Putter Paint Fill and Shaft Blackout


Recommended Posts

Just finally got a better picture of the finished product. I've knocked out a few rounds and there's no paint chipping thus far.

Just finished up. The paint is a little glossier than I'd prefer but I'm hoping that'll flatten out as it cures. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it and it frames much better to my eye on the practice s

You might try a length of heat shrink tubing for the shaft.

The easy route would be to change the grip buuutttt you might be able to tuck it under the grip with the aid of a small screw driver?

So I've done some research on this on Google but can only find tutorials for total refinishing. I don't want to strip all the paint off the putter and do a total custom job, I just want to fill in a distracting piece of the head.

 

I want to go from this:

xcBIF9T.jpg

 

To this:

I want to take the minimally invasive approach.

Could I just take some enamel paint and go over the white section with no additional work?

 

 

 

 

 

Bonus question: Is there a good process where I can paint the shaft without removing the head or grip?

Yep. Used to see them in some golf shops years ago. Can do something similar with your own putter with pelt putter clips or by putting rubber bands, band aids, etc outside you sweet spot. Great for working on center face contact.

This is my recommendation as well. I think you saw how this came out on my MLA. I used this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-1-Heat-shrink-Tubing-5-8-10FT-Black/263350448613

This requires the grip be removed right? That's the only thing stopping me from trying it on my Odyssey putter.

 

 

Now, I'm about to replace the grip on my MLA so I might give it a try on that one.

Yeah, you'd have to remove either the head or the grip.

Great job especially the taping.  There is a lot of work to get that perfect.  It looks way better than it did.

The tube you used, was it pretty thin? I know SS grips are already tough to get on so I don't want to make it even harder by thickening up the shaft.

It's hard to quantify the thickness without measuring, but the Flat Cat has that conical part at its base, and it went on just fine. The key is that when you're installing, there's no good reason to put the shrink wrap all the way up to the butt end of the shaft. Measure down the shaft the distance that the grip will cover, and maybe have the shrink wrap go an inch or so over that. Then put the grip tape over that, and (in my experience) the grip slides right on.

Thanks for that information. How far up to do was another question I had so I'm glad you mentioned that.

 

I think I'm gonna give this a shot. A blacked out MLA will look cool.

Ah yes, the Stubby. Relaunched as the Smart Square Stubby when Cleveland tried the Smart Square line. Jacob Van Zyl used it on the European Tour during a round last year. One of the oddities of club design I would love to add to the ol' collection.

I was seriously on the fence until I saw your comment. The stock Forward grip is just so pleasing to the eye I was going to try to change my grip and make it work. But now I owe it to you to make my putter look awesome 🤩

 

I've got a buddy that works at Dick's so I may just see if he can save the Forward grip then I'll do the makeover.

Haha! If you've got a grip removal tool, it's an easy process. I've done the heat shrink project before on my TFI 2135 putter, and it is definitely an easy way to black out a shaft. However, I wanted a legit black shaft so I just ordered one from GolfWorks. Looks pretty awesome.

 

I love DIY stuff like this, and now you've got me wondering what things I should customize.
