50mm Square carbon fibre tube. The Carbon fibre has 6 laminate layers and is still very light and incredibly strong. The carbon has 12 thousand filaments in each strand!
The ends are all brass, welded construction, and are faced with an injection moulded Nylon/glass fibre. You will notice the ends are black. They are in response to senior players who prefer a touch of “feel”.
The “Flywheel” effect is maximised by the combination of the Carbon body and the Terminal weighting of the brass ends. Because the body is so light and the ends are so (relatively) heavy, the center of gravity of each body half is approx 20mm in from the striking face.
The 50mm sq format is very kind round the hoops and the “Sweet Spot” is maximised.

The revolutionary square handle design, makes gripping the mallet very easy and “squares” the player so you hit the ball straight.
The Star Mallet has been developed over two years of design and testing in Croquet Association and Golf Tournaments.
This has resulted in a mallet which weights 3lbs(1.4Kg), a preferred weight for competition play.
The weights are specially situated to provide a “lively” mallet head which eliminates “bounce back” when the ball is struck, leading to smooth straight shots.
The all wood construction eliminates any moving parts and therefore maintenance is minimal.
The point where the handle connects to the mallet head is very solid and provides no flexibility; this has proved to be a tremendous plus for the Star Mallet, as the shot is executed the way you play it with no extra movement from the design.
The all-weather grip eliminates any problems handling the mallet in wet weather.
The head design provides tremendous forward spin when you follow through with your hoop shot enabling you to make hoops more easily. Also works extremely well for jump shots.
The forward spin produced by the mallet head, tends to move the ball you are jumping back from the hoop rather than going through for the opponent.
