Bought the ER1 and played with it for the first time yesterday. After averaging 34.2 putts per round the last two seasons I figured it couldn't hurt to change putters.  First round, 29 putts and zero 3 putts. Can't remember the last time that happened.

Anyone have any comparison pics of the ER5 to an odyssey 7? Just want to see size wise how it compares.
no comparison pics, but the tank is slightly bigger. My ER5 is slightly bigger than the early number 7 Odyssey models. Just the right size to my eye. Very good putter. Not changing it after 12 months now.

Forgive me for not reading through 27 pages of Evnroll putter dialogue, but the complete lack of tour usage of this putter (on any tour) is a bit of an indictment. Spare me the "pay to play" glibness--if this putter was the shizzle, it would be on tour, end of. So explain to me how a putter of such apparent quality and accuracy cannot be found in any notable professional golfer's bag. Not an Evnroll hater here either, just curious.

I don't understood why "use on the PGA tour" should be a factor when deciding on what equipment an amateur golfer should consider.  Case in point, the Mizuno JPX 900 driver. Zero tour use and set somehow lots of us still manage to hit the hell out of the thing... must be some sort of gap in the space time continuum because obviously it isn't a very good driver if no one on the tour is using it.  

I'm still on the fence whether to switch to an EvnRoll but it has nothing to do with seeing one on tour.

P.S. Not many Byron Morgan putters on tour either. Does that mean Byron doesn't build great putters?

Love my ER2... could care less that no one on tour uses one (actually kind of like the mystery of it)... definitely worth a demo if you can get your hands on one.

They are trying to get a tour presence. I spoke to the local rep and he said Guerin had to get a full year under his belt to see if these were going to stick and what the reception would be in the regular market. He now has enough money to invest in a tour rep or two and will have them out full time next year. He's not going to pay anyone to play the putters but he will have them next to every green with someone to help the pros pick their best putter, have it adjusted and fitting to them. If you see them start gaining traction on tour, you can know it was because of this and it being the best putter for that particular player.

I get you. I don't base my purchases on what the pros play. It just seems odd that it has no presence as the reviews, from many sites and individuals have been glowing. Sure, I get it that "pay to play' is the norm, but there are so many exceptions out there-- Tour Edge, non-Ping players gaming Ping gear, non'TMag players with Spider Tours (OK, could be a putter only deal?) SeeMore (very little $, if any) etc. My point is that there are a lot of pros that play gear that they are not paid to play, and Evnroll isn't one of those brands, which is conspicuous when the putter is the most important stick in the bag. Pros would play a branding iron if they thought it would save strokes. I wonder if there is something about the putter that does not appeal to pros? Or perhaps it is just that Evnroll is too new and over time they will get some pro usage?

. The biggest thing I have noticed is the consistency on mishits the ball still gets to the hole.  Guessing the pros may not see much benefit since they hit it in the sweet spot 99% of the time.  I'll take all the help I can get.

Hard to say.  You hear stories of guys putting $50 putters into play so not everyone is gaming a $3,000 Cameron 009.  As the one guy said, they are just getting started and so may not have actually gained much notice on tour yet.

Personally I would look for them to show up on the senior tour first, I am guessing there is not as much sponsorship money on the line so they would be more likely to put something in play just because it works well for them.

Ian Poulter played a Rife blade several years ago and there were several Sr tour guys rolling Rife putters.

Pay to play is real. My jaw dropped when I found out TM pays non-contractual tour players $75,000 to play their driver.

I'll buck the trend here. Bought an Evnroll ER6 in red and hated it. Really can't explain why but I just didn't feel the love at all. I rolled the black one in store and really liked it.

The Red, well for whatever reason it never suited my eye and I disliked the look and feel of it from the off. I also thought the grip was horrible. Just too big and clumsy and the ridge to pronounced.

Crawford, long time no see. Good to see you are still playing.

I have had an ER1 for a year now, which is a personal best by some distance.. They're no substitute for technique but when you use them properly the roll is so pure.

You still @ WKGC?

no comparison pics, but the tank is slightly bigger. My ER5 is slightly bigger than the early number 7 Odyssey models. Just the right size to my eye. Very good putter. Not changing it after 12 months now.

Also has anybody talked with anybody at EVNROLL about if they'll release any models with more toe hang? I bought some putters about 3 months ago but returned them all because I was fit into about 45-60* of toe hang, I think the most any of the ER's have is 30 or so.

I'd be all over something in the 45* area, regardless of shape or looks. These things felt so nice off the face and I really do believe the technology works.

I'll buck the trend here. Bought an Evnroll ER6 in red and hated it. Really can't explain why but I just didn't feel the love at all. I rolled the black one in store and really liked it.

The Red, well for whatever reason it never suited my eye and I disliked the look and feel of it from the off. I also thought the grip was horrible. Just too big and clumsy and the ridge to pronounced.

