Buy Now then get fit...or get fit then buy?

I don't have a ton of places around me to get a proper putting analysis done. I would really like to get a new Scotty Cameron Newport 2 but unsure on what lenght, if would need any lie adjustments on it. Would cutting it down if I went 35" devalue it later on? How many changes can be made?
I am currently have a early-mid 2000s Ping G2i Anser putter that I like, I enjoyed it over my a mallet I had back in the day, again not sure if an analysis would reveal I putt better with a mallet.
Any thoughts on this and help from those who have higher end putters would be helpful, just not sure how you should treat a putter compared to the other clubs in your bag.

    I wouldn't think it would devalue it at all, since the new putters all have weights in them the length doesn't matter as much as it did back then.

    If you buy a used Scotty, test it, resell it, you will lose very little in resale. If you buy a new Scotty and do same same, you will lose a couple hundred bucks.
    Cutting down doesnt generally devalue too much, but once you get under 34" it generally becomes more difficult to sell...and usually sells for a bit less.

    Overall...i would advise to get fit second. Test drive a car...then buy.

    Buy what you like when it comes to a putter. If you buy right, you can use it for a while and lose little on it.

    The only time I would say buy before fit/testing is if it's a deal and a legit deal you cannot pass up where if the club doesn't work you can sell it for what you paid.
