Cringe.. lol I have a studio stainless from 2004 I gamed for 15 years and it still looks new. Refinish it and keep a headcover when in the bag. that's what they are made for. 

Just a word of caution on a Black Oxide finish.  Anyone who tells you they can do black oxide on stainless is mistaken and you will NOT be happy with the long term finish.  BOS has offered it and if y

I was always partial to the "you can't have a shotgun in here" episode.   I was thinking about BOS.

I'm open to all suggestions. I'm not picky at all. No crazy polymer finishes. Outside of that, open to everything.

Also, love the Battlefield Friends avi.

I'd suggest maybe BOS Golf, they used to do the original oil can finishes for Scotty but have a few finishes for stainless heads like black oxide, fools gold, or just bead blasted.

 

Also thanks I loved that series and the old BF games. I should have the Noob instead.

Just a word of caution on a Black Oxide finish.  Anyone who tells you they can do black oxide on stainless is mistaken and you will NOT be happy with the long term finish.  BOS has offered it and if you research threads, you'll find a consistent theme.  Stainless was not meant to oxidize and it does a great job of just that.

If you want the best selection of finishes, check out Liam at Embrace Putters.   He's been doing this for several years and is really perfecting his work, as well as getting some of the best actual finish vendors in the business.  VERY FEW of the refinish guys do their own oxide finishes and NONE of them have an in-house PVD service, no matter what they say.  Check out EmbracePutters on Instagram and I think you'll see something that you are going to like.

BONUS TRIVIA:  Liam grew up in the UK playing for the National Junior Team.  His alternate shot partner for a time was a young man who has a win or two on American soil.....and some long hair to blow in the Florida breeze.  I'd take a guy who understands the equipment he is working on, any day over a guy who just removes nicks from steel.

I'd go with a bead blast or fool's gold if you like it blingy (still a word, Gen Z?).  Both will give you a classic look regardless and maintenance will be easy...

Probably one of the more underrated lines in Scotty's line up... You got a gem there!

 

LabWorx Golf finishes are pretty good, had a buddy refinish his Scotty from there and looked mint!

Black oxide or just a bead blast and leave it alone. I'm not a huge fan of crazy looking torch finishes and wacky paint jobs.

Do you have a favorite between the 3?  Exactly the 3 restorers I was looking at

I had amazing experience with all. Norcal and Kyle do amazing remilling work. I think labworx just specialize in coatings. I can narrow the 3 down by location. Norcal is west coast Kyle is east coast and labworx is in the middle in Texas. I would say Kyle or norcal they both had great communication. 👍

As someone who does putter refinish (not quite to the level of Embrace), i totally agree with this. Black Oxide on stainless is a recipe for disappointment. I believe Logan Olson has achieved an oxidation of some sort on stainless but as i understand it, it appears to be a heat based oxidation, i.e. bake it for a number of minutes at a super high temp and form a surface oxidation, then torch, then quench. Nothing at all like a true black oxide/gun blue as you would do with carbon

Mehh.. it's a gamer. Jam it in the bag with no cover. The more chatter it gets the more putts it will make. I say let that dog hunt just the way it is.
