Sorta updated prefab 1/8 Mallet head

Published on January 13th, 2011

Ran across this on 1/8″ rss feed.  Looks like 1/8 is committed to the “one size fits all” mold design they released last year.  Instead of rethinking the design they went with a stronger material.  Not sure what that is, but they say they are much better wearing.  Here is what they have to say

Last night I got the first photo’s of our new bike polo mallet. The design remains the same but the compound used is all new and much improved. The weight stays the same at 120g but cracking issues have been solved and the new compound is a lot stronger giving it a much longer life. We’ll release more details once we get them in stock. We’ll have a bunch down at the Desert Polo Invite at the end of the month. Stay tuned for our new tournament mallet that’s in the works too.

I’m interested in what the “tournament mallet” is and what makes it different from a normal one.  Regardless, get on it if this size is your thing!

    Hope they’re better than the blue ones..also that badge shaped cutout has FAIL written all over it.

    agree^^ this would be better if 2 things: 1 The badge cutout was gone and 2, the top extension was gone. And personally, while not a design flaw, the rounded side is not my thing.
