I am having my irons replated in black chrome by kj polishing.  Should i get a mirror finish or satin finish?  What do you think?

I'm kinda curious - How durable are those finishes? I think my 690.MB's would look sweet in black chrome...

One word of caution...  I'm not familiar with kj polishing, but I have seen sets of heads ruined when the chrome is removed and a black finish is applied.  The chrome accounts for a lot of head weight, and if the "new" finish applied isn't equally as heavy, you will end up with really light heads.  I was looking at a set of awesome looking MP37's that had been finished in black, yet when I asked what the "new" swingweights were, I found they were C-6 - not exactly playable....

Like all others have said, I would go with the Satin as well... I don't think you will be disappointed.

I myself love the shiny black chrome, the glare has never bothered me.

  That looks pretty nice to me.  Why would you prefer satin?  Is the mirror chrome too bright?  Does it highlight too many defects?  I am leaning towards the mirror chrome but I am open to satin.
