PHC Mallets are produced from both local and imported hardwoods
The heads have internal periphery weighting to ensure a smooth swing.
There is a contrasting colour sight-line inlaid into the body.
The ends are produced from Tufnol which is a very hard wearing reinforced phenolic resin
The shafts are produced from either aluminium tube or carbon fibre tube. There is a lightweight wooden sheath over the top portion of the shaft that is covered with a Polyurathene grip tape. The bottom portion of the shaft has an EVA (sponge) covering. The shaft is fitted to the mallet head by means of a tapered nylon connector which mates with a tapered centre hole in the mallet head. With this method of construction, the customer can easily change either the head or shaft should they want to make a change thus halving the cost of a change. This also allows for a North-South shaft orientation or East-West or anything in between. The nylon connector reduces the amount of shock transmitted from the mallet to the wrist and arms. If preferred, an aluminium connector can be ordered for a stiffer feel.
I generally carry between 50 and 60 mallets in stock, so the chances of having a mallet in stock that meets your specifications, is very good.
The latest range includes the Victa mallet. There are 2 cutouts taken from close to the centre of the head, thus reducing the weight in the centre and then adding additional weights to the ends in order to increase the peripheral weighting resulting in a finely balanced mallet. They are mostly produced by laminating between 5 and 7 layers of wood, giving it an attractive finish and a very strong head.
