PFC HOOP MAKER CROQUET MALLETS

Less effort for greater accuracy 



THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN MALLET DESIGN AND STRIKING FACE MATERIAL IN 40 YEARS


AS A RESULT OF 

 TODAY'S COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY AND  TWENTY FIRST CENTURY MATERIALS, 

 ALL PFC MALLETS HAVE INCORPORATED

TWO SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS -

 IN  MALLET DESIGN/MANUFACTURE 

AND STRIKING FACES .


   BOTH IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF PFC HOOP MAKER MALLETS AND 

OUR NEW 'CF' (CARBON FIBER SHEATHED) MALLET RANGE 


2015 CAD TECHNOLOGY  USED IN ALL PFC MALLETS

After 35 years of making the finest precision instruments used in extremely accurate measuring and medical applications, I just had to apply today's manufacturing techniques in the manufacture of all my mallets to make the finest croquet mallet I am able to manufacture.


Please let me explain


#1.     THE REPLACEMENT OF THE AGE OLD CONCEPT OF PERIPHERAL WEIGHTING

21ST Century Computer Aided Design manufacturing techniques have resulted in the use of impact transfer technology - in PFC mallets since 2015 - and  the use of alloys not dreamed of 20 years ago. This has resulted in mallets that actually contributes to the distance of travel of the ball (without the need to use heavy weights at each end of the mallet).

The mallet even transfers impact shock away from the handle and back to the striking faces accentuating 'feel'.



THE CHOICE OF STRIKING FACE 

IS YOURS



 #2.  THE USE OF THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY (2015) IN STRIKING FACE MATERIAL


You have three choices in striking face material:

Conventional BRASS ,  SYNTHETIC BLACK or ZELATRON (the very latest (2017) technology).


informatin on ZELATRON:

Designed and manufactured in 2017, ZELATRON's slightly softer surface provides significantly better 'grip' on the ball and  'feel' of the impact with the ball thereby enhancing accuracy of each shot. You feel much more in control of the stroke.

ZELATRON's 'grip and feel'  also enables more reliable ratios for rolls and passing rolls and better control of 'jumps'. 

ZELATRON is the first significant improvement in striking face material in at least 40 years.



PFC HOOP MAKER MALLETS


At PFC Hoop Maker we are aware of the need to provide a mallet that is easy to use , that places the least demand upon hands and wrists, that is perfectly balanced, that provides better accuracy and will not distort or take up moisture for life. 

All these aims have been achieved in our patented design, computer controlled  manufacture,  all alloy PFC Hoop Maker mallet.


THERE ARE 13 PFC HOOP MAKER MALLETS TO CHOSE FROM


STANDARD 9.5/8" (24.5cm) MALLETS    are available as follows:


Black Synthetic Striking Face Standard Mallets are available in two weights:  2lbs, 14.2ozs. (1.305kg.) and  

LIGHT WEIGHT 2lbs. 5ozs (1.049kg.). 

are $490.00 plus $25.00 posting and handling to anywhere in Australia.



ZELATRON Striking Face Standard Mallets  -are available in two weights,  2lbs 14.2ozs (1.305kg.), and   

LIGHT WEIGHT 2lbs. 5ozs. (1.049kg.).

The ZELASTRON Striking Face mallet is excellent for Association, Golf Croquet & 6 Wicket American Croquet players.


Brass Striking Face Standard Mallets are available in two weights: The heavier mallet weighs 3lbs, 5ozs (1.502kg.)  -  and the lighter 2lbs. 14.1ozs  (1.305kg.) 



PLEASE LET ME BE CLEAR 

 

COMPETITION MALLETS ARE 11" (279mm.) OR 12" (304mm.) LONG. 

MOST PEOPLE FIND COMPETITION MALLETS ARE EASIER TO USE AND MUCH BETTER 'AROUND HOOPS' AS THE ADDITIONAL LENGTH ASSISTS IN CLEARING BALLS LYING CLOSE TO HOOPS


ANYTHING SMALLER IS ONLY A STANDARD MALLET


COMPETITION 11" (28cm) MALLETS    are available as follows:


Black Synthetic Striking Face  Competition mallets are available in two weights: The heavier mallet weighs 2lbs, 14ozs  - (1.305kg.) and the lighter mallet weighs 2lbs. 5.1ozs.(1.049kg.).   


ZELATRON Striking Face  Competition mallets are available in two weights:  2lbs. 14.1ozs (1.305kg.) and 2lbs. 5ozs. (1.049kg.) 

The ZELASTRON Striking Face mallet is excellent for Association, Golf Croquet & 6 Wicket American Croquet players.


Brass Striking Face Competition mallets are available in two weights: The heavier mallet weighs 3lbs, 5ozs (1.502kg.) -  ,  and the lighter  mallet weighs 2lbs. 14.2ozs. (1.305kg.)


THE NEW 'CF' (CARBON FIBER) RANGE OF MALLETS WITH INTER CHANGEABLE HEADS


The CF range of round mallets with inter-changeable striking faces (both Brass and ZELATRON in the same package), 11" (28.0cm). The Brass Striking Face model weighs 2lbs. 14.9ozs    and    the Zelatron weighs 2lbs.14.9ozs OR 2lbs. 6.4ozs. (this weight can be changed). 


With choices of any handle length, shape and cover, and the ability to halve the length of the handle if you travel, we believe the PFC Hoop Maker Mallet are the most user friendly mallet on the market for all ages and all levels of croquet players.



With today's computer technology PFC mallets completely remove the 200 year old concept of peripheral weighting.


This has been made possible because of today's technological advances in Alloys and design concepts combined with Computer Aided Manufacture, and the use of quarter of a million dollar milling machines.


"The results of the use of today’s technology is truly amazing.  You will find you will not have to hit the ball so hard to achieve the same result.  I never cease to be amazed at the performance of my mallet. (Peter Coles - owner).


Because there is no wood, glue or carbon fibre in our mallets, all PFC mallets heads carry a


 5 year parts and labor head guarantee

excluding handle covers


 (Handle covers will be replaced for $20.00 each time for the life of the mallet + return postage)


 Details:


The aim of the mallets construction is to manufacture a precision instrument that will not change its dimension or shape or character FOR THE LIFE OF THE MALLET (due to moisture absorption or fibre 'shatter') and as a result 

WILL BE TOTALLY PREDICTABLE FOR LIFE.


To achieve such accuracy, each PFC HOOP MAKER is made from our formula of alloy and is formed from one piece of alloy using an extremely sophisticated computer controlled milling machine.


The system also forms the impact heads (our formula of polymers, nylons, ZELATRON elements or brass alloy) during the one process which become part of the alloy head by the use of a sophisticated membrane, resulting in a clean impact and maximum feel.


The reason for this construction process is to:

1.  Manufacture a mallet that places the least demand upon fingers, hands and wrists.

2.  Enable the highest manufacturing precision possible.

3.  Achieve the most complete balance attainable.

4.  Assist in a ‘groove’ swing by achieving near perfect balance.

5.  Is completely predictable as it will never loose it's shape.

Hi Pete,
Thought I'd let you know how much I enjoy using my new PFC Hoop Maker mallet.  As I've lost strength in my shoulders I'm finding the new lighter mallet easier to use.  My length of court roquets are now more successful as I'm able to hit longer distances without the strength needed previously.  The balance of the mallet is also excellent which has made hoop running more enjoyable and successful.  Overall the PFC Hoop Maker is a joy to use.  The fantastic look of the mallet is also a talking point with much interest from croquet players asking questions and for the web site address. All the best Brenda, Mount Sugarloaf, New South Wales, Australia
