  1. Lamont, i've checked out all your stuff, its awesome. I bet you know 100 times more about this than me, have I accurately described the coating and process, etc? Do you need to clarify anything? Its funny, i just got a Vincino...its awesome.
  2. To remove powdercoating from a metal surface it has to be sandblasted, chipped, or grinded off. I have played each of these for several rounds, because they are a thick polymer coating, the colors do not fade away like a "charcoal mist" or "oil can" finish would (the powdercoating doesnt look as nice). The only areas where the powder coating has come off is due to bag chatter, not at all where the ball striking area is. If you look around, most people dont realize, but they have a ton of powder coated stuff in their garage, shed, etc. An air compressor, auto parts, your rims on your car, if you have an ornamental fence in your yard or area - those are all powder coated finishes, they look like paint, but they are ultra hard, ultra durable, high gloss in most cases, finishes. Pretty cool really, i bet you could powder coat your steel shafts, THAT would be cool with some cell parts hosels.
  3. From what i've seen online you do have the ability to "mask off" certain areas like a badge or an insert, but i think the danger is, depending on the insert, the epoxy or the material itself melting or getting damaged under the high heat of the curing oven. If its the titanium AGSI insert, you may be able to mask off that area and powder coat around it. If its the Surlyn Pure Roll insert, i would worry about the surlyn melting.
  4. Sure, powder coating is basically a powder paint that adheres to a metal surface by static electricity, once the powder coverage is achieved, the part is run through about a 400 degree line oven and the paint bakes onto and bonds to the surface. Because it is more or less a paint product, it is available in thousands of colors and finish combinations. In my opinion it softens the feel of the putter head very slightly. Usually if you find a local powder coating place they will run your putter head through their oven with whatever color they happen to be set up to spray for 5 bucks or even free. You just need to torch the hosel to loosen the epoxy and remove the head, clean the head as best as you can, then it will be ready to powder. Once it is powdered, you can clean out the lettering areas with a fine dremel bit or nail, then paint with Testors model paint or other. Hope that helps, like I said, you will definitely get notice at the course, but it is not as nice as a factory finish. Have Fun,
  5. I've seen the idea thrown around for powder coating putters and I have been tinkering with a few, so i thought i would throw some pictures up here for you to see what the final product is. It's pretty neat to have it done, it does not look nearly as nice as what comes off the rack, but its very cool.
  6. http://blogs.golf.com/equipment/2011/05/ping-anser-wedges.html good article with a better picture of the wedge and some info about design, release, date and lofts
  7. just saw this on twitter - anyone know anything about these? http://tap11.com/view.htm?id=PO62L2
  8. so if i torch it and then quench it water or oil, it won't really have any effect?
  9. Hey Guys, i just found a Acushnet Bullseye heel shafted putter on the used rack for 12 bucks and i am thinking if trying to refinish it. Being that it is Brass ( i think ) can i do an oil can finish or torched look? What other options might i have? I am already doing a White Powder Coat on an old Ping Anser that i have, so i don;t think i want to powder coat this one. any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  10. I agree, i am pretty new here, there are alot of anser style putter out there, but that 8802 is incredible. Is that a home made oil can finish? What kind of "oil" do you dunk it in to keep that finish?
  11. The Black Finish is realy pretty nice and the insert is a very different feel than anything PING has tried before. Its also very different than an Odyssey insert. The Anser 2 feels very light, but the ball does come off the face hot. Any PING lover should check these out, and if you wrote them off by the pictures alone, go pick one up, they are more charming in person.
