I have been a big putter addict for the past couple of years, I have everything from the random to the custom. Scotty to Odyessy

I love my Scottys, I have 5, 2 Studio Designs (1 and 1.5), 1 Studio Select (1.5), and 2 Bullseye (one flange and one without).

I am starting this thread because I know a lot out there love their flatsticks (Bossman, maybe we can get a "Flatstick/Putter" subforum?).

I am stripping my putter NAKED! I want a clean RAW look with NO mill marks. I may be crazy but when it will be polished, paint filled, black shafted with a new grip, this will look HOT!

What you will need
Sand paper (320 regular, 320 wet/dry, 800 wet/dry, 1000/1200 wet/dry)
Metal polish

A lot of the super high sand grit sand paper you can get at a automotive supply store for paints

Steps
This putter is a standard putter from Scotty Cameron Studio Design line. Milled from a solid block of carbon steel for solid feel and precise tolerance, the Studio 1 features a soft flanged blade, flowing neck with a shiny gun blue finish.

Using your sand paper with the 320, sand all areas of the putter to remove the gun blue finish. Work you way to the 320 wet/dry to start to smooth out and remove sand lines.

Then use the 800, first use it dry, then follow up with it wet. It may not seem at first to look like it is taking off much but trust me you are smoothing it out

Then start to SUPER fine sand it with the 1000 or 1200 grit. You are trying to remove all the blue/black and get to a RAW finish. YES this will be more susceptible to rust but if you maintain it properly with drying it off and wiping it down with oil clothes you will be just fine.

When finished sanding follow up with the metal polish....you do not want a super shine but just enough to stand out. (I am still sanding more today and tomorrow but finished head will be done this weekend with paint fill)

have you done one of those? I have always wanted to, but people say to use dirty oil and some say to use clean oil.

I would not mind just heating it up a bunch and sinching it in water, but dont know.

Yeah I did a Studio Design #1. I tried to copy the pics from TCC where I posted them but it doesn't save right.

I used new SAE 30 non-detergent oil. I would heat the head for a few minutes and then dip the head. I did this a few times until I liked the finish. Make sure you do this outside and away from anything that might catch fire. It's a good idea to use a metal container to put the oil in. It was a fun little experiment! :^x^:
