The dudes at Eighthinch have come through with a solid second version of their polo mallets that hit the shelves last year. There were reports of the mallet heads not standing up to what people were dishing out on the court. On the surface the mallets looks the same but structurally are more sound being made with a more durable compound. Looks like the tightened up the area were the screw mounts to the shaft as well to keep it from slipping. Whats really cool is these guys are covered by a $5 replacement plan…broken or well used mallets can be sent back for a new jam with only $5 to cover shipping. I dig it.
