Cure CX1 Putter Review
By Stuart Goldstein
When one thinks of Moment of Inertia (MOI) and adjustable weights for golf clubs the usual suspects come to mind: drivers, fairway woods even irons, but not for putters. For Cure putters, MOI and adjustable weights are just two of the reasons why Cure is one fastest growing putters on the Champions Tour, and for good reason. In fact, Jerry Kelly was the 2017 PGA Tour Champions rookie of the year-in large part to his success on the greens after his switch to a Cure CX1.
Cure putters has led the industry in creating the highest MOI in putters since its launch in 2014. But more than just a high MOI, Cure delivers on all the other attributes needed for a great putter: solid feel, a true roll, incredible stability, forgiveness and sound.
The Classic Series CX1, is made up of aircraft grade aluminum and is precision milled in the USA. Slightly oversized at 5”, the CX1 comes with tungsten weight inserts plus 42g of weight adjustability via 6 removable weights. It’s not often one gets a wrench for a putter, usually for a driver and a fairway wood, so type of adjustability is unheard of in the putter world.
With a higher center of gravity, lower lofts (2.5 degrees) and deeper face, the CX1 leads to greater stability and a dramatically improved roll-prerequisites for holing more puts.
Form follows function and at address the CX1 does appear bigger than other putters but not big enough to cause concern. Having a more square shape to it, the CX1 has the features of a mallet style design in the body of a blade putter-the best of both worlds. The unique design also hides all of the game improvement features, leaving only a simple sight line when addressing the ball. Bottom line is that backspin is eliminated earlier, the roll is true and putts stay on the intended line sooner and longer.
Cure putters are designed to hole more putts and they accomplish that and more. They come in a variety of styles and colors all to fit your eye and stroke. Starting at $279 Cure putters are available at leading golf retailers and green grass accounts. Cure also has a unique trade in program where they will accept anything from clubs to rangefinders and more. www.cureputters.com
