Ball comes off on the slow side

This year has seen an expansion of the V-Series, within which the flagship model is the EV5 due to its ‘3x3 versatility’. This refers to the fact that it is available in various color combinations via three rear interchangeable chassis designs. There is even a choice of six hosel options too, so every visual preference and stroke type is truly catered for. 

The EV5 is undoubtedly one of the most forgiving putters around. Despite being a compact mallet, the head feels more stable than previous Evnroll putters of a similar size and helped by the special grooves on the face, we was able to knock putts often to within gimmie range from long distance and scare the hole frequently from 20 feet and in. 

For us, it was the EV5.2 model that performed the best, possibly due to that extra alignment help from the added sightlines, and is the one that we think will have the most universal appeal as one of the best golf putters. It's also the only shape available with the Midlock putting grip which makes implementing the Armlock putting method feel easier.

Ball comes off slower than most other putters

The ER2V, which is one of our top favorite models on the market right now. From a visual perspective, this putter really is excellent, with the wide blade shape setting up perfectly and sitting flush to the ground. It's a thick blade design that gives it a very forgiving look and we think this might be a great option for any player looking to transition from one of the best mallet putters to a blade putter.

Overall, the finish oozes sophistication and the long black sightline certainly helps. We also like the two dots at address as well, which helps with setting the correct lie angle.One thing to note is that golf balls, when struck off the face, come off a little slower on the ER2V than most other putters we’ve tested. 

This means that if the greens are slightly slower, or you prefer using a putter from off the green, then you may find yourself coming up short initially. However, this is only a minor detail that can be fixed quickly, especially as the consistency of the roll, along with how well this putter sets up, is the standout factor.

Visually complicated

The Evnroll Zero Putter has a lot going on, both visually and technically. The putter itself has a very quirky design that moves its weight out to its extremities to help improve its stability and reduce any head twist on any off-center hits. The club features four stainless steel weights in each corner of its sole, and also has a hole in its center, which increases the MOI of the club. 

The club also features Evnroll's Sweet Face Design that has variable grooves that create a much more consistent roll, ensuring there is no loss of energy on off-center hits. On impact, the putter feels great and produces a smooth roll on the ball. What's interesting is that the hosel of the putter is placed towards the rear of the club. 

This is what Evnroll call their FaceForward balancing, which aims to keep the putting path more consistent. This is a great club for those who need assistance with putter alignment, as it  features an excellent alignment tool on its back, which can help improve your focus on the golf ball and hit more accurate putting strokes. Because of this, it features in our most forgiving putters and best putters for high handicappers guide.

Pistol grip does seem large at the top

The brand describes this putter as 'Armlock made easy,' and we have to agree with that statement. This putter features a patented grip design that has the deepest pistol dimension allowed by the USGA. What this does is position the grip sideways, pushing the shaft angle away from the mid-forearm. That, therefore, reduces the typical nine degrees of loft to just four, which is similar to a simple forward press. By doing this, it should eliminate all wrist movement, but how did it test for us?

Well, we thoroughly enjoyed putting this putter and technology through its paces and it did seem to work for us. Certainly we believe it will benefit those golfers who have struggled with the yips before. The ER5v Midlock has a winged mallet design with a hatched-out middle section that is designed to spread the weight of the club head out to its extremities to improve its MOI. As a result of this, we found this putter to be very forgiving for those seeking more consistency, placing it firmly among the best armlock putters money can buy.

Sound is a little on hollow side

The extended version of the ER11v putter, the Evnroll ER11vx comprises of a large mallet head with additional 303 stainless steel weights in the rear corners of each side. This therefore increases the MOI further, making it more stable and forgiving on off-center hits. On the green, we found this putter to be a forgiving and very large head for a mallet putter. The thick white alignment line goes the full depth of the crown and draws your eyes to ensure that the putter is pointing where you want the ball to go. 

Like all Evnroll putters, there is a choice of hosel options, with the latest addition of a short slant hosel creating 15° of toe hang which, combined with the head that is made from black anodized 6061 aluminum, has one of the highest MOIs on the market. 

