EVNROLL ER2 Journey

Recommended Posts

Wanted to start a post on my journey with the EVNROLL ER2. It's coming in the mail today or tomorrow and I'm convinced it's going to be a staple in the bag for a long time. I had before been a Scotty Cameron guy and even an Odyssey Tank #7 for awhile. But I was due up for some change and when I went to go demo a bunch I settled on the ER2.

 

The ones I went to demo overall several days included:

  •      Taylormade Spider Tour
  •      Bettinardi Queen B 8
  •      Ping Sigma G Tyne 
  •      Ping Sigma G Doon
  •      Scotty Cameron 5W
  •      Envroll ER2

 

Clearly I though I was headed the Mallet direction but actually the ER2 and the Queen B 8 were my favorite two and they are the more stretched blade style. It was honestly a huge toss up between the Queen B8 and the ER2 but I found I was more consistent with the ER2. Plus, I loved their lighter option jumbo grip. So I made the call, got fitted, and pulled the trigger on it. 

 

I'll follow up soon when it arrives and include pictures and hopefully some video with my GoPro. Not sure what the goal of the post is other than to give an average-joe putter review that will be honest, probably "make-fun-of-worthy", and give some valuable insight. 

 

Be Back Soon,

Thanks for sharing and looking forward to your story development!

Good final choices, that queen b 8 is such a sweet putter. I've played a mallet for the last several years, but to going to a wide body blade myself.

I'm curious if you consider yourself to be a good consistent putter or do you seem to always struggle putting. In other words....

Some people are just good putters I believe and others are not.

Which are you?

I'm a relatively consistent putter I'd say! My coach and I having slowly been working on a switch from a left hand low grip back to a traditional grip and I found that the Odyssey Tank 7 just wasn't a good fit anymore after the change. But overall I usually average about 28-33 putts per 18 depending on the course. But I see what you mean! This definitely isn't about a switch because I'm struggling or anything like that though!

I made the Evnroll switch over the winter (went with ER5) and love it.  It took a while to get used to the distance control for me though.  I found myself leaving everything short early, then blowing them by until I settled down and figured out the feel.

Following your journey! I'm very intrigued by the EVNROLL lines and the ER2 or ER5 are going to be my next purchase. Looking forward to hearing what you have to say about the ER2. Did you test any other models besides the ER2?

 

Good luck!

Thanks! And yes besides the list I provided above I tried the ER8 as well! I just found the acoustics to be a bit different and preferred the sound of the ER2 a bit more!!

hallon, you sound like me in that you're generally a good putter. I've only had one putter fitting but didn't gain anything from it other than now owning an overly expensive putter. I found my putting didn't improve or get worse. I'm still a good putter.

Only time will tell I guess!! I'm sure they're will be some getting used to it, but I agree that no new putter will magically shave off 3-6 strokes a round. With that being said putter technology has changed in the last 5-6 years and I'm interested to see what the ER2 will do performance and confidence wise!

A more muted sound, the ER2 had a crisp metal sounds to it comparatively that I just liked better!!

Definitely interested in this, I consider myself to be a very good putter and I've been using the Odyssey #7 shape in various models for several years, but I'm always willing to experiment with new putters.

 

How quickly does the ball start rolling off the face? Too me that's the first thing I look for in a new putter.

Check out stage 2 of my review in the thread I linked. I posted slow motion video of the Evnroll vs my Scotty. Fitting (correct loft) play a big role in it, but the grooves definitely play a part too

UPDATE #1:

            The ER2 finally came yesterday! I showed up at home and ripped apart a pristine box to see it. Then of course like any “normal” golfer I sped to my local putting green. At first glance without hitting a ball the look of the ER2 is clean and not too long or wide. I think EVNROLL struck a good balance in size. Weight wise, I went with the middle-weighted head at 370g. I also opted for the ‘oversize' grip that really isn't that overwhelming (see photo below). Just to note the jumbo grip is the 62g version not the 117g version. Before I get any further the full specs are:

