Earlier today, Maverik Lacrosse (an LAS sponsor) announced the release of its first ever line of women’s equipment and apparel. Development of the new product line was led by former Northwestern standout Aly Josephs who is now the Category Manager for Maverik Women’s Lacrosse.
From lacrosse uniforms to new products, helmets, pads, sticks and more, our Gear section has it all. Your source for the newest lax gear and equipment!
As many of you already know, Maverik Lacrosse recently announced its new ROME NXT lacrosse gloves for the 2013-14 season. When we were at LXM Utah last month, we asked Billy Bitter to fill us in about the gloves and what it’s like to work at a company like Maverik.
Ever notice those unsightly marks on the inside of your lacrosse head? Those ball burns are a result of friction and appear over time. Sure they add character to your stick but if you’re ever looking to simply erase those dark marks, I’ve got a Lax Hack for you!
Starting at $125, the Nike Huarache 4 LX lacrosse cleat is available in seven solid base material colors, plus for an extra few bucks, seven “chroma” colors that make the NIKEiD customizer extra fun to play with too.
There is something to be said for basic, get-down-to-business apparel, both athletic and otherwise. I don’t mind that there are so many manufacturers of apparel out there, but I am slightly concerned that the focus isn’t where it needs to be most of the time. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’re starting to get to leather jogging pants levels in some cases.
If you’re a dedicated lacrosse player, odds are you’re putting in a decent amount of time on the wall. You’ll probably be scooping the occasional groundball off the pavement or hard packed dirt. These rough surfaces will eventually take a toll on your scoop and topstring. In order to keep your topstring from completely fraying and giving out on you, we have a great little Lax Hack from Justin at Stylin Strings.
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!
This post is an oldie but goodie in the LAS Community Forum that has gained a lot of new discussion over the last few weeks. It’s all about wood lacrosse sticks, and what type of wood is best.
A new sponsor is emerging for one of the professional lacrosse leagues… can you guess which league we’re talking about, and which sponsor we’re hinting at? Here is a little “extra” info, to get you guessing!
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.
A couple weekends ago we were lucky enough to make it down to LXM 801 in Orem, UT. I caught a peek of Matt Russell and Johnny Rodriguez’s goalie clinic and I noticed something a little different about Matt’s pocket. One of the high school guys, focused on the lesson, pulled Matt aside when he […]
Only a couple of months after releasing their new and improved Gen4 shafts, Epoch is now getting set to also release their Gen5 shafts onto the market. The Gen4 shafts were lighter than the Gen3 shafts, and had a slightly different look. The Gen5 shafts take things a bit further, and offer Reload Technology that helps the shaft snap back into shape.
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.
I found this older lacrosse ball a while back, and it was a truly great find. I was running a camp, and doing a ball hunt, and I thought I’d found just another lost nugget at first. Then I pulled it out from under the bleachers, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was totally weird!
With its big release date finally here, we take a look at Gait’s newest offering, the Recon XLU head!
Greg Gurenlian drops knowledge on us when it comes to selecting the best head for taking face offs. He’s got no brand bias, and gives you the two KEY characteristics you want in any head, if you want to be dominant at the X…
This simple Lax Hack will keep your shaft from “cookie cuttering” your rubber end cap. Personally I don’t use rubber butt ends anymore but I used to use this trick to keep my shafts from ripping apart the rubber and exposing the metal. Not only is an uncovered butt end dangerous but it’s also illegal and you’ll be putting your team at risk for an unnecessary penalty.
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?
