Need a replacement mallet handle for an Oakley Woods Croquet mallet? All 3 types are available. Here you will find the solid ash shaft replacement handles. If you're looking for aluminum or graphite (carbon fiber) handles, they can also be found in the mallet section of our online store. All of our mallet handles feature our exclusive Taper-Lock fitting that makes every handle we've ever made, fully interchangeable with every head. Every ash handle comes with a connector nut and hex wrench.
Ash shafts are available as 'ungripped' or with a cushion grip. Ash is preferred for striking tools for its resilience to impacts. The long fibers found in ash strengthen the bonds between adjacent fibers. This allows the wood to absorb more stress before any failures occur. The upper section of the handle is a 'modified' octagon that provides a firmer hold on the mallet. The lower section is round with a taper that provides just the right amount of flex and firmness. The cushion grip option opens up your choice of grip colors.
RECESSED & GRIPPED HANDLES
When our handles are to receive a cushion grip, the handle is recessed to a depth that allows the cushion grip to sit flush with the adjoining wood section above an below the grip. If a fatter handle is preferred, a non-recessed grip can be requested as a special order in the comments section of the order screen.
Ash handles are available in heights up to 38"(measured as the mallet height). If you need a taller handle, they are available in aluminum and graphite. Heights are measured from the ground to the top of the handle (including the mallet head).. The minimum functional height is about 26". Below that, the flat section becomes too short to be useable.
