Product Review: RadiusRoll F/P Tour Putter
Check out the RadiusRoll website or click HERE. Side-by-side comparisons of their product vs. a standard, lofted putter show up to 10 inches of skid upon striking the ball with a standard putter. The 0.8400" radius face with PureStrike Instant Roll Technology starts the ball rolling immediately. The radius of a golf ball also is 0.8400” - leading to a friction-free strike.
Putting is the partnership between speed and line. You may think you have both, but if skidding or hopping take you even a 1/4 inch off line, that could result in an error of 2 1/2 inches on a 10-foot putt, according to RadiusRoll.
We tested the RadiusRoll F/P Tour offset-hosel-style putter. The F/P Tour is precision CNC milled in the United States from soft carbon steel and features a black chrome finish. Like all the putters in the RadiusRoll arsenal, it features PureStrike Instant Roll Technology, which delivers instant forward roll on the golf ball - starting your putts on line and keeping them on line.
The RadiusRoll F/P Tour provides a soft, solid feel, putt after putt. We’ve tested dozens of putters and played many more over the years. Distance control has been a common theme when it comes to trouble. While user error can always be blamed, inconsistent feel is too often a concern. From short putts to long putts, the feel remains the same with the F/P Tour.

Putting is a very individual component of the game and the feelings about loft will surely continue to be debated. Whichever side you lean toward, know this ... The RadiusRoll F/P Tour putter with PureStrike Instant Roll Technology will get your ball rolling on line upon contact, while an inherent skid or hop is expected with common putters.
