The Evolution Mallet is a superbly balanced mallet that provides players with more power, while maintaining better control.
Milled stainless steel end plates provide peripheral weighting to an attractive Indian Sheesham hardwood and Sycamore head.
The main concept of the laminated head is to reduce the weight of the wooden section so that thicker metal end plates can be used, thus maximizing the effect of peripheral weighting. It also increases the stability of the head by having the heavier wood on the sides. For longer or lighter heads a wider central core is used. By re-distributing some of the mass close to the striking faces, the moment of inertia is increased. This makes the head more stable during the swing, particularly for making accurate rushes, long roquets, and hitting-in. Also such a mallet turns less when shots are hit off-centre.
George Wood only uses imported hardwoods which are certified as being sourced from sustainably managed forests. The timber is air dried in block form for over two years. The white central core is made from the sapwood of poplar or sycamore and this has an inlaid dark sighting line.
The standard head length is 10” in length.
The virtually indestructible 17 mm diameter carbon and fiberglass shaft is foam filled to minimize vibrations and they weigh an average of just over 10 ounces. EVA is a closed cell foam grip material being waterproof, comfortable and light. The standard is a traditional octagonal shape measuring 31 mm x 27 mm. All mallets are supplied with medium stiff shafts.
All shafts have an 8 coloured band showing the order of play.
