2015 East Coast Dyes Carbon
In 2014, East Coast Dyes exploded into the lacrosse handle market with a composite handle called the ECD Carbon and in 2015 the latest line of Carbons have taken the lacrosse world by storm. The 2015 Carbon included the features players know and love, such as a unique and comfortable shape, a textured grip, and Flex5 Technology, along with an improved strength to weight ratio.
The key to the Carbon’s success is the advanced composite materials and manufacturing processes, which allow the Carbon to flex in a controlled manner when shooting. This controlled flex provides an unmatched snap and feel to every shot and leads to increased shot velocity. On the East Coast Dyes 10 point flex scale; the Carbon is a comfortable Flex5, making the Carbon a great option for those who are used to the feel of traditional alloy handles.
As an added bonus to the performance attributes, the Carbon is also one of the strongest composite handles in lacrosse. When testing the Carbon and benchmarking it against other handles in the industry, it was quickly noticed that forces, which would typically dent or break some alloy handles, simply bounced off of the Carbon leaving no traceable damage. This type of testing was directly relatable to a handle receiving a check during game play.
Even with all of these characteristics, the most important aspect of the Carbon is the value. The 30” Carbon is available for $99.99, which is a steal for a handle that performs as good, if not better than many of the higher priced competitors.