Evnroll ER10 Outback Putter

A forgiving putter that comes with great alignment tools

Specifications

Loft angle:
Lie angle: 70º
Stock shaft: FST stepless, .370” tip
Stock grip: Custom Evnroll TourTac grip
Length: 33"- 35"

Reasons to buy

+
Incredibly forgiving in terms of distance consistency and accuracy
+
Seems easy to square up naturally at address and impact.

Reasons to avoid

-
Slower than average speed off the face
-
Produces quite a dead feel

We end with the ER10 Outback, which is another model that is a few years old but still warrants inclusion on this list. Designed to offer forgiveness, it certainly has a large footprint at address.  The black front section is made from aluminum and the silver rear wing is made from stainless steel, which is very clever because your eyes focus on the black parts at address so it looks like a fang design and appears smaller than it actually is. 

This design also shifts a lot of the weight back away from the face to improve the stability and forgiveness. Off the face, thanks to Sweet Face Technology, there’s no denying that this is a very consistent and accurate putter that is really soft at impact. We found that it was a lovely feeling and it works brilliantly on fast greens. Overall, the Outback is a cleverly designed putter that makes it very easy to square the face at address and impact and, what's more, it rolls the ball with impressive consistency and accuracy.

How we test putters

When it comes to product testing, our reviews and buyers' guides are built upon a rigorous testing procedure as well as the knowledge and experience of the test team. We test putters outdoors on real greens with premium golf balls to get a thorough understanding of design features, feel, sound and looks.  Ultimately, we aim to be as insightful and honest as possible in our reviews so it is important to acknowledge that no manufacturer can buy a good review. This is because our team tells it how it is. To learn more on our methodology, see how Golf Monthly tests products in our guide. 

What to consider when buying a putter

When it comes to arguably the most important golf club in the bag, you need to think about what you want and what you like to use when it comes to the putter. A confidence-inspiring design that suits your eye and suits your stroke can save countless shots on the greens and a good flatstick is often a quick way of bringing the handicap down. So then what are the things you need to mull over before purchasing?

1. Head Design

As you have seen above, Evnroll putters come in a traditional blade, mid-mallet or a mallet design. All three styles have positives and negatives to them for every player. As the Zero and ER11vx designs show, mallet putters tend to be much larger than blades and they usually come in various shapes and sizes. This allows designers to redistribute weight around the head for stabilization and balance.

Mallets also tend to have larger sweet spots which helps those inconsistent strikers, and the size of the head usually means there are more alignment tools and aids on the head to help this facet of putting. A blade putter is a lot simpler in terms of design and will suit the traditionalists among you a lot more than some of the mallet putters pictured above. Blade putters also tend to suit players with an arc in their putting stroke because of the toe-weighted nature of the club-head.

2. Feel

Here, we're talking not just about the feel and sound the ball makes coming off the face, but how the putter feels in your hands. Given the technology used in Evnroll putters, we would definitely recommend getting the putters in your hands and hitting some putts with them before purchasing.

A quieter sound contributes to a softer feel, whereas a louder sound usually translates into a firmer feel. A firmer feel is often the product of shallow grooves or no grooves at all on the face, where sound can't be dissipated as effectively. They work better with softer feeling golf balls, where as soft-feeling putters work best with firmer golf balls. 

3. Looks

You should get a putter that you like the look of as the aesthetics can play a role in inspiring or diminishing confidence on the greens. Blades won't offer as much alignment assistance, but are still popular because of how they feel and the levels of forgiveness are increasing every year.

Mallet putters have more real estate, and can therefore provide more help to set the face squarely. Mid mallets are somewhere in the middle, offering a decent level of assistance without looking too cumbersome. As the models above have shown, Evnroll make models with lots of different shapes and sizes so get your hands on them to see how they look behind the ball and even in the bag. 

5. Adjustability 

You can get putters with adjustable weights in the sole that will alter the feel of the putter. For example, if your stroke is quite smooth and slow, a heavier putter will encourage that more. Jerky putters may prefer a lighter putter, although opting for more weight may reduce it, depending on what your goals are. The putter grip plays a huge roll in the confidence you feel with a putter. Get one that feels right and sits in your hands comfortably while allowing you to return the putter back to the ball squarely and consistently.
