An "interesting" experiment with putter grips on an Evnroll 5 putter

Tried an Evnroll 5 putter.  Came with one of their "Tru Tac" grips that weighs in at 90 grams.  Putted acceptably but nothing special and the "feel" just wasn't quite right for me.  Decided to experiment a bit.

I removed the grip and replaced it, initially, with a Super Stroke Traxion 2.0

; one of those grips where you can add a weight down the shaft if you so desire.

The grip change resulted in going from a 90 gram to about a 45 gram putter grip weight.

Took it to the course with me yesterday and put a 50 gram and 75 gram weight in my bag just in case I felt the need to change based on putter performance.

It wasn't a particularly idyllic day yesterday morning in southeastern Wisconsin; temp was about 54 degrees when teeing off and winds were in the 14-18 mph range.  Felt a lot more like November than June to be honest.

Made three ten footers, drained a 50 foot birdie putt, and had a pretty stress free day on the greens all in all.

To be clear, I've used heavier grip weight putters in the past, generally felt they gave me a better "feel" of what was going on with the putter.

While this might be the exception I'm going to ride it for a while and see if I'll finally have some stability in my putting game.

Played yesterday, which was a really dumb idea considering it was about 94 with wind velocities in the 25-35 mph range.  Had some time before the round to experiment a bit more. 

I'd installed a SS Traxion grip so I could add weight down the grip.  Installed a 75 gram weight which, in other applications, I've found to be helpful.

It wasn't helpful.  Removed it and, voila, my results improved quite a bit.

Seems I'm one who likes a heavier feel to the head when it comes to putter construction.

I may try a 25 or a 50 gram counterweight just to be thorough.  The good news is I have no preconceived notions so it'll be easy to be candid.

I did something similar with my Evnroll ER10 Outback putter.   I selected the Evnroll gravity grip when I had the putter built and it just didn't seem to perform the best for me.  So, I took off the gravity grip and replaced it with a legacy Super Stroke Slim 3.0 countercore grip.  I started without the weighted insert, but eventually added the 50-gr. weight.  Since doing so my stroke and putter feel better and I'm making more putts.

Unfortunately, after a few rounds with the weighted Super Stroke grip, they aerated and top dressed our greens (the first of three during the summer).  As result, I switched to a higher lofted putter to help me get the ball up and rolling over the sand-filled holes.  After aeration number three later this summer I'll switch back and continue my version of your experiment.

The "experiment" part caught my eye. Part of my fun in golf now. Remember everyone is different that is why there is such a variety of equipment these days. Do not go mainstream find what works for you no matter how out of the box of conventional thinking it seems. There is no one perfect by the book way to do things

Evnroll has 50 gram Tour Tac grip if you like the shape and feel.  I don’t know if they offer it on their website but you can order it directly with a phone call.  Good luck!
