* CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, also known as the Washington Convention) is a multilateral treaty to protect endangered plants and animals.

Many of the timber types I have used in the past have recently come under the CITES jurisdiction and have now become very expensive (up to 300% increase in the past 12 months), so much so that some timbers are now unavailable.


Head Length and Width

The standard dimensions for a wooden head are 10" (25.4cm) long and 2 1/8" (5.4cm) wide. 11" (28.0cm) or 12" (30.5cm) head lengths are available and can be made to any width.


Head Shape

Most mallets are square in section but other shapes can be manufactured. The most common alternatives are;

  • Curved base
Boat shaped head
  • Rectangular section
Boat shaped head


  • Peripheral weighting

All wooden headed mallets are weighted by inserting lead plugs behind the end plates, thus placing the maximum weight at the ends of the head. Please specify your desired total mallet weight.

  • Adjustable weighting
Adjustable weighting system

This system allows the player to easily adjust the weight of the mallet adding or removing any number of six lead discs, each weighing approximately 0.75ozs. It is only available for mallets with a carbon fibre shaft. Please specify your required base weight which will allow a change of weight of +/- 2ozs.


Shaft Dimensions

A standard shaft length is 36" (91.4cm) with a cross section of 1" (2.5cm) x 1 1/8" (3cm) but any length or cross section can be made for a small surcharge.

  • Carbon Fibre Shafts

This lightweight material is extremely strong and is available with the below options.

  • Carbon Fibre/Wood (CF5)

An octagonal, hollow, straight-grained Pine handle fitted on the carbon fibre shaft. The handle is lightweight and very strong, giving the mallet a low centre of gravity with an easy swing and ideal for those players that prefer the feel of wood or a tape grip. This shaft weighs approximately 8oz (227g).

CF5 Shaft

This carbon fibre shaft has no Duplon grip on the lower section and has an aluminium socket. This shaft is popular with Golf Croquet players. This shaft weighs approximately 5 1/2oz (156g).
