The lines on this putter are so clean. I couldn’t tell you if it’s the two-tone head, the standard single top sightline, the linear rear wing, or the two longer lines, but standing over this putter, there are so many ways to line up correctly it genuinely gives you the feeling you can’t miss.
The entire putter has a super high-end feel to it. A bit like going into a Louis Vuitton shop; you know every part of it is made from the highest quality materials, and you are getting the best possible product. My first impressions are very good.
As a blade putter die-hard, I don’t often get excited about mallet putters. Too big, too clunky, too face balanced, and often with giant grips mean I’ve not had many last long in my bag. Evnroll, however, allowed me the choice of head style, hosel style, alignment aids, and finish, which meant I was able to order a putter that really suits my eye and my putting style.
My initial feelings were brilliant, I find that often mallets feel closed to me, which emphasises the pull that upsets me greatly, but the Evnroll EV5.2 just sits so square and beautifully behind the ball. I love the line on the top of the head that runs directly into the ball.
Once we get past the aesthetics of the putter, the head is jam-packed with technology that might actually improve your game. Each of Evnroll’s putters have a milled 303 stainless steel head with its ‘sweet face technology’
Sweet face technology is what Evnroll have called their variable groove thickness technology, which means that putts from the heel and toe will roll the same distance to a putt hit out of the centre. This is a huge victory for golfers as they a) don’t practice their putting and b) don’t regularly hit the middle of the face as often as they believe.
I found that although the precision CNC milled 303 stainless steel face felt a little soft, after a few minutes of lag-putting practice, I grew to love the feel and don’t want to go back to a firmer-faced putter. It’s nice to feel like you can make a positive stroke.
I’ve had this putter in the bag now for a few rounds and absolutely love it. I love the stealthy black shaft and black grip. The parallel and perpendicular aiming aids are helping me hit my start lines a lot more often than before, and I feel like a robot inside 5 feet which is amazing.
The grooved hitting area makes you feel like the sweet spot of the putter is huge, so you don’t really think much about miss-hits. Evnroll have added loads of adjustable weights onto the bottom of the head so that it can be swing weighted perfectly to your desired feel in a fitting session, which is not something many brands can offer you.
You also have the ability to unscrew and fully remove the shaft and hosel out of the head and swap into a different configuration which would give you a different lie angle, face balance, and length in a matter of minutes.
If you’re a golf tech geek and are looking to swap out your flat stick for something new, or just looking to invest in a putter that will help your performance, you absolutely must give the Evnroll EV5.2 putter a go. It is a bit pricey at nearly £400, but it’s well worth the investment. The customisation alone is worth the cost; it really is a brilliant putter.
