Can you get Brian Walsh hurls in the 6 counties :-\ ?
There is a northern agent for them i think they work out of dunloy but i havent been able to get in touch with them.
A shop local to me does the star, declan barron and used to have canning before they stopped, i dont like the declan barron hurls the shaft feels very rounded to me on any ive lifted.

His number is 07517 253589

Thanks kidder, ive tried it a few times and left msgs to no avail.

Thats a strange business model  :-\

is that not how all business' operate now.
As for ASH Die back ive been hearing about for about 30 years now  are any Hurleys made from Irish ash now?
Did Canning hurls not recently stop production because of the difficulty Im obtaining Ash?
Yip, canning no longer making hurls. Ive seen another hurl recently where its ash but not the root and then a coating over it, sand quartz on the bs to apparently improve grip and striking, an eco hurl i think it was called, did see a pic once if a keeper with a sanding disc attached to his bs lol.

Those ecohurls are manufactured in Monaghan. There are bamboo sticks out there too and various composites.
