I have played with great success with the Morford "HUNTER" Mallet including the 2010 MacRobertson Sheild, beating (now #1 in the world) Robert Fletcher.
I have had my best season with the Morford Mallet because it is perfectly balanced and well weighted for my game. I used the "HUNTER" to win 6 out of 6 National titles in 2012 and many more to come.
The wide mallet face and extra-large sweet spot produces great results even when I hit off-center on my roll shots. The resilient wood is extremely durable thanks to the precise construction and I have not so much as loosened the brass face in almost 3 years of heavy hitting, world travel and wear and tear.
I recommend Morford Mallets to anyone I teach not just because of the great Mallet, but because Bob has shown the determination to follow a customer's vision until they are entirely satisfied with his beautiful creation.
See you on the lawns, Ben

I contend I would not have as good results with any other mallet I own. Some of it could be placebo but I think the very wide striking surface, the bottom heavy weight keeping the mallet from wavering laterally and the shaft being so rigid and thick so as to prevent torquing gave me this many successful shots. The one dreadful shot was one where my feet were not aimed correctly and the swing went way to my right.
This mallet feels great, it is gorgeous and crafted to the highest quality.

Blake and his father Justin won First Place Doubles in the Western Regional Golf Tournament 2018.
Blake won second place playing singles against Ben Rothman. Both play Morford "SIGNATURE" mallets.
Blake is a Protege of Ben Rothman starting when Blake was 8 years old.
Blake started winning tournaments when he was 11 years old and currently plays in 1st Flight and some cases OPEN Flight winning against several National players.
Blake also likes to work with Bob
(the mallet man) in his shop.
Dear Bob, what a work of art your mallet is. The wood is really beautiful isn't it?
I haven't shown it to many people yet, but those I have are blown away by its looks. But more important to me of course is the feel of the mallet in my hands. I always look for that indescribable "feel". Are you a Harry Potter fan? "the mallet chooses the player, not the other way around"...and my mallet has a lovely "clunk"...with the mallet absorbing most of the vibration/impact and NOT my arms!
(this by the way, is what I dislike about carbon fiber heads).
I am glad I didn"t choose a lighter weight, as on my lawn it is just right. My acid test is whether or not I can, from the south boundary directly in front of H1, load H2 well and hold in front of H1.
I am also glad I chose the 2"x2 1/2" face...which seems just right for hampered shots around the hoop.
Rushing and long roquets have been excellent.
I spent about five hours with my new Morford over the weekend-artificial turf, cold, windy, etc. It plays beautifully.
As I noted previously the Morford has a wonderful feel-good feedback from the strike, but nevertheless nothing wispy about the shaft. With respect to feedback I am remarking about both the tactile-how the strike feels in my hands-and the aural, your mallet sounds good! Not the disconcerting "clank" or "thud" of other mallets-just a nice resonant "whack".
It is also a very powerful mallet (probably due to shaft and the weight in the head)-long rolls and drives work especially well. It will play wonderfully on our lawns in Central Park this summer as new grass has been planted (a mix of rye and bent) and will not be cut as short as in previous years.
Again terrific work! Will keep you posted and all the best.
I won the 2015 Canadian Open Championship with a Morford Mallet!!
Hi Bob just wanted you to know that I won my first tournament playing with your mallet and lowered my handicap.
I'm sure the more I play with it the better I will perform. It created some interest here in Florida.
Thank you Bob and thank you for the magnificent mallet. The guys I play with regularly are amazed at how much the mallet has improved my game. The head feels heavier than my carbon fiber mallet and the ball come off it softer. I changed my grip and swing with more wrist cock and the results are astounding. I stuffed only one wicket in the last 3 games. The mallet has taken me to a new level of skill.
Tim does not get to play as much as he would like, however he is one great player. Tim designed the original CNC mallet head and programmed my CNC machine to produce the carving.

Ron, along with Ben Rothman encouraged me to start the mallet business.
