The   Rainbows have arrived....

& improved Rainbows   

Derived from the success in design and construction used in the BlackBirds. They benefit from the same high moment of inertia and the hardwearing finish.

So What ?..  Nearly all the weight in the head is at the ends... SO.. if you play with soft hands and let the mallet do the work... they stay on line... Ah huh.

The colour is the same as on your colored window frames.. Bonded to the aluminium and tough as goats' knees.

The naked brass ends give maximum energy transfer to the ball/s (and they look good too).

  • Lengths

  • 254mm (10"), 280mm (11") most popular, 303mm(12").

All the same price.

Normal weight is 1 kg. (2lb 3 1/2oz). The longer ones pick up 30gm and the shortest loses 30gm. 

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


TaperedOval Grip 

"The Creator" in Her wisdom made our hands to grip an oval shape.. Many tools that have evolved over thousands of years are shaped to make best use of that.

E.G. A carpenter's hammer. Sledge hammer handle...... the common theme is the oval shape that gets thicker towards the end of the tool. The thickening at the end means that, if the tool starts to slip, then the thickening handle will re-set the grip... Well done.

Previously, two of my handles  had those properties..

HammerGrip... perfect for the top hand and bottom hand "goes along for the ride"

SideFlat .... Good for Standard and Irish.. fingertips lie on the flats

TaperedOval Grip combines the benefits of BOTH..

The extended oval shape means that there is an place for your bottom hand AND those previous flat sides sharp corners are gone.

T Mushrooms    IF you play with:-

  • Soft hands

  • Solomon's

  • Arthritis

  • Tender spots on fingers~joints

Then you will love the T-Mushroom  This is an add-on to the top of your mallet and it takes all the strain out of having to GRIP (strangle) the handle.

The  Mushroom allows the top of your hand to nestle at the top of the handle without any effort.

The foam is soft-ish and is a closed cell. Meaning that it won't absorb water or sunscreen. SO if it gets a bit grubby from sunscreen... you just give it a wash in the kitchen sink. It is the same foam as the handles but a softer grade.

Comes complete with an Acrylic support plate (and screw) 

 Order your Mushroom with your handle and it comes already fitted..


QuickLock Lower CarbonF...CarbonTyphoon...CarbonRigid...

Tip.. Just like the heads... you can mix'n match your QuickLock handles. Have your favourite upper then swap to a Typhoon lower for G.C. and then back to a CRigid or CarbonF for A.C.

Normal Lowers have full length foam protection and the Typhoon is naked.

QuickLock Lowers are supplied with a QuickLock  Combo key Order your upper as well

 Righty~tighty.... Lefty~loosy...  1/4 turn is all you need.




QuickLock ComboKey  improved

The QuickLock handles have been very successful and the new ComboKey has both Allen keys for the QL and the larger screw that holds the Head~Handle together. Both now live in a common metal tube, and they come with a carabina so you can clip it to your mallet bag.

Remember Righty~tighty.... Lefty~loosy...  1/4 turn is all you need.


Hoop Setting 1.

  • Tool free adjustment

Hoop Setting 2.

Digital Caliper

  • For confirming hoop~to~hoop clearance/s .
  • With the Australian balls, 93mm is pretty much the sweet spot.
  • Combine these with the Digital Ball Gauge  to find the largest ball easily.
  • Many tournaments specify "Largest Ball + 1/64" ( or 1/32)". That would be easy if balls were spherical. At this point in time I've never found a ball to be (totally) spherical.
  •  I have about 12 digital calipers/gauges in Terminator Central and this one is the best. They are very good price performance) and beautifully made in metal not plastic.
  • Includes a spare battery... get more from the $2 Shop.
