As Seen at Polo

Bamboo!

With so many players spending ever increasing amounts of cash on the latest polo-specific mallet materials, it’s a breath of fresh air to see something less hi-tech being utilised in the sport.

This mallet was created by one of our newest players, and served him well throughout an entire afternoon of throw in games. It’s light, simple to work with, cheap and easily replacable should it break. It will be interesting to see how it holds up over a few sessions.

    Could last a very long time if the hardware is mounted correctly, to big a screw or an improperly placed one will splinter the wood, but aside from that they are near impossible to break as far as the shaft goes, and it will kill almost any ski pole, resulting in some NA clubs disallowing them. I think they’re awesome though
