Though you would have to pay a pretty penny for this set, it is the ultimate choice built to last you a lifetime. You will literally pass it down to your kids. Oakley is a respectable croquet brand. What’s more, you can get a customized purchase if your order directly from the retailer. This way, you don’t have to break the bank for a super-costly pro-set.
The 6-player set has mallets with that are solidly built with indestructible polyethylene and shafts made of ash. The upper section of the mallets have an octagonal shape for the most secure and comfortable grip.
Moreover, the mallets utilize the Taper-lock fastening system that allows you to change the heads quickly especially when you upgrade.
Also features in the package are 6 polymer balls that weigh about 12 ounces and measure at 3-5/16-inch diameter. They are much tougher than the typical recreational balls in their build. They are made with a compressed cork center and a robust urethane jacket on the outside.
Because of the nature of their build, it will be extremely hard to displace the balls when playing. Additionally, they have equally tough goal stakes made from a naturally finished ash that makes them strikingly beautiful. Thanks to the steel ground pin, inserting them to the ground is completely hassle-free.
Along with the set, comes a 9-wicket rule book and instructions that will save the day if you are a croquet novice. You also get a durable nylon Cordura bag that you can use to carry the set around easily.
As if that’s enough, Oakman backs up this reliable set with a 1-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials.
Overall, this is a fantastic option to consider whether you are a beginner, an enthusiast, or a professional belonging to some club. It is conveniently priced and you can always get your order customized if you can’t afford the entire set.
