After testing it out on the course, we give our verdict on the Evnroll ER8v mallet putter
Evnroll ER8v Putter Review
There have never been more options when it comes to the flatstick, which is just as well because it's such an important aspect of the game.
That sounds obvious to say, but golfers underestimate how much of an impact putting can have on the rest of your game. If you are confident on the greens, it can really free you up tee-to-green.
In a short space of time, Evnroll has quickly become known for producing some of the best putters on the market and we recently put a model from its new V-Series, the ER8v, to the test.
How we tested the Evnroll ER8v putter?
We first got our hands on the Evnroll ER8v ahead of a round at Essendon Golf Club. At a course we'd never played before using a new putter, the odds weren't stacked in our favour. However, there's no doubt it excelled.
We’ve since had it out on Royal Troon on a number of occasions as we wrestle with the idea of putting it in the bag permanently. This has allowed us to form an in-depth opinion based on factors such as looks, feel, quality of roll, balance and value.
Evnroll ER8v putter: Our results
Although we tend to favour blade putters, the look of the square-back design proved really appealing. As well as the shape, the classy silver satin finish and black alignment line made us feel confident over every putt.
Even on greens that varied in terms of slope and smoothness, we holed more than our fair share compared to playing partners.

This is also thanks, in no small part, to the feel off the CNC-milled face. It’s on the soft side, which allowed us to be a little more aggressive and made it easy to judge the pace on longer putts. Additionally, the grooves in the centre meant it was easy to get the ball rolling early and minimise the effects of bumpy surfaces.
Moving away from the head, another aspect of this putter that made it enjoyable to test and difficult to ignore as a permanent addition to the bag, was the balance. In making its V-series, which consists of six different head shapes that each come with four hosel options, Evnroll used a Quintic Ball Roll putting analysis system to fit each unique model to different grip weights and shaft options.
The reason for this is to ensure that each golfer is able to optimise the offset and toe hang that matches their stroke arc.

We used the 35-inch model and found that to be the perfect set-up, but for those who prefer something a little shorter, it is also available in 33 and 34 inches. And from the four hosel options available - short and long slant, and short and long plumber necks - we had the short plumber neck. For anyone with a slight arc to their stroke, like us, this is ideal.
At the top end, the 90-gram Evnroll TourTac white grip was excellent. Thick enough to take the hands out of the stroke somewhat, but not too thick that it was uncomfortable
And to top it off, golfers keen to go down this route and who know their specs, can take advantage of the wide variety of custom options available when it comes to the shaft, lie angle and grip. Admittedly on the expensive side, there’s no denying the quality on offer.

A lifelong golf fan, Andy graduated in 2019 with a degree in Sports Journalism and got his first role in the industry as the Instruction Editor for National Club Golfer. From there, he went on to enjoy a spell freelancing for Stats Perform producing football reports, and then for RacingNews365 covering Formula 1. However, he couldn't turn down the opportunity to get back into the sport he grew up watching and playing and now covers a mixture of equipment, instruction and news for Golf Monthly's website and print title.
Andy took up the game at the age of seven and even harboured ambitions of a career in the professional ranks for a spell. That didn’t pan out, but he still enjoys his weekend golf at Royal Troon and holds a scratch handicap. As a side note, he's made five holes-in-one and could quite possibly be Retief Goosen’s biggest fan.
As well as the above, some of Andy's work has featured on websites such as goal.com, dailyrecord.co.uk, and theopen.com.
