A Note on Our Grip Choices (opens in new tab)

Considered by many to be the finest hurls in Ireland, the Dowling family has been handcrafting hurleys in Kilkenny since 1957. Now in their third generation of hurleymakers, Star hurleys are still made from 100% Irish ash. Hand finished with a spoke shave and sanded to a smooth finish, you can rest assured that every Star hurley you use is deserving of the distinctive stamp that it bears!

These hurls have a Kilkenny-style profile.  Due to each hurley's hand-crafted nature, it's hard to say exactly what you'll get (you can request weight and balance if you'd like in the comment section during your checkout process and we'll try to accommodate) but generally the Kilkenny hurls are slightly lighter and thinner (specifically through the handle) than our L'Ash hurls, which are a Wexford profile.  Anecdotally, the Star hurley I play with is 560 grams gripped while the L'Ash hurl I play with (which is, admittedly, an absolute unit) is 680 grams gripped.  They're both 34"s.  Because of their distinctive thin-but-wide handle profile, the Star hurls have more flex to them during routine play.  The thicknesses of the bas on each is nearly identical, with the Star hurls having a more pronounced toe while the L'Ash hurls have smoother curves throughout and an ever-so-slightly larger bas.  The Star hurls also have a slightly longer, more pointed handle butt than their Wexford counterparts.  

UPDATE:  We're still waiting on a number of hurls to complete the existing pre-orders.  Those will still go out first as soon as we get them in stock (they're primarily 20-32" as well as all GKs).  We're going to shut off pre-orders for now in an attempt to build up our own inventory moving forward.
