Block mallet

Hey guys ,
Can you send some links or info on mallets your using. I have the ones that have the yellow fiber handle and the screw in rubber ends. If I had to guess i would say they weigh about 4 or so lbs. A buddy has an "older" one (i think it's older) that is also has a yellow fiber handle but it probably weighs 8-9 lbs...that's what I'm looking for,
Thanks,
Steve

I use the Trusty Cook 9 pound Sledge Head for walls, hands down best hammer I've ever used and they last for years.

Been using the Simplex 7 pound mallet for 3 or 4 years now. Awesome tool.

Steve the 9 pound Nupula hammer is the best, but it will hurt you after awhile. You can pick one up at STL hardscapes in fenton for the best price.

I'll look it back up. how long is the handle? Here is what I was looking for (on the right) doesn't look like much but it's heavy. Nupla says it might be 25 years old...apparently using lead shot is illegal now
