Just strip the honey dip finish with naval jelly, and you'll have a beautiful stainless steel Scotty Cameron putter.  Costs a couple of bucks, and takes 10 minutes.  Just my .02 cents.
Lots of stuff written about Rife putters around the web, but they are very highly regarded putters.  I recently picked up a used Barbados heel shafted putter, and really love it.  I have some other nice putters, but the Barbados just feels "right" to me.  I recently came across a used 2 bar hybrid mallet, and a used original 2 bar straight shafted mallet, for great prices, and picked those up as well.  There are not that many Rifes out there for lefties, so I figured I...
Paddy, I was really taking sales, not performance, but I am speculating as to any of those.  I can only say this.  From being on this and other golf sites, I can unscientifically draw several conclusions based on trends.  Like, the G15 irons and the G15 driver are some of the most raved about irons and drivers, respectively, that I can recall reading about.  That the G15 and K15 woods are very popular.  Frequent and almost universal praise for all of those.  And...
I suspect that the G15 and K15 hybrids have been rare disappointments for Ping.  Their irons, drivers and fairway woods have been awesome lately.  I love the K15 driver, and K15 3 wood and G15 4 wood.  But I just do not like the G15/K15 hybrids.  I went with the original Rapture hybrids, and they are outstanding.  If not the Raptures, I would have gone with the G10's.  Those two models are classic looking, forgiving and hot hybrids.  
First of all, that looks like a Rapture V2 (not an original Rapture) that Louie is using.  Second of all, having owned G10 and G15 drivers, and currently owning and playing an original Rapture and K15 drivers, they are all oustanding in their own right, such that I can't see playing one over the other being a "condemnation" of any of them.  And the Rapture V2, the only one I haven't owned, gets raves as well.  They're all outstanding, but the pros can get attached to...
Yep, G15 4 wood is amazing.  If I can't hit a fairway wood off the deck, which was the case for me all the time with fairway woods prior to the G15, it's useless to me.  Only cause I can't leave well enough alone, I've been trying out a K15 3 wood as an alternative to the G15 4 wood, but I can't decide which one I like better.  K15 is longer off the tee, but I don't seem to hit it as consistently as the G15 4 wood.  Both are outstanding clubs though, and I really don't...
5 for me.  Odyssey Backstryke Marxman currently first string.  Then a White Ice Sabretooth 2, Cleveland Classic Platinum #4, Cameron Studio Select Newport 2, and a 2010 TM Kia Ma Daytona on the way cheap from globalgolf.  
Good luck--hope it works out for you.  The FT-IQ is a nice driver.

It's a big, chunky forgiving wedge, kind of like going with a SW and LW from a GI/SGI iron set (Ping G series for example).  You'll gain forgiviness, and lose finesse as compared to a more traditional wedge like a Cleveland CG or Titleist Vokey.  Different strokes for different folks.  I've gotten rid of my Sure Out and other SGI wedges in favor of more traditional wedges, but that's my personal taste.  And I do keep a full set of Ping iWedges around, which are sort of...
