To cap or not to cap? from Josh Meyland on Vimeo.
I stumbled across this little gem while browsing other polo videos on Vimeo.
Sweet little short film. I know personally I’ve gone back and forth between capped and uncapped. Pretty happy with uncapped at the moment but who knows what the future holds.
With the increasing availability of light, well thought out caps I’m sure more and more people will look towards them for those faster, more accurate shots.
Check St Cago, MKE Bike Co, TPL (Total Polo Laboratories), Eighth Inch and the soon to be released Northern Standard heads for a different range of complete, off the shelf, capped heads or removable caps to fit your existing head.

Straight out of East Van.
Some very cool ideas going on here. Its obvious a lot of thought has been put into the development of these. From the slimmed down caps giving you the surface area you need without the extra weight, to the honey comb, concave side wall and a new, proprietary attachment system. It will be interesting to see if you can use the head with your own shaft.
Really keen to try these out and follow the company’s progress. Always good to see players putting in the hard work to bring good ideas into fruition. Not only do products like these support the broader polo community but also serve to validate the legitimacy of polo as a real sport.
