I put 3/4 roll of lead tape on the bottom of the shaft. No wobble. And it smooths out the stroke. And enhances feel for me. I'm very rh dominant. When I putt I pretend I'm not putting, but chipping, and push the clubhead out along the line. Seems to take the stress out. Been doing this tape-thing since the beginning; always preferred a heavy putter. And the bowling comment above might apply to me as well.  
Everyone that tries my heavy putter really likes it.
Now that I think about it, chipping with the pw has removed a lot of stress around the green. I used to just grab the putter and sw, but always felt stress with the sw. A buddy in Phoenix, mike burlaka, always used his pw, and was deadly with it. I recently started using the pw, using my putting stroke for the most part and have never been better around the greens.
This game is nuts.

I also prefer heavier putters and actually use one of these.

Update: the best option as for now is the reverse grip (left hand lower), open stance and the ball in line with my dominant eye. I can see the line of the putt without turning my head back and forth and the right humerus and elbow are nicely tied with my torso. With this position I also do not need to stand very far from the ball which is good.

It was really blowing one round a yr ago or so, and I had to widen my open stance. Putted so well I kept the stance.
