Your Height & Putter Length?

6'2" | 35-1/2"... how about you? 

Have you tested various lengths?  Do you just follow the generally accepted rule of thumb regarding physical height and length?  I won my putter decades ago at a company tournament.  It was a gift certificate to the pro shop and I dabbled with a few before choosing the B61.  As it turns out, it's the right length (or very close) for my height based on the rule of thumb.  Whether it is ideally suited for me I have know idea... yet.

5'10" - 34" putter.  I started out using 35" putters, then tried 34", then play 33" for a number of years and am now back to 34".  I found with a 33" that I was more likely to top the ball at times and I found with a 35" that I wasn't able to let my arms hang naturally like I like to.

5'10" - I use a 33" putter, and I choke well down on the grip.  It probably plays effectively at 31".

6'0" and for years I used a 32" putter.

After my Ping fitting 3 years ago, I am using an 34" counterbalanced Ping putter that has a 15" grip and I grip it near the bottom of the grip.

I'm about 6' 3" in golf shoes, and I've always used a 35". But I prefer a more upright posture, and I've recently felt like a 35" required me to lean over more than I care to. I recently did a putter fitting, and 36" was the sweet spot for my preferred posture, so that's what I'll be trying very soon.

6'-0 1/2" (that 1/2" is important, darn it!) using a 33" putter.  I've never been truly fit, but the 33" length allows me to hang my arms with my posture.  I'm certainly not the greatest putter on Earth, but I make my share.

5’ 10” and I use a 35” putter. This is based on the setup that enables me to see the line properly.

5'10" 34in

I putted at 35in for a long time

I tried a friends putter at 34 and never looked back

I seem to line the ball up better at that height

6'4" and use a 37" putter. Picked up a demo model Anser 2 years ago and now I can't go lower as it feels like I'm hunched over. Recently picked up a TA #3 Impact from Golf Galaxy and immediately took it over to their in-store shop to get an extension and new grip as my lower back felt the strain just in testing it on their in-store green - or maybe i have poor core strength, haha.

I never used height, or wrist to floor measurement to determine putter length.  I use a 33.5 inch putter which I have found to be the best for me.  I am 5'5" tall.  I settled on that length through trial and error.  I think the style of putter also makes a difference.

Whew. I was relieved when I read the responses after seeing the title.   Afterlall this is a family friendly forum😁

I am 6'5" and use 35" A fitter told me you should use the shortest length putter you feel comfortable with.  I tried a 34" and I just felt too hunched over and my back would hurt after like 5 minutes of practice.  So it was back to 35"

5' 11" and I use a 34" putter. I've tried 33"s but felt like I was a little too hunched over. All 3 putters in my rotation are 34" and I feel like I can move between them when one starts misbehaving with little to no readjustment period.
