Stage 1 – Evnroll ER2 Midblade Black – Wedgie – 10-31-19

BREAKING NEWS:  Halloween 2019, East Greenwich, RI.  There is a man on the loose wielding a murdered out putter.  It appears to be an Evnroll ER2 Midblade Black Putter.  The man is described as being in his early 50’s, about 6 feet tall wearing khaki shorts with a royal blue Nike quarter zip top.  He is wanted for multiple robberies.  The robberies occurred at Valley Country Club on and around the 18th hole.  If you see this man do not approach because he is known to carry a weapon on the golf course.

I can’t believe they interrupted the Price is Right for that story.  Wait…it’s me they are talking about!  Yeah, it is like stealing when you’re rocking an Evnroll putter but that money was earned fair and square.  I need to tell my story so I don’t go to the slammer and do hard time for a crime I didn’t commit.

I married a TV personality that gave it up several years ago to focus on our now 14 year old twins.  I grew up in the Midwest and graduated high school with a Heisman Trophy winner who at the time I considered a friend.  The quickest insight to me is that when I tell the Heisman story I tell people he went to school with ME, not the other way around.  I graduated from the University of Kansas like everyone in my immediate family and my dad was the Jayhawk mascot when he went there.  I moved to New England in 97 and doubt I’d ever go back to Kansas to live.  New England has a ton to offer with beaches, mountains, seasons and golf.

My golf life started as a kid when I’d steal my dad’s driver while he was at work.  We lived close to a public course so my brothers and I always had a huge stash of balls we’d get from wondering the course.  I’d take the driver, walk to the Arkansas River at the end of my street and try to hit balls over it.  I honestly don’t think I ever did get one all the way over until I was in high school.  My other golf lessons were on the driving range when hitting the biggest slice was how we determined the winner between me and my brothers.  Yeah, not a good way to learn the game but that is how I did.

IMG_1039.thumb.jpg.6dff2ff42c5084c36566ad6d5355d2bc.jpg

I belong to a Country Club that I would describe as long.  I’ve taken GolfSpy_Stroker there and he would describe it as short.  I guess that is part of what makes golf so unique to every individual.  The greens at my home course can be very fast at times but tend to slow down this time of year.  Since joining the club I’ve noticed a significant uptick in 3 putts so I jumped at the chance to test the ER2.

IMG_1033.thumb.jpg.1ed0fcf557090ec6d5d46f7fe3dc343b.jpg

Prior to testing I was in Dallas for business and hit the PGA Superstore to test the putter to see if it would be a good match for me and if I should apply to test.  The stock 35” ER2 Midblade Black seemed to fit the bill.  Once selected as an official tester Evnroll called and did an over the phone fitting.  Basic questions such as length, loft and lie.  He stumped me a bit when he asked if my hands were in front or behind the ball at impact.   I didn’t know to be honest but since I don’t forward press he felt the standard 2 degrees of loft would be fine.  I also felt he talked me out of the Gravity Grip by saying it was shaped differently than the SNSR grip I use on a few of my putters so I should go with the standard grip.

IMG_1029.thumb.jpg.fa50dd809551af3c53c6af99cf6cc025.jpg

When the putter arrived it looked awesome.  I yanked it out of the box and I could feel the weight of the putter was much greater than I am used to.  Not a bad thing at all, just noticeable.  I was immediately drawn to the quality of the putter.  It is literally the nicest putter I have ever laid hands on.  The black shaft, black grip and black putter head are badass and accent the putter in all the right places with red.  I went straight to my master bedroom for some putting.  Now I have a fairly new home but it’s nice because I can practice straight 15 footers in the master, a double breaker in my son’s room and a left to right putt in my daughter’s room.  Regardless of my homes foundation I hit my first putt and literally thought to myself, oh wow!  The putter itself just felt amazing.  Almost like I have been mishitting every putter I’ve ever used my entire life.  I grabbed my current gamer, Wilson Windy City, and rolled a few and immediately noticed the difference in the roll.  I could hear the skid on the carpet from the Wilson putter and I’d say the ER2 rolled straighter almost like it was taking some of the break out of the putts.  It was weird.

