    Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    Revolutionary design, seriously heavy & fully adjustable, including weight & lie angle. You can even convert from right to left handed.

    A mate of mine rang them & asked where he could get a fitting. They said nowhere near him but if he bought one & didn't like it he could return it for a refund within a month. They sent him two heads & a full weight kit & when another member expressed an interest they sent another weight kit & shaft.

    I had a go. Although it's very heavy it has an aircraft grade aluminium face which is very springy & pings loudly, softening the impact. You'd think, being heavy, the ball would shoot off the face but this is not the case. The high MOI is supposed to make it very difficult to swing in anything but a straight line.

    Two of us tried it but we're unconvinced. Our mate, who bought it says it revolutionised his game but, playing with us he missed a couple of 4 footers. As he said, it doesn't read the putts for you.

    Anyone got any experience of these putters?

    Sounds as though they could be tough to gauge pace with on long putts.

    Wouldn't fancy it on a downhill putt in summer

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    A fella at my club is the UK distributor of CURE. A putting coach who I've seen in Hull sells and swears by them. I've tried the CX3 which is the smaller of the range but it still looks like a house brick to me. But I got to say it does swing well and the feel off the face is really nice. But I can't get past the house brick.

    I think this is what Peter Finch has started using on his latest videos. Never used one but the one he has looks absolutely massive.

    I dont think hes putting as well with that compared to his previous putter.

    I bought one! They retail at 265. I got an EBay alert about one for sale, Buy it Now, for 90 & snapped it up. Don't know why it was so cheap, it's perfect & came with a full weight kit. It will have its first outing on Sunday. Watch this space!

    A fine price, interested in how you do.

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    First impressions:

    Went out yesterday & used it, without so much as a practice putt. First putt was a curly 6 footer which lipped out, almost perfect strength. I love the putter for short ones. My procedure for 3 footers & under with borrow is to putt high side , just inside the hole, & hit firmly. Sometimes I pull or push them, feeling that I don't have control of the putter. With the Cure it feels as if you can't do anything but swing it on the chosen line. I didn't miss one of these & that is quite unusual.

    You would have thought that, with all the weight, it's seriously heavy, it would be difficult to judge distance. This is not the case. In spite of the weight I found that the same length of swing to a conventional putter works. Coming off the blade there is a loud "ping" sound from the aircraft grade aluminium face & I guess that the 5" length of the blade allows it to flex more & the ball stays on the face a bit longer. Can't think of any other explanation, there's no dampening material included. A lot of long putts finished very close to the hole & I don't remember three putting more than once.

    An encouraging start. I'll persevere with it for sure. I think it may be difficult going back to a normally weighted putter after using this, it would feel like you had no control over it which, for me, is often the case with short putts.

    Here's a photo for those who haven't seen one. Someone said it looked like a pair of opera glasses on a stick.

    Looks odd but sounds right up my street. I use quite a heavy Odyssey as it is - hate lighter putters as I find them a bit wavy and hard to keep on line.

    Would be superb if you could hold it up and use as binoculars for ball spotting your partner's drives

    But seriously, whatever works for you
    If it feels nicely weighted and stable on short putts then it's all good especially as it's adjustable and for that price 👍
