I have switched to the colt as my main putter for just this reason - small hands. I never could get comfortable with a grip on deeper putters and went through quite a few. I spent some time with the summit and only ditched it for the colt as the summit was just to US for me.

As for the pros/cons - I just don't see any difference between my colt and most normal putters (excluding things like zones/etc). Perhaps at the highest of levels you'd see a difference but for most mortals it really is all about the feel, getting a clean release, and your confidence. If that shallow putter feels right go for it and don't look back.
