The TF2 Rating System
At That Fit Friend, I’ve formulated a rating system to compare different products within the same category to one another. This provides me with the means to give every single training shoe and piece of apparel their own respective ratings in a clean concise manner.
These ratings are designed to do two key things.
- Improve your user experience with the reviews I publish.
