Just curious. The putter seems to be hugely popular (on Golfwrx) and universally acclaimed. So why did you get rid and what replaced it?

Haven't moved on from but did give the ER2 a long look picking out a putter earlier this year. REALLY liked the look, feel and how it rolled the ball but had one big issue to me.

The leading edge on the bottom of the putter has 1/8" ish rail that stickes out/above the rest of the bottom. For me, when I set the putter down it wobbled significantly enough to make it difficult for me to get the putter face square to my line consistently. Found this unusual as I don't see this on any other putter line, tried to understand the purpose and like this putter but couldn't.

For me at least- its the indian not the arrow. Haven't gotten rid of my ER2- but he's been in time out for a few weeks now. My stroke was all over the place and I put a center-shafted Ping Scottsdale TR Piper C back in play to help calm the stroke a bit which is helping.

I bought an er7.  The tech seems legit.  In the end for me I just couldn't seem to consistently repeat my putting stroke with it and therefore was extremely inconsistent with it.  It was 34" and not my normal 33.5", so I cut it down and put a ping man grip on the club, and that made the putter worse for me.  I think the weight is just too much for me.

I have went back to anser style putters.  Currently rotating between a Cameron Mil Spec and a Piretti Potenza.  I will keep looking for a quality mallet to replace the anser style, but so far the ketsch, tyne, and er7 have failed.

I tried to love the ER7 but just couldn't ever feel comfortable with it. The face grooves took all the energy from the impact and I felt like I was always hitting the ball way too hard to get it to the hole. This was especially true on slow greens.

This eventually got into my head because I never knew how hard to hit the ball.

The lack of feel at impact also made me feel like I never hit the putt solidly. Even good hits felt lacking in the feel department. Rife putters always felt great but I think the grooves are too thin in the middle of the Evnroll.

Gamed the ER2 for a few months, but just switched to a Scotty Newport 3.  The feel was fine, and I do think the face groove tech helped, but couldn’t get along with a 370g putter.  ER2 will be sold shortly.

It seems that for the low single digit handicappers and/or solid putters who make consistent middle face contact, they either don't need the benefit of the grooves, or find the feel/distance control off-putting due to the grooves. (no pun intended) Evnroll still has no presence on any of the tours...even the Champions Tour, with players who are more receptive to new technologies, and with less/no endorsement $ incentive to play particular products. Ping seems to have toned down the depth/size of the grooves with their TR faces as well.

Felt like a brick to me.  Too heavy and the face was too harsh.  Feedback sucked so my distance control suffered.
What replaced it?  I'm a HO and have about 80-90 putters.  I'd roll ANY of them over the ER2.

I had one on loan for a while.  There's a lot I liked about it, but in the end there were two main factors stopping me from continuing with it.

1.  To heavy
2.  No option to get rid of the sight line

Really wanted to like the ER2 but I wasn’t a fan of how heavy the head felt. I know they get great reviews but wasn’t for me.

This is a true addiction kids. I think there's a hotline somewhere for this level of ho-ing.

As for me.. I owned 4 Evnroll's... and I just don't get along with flange line. Need top line alignment and I find the new ER 9 to be gross looking, and the ER6 to just be too big and gaudy.

I have been using the ER 5 @ 34" for more that a year now, and it is definitely a pure rolling putter that is correctly weighted.

You have the remember to pair the head weight to the grip.  Evnroll uses a very heavy stock grip, and bump the head weight to balance (for a counterbalanced feel).  To ge in the "tour preferred" range of d4-d6, with a normal weight grip, you should target:

32"-385g
33"-370g
34"-355g

This is my opinion...

All you people that don't like Evnroll can just go to hell.....












Okay, that might have been a bit harsh.  I'm sorry.  

For me, I played a Scotty Cira 62 model 2 for many years.  It's like the opposite of a high MOI putter.  Now I'm in a ER5 - so its a different world and has taken some time.  The feel is indeed much different.  That being said, a good stroke with the ER5 produces a really tight roll for me and I feel that I can line up this putter much easier.  

It's staying in the bag.
