TECH: EVNRoll putters have a new groove pattern which gives a progressive energy transfer, so putts hit offcentre roll virtually the same distance as pure hits.
WE SAY: Some will argue the ER7 is more mallet than MOI putter, but we reckon because there’s so much weight removed from inefficient areas it’s a great looking MOI design. The story behind the EVNRoll’s groove pattern is what separates it, though. The grooves are wider in the centre and narrower to the toe and heel, which designer Rife says regulates energy transfer, so off-centre hits travel just as far as on centre impacts. He also reckons just like a wood face that’s not flat, off-centre putts are geared back towards your target, too.
VERDICT: We can’t say for sure those grooves gear putts back on line, but we will admit to being really impressed with how putts interacted with the face and rolled across the green. All three testers loved the head’s simplicity, the overall weight (heavier than some) and the cracking oversized Winn grip, which sits really snugly in your hands.
