Guys who are gaming your putters in the mentioned putter styles ~ appreciate your feedback with regards to the following;

1. How did the switch come about?
2. Why did you adopt the particular putter model you're gaming ~ best, if you can list the putter model and if its face balanced or toe biased? If you have game more than 1 putter which is centre shafted, do indicate if they have an insert and how was feedback / contact at impact as compared to a putter with no insert?
3. Any improvement / significance after the change?
4. Are you right or left eye dominant with aiming when setting up over the ball?

Appreciate your attention on the above and valuable feedback in advance Smile

I went from center to a heel shafted mallet. Zen ZAC to a scotty golo. What prompted the switch... IBS but it also brought along improved putting stats and different putting grip

Just wondering ... do u guys setup or use a different stroke for different putters?

For me, I tend to play straight neck a bit further back in stance as compared to when I use a offset neck putter ... not really intentional ... just the result of a lot of experimentation with different putters of my putting mat ... found that adjusting the ball position slightly helped the putters (and the putting stroke) "feel" a bit more similar ...

However, I have never really brought all my putters to a practice green to see if that works on real grass

p.s. some people collect premium putters for display ... i collect other people's unwanted putters ... because ... well ... ummm ...

please refer to other thread about golf addiction

Hmmm.... interesting, it could be more of setup or address issue but since you experimented with them ~ it should be what your brain associates with. Maybe towkay of BFG has some answers for us if he's reading this....??

Hi Vinny
I use the positive putter which is Target Line Balanced - the makers claims its balanced to stay square to the target line ie from where the ball is to the pin. The one i bought happens to be centre shafted tho the makers claim even toe shafted or infact any putter can be Target Line balanced. I bought the putter off another bro here in GR for under S$100 about a year ago and it definitely has helped my putting in that it hits the ball straighter and has good feel.

This is an interesting site to determine the offset of your putter based on eye dominance.

Check it out and see if it works for you.
