If there is anything that will ruin a refinished putter, it is rust. If you do not protect against this menacing act of nature, your beautiful refinished putter could turn into a scrapyard metal rather quickly. Not all putters rust though, so it is important to understand which ones need a rust preventative and which ones don't.
The method shown in the video below is not something that you need to do for every putter that you refinish. Most refinishing chemicals have a rust preventative built in, so this protective step is unnecessary. For example, polymer finishes and black oxide finishes protect against rust already.
If you have a carbon steel putter that is in its "raw" it needs some sort of rust protection.
