Evnroll has introduced their new V-Series of putters, with V standing for versatile, in six different head shapes along with four different hosel options to provide a model which suits every type of golfer.
The brand has employed the use of a sophisticated fitting program based around the Quintic Ball Roll, a camera-based putting analysis system, along with a variety of different head weights with different grip and shaft options.
Their research has found that golfers can quickly improve their putting simply by making sure that they are using the correct hosel to produce the right amount of offset, toe hang and setup behind the ball at address.
The four different hosels offered in the new V-Series range are:
Short Slant - this produces more toe hang to promote a more rotational swing-path that releases through the hitting area. This slant neck design has a hosel pin that fits inside the shaft, allowing it to flow seamlessly into the putter head. This is often the preferred look for better players.
Short Plumber-Neck - this slightly reduces toe hang and so reduces the rotation of the swing path. This plumber neck features a classic over-fit, collar-style hosel with a vertical full-shaft offset look.
Long Plumber-Neck - this further reduces toe hang and allows for more of a straight-back-straight-through swing path. This plumber-neck also features a classic over-fit, collar-type hosel with a vertical full-shaft offset presentation.
Long Slant - a two-shaft offset with an additional two degrees of loft to accomodate Evnroll's new Midlock putter line.
The six different models offered in the V-Series range are:
- ER11V - This is the flagship model of the new V-Series line, and is a high performance mallet for forgiveness and stability which comes with a clean compact look.
The front portion of the putter is a black anodised alumium, with a ball-sized 'griping cavity' directly behind the hitting zone, which positions the putter's mass out and back in the head to help raise the MOI. There are also 303 stainless steel weights positioned to the extreme edges of the head, to further enhance the MOI.
The ER11V combines high MOI, multiple hosel options and adjustable weighting, it is the most customisable putter offered by Evnroll.
This is Evnroll's classic heel-toe weighted flange blade.
A shorter, wider heel-toe weighted flange blade.
A winged mallet with a hatched-out centre section.
A rear perimeter weighted full mallet.
A classic midsized players' mallet.
All Evnroll putters are CNC milled and feature Guerin Rife's 'Sweet Face Technology', a mill pattern which is said to provide consistent performance across the whole hitting area for better accuracy and dispersion.
Available from March 2021, the V-Series blade putters are priced at £369 whilst the mallet putters are £389. Both putters can be upgraded for an extra £10 to be fitted with the Gravity Grip.
Evnroll Midlock Putters
The new Midlock range is a new putter concept which Evnroll say offers a 'streamlined and simplified' version of the Armlock method which has been used on the PGA Tour by Matt Kuchar, Bryson DeChambeau and Webb Simpson.
The idea behind Armlock putting is that it quietens the hands and wrists during the putting stroke, encouraging one smooth motion where the arms and the putter are linked as one.
However, the brand say that it is not something you'll see offered to amateur golfers by most brands because of the cost of construction and the requirement for custom fitting for each golfer.
So Evnroll has instead created Midlock for regular golfers - a method which is said to be 'Armlock' made easy.
The key behind the Midlock putters is the grip designed combined with a long slant neck hosel. By positioning the grip sideways, the deep pistol shape pushes the shaft angle away from the forearm and produced 4 degrees of loft instead of 9 degrees in an Armlock putters - so it is more similar to a forward press motion.
This setup allows for a one-piece putting stroke with no moving parts.
The putters are 6" longer than the length required for a conventional putter setup, with the 6" extra pistol section being that part which extends above the hands. Therefore if you use a 34" putter, you would need to use a 40" Midlock putter.
The Midlock putters are available in four different Evnroll models - one blade (ER2), two mallets (ER5 and ER8) and one high-MOI design (ER11 mallet). Available from March, they are priced at £399 each.
