    Is it some bad rounds? Something new comes out? Certain shapes or styles?

    usually it's shape. Visually a putter has to catch my eye for me to even try it.

    For me it's a feeling. A complete lack of confidence that grows from a lingering inability to make a straight 3 footer. I'll change putters until something clicks again and then ride that out until ineptitude strikes again.

    I think first it's visual in nature. Then, will decide whether it feels good or not. Then look at the price tag.

    When one goes cold I rotate to another. I know it is not the putter but sometimes a change in head shape, weight or offset does the trick.

    A slump resulting in lack of confidence when standing over short putts. Then on to something else.

    Recent trip to the PGA Superstore made me change. Was no way in the market for a new putter, but my car had been parked there and I rode with a friend to where we were playing that day. So I turned it on for a few minutes to let the a/c run and went inside.........Now there’s a new putter in the bag!

    Yes.



    Curiosity and the desire to find something better usually. I've pretty much narrowed down my preferences but if a new style or technology comes out I'll likely want to try it. Plus hitting a cold steak usually means I need to shake things up.

    Something new and shiny....stick around this place enough and listen to others successes and think wonder if it will work for me.

    I made the switch early this year because I felt like I wasnt able to hit my lines consistently. After the switch I appear to be hitting those lines far more often.
