This past spring I had GolfWorks replate a set of Titleist 690MB’s (circa 2010).  The chrome, however, doesn’t seem to be as durable as a set of Callaway X-Forged I’ve played for the previous 5 years.  The chrome on the 690’s is already showing more wear in 4 months than the Callaways.

Is the plating process for new clubs superior, or different, than plating an older set?  Would you explain the differences, if any, in plating a new vs. replating an old forging?
