First look: MILK polo mallets
You're looking at the most advanced mallet in all of North America!
Travis and i have only been able to hit the ball around a bit with it but i can already tell it's like no other mallet i've ever played with. Yes it really is that light. The lack of holes gives it unique rebound and acoustic properties...meaning it's easier to trap a fast ball and the head makes an interesting sound when you hit it! Kinda like how ABS has that empty *kink* sound when you strike the ball, the MILK makes a sort of *boop* noise... it's weird, but neat. The outer diameter is slightly smaller than oversized UHMW most of us midwesterners use and the inner diameter is closer to that of an MKE head; nevertheless it's really easy to scoop with the MILK, though 180's and outside scoops are noticeably more difficult.
Real testing starts at pickup tonight. More to come.
...and a big thank you to the boys from Geneva!!
