That Old Lacrosse Head: Double Brine Shotgun

Welcome to That Old Lacrosse Head! The Brine Shotgun and the Shotgun II came out in the late 1980s. Today I’m fixing up two Brine Shotgun heads.

Welcome to That Old Lacrosse Head! Today I’m fixing up two Brine Shotgun heads. One will go back to CityLax to help Grow The Game in NYC, and one will go back to a big supporter of CityLax, Howard Borkan! It’s time to take a couple of old Brine Shotgun heads and bring them up to today’s standard of stringing… let’s get after it!

The Brine Shotgun and the Shotgun II came out in the late 1980s. The offset revolution wouldn’t take place for another six years or so (thanks to Flip Naumburg’s “scooped” head), and during this time a head like the Shotgun was really considered to be top of the line. The Brine Magnum came out in 1981, and that head was a more basic predecessor of the Shotgun. The Magnum was one of the first pinched plastic heads. The Shotgun was a great follow up project for Brine, and any player on the field could easily use one, with the obvious exception of goalies.

If I didn’t have to give both of these heads back to me people, I might have kept one for myself and made it my gamer. Personally, I love the Brine Shotgun and used one in high school (and even a little bit in college!). Let’s dice these two Shotguns up and make them pretty!
