'The Sweetest Face in Golf' - Evnroll ER Putters, first unveiled at last year’s PGA Merchandise show, will soon be available to buy in the UK.
Five years in the making, the new Evnroll ER Putters are the brainchild of renowned putter designer Guerin Rife.
The line consists of four new head designs each precision milled in Carlsbad, California, featuring an innovative face mill pattern that delivers uniform performance across the entire putter face for unprecedented accuracy.
Evnroll’s groundbreaking technology, found in every putter model, is set to revolutionise putting by eliminating miss-hits and expanding the ‘sweetspot’ into the ‘Sweetest Face in Golf’.
“This is by far the most exciting technology I have ever brought to market,” commented Rife, the man who first introduced grooves to putters 20 years ago.
“Hitting a straight putt isn’t easy. On a 25 foot putt, a ball hit just half an inch off-centre will travel about 6 inches off line and 5% short. That slight miss-hit is a missed putt,” said Rife.
The putters feature a revolutionary mill pattern across the face that works to progressively replace the energy loss on miss-hits, meaning that off-centre hits will roll virtually the same distance as centre hits. On top of this, the unique milling pattern also helps gear the ball back to the centre.
“The Precise face milling on each Evnroll ER Putter imparts progressively more energy transfer on off-centre hits to roll the ball a consistent distance with every stroke. So with an Evnroll putter golfers can roll centre and off-centre putts the same distance to the same spot,” explained Rife.
Evnroll ER Putters will be available in four head designs. From the classic style of the heel-and-toe ER1 (above) and ER2 blades, to the ER5 Hatchback mallet and the deep red centre-weighted ER6 iRoll full mallet (both below), each putter head is precision CNC-milled, then hand-ground, finished and assembled to exact specifications.
Each design also includes the new LineAline technology, which features two small, unpainted dots on the topline 1/8 inch each side of the centre cavity sightline.
“This provides the golfer a subtle alignment reference for consistent lie angle positioning, while also helping with alignment on breaking putts,” added Rife. “Aligning the ball in front of the toe-side dot on right-to-left putts and in front of the heel-side dot on left-to-right putts will help keep the ball travelling on the high side of the target line as 90% of breaking putts are missed below the hole.”
Evnroll ER putters will be available from April 2016. Each putter is available in 33”, 34” and 35” lengths. The ER1 and ER2 models will retail at £249 and the ER5 and ER6 will retail at £275.
