Those that have been golfing for as long as I have must have gone through a lot of putters. Let’s be honest, we all mishit shots especially on the green when you are trying to sink that birdie or save par. We do it and so do the pros. One putter company that has been sinking putts and making waves on the Champions Tour is Cure Putters. Cure prides themselves on being a manufacture of a putter than you can increase/decrease the MOI (Moment of Inertia) and weight of your putter with the simple change of some screws. A great example of this is the new Cure CX2 putter.
The Graph below displays the Moment of Inertia (MOI) of several popular Blades, Small Mallets, Large Mallets and High MOI Mallets, together with the Cure Classic Series and Cure RX Series Putters. Notice that the Cure Classic Series blades are as stable as most High MOI Mallets and far more stable than traditional blades, small and large mallets. The Cure RX Series putters are dramatically more stable than their competition and offer a tremendous range of weight adjustment.
The CX2 is blade style putter with a more traditional head with tons of MOI and adjustability. You cannot get around the size of the Cure CX2 compared to a typical putter head.
From Cure’s website
“The Cure Classic Series cx2 round back delivers the incredible stability and forgiveness of a High MOI mallet in a visually stunning, traditional blade style putter.
Precision milled in the USA, the cx2 is just slightly oversized (5” blade length) with tungsten weight inserts in the heel and toe, plus 42g of weight adjustability via 6 removable weights. With a higher center of gravity, lower loft and deeper face that impacts the ball at the equator, the cx2 deliver a superior roll - getting the ball rolling sooner, helping it stay on the intended line.
The cx2 combines the game improvement performance of a Higher MOI mallet with the simple, clean appearance of a blade - It’s the best of both worlds!
Available R /L handed in standard lengths.
Conforms to USGA Rules”
The moment I received this putter I noticed the pure weight of the putter was more than your typical blade style putter. You can adjust the overall weight of the putter with the simple removal of some screws on the back side of the putter. By adjusting the screws on the back side of the putter you can change the overall weight of the putter and the MOI as well. There are 4 different placements that you can do.
The tuning process of the CX2 will take some time to get the right feel that you need on the green by adjusting it. You can modify the CX2 from 342 grams up to 384 grams. At address, you don’t see the weights as they are hidden inside the back of the putter head.
Since playing with the CX2 putter, I found that the overall weight of the putter after I adjusted it to my swing felt effortless and smoother than my previous putter I gamed in my bag. There are a lot of manufactures out there that are jumping into the putter adjustability market. Cure has a lot going for them here with the CX2 putter. The ability to change both the weight and MOI sets them apart from all other manufactures.
Playing the first couple rounds, I had to get used to the MOI and how the ball was on fire off the face. The putter is well balanced and it took me a couple rounds to get the face under control. Not that I didn’t sink any putts with it. You can tell the high MOI in this putter when the ball fly’s off the face. Once I got used to the feeling, I was able to sink putts left and right.
Overall, the Cure CX2 is worth giving a try in your bag. The biggest thing for me is that I was able to adjust and play with the weights to get the perfect weight and feeling for me. Often time’s putters straight off the rack need some adjustments. The Cure CX2 offers so much more.
