When Nike goes in, they go in big, and aim to dominate. Their cleats and uniforms can be seen on lacrosse fields near and far, and their gloves, pads, heads, and shafts are showing up more and more. Where does Nike’s Vapor Lacrosse Shaft fit in to their lacrosse investment? Find out below!
Playing lacrosse in north Idaho, the weather comes in to play a lot during both the fall and spring season. I would always blame a bad pass on the weather or my bagged out mesh. The best solution I have found to extreme weather conditions is, wax mesh. If you want the best performance out of your wax mesh, East Coast Dyes is what you are looking for.
Billy Nguyen, of LaxAllStars, breaks down the Surgeon 10 lacrosse head by STX in his latest Gear Review. The review is based on a 10 point scale, see what kind of score Billy thinks it deserves.
We got a nice little package at LAS HQ a few weeks back with 4 preformed Gonzo Mesh pieces (2 white, 2 glow-in-the-dark). “Gonzo Mesh is a special coated mesh covered in a secret recipe of ingredients that makes it superior to traditional soft or hard mesh pieces in every aspect. Traditional mesh pieces bag out and become inconsistent and unusable in the elements. Wax mesh pieces tent to lost their wax coating in a rapid fashion.”
Colton Raichl of Lacrosse All Stars reviews the Charge Sci-Ti lacrosse shaft made by Under Armour. He has used the shaft in games all fall, now he’s ready to let you know his honest opinion.
A couple weeks back, Andrew Ratzke reviewed the classic Proton Power, and had the usual issues with the stick (a tad flimsy, and tough to string), so as soon as I got my hands on a NEW Proton Power by STX, I had to see if any improvements had been made. Is the head tougher? Is it easier to string? If the answer to those two questions is yes, the Proton Power will take a big step up in the ratings department.
Nike has been slowly getting their foot in the door for a few years now. Their explosion in popularity in the Lakota head is what helped Nike really get some exposure. Now with the Ceo U, they are looking to build on that growth. Let’s get down to brass tax with an LAS Gear Review!
The Warrior Dolomite 13 shaft is one of the lightest shafts on the market right now. Designed to provide players with maximum performance without the weight of heavier metal blends, this shaft is both sturdy and good looking.
The STX Proton Power has been a classic ever since Paul Rabil rocked the blue, black and white versions of the head at Hopkins. While it was designed to score, this head can do it all.
With its big release date finally here, we take a look at Gait’s newest offering, the Recon XLU head!
The Wonderboy is a shaft that’s been around for a few years, and with staying power like that you would expect it to be a great shaft. So how does the newest edition of the Wonderboy stack up?
The Edge is famous for being an elite defensive head, and while this incarnation is no different, it does provide more versatility due to its universal specs and “Superlight” construction. As an offensive player, I was curious to see how I’d like this head, and was overall impressed with how it performed.
When Bryan Jenkins first started creating Musket lacrosse shafts, he had one goal in mind. That goal was to bring reasonably priced, high performance lacrosse shafts to his players, who play in non traditional areas. Bryan coaches lacrosse in Montana and he created Musket shafts with HIS players in mind. There are two composite Musket shafts, one black, and one white.
A few weeks back, one of our readers notified us about Musket Lacrosse and the great things they were doing for lacrosse players. I reached out to them and was able to have a few conversations with the man behind the scenes, Bryan Jenkins, to learn more about Musket Lacrosse and their product offerings.
I got to check out the Nike Lakota head, which has been out for a while and has emerged as a high school favorite, and I was pretty impressed with the product. It’s a really good option for a youth, high school, or post-collegiate player because it’s pretty tough, has a solid price point, and is a charm to string for the most part.
