I recently had the chance to check out the new Savage XPro 7075 shafts from Savage X Lacrosse, and today I’m excited to share my review with the worldwide lacrosse community.
Savage X Lacrosse is a new equipment manufacturer based out of Los Angeles, California, where the company creates all its custom colors through a special anodization process.
Their mission and unidentified prior history in the game is also notable!
Over the years our factory has been contracted to produce products for many major lacrosse brands; from mesh and string of all types, to shafts to safety equipment. Through this experience we learned what works – and what does not. In 2014 we decided to combine our experience, talent and expertise not only in manufacturing, but also in marketing, retailing and branding, launching our own brand, Savage X Lacrosse. Our goal is to provide the best quality lacrosse equipment available, while at the same time helping to grow the lacrosse community and “unity in diversity” spirit that defines the sport, to an ever-expanding international market.
Here’s the awesome explanation from “fat Mark Hammel” (compliment, of course) I mentioned in my gear review video above:
Savage XPro product specs via Lax Unlimited:
Through the anodizing process, the XPRO Premium shaft is submerged in an electrochemical solution which imbues the shaft with color, binding it directly into the titanium itself, resulting in a handle free of the weight of paints and primers which can chip and ding with use. The anodization process provides an ultra-light shaft that is supremely durable, allowing for a lightning quick response time, dead-accurate shooting, superior ball control and able to withstand even the most diabolical brutality.
– Average Weight: 162 grams
