CURE CLASSIC CX2
CATEGORY: Blade Putters
WE TESTED: 34", 35" lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Six removable screws allow you to adjust headweight between 342 and 384 grams.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Heel or toe contact won't lose much speed; solid strokes are rewarded with a true roll; testers are most impressed from short range -- six feet and in can be automatic.
FEEL: A surprisingly gentle giant at impact; center putts come off with a light ping, while mis-hits are slightly louder with a modicum of feedback; testers like that you can adjust the headweight to find your ideal feel.
LOOK: Screws in the back of the oversize head give it a high-tech look; testers are comfortable with both the satin finish and the non-glare black one; it has a milled face and simple, single sightline.
It might take time to adjust to the large head, and some testers never do; a few guys have a difficult time making consistent strokes; others expect more forgiveness out of the big guy.
BOTTOM LINE: The Cure CX2 is a forgiving putter that's blessedly easy to align. It will appeal to players who struggle with the short ones. Plus, the half-dozen weight ports in the rear of the club make it a real find for fiddlers who want to dial in an ideal feel.
