'Satin' Finish repairs possible?

Recommended Posts

I've got a couple of putters, a beautiful Bettinardi Mizuno, and a new Odyssey WhiteIce, both of which have one of those 'satin' metal finishes, albeit different colours. Its the Bettinardi I'm most annoyed at though, its picked up a scratch from a bit of grit on the underneath (probably from tapping down a pitch mark repair or something)... Can't see any way of repairing it though - unless anyone knows of a DIY top-tip?

I'm interested in this also. And what about stainless? Is there a way to remove very fine scratches from stainless without having to send it for an expensive re-finish?

Well - took a stab in the dark, and gave a very fine auto-grade abrasive pad a try. Cut some small squares, and just worked back and forth with the grain of the satin finish. Judge for yourselves if its helped :D

Very nice. This is great to file away. I was going to suggest the magic eraser. Not even trying to be silly. That wacky eraser has done wonders to clubs that I thought I had scarred for life.

Which product - the Polish or the Scratch Remover? Or is it all one product?
