Horse already reviewed this mallet head a month ago while his black beauty was still all shiny and new. He’s all about shiny and new. Me I’m more about dirty, worn and old, because I am. He is also all about numbers, so if you need to know how much this weighs or how many micronanograms long is it, go read his post. I’m just gonna tell you the shit you need to know.
First decision you need to make about this mallet head is cost. No matter how great this head may be, if you have to think about how much to spend on a six pack so your kitty doesn’t have to eat out of your neighbor’s trash, then don’t even consider this mallet. No matter how great it is (and it’s pretty fucking great) that cheap or free material you used to use will still get the job done. Plus you can look down your nose at the chumps who spent all that cheddar on one mallet head and you got yours and had enough left over for many beers.
But if money ain’t no thing for you because you’re making trucker’s pay, then get this mallet. It is without a doubt, the Cadillac of mallets. Super light with no drilling, and it transfers your schwing power to that little ball so so well. I figure it has something to do with this Frenchie CNC engineer guy listed at the bottom of this page.
The mounting system did come loose one time, I added a dab o’ locktite and no further issues.
Plus after a month of play, which for me is roughly 15-20 hours, this head has held up incredibly well. I figure I can probably get another 2 or 3 months out of this position, then if i can get two more rotations out of this head the thing will last almost a year. so when you look at it like that, the pricetag is a little easier to swallow. Especially if you can get your group’s merde together and order a bunch to save on shipping.
