The OW 7 is a Kerry style double ended beater, Stevie Moises calls it “A straightforward tipper for all levels and playing styles.” 9 mm diameter at the centre grip area tapering slightly outward to ends topped with 17 mm diameter ball shaped ends. At 24.5 cm long, it’s a few cm longer than the OW 14 and OW 15 tippers, and at 25 grams in weight, falls between those two. See the photo gallery for some comparison photos.
Olive wood is the hardest and heaviest wood native to Europe, with a natural lustre and beautiful markings in warm shades of brown, from pale creamy or sandy tones to deep brown or almost black streaks. The grain can be straight or sometimes burled, almost marbled looking. As olive trees grow in all the Mediterranean countries it is a sustainable and readily sourced wood, making it ideal in every way for crafting modern tippers.
