Why make a mallet so accurately:
To eliminate inaccuracy caused by striking face variation.
Hoop Maker Mallets guarantee the both striking faces of our alloy mallets are exactly ninety degrees to the centre line of the mallet. Why? Because with every degree of offset, a ball may be incorrectly hit by one inch over seven feet six inches - and that error is not the fault of the player.
Striking face 'offset' may occur at the time of manufacture, because wood changes shape over time due to consistent impact shock and moisture absorption, because Fibre Glass/Carbon Fibre 'compress shatters' over a period of time and/or because glues have been used.
All these possibilities have been eliminated in the manufacture of the Hoop Maker. There is absolutely no variation to the plane of the mallet and the Striking Face of the Hoop Maker. The Striking Faces will remain at ninety degrees for life. The materials used and the method of manufacture ensures a perfectly 'true' profile for the life of the mallet.
