Wood Mallets Fibercane Polo Mallet
These polo mallets are produced by one of the globally leading polo manufacturer. The unsustainable and dwindling supplies of the worlds manau cane from which traditional polo mallets are made, has only fuelled George Wood's determination to make a superior mallet. The deforestation and enormous wastage of cane in the selection process is just a part of it. The fact is, the majority of cane mallets being made today, are made from substitute species which simply aren't strong enough. The quality of cane mallets in getting noticeably worse each year.
Two years ago research and development program led us to try, first hemp and then silk fibers in the construction of the shaft in an effort to make the overall properties of the composite mallet more like a cane. Big mistake! Composites are so much stronger and lighter than organic materials, why make them less efficient? The latest shafts are better than canes in every physical aspect. The Graflite and the Fibercane is now the same mallet and are painted a distinctive cane color.