            EVNROLL ER2

            Length: 32.5”

            Lie: 69 Degrees

            Loft: 2 Degrees

            Head weight: 370g

            Grip: Oversize: 62g

 

WHAT I LOVED:

  1. DISTANCE CONTROL – I took me a minute or two to understand that the ER2 doesn't come off the face ‘hot' it just rolls really really pure (and by that I probably mean very quickly). So honestly the first 10 balls I hit (from 15ft) I ran 9 of 10 either in the hole firmly or a good foot past. But the incredible thing is they all went the same EXACT distance (I mean literally the balls must be dating because they were all over each other lol). Once I got the feel of it rolling quickly it was easy to dial it in.
  2. SOUND – The sound out of the middle of the face of the putter is a crisp metal ‘ting'. What I love the most is that if you're on either side of center the sound is different (still going the same distance, though) and gives immediate feedback. I don't have an putter design skills but my guess is the sound differences have something to do with variable width and depth grooves. (Tried to include a photo of that as well.
  3. GRIP and HEADCOVER – Besides the white and red being absolutely baller (new terms kids are using these days) there other things I loved. The oversize grip really isn't too big and fits my weird hands well. I run my right index finger down the grip so the length is a great fit as well. The headcover is premium but the thing I loved the most is the magnet closure. It's not heavy Velcro (which used to scratch up my old Scotty) and it's not a thin long weak strip of magnet up the whole backside of the headcover. It's encloses the putter with one round heavy-duty magnet at the bottom. This is a big deal because it doesn't scratch and the magnet holds the cover on well. It might seem small but it's telling me ENVROLL is going the extra mile even with tiny things.

 

WHAT I WOULD”VE LIKE TO SEE DIFFERENT:

  1. ALIGNMENT – There really isn't anything I disliked/hated and the ER2 thus far, but just to note some improvements for the next line. In terms of alignment I like the white line for alignment, but there are these two dots that signal the middle of the putter face. They're not bad but on a sunny day (like it was yesterday) I feel like I almost have to look for them. For me, it would be a simple fix as paint filling the dots black (or even EVNROLL RED!!).
  2. GRIP CAP – The last thing was the cap at the top of the grip. It seemed like ENVROLL went the whole nine yards with the entire putter until the cap of the grip at the top. It seemed like the cap just sort of got slapped on there at the end. It probably won't even matter to anyone but the way I hold the putter I like the butt of my left palm near the end of the grip (In my head it makes me ‘feel' the weight of the head a little better). Super small detail, so I know I'm getting a bit picky.

 

WHAT I WOULD SCORE IT (through the first 100+ putts):

Performance: 24/25 (For the small roll adjustment)

Looks: 23/25 (Incredible besides the two-dot thing)

Feel: 25/25 (Enough said)

Build Quality: 24/25 (Would be perfect besides grip cap)

 

OVERALL: 96/100

 

PHOTOS: (plus see conclusion at very bottom)

CONCLUSION: It is going in the bag for the next 5 rounds or so to get the real test! Headed the play Bellerive CC in Saint Louis over the 4th (Home of the 2013 Kitchen Aid Senior PGA Championship) and Glen Echo CC in Saint Louis as well (Home of the only US Olympic Golf Course). So, the ER2 will get some incredible tests. Be back with another update/new scoring after I get a bigger sample size. Don't want the jump the gun quite yet! (But this could be a long-term gamer).

 

 

P.S. Videos will come after the 4th as well!!

 

 

All the best,

 

Dave

dont know if they fixed it, but keep an eye out on the ball marker, it like to jump off the putter cover.  Great Review BTW.....

UPDATE #2:

 

18 (41). 14 (37). 15 (37). 14 (36).

 

Those were my # of putts (and scores) from a couple days of golf over the 4th! And that last 14 was part of a 36 and one of my best rounds to date. To be fair I should note that I had gotten a lesson, before the last 9 holes, focusing on my long irons and driving the ball (my weakest areas).

