Thanks for the heads up, Paul! Even though I think I have enough mallets, I couldn't resist the price and ordered a pair also.

Did you get yours yet, Paul? I got mine today and I think they are quite nice! Nicely weighted and good for striking medium to largish gongs and for rolling on large gongs.  I've only tried them for a minute so we'll see over time if my opinion changes. ;) Thanks again for the hot tip!  8)

My mallets arrived today, and im happy with them.
My thoughts on them are:
Well made, with a good balance. The shaft is comfortable and i dont experience any slip as i hold them. Little contact noise with use, and i would say they weigh in at the same as a Olli Hess S186.
Some more for the bag!..
