For those of you who've been gaming a cs putter for a while....have you tried going back to a traditional heel shafted putter?

I went to PGA superstore recently to try some putters for fun and wow I couldn't hit any of them straight!  Grabbed a cs off the rack and it just looked better and I rolled the putts better.  Not sure if this is because the cs is right for me or if it just happened over time?

Are you aiming it where you think you're aiming it?

That's the test.

I picked up a limited SC 5MBS which is CS last year to help my putting. I read around here and online that if you putt SBST a CS putter will usually fit you well. It immediately helped my putting. Being a club ho I have tried going away from it a few times and its always a huge struggle. Saturday I played in a tournament with a Spider Tour to the tune of 40 putts. I mean I probably would have only had 39 with the CS, lol. But I do find I lose something when I go away from the CS putter. Its weird.

i have to say - this man has owned so many different putter types, brands, styles, etc...if he says the CS putter was a better fit for him, i believe it.

Relieved to hear I'm not the only one.  Sorry to hear about your 40 putts!  I owned a Spider Tour for a brief stint while I was transitioning into the CS and it was the sweetest looking yet worst performing putter for me ever.  I know there are great reviews about it but for a more SBST stroke, it felt like a heavy swinging door.  One that ALWAYS opened and closed!  Does put a nice tight roll on the ball though.

I am not in love with my Cleveland HB #6c. But I am afraid I will have to commit to it until I can afford a CS that I really want.  I have seen some sweet Bettinardi CS putters, saving up for one...

Biggest issue with the Spider for me is distance control and the feel or lack of feel.

Also, I have to love my putter and love how it looks or I stray very easily. The Scotty was stupid expensive but its badass looking.
