Rife's most successful putter gets the 'Rainbow' treatment January 5, 2012
The Rife Barbados is receiving the unique ‘Rainbow’ finish as it joins the Tropical range of putters in 2012.
Rife’s most successful putter on Tour, the oversized mallet Rife Barbados has a pleasing shape wrapped around a three line center cavity section creating a strong alignment aid. The mass of the putter is concentrated around the outer edges for high MOI, making the Barbados extremely stable.
With RollGroove face technology for a quick, true roll and the Lie Aline custom fitting system, the Barbados already benefited from Rife’s unique technology. With the addition of the ‘Rainbow’ finish, each putter becomes one of a kind, thanks to the Ti plating system used to create the finish, which gives a unique result every time. Along with the aesthetic benefit, the process also increases the putters’ resistance to wear and prevents oxidization over time
The Rife Barbados has an eviable record since it was in the bag of the winner of the 2007 European Tour Order of Merit [Justin Rose]. Since then it has been in the bag of the 2010 PGA Tour money list winner [Matt Kuchar], the winners of numerous PGA and European Tour events, the winners of LET and LPGA events and the winner of a senior major.
The Rife Tropical Range: from l to r - Cayman Brac, Bimini, Abaco and Barbados
The Barbados joins 2011's releases the Abaco, the Bimini and the Cayman Brac and is the first of Rife's additions to the Tropical series for 2012, with further models planned for later in the year due to the success of the line.