IMG_1035.thumb.jpg.bdeee1c8ef52b3bf2ee975b7fc214946.jpg

Evnroll claims their face technology in a nutshell slows down center impact strikes which effectively speeds up off center hits so you get consistent distances regardless of where you strike the ball.  I did notice I was coming up short putt after putt until I got used to the differences between putters.  The putter head is a little thicker, front to back, than a traditional blade with a straight white sight line which I’ll touch on in stage 2.  The head cover is very nice as well.  It closes via magnets which I love.  Given the larger head size of the putter it took me a few holes to smoothly get the putter out of the cover without it getting hung up. 

IMG_1047.thumb.JPG.205edbb15b841cf7bd63923426d6f534.JPG

Since my testing has already begun I’ve played a ton of golf and spent countless hours on the practice green working with this putter.  I came into the testing averaging 1.8 putts per hole but I miss a lot of greens. Given that info I don’t think my putts per hole average will outweigh my gut when determining if this putter will stay in the bag or not.

IMG_1045.thumb.jpg.1478ef93d539cad0cf1c18570b71cfc6.jpg

Most of all thank you MSG and Evnroll for this awesome opportunity to test the ER2 Midblade Black putter.  I am happy to answer any questions or do any type of testing you guys want.  Just let me know what you would like to see.  And come back to find out if I was apprehended.

Brilliant @Wedgie, that read was well worth the wait 👏👏😁😎

Has anyone else had any issues getting used to the ER2B from their gamer? It took me at least a month or two of probably 4-5 putting practice sessions a week to really feel like I could trust my stroke.

Based on the feel I was getting, my best guess is it had to do primarily with the big difference in toe hang between the two putters. But now that I'm accustomed to the ER2B, I'm more confident with it than I ever was before with my Cushin.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Honestly I am still struggling with it and I have practiced a ton. I played in Florida and had 6 birdie putts inside of 5 feet and missed all of them. With that being said my distance control has been great so I have for the most part eliminated 3 putts. I also took the liberty of blacking out the white alignment line and that helped but still missing short putts. My season is winding down so I’ll stick with carpet putting and I hope to dial it in by spring time.

I'm loving the blacked out putter!!  Looks amazing!!  I can't wait to see how these things do!  

Do any of you feel that winter weather will be an issue on getting these things out on the course?

Unfortunately for me, yes. We've gotten 5 or 6 inches of snow the last few days so I think my season is done. 😢

I have been putting quite a bit indoor however, so it won't all come to a halt. And I got to get a solid amount of rounds in before the dreaded white stuff started falling.

It will definitely slow me down but I will find a way to play at least 18 each month thru travel over the winter.

I look forward to sharing my Stage 2 review with you guys. We had a LONG summer, but unfortunately I am probably being pushed into the indoor putting practice group too with the weather we've had blowing in.

Just kidding. High of 78 this week.

How's the testing going, guys?   Are you finding anything in particular that this putter does better than your previous gamer?  Anything that your previous gamer does better than the Evnroll?

Biggest difference for me so far is actually starting my putts on line. Which surprised me; my own understanding of the groove technology had me thinking I'd see more improvement in the way of distance control, but I've been pleasantly surprised at how true the ER2B rolls!

I've done some head to head testing between my current gamer and the ER2B, again, I've been really surprised at my findings! I was honestly a little skeptical that there'd be much of a difference between the two...but pleasantly surprised. More details to come in my Phase 2!

The Evnroll definitely rolls the ball noticeably better than any putter I’ve ever used and my distance control has been really good. I just can’t for the life of me align this putter properly to save my life. I may go have it tweaked a bit to see if that helps.

I sold my ER3 for this exact reason. After just over a year and continually missing short putts I couldn't take it anymore. Best roll I have ever seen on a putter but if it doesn't go in it doesn't matter.

I'm slumping right now with the Spider X and might put my ER2 back in the bag for a change of scenery

I do sometimes wonder how much of putting changeups are actually tech/spec driven and how much are purely confidence. And that's not too say that confidence, or lack thereof, is a bad reason to change it up; I think standing over the putt and feeling confident is huge.

I don't know, something about putting has just always felt like a mystery to me. Way more of a soft science compared to relatively black and white specs and performance that I feel you get from the full swing clubs.
