Ping G Iron Cleanup w/ Bar Keepers Friend (pictures)

So there are several references in the Ping G irons thread about using bar keepers friend to clean up the faces. I finally got around to doing this today and I am pretty happy with the results. I have had my G irons for just over a month and have about 9 rounds on them. After 9 rounds, there is definitely more noticeable face wear than my older I5 or G15 irons had. Some of the irons had a few oxidation spots as well. The 6 iron was the worst (pictured below). I cleaned my clubs like I normally would using water and a tooth brush. After the initial cleaning, I took the "before" pictures. Next, I took a little bit of BKF powder on a paper plate, sprinkled some water on it, and mixed it up with my wife's toothbrush to a thin consistency. I scrubbed the face and sole of each club with the BKF paste. Once I finished, I washed each club with fresh water to remove the BKF. Here are the before and after shots on two of the clubs.

    Those look great. That stuff is awesome, takes hard water spots off glass with zero effort as well.

    Not sure. One thing is that the newer finishes will never be as durable as the old tumbled finish of the Eye 2 era or the guyson finish on the I3/I5 era. My guess is that the oxidation spots are from metal cross contamination where the heads are produced.

    Bar Keeper's Friend is great stuff.



    I never thought about using it on clubs but i do use it to clean ceramic rods that I use for sharpening knives and it works like a charm and takes all the metal that was removed from the blades edge off the ceramic stones to make them look like new.

    Great stuff!! Are the dark spots on the 9 iron face just fingerprints or is it oxidized?

    If you are asking about the dark spots on the after photo, those are just from not having the face completely dry. There were some oxidation spots on the before picture.
