Scotty Cameron Newport Classic


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have picked up this Scotty Cameron Newport Classic on a local classifieds and was wondering your thoughts on it.

 

I only paid $120 AUD for it. I thought it would become a good project to work on.

 

What would you do to refinish or bring it back from all the surface rust?

 

I am from Australia so sending it to to get refinished in the US is cost prohibitive for me. Lajosi has quoted me ~$160 AUD + postage to refinish it and re paint.

 

Let me know your thoughts...

Man that is rusty. To get rid of all that you would lose a ton of weight and still have pitting. I would get rid of that very heavy grip, oil it and play it as is.

It's still a quality putter. If it were me, I would find a good machine shop, remill the face but just take a small cut .002 or .003, get an old buffing wheel that you can trash and polish with remington oil, clean it, strip the old paint and re-do. I think you could have an oil can brown look.

 

To re-finish it's hard to say how much weight you would lose to get all the rust off, guessing 6 to 10 grams.

 

If you want to send me the head I'll see what I can do with it. PM me

So your saying CLR is better to use and easier to clean up that coke? Would CLR be to harsh on it?

 

I prefer CLR. It is not any more harsh than the phosphoric acid that is in the coke. Plus I believe the results will happen sooner than the coke bath. Good luck and have fun with it.

I could be wrong, but that looks like a nice even coat of surface rust. I dont see any scaling which would usually indicate pitting.

Also this putter is a 36". My preferred length is a 33". Should i shorten it and get rid of that grip at the same time? What grip should i go?

My other scotty is a studio style newport 2 that came with a super stroke mid slim 2.0 that is still on it. I dont mind those blue golf pride tour SNSR grips, what are your thoughts on them?

I prefer CLR to coke, but as others have said you could easily play it as is with a little oil.

 

I found a similarly rusted newport for a great deal a few weeks back and decided to eventually have it refinished so I started myself with a CLR bath, I will post pictures when I have a chance!

 

I would love to see pics of before and after, and the final restored product when you have it finished...

Grips are all personal preference. I use a SS pistol GTR 2.0 just it fits my hands and claw style well. I would say to cut it down and regrip. You may want to add some lead tape to the bottom, or put some weight in the shaft (sand/lead/etc) if it feels light.

 

Beautiful putter.. Let me know if you decide you don't want it.. 0:)

I think the rust is so even, it looks quite nice. You’d really kick yourself if the CLR or coke bath took away from the consistency.

 

I think it comes down to your personal preference, if you are okay with the rust- play it. If every time you look at it you think about getting rid of that rust, then it needs a bath!

 

In terms of grips, just don’t go too big- you’ll lose all the feel!
