Then recently had the chance to trade the Futura 5.5 for a Futura 5s (Center Shafted), and I have to say it just feels better in my hands. The ball consistently comes off the face where I want it, and the putter feels like it swings itself.
I hope I re-read this thread anytime I think of going away from a CS putter in the future ...

Easy to aim, very nice weight (on the heavier side), well-designed grip, good sound & feel.
I always like to keep a center shaft putter around, just to help my eyes see the line better after using putters with too many angles and lines. CS putters also help my stroke be less-mechanical.

I think it forces me to address the ball closer as the shaft is now in the middle of the putter rather than the heel. This in turn allows me to line up better with my eyes directly over the ball.
Second thing was lie angle. I've always had the heel of the putter off the ground (similar to Stricker's setup) and it never felt right. My mishits would make me feel like the heel was turning over with the toe being the axis...if that makes sense? My current putter now sits perfectly on the ground when I setup. Can't say for sure if this is directly related to being a cs putter or not.