Crawford, long time no see. Good to see you are still playing.

I have had an ER1 for a year now, which is a personal best by some distance.. They're no substitute for technique but when you use them properly the roll is so pure.

You still @ WKGC?

Dundonald now.

A million times better.

Drop me a message if you ever in the area.

Quick question...noticed some putters say the model number (eg ER5) and then the weight in grams right underneath. Others will say like 303ss/370g. Why do some just say the weight and others have something else. Is one an older version?

Noticed some don't even have the big block "ER5" on the bottom. Must be a version change. Which ones are newer though?  Pictures below...

I actually just spoke to Justin from Evnroll about this yesterday. The top picture if the first version of the ER5. More of a high pitched "ting" sound. The bottom picture, without "303 SS" is the newer version which has a more muted sound.

I actually have one of the first version models and am looking to trade it for another model if anyone is interested!

Forgive me for not reading through 27 pages of Evnroll putter dialogue, but the complete lack of tour usage of this putter (on any tour) is a bit of an indictment. Spare me the "pay to play" glibness--if this putter was the shizzle, it would be on tour, end of. So explain to me how a putter of such apparent quality and accuracy cannot be found in any notable professional golfer's bag. Not an Evnroll hater here either, just curious.

I don't understood why "use on the PGA tour" should be a factor when deciding on what equipment an amateur golfer should consider.  Case in point, the Mizuno JPX 900 driver. Zero tour use and set somehow lots of us still manage to hit the hell out of the thing... must be some sort of gap in the space time continuum because obviously it isn't a very good driver if no one on the tour is using it.  

I'm still on the fence whether to switch to an EvnRoll but it has nothing to do with seeing one on tour.

P.S. Not many Byron Morgan putters on tour either. Does that mean Byron doesn't build great putters?

I get you. I don't base my purchases on what the pros play. It just seems odd that it has no presence as the reviews, from many sites and individuals have been glowing. Sure, I get it that "pay to play' is the norm, but there are so many exceptions out there-- Tour Edge, non-Ping players gaming Ping gear, non'TMag players with Spider Tours (OK, could be a putter only deal?) SeeMore (very little $, if any) etc. My point is that there are a lot of pros that play gear that they are not paid to play, and Evnroll isn't one of those brands, which is conspicuous when the putter is the most important stick in the bag. Pros would play a branding iron if they thought it would save strokes. I wonder if there is something about the putter that does not appeal to pros? Or perhaps it is just that Evnroll is too new and over time they will get some pro usage?

No, pro's would NOT play a branding iron if it would save strokes.  You don't understand the mentality or how coddled they are but they believe their presence or time is worth money.

They are also very cliquey when it comes to equipment.  When the entire field has an 009 or something they're immediately more interested.

Every major OEM can make equipment that will work for any tour player...especially with club fitting vans and expert club builders onsite at every event.  The question is who is going to pay them the most and give them the most attention and publicity.  Honestly the biggest equipment decision is probably the golf ball...and even Bubba chased the money when he went to Volvik.

Awesome.  Thanks for the info.  So from what Justin told you, it's simply a sound adjustment?  Just ordered an older version and wondering if I should look for a newer one.  It's pretty stupid that the Evnroll website still shows the "original" 303ss model in the picture on the ER5 product page.

I picked up a ER-1 from a member here and the finish on the putter is outstanding and it sits beautifully at address.  The technology that is advertised I belive
delivers on the promise of rolling the ball pure off the face and corrects on heel and toe strikes. I took the putter to my course to get a feel for it on the putting green and it was a bit of a challenge controlling distance on longer putts. ( outside of 10 feet ).  I put it in the bag and played a round at Bulle Rock and managed to put pretty good with it however there were many occasions that I rolled the ball 6 foot or more past the hole.  This is a deal breaker for me and my Scotty Cameron Newport 2 is back in the bag after 1 round.  The Evnroll ER-1 does what's advertised but it's not for me.

Haha, giving up after what couldn’t be more than 50 total putts? If you want to stick with the Scotty, then by all means... but the ER2 took me a couple weeks to get used to it!

   The counter balance weighting and overall weight will make me completely change my putt stroke so yes....  Call me crazy.   I shot 80 and took 40 bucks from my buddies so don't get me wrong I think the putter is top quality.  I'm just not ready to get over every putt and stress about my distance control.

I hear you on the counter balancing part.  I'm looking at buying an ER5 but I'll probably put a regular weight grip on it.

   The ER-1 I purchased from another WRX member was a 35" with a 370 gram head with the red rubber Evnroll grip so I think it was a custom fitted putter since the 370 gram head is for a 34" putter.  I pulled the grip and found a counter weight plug in the shaft before i cut it down to 34" .

Before I took off an inch it was E-5 Swing weight now it's C7 ish
