Been testing putters for a some time now and the best I think for me is the Ping Sigma G Kinloch C putter
So I pulled the trigger today.

Why because it seams simple straight shaft into a simple head,
Ping is a name you can trust 

I despise my putter and my putter hates me its time to brake the relationship

I play good golf from the tee to green but my putter hates me

By sending your current putter to the naughty corner it will learn some respect. Whilst you'll be feeling some sadness about this sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.

I do warn you about the naughty corner getting crowded. They talk to each other like an ex-wives club. There's no guarantee that they'll be excited but recycling every now and then can keep them interested.

Does the grip need to be hollowed out with a nail file?

This reminds me of an article I red about Colin Montgomerie who ounce left his putter in a gutter out side the window of a hotel room. The way he described laying it in the cold of night never to bring it back in and just left the hotel.
My new betrothed still stands in the pro shop as I rode my bike to the golf course today
As for the old ***** still in my bag I will lay it on the work bench right next to the angle grinder to torment it for a few weeks like its tormented me the last 6 months.
