I was trying-out putters at my local Edwin Watts yesterday when I noticed within the sea of Odysseys a brand new 35" Rife RFX "Rival" putter. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to putters, but I knew the name "rife" and I knew it was supposed to be good so I picked it up and tried a few putts. I was blown away by how it felt off the face... like, it felt way better than anything I've felt before (putter-wise). Mind you, I am a putter neophyte, but when I turned the shaft to reveal the price tag I was very surprised to see it was retailing for $99. I decided to do a quick google search and discovered that the original god Guerin Rife is no longer involved with the company. A little more Google-fu revealed that the company went under in 2008 and was snapped-up by what appears to be a private equity firm... all red flags to me, but I don't know. Does anyone here own a newer Rife putter? Has anyone tested the RFX series? There is almost nothing on the internet about these putters so I'm not sure how to reconcile my experience. Here's the current lineup in case you're interested: http://rifegolf.com/rfxstore/
