It can easily be packed down for transport, and weighs under 2,5 kg. At your destination, fill it with wood pellets, sand, gravel, metal scrap or what’s available. It can weigh up to 20 kg!

The Pahlavandle™ XL is shipped in the standard length of  85 cm. However, you can customize it further by cutting down the tube to the length that suits you.

The choice of materials means we can keep the weight of the XL very light. This makes it ideal for people flying on holidays or trainers running workshops.

The Pahlavandle™ XL has a unique handle which makes it possible to be used both single and double handed. This heavy club design is based on mugdars and karlakattai from India, and is not a Persian meel. The perfect club to experience our Hanuman workouts.

The handle has a reverse taper and no pommel. This design provides a safe grip, while working your grip more actively compared to a club with a pommel.



We use recycled materials and sustainable in the production of the Pahlavandle™ XL. Therefore the actual look and color might be slightly different from the pictures on our website.

The handle is made of mahogany hardwood.
The wood is finished with high quality Danish oil as it provides a better grip and a more natural feel in the hands. You can care for your club by oiling it from time to time.

The core of the club is a hollow pipe made from reclaimed plastic. Do not fill the Pahlavandle XL with water, use only dry fillers: wood pellets, rice, sand, gravel, metal nuts and bolts etc…


  • Total length is 82 cm
  • Handle diameter at its thickest point is 42 mm
  • Barrel diameter is 110 mm
  • You will need a 13 mm (½ inch) socket wrench to tighten up the bolt securely in place. This tool is not included.

    Recently purchased the Pahlavandle XL and I’m absolutely loving incorporating it into my club collection and training…Well made and it swings beautifully. I like the feedback of the pea pebbles inside which adds a nice stability challenge. Right now it’s just under 20lb and I plan on adding some metal shot to make it heavier. (It’s super easy to adjust the weight)
    Would highly recommend adding this club to your tool box of strength!

    Beautifull product and really nice to swing!

    Love the feeling of the handle and if you are looking to save some space like me, it’s a no brainer to have such a wide range of weight with only one equipment.

    First, they’re actually pretty. The wood work for the top and handle is nice and has a good feel. You wouldn’t expect that from something like this.

    Overall, they’re 33″ long, and 4 1/16″ diameter and weigh a little under 4 lbs empty.

    If I did the math right (4″ inside diameter, 18″ working length), I’ve got .13 cu ft available. Using an article on making your own sandbag, that’s ~10 lbs of sand (14 lbs total), ~9 lbs of pea gravel (13 lbs total), ~4 lbs of wood fuel pellets (8 lbs total), ~3.5 lbs of rubber mulch (7.5 lbs total). It get’s crazier once you start adding lead or steel shot to the mixes.

    I filled both with rubber mulch and must have over filled them a bit before tightening them down since the scale says they each weigh 8 lbs.

    Swinging one with Hanuman 2 was pretty nice. The center of gravity and low density made it a pleasure to swing (compared to a steel club of similar weight that felt aggressive). But by the third round of exercises, it was an effort to swing. Doable, but hard.

    Tried them with a run through of Pahlavan rising and its too much. Then the 6 lb clubs. Too much.

    But it’s perfect for Hanuman and similar exercises though.

    I would recommend this to others and suggest that you get it as your capabilities increase. It’s not as pretty as an all wood club, but it’s versatile and the shipping won’t eat you alive.

    I just received today my XL, and I began immediately to workout with it empty. Your video, eight exercices with thick grip, is very helpful and the flow is very fun. Every week, I will add weight, and I will try to reach 10 kgs. I think the eight karlakattai exercices with 10 kgs will make a very good full body workout. Thank you for your product, it is a good invention.

    I originally purchased the XL to replace my meels when I travel. After going through the Heroic Level 1 Instructor Course I’ve made these my go to clubs. There is so much more to these that I initially thought.

  6. James Griffiths

    Without doubt one of my favourite bits of kit. It feels so nice to swing vs other big clubs I’ve owned. The XL quickly became one of the most popular Circuits at the Wild Training Gym.
