The Gryphon mallet blends carbon fiber, stainless steel and Black Walnut for power, precision and performance. The carbon fiber shaft is available in two ‘flex’ options, rigid and mid-flex. The full length EVA grip provides a firm yet ‘grippy’ feel. Not satisfied with a ho-hum single color grip, we added some zip to it your choice of 3 standard colors on the bottom 6". You also have color bands of blue, red, black & yellow as a subtle reminder of the playing sequence. Carbon fiber’s exceptional strength-to-weight ratio keeps the shaft weight to only 9 ounces. The remaining 80% of the mallet's weight is positioned in the head. That's where it’s needed most - where the mallet meets the ball.
American Black Walnut was selected for the head, prized for its dark beautiful grain. It's also ideal for croquet mallets. It is strong and light weight - perfect for optimizing peripheral weighting in wood heads. The wood’s natural beauty is enhanced with a unique inlaid sightline
The brass faces have been precision milled to create the exact weight for the mallet. The resulting peripheral weighting puts most of the head's mass furthest from the shaft's centerline. The effect reduces twist during the mallet swing - the reason for most miss-hits. The stainless steel faces are then covered with a tough carbon fiber plate.
This winning combination of the strong, lightweight shaft with a peripherally weighted head offers the right balance and puts more controlled power into your shots.
The mallet head measures 2-1/4” by 2-1/4” (57mm). Lengths are available in 10”, 11” & 12”.
