CRC heavy duty silicone spray...any good?
I've read here that not all silicone sprays protect putters. Some may hurt the finish and the paint fill of the putter.

I found a CRC heavy duty silicone spray at Walmart and wonder if this is safe to apply to my putter. I didn't buy it since it says it contains some sort of acetone. Is there anyone who uses this product for his/her putters? Can anyone help me which product is most reliable?



Thank you.

    CRC was the gold standard for carbon putter protection before Breakfree became popular.



    It works fine and has yet to mess up any of the paintfill in my putters.

    Hi,

    I went into a store to find some silicone spray. I could only find this kind also. I read that there is an electrical kind made by CRC, but I didnt see any in the store. Will this stuff be ok to use on a carbon putter, or should I keep searching for another kind?

    I use WD-40 on my TP Mills. I also spray some into the headcover occasionally if I'm gaming it more regularly. Does the trick

    I don't like using spray-on silicon because I feel it leaves the putter too oily. I've used silicon-treated cloths that they sell at a gun shop, and they give just enough protection without being too oily. And then I leave a cloth in the headcover so it is continually working.

    Seems like a good time to ask, should the silicon cloth treatment also be applied to the original (non insert) Odyssey Black Series putters? I was unsure since they are 1025 Carbon Steel with nickle-plating? Thanks

    I wouldn't think so. The nickle-plating should be fairly maintenance free, but I have seen a few some with rust pits...

    This is the one you want. No residue with this one.
