Argentine Tipa (Tipuana blanca) has been the world’s most popular timber for polo mallet heads for the past 30 years. The best Tipuana Blanca is grown in one particular province of Argentina, with only a few saw millers able to supply any quantity. Almost anyone who’s purchased heads from Argentina before will have experienced a high rate of overweight and reject heads.
Unfortunately the cost of Tipa from Argentina has recently more than doubled due to supply and demand.
