Paul is very helpful and I could be persuaded to demo the RX3 and 4 to anyone in the Northumberland/Durham region
    You turned me on, Mr. Hip & I'll be eternally grateful.

    I’ve had a look at them, bought an evnroll instead, I couldn’t find anywhere to try them.

    They may be magic wands but they sure is ugly !!
    I said "expect to". I miss most of them but never by very much. Read the putt correctly & it usually goes in. Think I've missed one 4 footer since I got it. Used to miss loads from 2 feet & less.

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    My RX3 arrived today, clearly never been raced or done a track day !

    Unfortunately my senior manager didn't buy particularly putt friendly, upstairs carpets, and wood flooring downstairs is probably 92 on the stimp meter. Must dash to the course tomorrow to test it out!

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    It finally happened, I hit one off line - & how! Had a 25 foot putt on our 13th. Read it correctly, about 4"left of hole. An opponent's ball was ahead of me, to the right of my line. "No need to mark it", I said, then proceed to hit the putt 3 feet off line to the right of the opponent's ball. In the words of Chris Kamara "unbelievable!". I'd been putting well up to that point & putted well afterwards. Can't explain what happened, except that my mind may have wandered as I was putting. Or maybe it buggered off completely.

    I've currently got one putter on EBay & another going on today. No going back now.

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    On the strength of this thread I too bought an RX3 off eBay during the 20% off period and paid £89 for it. Well it is big and ugly but it does roll the ball well and after only the second time on course, I've just had a PB round off our back tees which included 4 birdies and they mainly came due to my putts dropping.
    So I can only agree that although they are not the prettiest things to look at they get the job done perhaps better than what you have used before.

    Congrats on the PB. For me, the putter has to look good behind the ball and these don't for me sadly so I wouldn't want one. If it works for you that's all the matters Good bargain too

    Look good - miss 2 makeable putts a round

    Look awful - make 2 extra putts a round

    Would you use one Homer?

    Homer wouldn’t use them, remember the saga with his g25s, that were too chunky to chip with, they didn’t suit his eye. He’s all about the aesthetics!!!
    He is right though, they’re fugy, should have got an evnroll!!!
