I went to Golf Galaxy today just for a regrip for my driver (Ping G400 Max). I actually called to see if they had the grip I wanted and when I arrived, it was only the midsize SMH. I brought my TaylorMade Spider S putter that I purchased a year ago and have never really liked it. It was an upgrade of my 15 year old Scotty Cameron Newport 2. Did not really go in there thinking of purchasing a new putter. Possibly just a new grip for it.
I was talking to one of the fitters/ pros at GG, and I asked him what I should do with my putter. Regrip my Spider or make it longer like a Fred Couples putter or the recent EvnRoll putters. I made a comment I suck at putting. The guy I was speaking with waived me over to the putting green and I rolled about 5 balls as he eyed my putting stroke. He said I am rolling the wrong putter and that I need a toe hang putter. I thought well I will just go back to my Scotty that I just put a superstroke wristlock on it.
He left because he had a fitting and I was looking around the putting green for putters. I grabbed a odyssey #9 from the used rack and was not fully impressed. Then I saw a EvnRoll putter it was the 11v Mallet and was 35 inches with the long plumber neck which is actually still face balance. I said well it's basically like my Spider putter. I was not full impressed it.
Then I notice a EvnRoll ERV2 with a Long Slant plumber neck and was 40 inches long, actually when I was watching reviews on this from Not allowed because of spam I thought the length and Long Slant plumber neck was just for the 11V model.
I began rolling it and I just fell in love with it, and kept saying this is what I have been wanting. I traded my Spider in because I hate club clutter and I am terrible at selling clubs ( I know I can make more on the private end) and purchased the Evnroll ERV2 40 inch mid lock. Looks absolutely incredible. I came home and went straight to my local course putting green and practiced and I absolutely love it.
A while back ago I went to the PGA superstore and I was rolling a bunch of gimmicky putters, Axis1, Seemore (Which I use to own one), Edel, and a few others. I picked up a 34 inch Evnroll Tourstroke with crazy offset and I absolutely made everything and felt extremely comfortable with it. I also watched videos from CoolClubs and were talking about the knew Wristlock Superstroke grip and pairing it with the Evnroll Tourstroke and coming back to square is so important.
Lastly, in my league a guy gave me a tip stating you want your putter to come back to square and past the ball. One of the best putting tips I ever got. Well this EvnRoll does it, especially the Long Slant Plumber neck hosel and pairing it with a longer putter just keeps my body and hands super quiet.
I am playing tomorrow, so I will keep you posted.
It has 3 things that I always wanted in a putter.
1. Fred couples length putter that isn't technically armlock.
2. A Scotty Cameron Newport 2 looking head a non mallet head.
3. Tour Slant Plumber neck. True MOI, coming back to square.
