How is it that Evnroll doesn't seem to make a single non-offset, face balanced putter?

I think they had one in their first lineup of models but not since then.

Was I the last to like that type of putter?

I think Guerin just has an idea of how a putter performs best and sticks with that. Compared to most oems his swingweights are heavy as well. That's just his design philosophy and he sticks to it I guess? I'd love to get out to Carlsbad and have a fitting with him on Quintic

I gotta say, this putter just continues to give me so much confidence. Took a little while to get accustomed to the feel, but now I'm loving it!

I'm curious who among the testers are coming from a non-groove putter.  I've gamed my PING B61 (no groove) since the late 80's and never been fitted for or tested other putters - except casual tinkering at Dick's.  Groove vs. non grooved face speaks the most to me as it pertains to a design difference that might most affect performance; solid face vs. insert being a close second.  This design resembles the PING Anser 2 which has been a model teasing my interest for some time.  

Good start to the reviews testers - looking forward to how these treat you on the course and whether they find a spot in the bag.

Not a tester, but I have had an ER2 for 2 years now and I can say that you notice insert vs. no insert more than you do grooves vs flat. With that said, and not having any way to accurately measure it, I feel like my distance control is better with ER2 than other putters which I would credit to the groove tech.

My gamer is an old Ping Cushin, so solid face with no grooves. The Evnroll is actually the first grooved putter I've hit; I've tried a few stoked with a handful of insert faces from people I know.

Totally agree that it seems the groove provides the most performance capability. I'll also say I'm not a huge fan of the feel of insert faces. They feel almost mushy to me if that makes sense. Like I'm putting with marshmallow or something. The grooves do also seem to give a slightly softer feel than solid faces, but not in a bad way at all. I prefer the feel of the ER2B face to the Cushin by far.

My previous gamer was a Wilson Staff Lake Shore. A non-groove anser-style putter. I think the biggest difference for me is the head weight difference between the two. Take a look at the difference in the head size (while still being similar anser style putters)

This is the one thing that shocked me the first time I hit Evnroll.  It has a completely different sound and feel unlike any putter I've tried before.  

How many of you have tried hitting initially off the toe and heel compared to your gamer?  Really putting that groove tech to the test.

Great question. I've fiddled around with that, but haven't tracked the stats to compare. I don't trust my consistency to deliver the face how I'd be trying to do the test justice, but it does feel way better off the Evnroll.

The Cushin feels awful when you mishit it, and goes nowhere. Biggest difference I could feel was the ER2 didn't lose nearly the distance on those off center strikes.

It was hard for me to tell how much left to right difference there was between the two, because I couldn't quite tell how much was my stroke potentially delivering the face non-square on the intentional off center hits.

@ncwoz I think you've highlighted one of my own biggest findings with the EVNROLL putter.

My miss hits still get close to the hole. I do not have a ton of data, as I have only recently started tracking putts, but I have cut down on my number of 3+ putts per round. I think much of it has to do with knocking those first putts close, even when they hit slightly off the toe.

I think the image on the EVNROLL page highlights the wrong aspect. Take a look:

Notice how they show a measurement for misses left and right of centerline when hit off the toe or heel. Those putts are off only 8". What I have experienced is my grouping of putts all falling at a similar distance. The image showing all putts within 12" of each other fore and aft is the bigger win in my opinion. Left to right you save 8", but fore and aft you save 1-2ft. Feels about right.

I’ll echo that distance control with this putter is off the charts good. I rarely 3 putt with the evnroll. My problem is when my approach shot is close I can’t hit a 4 footer for birdie, not even sniffing the hole. Headed to Spargo to see if a few tweaks help.

Coming in at $369 off the shelf, it’s not for everyone. But, if the price doesn’t scare you (how much did you pay for your last driver?) you should give this putter a serious chance.

But how can a putter add 10-15 more yards on my drives!?!?

Sarcasm aside, sounds like the Evnroll was a nice fit for you. Glad to hear that you liked it. I rolled some during my putter fitting last fall but ultimately ended up with the Spider Tour that I'm still gaming. Me thinks I need to go try them again.

I am kind of surprised by the lack of interest in this thread. I suppose I'd have to guess it's due to the ER2-B not being new tech, just a new color option...

Me too, but I guess it’s tough to be a putter when all the 2020 drivers are being released.

Any update from the testers? How are you guys liking the face shape? I think to my eye it’s a little to wide, but I want to go putt around with the 1.2 model sometime soon.

There is no doubt Evnroll make a high quality putter and the face technology is the real deal.  I would not hesitate to purchase an Evnroll putter in the future if I could find a place to get fit.  The feel is addictive and the roll is silky smooth.  I see why this putter gets such rave reviews and I look forward to purchasing a better fitting Evnroll in the near future. 

 

Sounds like maybe you might find the sweet spot with something with a bit more toe hang like the 1.2? Maybe it not matching your normal stroke was throwing off all those short putts where the line matters so much.

Exactly my thoughts in regards to the 1.2. I really had to go out of my comfort zone which tells me it just wasn’t a fit. I’ll be in Orlando in mid March and will try to hit the 1.2 then.
