Recently I helped a friend put a brand new mallet together. I won’t name names but the shaft still required a drop-nut type of assembly, and the head didn’t come predrilled. I know there can be something cathartic about building your own mallet before a big tournament, but I felt like I was in the dark ages have to align a drop-nut perfectly, having to line up holes in the head so that the shaft sites at a perfect 90 degree angle.

Now that is has been a few months since the release of the Enforcer bike polo frameset, we wanted to share complete build pictures from each of the 6 sizes that we offer. I want to thank everyone who has purchased a frameset from us this far. We are actually down to only 14 frames left in the first run and we are beyond ecstatic for all of the support that everyone has shown us thus far. Remember that all frameset specs can be found HERE!

Straight from the mouth of Swallow’s Bike Polo: “After years of testing and analysis we have developed the ultimate shaft for pickup and tournament play. Light but strong, durable yet easy to handle over a day of play. This shaft is the ultimate all purpose piece of equipment. Coming with our well tested long taper to avoid dings and 7075 T6 extruded aluminium for increased strength, bend resistance and durability.”
They are on sale right now and you can pick some up HERE!
