Hey guys i picked this putter up and it had all this rust on it. I was wonder if i could use CLR to take it off. Will this take of the finish? If so what will the putter look like without this finish on it? any other suggestions on how to take the rust off are welcome! Thanks!

Anything you dip it in or brush on to take off the rust is going to take off the finish as well.  The Black Oxide coating is a form of rust as well.

Flitz is your best bet if you want to keep the finish.  Either way, you'll have to oil the heck out of it on a regular basis.  Doubly so if you live near the ocean.

Send it back to Scotty. For a couple of hundred, he will make it a 700 dollar putter. Worth every penny. My Napa came out incredible.

It's not a 1995 First Run and it's not a 1996 copper.  If you think a restoration makes that a $700 putter, you're smoking crack.

It's a gamer and a good one.  It should continue to be gamed.

Please don't restore it. It's a great putter with a lot of character. If you're worried about rust, rub it with eezox and 0000 steel wool. It will look great.

It's going to look like raw steel, like a Cleveland RTG wedge.  It will also start to rust back up almost immediately.  If you're bothered by rust, don't remove the finish.  It'll rust more quickly.

If you don't want to deal with maintenance, consider getting it plated in nickel or copper.

No,not really 12 hours in a coke bath then pollished up with some Flitz.It now is a high maintainence putter ,it has to be oiled after every use although using Eezox is the best way to go.

The only refinished one I saw was a first 500 and it was a BIN at $750 and was taking offers so it seems that stage is right on.

That's about as brilliant as the Golf Digest article that was talking about how expensive putters by what they are listed for on eBay, rather than what they SELL for.

Please post links to any 1995-1996 gun blue Napa that SOLD for $700.

A gun blue mint original would go for around 400, a restored one would go for less

If you have a raw carbon steel putter, why can't you spray polypropylene onto it to seal it?

Would it dry gummy?
