TECH: EVNRoll put­ters have a brand new face milling pat­tern which in­ven­tor Guerin Rife says gives a pro­gres­sive en­ergy trans­fer. To me and you, that means putts hit of­f­cen­tre roll vir­tu­ally the same

dis­tance as cen­tre hits.

WE SAY: EVNRoll only started up last year, yet Guerin Rife has been de­sign­ing put­ters for 25 years. So it’s fair to say there’s a ton of ex­pe­ri­ence rolled into his new con­cept. The big story is the spe­cially-shaped face grooves, and we’ll hap­pily ad­mit to feel­ing a real en­gage­ment be­tween ball and face at im­pact. The ER2 had the widest head of the blades tested, so

MOI and for­give­ness should be slightly en­hanced over most models, and that cer­tainly played out with the amount of putts we holed.

VER­DICT: We’re not go­ing to go quite as far as say­ing the ER2’s clever face grooves ‘gear’ off-cen­tre putts back on­line, as EVNRoll claims. But we were very im­pressed by the tech, so much so the gear ed­i­tor put one in play.
