This week, one hot topic has been about which type of wood is the strongest and most durable as a wood shaft. Several people have already weighed in with their preferences, which would you choose?

Hello for sometime I have been looking at getting a good wood shaft for the fall box lacrosse league, but I ran into some problems right away. Both HIKSTIK and Blackfeet Lacrosse make lacrosse shafts with different woods from common ash from Blackfeet, to exotic woods like apê wood from Hikstiks and their more common hickory shafts. My question boils down to what is the strongest wood a person can buy. Factoring weight in doesn’t matter to me, I play long pole the rest of the year.
What do YOU think? Do you prefer bamboo over ash? Hickory over ash? Or does any sort of hardwood work great? Don’t just sit there, swing away!
