NEWS FLASH !! Coach's Glove Mallets Now Available in Softball Size Too
Each Coach’s Glove Mallet starts out as 2x12 lumber that must be cut and glued to make a mallet blank. The blank is then hand turned on a wood lathe to the mallet form. After sanding the CGM is ready to be finished by soaking in boiled linseed oil for a minimum of two hours and allowed to dry. During the following days, the CGM is hand rubbed with boiled linseed oil at least 3 more times and allowed to dry. This finishing process toughens the surface to provide years of service.
Hand crafted from start to finish. Coach builds these mallets to last. That's why he puts so much personal touch into each one. You will feel the difference the first time you slam it into the hand crafted leather of your new softball glove.
Not only can you use the glove mallet to break in your new glove, the design of this mallet is unique in that the handle is shaped so that you can use it to stretch and loosen tight or small finger stalls. Use it to reform the fingers of a mistreated old dry glove that was left in the rain. We all know leather tends to shrink when it dries. This tool can help bring that old friend back to life.
Coach carved his first mallet from a single, solid piece of firewood to break in his son's new baseball glove. He has polished and tuned his design a bit over the years and crafted a work of art to last.
Coach's Glove Mallets are now available in sizes for Baseball gloves and also sized for Softball gloves. The head of the baseball mallet is approximately 3 inches in diameter and is slightly larger than a regulation baseball. The head of the softball mallet is approximately 4 inches in diameter and is slightly larger than a 12 inch regulation softball.
