Question What's causing the higher putt?

I've been putting with prodigy PA4s for a long time. I decided just for kicks to change things up and picked up a couple jawbreaker focuses. I did some practice putting and with the same movement and distance the focuses were much higher. I could subconsciously be doing a different swing but after a few shots push putting it seems consistently higher loft than the PA4. Also from larger distances I'm able to putt with less effort.

I'm trying to figure out what the cause of this is. Of course it could be and probably is a mixture of things but there's a few things different between these putters.

Jawbreaker is softer/more flexible.
Focus is deeper causing possibly more glide
Grip is slightly different because of the rim casing a slight nose up

Any ideas?

Probably a mix of more glide mixed with the grip changing your release angle slightly. Even the smallest things can make that difference on a putt.

More glide and probably more nose up considering the focus is deeper.

Edit. You answered your own question perfectly.
