Removing your head.... (ouch !!) ...

When the time comes to remove your head (for travel or upgrading)

  • Undo the screw on the bottom about 5~6mm that's about 4 turns.
  • (Lefty~loosy)
  • Now find some smooth concrete (no not the kitchen lino) and ...holding the mallet by the top of the handle... jerk quickly downwards.
  • So that the head screw smacks into the concrete.... and the head keeps going.
  • Undo the screw fully and slide the head off the shaft.

If the handle won't come off... then the best thing is to give me a call

 

When the time comes to reassemble...
  • Give the spigot (the bit that goes into the head) a wipe with some anti corrosive like lanolin (Vaseline , Hand cream  or even sunscreen is ok)

  • Then slide it all together and reassemble with the bottom screw and your Allen Key

  • (Righty~Tighty)  1/4 Turn final

 

 

Can I start with a Horus head

then change up later ?

 

  • Your Horus is fully interchangeable with the CarbonX and the BlackBirds so you can upgrade whenever you are ready

 

How do I measure the length of a handle ?

Always measure from the ground.

If I ask "How tall are you?"... I bet you measure your height from the ground.

  • So... do the same with your mallet... measure from the ground to the top
  • You might be surprised how many measure from the top of the head.
  • I wonder if they measure their own height from the top of their shoes ?

 

 

He said the handle should come up to my belly button !

That would depend on several things...

  • What style do you play ? Solomon's, Standard, Irish.
  • Irish will be a shorter handle. (790~860) Most popular .840
  • Solomon's and Standard will be longer (often 890~1.050) Most popular .910
  • Do you stand upright ? Players of a certain age should avoid bending over.
  • Keep your hands to the top and together.
  • Notice there is a spare inch ~25mm in the two right hand photos.
  • Always measure from the ground.

 

He said I need a 3 pound mallet !

Ah huh... This is a carry-over from last century.. probably in the 70's and before when most mallets had wooden handles that were glued in. The mallets were weighed as a complete item... Handle and head all together. These days we tend to measure the weight of the head. 1kg=2lb 3 (and a bit) ounces.

  • The head is the bit that does the work. (Hammer and nail)
  • Balls weigh one pound (16oz) each.. 2 balls weigh 2 pounds
  • Handles don't really weigh very much these days.
  • Horus heads weigh ~2lbs, CarbonXtremes 2lb3oz, BlackBirds  Rainbows 2lb5oz
  • For G.C. go lighter (Horus or other "Light")
  • For A.C. go to 2lb3oz~whaterver rocks your boat.
  • What do I play with? AC & GC, 12.5" (310mm) 0.950kg. (just over 2lbs)
  • Most popular? CarbonXtreme 280, 1kg.

 

I want a handle shape .....

  • That is thicker~thinner~squared~shaped for comfort... What can you do for me?
  • I've put some videos on youtube that show how to do some of these things  
  • If that doesn't work, just give me a call and we'll have a chat.
