Optional extras to the Basic Mallet

Shaft Types

  • 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
  • Carbon Fibre/Duplon (CF7)

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.

CF7 Shaft
  • Carbon Fibre/Duplon (CF8)

A full-length carbon fibre tube fitted with a lightweight octagonally shaped Duplon foam handle. This shaft weighs approximately 5 1/2oz (156g). All these shaft types are removable, rotatable or changeable. Duplon available in black or mauve.

  • Peripheral weighting

All mallets are weighted by inserting lead plugs into the head behind the end plates, thus placing the maximum weight at the ends of the head.

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 0.55ozs.

Both of the above options can be combined in one mallet.
