CarbonXtreme's

Designed to give you maximum performance by putting the weight right to the ends while keeping the body a combination of light-weight and strength...

So what ?   Good question !!! 

Remember in the 4th form "General Science"...(year 10)

"An object in motion tends to remain in motion (in a straight line) unless acted upon by an external force".. Here endeth the lesson..

SO.. Play with soft hands and let the mallet do the work. (where did you hear that before) These Terminators have a very high "moment of inertia" so they will stay on track as long as you don't strangle the handle.

The Brass ends are faced with an injection moulded Nylon/FiGlass composite that will give you just a bit of "feel". Think of these as "Tyres on a car". They are super tough and you can replace them after a few years. Because these are a normal wearing point they are not part of "warranty".  Kits available.

WARNING...

 These Xtreme's  are just that.. Extreme...

  • Body is 2.5mm Carbon laminate.50mm square) thinner and lighter than the aluminium Rainbows.(3mm)
  • Ends are slightly heavier (compensating for the lighter shell)
  • Increased moment of inertia
  • Striking faces are 60/40 Nylon/glass fibre to give the little bit of feel
  • These are the "F1" of croquet mallets.

So ?? you should get an additional 3%~5% advantage... But Remember.....

If you treat your "F1" badly....  kiss your bottom goodbye as you head into the Scenery.........

Most issues arise when "Smashing the skin off the ball".... usually with the bottom edge...

So it is a good thing they have (my) Lifetime Warranty

--------------------------------------------------------

BlackBirds and  Rainbows

Exactly the same thinking for terminal weighting and high moment of inertia. (GOOD)

The difference is that BlackBirds and Rainbows have an aluminium body that is very tough. They are powder coated for protection and colour finish.  (to make the girls/boys look)

Striking faces are natural brass for maximum energy transfer.

The brass head ends are identical to those in the CarbonXtremes (the Xtremes have an additional Nylon/Glassfibre striking face)

They are virtually indestructible...  No glue... No Screws

Yes you can have Nylon/Glassfibre striking faces...just add them to your order... for that "little bit of feel"

Horus  Egyptian inspired...

  & Improved Faces  Horus.. the (good) Egyptian Falcon God of the sky.

  • These are lighter than other terminators. Designed with golf Croquet in mind where you are (usually)playing just one ball..
  • They are under 2lbs so you can play AC with them BUT there are better and easier options for that.

 Horus Heads look like a block of wood ??

  • They clearly have a timber look...BUT/AND.. the good stuff is all inside and hidden.
  • This Cutaway shows how there is a large chunk of lead weighting hidden behind the striking face. This weight (at each end) gives the Horus some of the same properties of its big brothers. Terminal weighting that helps to keep them online.
  • Double Nylon/Glassfibre striking faces are Tougher Traditional Tufnol AND they don't absorb water.
  • Those big stainless steel screws go through the first face and the face/screws bond/unify the timber/lead-weight/end...then the additoinal Nylon/Glassfibre end-face tidies up the whole thing.
  • Your Horus is fully interchangeable with the CarbonX and the BlackBirds so you can upgrade whenever you are ready.

QuickLock.. QL

For traveling and convenience. Especially good for long handles, AND players who have not stopped growing. When they need a new Upper handle it is super inexpensive. Remember to order the 2 parts, a QL Upper AND a QL Lower

You need to order a QuickLock Lower in either CarbonF or CarbonRigid...or CF-Typhoon then order a QL Upper in the grip shape you want.

Perhaps you love the Upper grip that you have... AND/BUT you want a QL-CF-Typhoon lower for playing G.C. (in the wind) and a full foam QL-CF-lower for AC... good thinking.

& Improved T SuperClamp

Traditional clamp with some good innovations.

Tool-less adjustment and good value.

The "Spacer" is pre-set to 93mm and is marked with 3 dots..

 To adjust the spacer:-

  1. Loosen the lock-nut (no tools needed)
  2. Extend or Reduce the spacer (bolt).
  3. Tighten the lock-nut (probably step on it)

T Digital BallGauge.

 Find the largest ball quickly and easily at minimum cost because when you host a major tournament.....

  • The Tournament Referee will want to get the balls into sets related to size
  • Size is measured across the widest axis.
  • Balls are measured to find that width.
  • BLUE are sized biggest to smallest
  •  RED   """""
  •  BLACK   """""
  •  YELLOW   """""
  • Lawn 1,  Biggest of each colour.  Lawn 2,  Next Biggest of each colour. and so on....

 

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------

T Digital Caliper is used to quickly and easily check hoop size... (and is used with the ball gauge). Forget about feeler gauges and "the biggest ball".

With the Australian balls, 93mm is very close to International Standard

Easy to check at approx ball centre height

Bear in mind that 1/64" is 0.4 of a mm (quite a lot)
