Cure Putters RX3 Review

The Cure RX3 putter provides unparalleled forgiveness and adjustability.  Literally the most forgiving putter available.

Introduction

Forgiveness and adjustability are two areas where putters, and golf clubs in general, have made the biggest strides.  It’s now as common as not for a putter to have adjustable weight, and some even have adjustable length.  When it comes to forgiveness, the use of different materials and space-age designs allow mishits to perform more like pure strikes.

If you’ve been impressed with what you’ve seen from the golf industry so far, buckle up, because Cure Putters is taking both forgiveness and adjustability to places we’ve never seen before.

Looks

Creating unbelievable levels of forgiveness requires outside-the-box thinking when it comes to design.  As such, the Cure Putters do not look like your garden variety Ansers and Zings.  Each putter in the Cure line up (except the RXi) has the U shape that you see above.  The RX3 is slightly smaller from heel-to-toe, 5.25″, whereas the RX1 and RX2 are 6″.  Another difference between the RX3 and the others is that it is only available in black; the other two models come in a rainbow of colors.

Cure refers to the alignment system on the RX3 as “Triangulation Alignment.”  The golf ball and the two silver circles on the edges of the putter create a triangle or arrow that many players find easier to aim than traditional lines.  As someone who doesn’t like sight lines on his putters, I think this approach is preferable.

The reason for the inclusion of two pictures above is to show how the look changes when you add more weight.  On the left, you see the putter with all the weights added.  On the right, the putter only has the lighter aluminum weights.

Sound & Feel

Each Cure Putter is made from aircraft-grade aluminum which creates a unique sound and feel.   When the putter is unweighted, it sounds fairly traditional, a sound I would describe as a soft “thock.”  When you get all of the weights loaded on, the sound changes completely to a louder, hollow-sounding “pong.”  What’s interesting is that the level of auditory feedback also changes with the weights.  When the putter is lightest, mishits sound very similar to pure strikes.  When the putter is heaviest, toe and heel strikes are much quieter than centered ones.

When it comes to feel, there is very little with the Cure RX3.  The putter has so much mass that striking the ball is barely noticeable.  Even at its lightest, the RX3 barely twists on mishits.

Performance

Where other putters dip their toes in the pool of adjustability, the Cure Putters do a cannonball.  Forget adding 10 grams of weight – the RX3 can be set anywhere from 364 to 575 grams!  This obviously makes a massive difference in the way the club feels and how it performs.  Keep in mind that even at its lowest weight, the RX3 is on the upper end of the weight range for modern putters, so if you prefer a truly light putter, this isn’t for you.  For players that use more weight to steady their hands, however, these putters will live up to their name.

Adding weight to the Cure Putters doesn’t just make them heavier, it also makes them more forgiving.  You can see in the picture above that the putter comes with a chart showing just how much difference the weight makes.  In the RX3, the MOI (Moment of Inertia) starts at 6,700 and goes all the way to an astounding 12,800.  The RX1 and RX2 top out even higher, 18,600 and 19,000, respectively.  In simple terms, this putter starts out with loads of forgiveness and can end up being downright ridiculous.  When you mishit a putt with the Cure Putter, it stays on line and gets to the hole.  I found that this is great for short putts, but truly important on long putts where a mishit lag can quickly turn into a three putt.

Weight is not the only adjustability that the Cure Putters have – you can also adjust the lie.  The shaft can be set anywhere from 62 to 80 degrees meaning that it can fit any golfer regardless of height or posture with the turn of a couple screws.  With the right lie, the right weight, and maximum forgiveness, the Cure leaves you with few excuses on the green.

Conclusion

If you need more forgiveness or more weight in your putter, I’d strongly recommend giving Cure Putters a try.  Not only are they helping average golfers to have more success on the greens, they’re also in play on the Champions Tour.

  1. I’m looking at the Cure RX3F putter. Do u recommend a straight shaft or offset?
    I like to think I take the putter back & straight through. The worst part of my game is putting. Im an 18.1 HC at my best but average 20.
    Any suggestions would be great

      Ruby,

      The best suggestion I can give it to get a fitting. Often what we think we’re doing and what we’re actually doing are two very different things.

      Best,

      Matt

  2. If you are right eye dominant go with the offset shaft. Left eye dominant go with the straight shaft. People who are right eye dominant see the line better with an offset putter.
    Cheers

  3. I just purchased the RX3 Cure putter 3 weeks ago and have played 5 times a week and I am impressed. I used to pull my putts and with the weight of the putter it works like a pendulum and seems to correct the push or pull motion that a person has. It just seems like it is going to work very well for me. Weights can be added or removed from the putter that gives you a choice of what you are comfortable with in your swing. All I can say is I like it.

    I purchased a RX3 putter last year I started with all the weights on the putter, as I played I started to adjust the weight to where I felt comfortable and confident in my putting. Right now I am at 2 -1/8 oz stainless steel and 2- 1/8 aluminum weights and this seems to work well for me. That is not saying this is best for everyone but the adjustment feature is definite a great feature on this putter any other questions please ask
