Polymer Putter Refinish (very durable)
If you are refinishing a carbon steel putter, there is a good chance you will start seeing some rust on it after several weeks. But if you coat the putter with a polymer finish, you’ll not only eliminate the rust, but you’ll have a professional looking, scratch resistant putter!
Carbon Steel Black Oxide Finish
As an easier, cheaper alternative to a polymer refinish, you can keep the rust away from your carbon steel putters by using a black oxide. I think applying a light coating followed by a gentle beadblasting looks great!
Stainless Steel Black Oxide Finish
If you have ever tried to apply a black oxide coating to a Scotty Cameron, you will notice that it doesn’t do much. That is because stainless steel requires a special chemical to achieve the black oxide finish as shown in this post.
Torching a Putter
When metal gets hot, it changes colors. We can use this to our advantage and achieve remarkable finishes on any putter with the use of a propane torch.
