Fixcraft shafts have the same taper and straight section dimensions you have known and trusted since we first started, with compatibility for the upcoming FIXCRAFT CLEAT added to the tapered tip. The tapered end now comes M6 pre-threaded with a small notch. This however does not impede how you normally mount your mallet heads to your shaft. You can still mount with a fixnut, a wood screw, or however you are used to. Fixcraft only uses high grade 7075 T6 series 4 Aluminum.
Fixcraft shafts now come in 4 different annodized colors to choose from. This seems like a small feature until you try to find your gear in a throw in pile. More color options means more customization to your gear and that can be a time saver.
The LT ULTRALITE Bike Polo Mallet Shaft runs a 1.0 mm wall thickness. This is the strongest strength to weight ratio we offer and is the cornerstone of FIXCRAFT. This is the shaft we built our reputaion on, and it’s still our most popular offering.
The XT Xtra Tuff Bike Polo Mallet Shaft runs a 1.2 mm wall thickness. This is a heavier build for bigger players or players that get more physical on the court.

A few notes about mallet shafts for new players.
1. No mallet is designed to withstand direct shots against your bottom bracket, your front wheel or your tire repeatedly. Our mallet shafts aren’t, and our competitor’s mallets aren’t either. A clean shot does not include hitting anywhere on your bike. Ever.
2. All mallets bend in aggressive play, some less than others (the XT for example). Bend them back by tapping the bent part on your part of your handle bar where the grip is. NOT on the bare metal part of your bike.
3. The taper is the strongest part of the fixcraft pole because we don’t spin all the metal out at the taper. The aluminum wall is actually thicker in the taper. When building a diy mallet we recommend you try to keep as much of the taper as you can.
4. These are made out of aluminum to be light. Use common sense and you’ll be ok.
