Can anyone list all (or some) of the Bettinardi center shaft putters?  I'm trying to compare them and see which is the best. Thanks

Picked up a CS TM Ghost Spider a few weeks back. I like how its easy to keep online when stroking it but having issues with distance control (seems short on a lot of puts). If I can get used to the soft face insert.....:russian_roulette:

That's exactly why I prefer and still use my TaylorMade center shaft 1st generation Spider putter. It's still the most forgiving and effective putter that I've used to date (used to play Rife Barbados putter).

If your going to go CS might as well go mallet. CS is best for a SBST stroke and so are mallets  IMO...

SC Newport 2.6 is wonderful.  Nice feel to it and so far rolls like a dream.

Kind of a mallet evolution. All are either welded or modular center shaft Machine M2A Converters with the exception of the far right. It is a Meritage.

I am partial to SeeMore Center Shaft Putters -- they have so many that you ought to find one that fits. Plus you get an alignment aid in the riflescope - even though a SeeMore is not my gamer, I keep a FGP in my bag for practice.

I like the mFGP if I was gaming a SeeMore.

If you like face balanced, the new PCB has a similar look.

As I said, they have so many CS putters.

Just now toying with the idea of a CS putter. Most models I've seen have the shaft connected to the top of the face. I've only seen pictures of the Yes! Amy model, but the shaft runs behind the face. Anyone have experience with this type of putter?

Been through lots of CS's and paired em down to Rife & Scotty 2.6. However my new SeeMore PCB just ousted the 2.6 for #1 bag position.

Currently using and liking the Heavy Putter mid-weight center shafted mallet with superstroke grip in 32.5".  The speed control on longer putts is excellent with the heavier weight.  

Previously used:  Rife barbados cs, odyssey 2ball cs, and nike (can't remember name) cs.  I don't know how people can putt with answer style putters, I can't get them to not bounce off the face.

Just picked up a Seemore One Center shafted putter, one of the best putters I've ever had & I'm not even a blade guy.  The feel of this putter is so great I coudln't believe it.  Very easy to hit.  In comparison I was gaming a Scotty Cameron Kombi & switching from that to an older SC X5.  I'll also be picking up the Seemore M5X Center shafted b/c i want to try out the Aluminum insert & it should feel like the Kombi but hopefully as easy to hit as the Seemore one.

Can anyone tell me what the major advantage of a center shafted putter is? Is it alignment or getting a truer roll? I ran across this thread and never really considered a center shaft before but maybe now???? Thanks
