Hey there,
I've just picked up a used Method 006 Prototype and I'm really excited to receive it. The seller has been very honest and sent me photos of the scratches to the sole. I know these are just normal signs of use, but is there ant simple ways of removing them without taking off the stamping on the bottom?
Cheers!

I don't think you can ever completely remove signs of usage without going down the 'resto' route and losing paint weight etc. Next best IMHO would be prudent application of some Eezox and see how you go. It will definitely help things.

Had a google, that stuff will be quite hard to get here in the UK. I was thinking something like a 3M pad might help by putting the original lines over the top or something like that.

I used to polish metals with a rotary brush, grinding wax and polishing wax way way back but that came to an end shortly after the Americans had to remove their military base here and leave. I made the rotary brush with their push brooms and have since been unable to make any more. In case you are able to find a way, I think polishing wax will smooth out the bottom of that club but I'm also pretty sure you will lose the paint in the stampings and shall have to replace it. The clubs I polished were stainless steel irons and woods and truly the paint comes off effortlessly and leaves the clubs mirror bright, which is a nuisance when the sun is shining bright.

Seems to me those scratches are not worth the effort.

Betcha it's not nearly as noticeable when you get it
Pictures like that tend to accentuate these types of "scratches"
I think if you worked too hard to buff all these off you might end up with a shiny sole putter, which to me would be more annoying than just leaving it alone as is
Good on the seller for showing you every possible "flaw" on the putter, but again, I'm thinking it will look much less noticeable in your hands

Do you really spend a lot of time looking at the sole of your putter?

If it was on the topline and bothering maybe.

The minute you hit that with a polishing compound it's going to start to wear the laser etching off. Just leave it....

As above, the second you putt with that you'll scratch it again unless you're one of those weirdos who puts putter tape on the sole!
