+1 on the Odyssey Backstryke. My friend has the Backstryke D.A.R.T. and putts very well. I asked if I could use it for a round and it seemed that my putting improved as well over my traditional offset blade putter. Very good feel to his putter.

Yeah I think looking at the Odyssey line would be your best bet.  Don't know of too many OEM's that make center shafted mallets, I think Scotty did a couple years ago.

There are also some nice center shafted mallets in the Taylor Made Ghost line. They are a couple years old now, so you might be able to get a pretty good deal on one, like this one.

Seemore also has a few center-shafted mallets.

I've played an Odyssey 2-ball center shafted mallet for 7+ years now and I love it.  Odyssey doesn't even make that putter anymore; in fact very few manufacturers make a center shafted mallet anymore.  I don't get the same effect from the backstryke--I just don't like the looks of all of that twisty-curvy stuff at the end of the shaft, and I'd constantly be worried that it got bent when my clubs were rattling around in the trunk.

I second k-troop on the Odyssey two ball center shaft. It is a heavy head, which I like obviously. You can really feel it swing. I've coupled that with a the really fat Super Stroke grip in order to take my hands out of the swing. Just rock the shoulders and trust the mass of the putter to get the ball moving.

Ping C67 - my fave center shaft model ... gotta have one that I can scoop up the ball with - many of the larger mallets aren't scoopers

Check out the center-shafted version of the Bettinardi BB-54

Love my Seemore small mallet style.

I have tried a few different types of center shafted putters and I do not like them. Aligning the center of the putter face to the ball seems very odd to me with the shaft in the center. I prefer an "Anser" style blade putter with a goose neck hosel and center alignment mark(s). This is what I am most comfortable with.

Good choice - SeeMore FGP2 is a  center mallet, as well as others.

 

If you want something heavier and with an insert, Bobby Grace makes some sticks with innovation:

Historic note: Check out the first known center-shafted mallet putter, the Schenectady (circa 1904). Used by American golfer Walter J. Travis, the Schenectady was legal in the USA but was banned in Britain. The Brits thought it made putting too easy.

 

So be careful: golf might become boring if you suddenly start sinking all your putts!
