Sidecut Mallets


I'm convinced.

While waiting around to play at the Lock-In i made a sidecut into my new mallet. (aka "european cheater mallet") It lightens the weight and provides a perfect cradle for those behind-the-back-wheel moves. I can't flip the ball ("airmail") with it yet, but if i made the sidecut a lil' bigger and left more material on the bottom lip it'd be easy as pie. (I hear that's why the euros don't like 'em.)

Anyway, i think it's an awesome design so i made a bunch more. I've got a few extra if anyone (yeah, you) wanna try one out.

Best of all i painted them KENTUCKY CHROME!

Yeah, i'm classy like that.

  1. i don't know about this... i'm gonna question the legality even though there aren't necessarily rules against it.

  2. It's no more advantage than using a capped mallet or that oversized UHMW stuff. To each his own.

  4. there is a thread started on leagueofbikepolo about this, it seems the conclusion is to treat it the same as a ball joint on the end of the mallet. so not past half zach.

  5. I don't balljoint with 'em. In fact, i haven't even seen anybody bj the ball in about 6 months.

    The real advantage is ball control when you're moving fast up the court.
