come with 4 or 6 mallets.

few times a year, you may not want a heavy duty set. If you play
frequently, you'll want to check out our premium sets, as mallets can
wear down over time.

need mallets and balls that are weighted accurately, if not they could
experience miss-hits that they could avoid with a professional set.

especially if younger players are joining the game.
