I'd honestly play any of those Bobby Grace putters before any of those Rife ones. Those Rifes are hideous IMHO

Rife coming strong with thoughtful innovation in my opinion.  But then again, I think my Method Concept is a good looking putter as well.  I'll look forward to rolling the Prodigy and Legend and Hero putters.

There's something a little off about the Rifes, but you'd bag the F-22 or Triumph before the Iconic? Okly dokly.

With all due respect to Rife, how can they honestly think that some of those putters will have significant sales and be a success?

Agree, it looks like the went to the extreme to be different just for the sake of being different. Not really fond of many of those designs.

RIFE  is killing it at a time were it seems most golf companies are making very very small changes to equipment year over year asking consumers to be excited about the same old soup just re heated  RIFE is bringing something new I LOVE IT !!!! However with a Scotty notch back and a ping asner milled putter already I doubt I will be investing in any more 300.00 putters !

What's going on with Rife?  I don't understand any of the designs, and if I'm being completely honest, those putters look kind of cheap to me.

Sorry to say, but the Rife putters look worse than cheap knockoffs. I actually like their older putters a lot. Bummer.