 

While I didn't get any video like I was hoping I want to re-grade the ER2 in this post. Before I do that, some basic observations:

  • I actually replaced the stock grip with a super stroke 3.0 XL that just fit my hands better and more importantly quieted them.
  • It took me a bit to adjust with how quickly the ball gets rolling, especially on downhill putts.
  • I really had to focus on just letting the putter do its job and not trying to help the ball
  • I didn't notice any better dispersion in putts 0-10 feet, but on the long-range putts I can definitely tell that the grooves help on slight mis-hits.
  • The ER2 is absolutely money from 10 feet and in, which is partially a confidence thing but every time I got within 10 feet I felt like I was going to hole it.
  • With that being said I really struggled on downhill puts and control the distance (not the line).
  • They fixed the ball marker magnet (a user had previously mentioned to watch out for that!). Also, that ball marker is bad a**!

Overall, the ER2 will be staying in the bag for the remainder of the season. I definitely need to trust it a little more, but that's my side of things not the putter. My re-grade is below!!

 

WHAT I WOULD SCORE IT V2.0 (through about 400+ putts):

    Performance: 23/25 (Downhill Speed Control)

    Looks: 23/25 (Still an Incredible looking putter!)

    Feel: 24/25

    Build Quality: 22/25 (SuperStroke grips should be an option when custom building this)

 

OVERALL: 92/100

      First time long time…

      …and as far as I can tell there has been lots of My Golf Spy Hype about the boutique brand Evnroll, but I'm here to ask the real life buzz questions - Does anyone have any insight on Evnroll Putters? The tech is captivating, I love Guerin Rifes former work, and the look of the midblade ER2 almost requires some time alone.....

      Anyway, I’m turning to the community for info mostly because I don’t trust/have contempt for Golf Digest and the PGA Tours equipment blogs, so any actual human/user info on this unique brand would be greatly appreciated!

      Question mostly pertaining to:
      1. Does the Sweet Face Technology actually work?
      2. Where's the best place to try one out? 
      3. Where's the best place to buy one? 
      Keep in mind I live in rural Ontario! (Shout out to MGS Canada)

      I've always liked that quote from Yogi Berra. It also is painfully evident to my golf game that I need to pay more attention to it. I've noticed over the years that  I tend to leave more putts short than I roll long. It is something that I haven't paid too much attention to, just aware that I should try to get putts to the hole more often.
      Watching golf for many many hours this weekend I decided to count how many putts the pro's left short... it turns out, that unless they are outside 25', they don't. They always get it to the hole, go figure.
      Checking my Shot Scope putting data... I manage to leave 72% !!! of my putts short. This has gone from minor thought in the back of my mind to 5 alarm fire that I need to address now. I have a new goal in golf, 0 putts per round left short. I have to trust that I can make the 4' come back putt.
      I don't know how many of you out there suffer from this same issue. But I challenge all of you to never leave a putt short. If you need to say it in a very marine sounding voice akin to never leaving a man behind, then please do. 
      Let me know if you can successfully pull this off. Apparently, I am only 14 putts/round from success....

      I'm selling my two previous gamer putters. A Scotty Cameron Select Newport 3 and an Evnroll ER1. Both are 34" and have the original headcover. The Evnroll knocked the Scotty out of the bag two years ago, and the new Evnroll ER5B just knocked the ER1 out of the bag. I'd love to keep them, but they can get more love elsewhere. Asking $175 for each, shipping included. Payment by Venmo. Let me know if you have any questions.

      Just picked up an ER5 (had a gift certificate and a coupon code so got an even better deal!).
      The site says these are refurbished and "B" condition, but - the one I received is essentially like new! No scratches, no smudges, clean and shiny and a brand new grip. Nice!
      https://www.budgetgolf.com/Evnroll-Certified-Refurbished.html
      Looks like they have ER1, -2, -3, -5 and -7; the 5, at least, was available in three lengths and there was a LH.
