VOLVENDUM from the Latin word "rolling" for the new conception of the putter that comes from the study of physics of the putter and the ball rolling. The VOLVENDUM putters are handcrafted with utmost care in the selection and use of materials, carefully in balance and weights fitting to provide the player with a putter that fits to his characteristics and not vice versa.
VOLVENDUM, dal latino "rotolando", è realizzato a mano con la massima cura, selezionando accuratamente i materiali, il bilanciamento e la distribuzione del peso per fornire al giocatore un putter che si adatti alle sue caratteristiche personali e non viceversa.

" What a fantastic feeling putter! So 1 round down and I love the putter. Great feel. Still working on fine tuning the weight, but the stability is fantastic! On shorter putts feels like the putter just doesn’t want to twist offline.
Playing partners really liked the feel too - they just were concerned that it is not legal in the US - I showed them the R&A letter…
Think you have a winner here - we just need to get it in the hands of a few tour players. Thank again".
The ball rolls better
As shown before, the flat face putter has different points of contact with the ball and certainly below and above the ball mass center (CM); this implies that the forces acting on the ball will operate in the competition. In particular, the force below the ball mass center generates the back spin, observed in the first centimeters of motion, and, as long as the static friction does not exceed the skidding friction, the ball will not start to roll.
In the case of a putter with a round face, the impact point is a line so to eliminate the two competing and opposing forces and the ball will roll immediately without back spin.
