This blade putter, backed by a former PGA Tour commissioner, doesn't play at all like a blade putter

A year ago former PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman was at the PGA Merchandise Show extolling the virtues of Cure's RX putters and their "triangulation alignment system." It would have been easy to dismiss the product as another Hail Mary attempt in the golf business, but now the company has expanded its line to include the Cure RXi, with a technology story worth exploring.

Depending on whether you're using the aluminum or brass face insert, the putter's weight can vary from 345 grams to 410 grams, and the MOI can increase close to three times that of a traditional blade putter, helping to keep the club from twisting during the stroke and at impact.

Sounds like something Beman might have been happy to use during his playing career.
