Evnroll HQ Fitting Experience
Today I had the opportunity to go to the Envroll HQ in Carlsbad for an in-person fitting. Below is details about my fitting.
I arrived at Evnroll HQ at 9 am for the appointment I had previously scheduled via email. I was greeted by Alan who was going to be my fitter. He gave me an intro to Envoll and asked me a few questions about my putting tendencies and then I was given the choice to do a roll board fitting or a Quintic fitting. The roll board fitting is free with the purchase of an Evnroll putter, whereas the Quintic fitting was $100. I chose the Quintic fitting because I like to look at numbers and was curious to learn more about my putting stroke.
After warming up with my current gamer, I hit 5 putts on the Quintic with the gamer to get a baseline. My current gamer is an Odyssey Sabertooth from 2008. The Quintic showed that I tended to hit putts with an open face, hence my tendency to push putts. I also had too much backspin as well.
After getting a baseline, Alan asked me more about preferences in putters, blade vs. mallet, look that I prefer, etc. While I have typically played a mallet, I wanted to try a variety of styles, to see what would give me the best numbers and best results. First up was the ER2 blade. That didn't workout well, was pushing almost all of the putts. Next up was the ER 1.2 blade, and same issue, pushing the putts. After that was the ER5 hatchback, which gave pretty good numbers. Last was the new ER10 hatchback. It was smaller and nicer looking in-person that in pictures I have seen in the past. This gave me the best results and numbers and was the one I chose.
After making my selection, we took a tour of the factory and I got to see where they put together the putters. That was a really cool experience. Then Alan picked out a ER10 from the factory and brought it back to the fitting studio. He put on my preferred grip and then we measured the swingweight. It was about E1 with the 385 gram head and the lightest grip that Evnroll offers. It was awesome that Evnroll could get the putter to E1 for a 32" putter.
Next, I took the finished putter back to the Quintic and rolled some more putts. After looking at the numbers, Alan decided that my putter should be bent 2 degrees flat. He adjusted the putter and then I rolled some more putts and got the best results of the day. He had also made some suggestions on some small things to change with my putting stroke. One thing that I found is that making some small changes did improve my numbers on Quintic, but I was also missing putts. When I used my normal putting stroke with the ER10, I was making more of the 15 to 20 foot putts during the fitting.
Lastly, after wrapping up and paying, I went out to the parking lot to head out. In the parking lot, I ran into Guerin and I introduced myself and had a quick chat. Overall, this was an awesome experience and I can't wait to game the ER10.
