Help! How to restore original color on a Ping Bronze Putter?

9 posts in this topic

Hi Guys!

I need some help....

I got an original Bronze Ping Anser Putter as a present.

It's in pretty good conditions besides the color.... since it is made of bronze, its color turned to be very dark and stained.

I followed some advices like to apply some vinegard and salt, but it worked a bit but in the overall it did not change the color too much....from dark to a copper (brownish) finish.

any advice to get it back to yellow bronze?

how about a full restoration for the small dings and dents? do you guys know if Ping offer restoration service like Scotty Cameron?

Thanks!!!!

I don't know if this will work to your satisfaction, but I used Brasso on both my Ping Anser and my Ping Pal. Of course, it's not long before the finish starts changing color, back to dark and unshiny, again.

Thank You, Q.Q. Quillume!

So, what you are saying is that no matter how hard I try to polish.... sooner or later it is going to turn dark again?

In case you've never heard of Brasso

Is this good also for Bronze? or works best for Brass products?

Oh, yes. Here's a blurb clipped from the Ping website

http://www.pinggolf.com/putters_classics.html "The material Karsten Solheim chose for his earliest models—Manganese Bronze—helped define the PING putter. Chosen for its feel and quality attributes, it tarnishes with age to create a distinctive look that symbolizes confidence and trust. These putters are offered with a durable 'baked' satin finish that is resistant to the scratches that occur with normal use."

Yes, I think that although it's named "Brasso", it works on other metals as well. It did clean up my Ping Pal & my Ping Anser. And, I'd forgotten I used to have a Ping 1A that I sold, and it cleaned it up too. I don't know how easy it would be to find (online??) info about Brasso that tells what, specifically, kinds of metals it's supposed to work on . . . good luck.

brass and bronze are both copper alloys. What works for one should work for the other.

Hi

yes brasso is very good but please don't sniff it as its very noxious!!!!!....also try dipping it in to a can of coke, that usually does the trick but what a waste of a drink

personally i don't see anything wrong with the tarnished colour of the Ping Anser

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      Played 9 holes today and started out pretty good (for me) w/ 5 bogies in a row, then doubled the last four. Still, not a bad round.  
    • Anyone Else Use 'Good Shots' to Measure How Good a Round Was?
      This is what I do as well.  If I play a poor round then there are a lot of these, so I don't really dwell too much, but if I played a good round, then it frequently boiled down to a couple of really good to great shots, a whole bunch of manageable ones, and a couple awful ones.  The awful ones are the ones I feel should be entirely avoidable, so those are the ones I try and recount later and assess what went wrong.
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      I have been working with an Evolvr coach for a while and he has not addressed those concerns at a2 and in fact called my position a perfect example and something he would show to other students.  So your instructions do not match up for me.   It is frustrating to hear you make comments like that when they don't match up with what my coach says.   I still don't get why it matters if it goes from shallow to slightly steeper on the downswing.   Look at Furyks swing, is he hitting all the key positions?  If I hit A5 to A6 why does A3 matter anymore? If Robert Rock had the same angle at 5 as he does at 3 he would miss the ball too..  What is the difference in steep to shallow?  OR shallow to steep, but still outside the ball?  
    • Anyone Else Use 'Good Shots' to Measure How Good a Round Was?
      No because it's pretty rare I hit a really good shot. Many are happy accidents. Good is relative to par for me. If I gave myself a chance it's a decent shot. But most don't end up as I conceived it in my mind and I know that in my planning that it's a big target. I think in certain areas, miss right to get up and down if I know going for the green brings trouble into play. If it ends up right of the green and leaves me a pitch uphill it's good whether I hit it to my number for that club or chunk it 15 yards short.
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      @pumaAttack I didn't tell you to "model" your swing after Ko's, I was giving you an example of someone that is doing the opposite of what you're doing. Face looking "down" at 2, standing the shaft up at 3, this will make the shallowing move a lot more natural.  Exactly, you have to consider the entire motion. When the swing goes "shallow to steep" consistency is going to be hard to achieve because of the compensations you have to make with the sweetspot. Yes at 6 you may be pointing the shaft outside the ball but it's also steeper than you were at 3, these things matter. If you had the same shaft alignment at 5 that you do at 3 you'd miss the ball, so you in order to make contact you have to steepen the shaft. While the shaft is still outside the ball at 5 the sweetspot is going to move differently than if you were "steep to shallow". @pumaAttack I wasn't aware that you were still on Evolvr or that they had already made recommendations, I'm sure your instructor has mentioned the backswing and that it's part of their gameplan to address it. I was just trying to help, you mentioned you are trying to shallow the shaft on the downswing, I saw where you were on the downswing so I figured I'd post.
