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

Recommended Posts

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?

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."

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

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.

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
