I've got this mid 90's Odyssey Dual Force 880 I've put back in the bag recently. If like to find a way of polishing it to make it look better. I tried metal polishing wading to no effect. Any one have ideas?

Outside of sanding it down, I would think a refinish would be necessary.

Thanks JB. Do you have an idea of what the average cost of a refinishing job would be? What would be the best way to find a local refinisher?

Do you know what material the putter is made out of?

I honestly dont. There is a member here named Hoosier Golfer that has restored tons of putters and can be a great help.

I've used BOS golf for a refinish job on an Itsy Bitsy and it was in the neighborhood of ~$100. Can probably get it cheaper than that depending what all you want done. They're in California, but their turnaround time was quite good.

I sure don't. The metal polish I have should have worked if it was unfinished bronze or copper. Some kind of finish on it that won't polish.

I used to have a dual force with the bronze/copper looking metal. You should try rubbing it with half of a lemon that's dipped in salt, and it should make the finish look better.

Make sure you give it a good scrub though.

How to clean/polish Odyssey Dual Force putter

I use a brass wire wheel in a drill to remove rust and patina from metal. It brass is soft enough that it won't score the metal too deeply. Use a light touch. For a high polish I like a hard cloth wheel with either diamond paste or buffing compound. You can get a mirror finish on the metal with enough patience. I dug out this old slot line putter last evening and cleaned up the face. I used sandpaper to start since the face was a bit out of flat, but finished up with the buffing wheel:

I would start with these, won't damage finish. I use it on my watches and wife's jewelry, they work wonders. Another option would be to make a paste with lemon juice and baking soda, cover, scrub with toothbrush, and let sit for an hour.
