The March 2016 issue of Golf Digest has hit the newsstands and its official...Cure Putters, "The Fastest Growing Putter on the Champions Tour" has made the prestigious Golf Digest Hot List. Cure's new Classic Series putters, the cx1 and cx2, have been honored in the "Blade" category.
The Golf Digest Hot List is derived from in-depth club testing that is administered by a Hot List Panel consisting of 36 Players, Scientists, Retailers, and Club Fitters, who this year reviewed hundreds of products and came up with what they refer to as the equipment that is most intriguing, and most significant for 2016.
Each product was rated and given points in several different categories including, Performance, Innovation, Look/Sound/Feel, and Demand. Cure's Classic Series putters received high marks in all categories tested including 4 ½ out of 5 stars for Innovation and 4 stars for Performance. Comments from the Editor of Golf Digest Magazine included, "With almost twice the resistance to twisting of your typical blade, these oversize and weighty blades are designed to eliminate torque and minimize face-angle variation. In short, the design keeps the clubface square and stable through impact. It's mallet like weight and blade like control make it unique." They went on to say, "Looks heavier than it feels...Easy to power it through the ball...Consistent distance control and performance."
"We are thrilled and honored to receive the Hot List Award from Golf Digest. We have worked very hard to bring golfers of all skill levels the very best in putter technology over the last two years and we've really come a long way. We have listened to player feedback and designed new putters with an improved look, sound and feel that offer real performance gains. From amateur golfers to Tour players, the results are in, and they are all putting better. This is a very exciting time in our company where we are seeing people all around the world believe in what we are doing at Cure Putters. This award validates all the hard work and pride our people have put into our products that, by the way, are made right here in the USA! On behalf of the Cure Putters team, I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the good folks at Golf Digest for including us in their consideration and we're very pleased to receive this award," said Jim McCarthy, CEO.
Cure Putters has led the industry in delivering the Highest Moment of Inertia (MOI) in putters since launching in 2014; the new Classic Series delivers the incredible stability and forgiveness of a High MOI mallet in a visually stunning, traditional blade style putter. It's the best of both worlds.
The initial launch of the Classic Series includes two new models: the cx1, a square back blade; and the cx2, a round back blade. These 100% CNC Milled aluminum putters are slightly oversized (5" blade length) with tungsten weight inserts in the heel and toe, plus 42g of weight adjustability via 6 removable weights, providing a simple, traditional look at address, with twice the MOI and stability of a typical blade!
The cx1 and cx2 putters are offered in an anodized black or platinum finish. The cx1 has an adjustable weight range from 334 to 376 grams; with MOI ranging from 6,400 to 7,200 g/cm2. The cx2 can be adjusted from 342 to 384 grams; with MOI ranging from 6,550 to 7,350 g/cm2.
Cure Putters are known for producing an incredibly smooth roll due a higher center of gravity, lower loft, and a deeper face that impacts the ball at the equator. This eliminates backspin and creates a lower, more consistent launch angle and quicker, tighter forward roll, helping the ball stay on the intended line.
