Evnroll has unveiled two new putter ranges for 2021 – the V-Series and the Midlock, both of which will be at retail in March.
The V in the V-Series stands for ‘versatile’, as it offers the widest range of set-up options in an Evnroll range, with six distinctive head shapes, each with a choice of four different hosel options.
Evnroll has developed a sophisticated fitting programme using the Quintic Ball Roll camera-based putting analysis system, and a variety of different head weights married with different grip weights, and shaft options. After thousands of fittings, Evnroll has determined that golfers can significantly improve their putting by simply having a putter with the correct hosel to create optimised offset, toe hang and visual setup behind the ball at address.
Armed with this knowledge, Evnroll has created the V-Series to offer golfers their preferred hosel on their preferred head design in order to customise toe hang to match their stroke arc. The hostel options are short slant, long slant, short plumber neck and long plumber neck.
A Short Slant hosel neck produces more toe hang, promoting a more rotational swing path that releases through the hitting area. This design has a hosel pin that fits inside the shaft, allowing it to flow seamlessly into the putter head.
The Long Slant design has a two-shaft offset with an additional two degrees of loft to accommodate Evnroll’s new Midlock putter line.
The Short Plumber-Neck hosel slightly reduces toe hang and therefore reduces the rotation of the swing path. This plumber neck features a classic over-fit, collar-type hosel with a vertical full-shaft offset presentation.
Long Plumber-Neck hosel further reduces toe hang and allows for a more straight-back-straight-through swing path. This plumber neck features a over-fit, collar-type hosel with a vertical full-shaft offset presentation.
The flagship member of the new Evnroll V-Series line is the ER11V – a high-performance mallet offering forgiveness and stability together with a clean, compact look. The frontal body portion is black anodized aluminum and features a ball-sized cavity directly behind the hitting area that also positions the putter’s mass outward and rearward for extremely high MOI. Stainless steel weights are positioned to the extreme rearward outer edges to further enhance MOI. Combining ultra-high MOI, V-Series hosel options and rearward, adjustable weighting, the ER11V is by far the most customizable putter ever offered by Evnroll.
The ER1V is a heel-toe weighted flange blade, while ER2V is a shorter, wider heel-toe weighted flange blade. ER5V is a winged mallet with a hatched out centre section. ER7V is a rear perimeter weighted full mallet, while ER8V is a midsized players’ mallet.
All Evnroll putters are CNC milled and feature ‘Sweet Face Technology’ – a unique mill pattern engineered to deliver uniform performance across the entire face for increased accuracy.
MSRPs: Blade putters (ER1V / ER2V) – from £369/€425 (w/ TourTac grip); £379/€435 (w/ Gravity Grip); Mallet putters (ER5V/ ER7V/ ER8V/ ER11V) – from £389/€449 (w/ TourTac grip); £399/€459 (w/ Gravity Grip).
The new range of Midlock putters offers a more streamlined and simplified version of Evnroll’s Armlock Series.
As it eliminates the problem of overactive hands and wrists, Armlock has been made popular by a number of top players in recent years and has proven to be highly effective. However, due to issues around the cost of construction and the requirement for custom fitting to suit individual golfers, Armlock putters have not become a standard offering from most major manufacturers.
The key to the Midlock putter’s performance is in the patented grip design combined with a long slant neck hosel. The new Midlock grip features the deepest pistol dimension allowed by the USGA. By positioning the grip sideways, the deep pistol pushes the shaft angle away from the mid-forearm reducing the typical 9° of loft in an Armlock putter to just 4°; similar to a simple forward press. This comfortable setup allows for an effortless one-piece putting stroke with no moving parts.
Midlock putters are six inches longer than the length required for a conventional setup. The extra pistol section is the part that extends above the hands, so golfers that use a 34-inch standard putter would use a 40-inch Midlock putter.
Midlock is available in four models – one blade (ER2), two mallets (ER5 and ER8), and the high MOI ER11 mallet. Each putter comes with black shaft and paint fill, as well as the long slant neck hosel and Midlock grip. MSRPs: £399/€459.
Both ranges will be at retail in March. For more details, visit www.evnroll.com
