So I play my TSi3 15 at 15.75 and was able to pick up a 16.5 to try it at 15.75. Want to see what it’s like closed face angle vs open face angle.

 

Anyway, got a great deal on this 16.5 head from local offer up since it had a couple smudges on the crown by the toe.

 

I’d like to see if I could buff it out.

 

Searched forums and saw some people recommending auto products for scratches. This doesn’t feel scratched and not through paint. It’s like the clear coat is just fogged up.

 

DIY instructions anyone?

 

Thanks in advance!

Same recommendation as for small scratches, automotive swirl / scratch remover.   Meguiars Scratch-X is my go to.

Let us see a picture after you try that stuff on there. I'm interested to see how that works since I feel like that's bound to happen to my TSi woods with one slip of my foot during the swing.

I use Malco rejuvinator on all my clubs, 29 bucks on Amazon. The stuff is amazing on almost anything and been using it for over 20 years in the car business. If the smudge is deep, use some medium buffing compound then the rejuvinator. Auto products work amazing on painted/coated clubs. If you need to get rid of some rust use PB blaster and 0000 steel wool.

That’s awesome too — appreciate it!

Most if not all of that should be removable with conventional scratch/swirl removing products, just don't be afraid to give it some elbow grease and make multiple passes. Anything more stubborn can be handled by something like Turtle Wax liquid rubbing compound (NOT the paste) which you can find at most Home Depots etc. I use that followed by the Turtle Wax Scratch Repair/Renew and it takes care of most problems.

Used the rubbing compound first; then the Scratch X; then for kicks I put some carnuba paste wax on it. It’s like a mirror now.

 

I’m going to put it in play tomorrow and with another sunny day in Seattle I may just need to put sunglasses on when I use this! 😎

Nice! Glad that worked out. The Turtle Wax liquid rubbing compound is great for TONS of stuff. It can take care of a lot of minor shaft wear marks, superficial and even slightly deeper crown scratches (multiple passes) and even works as a really solid adhesive/goop remover.

That's pretty impressive that it was able to remove the scuff marks.  Looks brand new!  Does anyone know if that same process will work OK on the carbon fiber parts of the crown as well?  I just got a new to me Mavrik driver and there are some scuffs/light scratches where the previous owner must not have had their headcover on and other clubs scuffed it.  Hoping to be able to get those out of the Carbon Fiber part like you were able to with the steel parts of the club.  I have some of the scratchX here at home, but wanted to check to see if people have used it on the carbon fiber part before going through the process.

I have used it on carbon fiber crowns with glossy finishes many times with success. Basically as long as the finish is a glossy finish it should work as for those clubs there is generally a clear coat that has been applied which can be buffed out. It will not however work for a matte finish at all.

@GoCards Yes, it will work on the carbon parts. They are covered in a clearcoat finish and that's what you are really buffing out.
