The Travel Shaft unscrews in the middle, allowing your mallet to fit perfectly into a carry-on bag! The threads of the connection are long so it will not come unscrewed after hard play. The shaft is available in both round or oval in ladies and mans sizing and with traction or cushion grip. Additionally, you can have a color for the bottom grip. Example shown below. When purchased alone, they are $150,; when purchasing a mallet, add $50. Please email with your specific configuration requests.
