CRACK * off the club face .. and seeing what they could carry off the tee .. really are impressive 👍

Careful with smash factor. Obviously you saw improvement so the point is moot, but OEM's are tricking LM's with shapes and colors to increase smash.

Huh... Thought smash was a calculated result using swing speed and ball speed was inputs?

To my knowledge, LMs use the ball speed to estimate smash, with GCQuad being an exception because it can actually track clubhead speed? So ball speed is the input, smash is estimated or assumed based on the club you tell the LM you're hitting, and therefore it can calculate what your SS "should be". So for example, this guy hit his driver and ball speed was 150, smash is preset at 1.45, therefore swing speed was calculated at 103ish. It's one of the issues I have with my local pro shops because they use a fixed smash on their GC4 (I don't even know if they pay for the extra cameras to make it a quad) and trick people into distance gains.

Maybe trackman can also measure CHS because it's further behind the player, and also a more advanced radar? Not sure how that doppler tech works

I’ve been suspect of some of the results I’ve been given by LM’s in Golf Shops. I don’t know enough about the current Technology to challenge any of the results.
One in session in particular a few years was definitely bogus.
