My apologies if this has been discussed but I couldn’t find any info. 
Has anyone tried one and what was your experience like? Thanks!

Had a go with the ER11V. 

I'm the type of guy that looks at the putter head in the stroke. 

With that much offset, we found that I just pulled everything left. 

Ended up with a Sik Double Wide Armlock. Not a fan of the feel, but consistency of length is great. 

Pity we don't have the Cobra Agera over in Australia in the Armlock. That would have been interesting.

This thread has been slow.

But I just ordered one of these on eBay and it is scheduled to arrive today. I grabbed an ER11v at 40":

Right now, I'm adjusting my putting stroke a decent amount, but the weak point in my Arccos stats remains my 3-5' putts, which are costing me 2-3 strokes per round. Intrigued to see if this can help; even if it doesn't displace my Edel as a my primary gamer, I think that practicing with the MidLock will help tidy up my stroke.

I'll keep this thread updated.

  • GolfSpy MPR changed the title to Evnroll Midlock?

Some initial impressions:

  • Aesthetically, it's a lovely putter. The sound is dense, solid, and muted.
  • I had no significantly trouble adjusting to the longer grip and armlock setup. My standard grip is slightly left-hand low. So I took my normal grip and the protruding end of the Midlock grip set on my arm as intended.
  • I do find, however, that the longer putter brings back a bad habit I have at setup, which is to get my weight a bit toward the ball, almost using the putter as a crutch. This leads to all manner of issues with the start of my backswing. Curiously, the more I think about the armlock and the mechanical stroke, the worse this gets. The more I get comfortable with it and just putt normally, allowing the putter to do it's part in keeping my stroke stable, the better the results.
  • I did some testing with my Hackmotion sensor last night. For those who don't know, it's a device that measures change in wrist angles during the stroke. For a putter, the "ideal" is to keep quiet wrists, so a "perfect" score would be to keep both flexion/extension and ulnar/radial deviation to 0. Here is a chart with about a dozen putts last night with the Midlock vs my previous session, which was with my Edel:

  • As you can see, the numbers with the Midlock are noticeably better.
  • I've taken it to the course for nine holes so far, with limited practice. My first putt with it was from off the green, and I holed about a 25 footer. Otherwise, the results were kinda meh. I had two three putts from 25–30', where I left the first considerably short. This is not an uncommon story for those switching to armlock putters.

I live a few miles from Evnroll.  Add $100 (or is it $150) for a full in-person fitting.  When I have $500 play money, I might go.  I do like the face-balanced ones I've tinkd with.  But for now, I stick, face-balanced,  with a Musty wood mallet and sometimes a Scotty Futura X winged type counterweight, model from around 2015.  I would like a custom fitted Evnroll or Musty wood for my particular angles and arm/hand size, lie, etc.

Used to use belly putter and tried the Evnroll Midlock, but like the Bettinardi & Callaway, just couldn't get it to work. Went back to a 35" with a 2 Thumb grip. Love it!
