PostSubject: Which putter to use???   Wed Aug 10, 2011 11:53 pm

ANy ladies can share with me which putter is a better buy. The Rife 2bar mallet or the odyssey 2 ball??

I need a putter thats very forgiving as im a newbie in golf.. but it tough to find reviews that compares both of them. Please share with me your experiences if you have tried either one.

Thanks.

I have used both of them before. Both are very good putter.
Forgiving - Rife is a level up
Look - 2 ball won in my opinion
Feel - 2 ball is better
Performance - Rife is the one!

I have a 2 ball! Very nice putter and I will probably hang on to this one till I die.
Feel is really good, easy to aim and the ball rolls from the beginning. The roll is for me one of the most important factors! I just went to a couple of stores and tried various putters "blind" so to speak. The 2 ball won for me on every aspect (besides price obviosuly).

Schulo, if you talk about roll, I think rife roll is better......

Want roll??? Get ZEN, without a doubt its rolls the best of the putters that is out on the market if you have a average or below average stroke. It was quite obvious when i change to the Ping PMU putter. Especially for long putts.

I am with Rife too. Cheaper alternative to Zen, same theory of grooves. As long as no inserts on the putter face. They tend to warp and deteriorate over time.

I like the 2 ball.. but I think the feel is very personal. If you have the opportunity can try the odyssey white ice saber tooth too. IMPO the feel is better and alignment I also feel it is better than the 2 ball. might be also cheaper too. saw at Golf Direct only 179 vs 2 ball at 219.

Agreed that rife is good but very underrated . Roll is one of the best and comparable to zen in terms of technology .

Tried 2 balls before but it does have many models. The one with steel insert feels better IMO .

Still rife better value n will opt for Rife.

Yes I loved Rife putter.

Heavy putter head + face balanced

plus roll grooves creates top spin easily
