Rife Putters has unveiled its new Tropical range, giving the Tour proven putters a unique and colourful finish that will appeal to anyone with an eye for beauty.

Over the past four years Rife Putters have become associated with quality, technology and innovation, blended to produce putters that the best players in the world take on Tour. With over 30 Tour victories in that time, the quality and roll of Rife Putters has consistently produced results.

In addition to purely technical innovations, such as their patented RollGroove technology, Rife has produced a special optical finish for their Tropical range that is truly unique.

Using a system of vacuum Ti plating, Rife has put a ‘Rainbow Finish’ on three of its most technologically advanced and successful putters, providing a product that is not matched anywhere on the market. Along with the aesthetic benefit, this process also increases the putters’ resistance to wear and prevents oxidisation over time.

Jim Barfield, Chairman of Rife Putters commented, “Rife has created many innovative and new designs. With the addition of this new and exciting finish it enhances the designs already established as putters the public truly enjoys using on the Golf course. We made these tropical putters look like exclusive collectors items but they are available to all the public.”

The Rife Tropical Putter range - from l to r: Cayman Brac, Bimini and Abaco

The Tropical Series comprises:

The Bimini: This is a Guerin Rife version of the classic 8802 made famous by Arnold Palmer. A classic blade with subtle variations that make it a Rife. A purists’ putter, the Bimini rubber stamps Rife’s design credentials. There is a slight raised toe and Rife’s patented RollGroove Face Technology. But unlike every other putter Rife make, the Bimini does not have the vertical notch on the back edge of the top line. Rife wanted to be certain that this one was a putter design for the true traditionalist to go with the beautiful Rainbow finish. MSRP: £149.99

The Abaco: Inspired by one of Guerin Rife’s first designs – this is a no hosel, ‘Anser’ style 400 mid mallet, designed with the tour player in mind. Complete with Rife’s RollGroove face technology and Lie-Aline custom fitting system the Tropical Abaco offers all of Rife’s most admired technologies. MSRP: £149.99

The Cayman Brac: This putter takes a traditional look and adds a typically Rife dimension. From a design standpoint the Cayman Brac features a slant back design and raised top line toward the toe. Its mid-slant hosel produces a toe-ward weight bias promoting an open to close swing path. The Tropical Cayman Brac also features Rife's patented RollGroove face technology and Lie-Aline custom fitting system giving it looks and feel of the highest quality. MSRP: £149.99
