I have a older set of cobra oversize irons and i really like them a lot but they are starting to look their age is there anything y'all can think of to restore these a bit? i regularly clean them and etc.

getting them refinished somewhere (ie.. Iron Factory) is quite costly and very time consuming. I would say that it averages about 1/2 the price of new clubs but the turn around time is up to 2 months or more. Not good if you dont have a backup set.

Other than cleaning regularly, I am not sure of any type of restoring you can do yourself... unless you own a sandblaster lol

actually i have access to just about anything i would need sandblasters very large multi axis mills etc.

i was just thinking of polishing them up. at work we have huge polishing wheels but i cant get into the cavity in the back. thats the problem i cant get the brown color out of the textured steel in the back of the clubs.

well, you could try a mixture of different things. I know I used to soak my clubs in coke to remove the finish.. takes a couple days but worked like a charm on my scotty. Use something with an acidic base. Your clubs are cast i assume? not forged?

If I worked where you worked my golf clubs would be pristine.

Why don't you just take the heads off of the clubs and stick them in the sandblaster? That way you can get at the cavity but if you want the polished look on the rest of the clubhead you can just do it later....

so your saying i should media blast the back at least and it will bring that back to life? i have never thought of that but what if i pulled the heads off and put them in a tumbler that you use for polishing reloading brass. ? my irons are cast so i dont want to ruin the finish thats left?

Any chance you could get a picture up of what you have? You could try buying an old beat club and sticking that in the blaster/tumbler to see what happens. That way you could work out how 'harsh' your machine is. I'm fairly sure that Ping does their satin finishes via blasting/tumbling though so it shouldn't prove to be too much of a problem.

    • Yes, eventually you learn when to do it in order not to slow down play and still get it done without feeling hurried. I walk fast am am usually the first to the green many times, so that helps too. And by pacing, I simply walk to the pin and multiply by 3 ft/pace. Just in case anyone thinks otherwise. 
    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually.
