INNOVEX/RIFE - Innovex Golf started out with one goal in mind - to design the holy grail of golf balls. After launching the new V-Motion Tour and E-Motion golf balls in 2011, and winning a Golf Digest Hot List Award, it became quickly apparent that they had achieved their goal. With the V-Motion and E-Motion golf balls from Innovex Golf, Extreme Performance meets Extreme Value. RIFE Putters is the true innovator behind horizontal grooved face putter technology with a patent on specifically sized grooves since 1997. These precisely spaced grooves allow the putter to gently press into the cover of the golf ball and grip and lift it into an instant forward roll. RIFE's Horizontal RollGrooveTM faced putters create the truest "no skid" roll in golf no matter where you hit the ball on the putter face.
