All my BeCu Pings are polished, bought this way. They will patina over time if left alone. Beautiful putters.

There were very few becu Ping putters made, I owned one for awhile. Most of the copper looking putters Ping made were actually manganese bronze. Carry on....

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid
Ping G 4-U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 54, 58 SS
Grips NDMC +4
Odyssey Pro #1 black
Hoofer
ProV1x-mostly
ECCO Biom Hybrid 3

Unfortunately not true. There are tons of BeCu ones out there. Tons more of the Bronze, but from my talk with the Customer Support they made lots. The one's they didn't necessarily make TONS of were the BeNi heads...the Beryllium Nickel type.

 

The bronze ones are pretty easy to pick out once you know what to look for.

I think it has to do a lot more with the raw material costs of this exotic "red" metals having gone up, that has driven the market away from them. You may be right on the danger in manufacturing them but have to believe costs is the number 1 reason. You still see a few here and there (like tour model bettinardi's) but very rarely.

It's a real same, they are incredible. I was using my uncle's old anser the other week around their house and it was delightful.

It was a little too light though. I'm guessing it was 300-310g, with the shaft being crazy light. That being said, I'm still not opposed to a custom shaft and lots of lead tape on the bottom to help get it modestly weighed and a potential gamer.

I can't imagine cost being an overwhelming factor on the copper end. I think the highest copper has ever been was $4 / lb.. it currently sits at half that. Even if you assume 70% loss in milling or forging, that would be, what, a kg of copper, at most, per putter. $5? Even if we add in some sort of market defined multiplier of four, that's $20 in price difference

The beryllium used in the manufacturing process became known to cause cancer or have significant lung issues for the people that worked with it. Hence why they stopped using it in golf club manufacturing.

 

The feel on these clubs is unreal! I have a Beryllium Nickel Scottsdale Anser that i love and the feel is way different to any other putter i have used before. I am after a BeNi Anser 2 but these are rare, very rare! Even more so in Australia, so i will have to hold out till i am lucky enough to get one...
