- Conventional putters chip the ball out of its depression with four to six degrees of loft
- Rife putters feature precisely milled and spaced grooves
- For a more consistent and accurate roll on every stroke with less loft
- With rollgroove technology the effects of grass grain on your ball are greatly reduced
- Designed to be "anchored" against the stomach of the player
With patented RollGroove technology, the mallet utilizes less loft than traditional putters, two percent as opposed to four to six percent, for a smooth forward roll. LieAlign technology allows you to self-adjust the putter to fit your unique set up position for more consistent results. As with all Rife putters the Barbados Belly is 100 percent milled and made out of 304 stainless steel. The Barbados putter comes with a magnetic clasp headcover.
Rife's Patented RollGroove Technology:
Conventional putters chip the ball out of its depression with four to six degrees of loft, creating a slight backspin until the ball hits the ground and the friction of the grass causes the ball to skip or skid before it begins its true forward roll. By contrast, Rife putters feature precisely milled and spaced grooves that grip, hold, and release the ball into an immediate forward roll, eliminating the skipping and skidding created by traditional putters, for a more consistent and accurate roll on every stroke with less loft (1.5 to two degrees compared to the four to six degrees of loft on a conventional putter). Without the grooves holding the ball through the depression, the ball would slide up the face (like it does with a traditional flat face putter) losing energy and creating very inconsistent distance control. With RollGroove Technology the effects of grass grain on your ball are greatly reduced because the ball is not skipping or skidding (high friction) but rolling immediately (low friction) so your ball will hold the line better and your reads will be truer.
LieAlign Fitting System:
The LieAlign Custom Fitting System helps golfers of all skill levels develop a more consistent and repeatable stroke path for more accurate hitting. Great golfers never change their setup position when putting because they know that you cannot have a consistent and repeatable stroke path if your spine angle, hand position, or ball position is changing from one putt to another. However, many amateur golfers struggle to get in a natural and athletic setup position because they do not have enough time to practice and their putter is not properly fitted to them. Not to mention, when it gets late in a round, golfers tend to start getting tired so their setup position changes without them even knowing it.
The LieAlign System offers a built-in feedback mechanism that uses a vertical notch to tell you when you are in the correct position every time you hit a putt. The LieAlign Bending tool adjusts the lie angle of your Two Bar Hybrid so each time you set up over the ball you see the full white line through the vertical notch, enabling you to adjust your Two Bar Hybrid to your natural setup position. This customized adjustment ensures that you are tension free at address, and within a single round of golf you will begin developing a more repeatable and natural stroke path. This will give you more confidence and allow you to make more putts than you ever thought possible.
