Coming soon - the Ultimate Mallet Review!


I've been wanting to do this for a long time, especially since the recent explosion of new heads on the market.  There's still a few packages in the mail of the newest models (coming from Montreal and Germany) and of course there's a few brands that simply didn't make the cut, but hear you me this will be the most complete (and judgmental) review you've ever seen.  No glad-handing here.  I've actually purchased every one of these (and more) because i don't wanna be beholden to anyone.  It's easy to take a free product and say 'yeah it's pretty cool' but that's not what we're gonna do here. 

Of course it'll also be a discussion about where we've been and where we're going.  As you can see above we're definitely trending towards single-capped, CNC'd ready to go heads, but it wasn't always that way.  All the way back in 2009 (which is like two decades in polo years) there was only one guy making capped mallets and i'm betting even he couldn't predict where we'd be here in 2013...


..so just for fun i'll be including this untouched, early model Lucky head (cue: it's not lucky it's st.cago) that's been sitting on my teammate Evan's shelf since Midwests in 2009.  Partially as a benchmark for the newer models and partially cause it's now a piece of history.  I'm hoping this review will be useful for not just newbs wondering where to start but even veteran players who don't wanna waste their money.  So if there's anything you think i should include or questions you want me to answer, feel free to hit me up at polovelobloomington@gmail.com and let me know!

  1. Will this be just reviews of the heads, or shafts/mounting hardware as well?

  3. Shaft review will come later. Too many companies are out of stock with their shafts and mounting gear keeps changing by the minute..

    and i didn't forget Eighth Inch- though i think we all already know what kind of "quality" their heads are.

  12. These shapes can be used to your advantage for
    getting the desired graphic shape to your railings.
    People are entitled to walk around with dangerous weaponry (a safety hazard)
    but have no serious defense against a government that becomes un-representative of the will of its people (our
    liberties at risk). The nagging, the back-biting,
    the jealous looks, the evils, the condescendence.

  13. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
