The Brighton mallet has evolved from it's original round, white design of more than 20 years ago. As successful as our original design was (and still is), many players asked that we make them in a 'more wood-like color'. Thus, the Brighton II was born. Machined from a solid piece of tough, high density polyethylene, our best 'stop shot' mallet now sports a very appealing dark brown color. This material was chosen for its extremely durable striking surface that closely resembles real wood in its feel during impact with the ball and it's longevity. It's new color offers a superb contrast to the cream-colored sightline.
