One mallet handle warped before starting 2nd game.

Also, the carrying case is so small that it won't hold more than four of the clubs assembled and all the other parts of the set.

So the little plastic piece broke and the handle then could not screw into the head.

I bought this set for Christmas 2011. It looked cheap upon taking out of the box. I should have returned it then because it didn't have the hammer that was supposed to be included, but I needed it for the under-the-tree stuff. I waited until spring to set it up and play. Holy bowel-movement--awful. The wood is too light and has no 'feel' to it when you grip it. The wickets are far too flimsy, the paint is third-rate, and to cap it all off, the carrying case/bag--whatever they want to call it--is too small to fit the mallets once you assemble them. After one day, the white caps on the mallets are already looking like they're a season old. You should pass on this item, and probably anything else this company makes. I'll recap: NO HAMMER, FLIMSY WICKETS, LIGHT WEIGHT WOOD, BAD PAINT JOB, CHEAP PLASTIC, AND A CARRYING CASE TOO SMALL TO FIT ASSEMBLED MALLETS. I am so disappointed in this, I can't believe it. I would rate it with zero stars, but they won't let me do that.

I don't know what it is about croquet sets - you can either get "very cheaply made" or "absurdly expensive". I think most of us have probably grown up with the former and have no need for the latter.

This is an OK set. We've had it for 4-5 years now and play a handful of times every summer. The wood is very light but that's pretty standard. The end caps of the mallets have held up fairly well with only a couple starting to tear. One of the mallet handles broke out of the head - there are these cheap plastic pieces attached to the handles with screw threads on them, rather than the threads being in the actual wood. So the little plastic piece broke and the handle then could not screw into the head. I used this as an opportunity to reinforce all of the mallets as this plastic piece was bound to fail on all of them eventually. So I drilled some pilot holes and put a screw through the bottom of each mallet head into the handle, and glued each one with Stick Ass Glue. Now they're all completely secure.

Anyway, the balls are fine - standard plastic croquet balls that can take a beating. The wickets are exactly the same as every other set I've ever had - white painted wire.

So this isn't bad, but the quality isn't exactly inspiring. It's lasted better than I thought it would. THis is probably comparable to every set in this general price range.

I like the vintage styling of this set. The stripped balls (rather than many of the solid balls I saw in many sets) are easier to see on the lawn. The mallets are a little difficult at first to thread when putting together. It is handy to have the directions for game play right on the carrying case. All in all, it is an attractive set for a good price.

The mallets are not heavy or dense enough for proper weight to make contact with ball when striking. The wickets are all a little thin and should have more strength.

Not a bad item for the price. I would suggest to put some clear shellac on the threads and tighten ! Won't work loose that way and will make the joint a little more solid, But remember, you can't un-screw them either.

This is a nice set for the kids to use as well as the adults. I'll see if anyone is really interested in playing before spending a lot of money so this was a good choice.

family enjoys playing croquet. Only issue we have is one of the balls was caked in mud/dirt. All other components were new. Wanted to send it back, but the children wanted to play. Wont buy from this company again.
