George Wood Evolution Croquet Mallet

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


36 customer reviews


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.

Coloured shafts: Due to limited space we usually keep in stock either the royal blue & tan or the new triple coloured red/blue/tan. Other colours are available as a special order, (all blue, all red, all tan or red & tan plus the beautiful new mustard colour). Please allow 3-4 weeks for special orders.

If you have a colour preference please state this in the order notes at checkout or contact us for further help.

All shafts have an 8 coloured band showing the order of play.

Measurement of the mallet is from the top of the shaft to the ground.

    Very disappointing that one cannot actually strike a ball on the lawns when purchasing a mallet from you.

  23. Malcolm Armstrong (verified owner)

    An excellent visit to the shop. Very professional and helpful advice. Fabulous mallets for myself and my wife.
    Well worth the visit to try different lengths etc.

    Only played one match and won so it must be OK. Surprised when asked for £288 due to price not inclusive of VAT which was a shock.

  25. James Death (store manager)

    Brian, We are sorry to hear you were disappointed in the price. When you first looked online, there was a glitch that meant all prices were showing ex. VAT. That issue was fixed several months ago now. We hope you get plenty of success with the mallet you purchased.

    The new Mallet purchased an existing Mallet, subsequently found to be 3″ too long for optimum fit / play. Both Mallets were to a high standard
