For a company that is relatively new to the putter world, Cure Putters has certainly been making their mark. They were recently recognized as “The Fastest Growing Putter on the Champions Tour”. Cure Putters is also a 2016 Golf Digest Hotlist Award Winner!
Now, Cure has added a couple of new models to their lineup, the Classic Series CX1 and CX2 putters. According to Jim Barfield, Vice President of Tour Operations for Cure Putters, “When we introduced the new Classic Series putters on the Champions Tour the week before the 3M Championship, the response was overwhelming and positive. The following week at the 3M, 7 of the 81 putters in play were Cure Putters. I’ve never seen a new putter create such a buzz among the players and be put into play so quickly. The Tour Players said they love the look, sound and roll of the new CX1 and CX2 putters. They’re taking the Champions Tour by storm!”
It’s not really that much of a surprise. Cure Putters has led the industry in delivering the Highest Moment of Inertia (MOI) in putters since launching in 2014 and the new Classic Series delivers the incredible stability and forgiveness of a High MOI mallet in a visually stunning, traditional blade style putter – albeit a rather large blade style putter. Cure doesn’t do anything small!
The difference between the two putters is that the back of the blade on the CX1 has a square shape to it, while the back of the blade on the CX2 is more rounded. Both are precision milled in the USA, 100% CNC milled aluminum to be exact, with a 5” blade length. Both putters are offered in an anodized black or platinum finish. So far it sounds like your average oversized putter right? And if that’s where it ended that would be true, but in fact, that’s just the beginning.
Cure Classic Series putters have a higher center of gravity, lower loft and deeper face that impacts the ball at the equator. This helps to deliver a superior roll – getting the ball rolling sooner and helping it stay on its intended line.
But what really makes this putter different are the tungsten weight inserts in the heel and toe of the putter blade along with 42g of weight adjustability using the 6 removable weights. For me, this isn’t a putter that I buy at the store and stick it in my golf bag. The CX1 and CX2 require a “tuning” process. After all, the CX1 has an adjustable weight range of 334 to 376 grams and the CX2 is a tad heavier and can be adjusted from 342 to 384 grams. The end result is a putter with a traditional look at address, and twice the MOI and stability of a typical blade putter. Unlike the CX line, you do not see any of the weights while you are standing over the ball, they are completely hidden.
With all of the weight – both adjustable and non-adjustable – being located in the head and the toe, Cure has virtually eliminated any head twisting on less than perfect putts. This will lead to a more consistent putting stroke and more putts holed on the first try. You can’t help but get the ball to the hole with any of the Cure putters.
The Cure putter is aimed at golfers who are set on improving their game, but want a more traditional looking putter than what the RX series offers. Its sole purpose is to help you make more putts.
Cure CX putters are available in both left and right orientations and in standard lengths with a retail price on the Cure website of $299.95. They also conform to all USGA rules.
