Cure RX3 Putter Review: You need to know
All Cure putters are CNC Milled in the USA. The RX3 has a 5.25” blade length which is definitely oversized, but it helps raise MOI to unimaginable levels in a traditional blade putter. Cure say the extra MOI improves stability, delivers unmatched forgiveness on mishits, which ultimately translates to better distance and directional consistency.
Cure RX3 Putter Review: We say
Blade putters very rarely boast of MOI performance because the narrow head shapes, just doesn’t lend themselves to improving the forgiveness of off centre hits. Traditional blade designs (like the Ping Anser or Scotty Cameron Newport) have an MOI about 4,000 g/cm2, which doesn’t go close to touching the sides of the RX3. When teamed up with a changeable weight kit and a couple of wrenches the RX3 can offer between 6900 – 14200 g/cm2, which is absolutely huge.
There’s also clever lie angle adjustability built into the hosel, which offers great potential to set up the RX3 to suit your own putting stance and style. The only downside is the RX3s massive head that barely resembles a putter. The head dwarfs the ball at address, and the face is so long it’s a full inch bigger than the size of a putting cup, which gives the putter an unnatural look.
Cure RX3 Putter Review: Verdict
You won’t find many blade putters that boast of MOI forgiveness, but we reckon you need to be a serious MOI junkie to give the RX3 a second look. If you can see past the appearance and convince yourself to let the massive MOI numbers and forgiveness do the talking, then it might be worth exploring further. For us we fell at the first hurdle, and struggled to see past the huge ungainly head.
