Good but requires tweaking
As purchased the removable handle had an odd curve on its sides which did not match the uniform taper of the mortise in the head of the mallet. This was solved rather simply by planing. Also, be sure to use a chisel to create a small chamfer on the smaller edges (both top and bottom) of the mortise passing throgh the mallet head to prevent tearing out of the exposed end grain when removing and reinserting the handle. Otherwise it is a nice mallet.

the weight is good but the handel makes it flimsy hard to handel
A flawed beauty.
I really like this mallet. The only problem I have with it is a chunk of wood is splintered out of the edge of the hole where the handle exits on the grip end. A slight chamfer in the handle hole might have eliminated this damage prior to attaching the head to the handle. Otherwise it looks great and performs like a champ.
