Golf Equipment test and review: Evnroll ER6 iRoll Putter,
If you read my feature of James Wood putting studio in the last issue of PGR Magazine you will know that one of James’s recommendations was to try a mallet style putter with a shaft that came more into my body so I could get over the putter more. He also said that a forward press before I make my putting stroke would help me the ball rolling quicker.
Known as the sweetest face in golf the Evnroll technology means no matter where on the face you hit the ball, it ends up going the same distance as if you hit it out of the sweet spot.
The head is red anodized 6061 aluminum, 100% CNC milled from a single billet that helps give each putter a solid strike, but it’s the Guerin Rife design tapered grooves that help off centre strikes roll the same distance as strikes that come out of the middle of the club.
The mallet houses a weight that is housed inside the putter and can be adjusted if you prefer a heavier or lighter putter these are 35” putter uses a 105g weight, 34” putter uses a 120g weight and the 33” putter uses a 150g weight.
The shaft is a single bend mounted directly in the head and fits perfectly into your body helping you get your head over the ball and with the three alignment lines on the top of the putter along with two dots all helping those who have trouble lining the ball up on putts.
I tested the 33” version of this putter so I could get over the ball more as James had suggested and the design of the shaft helped put my hands in the right position.
The design was great and I loved the way the head design is slightly back which also meant I didn’t have to implement the forward press as James had suggested as it had already been incorporated into the head design.
I really enjoy putting with the EM6 once I had got used to the set-up, the sound off the face, the way the head sat behind the ball and the alignment graphics all added up to some well hold putts and you all know what its like, you build confidence in your stroke and you not only start to hole more putts but you start to eliminate the 3-putt which is what we all want to achieve.
I do prefer a blade but using the EM6 over the two weeks of testing and seeing how well I am holing out with it and more importantly cutting out those 3-putts I certainly recommend you get one of these in your wands in your hands soon.
