They did it in the old days and the “real” polo players of the world are all about the bamboo. When will it hit the new generation of players? We have tried it here in Durango and have had some splintering results. Seems that for it to work, one must cure the weed just right. Smoking it is what that bamboo bike frame company does to toughen it. How and what kind of smoke is needed? Anyone know? The mallets I made of the weed were amazing during play. The mallet only lasted 1 game, but the action was so amazing, so sweet!

Christmas 2008 at the inlaws in Dallas, I was on a run and spotted a bamboo grove. I convinced Pops to make a late night drive to the spot and do an undercover cultivation. The results were mixed.
