Hi all,

I have a question that some of you can maybe shed some light on for me. Are the original Two Bar models with a black finish at all rare? Does this finish have a certain name like "Tour Black" or was this just an an additional option from Rife after the Dana Quigley model. Any information you guys have would be great. Thanks!

    TH, the original 2 Bar Blade/Mallet putters from production had the blue/gray finish. The Dana and Tour Blade had a black finish. Last year mid year the 2 Bar Mallet production changed to black and was an instant hit.

    The new Tour Hybid Mallet and Tour Hybrid Blade are black finish with insert milled aluminum blue faces.

    The black finish has found its way onto the Barbados, Aussie Blade and Aussie Mallet as well.

    Sorry PD , I'm going to take it back a little farther . Our original colors for the 2 Bar were Silver , Black , and Burgandy . We all loved the silver but they varied in shade so we discontinued them . The Burgandy we used for Japan Retail and the Black was our original Retail color . Then we started the process of doing the infomercial and decided that black did not do well for TV so the Blue Grey finish became the retail and we used the Black for the Tour .
