I've always played toe weighted Newport/Anser style putters.  I'm wanting to switch to a face balanced flat stick as my stroke is really a straight back and forth.  

Any suggestions?  Doesn't have to be a brand new model.  I think I want to explore a center shaft.

thanks.

I have a scotty futura 5s and use to be a grabage putter and im still good by any means but center shaft has helped my putting more than anything. I have also read recently that right handed players that are left eye dominant(me) fit a center shaft better

Lot's of CS models out there, find one that feels best for you! Most CS models have some toe hang, so let us know what you find that is face balanced.

SeeMore is a good place to start IMO.  I play lefty, putt righty, and am left eye dominant.  Slight arc (tiny) stroke.  Center shaft with very little dangle angle work for me.

Over the years I always seem to putt better with a center shafted putter.  My current gamer is an Odyssey OWorks #2M CS, and I absolutely love it!

This thing has also an adjustable lie angle, adjustable weights, high MOI, and a black shaft option with, and without offset!

Even if you don't keep it, it will help you to figure out, which weight, and lie angle are the best for your game.

I play CS putters. Rolled the Kinloch C and loved it. Feel, weight, stock grip all worked perfectly.  Just picked up a SeeMore Del Mar X3 so the Ping will have to wait.

My son switched from an Anser/blade putter to an original TM Spider center-shafted putter last year. He's right handed, left eye dominant. Doesn't 3-putt and doesn't miss from 10 feet in.

I actually just got one of these.  I've played with CS putters in stores but never seriously gamed one.  I generally like them but feel like the alignment devices never look right...probably because the shaft is intersecting with them.  The two ball isn't bad.  The Kinloch and the SeeMore stuff isn't terrible either.  Definitely interested to try out the ER7CS if it ever gets to a store where I can try it out.

Thanks for the shout out!

CS putters aren't for everyone but they're the only thing I like looking down at. I started my collection with an Odyssey #2. Can find these on the cheap if you're looking to experiment with the idea. As others also mentioned, Seemore and Ping have some OTR options as well

I rolled the CS spider the other day for almost an hour. I like my stroke to have very little arc it it.

I think I will be staying with the DJ spider. My natural stroke has a slight arc and I find with the CS I pull more putts then I would like. Probably due to me releasing the putter to the left instead of straight down the line. The DJ I find I have a more natural stroke with
