So I finally found a blade styled anser/ Newport putter that suits me well and it's the evnroll er 1.2 ,I played it one round and I just seemed to make more Birdie's with it than anything I had 3 Birdie's that were over 10 feet ,one was 20 that I usually miss or come close but then i made many par putts within that dreaded 5 ft range, now to my quest to make it black lol I played two rounds before u sent it off,lol

So I've always gravitated towards the black putters at the stores, they just look better to my eye but the evnroll didn't come in black so being a I go all in guy I had to find a black finish that would not change the feel and last and not wear off, something like that cobra forged black dbm finish

So I looked into black oxide, torching, Caswell blackener and they all have something I did not like about them whether it was too thick or wore off fast etc.

I'm a watchsmith and I have done pvd and dlc coatings to make watches like panerai and quite a few Rolex subs/gmt look like tool watches, but back then pvd would wear easily which is the look that many of my customers wanted and it didn't change anything enough in the metal so I could put it back together easily but the dlc was much stronger but also thicker so tighter bezels in watches would not go back on so we didn't use it that much  

so i contacted the company and discussed options for my putter and I was wowed that they actually have a  "layered dlc" that was stronger than what I've seen before which was really tough and it is also now thinner than what I've used in the past here is what I was told

Layered DLC is as hard and even harder in some cases than natural diamond
The dlc problems in the past was how it would stick to the metal but this problem was solved by the use of multilayer coating, it is also used alot in camshafts in high powered engines

So I was like when can I send it to you, lol he said send it now and check it out I was like how much? He said just pay the shipping you have always been a good customer to us consider it a favor, but I had to do the other work which was removed the shaft and remove the paint fill

So it began last week and I got it back today, it looks awesome,I will send after pictures when I take them later onPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Looks great if you ask me BUT would also look great with a black paintfill. I Would probably go that route.

Thanks, Yep I agree, I already ordered me a black shaft from golf works and there leather black grips, been wanting to try them, I guess it's a good time, fortunately gw carries the same putter shaft in black that was in my putter so the feel I love should stay the same

You know, you'd think black paint fill on a black head wouldn't make a difference...but it totally does. Every time I've done it, the results are way better than leaving it naked. Looks sick, great putter!
