Is that a copper putter which has been polished or is there a plating added?

Just received my dadís oldie but goodie Ping Anser 3, from Nor_Cal Putters in Auburn, CA. I would have rather sent out a Scotty for him but other than a JBlade also by Ping, this was his longest gamer. They offer a ton of different looks at really decent prices. I had the face milled (not originally milled), initials stamped, and red paintfill on sight line and initials. Black paintfill was used in original Ping Anser 3 stamp and Pings patent etc on back. But now my fear is this is too shiny and too nice to game. Maybe even over the top? Iíve included a few pictures at different angles of address to catch the light. I may be forced to shadowbox or display this one and take a more muted approach on the JBlade.

Thoughts? In the end itís up to him but I feel in the middle of the day it may be too distracting for him and his playing partners. Hell maybe those teeing off behind him, those ahead of him if they look back, and The ISS if anyone is aboard it these days!

Lovely putter. What model of Iomic grip is on it?


Thanks! Weíll see come Christmas what Pops decides to do with it. Going to go ahead with getting the JBlade done for him in case.

i-Classic Mid 72g.

Actually learned something when I went to separate the putter head from the old shaft. Discovered the ball and pressure lock in this putter head. Does Ping still do this? Kind of cool.

They no longer do this.  Curious, how did you get the shaft out?

DSG employee/buddy warmed up the hossle and used graphite shaft extractor. It took some time but eventually came out and would caution anyone against doing the same! :)  No damage to head or socket, and since I was not keeping the shaft I wasnít worrried.

Shaft is now sad in the corner.

Edit: How could I forget this? Not giving Nor_Cal enough credit, here are the before of the head as well.
