Today we’re checking out the Brine Prophecy head on That Old Lacrosse Head! The Brine Prophecy is a classic crazy head. Back in the mid 2000s, Brine came up with the idea of adding floating rubber fingers to their head design, tried something truly different, and it didn’t work out… but that means that players of today can pick up crazy heads for cheap, so it’s all good.
I can’t even remember where I picked this head up, but I know that I’ve had it for years now, and I think I bought it for $20. There is just no way I paid more than that! At the end of the day, it’s not a terrible head at all. It’s not a great head, but if you can string it right, it’s totally usable and could provide seasons of use to any level of player.
I had to come up with a different way of doing my sidewalls because of the rubber fingers, so check out what I came up with. It resulted in a super defined channel, and an incredibly usable, but weird looking, stick!

As you can see in the video above, I used knots on the plastic sidewall holes, and pulled down three mesh rows tightly. After that, I stopped doing any knots, and just went straight through the rubber fingers, keeping the mesh pulled down and somewhat tight. The channel is unreal, and the stick throws nicely. The ball does not want to come out of the pocket, but it’s also legal! Perfection achieved.
